Nice class with friendly instructor 6/15/2018

I was looking for an in person class because I felt that it would be the best format to help me improve my GRE score. I took the Xceptional Prep GRE Course and had a friendly instructor and a good experience. There is a lot to do and I tried to complete most of it, but it really did help, and I liked coming to class each week. more

Son and friend had the SAT course, was very positive 12/18/2017

Both kids liked the course very much and we found it very positive as parents because their final scores, both of them, we're much higher than when they started. My guess is it wasn't exactly fun but both said it wasn't boring and they did want to go to class each week which is a real testament. more

Higher Score from Xceptional Prep GRE Course 12/11/2017

Improved my score from the class. I was scoring in the low 160's on both V and Q, but after the class and all of the work I scored high 160's on both. I put about 10 hours per week into doing all of the work so it isn't something you just automatically get. I think the improvement is fantastic! more

Unreliable/Insructor was a no show 9/27/2017

2 Sundays in a row, the instructor was a no show and there were only 6 classes for $425 at 3hrs every Sunday at Minor Hall in Berkeley. The main office can't be contacted and no replies via email. more

Great stuff 9/9/2017

I got at 1600 after the class more

Before class, 1160 SAT, after class 1290 7/5/2017

Would I say that my score improvement was worth it? I dunno I didn't pay for it my parents did. But I now have a good chance of getting into some schools that I really want to go to in So Cal. The verbal part of the course was the best part for me and the SAT essay. I'm good at math. I liked working on the problems in class. Proud of my score. more

My score went up, and that's all that matters 7/2/2017

My score increased, significantly, after the course. That's all that matters right? A+++++ more

Instructor actually cared 6/30/2017

The instructor I had, James, cared about us as a group and put effort in to make sure we were keeping up and were motivated. He was a fun guy and wanted to see my success. That was the main reason why I took the in person course because I wanted someone there to help me and guide me. He did. The class was great and I went above my school's cut off so I'm going to be admitted. more

Test Anxiety and Stress 6/18/2017

I've always worried about tests like the GRE that are about analyzing problems. I also have test anxiety overall. One of the reasons I chose this program over others was the focus on psychology of the test. It wasn't a big part of the course but I felt it helped me at least a little bit. I liked their approach and they had a lot of strategy and technqiues for the different questions. I wish there was more time to review but I understood the format when I signed up for the class. I would say that for those with test anxiety it was helpful and useful, as well as the strategy and techniques. more

Mindset and Being There 5/26/2017

I wanted a class that was real, not on the internet so I chose this company. I learn better when its with other people, just like back in school before the whole everything is online thing. What I found is that it helped my mindset because it kept me grounded and structured, and I felt compelled to go to class each week. That's what kept me focused. I did better. more

Highly recommended 5/25/2017

I wanted to take a GRE course, but money has been and always is real tight. I pay for college through scholarships, loans, and parents + work. I thought that I would do a lot better with a real course than reading up with a book. I chose these guys because of the price and that it was a full length course. I did better than when I started and I think I did much better than reading a book alone. I would highly recommend them. more

SAT Class provided score improvement for my son 5/12/2017

My son increased his SAT score by going to the class. I had to prod him to go each week, but he did, and he did at least some of the outside class assignments, I know for sure a few tests. He took a practice test at school before the course and then we got his scores back from the official exam. An improvement. Not sure if its good enough for the schools he's looking at but, it put him in a much better running. He might have done better if he was more dedicated, but he's a good kid and at least he tried. more

SAT Prep course was outstanding 5/11/2017

The course provided a math review, math review in the review book, math strategy, math techniques, and watching out for traps. It was great for my son who has difficulty in math. They really did help. He scored better and that's more than enough for both of us. more

Xceptional Prep GRE Course 5/8/2017

Their course is a very good review program and incorporates many well known learning methods into their teachings. One of the biggest values of the course is their ability to teach you how to work through problems. You get to learn how to work through the problems logically, step by step, these are things I couldn't have done myself more

Xceptional Prep Review GRE 5/6/2017

I must say that I admire a company that can offer a real course for a huge discount, with an excellent instructor in a classroom based environment. They focus on classroom based courses and my GRE course was with 14 other students. It was a great experience and my score went way up. I thought about other formats but learning in a class wth other REAL people was the best way for me to learn and improve. Xceptional Prep provided a great GRE Course. I also liked their style. more

Caring Staff 4/28/2017

Xceptional Prep has really caring staff on the phone and they were very helpful. I did a phone registration after they answered my questions, nice people. I told them about my low scores and need for help (lots of help). It was kind of embarrassing, but I needed help with my GRE exam. This was the only prep option in my area. And it ended up being a great course. Thank you Xceptional Prep. more

This is an excellent course, its the Up Up 4/27/2017

What a great course from Xceptional Prep. English is not my first language student, but I have a high TOEFL. I was more concerned about math than verbal though, funny! I didn't really care about writing as my program does not require it. I needed help reading quickly however, and they provided strategies and techniques, it was good. more

The Score I Needed, I Got IT! 3/8/2017

This is a great program that helped me get the score I needed to be accepted into graduate school. I worked really hard during the course and did most of the outside work (homework). The course gave me insight into patterns on the test, things I wouldn't have seen on my own, but are now so easy to see. It was something that I needed to work at, but if you put the time in its doable and you can do it. The math review was helpful. If you are willing to put the time, effort, and work in I would suggest taking the class. Got the score I needed! more
