TestMasters Review

TestMasters is home to high-quality courses offered in various formats, but they really stand out when it comes to one-on-one tutoring programs and supplementary learning materials.

The Good

Excellent quizzing and drilling resources

Practice is a critical part of preparing for the challenges of the GRE. TestMasters shines in this area, providing you with access to an extensive collection of practice resources, including full-length practice tests, a quiz bank with thousands of sample GRE questions, vocabulary and content drilling tools, and interactive study games. While these kinds of resources are widely available from bookstores and online publishers, it sure is nice to access such a deep store of resources along with the price of your course.

Comprehensive tutoring options

TestMasters offers on-site, online, and telephone tutoring options, each with a variety of flexible scheduling plans to choose from. If you’re looking for maximum flexibility, enroll in the hourly tutoring plan. Alternatively, save a little money by paying for 10, 20, or 45 hours of tutoring in advance. The 45-hour Platinum Package provides personal training equivalent to a complete GRE prep course. TestMasters tutors are available to meet you in person in cities across the country. Online support and telephone tutoring are available as well. Online tutoring sessions utilize a video-based course delivery platform with an interactive whiteboard tool to provide a very personal, collaborative tutoring environment.

Three hours of tutoring included in every course

Whether you opt for an on-site, live online, or on-demand course, as a TestMasters student you are entitled to three hours of private online or telephone tutoring with a TestMasters tutor. This is a feature of TestMasters courses that really stands out in the industry and just about any student is sure to benefit from it. Since you get to schedule your tutoring hours and pick the topics of discussion, you can recruit the help you need at just the right time to maximize your learning.

The Bad

On-site courses in only three states

The TestMasters GRE Live course is only available in limited on-site locations in the states of California, New York, and Texas. While none of the top GRE prep companies conduct classroom courses in all 50 states, most of the other top companies in the industry offer many more classroom sites than TestMasters does. Kaplan, for example, has locations in 41 states and Washington, D.C. The Princeton Review conducts live courses in 25 states. If you can’t find a TestMasters course near you, consider looking into one of these providers.

Lack of student satisfaction guarantees

Several of the top GRE prep companies guarantee students the right to retake a course for free if they are dissatisfied with either their level of preparation or their GRE test score. For example, Kaplan students are entitled to retake a course for free no matter what score they achieve after their first course attempt. TestMasters offers no such guarantees. If this kind of guarantee appeals to you, take a look at companies like Kaplan and The Princeton Review.
