Qualcomm, New Delhi
I found the course I’d enrolled for appealing and comprehensive. The platform was evenly split between Verbal and Quant. I found a course appealing and comprehensive. And also had adequate material for analytical writing! I mostly relied on the mock tests and the feedback that was delivered to me at the end of that.
The feedback was very insightful and it really pinpointed my weak points and that gives you a good insight into what exactly are your weaknesses and what you really read to improve on.
Apart from that, what I believe really helped me achieve my target score of GRE was the GRE vocabulary app that Galvanized has on the Playstore.
Galvanize Test Prep course I think is a one-stop solution – you really don’t need to refer to any other material out there in the market. You should just follow your GRE study plan that is outlined in your course, keep in touch with your course manager and pay attention to the constant feedback you get. Thanks a lot again Galvanize.

GRE Score- 336 Verbal- 169 Quant- 167
Bangladesh University of engineering and technology
I’m a recent graduate of Electronic Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology. I recently took the GRE exam and scored a 336 in total (169 in Verbal & 167 in Quant). I was looking for quality GRE vocab apps when I came across the Galvanize vocab app and I really liked it. I then did some research and found their free GRE diagnostic test on their website. I took the test and I really loved it. That’s why I chose to sign up for their services. One of the things I really loved about Galvanize is that they give you a fixed study schedule based on your performance in the diagnostic test. It was amazing because it gave me daily activities for each of the 45 days that I’d signed up for. My experience was very intensive.
This I felt was in sharp contrast to other GRE prep service providers who only give you access to the question pool and leave you to it. The Quant questions were constantly being updated and I thought they were really good. There is a very interactive discussion section where you can discuss and get your doubts cleared by the Verbal & Quant expert. I really liked the practice tests and the mock tests as well. I took 5 mock tests which were amazing because they really did simulate the real GRE test. They’ve done a really good job of having their mock tests be as close as possible to the real GRE. They also assign a personal coach (“course manager”) to every student. My course manager followed up with me every few days to ensure I was on track. This interactive experience I had was amazing. I do not know which other service providers can claim to provide such a level of personalization. I highly recommend Galvanize to anybody looking for that personalized touch to their GRE preparation.

Galvanize on its own is a good program. Some of the features I liked most were:
- The Vocab Prep App is a user friendly application that actually helps drives results. One of the most effective learning tools that I have experienced so far.
- The mock tests are of good quality and very close in difficulty with the actual exam.
- The Galvanize GRE prep App helps with learning on-the-go. Again a very smooth experience just as in the case with vocab app.
- The Essay type question templates are very good.
Overall, my experience with Galvanize has been productive and fruitful. I was engaged with the whole experience and was able to score good with it’s help (331/340).

I would strongly recommend Galvanize Test Prep for the GRE. I prepared for 2.5 months, averaging 3-4 hrs/day
For the Quant Section – The tests on the online platform of Galvanize have a plethora of questions for each topic with different difficulty levels which would be the perfect preparation for test day.
By practising on the Galvanize platform as well as additionally on Readtheory, the tricks to solve the RC’s can easily be mastered. Galvanize will also personally guide you if you are finding it difficult to understand on your own. I also found that the Galvanize Vocab builder was very helpful when it came to learning GRE words.
That being said how you prepare is very important – Focus on your mistakes and why you made it. That is the most important thing which will increase your marks drastically. Thank you Galvanize!
