Incredibly Helpful

I watched every Greenlight video and found their test prep questions incredibly helpful (i.e. question prompt, answer the question, see the explanation). Highly recommended. If I could do it over again I would have ONLY used Greenlight.

Clear and Concise

Everything was clear and concise! I really liked the organization of each video. The tips for this class helped me to improve my studying for the GRE last year. A good course with a lot of necessary knowledge about GRE. I really enjoyed this course, when I took it last year. Great tips! They really made sense and made things easier. I just hope I can remember them all! Provides very nice strategies for test taking beyond simply the ability to solve for quantitative problems. It makes easy understanding of mathematics, it’s a great lesson. I really appreciate it. Thanks a lot.

A Lot of Time Saving Tips

I tried Greenlight on a whim while sampling a few different resources, and I got hooked on the presenting style pretty quickly. I started by glossing over some simple topics, and ended up learning a lot of time-saving tips in examples I thought would be mundane. Overall, the format of the material really resonated with me. I found Greenlight to be an efficient use of me efforts.

You Are the Best!

I learnt more for the AWA section than the paid guides I bought. Keep up the good work. Thank you so much for your great, adorable and useful videos. You are the best! Really great.

Very Effective

Thank you for summarizing at the end all strategies and telling us when to use them. Your way of teaching is very effective.

YouTube user: Wedad

You Are a Lifesaver!

Dude, thanks a lot. You have the best GRE prep in YouTube by FAR. Really, awesome job! You are a lifesaver!! Thank you for these videos!!

Well Worth the Money

In a nutshell, the content and instruction for the Math module is outstanding and matchless. The instructor provides the techniques to solve the problems and breaks the parts into easy steps. If you follow the steps, the problems can be solved. Very impressive Math module. The verbal section is also very detailed with many examples. I finally understood how to find assumptions in arguments after watching the videos. I have taken other courses but remained confused but these videos helped clarified many concepts. I never had a math teacher as good as the instructor of these videos. Will be well worth the money.

Massive Thanks to Brent

Massive thanks to Brent, because I found out the website from one of his posts. I watched all of the videos for Verbal and Writing sections.

Simple Yet Comprehensive

The Greenlight Test Prep platform is a simple yet comprehensive way of getting to know the exam and understanding how the test makers are going to test you or rather try to make sure that you know your stuff and are adept at recognizing tricky questions. The key is to go by the concept. Remember the mantra: understand, practice and improve on the weaklings. Despite the fact that you might know all the math formulae and have a deep understanding of the concepts as well as you are well versed with the vocabulary, the most important thing for the exam is practice and time management. My experience with this platform has been an amazing one.
