Are you wondering where the Manhattan Prep GMAT App fits into your study routine? You shouldn’t just use it to work through lengthy sets of questions.

Instead, think of the app as a way to turn down time into study time: every time you’d otherwise be idly surfing the Internet or playing mobile games, load up the app and do a few minutes of review.
