PowerScore was created by Dave Killoran in 1997. He wanted to create less expensive and more efficient test preparation courses. They offer test preparation for the LSAT, GRE, GMAT, ACT, and SAT. PowerScore aims provide quality customer service, and help students maintain high standards.
PowerScore offers a large selection of services. For many tests, they offer full-length (which includes in-person classes), live online, on demand, accelerated, advanced, and targeted courses. Customers can pick the course that best meets their learning style and academic needs.
In addition, PowerScore offers private tutoring, with services ranging from five to 64 hours. Customers can also purchase test prep books and speak with admission consultants.
PowerScore offers a large selection of free information. Their website has a free help section for each test. These sections answer basic questions about each test, such as how to register for the test, how it is scored, and test day tips. PowerScore also offers free starter kits and practice tests. They also have special services for each test, for example they offer a free webinar and in-person seminar for the GRE.
PowerScore emphasizes great customer service. Students interested in their program can live chat on their website, email, or call customer service representatives. Their website is also easy to navigate and very clear.
PowerScore is unique in allowing students to connect with instructors. Many courses allow students to call an instructor hotline, send emails, or participate in a discussion forum.
PowerScore’s prices are not as high as some competitors; however, they are still more expensive than other companies. For example, GMAT courses are $995 for full-length, $495 for on demand, and $395 for accelerated. Their prices vary dramatically based on the test and selected package. Private tutoring is $150 to $175 per hour depending on the test (tutoring packages offer lower hourly rates).
PowerScore has a no refund-no return policy, with the exception of damaged products. Many competitors offer money-back guarantees and improved score guarantees. Dissatisfied students will not receive their money back.
