Bhavin and his partners spent 3-6 months on people powered test prep – students teaching other students. They realized later that people didn’t like this process.

Bhavin’s One Idea
After he and his fellow classmates went through studying for the GMAT exams, Bhavin found that the whole process was frustrating and ineffective. Some of his classmates spent upwards of $10,000 in preparation for this exam to get into the business school. He and his partners created Magoosh to offer an affordable and more effective way for students to undergo this examination process.
