"GMAT was looking to be a daunting task since I had never taken a computer based test of such a time duration. But the Experts' advice really worked and took the fear out of my mind. The study material was extremely good as it contains the relevant and the best of all topics from various sources and at a very reasonable rate.Hence the quality of the material far exceeds the cost. AWA template recommended is in sync with what is expected from GMAT takers and covers all aspects of analytical writing evaluators are looking for. All this helped to me score a good 740 with a scaled score of 5.0 in AWA."

The Texas Christian University TCU was founded in 1873 in Thorp Spring, Texas by brothers Addison and Randolph Clark and named as AddRan Male and Female College. The School moved to Waco in 1895 and was named as AddRan Christian University in 1889. Later on, the name changed to Texas Christian University in 1902. The burning of the Waco campus led to the shift of TCU to downtown Fort Worth in 1910. By 1911, three new buildings were established in the present campus area.
