Premium Quality Teaching Testimonies of Students in LEARNFAST REVIEW AND TUTORIAL HUB – JAN 2022 ONLINE NMAT

1. ALESTE, RON JOSHUA  (99+)
UPLB – D Veterinary Medicine

At the beginning of my LEARNFAST journey, I realized how much I did not know and how much I have forgotten from my years of focusing on my profession. Studying as an animal doctor trained me to be objective, be logical, and have a solid background in my subjects. Brute memorization and a lot of conceptual understanding were needed back then. I would only be confident in answering unless I knew the concepts by heart, which required accumulation of a lot of information. I was a crammer and a procrastinator back in my college days so the thought of requiring myself to learn and re-learn a multitude of concepts from a variety of subjects in less than 3 months was overwhelming. With all this in mind, I believed that getting a high score in NMAT was just wishful thinking.

The innovative methods introduced by LEARNFAST and the pace of activities allowed me to encourage myself to be disciplined, to manage time wisely, and most of all, to be resourceful – that is – to accept my limitations, to understand that it is okay not to know everything, and to use whatever is presented to me make seemingly complicated matters simpler. I regained confidence with myself in the process and with the addition of comprehensive review sessions, brain-stimulating exercises, and encouraging teachers, I was able to overcome my doubts about how I would do in the examination.

The whole LEARNFAST experience and the testmanship skills I gained helped me a lot in my NMAT. After taking the test, I was sure to have done well. I had set my eyes on a “99+” not only because of what opportunities the high score open but also, to prove that if I can take the step to believe in myself and in what I can do, more than anyone, no goal is too impossible a feat. And I did. Now, I am more than ready to take on medical school with the right mindset. Thank you, LEARNFAST.

2. ANG, ADRIAN (99+)
UP MANILA – BS NURSING

At first, I was worried for the NMAT as I had not touched on the concepts needed for the NMAT for a long time. Also, I had work at the same time I was preparing for the exam. However, with the help of the system of problem solving and critical thinking emphasized in the discussion, as well as the way how the discussions focused on the most important topics, I was able to gain confidence in answering the exam come the day I was to take my exam. The program also helped me structure my time reviewing in such a way that I was able to cover most (if not all) of the topics that I needed to review for the NMAT in a shorter amount of time, even with my busy work schedule. In the end, I was able to get a percentile rank beyond what I expected. I would like to thank the Lord as well as the help of the Learnfast team in helping me achieving more that what I expected.

3. ALESSANDRA JUSTINE CHUA (99+)      
UST-4TH YEAR BS MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY STUDENT

When I took the college entrance exams, I merely relied on my stock knowledge and didn’t review at all, which resulted to unsatisfactory results (I wasn’t accepted in my first-choice university and program). It was then that I realized how challenging it was for me to self-study for standardized tests.

So, as NMAT was nearing, I enrolled in Learnfast so that I’ll be prepared this time! Learnfast is the primary reason how I achieved a high PR which I didn’t even think was possible for my capabilities. I enrolled in their budget package (because I already reviewed for the NMAT before) which was more than enough, as it consisted of lectures on testmanship, Part 2 topics, and mock exams! Answering the modules and mock exams provided were the most helpful for me, as I became used to the time pressure and became familiar with the pace needed to finish the exam (this was especially helpful for the quanti, IR, and PA subtests.) Most fortunately as well, around 5-10 questions from the review came out in the actual NMAT!

Thank you so much to the Learnfast team, especially to Doc Junie and Ms. Bianca, for their guidance and encouragement throughout my review. If you’re like me who doesn’t make study schedules or has a hard time self-studying, enroll in Learnfast! Just do the tasks they give, and you’ll surely do great in the NMAT! 😄

4. LOUISE CLAIRE ORTIZ (99)
UP MANILA – 4TH YEAR BS BIOLGY

I can say with great confidence that Learnfast really helped me in getting a 99 on my NMAT. Months before the NMAT, I started collecting various review materials that I could get online because I wanted to prepare as early as I could. However, I felt really overwhelmed when I started browsing all of the materials because it looked like there were too many to study than what I needed and what I can efficiently digest. Due to this, I was not able to actually study the review materials I collected.

I am thankful to Learnfast because their review classes gave me a clear sense of direction. They emphasize what topics I should focus on, making the review less burdensome and overwhelming. Due to personal struggles that I had to handle along with other responsibilities at home and in school, I only started religiously reviewing for the NMAT in December but all thanks to Learnfast’s review tips, I was still able to review efficiently. My only regret is that I should have reviewed the mock and CL practice tests before taking the NMAT because those tests provided by Learnfast will surely provide you a clear depiction of the style of questions that would actually be on the NMAT.

5. SHANE AUDREY LIM (99)         
UST-4TH YR BS PHARMACY STUDENT

Balancing internship, board review and the NMAT was nowhere near easy but Learnfast really helped us in instilling discipline and commitment in preparing for the exam. They were generous by heaps in giving us practice tests, notes and discussions which enabled me to prepare well for the NMAT. Also, Learnfast helped us establish the foundational knowledge we needed and molded in us testmanship skills in times of emergency. Their style of teaching was practical, simplified, and understandable. They were the review center I was looking for.

My preparation for the NMAT, personally, wasn’t the most intense and I had really low scores, which were very disheartening, but Learnfast helped streamline and simplify what I needed to study and practice on. I honestly was just hoping for a PR of 95 (& above, God willing) but I was able to get a 99 because of their high yield learning materials & God’s favor. Once again, thank you sirs & ma’am!

6. VINCE ADRIAN ILAGAN (98)
UST-4TH YEAR BS MEDICAL BIOLOGY STUDENT

I knew from the upperclassmen that review centers will help me get a higher NMAT score. When I enrolled in Learnfast, there are a lot of techniques that I learned which I may not have encountered if I did not enroll in a review center. All of us can study. But with Learnfast, I realized that there is a more efficient way of studying to obtain a higher score. NMAT is not your typical academic test. There are patterns and concepts exclusive for NMAT. With the help of Learnfast, I took advantage of knowing these patterns and strategies. I only have little time available since I’m a graduating student. I learned from LEARNFAST how to study smart and use what little time I have to produce a high yield score.

 In part 1 of NMAT, I learned a lot of techniques in Inductive Reasoning, Perceptual Acuity and Verbal. My most favorite technique was from the inductive reasoning where I use the skip pair and continuous pairing to find the next sequence. It was 100 percent accurate in all of the mock tests. The trick with comparing the long texts in perceptual acuity was also accurate. At first, I struggled with these areas but with the techniques I learned, I was faster in answering my mocks.

In the special areas, Ms. Bianca was very adamant in using conceptual understanding. This method made me realize that I don’t need to know everything by the book. I can work with the knowledge I have and eliminate choices to produce the best possible answer. In LEARNFAST, I learned to study smart not just to study hard.

7. JONAH BONGCAYAO (PR: 98)
UP DILIMAN BS CIVIL ENGR GRADUATE

During the time I was looking for an NMAT review center, I was recommended by a friend of a friend that Learnfast is where I should apply if I wanted to aim for a high percentile score that will help me qualify into medical schools. As someone who decided to go through a non-traditional route in pursuit of a medical degree—I have a degree in civil engineering—Learnfast helped me course through the subjects with ease as I had literally no background in Biology, Social Science, and I only studied General Chemistry during freshman year in college. Learnfast gives premium on a balance between testmanship skills and learning the required topics efficiently by offering a lot of practice tests. In this way, you do not only get to study the topics but also apply them through a practical approach of solving test questions. Learnfast exceeded my expectations as they aided me through my review for the NMAT. Although I initially enrolled 5 years ago in Learnfast, I can say that the same expectations I had were still exceeded when I enrolled 5 years later. And I highly appreciated it that they never forgot me as their previous student and still treated me with the same nurturing guidance and understanding when I enrolled earlier this year (during the time prior to my finally taking the NMAT). I can confidently vouch that I wouldn’t have gotten my percentile score if it were not for Learnfast, their assistance, and their training.

8. DANICA MAY CAÑON (PR: 97)
UP MANILA 4TH YEAR BS PUBLIC HEALTH STUDENT

As a full-time student who is also working, I had a hard time juggling the load of studying for NMAT with other responsibilities. I wasn’t able to study much as much as I want to especially near the exam period. However, the LEARNFAST sessions and test sheets helped me in familiarizing terms and concepts I had difficulty processing on my own. They helped narrow down the field of study to more digestible components we could understand and process. We were also taught testmanship skills among other tips to narrow down choices for questions too hard to solve or we lack knowledge of. They also guided us not just with the test content itself but with the workings of the NMAT and CEM like how to register, what will we need for the exam and even helped us troubleshoot issues we encountered taking the exam. 

The questions in the NMAT exam were actually really similar in structure with the modules we did with LEARNFAST. I initially had very low scores with the mock tests, but trying to understand the principles behind the questions helped me in increasing my score bit by bit. I was actually not good at Math, so quantitative, chemistry and physics were actually very scary for me but we were taught that there are other ways in solving numerical problems without fully computing them. That made the weight lighter, allowing me to be level-headed in addressing questions I had difficulty with. 

9. ROSANINA FRAGANTE (PR: 97) ANONYMOUS
UP MANILA – 5TH YEAR BS PHYSICAL THERAPY STUDENT

What I really like about Learnfast are the lecture videos; they are comprehensive and it allows you to have a deeper conceptual understanding of the topic. Other than the lecture videos, they give you a good set of practice questions that allows you to apply the knowledge that you’ve learned. Learnfast also gives their students tips on testmanship and how to approach the questions in the NMAT, which was helpful during the exam day itself. Thank you!

10. EDRIC BRIAN LUI (PR: 95)
ADMU – 4TH YEAR BS LIFE SCIENCES STUDENT

Thank you to the Learnfast Team for the review. They helped me a lot in training me for preparing for the NMAT. Going in, I did not know what to expect since I had limited knowledge in chem and physics. However, the Learnfast review helped me overcome those so that I could do my best for the test and try to get into my dream school. It also trained my mind for the inductive and quantitative exams. Will definitely recommend this to my friends and family. Once again thank you po to the Learnfast team!

LEARNFAST is a good place to learn especially for those that have a hard time studying on their own. You can trust them with guiding you to that coveted 90+ score. Thank you LEARNFAST!


11. JOAQUIN ALFONSO (94)
UST-4TH YEAR BS MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY STUDENT

The videos and lectures were all high-yield and helped me understand concepts that were either forgotten or completely unfamiliar. The mock tests really helped me simulate the test and made me more confident during the actual test date. The provided modules also helped me distribute each topic/subject evenly in my schedule without being overwhelmed by the countless concepts that I need to learn. Overall, Learnfast’s review material was more than enough to perform well during the NMAT. I was able to get 94 PR po, which is more than enough (I think) for the medical school (UST) I am applying to. Thank you po for being so kind and patient to your students!

NOV 2021 NMAT – Another magnificent triumph of UST- LEARNFAST STUDENTS

Competence, commitment, and compassion are known to be the strongest values Thomasians uphold to people and communities they serve.

HERMENEGILDO DUMLAO III (99+)
UST – BS BASIC HUMAN STUDIES STUDENT (LEAPMED)

I enrolled in LEARNFAST along with a group of friends because they were kind enough to offer a discount when a group reaches a number of people (kaya mag-aya na kayo! barkada bundle ika nga). I got the PREMIUM hectic learner’s packet because my program is exactly as the name states: super hectic. This offers a full access to the videos and their recordings so that you can insert them in your schedule. The review is structured and very easy to follow. You don’t need to think about it because they did it for you already. Just listen, take the mock test, and take note of your mistakes. That’s it! Along with that, Learnfast also closely monitors your progress, so they don’t catch you lacking. If time isn’t on your side, I’d definitely recommend LEARNFAST to learn fast . Love to all the instructors!

My NMAT experience:

The verbal part of the aptitude test had very long excerpts. Some of the questions allow you to skip to a certain paragraph to answer them but I always found myself reading all of the passages to answer the other items. Quantitative reasoning was a little easier than expected. the quantitative reasoning course in my packet definitely prepared me for that part. The hardest was inductive reasoning and also where I used my white board the most to map out whatever sequence they need me to find the next item for. My favorite part was perceptual acuity. The trick there is not to bother the reference image. Go right to the choices and scan for differences. Once you find one, then compare to the reference image to cross it out. It’s even easier for the perceptual acuity items with sentences as there’s often a difference in punctuation. The spelling is often hardest weed out. My eyes started hurting during the acuity parts.

For the special area tests, I did see some of the items from the review book. It’s either you know it or you don’t. Luckily I already have quite the background in Chemistry so I could dig deep into my mind how to do the converting and the limiting reagents.

Overall, not that nerve wracking. The review definitely helped me edge out a lot of points.

At first, I was really hesitant whether I should enroll in Learnfast, because it was costly, and an additional expense during the pandemic. However, let me tell you that the prices of the packages in Learnfast were really worth it. I am also grateful that they also offer lots of discounts, especially if you enroll early and as part of a big group.

Throughout the course of the review sessions, I saw how I improved in my test-taking skills. Learnfast teaches their students not only concepts, but also testmanship skills. Aside from showing you the topics you need to focus on, they also give you tips on how to answer questions you know little to nothing about. They teach you how to approach the inductive reasoning, and perceptual acuity subtests – the subtests I found to be the most difficult before I enrolled in Learnfast, and now to be actually quite easy (still challenging but easier than other subtests for me). They also teach students how to answer fast and correctly; very important for competitive time-pressured tests such as the NMAT.

The materials they gave were also complete. The practice tests, lecture materials, and reinforcement tests really helped me prepare for the NMAT. Their synchronous and asynchronous lectures were fully packed with the concepts you need to know for the exam. The instructors were also very accommodating to students. They also offer reinforcement or sit-in classes, depending on your package, which were also very helpful.

When the results came out, I did not expect myself to get a high percentile ranking. This semester was one of the most hectic semesters I’ve had, and I had little time to review for my NMAT. November was also the month when most students decided to take the NMAT, which meant that it was more competitive. Thankfully, even though I enrolled in Learnfast during the summer, the learnings given by Learnfast retained until the time I took my NMAT in November. The reinforcement classes they gave near my exam date recapped most of the necessary information, and also refreshed my test-taking mindset. I am also most grateful that they extended the access to the google drive of learning videos and materials. It gave the time I need to balance my NMAT review with my academic responsibilities.

With God’s grace, the help of the people around me, and the academic guidance Learnfast offered, I was able to get a PR exceedingly higher than my expectations. Thank you so much Learnfast! I am beyond grateful for your help, as this serves as a big step towards me realizing my dreams as a future doctor.

When I was preparing for the NMAT, I was VERY skeptical about review centers thinking that they were mostly just a waste of time and money. However, many of my classmates were taking review centers such as Learnfast and they had nothing but praise so I eventually gave Learnfast a shot. And, to be honest, after taking the NMAT and seeing my results, I could say that Learnfast really did become a huge part if not, the ONLY reason that I was able to achieve the PR that I got. Even though I was not able to follow their schedules for the live lectures due to the busy semester, all of their reading materials, recorded live lectures, asynchronous videos, mock tests and lecturers were very helpful in allowing me to learn and re-learn what I needed to know and how I could learn it in the most effective way possible. Their testmanship tips and tricks on how to answer the NMAT, especially with Part 1, was a very big help for me in answering the QUANTI and IR sections efficiently, allowing me to focus more time on the other sections which are usually my weaker side. I also appreciated with how I knew I was improving through their modules and mock tests, allowing me to focus on my weaker subjects while strengthening my stronger subjects. Without Learnfast, I honestly would have not gotten a high PR score and for that, thank you Dr. Mangahas, Ma’am Bianca and all of the Learnfast staff that made this possible! Truly a “bang for your buck” for someone who wants to have a high PR in the NMAT.

At first, I was not planning to enroll in a review center since I already many some learning materials acquired from the internet. However, I heard about the Learnfast from my friends who said that it was the best review center for NMAT. So, I decided to try it to at least acquire even more learning materials. As the review sessions go on, I realized that Learnfast isn’t the traditional spoon-feeding education that you see in other review centers. Learnfast literally taught us techniques to efficiently answer questions that even seem too difficult. Learning was not limited to the subjects covered by the NMAT per se, it includes from the very preparation (e.g., what is NMAT?) to the things that are recommended to do a few days before the actual exam day. In my case, I was not too confident with social sciences since I’m a biology major, not to mention my weakness in verbal ability. But Learnfast did a good job making these subjects appear easier, especially when they taught us the tricks in answering these questions with great ease. Overall, I’m so grateful to Learnfast for imparting to us their wisdom and helping us ace the NMAT. I recommend aspiring medical students to enroll in Learnfast to prepare for such medical examinations.

UP DILIMAN – 4TH YR BS MOLECULAR BIOLOGY & BIOTECHNOLOGY STUDENT

I actually enrolled in the hectic learners package because I was really busy this sem especially with my thesis & majors. I actually was not able to follow the intended schedule I envisioned to feel prepared and confident because of my other engagements. However, true to their name, Learnfast really helped me learn what I needed to learn to ace the NMAT fast. With their tips and tricks, I saw a huge improvement in my test-taking strategy especially in IR & PA — both of which are subjects that I would normally struggle with had I not been taught how to answer them strategically by Learnfast. Their reviewers in Social Sciences in particular also helped me a lot especially since my undergraduate degree did not really cover a lot of the topics in that field. I only consulted with their references and as they said, all of this is more than enough to get 99+! I am really thankful to Learnfast for being patient with me and consistently messaging me to ask for updates and to remind me to study. More than their very comprehensive review materials, I could feel that they cared about each and every student and their progress. Thank you so much Learnfast!

4. PATRICIA IRHENE V. TRAJANO (99+)
UP DILIMAN – 4TH YR BS BIOLOGY STUDENT

I would be the first in my family to go to med school so I had no idea what to expect, but Learnfast guided its students not just through their review materials but also through their tips and reminders for NMAT. I enrolled in the asynchronous section and they supplied me with multiple review materials that I didn’t even have to use other review materials I have already downloaded. They teach each concept effectively and efficiently which is why my analytical skills were refined. The review lectures and materials were incredibly rich with the necessary information that helped me achieve my PR. Learnfast also checks up on their students to make sure they are on the right track, despite having an asynchronous setting. I am 100% certain that I would not have achieved this score without their help. They have both quality and quantity in their materials and lectures because they have carefully picked out what the students really need. I considered a lot of other review centers (some of which were more expensive) before deciding on Learnfast, and it definitely was the right decision. Thank you so much Learnfast!

5. JEWEL MARIE N. MONTEVERDE (99+)
UP DILIMAN – 4TH YR BS CHEMISTRY STUDENT

Learnfast helped me a lot to achieve my goal PR. I was scared at first because I felt like I didn’t have enough time as I started studying only 2 months before my test date. In that 2 months, I attended all the sessions and was amazed by how Learnfast approached all of the concepts. They somehow made such a wide coverage easy to understand and remember. From teaching us smart test taking skills to applications instead of memorization, it really helped me a lot. I was hesitant at first to trust the methods taught to us on how to answer multiple choice tests but it was so effective especially for the questions I wasn’t familiar with. Learnfast also offers a lot of modules and mock tests that were really similar to the NMAT itself. I was worried because I’d get low scores answering them but I just kept practicing and it reflected in my NMAT PR. Take advantage of the uploaded lecture videos especially the modules and mock tests. It really helped to answer them again and again. I really appreciate Learnfast because they were responsive during the preparation process and I don’t think we can find that in any other review center. I’d ask questions a lot and they wouldn’t hesitate to answer and even provide explanations that deepened my understanding even more. Trust Learnfast with your NMAT review and you won’t regret it

6. DENICE MILLEN CANILAO (99+)
UP MANILA – 4TH YR BS BIOLOGY STUDENT

I was scared to take the NMAT because I know for myself that I wasn’t good in inductive reasoning and perceptual acuity. Those were my weaknesses even when I took college entrance tests. Learnfast’s modules helped me improve my scores in those subtests. As for Part 2, I wasn’t confident about SocSci. My college curriculum didn’t have a lot of social sciences in it. It’s good that the topics in Learnfast’s modules, especially for SocSci, are really well-chosen because I was still able to get a good score in this subtest even if I didn’t have a strong background on it.

7. ALEXIS ROCA (99+)
ADMU – 4TH YR BS BIOLOGY STUDENT

I was introduced to LEARNFAST through a friend, who had heard from his cousins that it was the best review center for NMAT. I didn’t really have plans to sign up since I was confident enough in my self-study skills, but I’m grateful that I did. More than lectures and notes, LEARNFAST provided plenty of reliable practice tests and exercises that helped me develop both my test-taking and critical thinking skills.

An often repeated sentiment was that memorizing concepts is not as important as understanding them and knowing how to identify the most appropriate answer even if you don’t know the topic. It’s impossible to master everything— I locked myself in my room to study for 1 month straight and I still felt unsure of my answers during the actual test. However, because I took all of the practice tests, I had enough practice applying both basic concepts and testmanship. I used to roll my eyes at it, but I’m fairly certain that testmanship was my saving grace during the NMAT. That is not to say that mastery of concepts is not important; however, given the amount of time to prepare and the sheer volume of topics, it would be more efficient to master at least the basics and develop deeper understanding of them through application in practice tests and mock exams.

LEARNFAST pushes you hard. They’re extremely hands-on— they check up on you, remind you to understand (not just read), and nudge you to send your scores for the practice tests. It may be a bit overwhelming, but it helps to have someone push you towards excellence. For me, it helped me achieve things I never really thought I had the potential to. Overall, more than just test-taking skills, LEARNFAST taught me the importance of not only working hard, but working both smarter and harder.

UP MANILA – 4TH YR BS PUBLIC HEALTH STUDENT

Taking the NMAT during one of the busiest semesters I’ve experienced in my college was something I really struggled with mentally, emotionally and physically. However enrolling in Learnfast really helped me manage the stress and anxiety that NMAT could bring. Every review session really built discipline in me to put priority in NMAT in the midst of other commitments. I felt like I was really equipped with learnings both in testmanship and how to solve each problems conceptually. I am grateful to Learnfast for being persistent in teaching us the different concepts, in giving us review questions, and training us for each subtest. It was the skills and knowledge I learned in the review that helped me maintain my composure and confidence when taking the exam, and really gave me a push towards the high NMAT percentile I was aiming for.

Thank you to LEARNFAST for your constant support and efforts throughout this whole ride!

10. MIGUEL GABRIEL URRUTIA
UST – 4TH YR BS MEDICAL BIOLOGY STUDENT

Before my preparation for the NMAT, I struggled in the usual subjects of a standardized exam. I had difficulty answering practical problems in subjects such as Chemistry and Physics or even identifying different patterns among figures. This struggle was evident during my first mock exams for the NMAT, in which I acquired very low scores. However, through Learnfast’s program, I developed critical thinking skills and keen observation, which helped me significantly during the exam. I was exposed to different shortcuts and techniques that made navigating the exam easier. Also, they promoted creative thinking by creating analogies which made analyzing problems more manageable. The materials, such as the practice tests, were of great help, especially in assessing my knowledge regarding the topics. Last, the very hardworking, passionate, and engaging instructors motivated and reminded me to strive even harder and study smarter. With all these factors, I was able to surprise myself by achieving a PR score higher than I expected. Thank you so much to Dr. Mangahas, Maam Bianca, and Sir Norman for the guidance; truly the best review center!

UST – 4TH YR BS MEDICAL BIOLOGY STUDENT

I was never confident of getting a high PR in NMAT due to my lack of study habits, and the fact that I did not know where to begin and what to study. Through Learnfast, I was given a systematic approach towards preparing specifically for the NMAT, with the sole goal of getting the highest PR possible. The facilitators in Learnfast are professionals, showing mastery in each of their own specialty topics. Not only was I able to grasp concepts I could not before, I also learned techniques and how to think logically to answer even the most unanswerable questions. Learnfast gave me the confidence and skills to be a good test taker. Thank you to Doc Junie, Ma’am Bianca, and all of the Learnfast staff. I’m sorry I couldn’t finish all the modules in time, if I did maybe I could’ve gotten a higher PR 😃

UST – 4TH YR BS MEDICAL BIOLOGY STUDENT

I only heard of Learnfast Review Center due to my block mates inviting me to join in as a group and get a discount.

I was apprehensive at first and is partly due to that expensive price for their packages.

But let me tell you now that it is all worth the price. I got in a bit late, and I did not get the full discounted package, but they still gave us some privileges such as Zoom recorded meetings and free sit in meetings when they know your putting in the effort.

When I started doing the problem sets I was discouraged at first due to how horrendous I was doing but through their teachings and testmanship skills I gradually improved.

There were some hiccups here and there, but I just followed their teachings wholeheartedly. I only reviewed religiously a week before my NMAT and I was expecting to flunk it but I still followed their teachings.

That is why I was truly surprised about the score that I have gotten, I really did not expect this but through their teachings, and God’s will I got an NMAT score that I can be proud of. Once again I cannot thank enough the people who make up Learnfast, Doc Mangahas, Ma’am Bianca, and Sir Norman for always giving their best into helping and honing us into future great doctors.

13. WYNSEL CARVEN R. TANDOC
UST – 4TH YR BS PHARMA STUDENT

I was never the kind of person who excels on standardized tests like the NMAT, so I was not very confident that I will be able to get my target PR. Thankfully, my friends and I came across Learnfast Review and Tutorial Hub. I started with very low scores on practice tests, but throughout my review, I noticed that my scores improved a lot. They provided us with sufficient review materials, just enough for us to grasp the important concepts and practice our testmanship skills, but not overwhelming us since we also have other academic responsibilities. This is complimented by the instructors’ concise and practical discussions, which emphasizes conceptual understanding, mental shortcuts, and honing our test-taking skills. Although they handle a lot of students, they still catered for our individual needs, and this is very evident since they periodically assess our performance on mock tests and offer one-on-one tutorial. Together with good time management and hard work, Learnfast really helped me during my preparation and the test itself. For this, lots of thanks, Learnfast!

14. JOSE CARLO MIGUEL CARREON         
UP-CEBU – 4TH YR BS BIOLOGY STUDENT

Learnfast has really helped me with my NMAT journey. They did not only teach me the ins and outs of NMAT, but they also taught me how to be a better test taker wherein I discovered new ways of thinking which were unknown to me before. It is also worth mentioning that I took the cheapest package. Despite this, I did not feel left out because the practice tests and learning materials were more than enough. I think this is what sets them apart from other review centers.

15. RAFAEL JOHN G. VELOSO
MSU – 4TH YR BS BIOLOGY (MAJOR IN ANIMAL BIOLOGY) STUDENT

I first heard about Learnfast from a family friend and a senior who went to the center. Knowing I had weak foundations in chemistry, physics and social science, and being muddled by the sedentary pandemic life, the idea of taking NMAT to me was very daunting at first. There was such a broad coverage and I had so much area to cover and I didn’t know where to start nor if the materials I had would come out in the exam. So I enrolled myself on May 2021. I enrolled early and true enough it was super worth it. There was so much learning material made available to me early on, from prerecorded lectures to practice sets and prerecorded explanations. Aside from the asynchronous resources, synchronous classes in August also kept me in check and pushed me to stop procrastinating. They even allowed me to attend sit-in classes in October and November. They also taught me testmanship techniques and so much advice which proved to be life-savers during the actual NMAT. Doc Mangahas was also very generous enough to extend my learning material access TWICE when I chose a later date to take the NMAT exam. They also guided me when I encountered issues with CEM registration.

I took the exam last November, more than half a year after enrolling in Learnfast and was lucky enough to get a 96 PR. Though I didn’t get the review center’s 99+ target like the others, I’m beyond grateful since this is already so much more than I expected to get. I have so much gratitude to Miss Bianca and Doc Mangahas who motivated me to keep pushing on despite scoring badly over and over again in the practice sets. Funny thing is, I scored highest in the subjects I feared the most. Even higher than my own major! I have Learnfast to thank for that.

16. AISHA S. DIDA-AGUN
XAVIER UNIVERSITY – ATENEO DE CAGAYAN – 4TH YEAR BS BIOLOGY STUDENT

Initially, I tried self-studying for the NMAT but it became challenging for me. My friend recommended Learnfast and had myself enrolled in the working/hectic learners edition which is basically the asynchronous edition. In my opinion, my experience with Learnfast was very beneficial for many reasons. They meet their students on a scheduled basis and actively check on our progress with their test packets. They also give us exclusive review materials and is open for a one-on-one Q&A chat in case there is something that I wanted to further clarify. Finally, I also think that their learning environment is what sets them apart since they highly encourage their students to participate (and not just sit-and-watch), introduce us with some logical approaches when taking the NMAT, and actively reminds us of the consequences of absenteeism. This made me more engaged in reviewing during my time with them. To Doc Junie, Maam Bianca and the rest of the Learnfast Team, thank you so much!

17. MARY ANN F. CABRERA
UP-M – 4TH YEAR BS PUBLIC HEALTH STUDENT

True to its name, LEARNFAST is really a shortcut to acing the NMAT. In my experience, even I was not able to finish all their learning materials, I was still able to get my dream 99 percentile. For some context, I enrolled in July and was scheduled to take my exam in November. I applied for the hectic schedule because I know my acads responsibilities will hinder my study. For the first two months, I was able to finish all modules and I learned a lot of testmanship techniques. However, when the semester started, I was not able to study at all. When November came, I was not confident anymore because I neglected my study for months. I was full of anxiety. But the teachers from LEARNFAST assured me that I will be able to do it… And I did. I’m very thankful because the testmanship skills I learned during the vacation was really useful. I am also very thankful for the kind teachers who gave me hope when I was about to give up.

Premium Quality Teaching Testimonies of Students in LEARNFAST REVIEW and TUTORIAL HUB – OCT 2021 NMAT

1. CLAIRE COLLANTES
UP – 4TH YR BS PUBLIC HEALTH STUDENT

Before the review sessions started, I already downloaded a lot of materials and books because I felt that I really needed to brush up on my Physics and SocSci since we don’t have these subjects in my undergrad course. However, I was so overwhelmed because I didn’t know where to start because I had already downloaded a lot. When the LEARNFAST review sessions started, I didn’t end up opening any of my downloaded materials anymore because the LEARNFAST pre-recorded lectures, synchronous lectures and review notes were already comprehensive enough. They also provided many practice tests, and these were very helpful in simulating the actual NMAT because of the time allotment and the structure of the questions. LEARNFAST not just teaches you WHAT to answer in the NMAT, but also HOW to answer it. In all honesty, I was already having a hard time balancing my school work and the review sessions towards the end of September, but the packets they gave really helped me orient and pace myself so I don’t panic. So thank you very very much to the entire teaching team of Learnfast, because I know that without them I wouldn’t have been able to reach my dream PR.

2. RAEANN MARIANO
UP – 4TH YR BS PUBLIC HEALTH STUDENT

For me, this is what makes LEARNFAST the best: LEARNFAST doesn’t just teach you how to answer test questions; they also teach you how to develop the right ATTITUDE and the right HABITS essential for success, which are lifelong learnings that will take you even farther along in life. If you want to get a good NMAT score, study hard. But, if you want to get a great score and an excellent mindset, study with LEARNFAST!

3. KIM PUNO
UP – 4TH YR BS PUBLIC HEALTH STUDENT

I would like to thank all of the teaching team in the review center for helping me achieve this score. Malaking tulong po talaga yung mga tips and tricks na tinuturo niyo po. To be honest po talaga, hindi po ako ganun magaling sa memorization. Kaya po kapag mga terms na po nahihirapan ako. Pero during the weeks of the review, may mga tinuro na easy to understand na “word association” na tinulungan ako madirect sa sagot. Also, kahit online setup, very interactive po yung sessions. Very responsive yung lecturers, so nakaclarify agad yung questions. Thank you LEARNFAST for being part of my journey! I will always remember all the things I’ve learned from you!

4. MARK BALIGOD
UP – 4TH YR BS PUBLIC HEALTH STUDENT

I am so glad I was able to find Learnfast through the recommendation of my friends and classmates. Actually, before coming here, I had tried at a different review center that was overpriced, but I barely learned anything because they only taught the concepts through whole-day lectures. So when I started in LEARNFAST, I was refreshed by their different style of teaching. I felt that under Learnfast my studying was more organized and I was able to focus on the topics that were most commonly found on the NMAT. On top of that, the testmanship techniques really saved me in taking the NMAT. I admit that, at first, I was skeptical of using testmanship to answer questions, but I saw that using these concepts really worked. During the review, I was able to answer questions under topics I hadn’t even started studying, and so, I applied these when I took the NMAT. And because of it I was able to get good scores in Physics and Chemistry; my two weakest subjects ever since high school. In all honesty, I did not expect my percentile rank to be this high, but I definitely believe that enrolling in Learnfast Review and Tutorial Hub played the biggest role in this achievement. Thank you LEARNFAST!

5. ROSS GAMMAD
UP – 4TH YR BS PUBLIC HEALTH STUDENT

Preparing for the NMAT was always anxiety-inducing for me. Prior to enrolling in LEARNFAST, I have already started reviewing on my own by reading comprehensive and detailed reading materials, as well as taking various practice tests that I have found on the internet. While my review was going decently, I felt that it was somehow inadequate in achieving my target PR for NMAT. This was due to the fact that while I was getting somehow above average scores in my practice tests, I was still having a lot of difficulty in answering, especially with the added factor of time-pressure. The technique that Learnfast teaches to its students is nothing short of innovative. The team provided a lot of ways and approaches to ace the NMAT through non-conventional but very effective means, by sort of shying away from the traditional reviewing style that I did before enrolling in LEARNFAST, but instead encouraging us students to think critically, creatively, and “out of the box.”
Additionally, LEARNFAST also teaches test takers on how to accurately answer the NMAT while maintaining speed in answering, which was my waterloo as mentioned before. With that said, through my time reviewing in LEARNFAST, I have seen a steady increase in my performance with each succeeding practice test by applying their tried and tested approach to test-taking. Surely enough, while the NMAT was still challenging, I can say with certainty that the teachings and training I received helped me a lot while answering the NMAT, and in the end, I got my target PR. With that, I want to sincerely thank Learnfast for contributing largely to my achieving my target PR. Kudos to your very efficient review staff and lecturers for unselfishly sharing their knowledge and expertise to their reviewees. More power to LEARNFAST REVIEW AND TUTORIAL HUB!

6. ADRIAN ALBA
UP – 4TH YR BS PUBLIC HEALTH STUDENT

LEARNFAST gave me a review experience that was different from my previous ones. I can’t stress enough the importance of doing practice tests covering the subtests of the NMAT. This is because listening to lectures can only get you so far since the actual pressure that can rattle you while taking the NMAT is definitely felt, as it was in my case. Only here did I get this much and frequent practice tests per subtopic session, not yet even including the mock tests that simulated the entire NMAT. They helped me get used to the time pressure and train my mind to quickly formulate logical answers and develop “muscle memory”.
Overall, the review gave me a sense of structure, which I would have difficulty with on my own. I recommend LEARNFAST as they teach the concepts for you to understand and not just memorize, as well as testmanship tips if your knowledge does not suffice. With these, I was able to achieve my target PR range. I am sure you all will too with LEARNFAST.

7. ANDRE BENUYO
UP – 4TH YR BS PUBLIC HEALTH STUDENT

As a college student, I have been used to solely basing my reviews for exams on lecture transcripts or what we call as “transes” and on the professors’ lecture slides. And this was the main reason why I really looked for a review center who will not only teach me the topics covered by the NMAT, but would also guide me on the most efficient and effective ways as I prepare for the exam. Fortunately, I came across LEARNFAST REVIEW AND TUTORIAL HUB, which was also recommended to me by some upperclassmen, and I believe enrolling in their comprehensive program has really helped me in studying both hard and smart, since every session of the review, albeit online, has been critically designed to provide all the concepts, tips, and practices which NMAT takers should know. Personally, what I really liked about LEARNFAST is its unconventional ways of teaching the students to think critically. For every question, LEARNFAST provides different methods of choosing the right option. By presenting traditional, conceptual, and heuristic ways of answering, LEARNFAST does not discriminate on the students’ learning types. With all these factors in mind, I believe that enrolling in LEARNFAST would really help anyone in achieving their desired PR in NMAT.

8. SOFIA TEODORO
UP – 4TH YR BS PHYSICAL THERAPY STUDENT

I just wanted to say thank you again for all the tips and the encouragement. As someone who is used to being an “average” student, never ko po na-expect na I would achieve this. I told myself to practice a little everyday and to never cram or stress, just to focus on the materials provided, to go slow and steady. Everything, from the questions having a certain “structure” to the common concepts asked about, turned out to be true, even though I really doubted my preparations right before taking the exam. Thank you again to LEARNFAST REVIEW AND TUTORIAL HUB with all my heart because this one event that has really weighed on my mind, truly has taught me lots of study skills and self-discipline that I know I will use in the future!!!!

9. ALEJANDRO LACSON
UP – 5TH YR BS PHYSICAL THERAPY STUDENT

I am really grateful to LEARNFAST for providing me with all that I need to be ready and perform well on the NMAT. This review center provides you with everything you need: complete coverage of all the necessary topics with their review book and lecture videos, practice quizzes that have similar questions to the actual exam, and helpful tips and tricks in saving time and determine the correct answers when unsure.
I am the type of student that likes to have all learning materials in one place and I really found their provided google drive to be quite helpful when navigating through topics and recalling past lessons and questions from practice exams.

Learnfast’s lecturers are also excellent and do their very best in making sure the students are competent in each of the subjects of the NMAT.

Overall, I believe paying for this review center is very much worth it for anyone who wishes to do well in the NMAT and, again, I am very thankful to the center and it’s staff for helping me get my desired grade!

10. WINONA GLORIA
UP – 4TH YR BS SPEECH PATHOLOGY STUDENT

In NMAT prep, practice tests will be your worst enemy, before they become your best friend. You might be humiliated by how low your scores are when you begin, but once you take that leap of courage to discover where you are truly lacking, you will be free to challenge yourself and actually improve. You cannot know where to go without knowing where to begin. This is where LEARNFAST fundamentally changed the way I study. Thus, my greatest takeaway is the choice of active recall over passive learning. The NMAT is not an exam that chooses the one who spent the most hours reading their textbook or watching lecture videos. It tests retention, problem solving, and time management. Through their never ending practice tests, I discovered the ropes for answering quickly, eliminating options, and most importantly, not being afraid of exams. These are hard-earned lessons that I definitely couldn’t have gotten on my own.

11. FRANCESCA REYES
UP – MANILA – 4TH YR BS BIOLOGY STUDENT

For starters, I’m not the type of person to take shortcuts when it comes to reviewing for exams.
In fact, I was kind of doubtful that I would be able to cover all the topics I needed to study, especially when I had to review for NMAT during my internship. With only 2 months of preparation for the exam, I needed to change the ways I tackled exams, starting with setting my priorities straight. With the help of LEARNFAST, I learned which topics to focus on, especially in my weaker subjects. I also appreciate all the test-taking tips they gave as it helped me spend less time in time-consuming problems, reduce the amount of items to solve, and narrow down my possible answers.
Thank you LEARNFAST for being part of my NMAT journey and thank you to the passionate staff for dedicating their time to help students reach their dream!

12. DOMINIQUE TROCIO
UP – VISAYAS – 4TH YR BS BIOLOGY STUDENT

I used to dread taking NMAT before. Even though I studied physics and chemistry in my earlier years as a biology student, I was not confident because I always had a difficult time understanding the concepts and applying them into problems. In LEARNFAST, not only did I finally understand the concepts in physics and chemistry but I also learned to determine the best answers through testmanship and quick critical thinking.
LEARNFAST reminded me to put my NMAT in top priority aside from my academics and to discipline myself in order to achieve my target percentile score. I am truly thankful to LEARNFAST for helping me prepare for NMAT and for aiding me to achieve my target NMAT score. Thank you, LEARNFAST team!

13. LORIE BERNARDO
UST – 4TH YR BS CHEMISTRY STUDENT

LEARNFAST gives a comprehensive review that teaches students not only to become strategic, knowledgeable and skilled in answering the NMAT but more importantly, to be prepared by building trust and confidence, boosting morale, motivating students to do their best. Though there’s a limited time preparing for NMAT, LEARNFAST has its own unique way and has a particular strategy that covers all the essential topics needed.
I really like how the NMAT review went from start to finish as it enables the students study as much as they want given a lot of learning videos and practice tests. I believe that with a great motivation to study and do good plus Learnfast would help aspiring med students achieve their goal. LEARNFAST was the best, having exceptional professors and the cool tips and tricks they taught which really help in understanding and remembering the topics. Thank you very much to the LEARNFAST team for being a bridge towards my dreams. I’m grateful that I’ve learned about your online review classes and I don’t think I’ll be getting the PR I had without their help. Though NMAT preparations and the test itself may sound tiring and difficult, thank you for the fun learning experience and a meaningful NMAT journey.

14. MIGUEL CACHAPERO
UST – BS OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY GRADUATE

I took the NMAT last year but I did not take it seriously since I didn’t study at all hoping that my previous learnings will help me pass the cut-off percentage of my med school of choice which is 50%. I really regret not preparing for this exam, because I was plainly guessing all the questions there! Eventually I got lower score than the cut-off percentage. So I tried to search for online review centers then poof! I found Learnfast, and the rest was history! I just found out awhile ago that I managed to pass now the cut-off percentage of my chosen school thanks to all of you po!! Much appreciated learnings from LEARNFAST!
Worth it po lahat.

15. PATRICIA JUNGCO
UST – 4TH YR BS PHARMACY STUDENT

I would like to thank you po for all the help you have given me to prepare for the NMAT.
Before enrolling in LEARNFAST, I did not know where to begin my review. Thankfully, LEARNFAST was there to help me out. When the results came out, I was happy because it was more than I expected. The lectures and practice sets were extremely helpful in refreshing concepts I learned years ago. The review was comprehensive. Aside from emphasizing important concepts, you also taught us how to answer questions strategically through testmanship. The refreshment course was also helpful. Once again, thank you po!

16. THERESE KAW
UST – 4TH YR BS PHARMACY STUDENT

LEARNFAST is the best choice for NMAT takers. They focus only on the topics that you need to understand to ace the NMAT. Personally, preparing for the NMAT became EASIER with LEARNFAST guiding and teaching me. They will hone your test-taking skills and give great advice that will genuinely be useful when taking the exam. Overall, studying smart, putting in the effort, and praying to God while under LEARNFAST will surely help you pass with flying colors!

17. HANNAH MOLINA
UST – 4TH YR BS PSYCHOLOGY STUDENT

Study smart, not only study hard. This is what LEARNFAST advocates throughout my time with them, and I believe that this is the mentality that really drew out the best in me. They helped me in honing my critical thinking skills and analytical skills, and they taught me how to be practical not only in solving the problems in the mock tests, but also on how to approach the NMAT. I’m the person who tends to study all the concepts but end up not being able to apply the knowledge on the actual test. But with LEARNFAST, they teach you how to apply everything that you have learned in NMAT. They taught me to understand the concepts rather than memorize a lot of formulas, and their techniques on how to answer Perceptual Acuity and Inductive Reasoning really blew my mind! In short, they emphasize absorbing concepts that will last in your long-term memory. Time may seem to be our enemy, but LEARNFAST encourages you to manage your time well! They advocate spaced learning instead of mass learning, and they encourage us to simulate the testing environment (that is, if you follow the time limit religiously). Thanks to their help, I found the NMAT relatively easier than the mock tests I answered, and I honestly felt confident as I was taking the test. I was even shocked that my highest scores are from the subjects that I found difficult (Quantitative, Physics, Chemistry). Kudos to LEARNFAST team of passionate professionals, they will certainly help you!

18. JOSE PACHECO
UST – 4TH YR BS NURSING STUDENT

The NMAT always seemed like a very intimidating test for me and from the start I didn’t know how I was going to prepare and study for it. For that, LEARNFAST was able greatly help me in my preparation for the NMAT. They not only review the concepts to you but also equip you with the skills you need in effective test taking. There I was able to learn many testmanship skills and techniques which helped me navigate through the exam even when there are questions that I am unsure of. What I also like about the program is that they assess you regularly through practice tests which helps you gauge which parts give you difficulty and where you need to focus more on. With that, I would like to thank Dr. Mangahas, Ma’am Bianca, Sir Norman, and the other professors and staff at LEARNFAST for guiding me on my NMAT journey.

19. CORKY ZETA
UST – 4TH YR BS MEDICAL BIOLOGY STUDENT

One of the most anticipated examinations before entering med school is NMAT. As I was searching for a review center, I’ve come across LEARNFAST thanks to my friends. When the review began, I already had drastically low scores in the mini mock exams and thought I would not achieve the cutoff percentile rank for the schools I intend to apply to.
This motivated me to attend the lectures diligently, watch the numerous recorded sessions, and practice both during review and free time. I also inquired LEARNFAST in case some topics confused me. I eventually saw myself improving by gaining higher scores and internalizing the topics, not just memorizing them. I took the exam during one of the most hectic semesters, but I still tried my best to find time to answer the different problem sets provided to us. In the end, I was able to attain an NMAT percentile rank that exceeded the required cutoff score. I know that it can make us feel anxious thinking that we cannot gain a high NMAT percentile rank, but you have to believe in yourself. The NMAT is easier than you think it is; you only need to invest time and effort. Sending my best wishes to all the upcoming NOV 2021 NMAT takers!
Good luck and God bless!

20. ENRIQUE ALTONAGA III
UST – 4TH YR BS MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY STUDENT

Other than streamlining what needs to be studied and what concepts should be remembered, LEARNFAST teaches you techniques that work more on a subconscious level where in cases where you are definitely not sure of an answer, you can quickly rationalize your ideas and select the most probable answer. To me this summarizes NMAT where the coverage is just too wide and random and it would be ridiculous to simply stock up on as much knowledge as possible. Being logical and creative in rationalizing possible answers is the highlight of this review center.

21. HANNAH S. GOLPEO
UST – 4TH YR BS MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY STUDENT

Enrolling to LEARNFAST REVIEW AND TUTORIAL HUB has been a decision that I’m very thankful that I made. LEARNFAST did not only train me to study hard, but also to study smart. Although that is a common motto, I found it to be very effective for me especially with the reinforcement of LEARNFAST. They provided all the materials needed for the review including the modules and practice tests which has really helped me a lot during the period of my review. On top of that, what’s unique with LEARNFAST is that they do not only teach you the modules that you need for the exam, they will also train you to use testmanship skills when answering challenging items. Although I enrolled in the asynchronous package, I never felt like I was left alone to study on my own because LEARNFAST provided me with a schedule which I religiously followed whenever I had spare time. They also regularly post motivations and study questions on FB groups which I found to be helpful because I can learn bits of concepts even when I’m just scrolling on FB. They were also one chat away whenever I had difficulties in understanding some modules. At first, I was really skeptical following the schedule and modules given by LEARNFAST because I always thought, “Is this going to be enough? What if I miss out reviewing some things that I should know?” But I trusted Doc Mangahas when he said that we didn’t have to bombard ourselves with other modules as long as we follow the modules that they have given. To my surprise, it was true! I got a high NMAT percentile because I followed all the tips and reviewed all the lessons that the instructors have given and I would like to thank LEARNFAST REVIEW AND TUTORIAL HUB for that since I know that I wouldn’t have achieved my score without their help.

22. MATTHEW SO
ADMU – 4TH YR BS PSYCHOLOGY STUDENT

LEARNFAST is your premiere review center for taking the NMAT. More than teaching you the lessons that could potentially come out during the NMAT, they guide you as you hone your skills for test taking. LEARNFAST taught me how to be smart, but also how to act smart in the face of difficult questions. They guide you all throughout the process and extend a helping hand if you ask for it. Regardless of your undergraduate course, LEARNFAST will help you reinforce your strengths, make up for your weaknesses, and encourages you to keep pushing yourself to strive for more. Taking the NMAT can be one of the most stressful and nerve-racking experiences, but with LEARNFAST as your review center you will gain the confidence to continually challenge yourself to be a better test taker and among the top scorers as a result.

23. CATHERINE LIWANAG
ADMU – 4th Year BS HEALTH SCIENCE STUDENT

The months leading up to my NMAT were stressful and nerve-wracking. LEARNFAST was however able to help me through it all. I was able to develop a better schedule and routine that helped me focus on my weak areas and enhance my strengths. Having both their support in synchronous and asynchronous sessions also made me more independent and confident in studying and answering the sample tests. Their materials, lessons, tips, and advice were really able to capture the nature of NMAT and I felt really prepared and well-equipped to take it after months of preparation guided by LEARNFAST. I highly recommend LEARNFAST, I never thought I reached the score I did but thanks to LEARNFAST, I was able to reach my target PR and more. Many, many thanks to LEARNFAST, I hope you get to help more students reach their dreams, one test at a time!

Self Review or self learning is hard. When you are teaching or studying by yourself, there is no competition, and no deadline. But staying motivated to complete things on your own initiative is hard, because there is no consequence if you don’t get things done and could be wasted time if you don’t know how to study smart and relearn subjects that are of long time ago in the past. If you want to seek a review center that is savvy in test taking skills and techniques, then go to LEARNFAST REVIEW AND TUTORIAL HUB. There you will have the encouragement and gain or regain confidence to take the nmat with flying colors and also if in case you may want to retake and boost your score. Especially in what seems it is hard at first subjects like Quantitative, Physics, Chemistry and you could say Mirror images in the perceptual acuity type, There is no youtube cram video or any blog/vlog that can tell or teach you how to answer questions as hard as those mentioned in a time consuming exam unlike their method of teaching, not even just memorization alone can help. Learnfast gives comprehensive study notes, all equipped with videos. Learnfast emphasizes the importance of conceptual       understanding & test taking strategies. You as the reviewee will be surprised that the results does show that their way works even if your background is that of just an average student, and finally get the satisfied score that you need to get in to that target school of yours. I thank you Learnfast for giving me the discipline and the smarts on how it is done. This is the way, guys! Seek them out. It will be worth it.

APRIL-MAY 2021 ONLINE NMAT TESTIMONIES

UST – INCOMING 4R – MEDTECH (99+)
I first heard of Learnfast from my friends and peers when I was looking for a review center that could fit in well with my hectic student schedule. I was not sure if I could join weekly synchronous sessions religiously, so I was searching for a review center that would help me study at my own pace. Learnfast was highly recommended, and as luck would have it, they have an asynchronous learning package which I ultimately decided to take.

The asynchronous package was packed with mock tests, video lectures, and explanations for the modules that I thoroughly enjoyed reviewing. The modules were a real challenge and watching the video lectures was enjoyable as complex concepts were easily explained. Also, Learnfast taught me important techniques, tips, and shortcuts that are not available anywhere else which allowed me to answer the NMAT with confidence and precision.

Lastly, having taken the asynchronous package did not mean that I was left alone trying to understand lessons I found extra difficult- Through messenger, Doc Mangahas and Miss Bianca were always available and happy to explain concepts I had trouble understanding. They even gave me Important tips when studying. I never once felt that I was left to my own devices in Learnfast.

For anyone who aims to have a high NMAT percentile rank, LEARNFAST is truly the best option out there.

UP MANILA – BS PHARMACY GRADUATE (99)
For me, Learnfast’s teaching approach is effective in that the most important and high-yield concepts are simplified and emphasized throughout the discussions.

Various test-taking strategies and time management tips were also given, which were very helpful in the actual exam. The instructors in Learnfast were also very patient, supportive, and responsive to students’ queries; they were easily reached via Messenger.

Thank you very much po to Learnfast for your invaluable help throughout my NMAT journey.

Even before I started reviewing with Learnfast, I began studying for the NMAT months ahead without any real guidance. I even attended another review center in order to get a head start as I knew that the batch taking the mid-year exams was going to be tough competition. Because of this, I kept my expectations realistic aiming for at most a 90-95. But, I was really unhappy with how the review classes went because of how inefficient their system of teaching was. Feeling unsatisfied, I searched for another review center in order to bolster my knowledge and testmanship skills even further. Through my friends who were also about to take the NMAT, I then learned of Learnfast.
I took on their Hectic Learner’s Edition package, as my classes and academics prevented me from being able to attend the live sessions. This flexibility allowed me to learn at my own pace and maximize
everything that Learnfast has to offer. My expectations were blown away with Learnfast’s system as well as with how much their tips translated over to the actual test day. Compared to my previous review center, more mock tests as well as sets were given to really help the student grasp the concepts in each category. Dozens of hours worth of asynchronous material and videos helped me prepare mentally for all
possible questions. Learnfast focuses on testmanship skills as opposed to memorizing and knowing every detail. The “Heuristic Approach” is the foundation of Learnfast’s system and is highly recommended to master in order to achieve a high percentile score.

I was very confident and well-prepared for the test day because of the tools Learnfast armed me with and well enough, I surpassed even my own expectations and achieve a very high percentile rank. Learnfast can truly help bring you one step closer to you medical school dreams.

UP MANILA – BS NURSING GRADUATE (99)
It was always my dream to take NMAT since I was in high school. However, that dream became quite blurry after experiencing hardships during college that made my self-esteem hit rock bottom. It was already a year after graduation that I was able to gather the guts and say, “Why not?” and tried to prepare for the NMAT this 2021. Multiple demanding jobs plus preparing for an exam that you dream of ever since you were a kid was not an easy combination. It feels like juggling multiple knives at the same time where in one wrong move, everything can mess up big time. It was then when me and my best friend heard of the package of Learnfast and decided to enroll. For NMAT takers with jobs like us,
Learnfast’s package and schedule is like a gift from heaven. The struggle between having an extra hour of rest and sleep in bed versus attending the high yield classes during Saturday and Sunday, answering their endless mock tests and modules, reviewing all their lectures, and practicing my most favorite “Heuristic Approach” – all of these were challenging, but it would really help you think critically and manage your time, which is very important during the actual NMAT test. Everything was worth it and paid off. I never really expected to get a percentile rank like this, but after countless nights of hard work and perseverance together with Learnfast, I have reached something that is way beyond my expectations. It was always a running joke to me and my family that my NMAT result would be my ultimatum if I would finally pursue that long lost dream. With this result, I believe that burning passion became alive once again. Learnfast became a big part of it.

My friends invited me to join their review class under Learnfast. I decided to join them despite not planning to take the NMAT at the time.

The review sessions helped refresh my knowledge on subjects I haven’t had in a long while. There are numerous resources included in the affordable packages. The available mock tests allowed me to simulate the actual testing environment and the possible time pressure I might encounter. Their video lectures are very comprehensive with topics explained in detail to ensure everyone understood. It was definitely an advantage that lectures were uploaded so students will be able to rewatch later. This flexibility also allows for those who are busy with work or studies to catch up. Other things like tips on how to answer lengthy questions that would otherwise consume valuable time, in addition to and mnemonics which helped ease the memorization of terms and formulas that are important to keep in mind during the examination, are also a great plus.

The best thing about Learnfast though, is that they care whether their students fully comprehend the concepts and ideas they impart. I’m thankful for the help Learnfast has given my friends and I in taking the first steps to becoming doctors.

UP MANILA – 5 BS PHARMA (98)
I have learned of Learnfast from friends who heard great things about the institution. As I am a graduating student, I could only attend NMAT review classes on weekends, and sessions with Learnfast allowed me to prepare for the exam without clashing with my academics.

I joined the intensive review sessions during November – December 2020 in the hopes of taking the NMAT in March 2021. However, the exam was moved to April – May 2021. This has proved to be a difficult time for me due to academic requirements and pending research. I was afraid that all of the things I learned last year would go down the drain because of the long gap between my review session with Learnfast and the NMAT. All hope was not lost because Learnfast offered sit-in sessions for those who joined the November – December sessions. I am very grateful for the chance to join those sessions and refresh the concepts and test-taking skills I have learned throughout my review.

The intensive review package offers plenty of modules and videos dedicated to assisting students in understanding the concepts and test-taking skills required to answer the exam questions. With guidance from Dr. Junie and Ma’am Bianca, Learnfast students are sure to get their desired percentile ranks and get into their dream medical school.

I first heard of Learnfast from my sister who also went to the same review center. I was told that Learnfast is one of the best review centers for NMAT, so I went along and applied there. After taking review lessons from them, it wasn’t an overstatement to say that they are one of the best because the review sessions were packed with a lot of sample problems, which include easy to understand explanations, well-organized lessons that give a sufficient overview of the topic, and fun tips and tricks that can be done in case we encounter an extremely difficult question. All in all, I had a very fun experience, but what really made an impact to me was the fact that even after our scheduled sessions, Learnfast still gave us an avenue for practice before our actual NMAT exam. We had this fb group where they posted questions daily, and through this I was able to practice and review even though school was hectic and time wasn’t on my side. Overall, I don’t think I could’ve gotten my current score without their help.

As someone working in a demanding profession, it was hard for me to look for a review program I could take while working full-time. Luckily, Learnfast offered a program that fit my schedule.

I had a 4-month gap between my review classes with Learnfast and my actual NMAT schedule. Between those months, I got busy and was not able to prioritize reviewing on my own. I was worried I had already forgotten all that was taught during the classes I took; but I just kept on revisiting the materials and watching the videos from Learnfast.

I’m also glad that Ms. Bianca and Doc Junie still accommodated my questions even after my program has ended and offered help in refreshing the lessons.

The most valuable takeaway from my review classes with Learnfast was the testmanship strategies because it’s true when they say it’s useless to memorize everything and master every concept as you only have a few seconds to answer each question. What’s more important is learning how to answer each type of question strategically and Learnfast trained me to do just that.

It was way back on October 2020 when my friends and I decided to review for the NMAT. After scouting several review centers, it was Learnfast’s package inclusions that really got us all hooked, so we went ahead and enrolled.

Juggling review classes and 6-day work weeks (most of the time even working overtime) was difficult. On Saturdays, I would open my live lectures while simultaneously attending to patients, which is why I highly recommend Learnfast’s asynchronous strategies as well because it helped me refresh concepts during my free time. Fast forward to around 5 months later, work was at its peak season. I had no time left to review all the lectures I had from way back as I would go home at 11pm and go to work at 8am the next day (still, with Saturdays). I bet all my cards on the stock knowledge that was reinforced when I took the review. I was not expecting to get a good PR.

I was shaking with happiness and excitement when I saw my NMAT result. I was able to prove to myself that despite having a busy schedule, given the right materials and Learnfast’s guidance, this is all possible.

ADMU – INCOMING 4TH YEAR – BS PSYCH (97)
I originally planned to take the Oct 2021 NMAT. I was very anxious about the NMAT. But I took the May 2021 NMAT because I felt I was ready and prepared. I was never really the best student in college because I had poor study habits. However, one day my friend told me to enroll in Learnfast’s Working/Hectic Learners Edition (Block 5) and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made. Learnfast’s asynchronous modules are well designed and allow me to work at my own pace which was very beneficial for me as I usually like studying at weird hours and also had lots of other requirements throughout the day. What I really liked is that the modules were straightforward and really focus on how you can ace the test. This is important for me as I value studying smart and efficiently. Learnfast also gives many tips and tricks that were super helpful during the real test. I was able to do well in subjects I had almost 0 background in because of these tricks. The mock tests given were also extremely helpful because it allowed to become very confident when the test day came. Overall, I strongly recommend Learnfast as it gives you all the tools for you to achieve a high NMAT score.

UST— BS PSYCHOLOGY GRADUATE (93)
As someone who is not good at math and has minimal foundation in Physics and Chemistry, I really had a difficult time studying for these 3 subtests. It was difficult for me to grasp the concepts, especially during the first few meetings of our review but Doc Junie and Ms. Bianca were able to explain the concepts well that would help their students to easily understand it. They also made sure that all of their students are able to fully grasp the topic and are able to keep up, they are very
accommodating as well when it comes to our questions regarding a
confusing topic. They will also provide you with numerous materials (modules, videos, mock exams) that are comprehensive and will surely help you practice for the exam. Also, what I appreciate most about Learnfast is that they don’t only teach you the traditional method of answering, but their review focuses on testmanship strategies which really helped me when I took the NMAT. By continuously practicing these techniques, I never experienced time constraint when I took the NMAT. Without Learnfast, I wouldn’t have attained this kind of PR score. I actually never thought that I would get a PR score in NMAT that is a line of 9 but with the help of Learnfast it was made possible. Also, I really appreciate the team behind Learnfast because even though my review schedule in Learnfast was last June-July 2020 pa, they didn’t stop keeping in touch with me and still gave me tips and materials that would help me in preparing for the NMAT. They stayed with me until I was able to take the NMAT last May 2021. That’s why I really recommend enrolling in Learnfast Review. They really care for their students and with their utmost ability, they will set you up for success.

DLSU-DASMA – INCOMING 4 – MEDBIO (92)
I took my NMAT during my final year in college. Juggling it with academics was extremely stressful which is why I decided to enroll in a review center. Fortunately, Learnfast offers reviews for students with a hectic schedule which fits me perfectly. I had the opportunity to learn at my own pace and even sit in with other classes. Ms. Bianca, Sir Norman, and especially Doc Junie were always there to guide me. Learnfast taught me how trust works. If it is content that you are looking for, they offer a wide variety of learning materials taught by competitive teachers. But what I value most is their technique, a technique only Learnfast can give you, which I can say is accountable for the majority of my points in NMAT. My main takeaway is, learn to trust. Thank you so much for Learnfast!

MARCH 10, 2019 NMAT TESTIMONIES

TESTIMONY OF A UP LOS BANOS – BS CHEMICAL ENGR STUDENT (NMAT % RANK: 99+) – “Coming from a non-medical related background, I knew that there are items in the exam that I had no knowledge of. I needed help to equip myself better and be even more competent for the NMAT. After some research, I decided to trust Learnfast. They taught me new concepts and refined my testmanship skills, which gave me the confidence and right attitude for the exam. Overall, I can say that my experience with Learnfast is very much worth it. “

TESTIMONY OF A STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK – BS BIOCHEMISTRY (FIL-AM) STUDENT (NMAT % RANK: 99+) – “Before enrolling in Learnfast, I was very nervous about the NMAT because I had not been in school for a long time and would have to review a lot of concepts that were probably fresh in other students’ minds. However due to Dr. Mangahas and his Learnfast team, I was able to gain the confidence and believe in myself that I could do well. I am very happy with how I did and my result shows that their unique way of teaching both the concepts and testmanship skills necessary to manage a test like the NMAT really works!”

TESTIMONY OF A UE – BS BIOLOGY STUDENT (OCT 2017 NMAT % RANK: 99) – Two years ago, when I enrolled in Learnfast Review Center, I had the objective to achieve an NMAT score that I would be satisfied with (85-95). But, when the 2017 October NMAT came, I was afraid of taking it. I did not feel so confident in myself because I felt like I could not remember everything. It took me two years to finally grapple with my fear of the NMAT. I look back on it now and I think that my decision was very foolish. I should have believed in myself, because I realized that everything that I learned from Learnfast two years ago really did stick with me. My score is proof of this! That is why I am ever so grateful for the unique teachings and consistent preparation given to me by Dr. Mangahas and his team. With serious effort and  excellent guidance, a high score is only within arm’s reach!

TESTIMONY OF A UST – BS BIOLOGY STUDENT(NMAT % RANK: 99) – “The idea of taking a standardized test wherein they rank you and thousands of other NMAT takers based on your score is a very scary idea. However, thanks to Learnfast Review and Tutorial Hub, I became much, much more confident in myself. They somehow managed to teach all the sciences and enhanced my reasoning skills in a short amount of time. This also allowed me to become more disciplined in my academic life in college. I knew that the NMAT definitely requires knowledge of the sciences and proper reasoning skills. Overall, I would suggest Learnfast to everyone who plans on taking the NMAT. It definitely works!”

TESTIMONY OF A TRINITY UNIVERSITY OF ASIA – BS NURSING (RN) (NMAT % RANK: 98) “I am 33 years old, an alumnus of Trinity University of Asia, BSN 2006. I was out of school for 13 years and my strong desire to be a great doctor compelled me to take the NMAT. I was very nervous, especially when the date of the NMAT exam was pushed earlier than I had anticipated. I already filed my leave from work, and could not change it any longer. Fortunately, I chose the right review center (Learnfast Review and Tutorial Hub), which offers daily review for working reviewees. Dr. Mangahas, Ms. Bianca, Sir Fred, and all the Learnfast staff were helpful in guiding us throughout the review, which boosted my confidence in taking the exam. They helped me  understand my areas of weaknesses and helped me to improve on those areas (they even granted my request to conduct more practice exams in those areas of weaknesses). Honestly, I didn’t believe their prediction on how many topnotchers we would have in our class. But upon getting the results, I was pleasantly surprised and very happy with the outcome.

Learnfast’s unique way of teaching, including the testmanship skills you learn during the review really works. As long as you attend the review classes, listen, and believe in them; you are guaranteed to have high NMAT score. I am proud to be a Learnfast NMAT student!”

TESTIMONY OF A PLM – BS NURSING STUDENT (NMAT % RANK: 97) – “I took the NMAT 3 times without attending any review classes, all those times my scores were far from my target. For my 4th try, I was really losing hope of achieving my target score when I thought of enrolling at Learnfast. Dr. Mangahas and the other lecturers’ innovative teaching of concepts and out of the box test taking skills gave me an edge and a new insight on how to tackle the NMAT and with that, yielded a score I’ve only dreamt before, but now a reality! All of the concepts and skills you will learn from Learnfast are really tested and proven to work!”

Our website displays a number of testimonies from LEARNFAST students. LEARNFAST is consistent in producing hundreds of topnotches in every NMAT batch.
