LearnHub.com Launches World's Largest Free SAT and GMAT Question Banks

Toronto based Learnhub.com, who we have profiled before, is making a big announcement today.

LearnHub, who are doing deals all over the place these days, is quickly becoming a huge destination site for international students. Being able to practice SAT and GMAT questions online will be a fantastic addition for their audience.

Along with the availability of the new SAT & GMAT question banks, today’s announcement includes a significant update to LearnHub’s community platform. Over 1,500 members use this innovative social interface to practice for exams, which includes tools to allow members to time themselves, debate solutions and strategy with each other, and to track their improvement over time. The question banks grow daily as members and staff add new questions. As one of the only alternatives to expensive books and courses, LearnHub’s free SAT and GMAT communities are catching on quickly, averaging 50 new members every day since their launch.

Learnhub gives wannabe international students an online social network and learning site that North American schools then tap in to via recruiters in order to attract top-tier talent. The model delivers new value to all of their audiences, and while I am not in any of their target markets, I think the value of the site huge.

I even started startups.learnhub.com a while ago, and will start populating it more soon. Jump in and help out!

LearnHub, who took a large financing round from India-based EduComp Solutions, was recently in our Top 10 Startups to Watch list for Canada.

  1. This is a very smart move on the part of the team at LearnHub. Dinosaurs like Kaplan and Princeton Review have been making easy money for decades peddling prep courses for admissions tests. It’s great to see someone taking the intitiative to finally bring the equivalent to the web, where it can be much more accessible. At worst this will be a huge driver of traffic and signups for LearnHub. At best this could be a small yet significant step towards the further democratization of higher education.
