That's like asking if a pound of apples is worth $1.39.

A product only has value as the value CAN be utilized and appreciated by the consumer. I have gone through ~half of the Veritas books and can say with certainty they are well written and offer a good number of Veritas developed questions that are unique.

Read the book review thread:
best-gmat-books-118706.html

It's possible the Veritas set is best for you. It's also possible it is not. Pick the materials that best address YOUR needs.

I Bought all veritas books for the verbal section . I wouldn't recommend them though , they simply lack the amount of depth that MGMAT books give you .( again this is just for the verbal section , I'm not sure how their quant book are )

If you buy them, make sure you get them from veritasprep.com as that gives you access to their CAT tests (I believe even one book is sufficient to get access though)

bb: yes, I plan to.

Can anybody else explain Veritas' 15 CAT policy? They don't provide much info. Do I need to buy a classroom session or something?

I understand but I am seeking quantifiable testimonials. Meaning, people who can say with reasonable certainty, that Veritas prep books improved their score by at least 100 points. I wouldn't pay $300 to improve by 10 points.

I think Veritas Prep Material is really over priced. I've both Veritas and MGMAT guides, and I prefer MGMAT.

If you buy any of the veritas prep books through their website you get access to 5 practice tests . You'll get access to all 15 tests only if you do a veritas prep course .
