I took the GMAT on my own in January. My score was a 610. Veritas helped me improve 100 points. My instructor was Ravi Sreerama and he was amazing. It's difficult to keep someone captivated for three hours online, but he did. Ravi really emphasized getting rid of silly mistakes, thinking critically, and engaging his students one on one through chat. Ravi is extremely knowledgeable and teaches the Veritas Material with ease. He knows what he's talking about and what to emphasize.
I cannot attest to whether Veritas is better than Manhattan, but Veritas worked for me. I thought they did a good job emphasizing how to approach the test, especially basics that make the quantitative section easier. I wound up using a lot of the basic tricks that get you out of a question in a few seconds during the actual exam. The verbal section was also phenomenal as I was able to refresh my verbal skills and see the bigger picture and what clues to look out for in sentence correction.
I highly recommend Veritas and I highly recommend taking the course with Ravi.
