Aaron Pond and the Veritas Prep full course were a great fit for me. The quantitative section was a struggle for me so I was really hoping to get those skills up to speed. Aaron's approach to the course is to change the way you think, rather than just teach tricks and shortcuts. This approach worked well for me, as I needed to think differently about the GMAT in order to get past some of my bad habits. The lessons were great and was time very well spent.

Aaron's expertise and experience with the GMAT alone is worth the cost of this course, but the extra online Veritas Prep resources are very helpful. Using the online tools I was able to identify my weakest areas. Aaron provided specific examples within the coursework that would help me improve those areas. The combination of the two made the difference for me.

I increased my score by 100, enough to break through the 700+ barrier and get me into a top MBA program. It's a little pricey, but it was worth it. My GMAT score got me into my MBA program, and Veritas Prep was a major part of getting that score. I highly recommend the course.

My teacher, Mr. Pond was amazing. He did a great job articulating what to expect on the exam. Veritas armed him with great information to present as well. The course was laid out very efficiently and was delivered in a way that was understandable and not to overwhelming for only a months time to take it all in.

Veritas has also done a great job at making sure that I am taken care of. I am thinking about retaking the test so that I get the score that I would like and they give me a year to take the course again and during that year I still have access to all of the materials they provide. Great service as a company!

Great course, not much better than my self-study score.

The course and my instructor were excellent. Aaron prepares tirelessly and really wants to do all he can to help. I was taking the test for the second time (the first time I did self study with 2-3 books and a couple of practice test). After the full course, 2 months of daily study, and nearly 10 practice tests, I ended up getting the same overall score I previously received (though the score was more balanced). Veritas refunded me for the course with no questions - they have a guarantee.

I would still recommend this course, my instructor and the materials were awesome. Not sure how to take my outcome - maybe I studied more effectively the first time than I thought.

Veritas prep went to some great lengths to put together a quality program. Their quality of instruction is top notch. My teacher Aaron went out of his way and put in extra time and effort to make sure all my questions were answered. He took time in each class to make sure each student understood the concepts clearly and still moved at an appropriate pace. I really could feel like he cared about each student, not just his contract with Veritas.

The program offers many options to fit each learning style. The online options were great and helped me to study when i missed class or wanted to brush up on my skills before the test. i would highly recommend the Veritas to any of my friends.

Worth Twice the Price

I loved the whole Veritas program. I had the most knowledgable and helpful teacher imaginable. He knew the strategies so well we could ask him anything and get a clear and consise answer that we could directly apply to the test. I would recommend this class to anyone who is serious about getting into a top ten business school. Within the first few weeks of classes I had improved my score by 130 points.
