After taking two other GMAT prep courses two less than stellar official GMAT scores, I decided to take the Veritas Prep live course after reading numerous positive reviews.

My instructor was Neil Moakley and he was did an incredible job at both teaching how to best approach the wide array of both quantitative and verbal questions that appear on the test, as well as to providing insight into the fundamental logic that the GMAT is designed to test. Additionally, the course was extremely well organized and required a large amount of commitment outside of class to reviewing and understanding the material--this forced me to devote a significant amount of time to studying, but was definitely effective in preparing me for the exam. I highly recommend this course!

I took the Veritas GMAT prep course with Neil in Philadelphia, PA. I like the way Veritas sets up the course; there are 12 books and 12 classes. Each book contains a skillbuilder, a lesson and homework problems. I think it is really important to review some of the core concepts and Veritas does a great job with that. I haven't actually taken the test yet, because I need some more time to do as many homework problems as possible. I would definitely suggest this course but you have to be disciplined and work a lot on your own. I am glad I took the course.

The length of the course was just enough amount of time to get a refresher (especially on math subjects) and prepare for the exam. I found it extremely helpful in preparing for the Quant portion of the exam. Having a different Quant subjects reviewed once a week along with practice homework was definitely key.

It was great also to have a relatively small class, which enhanced the dynamics of the classroom, and where Neil was able to provide his undivided attention; it also allowed students to get to know each other and gather together for practice homework assignments. I certainly feel that I wouldn't have been able to acheive my current score and get accepted into my MBA program of choice, without the help of Neil Moakley and Veritas Prep.

Neil did a great job of reviewing all the course material. I have not looked at a lot of the topics covered in the GMAT since high school and needed a quick review. Neil was effective in his teaching methods and was very helpful in anyway he could be. I would recommend this course to anyone who is taking the GMAT. The class is located in a UPENN classroom. The supporting course material is also helpful. I often reviewed the online pre recorded classes to go through class material again. I increased my score quite a bit through this class. It goes at a good pace, which is very helpful.

Great Prep Class

This review is for:  Veritas Prep Full Course | Location:  Philadelphia, USA | Taught by:  Neil Moakley
I only had about a month and a half to prepare for the GMAT, so I was looking for a course to give structure to my preparation. The Veritas Prep course was exactly what I was looking for. I took one of the GMAC practice tests from their website as a diagnostic at the beginning of my course, and then scored 70 points higher on the actual GMAT.

Neil is a great teacher, always making sure every student in the class understands why an answer is right or wrong. The online materials are great for review of previous classes in case you need it. For each lesson, there are about 100 homework problems, which I found to be more than enough practice. The only issue is that there are typos in some of the homework problems in the books, but you can do them all online where there are no typos, or you can print out the correct pages from the internet. Either way, there are ways around the issue until they fix the typos in the next edition of books.

Overall, I would recommend this course to anyone looking to improve his or her score on the GMAT.

I found Veritas to be a fully comprehensive and thorough GMAT Prep course. My instructor was excellent and the information provided in the books and in the answer section was very helpful. In addition, I found the online resources to be great and the access to additional tests, online classes, and instructors (either through a call in line or on line 'office hours') unparalleled. The diagnostic quizes and practice tests were a huge help, and the additional instructor support amazing. I would recommend this to anyone and am confident that my score would not have been as high without Veritas. All an all, a beneficial experience and well worth the price.

Great course if you attend all classes and do the homework. The online tools are really helpful and they have office hours where you can ask questions. They have multiple online practice test as well as online quizzes which provide a great diagnostic of your strengths and weakness.

The classes can be painfully long, especially after a full day of work but the instructor does a good job of keeping you engaged. I was very fearful on the sentence correction side of the exam, but the books are very brilliant in explaining step by step how to deconstruct even the most annoying verb tense agreement error found in a equivalent parallel error with multiple modifiers of course!

The different tools that Vertias Prep provide seem to be helpful but I guess we will see after the test!
