Marc is awesome. I worked very closely with Marc Fienberg doing the MGMAT private tutoring and it was a huge help to my score (630 to 700+). If it weren't for Marc, I would not have gotten into my dream MBA program.

Background: I took the typical MGMAT nine-week course, did all of the homework and materials, reviewed everything for a three months after the course ended, but still could not get my score consistently above a 630, primarily due to struggling with Quant. It was very frustrating because I was not seeing an improvement in my scores after a lot of work much work so I turned to private tutoring.

Right away, I felt confident and more efficient when I started working with Marc. We came up with a personalized study plan. Marc is extremely friendly and great to work with, he makes you feel comfortable when learning and that will boost your confidence immediately. We would have sessions once or twice per week over the course a few months and we covered everything from high level strategy, test taking tips, and of course, covering lots and lots of practice problems. The most important thing that Marc was able to teach me was HOW to take the test - time management, strategic skipping (especially on Quant), etc. - these things take time to learn but once you get better at taking the test your score will improve. Marc also gives you lots and lots of little tricks so that you start seeing patterns in certain quant problems - you start recognizing "the tricks" to certain problems so you know how to solve them immediately. These are things you cannot get from just taking the typical class. Once I got good at this after lots of hard work and repetition, my score improved from the 630 level to 700+.

Bottom line: Although it was a lot of additional time and effort, it was well worth the investment. If you are struggling with the GMAT, I guarantee Marc can help you drastically improve your score.

This review is for: Veritas Prep Full Course
Taught by: Ryan McGorman

I took the Veritas Prep Class twice. There was a lot of content to learn, and Ryan did a great job flushing it out. After the first time I took the class I felt overwhelmed but stuck with the material. After taking the test and getting an OK score, I retook the class for free. I found myself really clicking with the class, teacher, and curriculum the second time and got a score that I was proud of. Overall, I would highly recommend this course. I took mine with Ryan McGorman, he was very helpful, considerate and engaging- both times!

This review is for: Veritas Prep Full Course
Taught by: Mark Porath

I took the Full Veritas Gmat Course with Mark Porath in Los Angeles between Feb and July 2015. I strongly recommend this course because it is well divided into sections according to Gmat and allows you to refresh and review quant and verbal skills. Mark was a really good teacher and he explained the quant and verbal sections in some easy ways that anyone can get right the question in the proper time. I loved the way he explains rates… I always get those problems right!!
Mark was paying attention to our progress and he was very compromised to help us get a high score.

This review is for: Veritas Prep Full Course
Taught by: Ryan McGorman

I took a 6 week classroom course with Ryan McGorman. I can not recommend this course highly enough. My score improved by 110 points! (this is based on a gmac practice test week 1 and the official exam week 7).

The Veritas course materials break down the immense amount of information into realistic problem sets. Each class session builds on the last. It is vital not to miss a class. The practice tests and additional resources offered on the Veritas site helped in my GMAT prep and in my MBA planning. The practice tests seemed to accurately reflect the actual exam.

My instructor, Ryan, was genuinely interested in our success. He encouraged class participation so we understood the concepts more deeply. He was positive and created an encouraging environment. I am so glad I took his course.

This review is for: Veritas Prep Full Course
Taught by: Ravi Sreerama

I spent hours, days, basically forever online scouring reviews for different GMAT courses. Veritas Prep came up pretty often, and almost all of the ones from LA had the same comment, sign up for Ravi's class. So I did. And now that I've finished, I have one word of advice -sign up for Ravi's class.

Ravi teaches the material in a fun, straight-forward, and very easy to understand way. The class taught me not just how to master the material, but specifically (and very importantly) the strategies needed to score high.

In all of my past education from elementary to university, I have never had a teacher as effective as Ravi. You can tell he knows everything backwards and forwards. If you doubt his credentials, you should know he has both an MBA and a JD. There's really nothing else that can be said. Well he's also really cool. So there's that.

This review is for: Veritas Prep Full Course
Taught by: Ryan McGorman

The Veritas Prep course was great. They thoroughly teach you the material and provide skill builders and homework problems. There are additional practice problems and practice tests that are online.

Ryan was great! He was a great instructor and knew all the content very well. He was always available for further questions and you could tell he really cared about the students.

Although the course was 6 weeks, it felt very short still. This course is very heavy on content. We did get through all of the work, but it felt very rushed still.

I have not taken any other prep courses but I do recommended Veritas Prep.

I decided to take Ravi's GMAT prep course through Veritas after reading great reviews online. I had many courses to chose from and I felt that this was the best one more me. The course was twice a week and we covered all the material necessary in the short amount of time. I want to give Ravi full credit for this course. He made efficient use of the class time and made sure that all topics were covered clearly. Even though I reviewed the material prior to coming into class, I felt that just hearing the strategies from Ravi (which differed sometimes from the book) was vital to my success. Overall, he was very energized during the course (which was at night). If you're studying for the GMAT, then you should definitely consider Veritas and Ravi.

I would highly recommend Veritas Prep to anyone considering a full GMAT prep class. The customer service team was very helpful, responsive, and easy to work with. I was able to sample the first class of the course before paying for the course, and customer service made sure I had all the materials I needed to be prepared for that first class which was very appreciated. They also made sure to follow up throughout the course to make sure everything was going well.

I think the best part of Veritas is that along with the in-person class, you are given access to an online student account for 1 full year. The student account includes quizzes, problem sets, homework problem solutions, 7 full practice tests, and full videos for every lesson of the class to review. In addition, all the books were available for download to tablets/mobile devices through the online account. There was also access to comprehensive top MBA Programs guides. I took advantage of all these resources, and the experience wouldn't have been the same without them.

What made my class stand out the most, however, was my instructor RAVI. Ravi is among the best teachers I have ever had, and his true and deep understanding of the GMAT makes him an invaluable resource when preparing for this exam. Ravi was also able to control and lead the class of about 20 students while still giving a certain amount of personal attention to every student - I definitely did not have this caliber of a teacher in my Kaplan SAT prep class. His control of the class, and easy to understand and apply GMAT tricks made each 3 hour session fly by. I was nervous about signing up for a 7PM-10PM class twice a week after work, but I was amazed to find that solely due to Ravi's teaching style the class flew by, and I nearly always felt at the end of the class that I could continue learning/practicing for another hour at least. I cannot say enough good things about Ravi. He made me feel so much more confident about a test I was fearful of, and on test day his words "do it right, do it once" resonated as I went through every single problem and successfully got a score I was hoping for.

The Vertias program was great. It was A LOT of information to go through, but Ravi made it manageable and gave some great test taking advice throughout the program. The GMAT test makers make this test to trick you, but Ravi does an amazing job at pointing out the common ways they do this and shows you time saving methods to get around them. Some that differ from even the book. I was really nervous about the quant section. I haven't touched math in almost 16 years, but Ravi shows you ways of doing the problem without having to do crazy math, to a point I felt like I could actually handle this section. You obviously have to put in the time to re-learn the basics, but Ravi's technique demystifies the GMATs and leaves you well armed for success. He is also am amazing coach and is always willing to answer your questions. If you have the opportunity to work with Ravi on getting ready for this exam - do it!!

Ravi is absolutely brilliant! I did not take the GMAT before starting the course and I am glad I didn't. The way of thinking is much different than conventional tests and Ravi did a great job at teaching those concepts. I would recommend him specifically, so do yourself a favor and take this course.

The Verbal and Math sections he covers are extremely helpful, but be sure to do the skill builders before each lesson. I am excited to study more and take the Gmat in the near future with the vital test taking tools that Ravi has taught me.

Good luck everyone!!
