This review is for:   Veritas Prep Full Course | Location:   Philadelphia, PA 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.

This review is for:   Manhattan GMAT 9-Session Prep Course | Location:   Philadelphia, PA USA  | Taught by:  Abby Pelcyger
Working with a Manhattan GMAT tutor was fantastic. I had access to the full series of Manhattan GMAT courses as well as one-on-one sessions with a tutor. Manhattan GMAT teaches the methodology needed to master the GMAT and its instructors are patient, knowledgeable, and capable of explaining both material and approach.

Manhattan GMAT books are very good at breaking down all of the material in particular types of questions. The books give sample questions to practice with and MGMAT even has detailed explanations for the "real GMAT" questions from the MBA official guide books. For those answers alone the company is worth using.

If you are serious about the GMAT, Manhattan GMAT will give you the tools and support to succeed. I definitely recommend Manhattan GMAT!

This review is for:   Manhattan GMAT 9-Session Prep Course | Location:   Philadelphia, PA USA  | Taught by:  Abby Pelcyger
I started this prep course having never opened a GMAT prep book, and improved my score 80 points from my initial practice test to test day. I went into the GMAT feeling prepared and ready to take on the test, and I was able to achieve my goal score on my first actual GMAT.

Abby provided a clear overview of how the course and the process would work. In class, she was patient and did a great job explaining strategy and reviewing practice problems. She challenged us to ALWAYS answer, even if it's a guess, which was great prep for the test. She encouraged group discussion when we disagreed about answers, and forced us to use the proven strategies when approaching problems. She was always available via email when we had questions, and created a non-threatening environment for a prep process that could potentially be viewed as highly competitive, given how the GMAT works.

Overall, I can't say enough nice things about Manhattan GMAT. The homework seems daunting at times, but you need that level of work and practice to go into test day feeling ready. I qualified for the post course assessment, and I was so glad I did! I had a half hour phone conversation two weeks before my test date that gave me a clear gameplan for what exactly I needed to focus on leading up to my test.

I highly recommend this course. It's expensive, but in the long run, given what you will pay for an MBA program, it is so well worth the investment! You do need to be ready to commit 5-10 extra hours a week to homework, so make sure you do the course during a time period when you have that time available,

This review is for:   Manhattan GMAT 9-Session Prep Course | Location:   Philadelphia, PA USA  | Taught by:  Abby Berry
The Manhattan GMAT 9-session course kept me accountable for studying and provided me a study plan to get the 99th percentile score I was shooting for.

My instructor, Abby, did a phenomenal job laying out the foundations of both verbal and quant, and emphasizing the importance of mastering the skills that you need to crack the GMAT.

I was very impressed with Abby's ability to cater to the specific needs of my small class- I think this really helped us focus collectively on what we needed to work on. Similarly, I thought she did a great job explaining all of the concepts in a clear way, and giving us usable frameworks to attack all of the hardest problems.

I was also quite pleased with the online MGMAT system, which included a way to track individual progress on different types of problems. I think this is a program that will help anyone improve their Nicole significantly if they are willing to put in the time and effort required to complete the assigned work.

This review is for:   Veritas Prep Full Course | Location:   Philadelphia, PA USA  | Taught by:  Neil Moakley
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.

Veritas Prep review

This review is for:   Veritas Prep Full Course | Location:   Philadelphia, PA USA  | Taught by:  Neil Moakley
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!
