This review is for:   Veritas Prep Full Course | Location:   Pittsburgh (West), PA USA  | Taught by:  John Chismody
I took the Veritas Prep GMAT course up at CMU 1.5 times, coming back again for some of the quant classes, and I had a very good experience. I had very little interaction with the Veritas HQ, but when i did they were accommodating and helpful.

What really set this course apart was the instructor John Chismody. Not only is John a character in himself worthy of his own TV series, but also he shares his extensive experience as a GMAT and math teacher, as well as his former career as an MBA consultant in NYC. He has helped prepare so many students get into top 5 and 10 schools that he knows all the little tips and tricks with the GMAT and beyond, sharing tips on constructing essays and school choice strategies.

In my case John proved to be an amazing resource with math as that was my weak point. During class he went beyond the veritas book and created pop quizzes and managed to explain complex concepts in a straightforward manner. Beyond that, when I got a contingent offer to Cornell and had to take the quant section of the GRE John helped me with GRE tactics and finding exercise resources.

John has been an indispensable asset on my journey to get an MBA, and I'm very grateful for the course and his expertise as I start my MBA at Cornell this fall.

I have not taken the GMAT yet, however this course was extremely helpful. The quantitative sections were taught tremendously and we were given great instructions on how to approach different types of problems. The books were also very helpful, as was the website. The instructor was very intelligent and was able to solve every problem in multiple ways.
On the other hand, the verbal section was not looked over as much as the math section. I did not mind this, because I am looking into finance programs and most of them only care about the math score. Overall, a good experience.
