This review is for:   Manhattan GMAT 9-Session Prep Course | Location:   Princeton, NJ USA  | Taught by:  Dmitry Farber
I took the 9-Week Live Online Manhattan GMAT course last winter with JR Tomkinson and Tommy Wallach. I really did not know much, if anything, about the GMAT prior to signing up for the course, and needless to say, they cover just about everything that you will see on the test.

I did, however, drop the ball and did not take the GMAT again until the middle of November. I used all of the class materials, notes, CATs, OG Archer (their official guide explanations, also keeps track of your timing, etc.), books, etc. -- pretty much everything they had in the Student Center.

I did not do as well on the Quant as I would have liked the first time around (November 2013), so I signed for 10 hours of online tutoring with Dmitry Farber. Dmitry was able to hone in on some thematic issues I was having on the Quant and gave me several different approaches to use with a variety of Quant problems. With his help, I was able to bump both my Quant and Verbal scores up, with my Quant going up significantly, in just the 32 or so days between tests.

This review is for:   Veritas Prep Full Course | Location:   Princeton, NJ USA  | Taught by:  Jen Begasse
I took the course offered in New Brunswick, NJ (was not part of the drop-down options), and then followed up with one-on-one tutoring sessions to work on my personal weaknesses.

I did a lot of research and Veritas is a much better option than some GMAT course options out there. I have taken a Kaplan course a few years ago when I first took the GMAT. In addition to teaching test strategies (which seemed to be what Kaplan mostly focused on), Veritas provides a much deeper review of the basic concepts which most people have not learned since junior high school. Veritas also gives students a higher number of in-class hours with great online lessons and a homework/practice test component. Veritas allows students have online access for an extended period of time after the course, which is helpful if you want to brush up on any topics.

My score improved 210 points from the first time I took the GMAT (after my Kaplan course) to when I recently took it (after the Veritas course). If you need to break 600 and 700, Veritas may give you the extra "kick" and help you perfect your score. However, keep in mind, that there is no magic solution, Veritas will give you great tools, but you’ll still have to put in the hours where you’ll need to get good and fast at utilizing those tools. Overall, I am very pleased with the help Veritas provided me with and my results.

This review is for:   Veritas Prep Full Course | Location:   Princeton, NJ USA  | Taught by:  Steve Odabashian
Let me start out by saying that I am not a good standardized test taker by any means. I've struggled with these tests all my life, constantly performing below what someone of my GPA would expect. From class 1, Steve helped explain the GMAT in an understandable and helpful way. Each week he would ask if he had questions about our homework and never stopped encouraging us to bring him questions. Not only would he explain how he got the correct answer, Steve would try to understand how one of us got it wrong based on our thinking and therefore, correct our process. Steve also didn't rush us through topics that we were struggling with, allowing us to have time to digest the material in class rather than being overly confused when we went to do the homework. Even since the course has ended, Steve has reached out to us a few times offering any help and wishing us luck on the exam.

As for the course itself, I thought it was great! Each class was a different topic, which kept it interesting each time we met. I never felt bored. In fact, I would usually look up at the clock and be surprised how much time went by. There is a lot of homework, but it only helps reinforce what you need to know. Over the 6 weeks of the course, it truly became my life outside of work, but it's paying off with the results I've been getting on my practice exams.

At first I was a little hesitant spending all this money on a course, but I can honestly say that I'm very glad I did it. It was worth every dollar and I would recommend it to anyone who wanted to take a course that will actually give results.

Review for the New Brunswick Location w/ Steve Odabashian

This review is for:   Veritas Prep Full Course | Location:   Princeton, NJ USA  | Taught by:  Steve Odabashian
This review is for the New Brunswick, NJ location; there isn't a selection for this option under the GMATClub's choices.

I would like to commend the instructor, Steve Odabashian, for a great job of teaching. Steve spent a lot of time and effort in teaching the Veritas Prep materials and also personalizing the course to each student's needs. Steve also went above and beyond and provided tips and insights on how to succeed on the GMAT based on his own test-taking strategies and experience.

After taking this course with Steve, I feel a lot more confident in my preparations for the GMATs.
