I have used almost every available GMAT test prep material our there, and I can say, without a doubt, that VP stands above the rest.

Not only are their materials fantastic (and, in my opinion, the most similar to GMATPrep), but their employees and customer service are top notch. They genuinely care about your individual success and that made all the difference for me.

I sat for the GMAT 5 times, starting with a baseline score of 490. My last take was a 760 (99th percentile). I was not only admitted into my choice school, but I have been contacted by choice consulting firms.

If I had to describe VP (and not just their test prep, but their other services as well) in a word: Life-changing.

Veritas Prep is an amazing GMAT prep experience. It is evident that the organization gave careful thought to the structure of their student experience, from the sales experience, to the comprehensive online student portal, to the creative (and sometimes appropriately wacky) teachers. During the sales experience, I spoke with someone over the phone and he quickly answered all of my questions and then some. He also followed up diligently and concierged me into the experience (I purchased the package about two or three weeks before the course started and the sales associate helped me get up and running during that lead up time).

Once you enroll, Veritas Prep gives you access to an online student portal that houses a study plan, practice tests, practice problems, videos and recordings of your class. I found this one-stop shop very intuitive and helpful to help organize my efforts (because we all know that GMAT studying can go in multiple different directions). They also sent me 12 dense lesson books; spend the time to read through them, they have some good content in there. I really liked the philosophy of Veritas Prep (focus on strategy and reasoning, rather than content memorization). A previous course that I took did not touch on strategy at all and I think that's what prevented me from realizing my fullest potential.

I took an online live class with a teacher by the name of Ethan Todras-Whitehill. He is a little bit out there, but at the same time, you almost need someone like that to help bring the content to life, engrain it in your mind so come test day you remember certain techniques. The classroom environment he created was extremely collaborative (I've never taken an online course before, so I was pretty impressed with the technology as well). Ethan also went 'off-book' at points, supplementing the prescribed Veritas Prep material with his own creative slides to help further enforce the strategy and content. Ethan also focuses more on strategy and helps you understand why strategy is so important on the GMAT. At first I didn't trust some of the strategies, but once I gave them a try, I became a believer....THEY WORK! It's evident that Ethan has invested additional time to facilitate a robust learning experience, which I can say was effective at engaging me and keeping me coming back for more.

All in all, i'm in believer in Veritas Prep and would highly recommend the course.

I highly recommend Ethan's online course through Veritas Prep for anyone looking to improve their GMAT score. He has a very solid understanding of all the verbal and quant properties and most importantly is very good communicating them. I have had many professors with lots of knowledge, but who lack the teaching skills to effectively pass on their wealth of information. I was very pleased with how well Ethan was able to convey even the more complicated GMAT strategies. I honestly enjoyed the classes and saw a large improvement in more score. All of the resources provided by Veritas are very helpful as well.

I highly recommend Ethan Todras-Whitehill and Chris Speck (TA)'s online GMAT Prep course with Veritas. I attended the 6-week class a few months ago and achieved a lot of improvement within a short period of time. I took the GMAT again three weeks after having completed the course and finally reached my score goal that I would not have other been able to achieve studying by myself. They are both fun, dedicated and easy to work with. The 6-week format is also an effective way to hold myself accountable for the prep and really spend time focusing on getting the required homework done. I purchased some Manhattan materials prior to signing up for the course Veritas for self-study, but now looking back I really wish I could have done that earlier!

BLUF: I would recommend this instruction to anyone looking to increase their GMAT score, but cannot attend live classroom instruction.

The live online instruction was excellent in its quality of content. For someone like myself who was overseas and located in a place where classroom instruction was not possible, it was a great choice. However, the internet connection I had was not the greatest and therefore I experienced consistent lags in the streaming rate. This resulted in myself missing some of the finer teaching points that Ethan (my instructor) was attempting to communicate. This would occur for the duration of the 3 hour class, and it left me very frustrated at times. The recordings had the same issues. So, if your internet connection speed is average to below average, I would think twice about spending over $1500 on this option. The Veritas Prep Books are excellent themselves as standalone teaching guides.

Instructor Review: Ethan was excellent. His personal tips, tricks, and methods that he adds to the standard Veritas instruction were instrumental in my 70 point increase. Ethan gets the highest recommendation possible, along with his TA Chris. Prospective students should attempt to get into Ethan's class as much as possible.

I took the full time online course with Ravi Sreerma. I was very happy with the product, and I was also very happy with the online interface. That is probably the element I was most nervous about going in, and I was pleasantly surprised. Good interaction from Ravi, the class, and the TA, but not to the point it was annoying. As someone who is working fulltime, I really appreciated the opportunity to do the class from home. Ravi was a great instructor. He really pushed the class to do their best, and you will definitely do your homework once you get hooked on one or two "sucker answers"

I took the Veritas Prep GMAT Online Course with David Newland and he was a great instructor! He made the classes enjoyable while thoroughly explaining each skill and the reasoning(s) behind it. David taught at a good pace so it did not feel like I had to rush to keep up. David and his assistant, Bridget, made a great team. I haven't taken the GMAT yet after the completion of the course, but I feel like I understand the material much more after taking the course. Veritas Prep also sent a book for each class, so there are plenty of practice questions and skill builders. Thank you David and Bridgette!

Going into my GMAT preparation, I thought doing countless practice problems would suffice in order to master the test. After taking a few practice tests and not seeing any change in my score, I realized I needed to take a different approach. Hoping to take the GMAT by October, I signed up for the Full Online Live Course starting August 21st through September 28th. The classes are 3 hours long with an 8-minute break to help simulate what the GMAT breaks will feel like (so helpful day of). The first class serves as an introduction to what the GMAT is and the classes progress in difficulty as the lessons go on. For each class, you do skill-builders to prepare for the upcoming lessons - these really help prepare you to test out new strategies discussed that day.

In terms of the class, we would go through various strategies for problem types and then do a lot of practice problems. What’s great about the course structure is that it’s live! This means that you can ask questions in real time and get answers straight from the teacher. In addition, the platform has multiple choice options so that you can not only submit your answer, but also see the percentage break down of what other people answered.

The absolute highlight of the course was my teacher, Ethan Todras-Whitehill. From day one, his energy and passion for the GMAT made the 3-hour class fly by. He’s incredibly smart and qualified, but very down-to-earth at the same time. He’d get to know each of his students and strove to help everyone understand the subject matter. In addition, he’s hilarious, so even if you’re learning Data Sufficiency, you will end up leaving class with a smile on your face. Once in a while, he’d check up on me to see how the course was going. Even after the course, he emailed to see how studying was coming along. Knowing that someone else was rooting for me really helped motivate me on test day.

By far and away, the Veritas course is worth every penny. My GMAT score jumped 120 points and I gained important logical reasoning skills along the way. Learning how to think like the test maker made all the difference. Thanks Veritas! And most importantly, thanks Ethan!

Ravi Sreerama, through Veritas Prep, did what I considered impossible through a GMAT course. He successfully managed the online classroom, shared great test taking techniques, and gave real, practical, un-sugar coated advice on taking the test and learning progress at the same time. He helped me learn many quantitative topics and greatly improve the quantitative section of the gmat. Ravi has high expectations for his students, driving them to be the best and is uniquely motivating in that you believe you can achieve them. He was by far the best resource I could imagine in facing the GMAT and I learned more than I thought possible through his course.

Rob was an excellent instructor -- one of the best I've had not only in a test prep setting, but overall. It always felt like he truly cared about our success. This was a real difference maker for me, and was a big motivation. No question was too small or "dumb" for him to answer in a thoughtful, caring way. Rob was always "on" -- he was very consistent, and always came into class ready to teach with a positive, caring, energetic and professional attitude -- even when the energy of the class participants themselves was at a low. He would also make himself readily available to answer questions after class, during breaks, or by email. Rob is an overall great guy that you'd be lucky to have as your instructor!
