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.

Before I signed up for the course, I was scoring around 700 on practice exams, with my verbal score much higher than quant. I chose Veritas because they seemed to have good reviews and their course had the most hours for the price, which I was hoping would help me to pace my studying and force me to review key concepts. You get a ton of materials when you sign up for the course including a stack of books (one for each topic covered), online videos, question banks and solutions, and practice tests.

The course provided an excellent overview of the topics you need to know for the test. If you do all the pre-work and homework, you should have a solid grasp of all the underlying concepts. There was one class where we talked about pacing and general strategies. As it turns out those tips helped me the most and I actually wish we had been able to spend more time on those topics.

Once I used the pacing tips I started scoring in the high 700s and eventually got a 770 on test day. I'm very happy with my score and I think the course helped me by filling in some knowledge gaps on quant, and providing some test-taking strategies. After the class I spent 5-6 weeks doing as many hard problems as I could find and taking timed practice tests. I do think it is important to do a lot of timed problems in addition to the course to truly prepare yourself.

Ethan was an amazing instructor. It is hard to keep the interest of 15-20 overworked MBA applicants, but he managed to do a phenomenal job. He always brought a ton of enthusiasm to the classes which helped us all to stay focused after work. He also provided additional non-Veritas Prep materials that I found very useful. He's clearly a smart guy, great instructor, and cares about how his students are doing.

Overall, I would highly recommend Veritas' live online course, just remember that the course can't prep for you and you need to do a lot of work outside of the class to improve.

I took a class under Ethan Todras-Whitehil and he's hands down one of the best teachers in this business. He's super funny and super interactive. He always stays back after class to help you out.

This course is pretty advanced so you do need some prior knowledge before coming in. Otherwise you can get up to date by doing the practice assignments before each class (its LONG).

This course is perfect if you have a 550-650 and you want to aim higher.

I immediately took the GMAT right after my class was over (without doing any further practice tests, etc.) and I improved my score by 100. Not bad at all. Can't wait to rally put in the time and see how it goes in a few months time.

While I initially signed up for the in person course, it was cancelled due to the lack of registrants.

They gave me a ~$200 discount and signed me up for the online course. I was fortunate after all, as the logistics of leaving work in Phoenix then driving to Tempe would of been a bit of a hassle in the middle of what would be an 11+ hour day.

The biggest improvement I found was the skill builders in the guides. Do them every time. Do them before the test too. They are simple and will not rack your brain but they will reinforce the concepts that you NEED to know in order to do well in the tests.

Ravi was a great proctor. Fun, but stern with his insistence of getting the answers correct because you know the formula of how to do it successfully within frame of how you need to go about answering questions on the GMAT. Not because you guessed it or used a method that won't help you for the actual GMAT questions.

The walk-through videos, as well as the ability to comment and ask questions about the homework was critically important as well.

While I improved on everything including my Quant score, my IR score went from a 4 to a perfect 8.

Highly recommend Veritas Prep to anyone looking to improve their GMAT score. The course schedule kept me on track and on top of my studying. The strategies taught in the classes have been really useful - my GMAT score went up 130 points after taking the course. Ravi was a great instructor as well - his teaching style really helped me stay focused during the class (which is saying a lot for a 3 hour lesson after a full work day). He is also very responsive in any test studying/strategy questions you may have, which made the online experience a little more personal. Overall, great experience and would definitely recommend Ravi as an instructor!

I took the Veritas Live Online Course in early 2015. The instructor, Ravi Sreerama, was excellent. Right on point and fantastic to learn from - the classes were a pleasure with him and I actually find I missed them once it was over! The online format worked really well too (it was just like being in a classroom, except much more convenient - plus you could re-watch the classes any time you wanted). The course content was very comprehensive, but perhaps the books even had too much information (they could've been shorter). Overall a very positive experience - I would recommend it to all.

Ravi was simply a fantastic course instructor. I had taken a couple of other GMAT prep courses prior to taking Ravi’s Veritas Prep course, and Ravi was by far the best instructor. He has the unique ability to distill complex topics into easily digestible lessons. His engaging teaching style and genuine interest in his students’ success make him an obvious choice. Furthermore, Ravi does a great job focusing on what students must know to be successful on the GMAT. I really enjoyed the class structure because I was able to practice problems under a test-day time constraint and diagnose my weaknesses and issues with problem approach. Ultimately, the course allowed me to be strategic in my test preparation and execute on test day. I highly recommend Ravi without reservation.

I had a great experience in the Veritas Prep Live Online GMAT course. My instructor, Chris Kane, and his TA, Brandon Pierpont, managed to make 3 hour classes extremely entertaining and every class I had several moments where complicated concepts finally just clicked in my head.

Chris Kane did a great job at simplifying some complex concepts. He also made sure to focus on the key takeaways from each problem in order to highlight the different strategies that the test makers employ to trick the test taker. I would recommend this course to anyone looking for a solid GMAT Prep course.

I took the online Veritas course with Ravi Sreerama and it was a very positive experience. My GMAT score was 100 points higher than my first diagnostic. Without question, Ravi is talented at what he does. He was very transparent from the get go that if you want to improve your score, you must put in the work to do so. Despite being online, he kept the students engaged, and was very clear in explaining complicated concepts, and answering questions. Overall, the course, along with Ravi's own insights provided many time-saving strategies for the actual test, especially with the quant section (the section which i needed the most improvement). He preaches that for tangible improvement students must study as efficiently as possible and address their weaknesses head on. His class is definitely a value.

Ethan was a fantastic teacher of the GMAT material. He was able to connect with students at multiple skill-levels without sacrificing quality of the course. I appreciated his strategies and tips for the test. I have studied other company's materials in the past without much success but with Ethan's help through the Veritas material I am much more prepared.

I have taken a few practice tests during and after the class and my official test is coming up in a few weeks. I have seen improvement in my understanding of the material and in my overall score. I would recommend Ethan as a teacher especially if you are considering Veritas Prep.
