This review is for: Veritas Prep Full Course
Location: Washington, DC USA
Taught by: Eric Maltzer

If you are looking for a class that covers every aspect of the GMAT in depth, Veritas Prep should be at the top of your list. Yes the class is expensive but the material presented is worth every penny. It is not
enough to simply know what information is covered on the GMAT. You need to know strategies for
answering each different type of question and Veritas Prep will give you those strategies.

Veritas has excellent material but the real difference maker for me was the instructor. The instructor in
my Veritas Prep class was Eric Maltzer and he was phenomenal. The classes ran late into the evening
(7pm-10pm) on Tuesdays and Thursdays but he did an excellent job presenting the material with energy
and insight. Eric was well prepared for each class and made a good effort to get to know each student. I
had one, sit-down, one-on-one discussion with him but others in my class had two or even three of
these discussions. He made himself available outside of class hours and even after the class was
complete. About 4 weeks after the classes ended I emailed Eric a question about the GMAT and he
responded the same day. He truly cares and wants to see each person he instructs perform well. Like I
said earlier, it isn't enough to simply know the material for the GMAT you need to me mentally agile and creative in how you solve GMAT problems and that's what Eric taught us.

Veritas is good at explaining a section then giving the class a couple of problems to solve. These
problems allow students to apply new knowledge and ask questions. Doing a couple of problems right
away helped the information sink in more for me.
My starting score on 25 May was 580 (38Q, 29V, determined through a Veritas GMAT exam).

Immediately after the class finished my score was 600 and I had done almost no studying beyond sitting through class. I know a 20-point jump isn't much but my verbal (weakest part of the test for me) went from a 29 to a 35 simply by sitting through class. Three days before I took the GMAT, I took my final practice test (again through a Veritas GMAT exam) and scored a 670 (40Q and 40V). I knew a score that high would get me into the program I wanted so I was completely relaxed going into the exam. I took the GMAT exam on 26 July and scored a 680 (46Q and 37V). I scored a 4.5 on the analytical writing. To Veritas’s credit they had excellent material on analytical writing and Eric gave an exceptional 90 minute class on writing. I simply chose not to focus my efforts on the writing portion and it showed. I received a 6 on the integrated reasoning section. Veritas had good material on the integrated reasoning section and Eric had taken a GMAT exam with the integrated reasoning about two weeks before the class ended so he had a lot of insight on that section. I felt my time was better spent focusing on the quantitative and verbal sections so that’s what I did. Overall my total score improved by 100 points from my first practice exam to the actual GMAT. Simply put, the results speak for themselves.

On 15 August 2012 I received my acceptance letter from the University of Michigan. That was my
ultimate goal and I truly believe Veritas Prep and specifically, Eric Maltzer were a big part of me being
accepted. I am now enrolled and starting classes on 5 September. If you need a high GMAT score to get
into a business program I highly recommend Veritas Prep. If you’re in the DC area, you should look up
Eric Maltzer.

I was very pleased with the Veritas Prep Full Course. The lessons were well organized, comprehensive, and very useful. The instructor covered all sections thoroughly and was very open to homework questions outside of class. Anthony was friendly and used easy to understand language throughout the course. The course can be challenging due to the amount of homework and class time required; but the whole experience was definitely worth it. The class location was very convenient and provided a comfortable learning environment. The online resources, particularly practice tests, were very useful. I recommend this course to all users of this website.

If you're looking to get in proper GMAT shape, look no further than Veritas and Anthony.

My first practice test: 590
Seven weeks later...
First official GMAT: 750

Veritas has an outstanding understanding of the test and it provides excellent tools to communicate that understanding. From the insightful and mindset-preparing introductory note to the numerous practice tests (including helpful answer explanations), the curriculum is simply spot on.

More importantly, I found Anthony's take on the class to be incredibly valuable. His ability to reinforce core concepts efficiently is masterful, weaving important GMAT skills in and out of lessons with memorable examples.

For GMAT students in DC, the decision is simple. Choose Veritas and Anthony

Location: Washington, DC USA
Taught by: Anthony Ritz

The class was very thorough, starting from math basics that we learned in high school which many of us have forgotten. From there it built on those foundations and covered every possible topic/question that the GMAT could cover. In addition to ensuring that the quant and verbal basics were drilled into our minds, Veritas as well as Anthony gave us a very solid strategy of attacking each section and type of question (which really helps on the time aspect). It was a very intense class with lots of homework, but paid off in the end in getting me the score I wanted and needed to be a competitive applicant (above 700).

The hotel where our classes were held shifted our schedule and room around a lot, which led to a lot of confusion. On the final day, this actually resulted in a couple of us not being able to find the correct room and missing a class. Anthony took time out of his own schedule the following week to privately come and teach us that lesson, which was very nice of him.

Veritas continually surprised me throughout my studying journey with the breadth of resources available. I am a mix of auditory and visual learner, so in person classes are the best way to learn. However, Veritas also offered on the go instructional videos that you could watch and listen to while doing just about anything. They also had private tutoring which was excellent, and their books were all available via e-reader.
My instructor was available at all hours of the day for calls about tough questions and moral support. He was excited and positive throughout the process and never was stumped by a question.

Brian taught me in May of 2015 at the Hilton hotel in Washington DC.
I was getting the 600’s, but I wanted to break the 700 to get into a top school. Brian helped me achieve the 700.
Not only did I need someone who already broke the 700 and could teach GMAT, but I also wanted someone who went to a top MBA school so he can give me some admissions advice and some attendance advice.
He was very helpful after the course as well. Whenever I needed help when practicing, or help to give me a moral push, I would send him an email and he would respond.
For example, I had a gap between my QUANT score and my Verbal score, and I was worried that top MBA schools would ding me because of this. I was worried so I sent an email to Bryan. He did comfort me and tell me that it was not a huge factor to create a ding.
I appreciated his assistance with helping me break the 700! I would recommend Brian as an MBA instructor.

I took the course in late fall. It was 7-10:15 so if you take it prepare for late nights and much thinking. The course is very in depth and to many the material will be new. Many good skills come from this. Anthony Ritz is very funny and engaging.
Six weeks was a lot of time and tough to do. I took the test two weeks after the course ended and increased my GMAT score by 170 points since the last time i took the test in May. Had it not been for two rouge weekends i could have don better. I suggest starting with the veritas practice tests for the first three takes and then moving on to the official gmat practice tests for the last three of four. Thanks!

Anthony Ritz is an amazing GMAT professor. He is able to effectively communicate the core competencies and strategies required to handle all problem styles. More importantly, he made studying for the GMAT and classroom discussion actually fun. Even though my greatest hurdle in preparing for the GMAT was mental (i.e. dealing with stress), he never looked down on me or frowned upon my performance. I scheduled roughly 6-8 hours of outside tutoring time with Anthony to improve my verbal score, particularly focusing on sentence correction. Veritas Private tutoring is fairly expensive, so Anthony made sure every minute of private tutoring was used to the student’s benefit. Studying for the GMAT is stressful, but I am forever thankful that Anthony was there for even when I wanted to give up on myself. For these reasons and many more, I highly recommend anyone seriously interested in excelling on the GMAT to sign up for Anthony’s class. I was able to retake the course without any qualms.

I took the full course with Veritas in June-July 2015 in Washington, DC. Our class instructor was Anthony Ritz. Anthony was excellent. I really enjoyed every class that he taught. He makes complex concepts easy to understand and apply, makes studying fun and the overall class experience enjoyable. As a lawyer (a partner in a law firm), I appreciate his unique combination of law and math majors for a GMAT instructor. I believe that adds tremendous value as he understands well and can teach effectively both quant and verbal sections. I would highly recommend him. I also must say that the study books and online materials provided by Veritas were quite helpful, and you can use the online materials for a year after the completion of the course, which is great!

I took the Veritas Prep full course with Anthony Ritz. Anthony is a fantastic teacher who focuses on providing added value that the books and online aids cannot. He does a marvelous job going through the why, how, and meaning of each question which is important since GMAT is not an exam where you can just memorize questions or question types. I also had some private tutoring with Anthony and if you need it I suggest signing up with him. He's been a tutor for some time now and knows how to find your problem areas, drill them, and lead you to get more questions right. A serious teacher for a serious exam indeed.
