Ravi was an excellent instructor this course is worth the money. If you follow Veritas Preps lesson plan then there is no way your score won't improve. The main take away I got from Ravi is to "Dumb it Down" keeping things simple and if it looks like its too much work and I'm doing to much work than I'm probably missing the point. the point of the gmat is to work smart not hard. These lessons break down the fundamentals showing you what the question is asking, why they're being asked and how to answer the correct questions while understanding why the other answer choices are wrong.

After reviewing several GMAT preparation services y decided to go with Veritas Prep, and I can say that they surpassed in a very positive way all my expectations. David Newland, the instructor, knows the GMAT perfectly and is able to transmit this knowledge in a simple and fun way. I truly enjoyed David’s class as he showed a genuine desire to help us succeed on the GMAT. The online platform is spectacular with top of the line technology and as long as you have a decent internet connection you won’t miss the regular classes. Honestly, it is like taking a perfectly dynamic and collaborative class from a front row seat, minus all the hassles of traveling, etc. The online site is excellent and has sufficient and organized material to keep you busy and on schedule. I highly recommend Veritas Prep for your GMAT preparation; I was so satisfied with the GMAT course that I decided to use them as admission consultants as well. I hope this review helps and good luck.

Chris Kane is wicked smart, super responsive to everyone's comments in the chat, and has the odd ability to know what we're thinking when we make mistakes in class. Don't think you can sit through a three-hour session and just breeze by - a stickler for accuracy and precision, he won't let any of our assumptions slide if they're not 100% bulletproof. Veritas is expensive, but Chris and Brandon (the TA) and others' participation in class made it worth it!

Prior to taking his class, I scored a 530 on my very first Veritas practice test. Immediately after taking the class, I scored 630 on practice tests. Concerned, I reached out to Chris, and he made himself available for coffee, where he gave me specific instructions and created a personalized study plan for me to break the 700 barrier. What also really helped during this time was being able to send any questions I had to the Veritas customer service email and get answers from Karishma and other Veritas instructors within 24 hours. Two and a half months later, I was able to score a 720 on the official exam. Could not have done this without Chris and Veritas. Thanks so much!

I was hesitant to take an online course. I was concerned about the effectiveness and the ability of the class to focus on individual student concerns. With that being said, Veritas Prep has MASTERED online teaching.

The platform is very unique. The teacher is live during the entire course time and there is a chat room with all the other students in it. There is a moderator in the chat room that you can type questions too and she works in conjunction with the teacher. The teacher can also see everything you're chatting and will even throw in comments and answer questions (he just says them out loud, instead of typing them.) It really DOES feel like you're in a real time classroom.

On top of it, all classes, including chats, are recorded and you are given access to them for 1 year. This is GREAT for someone like me! My course ran from 8 p.m. - 11 p.m. because I'm on the east coast and I work too early to stay up that late every class day. I would typically sit through the first two hours and then watch the last hour the next day. This was very helpful to me.

The pre-class quizzes made sure you did your prep work. The homework was for your benefits! They definitely provide as much structure as possible, for those who aren't as self motivated as others. Between the pre-class quizzes, the class, and the homework, you definitely have the tools to do well.

Onto my teacher, Ravi. Oh Ravi, I will always remember your laugh at our classes corny jokes. Ravi is intelligent and entertaining, exactly what you need with this type of material! He was able to answer questions in great detail, without stumbling or making up BS answers. He engaged the class by reading the chat room content while teaching (how does he do that?!) and had anecdotes and jokes for us to keep the class moving. I choose him after reading on the forums that he's the best, and I'm really glad I did. He is an excellent teacher and I felt comfortable asking him questions and getting honest feedback.

Thank you for such a great experience Veritas! I'm taking my GMAT soon and I'm excited to see the results.

This review is for: Veritas Prep On-Demand
Location: Online

I have taken the On-Demand Course. I must say it is most comprehensive service out there. Apart from the online Video lessons you would receive a set of 12 books.

Each lessons contains the set of homework problems. The homework problems can be accessed in the books or in the online platform. The Books only contains the OA. We can download the OE(PDF Copies) if we want. The online homework problems can be done sets or lesson-wise under each sections.

The teaching methodology is quite different from other test prep companies. Brian, the Veritas Prep instructor tells the student to learn by doing. And the Veritas Prep pyramid way of approaching the problems. First stuff the course teaches you to understand the skill required via skillbuilders. And then teaches us to learn by doing via skills meet strategy and finally helps us to think like a test maker to reach 700+ Score.

All the books emphasis on learning by doing. It definitely helped me when i was getting plateaued.

The 12 Mocks which comes with purchase is little too much since most students will have the 2 free GMATPREP and 2 exam pack. This takes to 16 tests!!. I would do all the GMATPREP since it's from the testmaker and 3 or 4 from Veritas Prep. The most important thing, i noticed is that the Veritas Prep score were in range to the GMATPREP score. And as many says Veritas Prep test are close to the GMATPREP.

The Advance Verbal Strategies just tells us to think like a test maker when we encounter a difficult verbal problem to get those correct and get above 700+ Score.

Overall, the course was really good and the student service for any queries were excellent- Mostly i got reply within 36 hours.

Ravi Sreerama is an absolute rock star!!

Before taking Ravi's online Veritas Prep Live Online course, I was a volatile test taker and my scores reflected that. He changed how I approached questions and forced me to think logically rather than aimlessly stumble through equations till I came to a solution. He also gave me the confidence to use logic and not panic if I saw a question format that seemed foreign. I would highly recommend this course (and especially Ravi) to anyone looking to take the GMAT.

PS. For an online class is was really interactive (using instant msg) and fun!!

Ravi was a fantastic teacher. He was engaged throughout the 6 week course and made every effort to answer each question. Ravi knows his strategies very well and his explanations were easy to understand. I was a bit skeptical about taking an online course, but Ravi was very receptive and engaging. There is also an additional instructor in the class to answer questions. My worry was that questions would not get answered due to the scale of the class, but that was not a issue at all! Ravi would message people individually when we saw it fit. Highly recommend him and Veritas!

I was definitely cautious of an online prep course as I have never used something like it before. However, I signed up and boy was I impressed. The features and ease of use of the website was great, not to mention that you get to sit on your couch but still feel like you are in a class room. For those that are less likely to participate in a live class, like me, I definitely participated more and got more out of it because of the ability to chat directly with the professor or TA. Veritas provides all the books for supplemental study; furthermore, tons of tests and practice questions/answers/video answers, etc. Ravi was great. Super informative and friendly but will drive you to a better score with tough questions and answers. Definitely recommend Veritas and Ravi!

This review is for: Veritas Prep Full Course
Taught by: Jennifer Rich

The class was eye opening to what I need to do to prepare for the GMAT. Whether you think you know math or not, this class will help you not only with answering the questions, but how to approach the test.

Jennifer Rich was very knowledgeable in every subject. She was also a very good teacher that would expand our minds to think differently than we have for so many years. I was grateful to have her as a teacher since she was always making sure we all understood every question, and she took her time to explain the difficult ones with charts, graphs, timelines, and other methods you do not see in a regular classroom.

I would recommend this class to anyone who wants to do well on the GMAT. The money was well spent.

The class that I took with Ravi Sreerama as my teacher really did a great job in preparing me for the GMAT. There were plenty of great tips and pointers throughout the lesson that I am sure will help me at test time. The class was also well thought out, with an in depth look in 12 separate 3 hour sections. Although this may sound like it could be boring, Ravi managed to keep the class interesting and entertaining for everyone through engagement with the students. He also did a great job juggling answering questions along with keeping up the fast pace that we needed to maintain. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone looking to take the GMAT.
