Veritas Prep was great! The study materials are some of the most in depth that I have seen. Coming from someone who struggled with math, I was able to review the materials a few times and feel comfortable again with GMAT level arithmetic. Although the material seemed daunting at first, it was easy to retain after reviewing a second time and spending more effort on the Skill Builder sections.

Also, Ethan was a phenomenal teacher. He genuinely cares that you learn, and more importantly, retain the material. Everything was very well structured and easy to follow. I highly recommend this class to anyone looking for GMAT prep.

I took a GMAT course with Veritas Prep because they have the most classroom hours and practice tests. I wanted to get the most bang for my buck, but the real value of the course was my instructor.

Meet Ravi, half man, half GMAT destroying machine. This guy is amazing. He teaches the class at a 99% or bust mentality and keeps the class engaged. He knows his material. He breaks down the question, solves it using different strategies and shows you the best approach.

He wants everyone to do well and it really shows. He is quick to respond to emails and he tells us what we should be doing everyday to improve on different sections. Now I have the tools and confidence I need to beat the GMAT. I still have to continue to study after the course, but now I know exactly what I need to focus on, and how to study. If you want to take a GMAT prep course, I highly suggest you take it with Ravi.

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.

Taught by: Mark Robinson

A little preface, I took Manhattan self study a few years ago and sat for the GMAT. I scored in the low 600's.
After contemplating business school, I decided the best chance of my acceptance was to retake the GMAT. After reading numerous reviews online, I decided Veritas Prep was the best choice, especially since they had a money-back guarantee if I didnt beat my previous live GMAT score. The VP materials were excellent and thorough, I think each section clearly broke down the GMAT subjects and strategies needed to master the test. For me personally, an in-person class was very helpful to grasp concepts not easily understood. Our instructor was very good at relating the material to practical business applications( ie: sentence correction errors to real life lawsuits where companies lost millions on the use of the wrong verb conjugation) and had great personal examples (catch phrases, stories, etc.) that allowed me to easily remember material when sitting down and taking the test. My biggest complaints were the classroom and pace of the course. The classroom was small, had tiny tables, was in a mediocre hotel, and constantly smelled of burned plastic. The pace of each night of class was very inconsistent. Often times we would go slow at first, then speed through the end sections(more difficult problems) and not finish each book. We were so slow that we had to add an extra night just to finish all the material, granted it turned out to be a nice review session of all the subjects. Don't think if you go to class, you'll ace the test. Outside of the classroom hours, be prepared to dedicate each weekend to 1 practice test and homework (8 hours at least).

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!

Veritas is a wonderful tool to have when looking into grad school. I had originally taken a practice test and received a 500. I couldn't believe how low my score was and how far I had to go to get into any decent school.

I decided that the ROI of going to a top school was well worth the effort and price tag. I studied all 12 GMAT books over the course of a few months. I would say I spent about 120 hours on studying, private tutoring, and practice tests during that time period.

Rich was a wonderful help to me. I did 24 hours of tutoring with him via Skype and I can't believe how much it helped. I struggled with the entire verbal section and he talked me through strategy and reasoning why every answer was wrong and why the correct answer was right.

I ended up scoring a 41 on verbal, which is in the 94th percentile! I couldn't believe my improvement. I have not only learned how to ace the GMAT, but I've learned skills that will translate into the rest of my life.

Thank you Rich and Veritas for the amazing experience. I couldn't have done it without you.

I took the course at the Washington Hilton with Anthony Ritz.

The books alone seem to be a bit overwhelming, but Anthony really made the difference in understanding the core concepts, what I needed to focus on, and the logic of taking the GMAT. A lot of time was put in outside of class (as expected), but the course helped keep me focused and on track.

Anthony as an instructor was great. He not only knew what he was talking about, but he could explain the concepts in a way that most of the class understood. He also did his best to make the class enjoyable.

I highly Recommend.

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.

Mark is very influential in driving his students to succeed both on the GMAT and in life. Mark is quick to identify hurdles in students lives that will limit their success and helps them plan ways to overcome them to get to the next level. I really like Mark because he is 'to the point' and doesn't waste time, but also respects the growth process and the spiritual and family side of life.

As a teacher Mark holds the classes attention very well and helps expand our understanding of how the GMAT tests our knowledge by linking the teachings to work-life examples. Marks use of language and buzz words really helps drive home the lessons to make sure you remember what you learn. I can still remember his catch-phrases and advice for the GMAT even after taking the test because of his presentation skills and connection with the students.

My verbal jumped 7 points to break the 40 point barrier. I solely attribute this to Mark's teachings and explanation that pattern recognition and quantitative skills are extremely useful in the verbal section if you learn how to use them. I am an engineer by training and was able to learn how to use my quantitative skills to beat the GMAT verbal section.
