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 the Veritas Prep Full Course Live Online, and was very satisfied with my experience. Having already taken the course once previously (classroom), I wanted to take another course as a 'refresher' before my second GMAT attempt (coming up in a couple weeks). Veritas Prep customer service made it very easy and allowed me to take the course again, for free, as part of the package deal. I chose the live online format so that I could have more flexibility and study from the comfort of my own home. The instructor, Ethan, was very knowledgeable, friendly and engaging and made each class very interactive and fun. The three hours flew by and we (students) also received recordings of each session via email in case we missed any, which was extremely helpful. I was very happy with all the resources Veritas Prep provided online, apart from the 12 books. I have been utilizing everything for prep, from the skillbuilder exercises, to course on-demand videos for every section of the GMAT, to the study guide....and of course, the practice tests. I am hoping that I am better prepared, this time around! I highly recommend this course to everyone.

I took my first GMAT in April and scored in the 50th percentile. Immediately after exiting the test center I called my parents and told them, "This score suggests that I'm average. I am not average. I am retaking the test." I'd studied on my own for four months up to that point and it clearly wasn't good enough, so I started looking around for courses I could take on the weekends. I live about three hours from the closest large city, so I knew I would have some difficulties finding classes. On top of that, I work ~50-60HRS/week and had just started a new relationship. Basically, I had zero free time. Reading the reviews, Veritas Prep was significantly higher rated than just about any other prep course--why wouldn't you want to learn from the best of the best? Granted, you'll pay a small fortune for it, but sometimes you have to pay money to make money. Looking through the available courses, I realized I was doomed to take an online class. I am easily distracted by the Internet and have always preferred small classes where you can get to know the professor, but this was the only option I had and I sure as heck wasn't going to pass up a chance to improve my score and get into the program of my dreams. Luckily, the first day of class put me at ease. Ravi Sreerama is an absolute riot to learn from. Combine a military father with an outdated fraternity paddle and you've got Ravi. He's sitting on your shoulder reminding you, "I don't need you to love this answer. Just like it more than the others," and shaming you for not catching the trick. You will never truly understand shame until you answer a question incorrectly and see his name pop up on your chat bar. Not to mention, I had a stellar group of classmates who I've kept in touch with since the course. I did have to learn about diligence and not creating distractions for myself, but turns out that was a great experience. I've already recommended several friends to Veritas Prep.

Ravi was a fantastic teacher. He brought a great sense of humor to all of our classes, and simultaneously held my class to a high level of rigor in our work. This course was my first experience with an online class, and Ravi made me feel not only that people from all around the world were part of a shared experience but also that I could not hide behind my keyboard. I showed up to class prepared every day, and as a result, showed up prepared on test day. I would highly recommend taking Ravi's course, and the veritas system, if you are interested in being pushed to meet your full potential.

I chose Veritas based on other positive reviews, and particularly chose Ethan as an instructor because I read that he is very engaging and entertaining as a teacher. He has a strong connection to the material and is an excellent instructor on the fundamentals/logical thinking required to get a high GMAT score. Through a unique mix of pop-culture references and creative interpretations of math/writing principles, Ethan really emphasizes the key areas to focus your studies. His guidance on how logic plays a crucial role in test taking strategy really helped boost my confidence. I recommend that students definitely log in and attend his classes live.

Ravi truly changed the way that I think about the GMAT exam. This guy really knows his stuff and accordingly he will direct your thinking along a path to make the exam considerably less daunting and towards the score that you need.

I used to shiver at the thought of the GMAT, an exam that I postponed for over 3 years just because I deemed it to be too difficult. After hesitantly wising-up, I came across Ravi and decided to join his online classes. Boy was I glad to have done so! Ravi managed to show me exactly what the GMAT was testing, by aptly breaking down the sections and expanding upon the extent of what the GMAT actually examines. Whilst we would go through a number of questions to build a foundation, Ravi ensured that his students truly 'think like the testmaker' and go well beyond the core GMAT content. Ravi showed me exactly how one should go about studying for the GMAT, and that was exactly what the doctor ordered! He emphasised heavily on reflection and made sure that I learnt from all of my mistakes. He's a tough tutor but righteously so - the GMAT is not a forgiving exam! Accordingly, I made sure to always be on target and always give my best shot! Despite the vast number of students he teaches at any one time, Ravi made sure to give me one-on-one attention during and out of class. He has been an absolute rock during the difficult times and I owe it to him for all the success.

It is safe to say that I no longer fear the GMAT as I am now able to see through its 'trickery', because Ravi manages to show his students the pattern of questions that come up in the exam. As a result, Ravi opened my eyes not only to the GMAT itself, but to the way I approached learning and studying as a whole. These lessons will certainly echo well into the future, particularly when I start at B-school. Such teaching is one-in-a-million and I'm truly blessed to have been taught by Ravi Sreerama - a 5-star GMAT tutor!

The Veritas Prep course was fantastic. I have been out of college for awhile and was looking for a live online course that could help prepare me for the GMAT exam. The Veritas Prep course was perfect and was just what I was looking for. My instructor Ravi Sreerama was very engaging and provided plenty of helpful tips for beating the GMAT! The format this course was delivered in was also excellent. The student portal helps you to keep track of homework assignments, your practice test scores, and so much more. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone who is looking to beat the GMAT and increase their scores.

Absolutely fantastic course that left me incredibly prepared for the GMAT. The Veritas Prep method not only gives you handy tricks for how to handle tricky questions on the GMAT, but helps you to understand how and why the questions are written, making it easier to logically get to the answers you need.

The course came with 12 books, each focused on a different area of the GMAT, practice problems and strategies for how to tackle them.

The online format works incredibly well, allowing for interaction with the teacher and other students, plus an incredibly attentive TA.

Ethan himself was INCREDIBLE. He used cultural references and humor (and at one point, even costumes!) to explain complex concepts, making the class highly enjoyable and interactive. He also gave me invaluable strategies for the test from easy to remember math "tricks" to more all-encompassing strategies for tackling data sufficiency and creative reasoning problems, many from his own "E-files" in addition to the Veritas Prep materials. He also dedicated an entire class to pacing strategies, which were most helpful on the day of the test!

I highly recommend VP to anyone preparing for the GMAT!!

I took the GMAT twice using Magoosh to prepare. Each time I scored a 700. I knew I could do better, but was reluctant to shell out the money for a class. I finally took the plunge and signed up for a Veritas class with Ravi, based largely on the stellar reviews here.

He is an incredible instructor. You can tell he knows his stuff and actually wants his students to improve. He provides you with many useful frameworks and, most memorably, sound bites/quotes which stick in your head on test day. After the course, I retook the GMAT and scored a 740, a 40 point improvement.

If you attend classes with Ravi and do the work, your GMAT will improve. It's as simple as that.

I recently finished the Veritas Prep Full time Online Live course, taught by Ethan Todras-Whitehill. I currently working towards a Bachelor of Science degree with Honours in Psychology, but I am thinking of switching career paths, and applying for an MBA. As a result, however, I have no business experience whatsoever, and therefore found myself younger than the rest of my classmates as well as weaker in a lot of areas. One of these areas is math, which is reflected heavily in my Quantitative score. Although, the program I am applying to only requires you to get a score above 550 in order to be considered. The GMAT, therefore, was more like a checkbox I needed to check, and with Veritas Prep I managed to do so, despite my handicaps. I found the instructor, Ethan, very engaging, and even funny at times, making the course much more enjoyable than I had expected. He went through the material effectively while also infusing his own questions into the course, creating a well-rounded and well executed live online course. I would highly recommend this course to anyone applying for the GMAT. If you do take the course, you'll know what I mean when I say that I'll never think of the Spanish Inquisition the same way again!
