Veritas Prep is an amazing GMAT prep experience. It is evident that the organization gave careful thought to the structure of their student experience, from the sales experience, to the comprehensive online student portal, to the creative (and sometimes appropriately wacky) teachers. During the sales experience, I spoke with someone over the phone and he quickly answered all of my questions and then some. He also followed up diligently and concierged me into the experience (I purchased the package about two or three weeks before the course started and the sales associate helped me get up and running during that lead up time).

Once you enroll, Veritas Prep gives you access to an online student portal that houses a study plan, practice tests, practice problems, videos and recordings of your class. I found this one-stop shop very intuitive and helpful to help organize my efforts (because we all know that GMAT studying can go in multiple different directions). They also sent me 12 dense lesson books; spend the time to read through them, they have some good content in there. I really liked the philosophy of Veritas Prep (focus on strategy and reasoning, rather than content memorization). A previous course that I took did not touch on strategy at all and I think that's what prevented me from realizing my fullest potential.

I took an online live class with a teacher by the name of Ethan Todras-Whitehill. He is a little bit out there, but at the same time, you almost need someone like that to help bring the content to life, engrain it in your mind so come test day you remember certain techniques. The classroom environment he created was extremely collaborative (I've never taken an online course before, so I was pretty impressed with the technology as well). Ethan also went 'off-book' at points, supplementing the prescribed Veritas Prep material with his own creative slides to help further enforce the strategy and content. Ethan also focuses more on strategy and helps you understand why strategy is so important on the GMAT. At first I didn't trust some of the strategies, but once I gave them a try, I became a believer....THEY WORK! It's evident that Ethan has invested additional time to facilitate a robust learning experience, which I can say was effective at engaging me and keeping me coming back for more.

All in all, i'm in believer in Veritas Prep and would highly recommend the course.

I really enjoyed attending my GMAT online course. I signed up for the 7am-10am PST Saturday and Sunday's section with Ethan since it was the only class time that fit with my schedule. I was a bit hesitant attending a online course because I tend to get distracted but the online class is so interactive that I was focused the entire time. Ethan is the best instructor I've ever had! If I had more professors like him during my college years I would've attended every single one of my classes. He is very engaging and makes the most boring and difficult topics such as data sufficiency and sentence correction easy and painless. The handouts he provides are a huge timesaver. Overall after taking this course and doing all the homework and practice questions that come along with the course I increased my score over 100 points. Thanks Ethan!

I took the Veritas Prep Full Live Online course with Ethan Todras-Whitehill and thought it was excellent! The instructor was entertaining, interactive, and effective. Him and Chris Speck, who assisted, were always available to exchange emails regarding study plans and testing tips. I looked forward to classes and felt really prepared on the basics of content and test strategy based on class material. I only minimally felt like I needed to go back through the book to review lessons in depth and spent the rest of my time focusing on homework and practice questions. Because I had a strong verbal score to start off, I almost exclusively relied on Ethan's strategies for the verbal section and didn't study much outside of that. If you are the type of student who enjoys the structure of a course and benefits from the pacing and organization of it, I would highly recommend this class. If you're effective at independent study, the course is pretty pricey. Personally, I decided to take the course rather than study independently because I wanted to avoid retaking the exam and on that end I'm pretty happy I did!

After 1,5 years of learning math at the university, one year of after work/school help with math, and many failures, I thought it was time for a change. I decided to join a GMAT prep course.

I came upon the Veritas Prep course and decided to contact them. From the moment you send an email to the Veritas Prep center, you see what the Veritas Prep course is made of. The people are helpful, fast in their response and very friendly! After my story and their recommendations, I decided to follow the course given by Chris Kane.

Chris Kane is an amazing teacher! Very professional and very helpful. His dedication to every student is amazing and he is always available for any questions. Even when the classes were over, he still helped the students out very well. I showed him my GMAT score I got after finishing the class, and he gave me some great tips on how I could improve myself for the next time. So I'm still studying, but I'm sure I'll do better than the last exam!

Even though I did not score extremely high, I scored a 330 before the classes, and improved it by 200 points on my first try after the classes!, I still believe the Veritas Prep course has improved my critical thinking and way of analyzing texts, a lot!

If you're considering a GMAT prep course, I highly recommend the Veritas Prep course, and especially the live classes hosted by Chris Kane!

I took the online course with Ethan Todras-Whitehill. His personality was fantastic and I NEVER felt bored in the class, and that was after working a full day and taking the evening class.

It was a good use of my time, but I would strongly recommend taking a refresher course before attending the live online course. I was totally new to the GMAT when I took the live online course, so I was in the dark for a bit. Also, you get access to the recorded courses once you're signed up if you want a different teacher to go over the same lessons, so having a couple of different perspectives was nice. Overall, my score went up about 70 points from taking the course, but I would attribute that to a ridiculous study schedule more than to the instructional period. Keep in mind too, that you have access to the recorded live sessions for a few months and you can sign up for an additional live online course at no extra charge after you finish your original period of instruction.

Overall, I would recommend this course to anyone, but with one caveat: don't expect to go to the class and understand the material. The money is made in the study time, the course sessions are great for getting up to speed, but the Veritas study and prep material is where the real meat and potatoes is.

I took the Veritas Live Online course and could not have been happier. The format as well as the instructor, Ethan Todras-Whitehill, were both great. For anyone who works full time, the live online class is a perfect way to learn from the comfort of your own home after a long day at the office. The structure of the course helps provide a blueprint for how to attack a very daunting test. Ethan really helped to make learning these dreadful subjects fun and i would highly recommend taking a class with him. He was happy to answer any questions and you could sense his interest in how you were doing was genuine. Additionally, the online practice tests which Veritas provides were great in preparing to take the real thing. I ended up with a 720, which was around 100 points higher than before i took the course.

Ravi´s way of teaching is really impressive. He covers so much information in so little time, and somehow he manages to keep the class going fast while being so interesting. Time flies with Ravi. The student really needs to study in order to take advantage of Ravi´s classes, cause as I said before, the classes are fast and dense! Ravi is suited for all students that are really taking the GMAT seriously and really want to perform well. 99% or bust!
I started with Practice Tests of 590 and after the course ended, and on my second official attempt, I scored a 720. At least I owe half of that to Ravi

I highly recommend Ethan's online course through Veritas Prep for anyone looking to improve their GMAT score. He has a very solid understanding of all the verbal and quant properties and most importantly is very good communicating them. I have had many professors with lots of knowledge, but who lack the teaching skills to effectively pass on their wealth of information. I was very pleased with how well Ethan was able to convey even the more complicated GMAT strategies. I honestly enjoyed the classes and saw a large improvement in more score. All of the resources provided by Veritas are very helpful as well.

I highly recommend Ethan Todras-Whitehill and Chris Speck (TA)'s online GMAT Prep course with Veritas. I attended the 6-week class a few months ago and achieved a lot of improvement within a short period of time. I took the GMAT again three weeks after having completed the course and finally reached my score goal that I would not have other been able to achieve studying by myself. They are both fun, dedicated and easy to work with. The 6-week format is also an effective way to hold myself accountable for the prep and really spend time focusing on getting the required homework done. I purchased some Manhattan materials prior to signing up for the course Veritas for self-study, but now looking back I really wish I could have done that earlier!

BLUF: I would recommend this instruction to anyone looking to increase their GMAT score, but cannot attend live classroom instruction.

The live online instruction was excellent in its quality of content. For someone like myself who was overseas and located in a place where classroom instruction was not possible, it was a great choice. However, the internet connection I had was not the greatest and therefore I experienced consistent lags in the streaming rate. This resulted in myself missing some of the finer teaching points that Ethan (my instructor) was attempting to communicate. This would occur for the duration of the 3 hour class, and it left me very frustrated at times. The recordings had the same issues. So, if your internet connection speed is average to below average, I would think twice about spending over $1500 on this option. The Veritas Prep Books are excellent themselves as standalone teaching guides.

Instructor Review: Ethan was excellent. His personal tips, tricks, and methods that he adds to the standard Veritas instruction were instrumental in my 70 point increase. Ethan gets the highest recommendation possible, along with his TA Chris. Prospective students should attempt to get into Ethan's class as much as possible.
