I am starting Veritas Gmat Prep course on 5/5. Is there any suggestions on what to do before the 5/5 first day of class?

Take a practice test from mba.com to get a feel for the interface, etc.

You can also casually practice questions here: http://www.gmatpill.com/gmat-practice-test/

The best place to start would be to get a feel for the different categories of questions that the GMAT tests. Go ahead and buy the Official Guide to GMAT 13th Edition, unless they hand you the book as part of the course. Review the first 10 or so questions from each category(Problem Solving, Data Sufficiency, Sentence Correction, etc.), and look at the explanations as well. This will help you get a sense of the structure of the exam and make it easier for you to get more out of the class. And certainly you could also brush up on your foundations, for example on math you could go through the math review that the test writers have in the official guide. In general on the math, most students face the most difficulty with data sufficiency, because it is unique to the GMAT and takes time to get used to, and that would be another area worth spending some time on.

Cheers,
Dabral

Great to hear that you'll be working with us, FIU! And it's also great that you have some time to ramp up ahead of time. Your book shipment and the initial information in your online account should list a lot of this, too, but I'd highly recommend that you begin with:

-Log in to your student account and click on the "Problem Sets" tab; there you'll be able to download e-book copies of all the books to get started even if your hard-copy books are in transit.

-Click on "Lessons On Demand" and you'll see that we have "Skillbuilder" videos to complement the Skillbuilder (optional) pre-class work.

-I highly, highly recommend that you at least browse the Skillbuilder lessons for Arithmetic, Algebra, Sentence Correction, and Geometry. Much of this content will be review for you, but since most students come in with at least a few rusty areas, these lessons and their accompanying drills are extremely helpful in getting back that muscle memory with fundamental content so that you're better able to grasp bigger-picture concepts and strategies when you're in the classroom with an instructor. You don't have to complete all of these lessons before the course starts, but if you have time it's a great way to kick-start your studies and be as prepared as possible to get maximum value out of the classroom work.

-In the "Homework Help" tab of your student account you'll see information about accessing our Live Online Office Hours service. I'd drop in on one of those just to check it out and introduce yourself to the team; two hours each day we offer those sessions for you to ask homework questions and solicit advice from instructors.

I hope that helps - we're excited to see you in class early next month!
