Course Veritas Prep In-Person Full Course

Instructor Nick Strauss

Location Seattle, WA USA

I think Veritas is the best test prep company out there. Both my sister and I have used Veritas and found it to be excellent.

The content itself from Veritas was on the money in terms of how close it was to the real GMAT. I took practice tests from Kaplan and Manhattan Prep and definitely found Veritas to be the most realistic (the other ones were unjustifiably more difficult and not designed in the same manner as the real tests). I appreciated the fact that Veritas had broken down both the Verbal and Math into distinct lessons and distinct workbooks. Each workbook is filled with a review of the content, tips & tricks, and lots of practice questions. My only grievance with the practice tests is that you can't retake/reset them. I'm unlikely to remember content from 4 months ago, so would like to re-use them.

I scored a 500 on my very first GMAT exam in July. Four months later when I gave the actual exam, I got a 660. I could've scored much higher and plan to retake the test using Veritas' materials for prep again.

As for the instructor teaching the full course I took - Nick Strauss was fantastic. He had great tips for how to tackle the GMAT and was both knowledgeable and patient with inquiries during class. He was also thorough in covering all content from the books. The classes were held at a convenient time in the evening in a conference room on the 22nd floor of a skyscraper in Seattle.
