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.

One of the best things I learnt from Ravi's lessons is that its more about strategy than anything else.
GMAT test is not about testing math or verbal skills. I used to think it was and thus such a waste. What GMAT test really is that its more about better approach and strategy. I am so glad that I took this class.
This course has been by far the best investment and educating process... totally worth every penny!!!!
Highly recommend attending one of Ravi's online sessions to those who want to really crush it on test day.
All the best!

Surpassed all my expectations

After reviewing several GMAT preparation services y decided to go with Veritas Prep, and I can say that they surpassed in a very positive way all my expectations. David Newland, the instructor, knows the GMAT perfectly and is able to transmit this knowledge in a simple and fun way. I truly enjoyed David’s class as he showed a genuine desire to help us succeed on the GMAT. The online platform is spectacular with top of the line technology and as long as you have a decent internet connection you won’t miss the regular classes. Honestly, it is like taking a perfectly dynamic and collaborative class from a front row seat, minus all the hassles of traveling, etc. The online site is excellent and has sufficient and organized material to keep you busy and on schedule. I highly recommend Veritas Prep for your GMAT preparation; I was so satisfied with the GMAT course that I decided to use them as admission consultants as well. I hope this review helps and good luck.

I was hesitant to take an online course. I was concerned about the effectiveness and the ability of the class to focus on individual student concerns. With that being said, Veritas Prep has MASTERED online teaching.

The platform is very unique. The teacher is live during the entire course time and there is a chat room with all the other students in it. There is a moderator in the chat room that you can type questions too and she works in conjunction with the teacher. The teacher can also see everything you're chatting and will even throw in comments and answer questions (he just says them out loud, instead of typing them.) It really DOES feel like you're in a real time classroom.

On top of it, all classes, including chats, are recorded and you are given access to them for 1 year. This is GREAT for someone like me! My course ran from 8 p.m. - 11 p.m. because I'm on the east coast and I work too early to stay up that late every class day. I would typically sit through the first two hours and then watch the last hour the next day. This was very helpful to me.

The pre-class quizzes made sure you did your prep work. The homework was for your benefits! They definitely provide as much structure as possible, for those who aren't as self motivated as others. Between the pre-class quizzes, the class, and the homework, you definitely have the tools to do well.

Onto my teacher, Ravi. Oh Ravi, I will always remember your laugh at our classes corny jokes. Ravi is intelligent and entertaining, exactly what you need with this type of material! He was able to answer questions in great detail, without stumbling or making up BS answers. He engaged the class by reading the chat room content while teaching (how does he do that?!) and had anecdotes and jokes for us to keep the class moving. I choose him after reading on the forums that he's the best, and I'm really glad I did. He is an excellent teacher and I felt comfortable asking him questions and getting honest feedback.

Thank you for such a great experience Veritas! I'm taking my GMAT soon and I'm excited to see the results.

Ravi Sreerama is an absolute rock star!!

Before taking Ravi's online Veritas Prep Live Online course, I was a volatile test taker and my scores reflected that. He changed how I approached questions and forced me to think logically rather than aimlessly stumble through equations till I came to a solution. He also gave me the confidence to use logic and not panic if I saw a question format that seemed foreign. I would highly recommend this course (and especially Ravi) to anyone looking to take the GMAT.

PS. For an online class is was really interactive (using instant msg) and fun!!

I was definitely cautious of an online prep course as I have never used something like it before. However, I signed up and boy was I impressed. The features and ease of use of the website was great, not to mention that you get to sit on your couch but still feel like you are in a class room. For those that are less likely to participate in a live class, like me, I definitely participated more and got more out of it because of the ability to chat directly with the professor or TA. Veritas provides all the books for supplemental study; furthermore, tons of tests and practice questions/answers/video answers, etc. Ravi was great. Super informative and friendly but will drive you to a better score with tough questions and answers. Definitely recommend Veritas and Ravi!

This review is for: Veritas Prep Full Course
Taught by: Jennifer Rich

The class was eye opening to what I need to do to prepare for the GMAT. Whether you think you know math or not, this class will help you not only with answering the questions, but how to approach the test.

Jennifer Rich was very knowledgeable in every subject. She was also a very good teacher that would expand our minds to think differently than we have for so many years. I was grateful to have her as a teacher since she was always making sure we all understood every question, and she took her time to explain the difficult ones with charts, graphs, timelines, and other methods you do not see in a regular classroom.

I would recommend this class to anyone who wants to do well on the GMAT. The money was well spent.

The class that I took with Ravi Sreerama as my teacher really did a great job in preparing me for the GMAT. There were plenty of great tips and pointers throughout the lesson that I am sure will help me at test time. The class was also well thought out, with an in depth look in 12 separate 3 hour sections. Although this may sound like it could be boring, Ravi managed to keep the class interesting and entertaining for everyone through engagement with the students. He also did a great job juggling answering questions along with keeping up the fast pace that we needed to maintain. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone looking to take the GMAT.

I took the live online course with Veritas and they helped me get through the parts where I was struggling with prior to getting help. What I valued the most was how the instructor (Ravi Sreerama) made our class fun and informative.

This guy knows his stuff and he makes the GMAT look easy, but he's also good with dumbing down the info. I definitely felt the course is worth the money and the help they provide is useful, ESPECIALLY if you are studying ALONE!!!

I highly recommend Ravi and Veritas as they have other resources available. Get help before you take the GMAT with people who are professionals at beating the GMAT....
