I bought the Veritas Prep Test series as a part of my preparation for GMAT. My experience has been really good but I would want to highlight the big boon and a few misses.
I enjoyed a lot the Veritas Prep. I saw a deal posted somewhere and felt the cost was worth a try.

The questions simulate very well the overall GMAT experience. In my opinion, the questions were less difficult than the Manhattan test, and all my scores on Veritas were 10 to 30 points higher then my final GMAT score.

The system is good, works as you would expect.
Positives:
- Unlike MGM, Veritas has moderate level Math questions, this actually helps you retain the level of confidence that you ll end up having in the actual test.
- The question bank is broader than other test platforms. This means that your scores don't get affected by non-availability of questions in the question bank, leading to you scoring extravagantly high.

Negatives:
the test interface is not the best in class. The answer descriptions are small and ambiguous at times. Having said these things, I believe they are not a deal breaker.

Veritas test have a good collection of questions, and it helps in predicting your current level of preparation. I have given 5 tests in Veritas and have constantly scored between 610 to 650 in them. The real thing gave me a score of 650. The tests seems to be a good gauge of one's ability (My ability currently is for 650 so can provide details for this level. I am not sure if the quality of the questions is good enough when one is hoping for 730+. Point to be noted is that I have maintained a constant score of 49, 50 and 51 in the Quant. For verbal my score fluctuates between 22 to 30). So one can definitely take this a good Gauge of Quant, Though for Verbal I am not qualified to comment yet. Will definitely do so once i exhaust the other two tests after I am done preparing for my second attempt. Nevertheless this package is having a good collection of questions for practice which comes free in the test bundle.
Overall it is a great deal to get the practice questions and 7 test all under 20$.

Pros:

Solid quant sections with above average difficulty. They range their questions in a different fashion from GMATClub or GMATPrep. For example, a typical 600-650 question could be labeled as a 550-600 or 500-550 question in veritas prep. This could pose a problem for people with low confidence. My advice is to ignore the scores or the question difficulty and use these tests to figure out weak areas

Cons: The verbal is atrocious. The RC and CR questions just don't feel right and often require more time than normal GMAT questions. SC, while not the same 'feel' as GMAT questions, does a good job of preparing you with various grammatical errors and situations. I did find a few questions that felt more ambiguous and I know I could make a solid argument for one answer over the correct one. Usually the GMAT just eliminates those questions so there is no headache but alas they are in the Veritas Prep tests.

First of all, I belong from India and also preparing for GMAT.

I purchased Veritas Mocks this year in 2017 after being advised from many of my friends who prepared for GMAT and scored well above at least 720..
Veritas also offers Question Bank along with its mocks which is also very helpful.
Veritas tests i.e. CAT are very good as compared to others..
Others like Manhattan is also very nice and comparable to Veritas.
Veritas mocks are little tougher than actual GMAT.

Finally i will like to recommend this test series to GMAT aspirants.

Veritas Mock CAT's are Very Good.

Veritas tests are awesome. They offer thousands of realistic questions that have been validated using Item Response Theory and a powerful computer adaptive testing algorithm that closely matches that of the real exam. I have attempted real gmat exam and i can see that their quant section is very much similar to real exam. Not too tough but tricky. Their verbal section is also good especially Cr and Rc. I will highly recommend these tests. try at least one mock each week and revise mistakes. If you are scoring 750 then it is most likely that your real exam score will range from 710 to 770. I have tried other tests too, but i found these very helpful

I got a decent deal to buy 7 CATs for 10$.
However, the experience has been really disappointing.
Room for improvement: Tests lack consistency and a sound algorithm to calculate scores.
The interface is very different from GMAT.
The interface helps build a sense of familiarity with the test. Kaplan and GMAT Club have done a good job on this front.

Positive aspects: The blessing in disguise could that it prepares you for the situations where you could be caught off-guard, your timing strategies are not working. One will have to adapt to the situation in those cases.

A lot of work to be done to make scoring better and more accurate.

I bought the Veritas Prep Test series as a part of my preparation for GMAT. My experience has been really good but I would want to highlight the big plusses and a few misses.
On the positive side, the post-test analysis of the GMAT CAT provided by Veritas is really helpful. It highlights your areas of strengths and weaknesses and helps you focus on the right things during your preparation.
The Veritas test also gives the average time taken by other test takers per question which helps you gauge how efficient your technique is. I would highly recommend taking these mocks at regular intervals during your preparation.
I found the level of difficulty as being a little tougher than the real test (especially Verbal) and also, the Veritas tests punish or reward you faster than the real GMAT. You are sure to get a 750-800 level question once you answer the first 4 questions right in Veritas which is not true in the real GMAT.
I also felt that the Quant section in the tests is not evenly distributed across topics. You will get a good practice and mix of topics only if you do all 7 tests (else, you might miss out on some topics).
Conclusion: Worth the money if you get it at a discounted price like I did :)

Finally, I saw a minor error in one of the questions and send an email reporting it to the Veritas Prep team. They replied in the next day, which demonstrated care with their product.

The veritas tests are as close to the actual GMAT as possible. My scores were perfectly hinged around my actual score.

Positives:
- Unlike MGM, Veritas has moderate level Math questions, this actually helps you retain the level of confidence that you ll end up having in the actual test.
- The question bank is broader than other test platforms. This means that your scores don't get affected by non-availability of questions in the question bank, leading to you scoring extravagantly high.

Negatives:

I bought the set of 7 CAT tests for $19 during one of the discount periods.

Positive:
The Quant section is very similar to the actual GMAT. The level of difficulty and scoring algorithm is about as close as you can get to the real thing. My actual score is 1 point higher than my VP CAT Quant score.

Besides, the user interface and analytics were tremendously helpful when revising certain concepts and going through questions which I got wrong.

Negative:
The verbal section seems to be harder than the one on GMAT Prep and the actual exam. My scores on VP CAT verbals were about 4-7 points off from my GMAT Prep scores and my actual score.

Because of this huge discrepancy in the scoring for the verbal section, my overall scores were about 60-70 points off from my actual score.

Overall, I would suggest that one buys these tests during the discount periods. Then, one could use it as a good Quant practice, keeping in mind that the verbal section is skewed which can significantly distort ones overall score.
