Pleasant Experience; Carefully Crafted Q&A, but not Flawless

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by score report [?]

I tried the free practice test and found that Veritas Prep's version of GMAT mock exam was delicately written to conform with the "logic" behind the real test. I had a pleasant test experience; the platform was easy to navigate and the solutions to each question showed a detail analysis of all answer choices.

As good representatives of GMAT questions were scarce, I decided to purchase a package that contained 6 additional mock exams and took 4 of them. After those tests, I would say that although the questions were great to practice with, each mock had its own concentration that didn't reflect the reality; for example, there could be a string of difficult questions or a particular area might be overrepresented.

However, as we can only find the next best GMAT questions from a small number of prep providers, Veritas Prep's ones are as good as they get.

Harder than GMAT Prep & great verbal explanations...

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by score report [?]

I got my hands on the Veritas prep CATs when I purchased the premium membership on the GMAT Club. The CATs come along with a question bank (which is very useful) for selective practice. The explanations are very succinct and specially verbal explanations are helpful.

In terms of difficulty, I found the CATs to be a bit on the tougher side. The Quant questions are very hard with some requiring multiple concepts and traps. Usually on the GMAT prep the quant questions have one or at most two traps. In terms of scoring I felt the scores to be inflated (in terms of number of wrong questions - however, given that all the questions are on the tougher side, the inflated scoring must be trying to account for it)

All in all, really good set of questions. The question bank is super useful & CATs are tougher-than-the-GMAT , so if you are one of those people who believe in preparing for the worst so that the real thing becomes a breeze - these tests are for you!

Veritas Prep Tests

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by post count [?]

I bought 7 veritas prep CATs. The quality of the CATs is very good.
The difficulty of the CATs keeps on increasing as you go on completing each test. I found verbal section of tests to really tough. I think the kind of question you would get on test day will be similar to the questions that are there in veritas prep CATs. Overall one should buy these test to practice AWA and Integrated Reasoning in timed environment and to replicate test conditions. Integrated reasoning question are also quite interesting and tough in the CATs. So they are quite similar to the official tests.

Not upto the mark

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by post count [?]

I had purchased the pack of 6 GMAT practice tests from Veritas for my preparation. I found the tests to be extremely inconsistent and did not have a balanced mix of questions in each CAT. Some tests were very easy and some were too difficult. The scoring too seemed to be off by a long way. I was consistently scoring in the 730-760 range in manhattan and official test whereas Veritas scored me 610-640 across all the tests.

Nevertheless, I would request Veritas to balance out the question difficulty and topic wise - which would make these tests very good from a time management perspective.

It may not give true picture

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by score report [?]

I had heard a lot about the Veritas GMAT CATS and decided to buy it. I got 6 CATs. When I gave my 1st CAT, I didn’t score that well in it. I got a little disheartened. Then I saw at a few places that Veritas CATs are on a tougher side. I geared up and gave it 5 more CATs. Eventually my score increased but the things that I noticed in the CATs were that the difficulty level of the questions were not even. The later CATs had tougher questions rather than a balanced set and despite attempting a lot of incorrect ones, my score improved. This doesn’t show the true picture of your practice and preparation. The questions were good and the solutions were very well explained.

Veritas Prep TEST series

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by membership [?]

1. I recently bought the Veritas test series consisting of 7 tests/mocks.
2. The free question bank that Veritas provides you with is really helpful, with good quality Verbal Ability questions.
3. I find the Verbal part of Veritas to be more challenging with a range of diverse question set.
4. But its somehow difficult to score high on these mocks. I could only touch 680-700, as compared to getting scores in the range of 710-730 on official gmat prep mocks.
5. They run promotional offers in between where you can buy the same test set that is priced at $49 for as low as $15. I did the same.

Solid

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by school email address [?]

I purchased these tests at a promotional rate of $15. These test have been very consistent so far. I have scored 660, 690, and 700 respectively. One complaint is that sometimes a certain test will seem to emphasize a certain topic such as probability or integer properties. Both the verbal and the quantitative sections have well constructed questions. My other complaint is that the question difficulty will ramp up very fast. If you get the first two to three questions right, you are sure to get a 700-750 level question. This is true for verbal and quantitative sections. Overall I am pleased with my purchase, especially with promotional rate, and recommend these to other people who want high quality unofficial tests.

They are not Great!

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by score report [?]

Probably the next best non-official CATs after MGMATs. Honestly, with 6 GMAT Preps and 6MGMATs, you don't need any other CATS. Those are more than sufficient for any score.
I took the Veritas CATs, but didn't them very good. The quality of the questions are not that great! Plus the Quant scoring algorithm, in particular would give you a HIGH score. In general I think 6 GMAT Prep, MGMATs and GMAT Club Tests are more than sufficient for practice. Use Veritas only if you want to build stamina or if you run out of official and MGMAT CATs , but don't rely on the scores you get on these.

2nd Best Mocks

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by score report [?]

I purchased these mock tests because my friend recommended Veritas. My experience with them has been good.
Though, the quant section does not mimic the real GMAT and often gives erratic results. The verbal section is score is very close. I gave a veritas prep mock a week before my real GMAT and score within +-1 range of the Veritas test Verbal score. The timing split per section really helps to devise a nice plan for your D-Day.

I'd say that Veritas Tests are next best to the Official GMATPrep Exams.

Recommended if you want to craft a plan to skip questions and analyse where you spending the most time.

Hello all. I used Veritas CAT for GMAT. I found them very useful in simulating test environment. Veritas CAT's SC and RC are especially very good. Quants on other hand is on a little higher side than GMAT quants , helping us to score a good score in GMAT official exam in quants. Veritas CAT's algorithm for scoring is also very accurate and we can say its very strict -> if you do consecutive 3 wrong - you will be highly penalised. Similarly, if you do a low level ques wrong for eg 450 level ques wrong -> forget about getting a good score in Veritas CAT -> This means -> scoring system is very tight and top notch -> You cant afford doing silly mistakes in easy ques and repetitive wrong questions.
Overall -> i would like to recommend Veritas CAT

I scored Q49 IR 5 AWA 4.5 and V 19 ( v19 came due to some bad experience and circumstances -> i was hoping for 700+) anyways -> IF you can score above 680 in VERITAS CAT -> feel relaxed to get 700+ in official exam.
