This review is for: Veritas Prep On-Demand

I have used almost every available GMAT test prep material our there, and I can say, without a doubt, that VP stands above the rest.

Not only are their materials fantastic (and, in my opinion, the most similar to GMATPrep), but their employees and customer service are top notch. They genuinely care about your individual success and that made all the difference for me.

I sat for the GMAT 5 times, starting with a baseline score of 490. My last take was a 760 (99th percentile). I was not only admitted into my choice school, but I have been contacted by choice consulting firms.

If I had to describe VP (and not just their test prep, but their other services as well) in a word: Life-changing.

This was incredibly encouraging/inspiring. I'm curious over what period of time did you achieve that difference in score

Veritas Prep is an amazing GMAT prep experience. It is evident that the organization gave careful thought to the structure of their student experience, from the sales experience, to the comprehensive online student portal, to the creative (and sometimes appropriately wacky) teachers. During the sales experience, I spoke with someone over the phone and he quickly answered all of my questions and then some. He also followed up diligently and concierged me into the experience (I purchased the package about two or three weeks before the course started and the sales associate helped me get up and running during that lead up time).

Once you enroll, Veritas Prep gives you access to an online student portal that houses a study plan, practice tests, practice problems, videos and recordings of your class. I found this one-stop shop very intuitive and helpful to help organize my efforts (because we all know that GMAT studying can go in multiple different directions). They also sent me 12 dense lesson books; spend the time to read through them, they have some good content in there. I really liked the philosophy of Veritas Prep (focus on strategy and reasoning, rather than content memorization). A previous course that I took did not touch on strategy at all and I think that's what prevented me from realizing my fullest potential.

I took an online live class with a teacher by the name of Ethan Todras-Whitehill. He is a little bit out there, but at the same time, you almost need someone like that to help bring the content to life, engrain it in your mind so come test day you remember certain techniques. The classroom environment he created was extremely collaborative (I've never taken an online course before, so I was pretty impressed with the technology as well). Ethan also went 'off-book' at points, supplementing the prescribed Veritas Prep material with his own creative slides to help further enforce the strategy and content. Ethan also focuses more on strategy and helps you understand why strategy is so important on the GMAT. At first I didn't trust some of the strategies, but once I gave them a try, I became a believer....THEY WORK! It's evident that Ethan has invested additional time to facilitate a robust learning experience, which I can say was effective at engaging me and keeping me coming back for more.

All in all, i'm in believer in Veritas Prep and would highly recommend the course.

I took the GMAT prep course from Veritas Prep live online course, taught by Ravi Sreerama. I had my doubts initially about taking an online course. This was the first time I have ever done a course online and I wondered if I lacked the motivation. All of my fears were dispelled by the tenacity of the teacher. Ravi pushes every student to do their personal best. I did incredibly well for myself, right at the median for the low acceptance rate program I am looking at. However, in the true Ravi spirit, I will be re taking the exam at the beginning of April.

I purchased the in person tutoring, live online, and admissions essay consulting packages from Veritas. This review is only for the live online course.

First off, kudos to the Veritas Prep team for having great customer service. After taking a live online course and tutoring, I took the official GMAT and was not blown away by the score. They let me retake the live online course ~6months later free of charge, and was able to start a class two days after I called. The price tag on Veritas may be hefty, but you get what you pay for- lots of support and a quality education.

My live online retake was with Ravi in Feb. 2017 - and it couldn't have gone any better. His tough love teaching tactics worked well for me - I definitely heard his voice throughout my second official test warning me not to fall for the trap answer. He makes you paranoid, but in a good way :) Classes were fun and engaging, and he expects a lot out of everyone in the class - and will let you know if you're not measuring up. Sounds scary - its not - it really works. I went from a 560 to a 640, and my goal was 600. Ravi encourages everyone to hit 700 or bust, but I was elated to have my 640. If I do retake, it will for sure be with Ravi.

I would highly recommend Veritas Prep to anyone who is serious about nailing the GMAT, and would recommend Ravi as the best teacher of the live online course.

I set an ambitious goal (740+) before enrolling in the class and was able to achieve it thanks to Chris and the Veritas curriculum. Pre-course, I had relied on excel and a calculator for virtually all math since graduating college, so my skills were embarrassingly rusty. The Veritas skillbuilders helped get my basic skills back in order and the course did a great job of getting me prepared for the test. On verbal I was impressed at how Veritas makes you understand what actually matters for the test, rather than memorizing pages and pages of grammar rules. Chris is a pro's pro and I couldn't possibly recommend this course enough.

Like anyone else, before dropping some significant cash on a GMAT prep course, I read dozens if not hundreds of reviews on this site and others, hoping to land at the course best suited to help me score well into the 700s. One name that kept coming up was Ravi Sreerama at Veritas Prep. I signed up for his 12 week live-online format and crossed my fingers.

The course was more thorough than I could have imagined, breaking down each portion of the test into specific question types and equipping you with tools to most effectively approach each of these types with confidence on test day. What I got from this course that I did not anticipate going in, was an understanding of how the questions are constructed, and the ability to think like the test maker.

Ravi's teaching style wastes zero time. For each 3 hour class period he hits the ground running and makes sure you get the most out of each session. While I don't think a class went by without several laugh out loud moments, Ravi is notorious for his tough love approach to GMAT Prep. It will serve you well to bring your A-game each and every session or he will politely but directly ask you to logout, do your prep work, and watch the class recording at a later time. It is this gentle pressure that keeps you on your toes and pushes you to deliver your best work each class and also on test day.

The live-online format was surprisingly amazing. I felt that it allowed me to feel connected to my classmates without the added distractions and time sucks of a physical classroom. The chat function and Ravi's interactions with students made for many enjoyable exchanges.

If you are looking to cruise into business school with a 650, this course may not be for you. If you need that personalized attention that comes with one-on-one tutoring, you will not get a lot of that here, but if you are a good self starter who is ready to commit to excellence and push you score into the 700s, you won't find a better place to spend your money.

I highly, highly recommend Devin Jones as a tutor!
I had taken a Veritas Prep course a few years back when I first thought about taking the GMAT. I wasn't serious about my prep at the time, but it demonstrated to me that Veritas was a solid prep company and that their instructors were top notch. I fully committed to taking the GMAT this fall, and after scoring 650 on a practice test I decided to get a tutor to help increase my score.

From my first session with Devin, I knew he was going to help me crush the GMAT. It was obvious that he was incredibly smart, and he genuinely cared about me achieving the results I wanted. We had a TON of sessions, but he helped me to identify my problem areas and made sure I had great material to work with throughout the process. He even ordered new books for me when we ran out of material, and hand picked problems to make sure I was covering what I needed. I even had fun during the sessions because Devin is a cool guy too! We had some good laughs throughout. The structured study plan he provided helped me to stay motivated and improve steadily across all the subject areas. I was pretty strong in verbal going in, but to my surprise I improved a lot in verbal AND quant thanks to Devin.

On my first test day, I got in my head and wasted way too much time early on. I scored 670, but coming out of it I wasn't nearly as dismayed as I would have been. Working with Devin gave me the confidence to know I could do better. I shook it off and took the test two weeks later. I scored a 720! Overall, I increased my quant score by 5 points and verbal by 3. I couldn't have been happier. If you want to do well on the GMAT, then Devin Jones is definitely your guy!

I HIGHLY recommend Devin Jones

I HIGHLY recommend Devin Jones as a GMAT tutor. The below is my GMAT story and how Devin helped me beat the GMAT.

Quick Summary:
- I improved my GMAT score from a 590 (first actual test) to a 690
- If I take into account my first practice test, I improved my score from a 540 to a 690
- I had a Mathematics minor from Carnegie Mellon University, so I was fairly strong in Quant to begin with, but I improved my Verbal score from a 28 to a 38

My Story:
I have been studying for the GMAT on and off for the past two years. I took a Manhattan GMAT course 2 years ago and did not score as well on the test as I would have liked (score: 590). I was also not very impressed by the Manhattan GMAT course and I didn’t feel like the instructor was particularly helpful nor was he passionate about truly helping students conquer the test.

I took a year off from the GMAT due to frustration and feelings of failure. I started studying for the GMAT again this past September. My friend who also struggled with the GMAT recommended I try out Veritas Prep. She had a private tutor and she said that it made all the difference in the world. Looking back, I could not agree with her more!

I signed up for a 20-hour Private Tutor package with Veritas Prep. From my very first tutoring session, I knew that my tutor, Devin Jones, would help me beat the GMAT. Devin was always willing to meet around my schedule. He was never late and he always stayed past the scheduled duration of the tutoring session. Devin helped me improve both my Quant and Verbal score by creating a strategy/study plan that addressed both my strengths and weaknesses.

Beyond just providing tutoring for the content of that GMAT, Devin was my support and backbone throughout the 4-month process. He kept my emotions at bay and he helped me mentally prepare. He was even willing to walk me to my test center for my first scheduled test because he knew I was nervous. It’s the little things like that that really make all the difference in the world, especially for a stressful test like the GMAT.

Although I did not do as well as I would have liked on my test (score 640), Devin stuck with me and continued to help me prepare and tackle my weaknesses. He provided a continuous flow of study materials and created homework assignments for me each week, once again focusing on a strategy/study plan that addressed both my strengths and weaknesses. The structure of his assignments really helped me get through the weeks. I took the test two more times and unfortunately still did not do as well as I would have hoped (610; 630). However, Devin’s unwavering confidence in my ability to achieve my goal of a 680+ kept me going.

Finally, on my last attempt, I scored a 690!!!!! I was beyond ecstatic and I definitely could not have done it without Devin by my side every step of the way. Devin was the first person I reached out to after leaving the testing center and he was so happy for me. I could not have asked for a better tutor, helping me to improve my score 100 points! Devin is a truly amazing tutor and is incredibly passionate about helping others to success. I consider myself very lucky to have had Devin as my GMAT tutor.

Veritas approaches the GMAT like the test is a puzzle to solve. The live online class was very interactive. I felt compelled to participate and my instructor, Chris, kept everyone in our class engaged.

Veritas's class materials are plentiful and extremely useful. I preferred taking their practice tests over those from the official guide because Veritas's answer explanations are much easier to understand.

After the live online class was completed, I was able to email my instructor directly to ask for advice on strategies to prepare. About a week after the class, I took the exam and that was a little too soon after, but I was able to use that score as an assessment of where I needed to practice more and improve. After another few weeks, I was able to improve my score by another 50 points. The total score improvement from before taking the Veritas course was 70 points.

I would recommend this class to anyone looking to take the GMAT and improve their score.

This review is for: Veritas Prep Full Course
Location: Miami, FL USA
Taught by: Chester Rodeheaver

Chester was a great instructor. He made the concepts really simple and easy to understand and he always encouraged student participation. If we ever had any questions about a specific problem, he'd make sure we understood it before moving on. He also did a great job of giving us the inside scoop on applying to business schools and what to expect out of a business program which helped us tremendously in starting to think about how we could supplement our GMAT scores with a great application. Though I wish the course was a bit longer as not to cram so much material into six weeks, it was an enjoyable experience and I would highly recommend this course for anyone looking to take an in-person GMAT prep class in Miami.
