I took the Veritas Live Online Course with Ravi Sreerama and it was a fantastic experience! At first I was skeptical with how effective an online course could be, but all my doubts were put to rest once I had my first class. Ravi was a very engaged instructor who set the bar high for all of his students. He has impeccable knowledge of the GMAT and combines it with his entertaining method of teaching.

Veritas also does a great job of organizing the course material. They separate each lesson by course topic, and further divide each individual lesson with a pre-class skillbuilder, the lesson itself, and post-class homework. Once again, I recommend taking the course with Ravi Sreerama, especially if you have trouble breaking the 700 barrier!

I had a great experience with this course, Ravi made the course fun and I honestly looked forward to going to class (dorky, I know). Ravi is a reliable instructor who brings his all to every class and expects you to do the same for him.

Veritas' courses are well-structured and designed in a way that, assuming you put in the effort, allows you to learn more than you can on your own. I don't think I could've gotten my score without their help.

If you're looking for some GMAT help, Veritas and Ravi are definitely the way to go.

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 instructor Ravi and his assistant Megan created an amazing environment to learn and enjoy the class. I will always remember Ravi's laugh at the jokes. Ravi is intelligent and entertaining, exactly what you need with the GMAT. He engaged the class by connecting personally with each student and this gave the personal touch that I would have got in an in-person class. I chose 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. His engaging teaching style and genuine interest in his students' success make him an obvious choice. Furthermore, Ravi does a great job focusing on what students must know to be successful on the GMAT. He understands what the GMAT is about and expects a lot from you. Ravi is able to convey all of his knowledge and experience without wasting any time. He wants you to bring your A game to the table and follow his mantra "99% or BUST".

I would highly recommend the Veritas online course and Ravi as the instructor. Coming into the course, I expected Ravi to exceed my expectations and guess what, he did just that. I still have him in my mind yelling at me not to make the obvious mistakes and use my little brain the right way to score big on the GMAT.

Thank you Veritas Prep for the wonderful experience and introducing me to a great instructor like Ravi Sreerama. :)

I took an online Veritas course with Ravi and don’t think that I could have had a better teacher. Ravi’s style is very straightforward and blunt, but his direct style really keeps you focused on what matters on a given topic area or problem and helps you boil it all down to what matters. The class moves at a brisk pace over the 3 hours but it will never seem like a long time. Many times I found myself wanting to keep going at the end of class, even though you cover a lot of material in any given class. I would highly recommend him as a teacher – he’s smart, constructive and was a great person to have on my team throughout the process.

I was worried I would get bored with an online course but I was wrong. The online classes are action packed and filled with valuable insight. Ravi is the best at preparing you for battle. The part I really loved about his course is that he focuses on getting you to know exactly what you are doing as soon as you finish reading a question. Whether your weakness is Verbal or Quant, Ravi has your back. You will gain endless GMAT knowledge but you will also gain a new mindset that will help you tackle anything the right way. Ravi also focuses on having the right mindset. I highly recommend this course.

Overall, don't think the 20 point improvement to my score was worth the cost of the course. The scores on my practice tests were significantly higher than when I actually took the test, so not sure what was up with that... I did learn a few useful quant and verbal tricks that helped. David was a great instructor, however, I am not sure we "finished" a lesson. We usually have a few more practice problems (typically the more difficult ones) left at the end of the session. Sometimes we would spend a decent amount of time on a specific that only one or two students had, as opposed to have the assistant instructor handle the question on the side... Again, while my score improved, I am not sure the monetary cost of the course was worth it for me.

Taught by: Chris Kane

After reading many reviews online, I decided to go for Veritas Prep to help me with my GMAT preparation. I had already taken the GMAT once (5 years ago) and knew exactly where my strengths and weaknesses were and the type of course I was looking for. Veritas matched all the criteria - providing materials (including tons of exercises with detailed solutions and their own developed computer adaptative tests, and the chance to review all the lessons offline). I finally enrolled for an online course with Chris Kane - from November to December 2016.

The lessons were great. I had never tried an online course so I was slighlty afraid that I wouldn't have the chance to ask questions. I couldn't be more wrong. Chris created a very engaging environment and he really pushed people to participate through the group chat in a way that almost felt like a f2f class. Chris even gave out amazon vouchers for the students who participated the most :-). I also learnt a lot from the questions that other students asked. Chris shared many great tips/techniques on how to approach exercises and make the best out of our preparation - in a way that you don't necessarily get by reading a book. Having access to detailed solutions to exercises (with videos sometimes) also made all the difference in my offline preparation, helping me making sure I was taking the right approach to the exercises.

After a couple of months of prep I sat for the exam for a very disappointing grade. Chris made himself immediately available to review my score report and suggest a strategy to improve my preparation for the next attempt. Eventually I got my 720 score which was even beyond my expectations.

I'm sure I wouldn't have been able to achieve this score without Veritas & Chris classes, materials and overall support. I would highly recommend Veritas and Chris for anyone outhere looking to break the 700 barrier.

This review is for: Veritas Prep Full Course
Taught by: George Yates

This was the right course for me, it got me the score I was looking for. The leader was very helpful and the course was set up in a great way.

I thought the practice tests we're too easy in comparison with the actual test. I was scoring in the top 1% in practice tests, but wound up in the top 3-5% which is what I was shooting for anyways.

I supplemented this course with additional workbook problems from Manhattan. In comparing the two, I found that Veritas' approach is to build up your base knowledge of the gmat, while Manhattan was focused on pushing you to the upper tiers of scores.

If you are looking for a score of 720+ - check out Manhattan, but be aware that they assume that you have a very solid foundation before their offerings. However, Veritas was great at getting me my base knowledge and easily took me to a 700 score.

I completed VeritasPrep's Full Course Live Online with Chris Kane about 4 months ago. First and foremost, Chris is a fantastic teacher and helped me immensely in my preparations. A little background about me, I'm a Naval Aviator looking to transition out of the military next year and roll right into a MBA program. I graduated from the Naval Academy in 2009. I determined about a year ago that I wanted to transition out of the military but was pretty unsure with what I wanted to do. After finally weighing a lot of my options I decided to go down this MBA road.

Initially I purchased all of the GMAT Official Guide books and just started churning away at problems. I quickly realize I didn't know crap and wasn't making much progress... I hadn't been in school for almost 8 years and was horrified with how much I had forgotten. Everything from simple number properties to algebra to reading comprehension. I honestly started to doubt whether I would even be able to learn all of this information again and be able to score well on the GMAT. After talking to a couple of friends who were in the same boat I was recommended just to sign up for any prep program. I researched them and settled on Veritas Prep. Let's be clear though, this isn't a program where you can just go to the class in person or live and expect much improvement. That will help somewhat but it's a matter of taking what you're learning in each lesson and applying it to all of the homework problems to further cement the given topics. From there you can figure out where you're weak and adjust your studying prioritize to maximize your learning. Unfortunately I don't live near any in-class programs and elected for the Live Online. Overall I found the Live Online class to exactly what I needed. The overall syllabus will start with more of the basic concepts of each topic and transition to the advanced topics. Chris kept the classes very interactive and was able to portray all of the learning objectives clearly and concisely. I seriously only have praise for how Chris taught the class and especially the study plan he laid out after the completion of the test. Overall the course structure and work-load weren't terrible while working full-time in the Navy. I definitely wasn't able to initially keep up with all of the homework problems but that's completely okay with the structure of the class. Once the class is complete Chris provided a rough study plan that includes going back and completing all of the homework problems.
In conclusion, I highly recommend the VeritasPrep Live Online Class with Chris Kane. It was about a 6 month preparation process for me, primarily due to work taking up a lot of my time, but I went from a high 500 score on the practice test to getting a 710 on my GMAT on the first attempt. My quant score wasn't great and I may end up studying for another month with just heavily focusing on the quant-side of the house but am still very satisfied with everything overall.

Taught by: Aaron Pond

More than a year ago, I attended a live, in-person GMAT Prep course with Veritas Prep. I was interested in taking the GMAT, but I was finishing up school and realized that I frankly didn't have sufficient time to devote to preparing for the exam. I am so grateful for Veritas Prep's option to re-take a full course within one year. I decided to re-enroll in their full course a year later and this time I really applied myself.

Aaron Pond was the teacher for both courses. He is brilliant. He is a teacher by trade so not only does he know his stuff, he knows how to effectively teach it to students in a memorable way. The live online course was great. Veritas Prep uses Adobe Connect for their live online courses (don't worry if you haven't heard of it - it's easy to set up). Even though it's an online course and students are remote, Veritas Prep strongly encourages participation. To perform well on the GMAT, one absolutely must practice, practice, practice! Thus, in the lessons, students are encouraged to practice through friendly competitions, with points awarded based not only on who gives the most correct answers but also on how frequently one participates. I gave a lot of wrong answers during the course but I was able to learn from my mistakes. Aaron explained very early on that if you make a mistake, don't worry about it, but say to yourself "Congratulations, I didn't make that mistake on the GMAT!"

Veritas Prep teaches that while the questions on the GMAT are based on mathematics and English, the GMAT is actually testing you on your logic, reasoning, and leadership abilities. Aaron explained that the exam tries to "break your balance," just like a game of jiu jitsu. Thus, to combat the GMAT, students will learn about different techniques, hints, and tricks which Aaron refers to as "GMAT Jiu Jitsu." I'm convinced that these bites of logic made the greatest difference to my score. It's simple enough to learn the material for the GMAT but, as Aaron emphasized again and again, it's not testing you on your knowledge of triangles/tenses/graphs, it's testing you on your logic/reasoning/leadership skills. Once I began applying these ideas into my practice sessions, I began to see a dramatic score increase.

In addition to an excellent classroom/online experience, Veritas Prep has hundreds of practice questions and more than a handful of practice exams, offering hours and hours and hours of practice. The company's thorough review of each question allows students to identify their weakest areas and work on improvement. I strongly recommend Veritas Prep - and especially Aaron Pond - if you're looking to perform exceptionally on the GMAT.
