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.

This review is for: Veritas Prep Private Tutoring
Location: Vienna, VA USA
Taught by: Anthony Ritz

I highly, highly recommend Anthony as a tutor for your GMAT studies. I will explain why:

I started off my GMAT studies in September 2013. I took a six week course and practiced myself an additional two weeks, ending up with a 600. At that point, being a bit discouraged yet also realizing I need more than one year of work experience before my MBA, I paused my studies and waited until September 2015 to start up again.

I decided to self study again, which took me about four months, and ended up with a 650. I had one month to study again until I had to retake the exam for third time. That was when I contacted Anthony to come tutor me.

Anthony is not like other tutors that I've had in the past; he really knows how to challenge you to figure out the problems on your own before he steps in to help. When he does help, he doesn't just show you the problem and tell you to repeat those steps on the rest of the problems. He usually starts off by asking you if you have heard of a certain theorem or proof or something of that nature that is related to this specific problem. When he explains it to you, a million light bulbs will go off in your head. From that point on you will have much less difficulty tackling that type of problem. It was mind blowing for me that with one quick explanation he was able to show me how to do a specific type of problem at any difficulty level, even 700 and above.

He showed me that the quantitative section really is not that hard when you realize that all the questions are quite similar but are the same question just written down differently. Because of his tutoring, I was able to raise my quant score from a 38 to a 50 (in practice exams; got 49 on my final GMAT official exam).

Similarly on the verbal section, he helped me raise my score from a 27 to a 41. This allowed me to get an overall score of 740, way better than the 650 I was able to achieve via self studying. I attribute 95% of my score increase to the lessons that Anthony taught me. Without him, I'm not sure I would've been able to break the 700 barrier. The money I spent to tutor with him was one of the best spent dollars for my future, bar none.

Thank you Anthony for all your help. I really owe you one.

Taught by: Chris Speck

I am a non native speaker and I really struggling in Verbal. After a 10 hours course with Chris, I could change the way I think about the CR and RC question.With in a period of 3 months I could see a better score in the Mock Test and finally a 20 points push in my over GMAT Score. Chris is really supportive and he would have spend 12-13 hrs for the 10hrs course and was always behind me when ever I needed his support. He is patient and he provides the honest and right feedback so that you can actually work on your weakness and improve on it. The classes were on Skype and he was flexible enough to accommodate my timings and questions. I would definitely recommend him.

This review is for: Veritas Prep Full Course
Location: Houston, TX USA
Taught by: Mark Robinson

Piling on to what others have stated, the Veritas material is great, and instructor Mark Alan Robinson makes this course 5-star worthy! I took the March-April 2016 Houston Full Course and had strong results. Mark keeps the course interesting and teaches strategies that enable success on the GMAT.

In addition to the classroom sessions, there are a wealth of online materials available, including pre-recorded classroom lectures, problems, practice tests, etc. You can do the entire course in the online format, but Mark helps to lighten things up and keeps his students engaged. I had to miss a few classes while out of town on business, but I was able to stay on track by going through the online lectures. The online practice tests are very good and will greatly assist in preparation for the GMAT.

Early in the course, Mark made the recommendation that we sign up to take the exam within a week or two of finishing the course. I did so hesitantly, thinking that I could reschedule up until only a few days before the exam. Of course, I was mistake, so by the time I got around to trying to reschedule, would have been out the whole GMAT fee. I reluctantly went to take the test, figuring that I would need to retake. But upon finishing the test, I was very relieved to have beaten my original target score of 700 (with plenty of room to spare!) Thanks Mark and Veritas!

Taught by: Laura Cook

I recently completed a private tutoring package with Laura Cook and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their score in a short amount of time, and particularly to those who are looking to score in the 700+ range. Laura was very accommodating of my busy work schedule and was often able to meet over Skype on short notice. She also had a number of strategies and resources to help get me above the 700 threshold that I would not have been exposed to via a class or self-studying. On top of all that, Laura was very nice and easy person to work with so I would absolutely recommend her to anyone that is thinking about using Veritas for private tutoring. threshold that I would not have been exposed to via a class or self-studying.

I took the Veritas class in hopes that it would help me break 700 on the gmat. The class did not disappoint.

In terms of content, Veritas offers a large bank of practice questions, on demand videos, skillbuilders, homework problems, and CAT's. During my test prep, I relied heavily on the tools that Veritas provided. I found the quant questions often more challenging than the official questions, and the added difficulty really helped me learn to focus, pay attention to detail, and avoid rookie mistakes.

What truly set the class apart was not the content, but the instructor. Ravi is an outstanding teacher who takes the time to invest in his students. He is straightforward and focuses on the strategy behind the test. I found his lessons very insightful and his mantra of "99% or bust" helped focus and drive me towards my goal. I highly recommend taking the class with Ravi!

I took the Veritas Live Online Course and it was absolutely fantastic. Even being in the UK, it felt like I was a part of the classroom environment -- the interaction with other students, the TA (Ron!) and Ravi was excellent. The curriculum and material is intense but approachable and really helped prepare for the exam itself.

That being said, the real differentiator for me is the instructor, Ravi. I can honestly say he is one of the best teachers I have ever had, hands down. His non-stop enthusiasm, straight-shooting feedback, and clear teaching style made this class thoroughly enjoyable and, more importantly, an extremely worthwhile use of time. I got myself into a jam on the Quant section on test day and it was Ravi's key takeaways ("look for the door", "narrow down the answer choices") that guided me back on track!

Overall, I would definitely recommend Veritas to anyone but if you're looking for "99th percentile or bust" you HAVE to take the course with Ravi!!

I had a great experience with Chris's Live Online GMAT Prep course. The curriculum was very comprehensive and included everything you need to know for the test. In addition, the in-class instruction was excellent. Chris covered ways to approach questions on different parts of the exam, commonly missed question types, and strategies to ace the most difficult questions. In addition, he made class both engaging and enjoyable even after a long day of work. The course helped me improve my score from a 690 before I started studying to a 770 on test day! I would recommend Chris’s course to anyone looking for effective GMAT Prep instruction.
