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.

I studied for the GMAT on my own for about a year before taking it the first time. I didn't do as well as I had hoped so I signed up for private tutoring through Veritas. I was assigned Samhita Noone and we worked together virtually as I was in New York and she was in Atlanta. We met once or twice a week, every week for over three months. My verbal scores didn't need much work so we focused on the quant material. She suggested I do every math problem in the Veritas Books, which I thought was impossible, but ended up doing. Not only did we review material but most importantly, Samhita helped me with the "mental prep" part of GMAT studying. We discussed everything from test anxiety to create routines when I would take my practice tests. It was amazingly helpful to talk things out and I went into my second test feeling way better than I did the first time. My goal was to break 700 (all my practice tests had been in the 600-650 range) and with Samhita's help, I got a 710. I can't thank her enough for being a constant partner, coach and tutor throughout this process.

This review is for: Veritas Prep Immersion Course
Taught by: David Newland

I attended the immersion course by David Newland and must say that was the best decision I've made in 2016. I booked onto the immersion course by David Newland as it suited my timing and wanted to get some help with GMAT and I would say that I made a good call. The course was intense and fun at the same time.

David made sure everyone in the class was engaged as we were doing 7hrs study daily and it is very easy to lose focus. He made sure everyone was on track and was very approachable. He made sure that he addressed everybody's questions in the class and if he was running over time provided links to the explanations so that we don't miss out on important information/explanations.

His teaching skills are amazing, especially in the Verbal Section. Of course, him being the contributor to Vertias Prep GMAT study material and having been tutoring for 10+ years he is very knowledgeable in all the concepts and makes he passes on this information to his students.

All in all, I must admit he is a great tutor who helped me approach the GMAT in the right direction. I recommend him to anyone planning to take GMAT.

This review is for: Veritas Prep On-Demand

I took Veritas Prep on-demand course and found its material challenging. A lot of hardwork has been put in making this material and the hardwork can be seen while going through the material. Also their motto "Think like a test-maker" is inspiring. But I have been disappointing in case of doubt clarification sessions by Matt Douglas. He discouraged me a lot and constantly throwed me out of the sessions. It is sad that you do not get proper instructor support for your doubts to be clarified. Their Quant and verbal material is good except for SC which is not very satisfying. Brian and clara video sessions are really good. Tests and question bank are also extremely wonderful.

I took the Veritas Prep Full Live Online course with Ethan Todras-Whitehill and thought it was excellent! The instructor was entertaining, interactive, and effective. Him and Chris Speck, who assisted, were always available to exchange emails regarding study plans and testing tips. I looked forward to classes and felt really prepared on the basics of content and test strategy based on class material. I only minimally felt like I needed to go back through the book to review lessons in depth and spent the rest of my time focusing on homework and practice questions. Because I had a strong verbal score to start off, I almost exclusively relied on Ethan's strategies for the verbal section and didn't study much outside of that. If you are the type of student who enjoys the structure of a course and benefits from the pacing and organization of it, I would highly recommend this class. If you're effective at independent study, the course is pretty pricey. Personally, I decided to take the course rather than study independently because I wanted to avoid retaking the exam and on that end I'm pretty happy I did!
