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.

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!

After 1,5 years of learning math at the university, one year of after work/school help with math, and many failures, I thought it was time for a change. I decided to join a GMAT prep course.

I came upon the Veritas Prep course and decided to contact them. From the moment you send an email to the Veritas Prep center, you see what the Veritas Prep course is made of. The people are helpful, fast in their response and very friendly! After my story and their recommendations, I decided to follow the course given by Chris Kane.

Chris Kane is an amazing teacher! Very professional and very helpful. His dedication to every student is amazing and he is always available for any questions. Even when the classes were over, he still helped the students out very well. I showed him my GMAT score I got after finishing the class, and he gave me some great tips on how I could improve myself for the next time. So I'm still studying, but I'm sure I'll do better than the last exam!

Even though I did not score extremely high, I scored a 330 before the classes, and improved it by 200 points on my first try after the classes!, I still believe the Veritas Prep course has improved my critical thinking and way of analyzing texts, a lot!

If you're considering a GMAT prep course, I highly recommend the Veritas Prep course, and especially the live classes hosted by Chris Kane!

I took the online course with Ethan Todras-Whitehill. His personality was fantastic and I NEVER felt bored in the class, and that was after working a full day and taking the evening class.

It was a good use of my time, but I would strongly recommend taking a refresher course before attending the live online course. I was totally new to the GMAT when I took the live online course, so I was in the dark for a bit. Also, you get access to the recorded courses once you're signed up if you want a different teacher to go over the same lessons, so having a couple of different perspectives was nice. Overall, my score went up about 70 points from taking the course, but I would attribute that to a ridiculous study schedule more than to the instructional period. Keep in mind too, that you have access to the recorded live sessions for a few months and you can sign up for an additional live online course at no extra charge after you finish your original period of instruction.

Overall, I would recommend this course to anyone, but with one caveat: don't expect to go to the class and understand the material. The money is made in the study time, the course sessions are great for getting up to speed, but the Veritas study and prep material is where the real meat and potatoes is.

Ethan provided an excellent in-person class. In addition to thorough content coverage, he dove deep into strategies to approach different question types, manage time and maintain focus. Every minute of the class was valuable. I've recommended Ethan and Veritas to friends and family.

Be prepared, though, to dedicate a very good amount of time outside of class to studying the material and refreshing basic algebra and arithmetic (prerequisites for being ready for class). I suggest taking the class at least 3 weeks before your exam so that you have adequate time to study after the class. I found that the class teaches you what you need to know, but you need to practice it to be ready to perform well on test day.

I took the Veritas Live Online course and could not have been happier. The format as well as the instructor, Ethan Todras-Whitehill, were both great. For anyone who works full time, the live online class is a perfect way to learn from the comfort of your own home after a long day at the office. The structure of the course helps provide a blueprint for how to attack a very daunting test. Ethan really helped to make learning these dreadful subjects fun and i would highly recommend taking a class with him. He was happy to answer any questions and you could sense his interest in how you were doing was genuine. Additionally, the online practice tests which Veritas provides were great in preparing to take the real thing. I ended up with a 720, which was around 100 points higher than before i took the course.
