Ravi Sreerama, through Veritas Prep, did what I considered impossible through a GMAT course. He successfully managed the online classroom, shared great test taking techniques, and gave real, practical, un-sugar coated advice on taking the test and learning progress at the same time. He helped me learn many quantitative topics and greatly improve the quantitative section of the gmat. Ravi has high expectations for his students, driving them to be the best and is uniquely motivating in that you believe you can achieve them. He was by far the best resource I could imagine in facing the GMAT and I learned more than I thought possible through his course.

Rob was an excellent instructor -- one of the best I've had not only in a test prep setting, but overall. It always felt like he truly cared about our success. This was a real difference maker for me, and was a big motivation. No question was too small or "dumb" for him to answer in a thoughtful, caring way. Rob was always "on" -- he was very consistent, and always came into class ready to teach with a positive, caring, energetic and professional attitude -- even when the energy of the class participants themselves was at a low. He would also make himself readily available to answer questions after class, during breaks, or by email. Rob is an overall great guy that you'd be lucky to have as your instructor!

I know this review may receive a lot of responses like sorry for your frustration, sorry test date was not as expected, but I still want to share my experience. My first two GMAT attempts was through self-study. I used vary few materials and my highest score out of the two attempts is 620. I am not sure how many would read my post after seeing my score but I still feel that my post can help other save $$$. I wanted to try out GMAT for the 3rd time to improve my score past 650. Spend $950 and 3 months on Veritas course on demand. The course is a series of records on sarcasm and very basic GMAT strategies(absolutely no lessons). The skillbuilders are just very basic probably just 8th grade math refresher. I was so disappointed on test day that I cancelled my score. So guys just do me a favor- save $950( equivalent to the price of taking 3 GMAT tests plus extra materials) and go elsewhere, I feel like I wasted my time and money. Their course is not worth even $300.

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

I took the Tuesday/Thursday Full Course with Mark Alan Robinson in July/August 2016. I took a lot away from this class, not just about conquering the GMAT but about life.

Mark understands that everyone learns slightly different, therefore he presents information in several different ways. He has found ways to show quantitative students how to succeed on the verbal section and vise versa. Mark was also very engaging and made me look forward to going to class. He stayed after class whenever necessary to assist with any additional questions, was very approachable, and sent multiple emails to the class asking how we were doing with studying and test taking. It really made me feel that he genuinely cared and wanted me to succeed. Also, his easy personality and openness created a very healthy and interactive classroom environment.

While going through each lesson book within the Veritas course, Mark also provides a great amount of supplemental information and tips that he has attained over the years of teaching and tutoring. I took the GMAT three times, and this last piece is what I attribute my 100 point score increase to.

Simply put, I couldn't have asked for a better teacher. I would recommend anyone interested in taking the GMAT to 1. sign up for the Veritas in class program and 2. enroll in Mark Robinson's class if you are in the Houston area. It will be well worth it!

If you have decided to start studying for the GMAT, you would be doing yourself a huge disservice by not taking the Veritas Prep Online Course with Ethan Todras-Whitehill and Chris Speck. When I started studying for the GMAT ten plus months ago, I thought I could take a self study online course and maybe read a few books from Manhattan prep and I would get a score of over 700. In May I sat for the test and got a 550. I was fairly taken back by this- I had put in the time, done A LOT of practice problems, and felt fairly prepared. I decided to sign up for a review course and went on the forums and started reading reviews. I watched a short video of one of Ethan’s lessons and was sold (https://www.veritasprep.com/gmat/ethan-todras-whitehill/). I sat at my computer at 8pm on a Sunday for the first class expecting to be put to sleep. I was so wrong. Ethan was extremely charismatic and engaging and I was actually enjoying the class. If you watched the video above, you probably had an “oh snap” moment. Ethan’s lessons involve feeling like that for three hours. The material review accompanied by a set approach for each question type gave me the confidence I did not have before. After the course was over, I kept in contact with both Ethan and Chris as they continued to provide feedback on questions I had along with providing some emotional support. I sat for the exam a few weeks ago and got a 710 (Q49 V38). My score went up 160 points because of Ethan, Chris, and the Veritas approach to the GMAT. My only regret was not taking the class sooner.

Taking the course with Ethan was a great experience. At first I was taken aback by Ethan’s enthusiasm as an instructor and then as the course continued, I realized that this was just his personality. The class was fun and interesting throughout the course, but Ethan found a way to make sure that everyone came out of each lecture with at least 1-3 major takeaways. As far as the basics, Veritas Prep expects you to do your homework and review basic algebra, arithmetic, etc but where Ethan and Veritas Prep excel is at giving you tangible strategy to outperform the competition. Ethan did this by sticking to major themes throughout the lectures and using sometimes quirky but oddly spot on analogies. Overall, I had a great time retaking the course and learned a lot, but unfortunately I did not have a great day on test day, so I came up short of my target score.

Initially, I had my doubts about the live online class format - it sounded like it would be dry and not as engaging. Then, I read the reviews on this site and decided to take a class with Ethan/Veritas -- one of the best decisions I've ever made!

The software used for the online classes is actually surprisingly good - in addition to great video quality and the ability to submit answers to problems in class, the chat function allows you to ask questions without feeling like you're bothering everyone (and you're able to have a bit of fun/humor with it).

But what really makes the class amazing is Ethan - he is hands-down the best test teacher I've ever had.

- He really knows his stuff. Not only did he score very highly on the test himself, but he's been teaching the class for a while and can even speak to overall patterns he's seen with all the students he's worked with over the years. He really makes the most of class time so you never feel like you've wasted time.

-He's patient. Ethan and his TA, Chris, were always extremely helpful both in class and responding to emails. They proactively and privately check in with you to see how you're doing and see if there are any gaps they can help you with.

-He's got all the tricks. Ethan really has a trick for every single type of problem, whether it's verbal or quant. Veritas already has a great methodology for each problem type that comes in the book set, but Ethan has even more materials that he developed himself to help you with things like pacing (uber important), strategy, and memorizing special cases.

-He's funny - it really helps! I found myself cracking up a couple of times during the actual GMAT thinking back to a couple of the pop culture references and jokes Ethan and our class had together.

I ended up increasing my score by nearly 100 after the class. I highly recommend taking the Veritas class with Ethan if you can.

I cannot say enough of Veritas. delightful to company to work with. Before i talk about the course, I wanted to thank the instructors who host the homework hours. A good resource to get some instant help.

I did the online course because i live in the Midwest and the nearest metro is 2 hours away. The system they use is great. It is a full on camera in a room with a smart board and an instructor. Initially, i signed up with a different company since I have used their books for a bit of self prep. However, after sampling the Veritas online software, i just had to go with them. If you want to do online and have live instructors- Veritas. Hands down!

Ravi was my instructor. There not enough words to describe how great he is! There is a reason why he is Veritas’ highest rated instructor. The guy has catchy phrases (Ravi-isms we called them) that he will utter throughout the class. MEMORIZE THEM and INTERNALIZE THEM. I remember taking the exam and going through every answer and just kept repeating the Ravi-isms to myself. Just a great way to help you go through the answers especially in the Verbal section.

When you purchase the full course, you get access to the On-Demand videos. They were amazing as well! I used to have them playing in the background at work after my course with Ravi was over. Great tool to freshen up on some of the concepts.

Overall, great course! Great instructor! Great experience!

I'd attempted to study for the GMAT on my own over summer 2015, but I wasn't receiving the scores I wanted - especially in the quant section. In summer 2016, I decided I would try a course. Since I live outside the US, I thought that an online course would be the best option, but I wanted something that would require the structure of an actual classroom; however, I was skeptical about the nature and personalisation of online instruction.

I chose Ravi's class (although it was at an inconvenient time for me) because of the incredibly positive reviews on GMAT Club and other sites. They almost seemed too good to be true - but they're not. Ravi is a charismatic instructor, and somehow manages to make you feel like you are in a classroom setting even when you're sitting in your living room.

What I found really surprising was the level of personal attention throughout the course. There were around 40 people in my class, but Ravi messaged me whenever I answered a particularly difficult problem right - and called me out when I got an especially easy one wrong. In the 12 classes I had with Ravi, he never once failed to answer a private chat.

On the instruction side, I thought his "Go through the door, not the drywall" approach was invaluable for the quant section, as were the Veritas skillbuilders. My scores in quant improved dramatically under his instruction. However, I was surprised to see that my scores in verbal (already in the 80th percentile) significantly improved throughout the course. His instruction (and catchphrases) and Veritas's strategies really helped me take it to the next level. I scored well above the 90th percentile in quant (and overall) on my first GMAT take.

I really couldn't have done it without Ravi, and would strongly recommend taking his course!

Ethan did a very good job! His E-File of original content was very helpful to me getting my 760. I took the Original Course with Anthony Ritz and got a 680. Then I took the course again with Ethan Todras-Whitehill and also took the GMAT economist after that. I saw that GMAT economist guaranteed a 90 point improvement - which was crazy to me, (it's very hard to reach 90% of the course as required but i did it - make sure you take the final exam or they don't let you advance past 80ish percent and they don't tell you.) With all of those courses I got the 710. Where I really jumped from 710 - 760 was doing hard problems on GMAT Club and then studying ethans data sufficieny the night before. I was very proud of this.
