This review is for: Veritas Prep Full Course
Location: Toronto, Canada
Taught by: Bobby Umar

I took the Veritas course this fall on the recommendation of a friend who had enjoyed it and subsequently scored well on the GMAT. My experience was much the same.

Bobby is a great guy. He's smart and does his best to make the class entertaining so you can pay attention after a long day at work. In addition to keeping the course material engaging he also gave the class "MBA Life" tips about the overall experience that were always fun. I ended up creating a study group with 5 others from my class (which Bobby encourages) and we went out for drinks a few times. All good on that side of things.

Unfortunately, the downside of all the fun is that during class you very rarely get to the more difficult material at the end of each lesson. Depending on where you are scoring that is not necessarily such a bad thing, but for me it was always a bit of a letdown. Otherwise he is a great teacher and the Veritas material is very strong (I preferred it over both the official guide and the Kaplan books) and easy to follow along with on your own in case you don't get to it in class.

All in all a solid 4 out of 5 and I would recommend it to anyone looking to boost their score.

Hi!

What score were you aiming? Did you finally get it?

I agree, it's nice to do hard questions with an instructor, who can point to your mistakes in case you make them.

Hi - Thanks for sharing the reviews. I am going to commence with the Veritas material in the coming week. Would you recommend me the sequence that I should start? I prefer verbal at all times, as this helps generate interest while learning from a completely new material. Looking forward to your thoughts. Thanks.

Location: Houston, TX USA
Taught by: Mark Robinson

When I decided to take the GMAT, I had no idea what to expect. I work full-time and I knew that studying for this exam would be challenging and require a lot of effort. I needed a prep service that would force me to consistently study throughout the week. As a result, I decided to sign up for the Veritas Prep full course.
Mark Robinson, the instructor, was very helpful and kept the class focused. There are way too many tips and tricks you would not learn from simply reading the textbooks. Mark's teaching style enables his students to stay motivated and see these GMAT problems in a new perspective. He wants his students to think like a CEO, a mentality that will carry on past this course and into business school. To be honest, I found the experience in class to be way more helpful than reading the material on my own.
The structure of this course enabled me to really understand core concepts and solidify them through the homework assignments. The practice tests were also crucial in helping me with the GMAT. It enabled me to get the timing down for each section as well as review my weaknesses.
I took the GMAT in early March and ended up scoring a 700. As an engineer, I knew my weakness would be the verbal section. To my surprise, I ended up scoring in the 90th percentile in the verbal section. I honestly believe I would not have been able to achieve this score without Mark's help. I highly recommend this course to anyone preparing for this exam.

Taught by: Mark Robinson

When I began my study of the GMAT I assumed that self study would be sufficient and that there was no way I would need a prep course. After flat lining on my performance right off the bat I received the recommendation to take the in-person Veritas prep course from a very intelligent individual I know who, as it turned out, had taken the course previously. I signed up for the in person Sept-Oct 2017 course with Mark Robinson in Houston and without a doubt this was an unbelievably good decision. Mark imparted an incredible insight into how to approach the GMAT and it is a testament to his teaching skills that I feel that I have become a better thinker overall, not just a better GMAT test taker. I achieved a score that I never believed would be possible until it popped up on the computer screen, and for that I have to thank Mark and the Veritas Prep team.

Taught by: Anthony Ritz

I'm very happy with my experience and investment in the Veritas Prep course. I especially appreciated that I could retake the course for free within a year. I took my first Veritas Prep course in 2015 with David Goldstein in Boston, and I scored a 710 on my first GMAT attempt. A year later, I retook the class with Anthony Ritz in Washington DC. Anthony was a fantastic teacher - very sharp and genuinely friendly. He kept classes entertaining and fast-paced with his quirky sense of humor, and he provided me with a tailored study plan since this was my second rodeo. I was able to pick up new strategies from Anthony, and I bumped my score up to 720 on my second attempt. The effort and investment certainly paid off - I'm starting at UCLA Anderson in a week. I would 100% recommend this course to everyone.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

Had a great experience w/ Veritas Prep and ended up gaining more than 100 points on my score. Anthony was always available to help with specific questions, and helped to tailor the course to the needs of the class. Couldn't have asked for a better experience and was well worth the time and effort. I came in struggling with the quantitative section, but was able to make up significant ground while also gaining in the qualitative score. The online answer guides and ability to take more tests through the program were a huge help while I was reviewing and studying for the exam, and I've used the guide to help me better understand b-school options. Veritas put me in a good position to succeed, and I ended up doing better on the test than expected as a result of its methods.
