    Veritas was amazing for my self study routine. I could watch the videos on my own time and they were very easy to follow along with the books.

    I took the six-week course with Ravi and Ron. This dynamic duo made me look forward to class, and pushed me to succeed. Ravi was very direct with students who had clearly not prepared by doing the homework. He genuinely cared about elevating us to the highest possible GMAT scores. Ravi and Ron shared a phenomenal sense of humor; their constant banter and good natured rivalry kept things lively and very entertaining! It was easy for me to stay engaged during the three-hour sessions each Saturday and Sunday…time honestly flew. The material was quite challenging, make no mistake. But Ravi was accessible as an instructor and helped me realize the key to the GMAT was strategy. I focused my efforts accordingly, and was able to sail through test day with a huge smile on my face! Thank you to the Veritas Prep team!

    • Advice to current prospective applicants: Don’t underestimate the power of a compelling personal essay / statement of purpose. Try to write something interesting that conveys your unique tone and personality. The admissions committee reads thousands of these, so use it as an opportunity to stand out.

    Veritas Prep is an amazing GMAT prep experience. It is evident that the organization gave careful thought to the structure of their student experience, from the sales experience, to the comprehensive online student portal, to the creative (and sometimes appropriately wacky) teachers. During the sales experience, I spoke with someone over the phone and he quickly answered all of my questions and then some. He also followed up diligently and concierged me into the experience (I purchased the package about two or three weeks before the course started and the sales associate helped me get up and running during that lead up time).

    Once you enroll, Veritas Prep gives you access to an online student portal that houses a study plan, practice tests, practice problems, videos and recordings of your class. I found this one-stop shop very intuitive and helpful to help organize my efforts (because we all know that GMAT studying can go in multiple different directions). They also sent me 12 dense lesson books; spend the time to read through them, they have some good content in there. I really liked the philosophy of Veritas Prep (focus on strategy and reasoning, rather than content memorization). A previous course that I took did not touch on strategy at all and I think that’s what prevented me from realizing my fullest potential.

    I took an online live class with a teacher by the name of Ethan Todras-Whitehill. He is a little bit out there, but at the same time, you almost need someone like that to help bring the content to life, engrain it in your mind so come test day you remember certain techniques. The classroom environment he created was extremely collaborative (I’ve never taken an online course before, so I was pretty impressed with the technology as well). Ethan also went ‘off-book’ at points, supplementing the prescribed Veritas Prep material with his own creative slides to help further enforce the strategy and content. Ethan also focuses more on strategy and helps you understand why strategy is so important on the GMAT. At first I didn’t trust some of the strategies, but once I gave them a try, I became a believer….THEY WORK! It’s evident that Ethan has invested additional time to facilitate a robust learning experience, which I can say was effective at engaging me and keeping me coming back for more.

    All in all, i’m in believer in Veritas Prep and would highly recommend the course.

    This test prep program saved my life! Going in to the GMAT I had no idea what would be on the exam, what to study, how to study, or how long I would need to prepare. With the helpful tools provided in this program I was able to take practice tests, enhance my skills with the simple-to-use program tools, and get helpful tips and advice to help me feel confident in going in to the exam. It worked so well that I only had to take the exam once (haha)!! That is a victory within itself. Definitely recommend!!

    • Advice to current prospective applicants: Start the application process early, and understand the scores you will need in order to get in to the program you want. Start studying for the exam well in advance so you don't feel under pressure, and feel confident in going in to the exam on test day!

    I did the private online tutoring. While I enjoyed the focused one-on-one attention, I found it hard to be online vs. in person. Unfortunately, at that time, there were limited options for in-person tutoring or class schedules that worked with my work schedule so this was my only option. I definitely learned how to take the exam from the program and have used some of the tools in my MBA classes.

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: Kelley School of Business/ 2019
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: Because it's a standardized test, it's not about learning the material, it's about learning how to take the exam. Read from a variety of providers on how they recommend you take the exam because it will help you understand how the exam works and how you can achieve the best outcomes.

    I used Veritas prep’s online videos to supplement my work in the Barron’s GMAT prep books and flash card. I am normally a book only learner, but since the Barron’s books were not very well written for the mathematics portion—especial the ratios problems and percent solutio( I have a chemistry minor in undergrad and they were 100 percent incorrect!! UGH) I looked to the veritas prep videos as a supplement. * Note I did not use any of their written material.
    I found the videos to be professionally done, extremely helpful in the explanation of steps, and ultimately saved my QUANT score. I also used the videos on grammar and sentence construction/correction with great success. I found them mush easier to understand when visualized as well as explained.

    The GMAT WAS STRESSFUL! Practice on your timing is my biggest recommendation. Also use the method of ditch an go, I took too long on the first few problems in Quant and didn’t have any time to finish the easier ones toward the end. I hate the format in which you can’t go back and work on a problem, but it is just a fact of life on this test you must accept and work through.

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: Metropolitan State University of Denver/ 2017-2020
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: Although I am never one to play up my abilities and hate to do so, this is THE time to do so. I also think it is important to include a little humility or highlight an area of weakness that you want to work through in your essay to demonstrate your ability to grow---- but don;t be afraid to brag a little too! In the United States, business is run by confident and independent, thinkers and those qualities are looked for in candidates in MBA programs. If you come from a more reserved collectivist society, you might find it difficult to assert yourself in this way, but it is necessary to shine through among the hundreds of applications.

    It’s well worth the money. It’s very easy to use and to navigate through the different sections. I liked this setup better than their competitors because of the ability to customize the length and intensity of quizzes, general questions or mock exams. In many of the others you can only take a full length mock exam, and it most days you won’t have the 2 or 3 hours to go through the whole thing. I like to receive instant feedback, and doing 5 or 10 questions helped me effectively find out my weaknesses and where I needed to focus to better my overall test results.

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: Sonoma State University
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: I'd say the best advice would be to plan ahead. Take a look at least a year in advance to the specific test dates that will work for you and plan all your studying around that.

    Well worth the money, if anything make sure you get the books which are extremely well written, organised and thought out.

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: Columbia Business School / 2020
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: Get the "low-hanging fruit" out of the way as soon as application websites are available- by that I mean fill out all the personal information, past employment, etc. for all the schools at the same time (this will also help you make sure all of that information is consistent on all your different applications). THEN you will have all your remaining time through the deadline to focus on your essays, recommendations, and talking to current and past students to get a feel for what each school wants and how best to prepare for an interview.

    Veritas did a great job with both GMAT test prep and admissions consulting. I highly recommend their GMAT test prep services. Our teacher was very motivating and taught many helpful tricks that I would not have gained studying on my own. He also had helpful studying recommendations outside of just using our regular GMAT books, which further enhanced our understanding of the key concepts. The course kept me motivated and enthused throughout the study period, and my score increased over 100 points from beginning to end.

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: London Business School, 2020
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: Do a lot of research on the school / speak to a lot of students and alumni, then connect what you learn to your own personal story

    Review of Veritas Prep Live Online Course with Ravi
    The is the easiest review I’ll probably ever have to write because Ravi’s online GMAT class is excellent in every respect. Every class, you would go in with expectations of what the lesson would be like based on a conventional understanding of the topic area and every class Ravi would shatter your expectations with consistently brilliant explanations.

    The amazing experience that is Ravi Sreerama’s Live Online GMAT course goes far beyond getting first rate explanations of GMAT problems. Ravi is funny, engaging and professional and is really good at pushing you to learn as much as you can each and every minute of the lesson. He truly cares about all of his students and believes everyone, if they work hard, has the potential to reach their goals on the GMAT.

    Ravi has such an intuitive understanding of what it takes to do well on the GMAT and his overall approach to the class reflects that. All of the discussions are centered on what it will be like on test day–timing, psychology, and strategy are all covered in great detail. By the end of the class, if you do what Ravi recommends, you will have developed a “GMAT Mindset,” that puts you in position to do well on test day.

    Do yourself a favor and sign up for Ravi’s class. It is the best possible decision you can make if you want to ace the GMAT (and ace life in general).

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: Columbia Business School '20
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: Get started early. There are so many steps to the process, and the more time you have to study for the GMAT, reflect on your goals, and refine your essays, the better your overall application will be. I studied for the GMAT from May to early July (~2 months), then switched into application prep mode for ~3 months until the end of September. So from beginning to end, be prepared to spend 4-6 months on the process. I had a lot of time off during that time, so if you are working full-time you may need longer than that.

    Used the test-prep books and video course. Very thorough and covers all the content areas. However, I would say this is a good foundation to get you to a 700 or so score, but look elsewhere for more advanced topics. This is not a knock on Veritas Prep, as I was extremely satisfied with the product, but just an observation on its limitations.

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: University of Michigan - Stephen M Ross School of Business
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: Focus on culture and fit during the essays. Michigan places a high value on fit, and it is imperative to show throughout your application that Ross is the school you want to attend. Focus on collaboration, action-based learning, and doing business to improve the world, themes the school espouses and demonstrates regularly.

    I took Veritas GMAT test prep and it was really helpful after being out of school for 3.5 yrs I was rusty!
    I did the first round and fell off the wagon half way through while transitioning into a new job, took the GMAT was not happy with the score and benefited by taking another GMAT class prep for free with another instructor 🙂
    Is definitely a lot of work, and a lot problems and a lot of time and a lot of money! but hey no one said people hand over master degree’s for free
    I did it all online but it is hard to stay motivated

    I thought the overall veritas program offered excellent value. I was able to improve my score by over 100 points in a relatively short period of time. the instructor was very knowledgeable and engaging and the lesson plans followed a logical progression that made sense to me. I will say that you’ll get out of the class what you’re willing to put in as much of the value of the class is in the guided pre and post class work that you put into it. Overall the best prep program i’ve had.

    Veritas Prep is a great program that really puts the ball in your court. You decide how much you get out of it. I would focus on improving your skills rather than trying to gauge your score that you will be getting on the GMAT because that portion of the program is not quite as accurate as I would have hoped.

    Title of Review: 30-hour Veritas Prep Tutoring Package

    Background: Prior to completing the VP tutoring package, I had already completed an in-person GMAT preparation class with Manhattan GMAT. The course was 27 hours long in total. After I completed the course, I took the GMAT once and scored a 600 (Q39 / V34). Unhappy with my score, I studied some more and took the GMAT again 2 months later and scored a 620 (Q42 / V34). I want to point out that by this point I had already studied 300 hours total for the GMAT. After taking the GMAT the 2nd time, I knew that these scores were too low. So, after a break to recharge my batteries, I evaluated the other test preparation options and decided that a different test preparation company and approach could help me get to the next level. I decided to invest in a 30-hour tutoring package with Veritas Prep.

    Action: I invested in the 30-hour tutoring package with VP. I was paired with a VP tutor in my area. Very nice guy and a patient teacher. A good communicator for scheduling our tutoring sessions.

    Pros: The personalized attention was great. My tutor had an Excel model to evaluate my performance on my practice tests (for full disclosure, this was a model that he put together and was not the property of VP, per se). He also provided me some extra practice problems that were customized for my key areas of improvement. I also want to note that during this time, my willpower to continue studying for the GMAT waned on and off because of work, and the hours it was taking to study (remember, I had already studied 300 hours prior to starting the tutoring package). My tutor gave me that extra push to continue the fight.

    Cons: A tutoring package is not cheap. It’s an investment and at the end of the day, there are no guarantees that your GMAT score will improve. Granted, this is also primarily driven by the effort the test-taker makes to get a good score.

    Results: After completing the tutoring package, I took the GMAT a 3rd time and scored a 610 (Q43 / V31). Major disappointment. After recharging my batteries again, I decided to study more to prepare to take the GMAT a 4th time. I took the GMAT again 7 months after my 3rd GMAT and scored a 650 (Q45 / V34). By the time I took my 4th GMAT, I had studied a grand total of 550 hours (from the start of my Manhattan GMAT course to end of my 4th GMAT). Given the timing of this last GMAT, I knew that this was my last time taking the GMAT because I had to work on the other items of my business school applications. In summary, completing the 30-hour VP tutoring package helped me improve my score from 620 (66th percentile) to 650 (76th percentile).

    Final Say: Do I recommend VP? The quality of the service is top-notch. But, at the end of the day, everything depends on the GMAT scores. VP helped me improve my score from 620 to 650. While it is not the jump that I would have hoped for (I was shooting for 700), the tutoring package helped improve my score. I don’t know if I would have been able to make the jump from 620 to 650 without VP because my tutor gave me the extra mental push to continue studying. Trust me that this is key because the process was very mentally exhausting for me. All in all, I was admitted to Columbia Business School. So, the GMAT isn’t everything!

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: Columbia Business School / 2019
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: Figuring out "Why the MBA" can be a different experience for everyone. I had a long process of introspection for me to identify what I was passionate about, and what I should pursue to pivot out of consulting. Once I identified what I wanted to do after the MBA, I pursued many opportunities to learn more about my target industry (I did a deep-dive). I read books, blogs, and documentaries. I spoke with people in the industry. I took classes related to my target industry and even did "mini field trips" related to my target industry, among other activities. All of these data points, anecdotes, and deep-dive experiences make your story that much more compelling, because you need to convince the admissions committee that your target industry is truly what you want to pursue. As you develop your story, make sure that there are no holes in it. Really think through things. Because some MBA admissions interviewers poke holes at your story to make sure it is robust and well thought-out -- after all, admissions committees know that the MBA is a major investment, and they want to be sure that you have thoroughly thought out why you want to make this major investment.Best of luck on your GMAT and MBA application process!

    Veritas offered a variety of GMAT prep options in order to best fit into your schedule. I personally chose the online class format which helped me to understand the concepts better. I do think I would have benefited more from a live class, but I didn’t have the time for it. Since I had chosen the online option, they offered office hours with a live tutor where I could ask questions. This was very helpful although it was difficult to make the appointment times as it was usually when I was commuting home from work at the time.

    Veritas’ practice exams were the best that I encountered in my preparation for the GMAT. My results on the exams were within 20 points of my actual score. If you seek access to high-quality questions to train, then Veritas is a great solution.

    I accessed a lot of Veritas GMAT test prep resources through a combined program offered by a Women’s Business Group, so I didn’t not have full access to the learning modules. However, the practice tests and performance breakdowns within those were immensely powerful for me.

    The test prep was very well organized and easy to follow. I would suggest purchase of the online version and not in person because it was easy to rewind and review content.

    The course overall was simple to digest and easy to use. It worked in a variety of platforms, and the online portion specifically made it easy to finish.

    My biggest concern was that the level of the questions that was focused were far more an overview of the GMAT test, and it did not dive really into the higher level questions that are found in an adaptive test.

    I would advise using this service, but it should be complemented with example questions of a harder variety (a book or e-book can easily fill this void).

    Veritas helped me a lot with quant. I was not where I wanted to be when I began studying for the GMAT and Veritas had some very helpful tips and tricks that allowed me to quickly sort through difficult problems.

    I was not satisfied with the reading comprehension section, however. I consistently scored much higher on my Veritas practice exams than I did the official GMAT and GMAT practice exams.

    Starting my exam with this was a great at shocking me into understanding the level of difficulty.

The practice tests may have been more helpful if paired with another service they offer.

Accurate practice tests and a variety of other advantages. I used the “Homework Help” service frequently.

Even if you're not sure, write a concrete plan to show the administrators that you are serious and that you are someone who will represent their school well. It doesn't hurt if part of that plan is about how to give back to the campus, either as a student and/or as an alumni.

    Completing the Veritas Prep Online GMAT course was one of the best decisions I made during my pre-MBA journey. After each online session, I went through additional practice questions on my own (so many were available) to help solidify my understanding of the content. The professor, who was visible via camera, called on us and we used the Chat Screen to respond. He explained concepts and practice questions/answers with ease and simplicity. Even though the course was online, it was still engaging and kept my attention. I was never bored. I laughed quite a bit as the other students and professor were humorous. And the Veritas Prep Dashboard features videos and lots of additional resources that can be used before/after class sessions. Overall, the Veritas Prep GMAT course was well worth the price of admission. Happy customer!

You'll see many examples online that just repeat your resume. However, after speaking with several admissions personnel, the reality is that they want to know you.

    I used Veritas and found the online self paced study to be easy to use and very helpful. A few things that stood out to me in regards to this program:

    1. This was perfect for my life style at the time, working during the day then coming home to pick up where I last left off. The downside is that you must be a self starter to really take advantage of this course of study. No one will push you to finish up all your modules for you, so if you need that external motivation, I would find another program.

    2. The cost was relatively cheap for all the books that I was given and the amount of time that I used this program.

    3. My initial pre-study GMAT test score was 590, but after a month of diligent work I was able to score a 690.

My instructor provided great advice not only for writing the GMAT but for applying to schools, preparing for interviews and life after the MBA. The networking of being in class with others going through the grueling GMAT prep and school applications was a huge added resource. The online support was also available and very helpful even after the in class part was completed.

    The number, and variety, of practice questions and built in timed practice tests were very helpful. I made my way through about 70% of the material prior to taking the GMAT (did not use any other sources) and did very well. I did not encounter any surprises or shocks while taking the GMAT; the types of questions and level of difficulty was very similar to the practice materials. The video tutorials were a helpful supplement- only used these as needed but were worth it for some of the trickier and less familiar concepts on the exam. Overall, I felt very prepared. I would definitely use Veritas Prep if I had to do it over again and recommend it to others.

    I had a bit of a panic mode, last minute GMAT studying session. Initially I wanted to embark on a self-study route but soon found that I was in over my head. After doing some brief research, I decided to purchase the online course at Vertias Prep.

    The course is comprehensive and includes various resources such as online lectures, homework problems, quizzes, and live help. It was a great (and cheaper) option for me as I didn’t have much time to go into a live class. If I didn’t understand the homework answer explanation, there were additional videos posted to give further insight. And if I was still confused, there were office hours where I could ask a live instructor. The software also had the capacity to create quizzes to take in cases where you didn’t have time to sit down for a full-length test. And the tests themselves were pretty similar to the actual GMAT test. The online lessons provided foundation basics that were helpful for those of us who haven’t used our quantitative side in awhile, and also expounded on various strategies to take the test.

    I highly recommend this course as it helped me achieve my goal score within my two month time limit.

    Veritas is a very complete course, however, one has to be very careful not to spend too much time in a specific set of problems…or one book – instructors can do a better job directing student on this. Their practice tests are not an accurate representation of the GMAT software and thus results should be taken with this in mind.

    The prep course was very thorough and well done. My class size was small allowing for lots of individual questions. The instructor was clearly experienced and well prepared for each class.

    The high number of practice tests was a big plus. The tests were not the greatest quality, but they were good enough for practice. The training materials were thorough, but I thought they were better suited for someone trying to get to 700, versus someone already at 700 trying to get to 750.

    Overall, I would definitely enroll again. It gave me a good foundation to build on with self study materials from other companies.

    Veritas was okay, but not as exceptional as everyone says. It is really just a group of people who believe they are super smart who hold you accountable for studying at the appropriate pace. It was a nice group of people to be around and discuss test taking with, but the teacher was terrible. It was his first live teaching class. Not only did he not know how to interact with his students, but he got a lot of the questions wrong and couldn’t help us when we had more advanced questions. Make sure to pick a professor with lots of experience if you pick the Veritas route. The people who you will be in the class with though are top notch who take it seriously so that is very helpful.

    Prior to taking the GMAT, I bought a lot of different books to study out of. However I knew that the actual format of the test would be online, so I wanted some prep in the actual test environment. Veritas had a free GMAT test online that gave me the opportunity to do so. I think the actual GMAT test was easier than the prep test, so I was glad that I was doing everything I can to prep for something harder so that I could ace the actual test.

    The Veritas Prep books are the best in the industry. They are well laid out and easy to follow, with numerous homework questions in the back. I really liked the format of the online class, as it allowed me to ask questions without feeling embarrassed, talk directly with a TA during the class, and also learn from the comfort of home. The recorded lessons that were provided after each class were also extremely helpful. I’d definitely recommend Veritas Prep to anyone considering business school!

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: University of Michigan - Ross School of Business / 2018
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: Start early! I underestimated how long it would take to go through the whole process. I would start with the GMAT and knock that out of the way. Then start going to recruiting events and meeting admissions representatives so you can get your face in front of the right people and also find out which schools are a good fit for you. I'd recommend doing a lot of research for your school selection and then starting with the applications.

    I took the in person classroom course while simultaneously leveraging the interactive online course. I thought the classroom prep was incredibly beneficial and well worth the money.

    I was also very impressed with the interactive platform. I found the online instruction to be interesting and clearly explained. They hired some very good instructors for this course.

    Plenty of practice tests. I found the verbal prep to be excellent. It was challenging (harder than the actual GMAT, but parallel in its concepts). I found the quant section to be a little lacking in similarity to the actual test. This is my only knock for this whole course. I felt that Veritas quant questions were aimed at tripping the student up (burying details in long questions) while the GMAT tested conceptual understanding and application. Just my opinion.

    I highly recommend Veritas; I took the online classroom course in 2008. The course was about eight weeks in length with two live online lessons every weekend. There were hundreds of practice problems for each lesson, but you get more out of the lessons if you do all the problems. Veritas also gave me access to at least 6 practice tests, which definitely helped me prepare for the real GMAT. It’s a lot of work, but it’s worth it. In the end, I spent $1000 on Veritas Prep, but it paid itself back several times over in scholarship dollars.

    Good program, good test taking tips and time management practice. Online classes were a bit difficult with time zones..but still worth waking up for 6am sessions. I’d use veritas again if I needed to take another class.
