Why you’ll love Veritas Prep:

INSTRUCTORS

My instructor was the best professor I've ever had my academic career. If only the Ivy's can live up to his standards, then I will surely be satisfied. He strikes a perfect balance of rigor, communication, and support.
-Joseph M.

CURRICULUM

After months of studying on my own it didn't seem like I was making a big improvement. Then, after 5 weeks of my Veritas Prep course, my score increased by 100 points. This class has been a huge life saver!
-Christine D.

RESOURCES

Veritas has a plethora of great resources to help you outside the classroom. I really appreciate the timed homework problems that not only cover the material you just learned, but also help you look at pacing as well.
-Kelsey D.

RETAKE

Veritas has pleasantly surpassed my high expectations. Retaining a full year of online resources and the privilege to retake the course at a later time has proven immeasurably valuable to my journey.

What is your favorite quote?
My favorite quote is one by Benjamin Franklin on education: Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn. The entire Veritas Prep curriculum has been developed around the concept of Learning by Doing, and this quote captures exactly why we have done that. Rote memorization and rote learning are not effective approaches in education, and this is especially true when preparing for a reasoning and problem solving based test such as the GMAT.

What is your proudest accomplishment?
My proudest life accomplishment remains the first time I climbed El Capitan in Yosemite Valley. Although I had already been an active rock-climber while in high school on the coast of Maine, I was not prepared for the intimidating scale of Yosemite's huge granite walls when I moved to California to attend Stanford.  The first time I climbed there, I stood at the base of El Cap and thought I would never in my life climb this amazing piece of rock. One year later, after 4 days on the wall, I pulled onto the summit of El Cap, exhausted and elated; even though I have gone on to do many harder and more committing climbs, nothing will ever compare to the sense of accomplishment I felt that day.

Chris is a master of the GMAT material
My instructor, Chris Kane, was outstanding and helped me understand the different types of questions that the GMAT will use and the best ways to conquer these questions. I also did individual tutoring sessions with Chris and would highly recommend him. Chris knows how to teach complex subject matter to students. Chris knows all the different types of questions and strategies that the GMAT will throw at you. Choose Veritas Prep and Chris Kane.

Amazing teacher!
I can confidently say that Chris is responsible for at least 100 points increase in my score. Amazing teacher!

Just an overall great instructor.
Chris Kane was enthusiastic, very knowledgeable in all facets of the GMAT and just an overall great instructor. The 12 books that are given are extremely helpful, especially the skillbuilder sections. I learned valuable techniques and strategies to assist with question approach and time management. It was an awesome experience that was very beneficial.

What is your favorite lesson to teach?
My favorite lesson to teach is data sufficiency. Everyone learns something in data sufficiency! Everyone has that “aha moment” that I love. Some people come to the lesson with a big fear of data sufficiency and I am able to give them the tools to build their confidence. Some people come in thinking that they know everything about data sufficiency and are shocked by how much they actually learn during that lesson. It really is a metaphor for all of the other sections of the GMAT, it is not just what you know, it is how you play the game and data sufficiency is all about learning to play the game. What can be more fun than that? 

If you were not teaching the GMAT what would you be teaching instead?
If I were not teaching the GMAT I would be a coach. In fact I think of what I do for Veritas Prep as coaching. Like a sports coach or a vocal coach, or even a life coach, a GMAT coach is doing more than conveying content. The students that I work with need more than knowledge, they need to be able to perform to the best of their abilities on test day and it is my pleasure to help them do it!

Could I have scored 700+ without David? Probably not
I paid for 28 hours of online tutoring with Veritas Prep. I was assigned David Newland as my instructor. It was the best money I could have spent. Within six weeks of working with David, I scored 770 and 760 on the GMAT Prep Software PP1 and PP2 tests. On the real exam I scored 700 (90%), comprising Quant 47 (73%) and Verbal 39 (88%). The drop between the PP tests and the real test was mostly due to nerves and bad time management on the day. Could I have scored 700+ without David? Probably not given I only had six weeks to prepare. David was excellent. With 8+ years of GMAT experience he knows how to solve every question the test can throw at you. He explained methodology in a clear and easy to apply fashion. He was also flexible and we could frequently schedule sessions on short notice.

This guy is smart and really knows the GMAT inside and out
Got so lucky to get David Newland as my instructor. I went into the course more confident in quant, and David is a verbal expert, specifically in Critical Reasoning. This guy is smart and really knows the GMAT inside and out, which was helpful since I had never taken the exam before. I could hear his voice inside my head as I did practice problems and during the actual GMAT.

David was excellent.
The instructor David was excellent. I found that he took the time to explain each section properly and in easy to understand language. I very much enjoyed this course and would recommend it to any one with a very hectic schedule.

Which is your favorite lesson to teach?
I enjoy teaching the Geometry lesson.  Many students come to the class with a mental roadblock to Geometry.  However, once these students see that there are only 4 basic shapes that they need to understand, it is a relief and not quite as daunting.

What is your favorite Veritas Prep success story?  
I had a student whose score was dropping as she studied. She had taken all of the practice tests through Veritas Prep, plus had purchased additional practice test to help her study.  We decided that she should stop taking the practice tests and focus her study time on her weak subject areas.  With taking the practice tests, she was causing herself to have test anxiety and wasn't actually learning the material.  By focusing on her weak areas, she was able to bring her score up 100 points and get accepted to The University of Texas' McCombs School of Business.

Which movie/TV character would do best on the GMAT and why?
I should say Matt Damon's character from Good Will Hunting or Russell Crowe's character from A Beautiful Mind.  However, I have to say Ron Swanson from Parks and Rec.  The guy made wedding rings out of light fixtures by melting down the metal and pouring it into a mold.  Is there anything he can't do!?!  The real reason I would pick Ron Swanson is that he has an ability to simplify the most complex problems, take away all of the clutter and find the most efficient solution.  These skills would allow him to approach many of the quantitative problems and solve them without actually doing much math and allow him to see the traps on the verbal questions while concentrating only on the information that the problem gives.

Kristine, specifically, was great.
The in-class lessons are great for really diving into the material and learning exactly how to break down each question type and arrive at the best answer. Kristine, specifically, was great. She showed a genuine interest in the progress of each person in my class. Doing the homework after each class is a great way to see every question type/format possible for each lesson and reinforce the tactics learned in the lessons. I did every problem and really saw myself improve.

She was prepared for every class and communicated very effectively.
Kristine Dugan was a great instructor and very knowledgeable in every facet of the class. She was prepared for every class and communicated very effectively. She genuinely cares about how each of us were doing in regards to understanding the lessons.

Kristine was incredibly helpful and encouraging, and extremely intelligent.
My instructor, Kristine Dugan, was excellent at communicating the concepts to us, and the class size actually was only me and one other student. This private setting allowed us one-on-one attention with the instructor. Kristine was incredibly helpful and encouraging, and extremely intelligent. She kept the lessons light-hearted and we even got in some laughs (yes, during GMAT studying!). I would highly recommend her and the Veritas Prep book set was great. Excellent program!
