I love two things: the aha moments when students get a core concept and getting word from former students that they beat their target score. In the classroom it's easy to tell whether students are getting it: frowns get turned upside down and faces brighten. Online, this can be a bit tougher to gauge. Students tend to be a bit reticent, so I'll usually interpret yeah.... as sign that we need to go over the material one more time. If I get back an exclamation point or an emoticon, that's when I know the class has it!
Which movie/TV character would do best on the GMAT and why?
It's a common misperception that Sherlock Holmes only uses deductive logic. While his skills of deduction would allow him to wreck shop on Inference and Data Sufficiency questions, that alone doesn't guarantee a top GMAT score. He also commonly uses inductive logic - creating and testing hypotheses while gathering facts to narrow down the range of possible solutions to a crime. This would give him an edge on gap-spotting on Strengthen/Weaken problems, finding the purpose in Reading Comprehension questions, and narrowing down the possible strategies for Problem Solving questions. If Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary) went head-to-head, I think the more socially unaware portrayal by Cumberbatch would win because he would never let his intuition get in the way of his logic.
Real reviewsHe was great!
I really enjoy classes with Dave, he was clear with his explanation and always tried to address the topics in a way that all of us could understand. He was great!
Dave Halliday was a great instructor. He was passionate about making sure everyone is on the same page and understands the questions perfectly.
I highly highly recommend Dave Halliday.
Dave Halliday is one of the best instructors i have come across in my life. He makes sure that entire class understands the course (each and every topic). His experiences, his teaching methods and always there to answer the questions with a lot of patience are few qualities of him, that makes him outstanding. I would recommend everyone if they get a chance, to be part of his class. I highly highly recommend Dave Halliday.

There are a number of great Veritas Prep lessons, but the Arithmetic lesson is probably my favorite to teach. It’s just a fantastic chance to grab people right out of the gate and hit them over the head with the value of new approaches and new ways of thinking about problems. It’s great to be able to show people that math on the GMAT isn’t really about grinding harder or being a genius. It’s about understanding what’s really important and then combining that realization with a skill set that every prospective MBA student is capable of possessing. And that’s before we hit you with the factors/number theory stuff and really blow your mind. It’s exciting stuff, and at the end of that lesson, I always wish we had a couple more hours to keep doing questions.
What is your favorite Veritas Prep success story?
Once upon a time, I had a student, Rachel, gain 230 points. She took every bit of advice I gave seriously, did every piece of work we asked, came into every lesson with specific and well-considered questions, and generally proved to be a model student. Once the course was over, we scheduled a few hours of individual tutoring. Rachel brought in charts of wrong answers broken down along multiple dimensions and was able to articulate precise areas of need for improvement. A couple of tutoring sessions in, she hit 750 on a practice test. We actually canceled a remaining tutoring session so that she could take the real thing ASAP. In the end, Rachel went from a 510 to a 740 after the Veritas Prep course and about five hours of one-on-one tutoring time. There’s just nothing better about being a tutor than hearing amazing news from a delighted student. It’s my singular goal every time I teach.
Real reviewsAnthony is a fantastic teacher!
Anthony is a fantastic teacher! He is not only great at getting the concepts across, but also changing the way you think about numbers and logic in general. He changed the way I will add, subtract, and multiply for the rest of my life! You can tell by the way he talks and teaches that he genuinely cares about his students and our success.
He always went above and beyond
My instructor, Anthony Ritz, was absolutely amazing. He is very knowledgeable on the test material and takes pride in making sure each class member understands each problem type. He has an endless book of tricks that he is able to articulate in a very easy to remember way. I emailed and instant messaged him many times during the week, outside of class, and he was always quick to respond with multiple ways to look at problems that were confusing me. He always went above and beyond to ensure that everyone was clear on what was going to be tested. He always offered to stay late to review any additional problems that may be confusing.
You never feel like your time is being wasted.
I took a 6 week GMAT course with Anthony Ritz and was so impressed by the professionalism of Veritas instructors. Anthony is one of those super-humans, who received perfect scores on every standardized test from the LSAT to the GMAT to the GRE. My past experience with SAT tutors was to stay away from the wiz kids because they didn't know how to teach/translate their genius, but Anthony does. His lessons were content rich, but contained added bonuses like calculation shortcuts and tricks to approaching problems. Anthony edited many of the Veritas books, so his familiarity with them is impressive. He knows exactly which problems are most challenging so he cherry picks the best examples to work through in class. You never feel like your time is being wasted.
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!
Real reviewsCould 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.
