Why you’ll love Veritas Prep:

INSTRUCTORS

Our instructor was excellent - he somehow made sentence correction and combinatorics fun - it was a pleasure attending class twice a week. After completing the course, I was able to score a 710 on the GMAT.
-Michael P.

CURRICULUM

I was overwhelmed with how to study before taking the class, and now I feel like I know exactly what comes naturally and which areas I need to focus on.
-Justine S.

To anyone on the fence about going with Veritas or another prep course provider, you will NOT be disappointed in the way VP runs its ship. The tools and the resources provided to you by VP alone make it worth every cent.

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 subject did you struggle with the most in school and how did you overcome it? 
I always had trouble with foreign languages. While I normally did well in analytical/conceptual subjects like economics and finance, I learned there’s no way to thrive in a foreign language without a healthy dose of memorization and repetition. I overcame this by changing the way I studied. Rather than all-night cram sessions I started working in smaller chunks, treating my study the same way I treated going to the gym or doing household chores. I found this approach was very helpful when it came time to take the GMAT. 
 
If you weren’t teaching the GMAT, what would you be teaching instead? 
High School math - either Algebra or Statistics. I was lucky to have some great math teachers during my formative years who went beyond simply teaching content. They enforced the applicability of mathematics, that it wasn’t just a bunch of rules but an analytical way of solving problems. I find the underlying principles of those subjects are applicable in unexpected ways.

What is your favorite quote?
My favorite quote comes from Lou Holtz, a great American football coach: Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond to it. While this is really effective advice for leading a happy life in general, it's also particularly great advice for success on the GMAT - mistakes along the way are to be expected, but how you respond to those mistakes is what will make all the difference! 
 
What do you love about teaching?
I love being around others and challenging people to think differently, but what I love most about teaching the GMAT is being able to encourage students who are feeling frustrated or overwhelmed by the test. Having been through the entire process (and range of emotions) myself, it brings me a lot of joy to show students how to think like the testmaker and unlock their pattern-recognition potential!

Which is your favorite lesson to teach?
I love teaching Algebra.  I think it is a really fundamental skill, and mastering it can give students a significant leap forward in their Quant studies.  I have a degree in Mathematics and really enjoy working with others to help them feel more comfortable with math in general.

What is your favorite quote?
If you can dream - and not make dreams your master, if you can think - and not make thoughts your aim; if you can meet with Triumph and Disaster and treat those two impostors just the same.
- Excerpt from IF, by Rudyard Kipling

I believe that in order to be successful in life you need to be able to keep your head in the game and not fixate on how you are doing or performing.  Failure and success are a part of life and are temporary. It's all a journey and this quote reminds me to put my energy in to giving my best in all situations, to keep moving forward, and to never get caught up in a big win or loss.

Real reviews

Sara was great
She was very caring about the student's scores, she took the time to answer questions, and gave excellent overviews on the exam. I could not have had a better experience.

Sarah is such a great instructor
I think Sarah is such a great instructor and person. She genuinely cared about our preparation for the test and our post graduate school aspirations. I had to drive every weekend from Santa Barbara but I knew it would be worth it because Sarah never disappointed .

Created a great atmosphere for learning
Sara Boem was great. She cares about student's progress and would always make herself available if students had any concerns/issues outside of the night of class itself. All I can say is that she is very intelligent, created a great atmosphere for learning, and she is a great human being. I will recommend her to my friends and colleagues.
