Why you’ll love Veritas Prep:

INSTRUCTORS

I thought prepping for the test on my own would be sufficient. It was only after enrolling in the class that I realized the magnitude of the GMAT. My Veritas instructor provided me with an understanding of the test that I could not have experienced on my own.
-Adam H.

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

I just can't see how another test prep course could be more complete. Also the ability to retake the course within a year is an incredible bonus.

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.

What do you love about teaching? 
For me, it really comes down to the connection with the student.  I know that I was once in his or her place, studying feverishly and trying to crack the test.  I put myself there and really try to understand where my students are excelling and where they need some assistance.  At the end of the day, there are few better feelings than knowing that you’ve helped students achieve something they have challenged themselves to.
 
Which is your favorite lesson to teach?
Without a doubt, this goes to data sufficiency.  This is a question type that most students have never encountered until they take the GMAT and, understandably, many are thinking to themselves, “what the heck is this”?  Reading comprehension?  Yeah, I’ve done that.  Problem solving?  Sure.  But when it comes down to the DS questions, a lot of us are thrown off our game.  In a nutshell, I enjoying teaching it because it’s great when a student says, “I finally get it… I don’t know what I was freaking out about initially.”  DS questions are fairly unique to the GMAT and once we begin to get these questions right, we are well on our way to achieving our target scores.

I would highly recommend Ken
Ken was an excellent instructor. He was very easy to get along with and made learning the GMAT concepts very enjoyable. He took the time to make sure we conceptually understood every question in the lesson plan and I found that very helpful.Overall, I would highly recommend Ken to anyone who wants to ace the GMAT. He's a great person and great instructor.

Ken was incredibly helpful
Ken was an incredibly helpful instructor. He doesn't just go through the lessons in the books, he also adds in content full of other handy tricks and strategies. More importantly, he spends extra time and energy to ensure that all of his students understand the concepts, instead of rushing through all the material. In addition, he willingly stays after class and answers extra questions. Ken made sure that the money I spent on the course was well worth it.

Ken came well prepared
Throughout every single class Ken came well prepared and made sure every question was explained  thoroughly. I was very worried about the GMAT but after going through class with Ken, I feel a lot more confident in my chances of getting a high score.

Which is your favorite lesson to teach?
Data Sufficiency. I actually find the logic puzzle element to be pretty interesting, so I love sharing that with my students.  It's a problem type that tends to baffle almost everyone at first; being able to shed light on how it works and how to beat it is extremely rewarding.
      
Which movie/TV character would do best on the GMAT and why?
Dexter Morgan from 'Dexter'.  He's brilliant, thorough, perceptive, and clever.  Thinking like the testmaker would come naturally to him.  Also, his dad seems pretty sharp, so having an extra voice in his head on those tricky Data Sufficiency questions would be handy.  

If you weren’t teaching the GMAT, What would you be teaching instead?
Probably the LSAT.  Reasoning has always been a strong suit of mine, and who wouldn't want to talk about logic games for a living?  Okay, pretty much everyone but me.

Crazy brilliant and very approachable
A big shout out (do people still say that anymore?) to my instructor Bill. Crazy brilliant and very approachable, always arrived to class early to help me with the homework and frequently stayed hours afterwards to walk us through the questions. My test is next week and I would not be as confident walking into this if it wasn't for Bill and the very encouraging staff at Veritas Prep. Thank you very much!

I would highly recommend Bill to any future student.
Bill Robinson was an OUTSTANDING instructor! He was available anytime for extra help and he really cared about our class performing well on the gmat. I would highly recommend Bill to any future student.

I cannot express how awesome he is.
I have ZERO feedback for Bill. As much as I appreciate constructive criticism, I cannot provide Bill with any. He is an amazing instructor and easy to talk to who finds ways of explaining GMAT type logic through various ways. Bill should be a highly valued instructor with Veritas. I cannot express how awesome he is.
