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

I used to think the GMAT was 90% knowledge and 10% strategy. By the end of the course, I had come to realize that the reverse is actually true!
-Michael B.

RESOURCES

The online resources from Veritas Prep were incredible. I felt the number of books, practice questions, practice tests, etc. were amazing in terms of preparing me for the actual exam.
-Anna 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.

What is your favorite Veritas Prep success story?
I had a student who was sharp and focused and definitely capable of delivering a great score.  Then came test day: he’d underperformed by almost 100 points.  Definitely a disappointing result, but it can happen.  We got together and assessed what went wrong – it turned out that in studying he’d blown through hundreds of problems without making sure he fully understood how they worked.  Lesson: quantity is no substitute for quality!  With a renewed focus on studying for 100% comprehension, he came back with a score above his goal, a more than 100 point jump.  I couldn’t have been prouder.

Which movie/tv character would do best on the GMAT?
Patrick Jane from The Mentalist. As a master mind reader, almost nothing gets by Patrick Jane, though he always works with limited information: no criminal will ever tell the whole story, and there are of course always several wily suspects who hide their agendas too.  Kind of like those crafty GMAT test makers.  But with a cup of tea and a knowing smile, he mentally jujitsus everyone involved.  Knowing their limited capacity to deceive, he exploits all the info available to corner the right suspects – just as he would the right answer choices on the GMAT.

What is your favorite lesson to teach?  
Reading Comprehension. As it is for many, this was by far my worst skill set back before I took the SAT; the questions felt arbitrary!  Is the tone cautiously optimistic or more like hesitatingly hopeful?  The author’s purpose? How am I supposed to know??  But – no kidding – with only a few slight mental adjustments it quickly became my biggest strength.  So it’s a personal mission for me.  There may be a little bit less going on in terms of traps and shortcuts, but it’s a skill that, once developed, has immediate impact for a better understanding of nearly everything you’ll encounter in life.

Went above and beyond the lesson text
My instructor, Joseph, was genuinely invested in helping students understand the material and went above and beyond the lesson text, offering time-saving strategies and giving thoughtful context throughout the lessons. He made himself available and offered relevant insights that extended beyond the GMAT.

Best GMAT instructor I have ever had
Joseph Dise by far is the best GMAT instructor/tutor I have ever had. I myself worked as a SAT tutor in the past for Princeton review and I can honestly say that they have no one on their staff as knowledgeable and passionate about beating the GMAT. I have already recommended him specifically to pretty much anyone who is willing to hear.

Joseph Dise is a class act.
Joseph Dise is a class act. He's a genuine instructor who promptly starts class on time, every-time. As a bright young man, he is clearly able to think on his feet in fielding questions from classmates while thoroughly walking through problems step by step for the audience to follow along. Unassumingly, he takes the time to SHOW us how to approach problem sets and expand one's own thinking to gain awareness of the situation by accurately and methodically teaching us solutions.

Which is your favorite lesson to teach?
For me, it's a two-way tie between data sufficiency and combinatorics. Data sufficiency ties together the quantitative skills of problem solving with the critical thinking skills that are central to the verbal section of the exam, and I think it's where we provide some of the most important instruction for success on the test AND in business school! Combinatorics is a subject that most students have only spent a day or two on in their entire lives, but after our three hours together, they can usually handle the toughest problems the test might give them.

If you weren’t teaching the GMAT, what would you be teaching instead?
Funny you should ask--I'm actually a high school mathematics teacher in the Philadelphia area. If I wasn't doing that, I'd probably find myself teaching philosophy and critical thinking classes. Or maybe politics...or biology. I guess I'm just happy with a blackboard behind me!

I wouldn't change him for anyone else.
Neil Moakley was a very caring and concerned instructor. I wouldn't change him for anyone else. He communicated with us regularly and showed concern over our progress. He dedicated extra time after class to many so that we could feel comfortable in the subject matter. I believe that Veritas Prep has struck gold by having an instructor like Neil Moakley.

Neil Moakley was a great instructor
Neil Moakley was a great instructor who really took the time to go through all the material in a clear manner and also made sure to effectively answer all questions/concerns that came up during class. He was very willing to help and always offered additional help outside of our class time. I would definitely recommend him as a GMAT instructor.

Neil was great!
Neil was great! I thoroughly enjoyed the classroom lessons, and I feel more confident about taking the test now that I have completed the course. Neil always had a lot of energy and enthusiasm, and this kept me awake and paying attention even after working from 8am-6pm.

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.
