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

Prior to taking the Veritas Prep Course, I scored a 560 on a practice exam. However, on test day, I scored a 700! I believe that the test strategies presented by Veritas Prep were invaluable for achieving the score I did.
-Nicole G.

RESOURCES

My experience with Veritas was phenomenal. The material they sent me prior to the course was thorough and taught me a lot. Plus my instructor kept the class fun and exciting.
-Trim R.

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.
-Anna D.

Hear all about their experience taking the Veritas Prep course.

If you're thinking about pursuing an MBA degree in the Atlanta, Georgia, area, you're in luck. There are a variety of great business schools in the area, including the University of Georgia - Terry College of Business, Georgia State University - J. Mack Robinson College of Business, Georgia Institute of Technology - Scheller College of Business, and Emory University - Goizueta Business School. One thing these institutions all share is a standardized testing requirement to begin graduate-level business studies. The GMAT, or Graduate Management Admission Test, is a high-stakes exam that many business programs use as one of their admission criteria. If you want expert assistance to help you study for this challenging test, Veritas Prep can set you up with Atlanta GMAT course materials and other handy resources as you work toward your goals.

The GMAT is written with the rigors of a grad-level business curriculum in mind. You can try to study for each of the exam's sections on your own, but students who invest in an Atlanta GMAT prep course start out with an advantage. With business school admissions being as competitive as they are, you don't want to give up any edge you can get!

What Topics Do I Need to Know for the GMAT?

There are four sections on the GMAT exam: an Analytical Writing Assessment (essay), Verbal Reasoning (English), Quantitative Reasoning (math), and Integrated Reasoning (practical). Each of these sections highlight types of knowledge that business executives use on a daily basis. For example, the Quantitative section emphasizes analytical thinking skills, while the Analytical Writing Assessment is all about effective communication. You can actually choose one of three different orders you want to tackle these topics in, so try starting with something you find easy in order to build momentum for the rest of the exam. 

1. Analytical Writing Assessment

The GMAT Analytical Writing Assessment is a 30-minute essay prompt asking test-takers to conduct an analysis of an argument. The argument could be about anything, but you aren't expected to have any prior knowledge about the material. Instead, your essay is scored on a scale from 0-6 based on factors such as syntactic diversity, topical analysis, organization, clarity, and your understanding of the argument you started with.

Learning how to outline in an Atlanta GMAT course is one proven way to prepare for this section. Working from an outline can make it easier to present your case in a logical manner. It can also serve as a convenient point of reference for you to consult if you ever forget what you wanted to say next. After all, there is nothing worse than watching your time tick away while you are struggling with writer's block.

Likewise, you'll need a solid understanding of the argument provided if you hope to evaluate it effectively. If you could retain more of what you read, you can practice your active reading skills during an Atlanta GMAT class to improve your skills. For example, taking notes as you go along requires your brain to actively engage in the material you're studying, making it easier to recall later.

2. Verbal Reasoning

The exam's Verbal Reasoning section consists of 36 multiple-choice questions over 65 minutes. It's scored on a scale from 0-60, though most test-takers earn a score between 6-51. Verbal Reasoning consists of three broad question types: sentence completions, critical reasoning, and reading comprehension.

Of these, the sentence completions are probably the most straightforward. You are given a sentence fragment and are tasked with selecting its most grammatically correct completion. The format might be basic, but grammar questions can get tricky at this level. It is advisable to try some practice questions during your Atlanta GMAT prep course so that you know what to expect.

Both critical reasoning and reading comprehension items require you to read something and then draw conclusions from it. For critical reasoning, you'll be crafting and evaluating arguments and plans of action. For reading comprehension, you're tasked with inferring new information based on what you read in a passage. Active reading is a valuable skill on both subsections, allowing some of the Atlanta GMAT course time you spent on the Analytical Writing Assessment to pull double duty on this section as well.

3. Quantitative Reasoning

The test's Quantitative Reasoning section contains 31 multiple-choice questions over 62 minutes. It's scored on the same scale as the Verbal section and places a heavy focus on using data to solve problems. Questions on this section fall under two broad categories: data sufficiency and problem-solving.

Data sufficiency items are unique. You are presented with a math problem and the data you need to solve it, but you don't need to actually solve it. Instead, you indicate when you could solve it with the information provided. This may seem abstract and even silly, but it serves a vital purpose. If a business executive doesn't do their homework, they'll end up making poor decisions. However, somebody else could seize the moment if you take too long contemplating what you are going to do. You can begin learning where to draw the line in your Atlanta GMAT prep course.

In contrast, the problem-solving items are much more intuitive. You simply need to use the data provided to answer math questions in a business context. Of course, these questions aren't any easier just because the format feels more familiar. It is still advisable to look at some practice questions in your Atlanta GMAT course to get a sense of what you can expect on test day.

4. Integrated Reasoning

Finally, the Integrated Reasoning section measures how well test-takers can apply classroom knowledge to practical problem-solving situations. This section only has 12 questions, but each requires multiple responses. You are also limited to just 30 minutes, making time management nearly as important as your knowledge base. Test-takers receive a score from 1-8 on the GMAT Integrated Reasoning section.

There's a variety of problem types on the Integrated section, including two-part analysis, multi-source reasoning, graphic interpretation, and table analysis. You may not have worked with questions like these, making review during your Atlanta GMAT prep course all the more important. For instance, table analysis requires you to manipulate an electronic spreadsheet in order to get the data in a format you can use. Practicing with a program like Excel can help you feel comfortable with how to manipulate the information effectively.

Similarly, multi-source reasoning problems require you to answer questions by synthesizing information from a variety of sources, including graphs, raw numbers, and text formats. The different formats can make it harder to bring everything together, so you might want to quickly jot down what each source means to keep everything straight. You also need to be on the lookout for information that just doesn't help you, as there may be some red herrings in the mix.

What Types of Test Prep Does Veritas Prep Offer?

Veritas Prep can help you find three types of test prep: self-study Atlanta GMAT prep course materials, Live Classes, and private tutoring services. Each Atlanta GMAT course contains interactive video lessons that you can stream on-demand through your favorite device, allowing you to study wherever and whenever you wish. You also receive access to regular live homework help, so any questions you have can be met with an expert response.

Every course also includes practice exams so that you can head into the exam with an idea of what to expect. For example, the GMAT uses a CAT (Computer-Adaptive Testing) format that allows the computer to select questions based on how a test-taker is faring. If you're prone to second-guessing yourself, you might want to look into meditation techniques to help you concentrate exclusively on the question in front of you. Alternatively, a test-taker who isn't comfortable around computers may want to practice with the test's electronic interface prior to their testing date.

If you need a more structured learning environment, an Atlanta GMAT class may be a better fit for you. Each Live Class is taught by a passionate, expert instructor who personally scored within the 99th percentile on their own GMAT, making them a gold mine of information about proven test-taking strategies. Every Live Class also takes place in an innovative online classroom, enabling real-time interactions with both your teacher and fellow students. You'll think you're in the same classroom even if you're hundreds of miles apart!

Veritas Prep understands how busy you are, so we offer multiple Live Classes concurrently to make it easier to find one that fits your scheduling needs. If you're looking for greater flexibility, a private instructor can meet with you whenever you wish. A tutor can also establish a personal rapport with you that may make it easier to ask questions as necessary. Better yet, each tutoring package includes either the self-study Atlanta GMAT course materials or a Live Class to compliment your personalized sessions. It's everything you could ever want!

Aaron Pond truly loves connecting with his students who count on Aaron to be a mentor, a friend, and a resource throughout the entire MBA application process. While the GMAT isn’t rocket science, Aaron could do that as well after receiving his undergraduate degree in Astrophysics from BYU. Since then, Aaron graduated first in his MBA cohort (also from BYU), and finished his doctoral coursework in Educational Leadership at the University of Utah. Aaron’s engaging teaching style and creative methodologies help students look at questions from a totally different perspective, turning horrendous problems into simple, 20-second solutions.
 
Even though Aaron has read all of the Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings books in German (which seems like one of those “genius-y” type of things), Aaron likes to say, The major work of the world is not done by geniuses. It is done by ordinary people, with balance in their lives, who have learned to work in an extraordinary manner. (Gordon B. Hinckley) As Aaron explains, “It is not just super-geniuses who ace the GMAT. It takes a balanced, calculated approach and it certainly takes work, but anybody can drastically improve their score.”

Aaron was a great teacher.
Aaron was a great teacher. He knows great techniques that  will help you improve your GMAT score. Thanks to Veritas Prep and Aaron, I'm a second year MBA student at one of the nation’s top MBA programs  and already have a full time job offer for when I finish my second year. I recommend Veritas Prep and Aaron to all my friends.

I really could feel like he cared about each student
My teacher Aaron went out of his way and put in extra time and effort to make sure all my questions were answered. He took time in each class to make sure each student understood the concepts clearly and still moved at an appropriate pace.  I really could feel like he cared about each student, not just his contract with Veritas Prep.

I haven't seen an instructor as well prepared as he is.
Our instructor Aaron Pond is a great guy always concerned with each student in our individual needs. I haven't seen an instructor as well prepared as he is.

Anthony Ritz: he’s really, really skilled at chess (he’s a U.S. Chess Federation-rated Expert), so unless you have some serious Gambit Game, we’d recommend you avoid facing him on the chessboard, and instead, take advantage of his exceptional math mind.  A native of Stone Mountain, Georgia, and a graduate of Georgia Tech and Georgetown Law, Anthony’s passionate about getting his students to the GMAT score they want.
 
“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. It’s exciting stuff!”
 
Anthony’s track record speaks for itself (he’s helped students lift their scores by as much as 230 points), and honestly -- he’s just a great guy.  But again, for the sake of your own self-esteem, ask him about his cats, talk to him about the Braves… but if you’re killing time with him between lessons, avoid the chessboard.

Anthony 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.


Education:

After receiving her degree in Physiology from the University of Washington, Erika took what she thought would be a short-term position teaching at a private tutoring academy while she finished her grad school applications. Several years and many score reports later, she was directing the academy, developing all new curricula for a wealth of standardized tests, and loving every minute of it. When an opportunity arose to write test content for an edtech company in Boston, Massachusetts, she bade the Pacific Northwest farewell and took a harrowing cross-country plane ride with her two very unhappy cats (for concerned readers, they have since forgiven her).
 
Since arriving in the Northeast, Erika has contributed to writing and editing thousands of GMAT and GRE questions and explanations, hundreds of lessons, and a growing number of instructional YouTube videos. She uses her experience being a testmaker to teach her students how to truly think like one — a process that not only yields impressive score improvements, but also empowers students to develop long-lasting critical thinking habits.
 
In her spare time, Erika enjoys making the most of her tiny kitchen and scoping out new taco joints. She still hasn’t finished a single grad school application, but at this point, she’d much rather help you with yours!
