Austin is home to some of the most respected academic institutions in the region. There are a myriad of educational opportunities available to students of all grade levels in the area. Would you like to pursue a masters of business administration near Austin? If so, there are a number of schools that you could attend. For example, you could go to St. Edward's University of the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin. These schools provide strong MBA programs that can help you reach your business goals.

However, before you can get started you'll first need to be accepted at the business schools you apply to. This is a process that may require taking a standardized test like the GMAT. Veritas Prep can help you get ready to take the GMAT through learning supplements like an Austin GMAT course. Keep reading to learn more about taking an Austin GMAT prep course and how it and our other offerings can help you prepare for your upcoming exam.

Why should you take the GMAT?

You may decide to take the GMAT for a variety of reasons. However, it is most commonly associated with the pursuit of an MBA degree. In fact, the GMAT was designed to help admissions committees at business schools determine which candidates for admission were most suited for success in the business school environment. That's why a student's GMAT score is often a key part of their ultimate admissions decision.

You may decide to take the GMAT as a means of satisfying an application requirement at the business schools you're interested in attending. If you take the GMAT and perform well on it, then you'll likely have an increased chance of admissions success at the schools you apply to. This is why it's crucial to have a strong test preparation plan in place when getting ready to take this exam. If you'd like some help studying for this challenging exam, then Veritas Prep can help you study for the GMAT in a variety of ways. Get in touch with us today if you'd like to learn more. In the section below, you'll get more information about the GMAT's content and format.

What's on the GMAT?

The Graduate Management Admission Test or GMAT is challenging because of the wide variety of topics it covers. The exam is split into four sections which each assess a different skill set that you'll need to find success in business school. The test's sections focus on the topics of Analytical Writing, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Verbal Reasoning. There are three different available test sequences that you can choose from so you do have some say in the order that you take these sections. This means that you can pick a section order that allows you to start with something easy if you'd like to do so. It's definitely worth considering which sequence would be the best fit for your academic skill set when signing up to take the GMAT.

Depending on your preferences, you may decide to take the GMAT Quantitative Reasoning section first. This part of the exam is made up of 31 multiple-choice questions and has a time limit of 62 minutes. Scores can range from 0 to 60 but generally fall somewhere between 6 and 51. The questions that you'll be asked to answer will focus on assessing your problem-solving and data analysis skills. You'll need to reason with math and logic to answer the questions in the Quantitative Reasoning test section. If you'd like some help studying for this part of the exam, then you can easily get it by reaching out to Veritas Prep today. We'd love to set you up with a learning plan that helps you develop the skills you need to feel confident taking the Quantitative Reasoning section of the GMAT.

Next, you may take the GMAT Verbal Reasoning section. This part of the exam focuses on skills like critical reasoning, sentence correction, and reading comprehension. You'll be asked to read a number of written passages and then answer questions based on the information that you've read. This involves doing things like evaluating arguments, drawing inferences, and understanding logical relationships. This section is also graded on a 0 to 60 point scale and has a time limit of 65 minutes.

Third, you could take the Integrated Reasoning test section. This part of the exam is concerned with your ability to synthesize information from multiple sources and using that information to answer multiple-choice questions. You'll need to be able to do things like use data from graphs, analyze and sort tables of data, and identify the relationship among data. This test section is graded on a 1 to 8 point scale and has a time limit of 30 minutes.

Finally, your test may conclude with the Analytical Writing assessment. This part of the GMAT is different than the others because you won't answer any multiple-choice questions in it. Instead, you'll be shown a prompt and then will need to respond to it with an essay. You'll earn a grade ranging from 0 to 6 points based on factors like the strength of the arguments you make in your essay and the quality of your writing.

Given all of this information, it's clear why the GMAT is considered a challenging exam. The test asks those who take it to demonstrate a wide variety of academic abilities within restrictive time windows. You'll need to have a strong test preparation plan in place to successfully prepare for your upcoming exam. Veritas Prep can help you do that with an in-depth test preparation resource. Continue reading for more information on the various options that you can pursue through Veritas Prep.

What can you get out of GMAT preparation help?

You can choose from one of three primary options when deciding which GMAT preparation option is the best fit for your needs. Veritas Prep offers an Austin GMAT course, classes, and the opportunity to work with private instructors. Each type of preparation assistance offers a unique set of benefits. In the paragraphs below, you'll learn more about how each of these options can help you pursue your test goals with confidence.

One option you can select is taking an Austin GMAT class. Classes take place online and replicate the traditional classroom learning environment. They offer all of the benefits associated with the classroom learning experience from the comfort of your own home. Each Austin GMAT class is taught by an experienced educator who has scored in the 99th-percentile on the GMAT themselves. You'll learn alongside a group of classmates who you can interact with. Your instructor will deliver a series of live lectures that each focus on a different topic that you'll need to know before taking the GMAT.

You could also sign up for an Austin GMAT course. Each Austin GMAT course comes with access to numerous video lessons. The lessons in your Austin GMAT prep course are pre-recorded and available to watch on-demand. This means you can easily access your Austin GMAT course and its content whenever you find extra time to study throughout your day. Your Austin GMAT prep course lessons will be interactive as well, which makes it easy to stay engaged throughout their duration. You'll even have the option to work with a private instructor when you need to after signing up for your Austin GMAT course.

Finally, you may be interested in working with a private GMAT instructor. Tutoring is a unique way to prepare for important tests like the GMAT. You'll be able to work with your educator in a one-on-one environment. You can get a customized lesson plan based on your specific needs, learning style, and test goals. Your tutor can focus on the specific topics that you need the most help with so that you get an efficient and effective learning experience.

Your instructor can also spend some time with you helping you to develop your general test-taking skills. For example, if you've ever dealt with test anxiety in the past, then you know how challenging it can make it to stay focused while taking an important exam. Your instructor can go over exercises with you that you can utilize to deal with test anxiety when you experience it. Similarly, your educator can also show you how to manage your time more effectively while taking exams with restrictive time limits like the GMAT. These are skills that you can utilize while taking the GMAT and when taking any future exams that you decide to do.

How can you get started?

Do you think that you would benefit from taking an Austin GMAT prep course? If an Austin GMAT course isn't right for you, then maybe you would prefer to take a class or sign up for tutoring. Whatever option you prefer, you can easily sign up for by contacting Veritas Prep today. We'd love to help you get more out of your study sessions and make you feel confident on the day of your upcoming exam. We hope to hear from you soon.

Jeff Yin loves helping his students develop skills that they can use to benefit themselves and others for the rest of their lives. He sees the preparation for the GMAT as a gateway to your future. On top of that, developing higher-order thinking skills will enable you to be more effective in life, no matter what you choose to do. Jeff so enjoys what he does so much, that if he was not teaching GMAT prep, he would most likely be a career coach helping people to find their path in life.
 
Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, this Harvard graduate and Ph.D. scientist is a pretty easy going guy - as long as he has access to bean and guacamole burritos. When he was 10 years old, he idolized Carl Sagan and wanted to be an astronomer just like him. We think he’s done alright with the direction that he chose!

David Newland sees himself not simply as someone conveying information and content but as a coach as well. As he explains, “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!” As a competitor both in athletics and debate his whole life, he could choose to focus on his own successes of which he’s had many, but David finds a greater pride and joy in learning of the triumphs of his students. He truly relishes hearing from students he’s worked with that they have gotten their goal score or into their dream program. So if you’re fortunate enough to work with David, please be sure to let him know when the same happens for you.
 
Despite all the accomplishments, David did suffered one somewhat traumatic blow early in life. “I put together a song and dance number for the third-grade school talent show and the music teacher required me to lip synch so that no one would have to hear me sing. My dreams of a music career were shattered.”
 
Born and raised in Independence, Missouri, David earned his JD from Michigan and MA and BA from Truman University and now enjoys living in the beauty of Vermont. In fact, inspired by the Green Mountain state’s quiet, open roads, he’s now considering getting a motorcycle so that he can drive very slowly on the deserted roads of the early mornings. Might just be a great chance to sing out loud as you go, David.

Real reviews

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.

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!
