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.

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!
