INSTRUCTORS

I owe my instructor a huge thanks as the course not only gave me practical application of the GMAT but it gave me confidence. I now "think like the testmaker" which is an amazing feeling!
-Rhonda B.

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.

The GMAT is the only standardized exam designed specifically to test students who are hoping to gain admission to graduate business or management degree programs. It was created to evaluate the exact skills students will need to succeed in MBA courses. A Boulder GMAT prep course can help give you an edge on your competitors.

What is covered on the GMAT?

The exam is split into four sections, all of which test students on their problem solving and critical thinking skills. The test takes a little over three hours to take and includes the opportunity to take two 8-minute breaks. The four divisions of the exam are the Analytical Writing assessment, the Integrated Reasoning section, the Quantitative Reasoning section, and the Verbal Reasoning section. Choosing to take a Boulder GMAT course or class can help you if you feel overwhelmed at the idea of reviewing so many different skills. Let's take a closer look at what each section is evaluating.

The GMAT Analytical Writing Assessment is a 30-minute assessment which contains only one question. This question requires a written response in which you must evaluate a given argument. You do not need to have specific knowledge of the topic in the argument as you are only being assessed on your ability to write analytically. You must make a determination on whether you believe the given argument has made correct use of the evidence. Your writing needs to be clear and well-organized. This portion of the test will be scored by both a computer and human evaluator. The computer will assess the structure and linguistics of your written response. The trained evaluators will evaluate the quality of your ability to clearly express your ideas. If you need to improve your writing skills, scheduling a Boulder GMAT course, class, or tutoring session can provide you with guided practice opportunities and immediate feedback about your progress.

The GMAT Integrated Reasoning section contains 12 questions which you must finish within 30 minutes. This section specifically evaluates your ability to combine information from different sources in order to solve complex problems. There are four types of questions found in this section: multi-source reasoning, table analysis, graphics interpretation, and two-part analysis. Multi-source reasoning questions test your ability to look at data from various sources and use the information gathered to answer multiple questions. Table analysis questions assess your capacity to look at a table and determine with data is sufficient to answer a question. Graphics interpretation questions will present data in the form of a scatter plot, graph, bar chart, or pie chart and require you to make inferences based on the information. Two-part analysis questions measure your skill in solving complex, multi-step problems and can cover a wide range of content. Taking advantage of what a Boulder GMAT prep course or class may offer can help you understand how to solve these types of problems efficiently and effectively.

The GMAT Quantitative Reasoning section is comprised of 31 multiple-choice questions and must be completed within 62 minutes. This section does require a foundational knowledge of arithmetic, geometry, and algebra, but it is not testing you on mathematical skills. Instead, you are being evaluated on your logical and analytical skills. The two types of questions found in this part of the exam are problem-solving and data sufficiency questions. Problem-solving questions assess your ability to use critical thinking to solve quantitative issues. Data sufficiency questions determine your skill in analyzing problems of a quantitative nature. You will need to be able to discern whether you have enough information to solve the problem. Enrolling in a Boulder GMAT course or class gives you the opportunity to practice solving these kinds of problems until you are confident in your ability to answer them correctly.

The final section is the GMAT Verbal Reasoning section, which consists of 36 questions and has a time limit of 65 minutes. There are three kinds of questions in the Verbal Reasoning section: critical thinking, reading comprehension, and sentence correction. Critical thinking problems determine your skill in making and evaluating arguments and creating plans of action. Reading comprehension questions follow a long passage. You must be able to understand the main ideas, draw inferences, and interpret the material. Sentence correction questions will provide you with a sentence which will have a section underlined. Underneath the given sentence will be five different ways to phrase the underlined portion of the sentence. You will need to choose the best response to create a sentence that is grammatically and syntactically correct. A Boulder GMAT course or class can help you improve your verbal skills, so you feel prepared to take this section of the exam.

On exam day, you will have the opportunity to choose between three available test sequences. You only have a few moments to decide so it would be wise to make the determination before you arrive. A Boulder GMAT course can help you weigh the pros and cons of the different options and make sure you are aware of all the rules and choices you have when you walk into your exam.

What are the benefits of the various types of Boulder GMAT prep course options provided by Veritas Prep?

When you choose Veritas Prep, you have the opportunity to select the exact kind of instruction which best fits your schedule and preferred learning style. Each option offered was created with the intention of helping you achieve your highest potential, but each comes with its own set of benefits. At Veritas Prep, we offer three prep options: courses, classes, and private GMAT tutoring. Let's take a closer look at what each option offers.

When you take a Boulder GMAT course, you gain access to high-quality instructional videos which cover everything you need to prepare for the GMAT. You are able to access these videos at your leisure on your laptop, tablet, or smartphone. You will also have the opportunity to take a diagnostic exam so you can determine your strengths and weaknesses before deciding what to study. You will also be given access to full practice exams which use the same computer-adaptive software found on the GMAT. This software adjusts your exam questions based on your performance in order to determine your potential. Practicing on this kind of software before the actual GMAT can give you an edge on exam day. Choosing this prep option is an excellent choice for independent learners.

If you make the decision to take a live Boulder GMAT class, you will have access to all the same supplemental materials found in the self-guided course. You will also receive 36 hours of live instruction over a period of six weeks from teachers who have scored in the top one percent on the GMAT exam. This is an excellent option for social learners as you are able to interact directly with your teacher and classmates during class sessions. The live classes will cover all four sections of the exam.

A third option is to work with a private GMAT tutor. This provides the opportunity for personalized guidance based solely on your exact instructional needs. This kind of one-on-one attention means your teacher has the opportunity to provide instant feedback as you work through the various types of questions as a means to guide you in reviewing the right material. This can ensure you give each section of the exam the correct amount of study time.

Why should I choose Veritas Prep for my GMAT review?

When you enroll in a Boulder GMAT class or course, you will be receiving instruction from teachers who have scored exceptionally well on the GMAT. This can be an invaluable resource as you review for your exam. You also gain the opportunity to choose the right type of test prep that best suits your exact needs. No matter which skills you want to improve, Veritas Prep can help.

You've already worked hard to get to this point. Taking advantage of the best resources available makes sense. No matter what your academic or professional goals are, we can help you as you work towards your potential. If you'd like to try one of our self-guided courses, live classes, or you would prefer to work with a private GMAT tutor, give Veritas Prep a call and let us help you invest in your future business or management career.

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.

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!
