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

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

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.

If you want expert assistance to help you pursue your goals, Veritas Prep can provide a comprehensive Denver GMAT course or another service to help you improve your study skills. Whether you're an undergraduate student interested in pursuing a career in business or a working professional looking to advance your career, earning an MBA from a local school such as University of Colorado Denver Business School or the University of Denver - Daniels College of Business can help you set yourself apart. Of course, earning an MBA is not easy. The first step is to earn admission into your preferred business program, a competitive process that may involve a high-stakes exam called the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). This test is written specifically to help graduate business admissions departments to identify applicants who are ready for the rigors of their program. 

The GMAT has a total of four sections that add up to about three and a half hours of testing time, not including breaks. Each section evaluates candidates in a different area to mimic the broad array of skills business executives use every day. You can try to prepare for everything on your own, but it can feel very overwhelming. You are also left with no recourse if you get stuck on a particular concept. Instead, you might want to consider investing in a Denver GMAT prep course to guide your self-study.

What Material Does the GMAT Cover?

The four sections of the GMAT are as follows: Analytical Writing Assessment, Quantitative Reasoning, Verbal Reasoning, and Integrated Reasoning. There is no set order you take them in, allowing test-takers to start with something they feel confident about in order to build momentum for the rest of the test. For example, a math whiz might begin with the Quantitative Reasoning section to boost their confidence.

Here is a look at all four of the exam's sections:

1. Analytical Writing Assessment

The GMAT Analytical Writing Assessment is a timed, 30-minute essay that requires test-takers to evaluate an argument. The argument may not be about business or any other topic you're familiar with, but you won't need any prior knowledge of the subject material to craft your response. Instead, you're graded on your essay's clarity, syntactic diversity, topical analysis, and understanding of the argument you are evaluating. Essays are scored on a scale from 0-6 by a combination of electronic and human scorers.

One of the best ways to prepare for the Analytical Writing Assessment is to brush up on your outlining skills. Working from an outline virtually ensures that you present your case in a logical manner, as you have a plan of attack instead of just jotting down whatever comes to mind in the moment. Your outline can also serve as a refresher on what you wanted to say next, mitigating the time you waste trying to recall it. If you aren't already in the habit of outlining written assignments, you can practice in a Denver GMAT class before your exam.

Likewise, a solid understanding of the argument you are critiquing is very important for your essay. Some students make notes about any passages they want to quote or simply spend some time with so that they don't need to dig through the entire passage every time they need to reference it. If your active reading skills aren't up to snuff, you can practice during a Denver GMAT course to help improve your information retention.

2. Quantitative Reasoning

The Quantitative Reasoning section is basically the exam's math section. It consists of 31 multiple-choice questions over 62 minutes and is scored on a scale from 0-60, though most students land somewhere in the 6-51 range. Quantitative Reasoning measures your logical thinking, mathematical knowledge, and analytical thinking skills. There are two types of questions you can expect to see on exam day: problem-solving and data sufficiency.

The test's problem-solving items generally require you to interpret data in order to solve a math problem in a business context. If you have ever taken a standardized math exam before, the format should feel fairly comparable. That said, you shouldn't confuse familiarity with lack of difficulty. You might be able to handle these questions more efficiently if you spend some Denver GMAT prep course time practicing them.

The data sufficiency problems might feel a little novel to you. Instead of simply asking you to solve a math problem, these questions require you to identify when you have enough information to arrive at a valid solution. If you jump the gun and make a business decision before you've gathered the information to do so, you probably won't make the best decision. If you over-analyze the situation, you may become paralyzed and left unable to make any decision. Striking the proper balance is often a key focus while reviewing Denver GMAT course materials.

3. Verbal Reasoning

If Quantitative Reasoning is the exam's math section, then Verbal Reasoning is the English Language Arts section. You have a total of 65 minutes to answer 36 multiple-choice questions, and it's scored the same way as the Quantitative section. The questions on this section fit into three broad categories: critical thinking, reading comprehension, and sentence completions.

The test's critical reasoning questions generally revolve around how to make and analyze an argument or action plan, while the reading comprehension items assess your ability to understand and interpret reading passages. There is a great deal of overlap between them, so you might want to review both question types together during your Denver GMAT course. Since evaluating and crafting arguments is also a key piece of the Analytical Writing Assessment, any work you put into preparing for it may also pay dividends on this section.

If you've ever taken a grammar test before, the sentence completions should feel familiar. You are tasked with selecting the most grammatically-correct answer from the choices provided. That said, you shouldn't slouch in your test prep just because you've been doing similar exercises since you were five. The GMAT questions are harder than those on other tests you've taken, and many test-takers benefit from spending some Denver GMAT course time on them.

4. Integrated Reasoning

Finally, the Integrated Reasoning section is probably the most unique section on the test. You have 30 minutes to answer 12 questions, each of which has multiple parts that require multiple answers. The general idea is to evaluate how well you can apply what you have learned in school to real-world business scenarios. There are a variety of problem types on this section, including two-part analysis, graphic interpretation, table analysis, and multi-source reasoning. Your score will range from 1-8 on this section.

You probably don't have much experience with these question formats, so you might want to answer some practice questions in your Denver GMAT prep course to get a handle on them. For example, two-step analysis questions might ask you to find the solution that satisfies two completely different criteria. You can't just pick the first answer choice that satisfies one or the other, so make sure to read everything carefully before selecting a response.

Likewise, the table analysis questions require you to sort spreadsheets full of data to find what you need to answer them. You're likely already familiar with the basics of how spreadsheets work, but a little practice in advance of your testing date is probably a good idea.

What Types of Test Prep Solutions Are Available to Me?

Veritas Prep can set you up with three test prep options: a Denver GMAT prep course, Live Class, or one-on-one tutoring. Each Denver GMAT course consists of pre-recorded interactive video lessons that you may view at any time on your computer, tablet, or phone for optimal convenience. Everything can be downloaded in HD quality, and you get access to live homework help to address any questions you have.

Each course also includes practice tests you can use to get a sense of what the actual exam feels like. For instance, the GMAT uses a CAT (Computer-Adaptive Testing) format that allows the computer to select your next question as a response to your previous answers. Some students stress out over their previous answers whenever they perceive a question as easier, but it is best to devote your undivided attention to the question in front of you.

If you study best in a classroom setting, a Denver GMAT class may be a better option for you. Each class is taught by a knowledgeable instructor who personally scored within the 99th percentile on the GMAT, making them an excellent source of all kinds of information about the test. All instruction happens live in an innovative online classroom, making you feel as though you are in the same room anywhere with a strong internet connection.

Veritas Prep offers multiple Live Classes concurrently to make it easier to find one that suits your needs, and every class includes the course materials to facilitate study sessions between class sections. If you want even more flexibility, one-on-one tutoring allows you to learn at your own pace in a private learning environment. A tutor can design study sessions around your learning style to help improve your study efficiency.

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!
