Veritas Prep can set you up with Detroit GMAT course materials and other resources to help you improve your study skills heading into exam day. The GMAT (Graduate Management Admissions Test) is an important standardized exam. It's taken by both working professionals trying to accelerate their career trajectory and undergraduate students trying to develop a more comprehensive understanding of how the business world functions. Two distinct test-taker pools mean that a lot of people take this test to attend MBA programs at schools such as the University of Detroit Mercy or Wayne State University. You need to do well if you want to stand out from the crowd, but that doesn't mean you have to go it alone. 

The purpose of the GMAT is to help graduate business admissions departments identify applicants who have the foundational skills necessary for serious study of the business world. Each section of the exam measures business-relevant skills, making the exam much more practical than more academic entrance exams. You can try to prepare for it yourself, but you could be starting out at a disadvantage relative to classmates who invested in a Detroit GMAT prep course. Instead, keep reading to learn more about how Veritas Prep may be able to help you.

What Content Areas Does the GMAT Cover?

There are a total of four sections on the GMAT: Quantitative Reasoning (math), Verbal Reasoning (English), Integrated Reasoning (practical business exam), and an Analytical Writing Assessment (essay). These sections are in no set order, allowing test-takers some leeway to select their preferred lineup. You have to take everything over the course of about three and a half hours, but having the freedom to write your essay first or last is kind of nice. Here is a complete breakdown of the topics covered, section by section:

1. Quantitative Reasoning

The exam's Quantitative section consists of 31 multiple-choice questions over a testing session lasting 62 minutes. This section serves to assess a test-taker's mathematical ability, analytical thinking, and logic. It's scored on a scale from 0-60, but most students fall somewhere in the range of 6-51. There are two principle question types on this part of the exam: problem-solving and data sufficiency.

The problem-solving items are fairly straightforward. You are given data and asked to use it in order to evaluate math problems. While the formatting is simple, the questions can be challenging. You would be wise to go over some sample problems during your Detroit GMAT course so that you aren't surprised by anything on exam day.

The data sufficiency questions are a little bit more unique. You are given data to solve a math problem, but you do not actually solve the math problem. Instead, you indicate when enough data has been provided to draw the correct conclusion. It seems kind of bizarre, but it actually measures an important business skill. While it is obviously a bad idea to rush into a decision without a thorough understanding of the situation, it can be equally damaging to research something for so long that somebody else seizes the opportunity first. This distinction can be hard to pinpoint, so you might want to emphasize it while working with your Detroit GMAT prep course materials.

2. Verbal Reasoning

The Verbal section consists of 36 multiple-choice questions and 65 minutes. It is scored the same way as the Quantitative section above and is designed to assess a test-taker's command of the mechanics of the English language. Questions in this section may be classified into three distinct categories: reading comprehension, critical thinking, and sentence completions.

Reading comprehension items ask you to read a passage and answer questions concerning it, often requiring you to infer information beyond what is directly stated. Likewise, interpreting arguments and action plans is a key purpose of the critical thinking section. Improving your active reading skills by taking notes as you go along can help you with both of these question types. If you have yet to master this valuable study skill, practicing during a Detroit GMAT class could help you retain more of the info you read.

Sentence completion items require test-takers to select the most grammatically-correct option from the answer choices provided. If you have taken standardized exams before, this format will probably feel intuitive to you. That said, intuitive does not necessarily mean easy. It may be a good idea to look at some sample questions during your Detroit GMAT course so you understand what the exam is looking for.

3. Integrated Reasoning

The Integrated Reasoning section emphasizes the ability to apply the academic knowledge you learned in a classroom to a corporate setting. You have 30 minutes to answer a total of 12 questions, each of which demands more than one response. This section is graded on a scale from 1-8.

There are a lot of different question types in this section, including two-part analysis, multi-source reasoning, table analysis, and graphical interpretation. For instance, two-part analysis problems require you to find one answer that satisfies two completely different questions. If you blindly select the first answer that looks right, you may have skipped half of the question. The best way to develop a feel for how to tackle questions like these is to practice during your Detroit GMAT prep course.

Likewise, table analysis problems generally require you to interpret data in a spreadsheet. Business majors are usually pretty comfortable with programs like Microsoft Excel, but devoting some of your GMAT prep time to reinforcing your existing knowledge base could be a good idea.

4. Analytical Writing Assessment

Finally, the Analytical Writing Assessment is a 30-minute essay asking test-takers to evaluate an argument. The argument provided could be about anything, but you aren't expected to bring any prior knowledge to the table. Instead, your essay is scored by both electronic and human graders on criteria such as clarity of expression, organization, word choice, and topical analysis.

If you clam up during written exams, you might want to review how to outline your work in a Detroit GMAT class to make it feel more approachable. Not only does working from an outline give you a roadmap to help ensure a cohesive piece of writing, but it can also serve as a valuable reference point if you forget what you planned to say next. Some students scoff at the notion of using precious test-taking time on something that isn't graded, but you'll probably find it hard to go back once you are accustomed to outlining.

Similarly, you need reading comprehension skills to understand the argument you are critiquing. Active reading comes into play again, as it is often faster to refer back to your notes than an entire argument. You can also put the fundamental concepts of the Verbal section critical reasoning questions into practice when writing your essay, as the skills required are very complimentary.

What Test Prep Options Are Available to Me?

Veritas Prep can set you up with three valuable services: self-study Detroit GMAT course materials, Live Classes, and private tutoring. Each Detroit GMAT course contains pre-recorded interactive video lessons that may be streamed in HD quality on your favorite computer, phone, or tablet, allowing you to study wherever and whenever you like. Should any questions arise over the course of your test prep, you also get access to live homework help to get answers.

Every Detroit GMAT prep course also includes practice exams you can use to develop a greater familiarity with how the test works. Completing practice tests allows you to understand what the time available to you feels like, potentially making it easier to budget on exam day. It can also help you identify your academic strengths and any areas of opportunity that you might want to look at again. Most importantly, practice exams can get you used to the CAT (Computer-Adaptive Testing) format. Basically, the computer selects questions as a real-time response to how you're doing. This can feel disorienting without prep, so gaining some experience with it can only help.

If you feel as though you would benefit from a little more structure, a Live Class may be for you. Every Live Class is taught by a knowledgeable instructor who personally scored within the 99th percentile when they took the GMAT, making them a verifiable wellspring of information about the test. An innovative online classroom platform also allows real-time interaction with both the teacher and your classmates for a face-to-face study experience without the corresponding hassle.

Veritas Prep understands how busy you are, so multiple Live Classes are offered concurrently to make it easier to find one that works for you. Alternatively, one-on-one tutoring takes place entirely on your schedule. A private instructor can go over what you want to, when you want to, giving you a personalized experience. Every tutoring package also includes either the self-study Detroit GMAT course materials or a Live Class to compliment your private study time.

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!
