INSTRUCTORS

My instructor was the best professor I've ever had my academic career. If only the Ivy's can live up to his standards, then I will surely be satisfied. He strikes a perfect balance of rigor, communication, and support.
-Joseph M.

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!

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.

RETAKE

Veritas has pleasantly surpassed my high expectations. Retaining a full year of online resources and the privilege to retake the course at a later time has proven immeasurably valuable to my journey.

The MBA, or Master of Business Administration, is a fantastic degree to earn if you're interested in a career in business. Are you interested in getting an MBA? If so, you have plenty of options to choose from in the Evanston area. For example, you could attend the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. This business school is one of the top programs in the country and could set up its graduates for careers in a variety of business-related industries. Before you can get started with your MBA pursuits, you may need to take a standardized test like the GMAT to finalize your application process. You can get help studying for the GMAT with an Evanston GMAT prep course and other in-depth test preparation supplements from Veritas Prep. Read on to get a better idea of what you'll need to know before taking this exam and how we might help you prepare for it.

Why should you take the GMAT?

You may decide to take this exam for a variety of reasons. However, most individuals who take the GMAT do so as a part of the admissions process at graduate-level business schools. Some programs may require their applicants to complete the GMAT before they can finalize the application process. If you take this exam, then earning a solid score on it could make you a more attractive candidate for admission at the programs you intend to apply to. Schools often look to a student's GMAT score as a means of assessing how that individual would perform if granted admission into their business program.

Whatever your reasons are for deciding to take the GMAT, Veritas Prep can help you study for it. Consider reaching out to us today if you'd like to get started with something like an Evanston GMAT course. We'd love to set you up with a learning plan that fits your needs and helps you grow. In the following section, you'll get a better idea of what's tested on the GMAT and what you'll need to do in order to prepare for it effectively.

What's tested on the GMAT?

The Graduate Management Admission Test, or GMAT, was designed with the purpose of assessing how prepared business school applicants are for success at the graduate level of study. To that end, the test is split into four distinct sections. Each of these sections focuses on a different academic skill set that business schools want to see in their applicants. The GMAT's four sections are called Analytical Writing, Quantitative Reasoning, Integrated Reasoning, and Verbal Reasoning. The following section will provide a breakdown of each of these test sections.

First, it's important to note that you will have some control of the order in which you take these test sections. This gives you the ability to start with a section that seems easier to you so that you can warm up a bit on the day of your exam. Depending on your preferences, the first test section you may take is Integrated Reasoning. This part of the exam features 12 questions and has a 30-minute time limit. The section is graded on a scale spanning from 1 to 8. It asks you to demonstrate an ability to interpret graphics, analyze tables, perform multi-source reasoning, and more.

Then, you will take the Analytical Writing test section. Here, you'll be shown a prompt, and you will be tasked with writing an essay based on this prompt within a 30-minute time limit. Your essay will be graded on a scale ranging from 0 to 6 points. It will be graded on factors like the strength of your argument, the quality of your writing, and the structure you give your essay. Veritas Prep would be happy to set you up with a study resource that could help you develop the skills you may need to confidently craft a compelling essay for the GMAT Analytical Writing section.

The next test section is called Verbal Reasoning. This part of the exam features 36 multiple-choice questions that test-takers must answer within a 65-minute time limit. Here, you'll be asked to demonstrate your skills in reading comprehension, sentence correction, and critical reasoning. If you're having a hard time with this part of the GMAT, then you may be interested in signing up for an Evanston GMAT course from Veritas Prep.

Finally, the last section on the GMAT is called Quantitative Reasoning. Similar to Verbal Reasoning, this section features 31 multiple-choice questions that must be answered within a 62-minute time limit. It is also graded on a 0 to 60 point scale. Here, you'll be asked to show your problem solving and data sufficiency skills. To do well on the GMAT Quantitative Reasoning section, you'll also need to be able to identify relevant data and use logical or mathematical reasoning to answer challenging questions.

The GMAT is a particularly difficult exam because you'll need to prepare differently for each of its four sections. That's one of the primary reasons why it can be challenging to study for this test without any guidance. In the next section, you'll get additional detail on what Veritas Prep can do for you as you strive to understand the GMAT's content on a deeper level.

Why should you sign up for GMAT prep help from Veritas Prep?

You have several different options to consider when signing up to get GMAT help from Veritas Prep. Each option has a different set of benefits and may appeal to certain individuals more than others. You can choose from taking an Evanston GMAT course or class, or you can sign up to work with a private test prep tutor. Keep reading to get a closer look at the unique benefits of each of these test preparation supplements.

Do you have a busy schedule? If so, then taking a flexible Evanston GMAT prep course could be a good option for you. Your Evanston GMAT course will allow you to work through a number of interactive video lessons that are viewable on-demand. Each of these lessons will focus on a different topic that you need to know before taking the GMAT. Since each lesson is available anytime you'd like, you can work through your Evanston GMAT course at your own pace. When you sign up to take an Evanston GMAT prep course, you can also get help from a live instructor if and when you need it.

Alternatively, you may be more interested in taking an Evanston GMAT class. This test preparation supplement may be right for you if you've previously enjoyed learning in the conventional classroom setting. Your Evanston GMAT class will replicate your classroom education through live lectures that you will view alongside a group of peers. Your class will take place online, so you can get the GMAT studying help that you've been looking for without having to leave the comfort of your home. Your class instructor will have earned a 99th percentile score on the GMAT themselves as well. This means that they know from their own personal experience what it takes to succeed on the exam. Consider reaching out to us today if you'd like to sign up for a GMAT preparation class.

If you would prefer to work with your instructor in a one-on-one setting, then you may prefer to sign up for private GMAT tutoring. This is a great way to supplement your study sessions because it gives you the chance to work directly with an experienced GMAT educator. Your tutor can work with you to create a customized lesson plan targeted with your growth in mind. You'll be able to work through each lesson at your own pace and stop to get additional guidance whenever you need it. This level of personalization in the learning process is a great way to enhance the quality of your study sessions.

No matter what option you ultimately decide on, Veritas Prep would be happy to help you get started. When you contact us to sign up for an Evanston GMAT prep course or another studying option, we'll make every effort to connect you with instructors who can meet your scheduling needs. For example, there are multiple GMAT live class sessions to choose from to make sure that all students can find an option that works for them. If you prefer to work with a private instructor, we'd be happy to connect you with an educator who can meet for study sessions outside of things like your work or class schedule. This flexibility is key to what makes tutoring such a unique academic opportunity.

How can I get started?

Taking the GMAT can be challenging because of the comprehensive nature of the exam, and preparing for the GMAT can be difficult to do alone. Do you think that you would benefit from taking an Evanston GMAT course? Maybe you prefer taking a class or working with a private instructor. No matter what test preparation supplement you're interested in, you can easily sign up for it when you reach out to Veritas Prep today.

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!
