Why you’ll love Veritas Prep:


I literally could not have asked for a better teacher. I have no idea where they pulled this guy out of, but most likely from a magician's hat. The dude is a wizard, and better than were most of my teachers at Harvard
-Niko H.


I was overwhelmed with how to study before taking the class, and now I feel like I know exactly what comes naturally and which areas I need to focus on.
-Justine S.


Veritas exceeded all of my expectations. There is a resource for any need a student might have. And it's great that we still have access to all of the resources even after the course wrapped up!
-Lisa H.


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.
-Jim S.

If you want to attend a business school like the Paul Merage School of Business at UC - Irvine or the Pepperdine Graziadio Business School - Irvine Graduate Campus, you will first need to impress the admissions officers at your preferred school. One of the ways to accomplish this goal is by scoring well on your Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). Whether you've just finished your undergraduate degree or you are returning for a master's degree after spending time pursuing your career goals, Veritas Prep can help you prepare for your upcoming GMAT with the right Newport Beach GMAT prep course solution for your specific learning needs and academic goals. We realize just how much effort it has taken to get where you are and how much you want to find personal and professional success. We specialize in helping future graduate students like yourself work towards achieving their goals.

The GMAT has been perfected over the past century with the help of experts from some of the nation's most prestigious business schools. The exam is offered by the Graduate Management Admissions Council and frequently plays a part in who is admitted to these very schools. The test is made up of four individual sections, most of which are further broken down by various types of questions. Together, these sections can give admissions officials a snapshot of your capability in critical areas deemed crucial by experts in the field of business education.

When you decide to leverage a professional Newport Beach GMAT prep course as part of your study preparation efforts, you are positioning yourself to have an advantage over those candidates who choose to prepare for the exam on their own. With professional academic resources and an appropriate support structure, you will have the opportunity to more efficiently prepare for both the content and format of the GMAT. With the help of Veritas Prep, you can give yourself the gift of expert educational guidance and the real-world experience to provide yourself with an edge on your upcoming exam.

What does the GMAT cover?

The GMAT is designed to ascertain your ability in Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Integrated Reasoning, and Analytical Writing Assessment within just over three hours of testing time. While three hours may initially seem like more than enough time, you'll want to pay careful attention to how much time you are actually given on each of the individual sections so that you can manage your time appropriately. Performing well on your GMAT can have an impact on your future, so it's important to know what you are up against and to take the time to identify the right Newport Beach GMAT course for your needs.

The Verbal Reasoning section of the test evaluates your reading comprehension, critical reasoning, and sentence correction skills. This is where grammatical expertise will be extraordinarily useful. If you have any doubts in your ability to identify parts of speech, appropriate sentence structure, or to choose the right word, you'll want to spend extra time studying. You will have 65 minutes to answer the 35 multiple-choice questions. The scoring range for this part of the test is between 0 and 60.

The Quantitative Reasoning portion of the tests examines your ability to identify pertinent information, use it to analyze a problem, and determine if you have sufficient evidence to solve the problem by asking a variety of problem-solving and data sufficiency questions. You will have only 62 minutes to evaluate and answer the 31 multiple-choice questions. The scoring range for this section of the exam is between 0 and 60.

The Integrated Reasoning section of the exam evaluates your proficiency in using multiple types of data to collect and synthesize information to solve problems. You will only have 30 minutes to answer 12 questions that may each have multiple steps. Success on this section of the test requires proficiency in several skills considered necessary in the world of business. A Newport Beach GMAT course can help you develop those skills with greater efficiency. The scoring range for this portion of the exam is between 1 and 8.

The Analytical Writing Assessment illustrates your ability to think critically and communicate effectively through your writing. You will only have to analyze and evaluate one argument for this section of the test, but don't let that lull you into complacency. You will only have 30 minutes to complete what many consider the most demanding segment of the GMAT. The scoring range for this section of the exam is between 0 and 6, so make every minute count!

Which type of Newport Beach GMAT prep course is right for me?

If you're a high-energy self-starter who likes to tackle learning on your own terms, you're going to love our Newport Beach GMAT course. You have the freedom to learn on your timeline with the academic support that can help you work more efficiently towards achieving your study goals. When you first enroll, you will have access to our diagnostic test. You can use this to ascertain a clear picture of how prepared you currently are. You may be surprised by where you need to improve, or you may find you are exactly where you expected. Either way, it's an excellent reference point to have as you begin your studies. From here you can move on to the appropriate on-demand lesson, as identified by your assessment. As you work through the lessons, you may find you have questions. Don't worry - we have you covered. You'll have regular opportunities to ask a qualified instructor your questions, and will receive feedback that can help facilitate your forward momentum. If this sounds like an ideal learning environment for you, then our Newport Beach GMAT course is the way to go.

For some individuals, learning is never better than when a classroom of engaged students surrounds them and they're able to interact regularly with their instructor. This is the type of learning environment you will have access to by enrolling in a Newport Beach GMAT class. In addition to receiving all of the resources available in our Newport Beach GMAT course, you will also receive 36 hours of live instruction over the course of six weeks, all from a teacher who scored in the 99th percentile of GMAT testers. Having a defined time with which to engage in the material can be highly motivating for those students who may otherwise find themselves too busy to make time to prioritize their studies. The live class setting is ideal for receiving real-time feedback on your progress from an instructor. It will also allow you the opportunity to build a strong academic support network of peers. If you thrive in a classroom environment and feel invigorated by discussions with your instructor and peers, a Newport Beach GMAT class may be the perfect fit for your learning requirements.

If you know that what you truly crave is an academic environment that will offer you more personalized support, you may want to consider one of our tutoring packages. Private instruction packages are combined with either our self-paced courses or live classes. Adding customized support to your GMAT test preparation efforts can be beneficial for those who may be struggling in a specific area or those who want a VIP-style personalized experience.

Sara was great
She was very caring about the student's scores, she took the time to answer questions, and gave excellent overviews on the exam. I could not have had a better experience.

Sarah is such a great instructor
I think Sarah is such a great instructor and person. She genuinely cared about our preparation for the test and our post graduate school aspirations. I had to drive every weekend from Santa Barbara but I knew it would be worth it because Sarah never disappointed .

Created a great atmosphere for learning
Sara Boem was great. She cares about student's progress and would always make herself available if students had any concerns/issues outside of the night of class itself. All I can say is that she is very intelligent, created a great atmosphere for learning, and she is a great human being. I will recommend her to my friends and colleagues. 

Education: BA, Brigham Young University | MBA, Brigham Young University | Doctoral coursework, University of Utah
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.
