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

The online resources from Veritas Prep were incredible. I felt the number of books, practice questions, practice tests, etc. were amazing in terms of preparing me for the actual exam.
-Anna 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.

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.

Real reviews

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.

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.

Real reviews

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.


Education: BS,Truman State University | MA, History & Education, Truman State University | JD, University of Michigan
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.

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.
