Whether you're just getting started with your GMAT preparation or have been at it for a while, Veritas Prep can get you started with a Los Angeles GMAT prep course to help you as you work towards doing your best on the GMAT. If you're a student who wants to apply for an MBA program, it is likely you'll have to take the Graduate Management Admission Test, also known as the GMAT. The GMAT has been around for more than 60 years and is one of the more common admission exams required for students who want to attend business schools such as California State University - Los Angeles College of Business and Economics or Marshall School of Business - USC. 

The GMAT has four sections to test you on the skills which matter most in business settings. Taking the GMAT is an excellent way to showcase your ability to excel in the program you are applying to. It shows your commitment to being successful as you work towards a graduate-level business degree. Getting a good score is one of the best ways to ensure you are admitted to the program of your choice. Taking a Los Angeles GMAT course can help you as you work towards your business goals.

What can I expect to learn from a Los Angeles GMAT course?

Taking advantage of a Los Angeles GMAT prep course is a great way to give yourself a leg up on the competition. Your instructor can assist you as you learn the format and content of the exam.

There are four sections on the GMAT exam, each one being 30 minutes or longer. The sections are the Analytical Writing Assessment, the Integrated Reasoning section, the Quantitative Reasoning section, and the Verbal Reasoning section. The entire exam can take up to three and a half hours, and you have the option of taking two 8-minute breaks.

The Analytical Writing Assessment takes 30 minutes and includes only one question. In this section, you will be presented with a specific argument. You will be required to analyze and critique that argument. The section assesses your critical-thinking and writing skills. You will not need to know any particular subject during this section. You will only need to be able to use the evidence given to create a valid and clear argument. You will also be tested on your syntactic variety, topical analysis, and how you organize your ideas.

The Integrated Reasoning section will test your ability to use data when making critical decisions. This sections consists of twelve questions and has a 30 minutes time limit. Being able to solve problems is one of the most important skills you will use in your future business career. You will need to understand data given to you in text, numbers, and graphs, use different source data to evaluate important information, and solve multiple problems. A Los Angeles course can help you practice both quantitative and verbal reasoning skills needed for this part of the GMAT.

Quantitative reasoning section of the GMAT assesses your ability mathematical principles in your reasoning, solve problems of a quantitative nature, interpret data presented in graphs and charts. It takes 62 minutes and consists of 31 multiple choice questions. In the section, you will be tested on problem-solving and data sufficiency. Both of these kinds of questions require you to have basic arithmetic, algebraic, and geometric knowledge but focus more specifically on how you use these skills in a logical and conclusive manner. You'll be given a problem that consists of a question with two statements. You must use the data given in the statement along with your basic mathematical knowledge decide whether you have enough information to answer the question to ask. A Los Angeles prep course is an excellent place to practice this kind of question.

The Verbal Reasoning section will evaluate your capacity to read and understand written material. This section contains 36 multiple choice questions and you will have 65 minutes to finish. You will be tested on reading comprehension, critical reasoning, and sentence correction. Reading comprehension passages come with questions requiring you to interpret material, inference ideas, or apply the information to different contexts. You will not need knowledge of the specific subject matter to answer these questions. The critical reasoning questions will have a short reading passage which comes with a question with five answer options. You will need to pick an answer that strengthens or weakens an argument, explains why the argument is flawed. Each sentence correction question will present a sentence with a section underlined. The choices will present five different way to state the underlined section of the sentence. You will need to use your grammar, word choice, and sentence construction knowledge to show how to write the most proper sentence based on the choices given.

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.

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.

Hailey emphasizes a strategy-driven approach to GMAT preparation, centered on the idea that every student’s learning style is different. With this approach, she has been able to coach hundreds of students around the world to success on the GMAT with study techniques, strategies, and content reinforcement processes that build critical-thinking skills and allow students to tackle even the toughest questions the GMAT has to offer. When Hailey is not making a difference in her students’ GMAT studies, she can often be found making a difference in the nonprofit world – helping orphaned and abandoned wildlife at one of the animal sanctuaries or refuges she volunteers her time with as she works toward a nonprofit of her own.

I cannot thank Hailey enough
After a terrible night of sleep in anticipation of my second go at the GMAT, I scored a 720!  I cannot thank Hailey enough for her patience, guidance, support, instruction, and advice.  There's a zero chance I could have achieved this score without her.

Hailey was a fantastic tutor.
She has an extremely high level of expertise in GMAT math and was able to explain many of the problems in multiple ways until I really understood the concepts. I improved my Quant score by 9 points (38 to 47) and got a 730 overall (47 Q 44V). Could not have gotten my Quant in order nearly as fast or nearly as efficiently without Hailey's help.

Beyond comparison
There may be someone out there in the world who knows more about and cares more about the GMAT (and her students' performance on it) than Hailey.  There's no question she can't answer, no explanation she can't make click, and no topic she doesn't seem to genuinely enjoy teaching.
