INSTRUCTORS

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

CURRICULUM

Veritas Prep's 'Think Like the Test Maker' methodology was a game changer for me. It is a systematic way to break down the question to quickly get to the answer. This is a critical skill for the GMAT.

Hear all about their experience taking the Veritas Prep course.

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.

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.

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.
