If you feel that you could benefit from expert test prep, Veritas Prep can set you up with a New York GMAT course or a variety of other services today. Whether you are a working professional looking for a way to set your resume apart or an undergraduate interested in developing a more comprehensive understanding of the business landscape, pursuing an MBA degree may be the right move for you. Plenty of local institutions offer great MBA programs, including Columbia Business School and the NYU Stern School of Business. Earning acceptance to institutions like these is easier said than done, but a good score on the GMAT (or Graduate Management Admission Test) is one way to help your application stand out. 

The GMAT is a high-stakes exam written to give graduate business schools a standardized indication of how each applicant might fare in an MBA program. There are four sections on the exam (Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Integrated Reasoning, Analytical Writing), each of which assesses a suite of skills demanded in the business world. You can try to cover all of these topics on your own if you like, but students who invest in a New York GMAT course often have more self-confidence on test day because of their formal preparation.

Let's take a look at what's covered on each section of the GMAT:

1. Verbal Reasoning

The Verbal Reasoning section contains 36 multiple-choice questions administered over a testing session lasting 65 minutes. It is scored on a scale from 0-60, though most test-takers land in the 6-51 range. Verbal Reasoning questions may be divided into three distinct categories: reading comprehension, critical reasoning, and sentence corrections.

The test's reading comprehension questions ask you to identify information in the provided reading passage and draw inferences based on that information. Similarly, critical reasoning questions ask you to analyze an argument or plan of action. Practicing your active reading skills can be a great way to prepare for both question types, so a formal New York GMAT class might cover both simultaneously to improve study efficiency.

The rest of the Verbal Reasoning questions are sentence completions that measure your knowledge of English grammar by asking you to select the most correct option from the choices provided. If you have ever taken a grammar quiz before, the formatting should feel fairly familiar. Many students mistake this familiarity with a lower difficulty level, but don't fall into that trap! Sentence completions should be as big a part of your New York GMAT prep course as anything else on the exam.

2. Quantitative Reasoning

The Quantitative Reasoning section packs 31 multiple-choice questions into a 62-minute testing session. It is scored on the same scale as Verbal Reasoning and assesses your analytical thinking skills, mathematical ability, and logic. The questions may be broken into two categories: problem-solving and data sufficiency.

The problem-solving questions are math-based, requiring test-takers to use data in order to answer practical business questions. If the sentence completions reminded you of a grammar quiz, these might feel reminiscent of a math test. Again, familiarity should not breed complacency. If you practice problems like these in your New York GMAT prep course, you may be able to answer more quickly and more accurately than you can now.

The data sufficiency problems are structured differently. Instead of using data to answer a question, you must identify when you have been provided with enough data to answer a question. Both too much and too little research can cause problems in the business world, and a New York GMAT course can help you figure out how much data you actually need for the task at hand.

3. Integrated Reasoning

The Integrated Reasoning section measures your ability to apply academic knowledge to practical problem-solving in a real-world context. You have half an hour to answer 12 questions, and each question requires more than one response. This section is scored on a scale from 1-8. Some of the question types you might see include graphic interpretation, table analysis, multi-source reasoning, and two-part analysis.

You probably haven't taken an exam like this before, but a New York GMAT course can help you feel more comfortable with it. For instance, multi-source reasoning problems require test-takers to synthesize data in text and graphical formats in order to reach a valid conclusion. You might want to jot down what each source means to make it easier to determine what to incorporate where. Some of it might not be helpful at all, so don't feel like you're forced to try to use everything.

Likewise, the table analysis questions frequently require you to manipulate a spreadsheet in order to gain ready access to the data you need. Business majors are probably familiar with programs like Microsoft Excel and Google Sheets, but a little review could help ensure that you know exactly what to do on test day.

4. Analytical Writing Assessment

Finally, the Analytical Writing Assessment is a 30-minute timed essay that asks you to evaluate an argument. The argument provided may have nothing to do with business, but you aren't expected to have any prior knowledge of the subject matter. Instead, you're graded on your topical analysis, syntactic variety, organization, clarity of presentation, and how well you understood the information provided. Your essay is scored on a scale of 0-6 by a combination of computer and human graders.

One great use of New York GMAT class time is to practice your outlining skills. An outline helps you structure your entire argument, making it easier to present your ideas in a manner that's easy for readers to follow. It also serves as a convenient reference point, helping to ensure that you do not omit any supporting details you originally planned to include.

Notably, test-takers are afforded some flexibility in which order to take the test in. You have to do all four sections, but you can take the essay first or last according to your whim. Likewise, you may adjust the order of the Verbal and Quantitative sections if you are feeling more confident about one than the other.

What Test Prep Options Are Available to Me?

Veritas Prep can arrange three different test prep services for you: a self-study New York GMAT course, Live Classes, and one-on-one tutoring. Each New York GMAT course contains interactive video lessons that you may stream in HD quality on your preferred mobile device, putting you in complete control over when and where you study. If you have any questions, live homework help ensures that you can receive a trustworthy response straight from an expert without compromising your scheduling flexibility.

Each course also includes several practice tests to help you get a sense of what you can expect on the actual exam. For example, the GMAT uses Computer-Adaptive Testing (CAT) to select questions in real time according to how a student is doing. It can be easy to interpret consecutive easy questions as an indication that you aren't doing well, but that line of thinking is generally unproductive. Instead, try to focus only on the question in front of you.

If you study best in a more structured environment, you might want to try a Live Class. Each class is taught by an instructor who personally scored in the 99th percentile on the GMAT, making them a fantastic source of test-taking strategies you can use. An innovative online classroom also allows you to interact with your instructor and classmates in real time, making it feel as though you're in a physical classroom without the hassle!

You are a busy individual, so Veritas Prep offers multiple Live Classes concurrently to make it easier to find one that suits your needs. Every class also includes the self-study New York GMAT prep course materials to facilitate study sessions between classes. If you want even more flexibility, one-on-one tutoring allows you to learn at your pace and according to your schedule. A private instructor can concentrate on your unique areas of opportunity to help you make the most of time spent studying. For example, a student who dislikes writing can concentrate on the Analytical Writing Assessment to help them build self-confidence. Each tutoring package also comes with New York GMAT prep course materials or a Live Class to compliment your one-on-one time with your tutor.

What Differentiates Veritas Prep in the Crowded Test Prep Space?

Veritas Prep always puts your needs first. If you want to study on your own time while maintaining access to an expert as necessary, a course is the right choice for you. If you prefer the structure of a classroom environment, a Live Class is perfect. If you want personalized attention in a one-on-one learning environment, Veritas Prep can arrange top-notch tutoring. You can also combine any or all of these options to create your ideal test prep experience.

Rob Stringham went straight from the delivery room (after the birth of his daughter) to the classroom, making it to his Saturday morning GMAT class right after becoming a father in the middle of the night. But this kind of deep commitment is only one of many reasons Rob was chosen as Veritas Prep’s Global Instructor of the Year. His unrelenting drive to help students is layered with over a decade of teaching experience and a sincere desire to see every one of his students succeed beyond all expectations.
 
A graduate of Brigham Young University (BA), Georgia Tech University (MA), and Columbia University (MBA), Rob’s talent in the classroom may be rivaled only by his extensive musical talents. He plays piano, saxophone, guitar, and ukulele. In fact, when he needs to de-stress, this private equity valuation expert turns to classical piano to refresh his brain. But there’s a different study hack he recommends for his students: “Chew gum while you study.  It increases alertness and certain features of cognitive performance.” It’s a small tip, but taken with the countless other strategies taught by Rob, the results are undeniable. Said one of his past students: “Rob was an excellent instructor... not just one of the best I’ve had in a test prep setting, but overall. It always felt like he truly cared about our success. This was a real difference maker for me, and it was a big motivation.” If you are looking for your GMAT cheerleader, be sure to check out the next course that Rob is teaching. He won't let you down.

Rob did a fantastic job
Rob did a fantastic job helping us understand what the creators of the GMAT are looking for in successful test takers. Getting inside the head of the test maker was one of the most important takeaways from the course.  The books alone are worth the price of the class, but Rob really helped solidify what we were learning.  I honestly felt that he cared about how we did on the exam.

He has a very personal approach to every student.
Our teacher was Rob Stringham. He is very knowledgeable, professional and helpful. He would stay with us after the end of the class to answer our questions and do the problems together that we asked him about. Not at all like those teachers that behave like they know it all and you’ll never get even close to their level of understanding the topic. He has a very personal approach to every student. If you are suffering from anxiety passing the exam he will recommend the ways to work with this issue, good literature to read on this topic and some tricks that will help you to reduce the level of anxiety about the test.

One of the best teachers I've had in any classroom setting.
Rob Stringham was one of the best teachers I've had in any classroom setting. Yes, he's very knowledgeable about how to solve GMAT problems, but more importantly, he effectively communicated the importance of ongoing study outside of the classroom. He also offered a holistic view of the GMAT, covering everything from stress management to timing to additional helpful resources. Rob's instruction helped me get the most out of the six weeks in the class and understand fully what I still need to do to find success in taking the GMAT.

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.
