Philadelphia is one of the best cities in the United States in which students can pursue an education. With a wide variety of higher education institutions to choose from, it's easy to take the next step in your academic development. Are you interested in pursuing a masters of business administration in Philadelphia? If so, then you're in luck. The city is home to one of the best MBA programs in the country at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. You could also go to a school like the Fox School of Business and Management at Temple University. As you begin applying to the programs you're interested in attending, you may need to take the GMAT as a part of your application process. Veritas Prep would be happy to help you study for this challenging exam in a Philadelphia GMAT course or with one of our other GMAT preparation options.

Why should you take the GMAT?

The GMAT stands for the Graduate Management Admission Test. It was designed with the purpose of assessing how prepared the students who take it are to continue on with their studies at the graduate school level. Today, admissions committees at MBA programs across the country use an applicant's GMAT score as a key factor in determining whether or not to admit that student into their program. That's why it's vital that you have an excellent test preparation process while you're getting ready to take this exam.

If you do well on the GMAT, then it could be easier to get accepted into your top choice MBA programs. For example, the admissions process at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania is extremely competitive. You can give yourself an edge over your competition by doing well on the GMAT. However, studying for this exam can be a difficult thing to do because of its comprehensive nature and challenging content. You may benefit from working with an experienced GMAT instructor as you study for your upcoming test. Keep reading if you'd like to learn more about what's tested on the GMAT.

What concepts do you need to know before taking the GMAT?

As mentioned in the previous section, the GMAT is a comprehensive exam that tests a variety of academic skills. The exam is split into four sections. These sections are called Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Analytical Writing, and Verbal Reasoning. You'll need to spend time preparing for each of these sections since they all test different skills.

For example, the Quantitative Reasoning section of the GMAT focuses on evaluating test-takers' problem-solving skills. The questions that you'll encounter will ask you to demonstrate your ability to reason with logic and solve problems using math skills. You'll need to be able to identify relevant data and utilize it to solve complex problems to perform well on this part of the exam. This test section has a time limit of 62 minutes and consists of 31 multiple-choice questions.

Conversely, the GMAT's Analytical Writing section has no multiple-choice questions. Instead, you'll be shown a prompt. Then, you'll need to craft a compelling essay that addresses this prompt within the section's 30-minute time limit. A half-hour is a short amount of time when you've been tasked with completing a complex essay. This means you'll need to work quickly to say everything that you want to say without running out of time. This section is graded on a 0 to 6 point scale.

Next, you'll need to complete the section on Verbal Reasoning. This part of the exam consists of multiple-choice questions and is graded on a 0 to 60 point scale. The section focuses on the skills of reading comprehension and critical reasoning. To perform well, you'll need to demonstrate that you can utilize this skill set efficiently since you'll only have 65 minutes to answer 36 questions.

Lastly, your GMAT may conclude with a section on Integrated Reasoning. Here, you'll be asked multiple-choice questions that focus on skills like table analysis, multi-source reasoning, and graphics interpretation. This section is graded on a 1 to 8 point scale and has a 30-minute time limit.

The GMAT is considered to be difficult because of the way it combines restrictive time limits with questions that assess numerous academic skills. The test's wide-ranging content also makes it difficult to study alone. That's why Veritas Prep is proud to offer help, like a Philadelphia GMAT course to help you get more out of your test preparation process. Below, you'll find more information about each of the studying supplements we offer and how they might help you improve your study sessions.

Why should you sign up for GMAT prep help?

Working with a test preparation expert can enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of your study sessions. Veritas Prep offers three primary forms of test preparation assistance to help you prepare for the GMAT. You can sign up for a Philadelphia GMAT prep course, take a class, or work with a tutor. These options all have unique benefits and can help you in different ways. If you'd like to get started with one of these test preparation resources, then the best way to do so is by contacting us directly. The paragraphs below provide more detail on each of these GMAT preparation options.

For example, you may be interested in working with a tutor. This is a solid option for students who value working with their instructor in a one-on-one setting. Your educator can work with you to create a learning plan that is entirely customized based on your specific needs. For example, if you need extra help with the GMAT's Quantitative Reasoning section, your instructor can spend extra time helping you develop the skills you'll need to reach for your potential on the day of your exam. This personalization is key to what makes working with a tutor such a rewarding test preparation supplement.

Your educator can even spend some of your time together helping you develop your general test-taking skills. For example, if you've struggled with restrictive time limits in the past, your tutor can show you strategies you can utilize on the day of your test to avoid running into any time-related issues. They can also give sample questions and tests so that you can practice answering questions efficiently. Your educator can even show you exercises you can utilize to overcome test anxiety if that's something you've dealt with in the past.

You may also be interested in signing up to take a Philadelphia GMAT course. This is a good option for individuals who already have a full schedule. Your Philadelphia GMAT prep course will take place through a series of on-demand video lessons. Each lesson will focus on a different topic that you need to know before sitting down to take the GMAT. Your Philadelphia GMAT course lessons will be available to watch anytime, so you can easily start studying whenever you find the time to do so. You'll even be able to work with an instructor one-on-one if you need extra help on a difficult topic from your Philadelphia GMAT course. Consider contacting us today if you'd like to sign up for a Philadelphia GMAT prep course.

Lastly, you also have the option of signing up for a Philadelphia GMAT class. Classes are a great test preparation supplement because they replicate the traditional classroom learning environment in a more convenient online setting. Your Philadelphia GMAT class will take place through a series of live lectures and you'll learn alongside a group of peers that you can interact with. Your instructor will have already taken the GMAT with success; in fact, all GMAT class instructors associated with Veritas Prep have scored in the 99th percentile on the test. Classes combine the traditional classroom experience that you know and love with the convenience of online learning.

As detailed in the paragraphs above, Veritas Prep offers a wide variety of test preparation options that can help you reach for your GMAT goals. You can pick the studying supplement that fits best with your schedule, learning style, and test goals. If you're ready to get started with the test prep option of your choice, you can easily do so by contacting us directly. We'll make every effort to connect you with options that meet your needs and that help you make the academic progress that you've been working towards.

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.

After receiving her degree in Physiology from the University of Washington, Erika took what she thought would be a short-term position teaching at a private tutoring academy while she finished her grad school applications. Several years and many score reports later, she was directing the academy, developing all new curricula for a wealth of standardized tests, and loving every minute of it. When an opportunity arose to write test content for an edtech company in Boston, Massachusetts, she bade the Pacific Northwest farewell and took a harrowing cross-country plane ride with her two very unhappy cats (for concerned readers, they have since forgiven her).
 
Since arriving in the Northeast, Erika has contributed to writing and editing thousands of GMAT and GRE questions and explanations, hundreds of lessons, and a growing number of instructional YouTube videos. She uses her experience being a testmaker to teach her students how to truly think like one — a process that not only yields impressive score improvements, but also empowers students to develop long-lasting critical thinking habits.
 
In her spare time, Erika enjoys making the most of her tiny kitchen and scoping out new taco joints. She still hasn’t finished a single grad school application, but at this point, she’d much rather help you with yours!
