There are a wide number of educational opportunities available for individuals living in the Pittsburgh area. If you're interested in getting a Master of Business Administration near Pittsburgh, then you might want to do so at one of several excellent local institutions. For example, you could go to the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University or the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business at the University of Pittsburgh. As you begin applying to the schools you're interested in attending, you may decide to take the GMAT to satisfy your application requirements. This is a standardized test that can be challenging to prepare for without any guidance. Veritas Prep would love to help you study for the GMAT, whether through a Pittsburgh GMAT course or one of our other GMAT preparation supplements. In the sections below, you'll learn more about the GMAT and how Veritas Prep can help you prepare for it.

Why should you take the GMAT?

The GMAT stands for the Graduate Management Admission Test. As its name suggests, this exam was designed to help business schools assess how prepared their applicants are to study business at the graduate school level. Accordingly, the GMAT is usually taken by students who are getting ready to apply to MBA programs. If you take this exam and earn a solid score on it, then you may have a better chance of getting into the schools that you're most interested in attending.

Whatever your reasons are for deciding to take the GMAT, Veritas Prep would be happy to help you study for it. You can sign up for one of our in-depth test preparation options that may enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of your study sessions. The best way to get started with the plan of your choice is to reach out to us directly. The following section will provide more information on the content and format of the GMAT.

What's tested on the GMAT?

The GMAT was designed with the purpose of assessing how prepared applicants are to succeed in the business school environment. To that end, the exam is split into four separate sections. These sections focus on skills like Verbal Reasoning, Analytical Writing, Integrated Reasoning, and Quantitative Reasoning. A successful performance on the GMAT will require an ability to use all of these skills to answer a variety of question types.

You will have some control over the order of the sections on your exam. For example, you may decide to take the Verbal Reasoning section first. This test section has questions based on reading comprehension, sentence correction, and critical reasoning. To do well on this section, you'll need to quickly comprehend complex written passages and then answer a series of questions about what you've read. You'll earn a grade ranging from 0 to 60 for the section's 36 questions. The Verbal Reasoning section has a 65-minute time limit.

Next, you may take the Quantitative Reasoning assessment. This section consists of 31 multiple-choice questions and has a 62-minute time limit. Similar to the Verbal Reasoning section, this part of the exam is also graded on a 0 to 60 point scale. You'll be asked to demonstrate an ability to problem-solve using analytical and logical reasoning skills. You'll also be tested on your mathematical skills in the Quantitative Reasoning section of the GMAT. Are you having a tough time preparing for the GMAT Quantitative Reasoning section? If so, then consider signing up for a GMAT learning supplement through Veritas Prep. We'd love to help you get more out of your study sessions for this part of the GMAT.

Third, you could take the Integrated Reasoning test section. This part of the exam asks test-takers to synthesize information from a variety of sources and answer questions based on that information. You'll be asked to identify the relevant data and then use your problem-solving skills to apply that data to a series of multiple-choice questions. The section is graded on a 1 to 8 point scale and has a 30-minute time limit.

Finally, you may conclude your test by taking the Analytical Writing assessment. This part of the exam differs from the others in that it features a writing prompt instead of multiple-choice questions. You'll be asked to read the prompt and then respond to it in the form of an essay. Your essay will be graded based on things like the strength of your writing and the quality of the arguments that you make throughout your response.

You can sign up for a Pittsburgh GMAT course, class, or tutoring to get extra help on any of these test sections. In the section that follows, you'll get a closer look at how Veritas Prep can help you prepare for the comprehensive GMAT exam.

What can GMAT preparation assistance do for you?

You can choose from several different forms of GMAT preparation when you sign up to get help from Veritas Prep. For example, you can sign up for a Pittsburgh GMAT prep course, class, or work with an instructor in a one-on-one environment. Each type of GMAT preparation help has a unique set of benefits that may appeal to you for different reasons. Read on to get a closer look at how each option can supplement your study plan.

For example, you may be interested in working with a GMAT tutor. Tutoring is a unique way to prepare for your exam because it gives you the opportunity to work directly with an experienced test preparation instructor. Your educator can work with you to identify your opportunities for growth. Then, they can create a customized lesson plan for you that's based on factors like your learning style, test goals, and existing academic skill set. You can work through each lesson at your own pace and can spend more time on topics where you need additional help.

Your tutor can also help you by developing your general test-taking skills. For example, they can show you exercises you can utilize to reduce test day anxiety if you think you might experience it on the day of your upcoming exam. Test anxiety is a challenging thing to deal with because it can make it difficult to focus on the work that you need to do on your exam. However, when you sign up to work with a private test prep instructor, you can get the help you need to overcome this issue and may feel more confident about taking your exam as a result. Your instructor can also spend some of your time together helping you to develop your time management skills. This can make it easier to deal with the GMAT section time limits that require efficient question answering.

Or, perhaps you prefer to have even more flexibility in your study plan. If so, then taking a Pittsburgh GMAT course may be the right option for you. Your Pittsburgh GMAT prep course will be made up of a series of video lessons that are available to watch on demand. This means that you'll always have access to your test preparation resources throughout the duration of your preparation process. You can even work with an instructor in a one-on-one setting if you need additional help with a challenging topic. Each Pittsburgh GMAT course lesson is interactive as well, so it's easy to remain engaged throughout each study session. You can easily sign up for a Pittsburgh GMAT prep course by getting in touch with Veritas Prep today.

The final option you might consider is taking a Pittsburgh GMAT class. Taking a class gives you the chance to learn from an instructor who has scored in the 99th percentile on the GMAT. Your Pittsburgh GMAT class will replicate the traditional classroom learning environment through live lectures and a group of classmates that you can interact with throughout each lesson. Classes take place online so you'll get all of the benefits of the traditional classroom learning experience without having to leave the comfort of your home.

Whether you prefer a Pittsburgh GMAT course or another one of our preparation options, we'll make every effort to connect you with study options that meet your scheduling needs. For example, there are multiple GMAT class sections that you can choose from. This ensures that you can sign up for a class that meets at times that work for you.

How can you get started?

As discussed above, the GMAT is a comprehensive and challenging exam. However, performing well on the GMAT is a great way to make yourself a more attractive candidate for admission at business schools in the Pittsburgh area and beyond. Do you think that you would benefit from taking a Pittsburgh GMAT prep course? If a Pittsburgh GMAT course isn't right for you, then maybe you'd prefer a class or working with a private instructor. Wherever your interests lie, we'd love to help you get more out of your GMAT preparation process. Get in touch with Veritas Prep today if you're ready to begin.

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!
