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.

As the adage goes, “practice doesn’t make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect.” Hailey Cusimano has had the opportunity to apply this (and many other cliché sayings) to both the sports and standardized test world, ensuring her students are applying the necessary strategies to make their preparation effective and efficient. Hailey emphasizes a strategy-driven approach to test 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 and SAT with study techniques, strategies, and content reinforcement processes that build critical-thinking skills and allow students to tackle even the toughest questions the test has to offer. When Hailey is not making a difference in her students’ 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.

The best tutor I've ever had
Hailey Cusimano from Veritas was the best tutor I've ever worked with! She was truly an encyclopedia and knew the answer to every question I asked her. Her knowledge of GMAT quant and verbal were unmatched and she has a talent for explaining problems in a way that is easy to understand. In additional to this, she was always enthusiastic and encouraging!

Travis Morgan may be an actual movie producer (look him up on IMDB if you don’t believe us), but he certainly doesn’t fit the old cliché of “Hollywood types.”  In fact, Travis is a down-to-earth Veritas Prep instructor who is focused entirely on his GMAT students’ success. Having moved 5 times (!) before 6th grade, Travis now credits much of his career success to the skills he picked up early in life: adapting to new surroundings, new people, and new challenges.  It’s an expertise that he brings with him in his teaching methods.
 
A graduate of Brigham Young University (BA) and Northwestern-Kellogg (MBA), Travis’ goal as a teacher is to always meet students where they are now - how they think, what they see, the process they’re most comfortable with, and then try to open their eyes to a different approach, a new discovery, or a beneficial thought process. Here’s an example:  “I love to teach Sentence Correction. And even though about half of my students absolutely HATE Sentence Correction when they start, I show them that you don’t have to be an expert grammarian to do well on these problems. With a structured approach and a strategy called “Decision Points,” you can get the right answer with limited knowledge or even effort.”  And the biggest reward for Travis?  “I just love to see my students’ eyes light up when we teach this strategy and it completely transforms their entire view of these problems.”

My instructor, Travis Morgan, was phenomenal. 
  He was able to teach difficult concepts in simple ways so that everyone could understand.   Veritas Prep dissects the GMAT so that you know exactly what to expect and gives many helpful hints so that you know how to think like the test makers. The books that come with the course actually explain short cuts to doing the problems and walk you through step-by-step.  Seriously everyone in my class was very happy with the course and felt that it was well worth the money.

His classes were very dynamic
My instructor Travis Morgan (LA) was awesome!; he helped me to focus on effective strategies to tackle the GMAT! His classes were very dynamic and gave us advices out of the (material from his personal exprience as a test taker). My instructor and Veritas Prep are highly recomended!!

Special praise must be given to instructor Travis Morgan
whose upbeat personality kept me awake after a full day of work. Highly recommend

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.
