Whether you're a working professional looking for ways for your resume to stand out or an undergrad trying to develop a more comprehensive academic understanding of the business world, pursuing an MBA degree may make sense for you. The San Antonio area has a great selection of business schools to choose from, including the University of Texas at San Antonio College of Business and St. Mary's University - Bill Greehey School of Business. That said, you have some work to do to earn admission to a business program. Many schools require applicants to take a high-stakes exam called the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT for short) to help them make admissions decisions. If you want expert assistance with your test prep, Veritas Prep can set you up with self-study San Antonio GMAT course materials and other resources to help you build your study skills before you sit for the test.

The GMAT is written with the specific needs of graduate-level business programs in mind, making it much more of a practical test than other standardized exams. You can try to study for each of the exam's four sections on your own, but that's handicapping yourself relative to your peers who invested in a San Antonio GMAT course. Instead, keep reading to learn more about how Veritas Prep may be able to help you!

What Subjects Does the GMAT Cover?

The GMAT has a total of four sections: Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Integrated Reasoning, and an Analytical Writing Assessment. These sections occur in no particular order, affording students the flexibility of starting with content they are confident about. Here is a comprehensive breakdown of what you can expect in each section:

1. Verbal Reasoning

The Verbal section is basically an English Language Arts test. It consists of 36 multiple-choice questions and a testing session lasting 65 minutes. It's scored on a scale from 0-60, but most test-takers fall into the 6-51 range. Questions in this section tend to fall under one of three categories: reading comprehension, critical reasoning, and sentence completions.

The exam's reading comp questions require test-takers to read a passage and then answer questions about it, frequently making inferences based on what they read in order to do so. Some of the critical reasoning items are similar, as you need to read and evaluate an argument or action plan. Since both question types demand comparable skills, you may be able to save time by preparing for both at the same time during your San Antonio GMAT prep course.

Sentence completion items work a little bit differently. You must choose the most grammatically-correct continuation of a sentence from the choices provided, a format that you've probably seen since elementary school. Familiarity can be a good thing, but that doesn't mean that these questions are easy. It's probably a good idea to review some sample questions in your San Antonio GMAT course so that you know what to expect on test day.

2. Quantitative Reasoning

If the Verbal section is an English test, the Quantitative section is a math test. This is an especially important section to many admissions departments, as its emphasis on logic, data interpretation, and analytical thinking closely mirrors the day-to-day duties of a business executive. You have 62 minutes to answer 31 multiple-choice questions, and you're scored in the same manner as the Verbal section above. Questions in this section fit into one of two categories: problem-solving and data sufficiency.

Problem-solving items require test-takers to use data provided to answer math-based business questions. If you studied business at the undergrad level, you've probably worked with similar questions in the past. That said, some of these questions can still be tricky. Completing practice problems during a San Antonio GMAT class can help you understand what the test expects of you.

Data sufficiency items work a little bit differently. Instead of answering a question based on the data provided, you need to indicate when you have been provided with enough information for the question at hand. This feels abstract, but it acts as a proxy for a very important business skill. If you over-research everything, others will arrive at a conclusion before you can. Of course, ill-informed decisions often have negative consequences as well. You might work on where to draw the line between too much and too little information during your San Antonio GMAT course.

3. Integrated Reasoning

The Integrated Reasoning section is a practical test assessing how well you can apply academic knowledge in real-world problem-solving situations. There are only 12 questions on it, but each demands multiple responses and you only have half an hour to finish. This section is scored on a scale from 1-8.

There are a variety of question types on the Integrated section, including graphic interpretation, two-part analysis, table analysis, and multi-source reasoning. These topics rarely appear in other academic settings, leading to a disorienting experience. For instance, multi-source reasoning problems require you to synthesize the information in graphs, text, and raw data in order to arrive at an answer. Worse, the exam gives you completely irrelevant data to test whether you understand what is actually needed in a given scenario. You might want to try tackling these problems by noting down what each source of info is telling you to make it easier to bring everything together.

Similarly, table analysis questions require you to work with data stored in a spreadsheet. The default settings won't get you where you need to go in a timely manner, so you'll need to manipulate it in order to answer the questions. Working with comparable spreadsheet software during a San Antonio GMAT prep course can help you build confidence heading into the test.

4. Analytical Writing

Finally, the Analytical Writing Assessment is a 30-minute essay prompt asking test-takers to evaluate an argument. The argument can be about any topic imaginable, but you aren't required to incorporate any prior knowledge. Instead, you're graded on a 0-6 scale by a combination of human and electronic graders on factors such as syntactic variety, topical analysis, clarity of expression, organization, and your understanding of the test you are analyzing.

One of the best ways to prepare for this essay (or any written assessment) is to practice your outlining skills during a San Antonio GMAT class. It may strike you as counter-intuitive to use precious test-taking time on something that isn't graded, but sketching a quick outline often saves time over the long haul by preventing you from staring at the screen wondering what to say next. Following an outline can also lend your work a cohesive structure that makes it easier for readers to follow.

You also need reading comprehension skills on the Analytical Writing Assessment because you need a thorough understanding of the argument you're analyzing. Thankfully, you should have already set aside some San Antonio GMAT course time for reading comprehension during your Verbal Reasoning prep. If not, now you have even more reason to do so!

What Types of GMAT Prep Are Available to Me?

Veritas Prep can set you up with any combination of the following services: self-study San Antonio GMAT prep course materials, Live Classes, and one-on-one tutoring. Each San Antonio GMAT course includes interactive video lessons and practice exams that you can download in HD quality on all of your favorite devices, enabling you to choose when and where you study. Should you have any questions, you also get access to live homework help so than an expert can assist you.

Importantly, the practice exams follow the same Computer-Adaptive Testing (CAT) format as the actual GMAT. The system selects your questions as a response to how you answered previous items, meaning that the questions get harder for test-takers doing well and easier for those who have missed a few. This can feel nerve-wracking if you're prone to second-guessing your previous responses, so gaining some experience beforehand could be a good idea.

If you feel that you need more structured test prep, a Live Class may be a better option for you. Each Live Class is taught by an expert who personally scored in the 99th percentile on the GMAT, making them a great source of information about how to approach the exam. A proprietary innovative online classroom also allows you to interact with your teacher and classmates in real time, providing a personal learning experience without the headache of attending a physical classroom.

Veritas Prep understands how busy you are, so they offer multiple Live Classes concurrently to make it easier to fit one into your schedule. If you want even greater flexibility, you can try one-on-one tutoring. A private instructor can meet with you on your schedule and review whatever you want to enhance your study efficiency. Tutoring packages also include access to the San Antonio GMAT prep course materials or a Live Class based on the package you choose.

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.


Education:

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!
