Are you a student who is hoping to earn an MBA at a business school such as the University of San Francisco - Masagung Graduate School of Management or San Francisco State University? If so, you may need to take the GMAT exam, also known as the Graduate Management Admission Test. Veritas Prep can connect you with the best San Francisco GMAT prep course options to suit your particular needs.

The GMAT exam is the most commonly used exam for MBA admission and has been around for more than 60 years. MBA enrollment decisions are often determined partially based on your GMAT score.

The GMAT is a standardized exam specifically created by business schools with the intention of evaluating the particular skills which are most necessary to your success and your future graduate Business courses. Taking the exam demonstrates to the schools that you were serious about earning your degree and demonstrates your potential for succeeding in your MBA program. Veritas Prep would love to set you up with a San Francisco GMAT class or course to give you an edge as you study.

What does the GMAT cover?

The exam consists of four different sections and lasts a little over three hours, with the option of taking two 8-minute breaks. The four parts of the test include the Analytical Writing Assessment section, the Integrated Reasoning section, the Verbal Reasoning section, and the Quantitative Reasoning section. Let's dive deeper and take a look at the various details of each of these sections.

In the Analytical Writing Assessment, you are only required to answer one question. You must finish this portion within 30 minutes. In this assessment, you must read an argument which has been provided. You must evaluate this argument and determine whether you believe a clear case has been made using relevant evidence. You are not required to have any special knowledge of a specific topic to answer these questions. You are also not creating your own argument in this essay answer. The sole purpose of this section is to demonstrate your ability to critique an argument given to you from an outside source. In order to earn a good score on this portion of the test, you need to showcase your ability to communicate clearly using written English. Your ideas must be organized and fully developed. If you think you could use some extra help evaluating arguments or organizing your ideas, a San Francisco GMAT prep course is an excellent resource to help you while you practice.

The Integrated Reasoning section consists of 12 questions that you must finish in 30 minutes. Therefore different kinds of problems in this portion of the test. These include graphics interpretation, table analysis, multi-source reasoning, and two-part analysis. You'll be required to understand Data which is presented to you in number form, text, or graphics. You will also be required to use multiple sources of information to evaluate and solve a problem. In order to receive credit for answering a question, you must answer all parts correctly. The main skill you are showcasing in the Integrated Reasoning Section is your ability to look at large amounts of data from different sources and make logical decisions. This is a critical skill which is necessary for all your MBA courses. If answering this kind of question is new or difficult to you, a San Francisco GMAT course or class can assist you while you work towards your grasp of integrating information.

The next section of the test is the Verbal Reasoning portion. This part of the test consists of 36 questions which you have 65 minutes to complete. There are three main types of questions in this portion of the exam: critical reasoning, reading comprehension, and sentence correction. You do not need any special knowledge of the subject matter presented in order to answer the questions. The critical reasoning questions will assess your capacity to create or critique arguments. They are generally based on a short reading passage, and it is your job to choose an answer that either strengthens or weekends an argument. The reading comprehension questions required to read a longer passage which is accompanied by questions but assess your ability to understand the material, make inferences, or possibly apply the material to a different context. Sentence correction questions are given to you with a portion which has been underlined. You were given five different options, and you must choose the option which re-freezes the underlined section of the sentence to create the most effective sentence. This is a test of your attention to word choice, grammar, and your ability to construct a proper sentence. If you would like assistance in working on these skills, a San Francisco GMAT course or class can cover these topics and help you understand them better.

The final section on the GMAT is the Quantitative Reasoning portion. In this section of the test, you will have 31 questions would you must answer within 62 minutes. There are two different types of questions found in the quantitative reasoning portion of the exam. These include data efficiency questions and problem-solving questions. Data sufficiency questions ask you to determine a problem, identify the important information, and determine whether you have enough information to solve the problem. Problem-solving questions will assess your capacity to solve quantitative problems using logic and reasoning skills. To answer these questions, you must have a knowledge of arithmetic, geometry, algebra. However, this is not a test on your math skills but instead Is testing your ability to think logically.

If you're unsure of the pros and cons of the various sequences available, a San Francisco GMAT course or class can break them down for you and help you make the right choice for your needs.

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.”

Real reviews

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

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!
