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 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.

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.

Real reviews

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.

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.
