No matter what your academic or career background, learning style, or specific area of business interest, Veritas Prep can help you in your test preparation endeavors with our San Jose GMAT prep course solutions. If one of your professional goals is to gain admittance to the Donald and Sally Lucas Graduate School of Business at San Jose State University, you may first need to achieve a good score on an admissions exam. One of the most respected exams for business schools is the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT).  We know how important this next step is for you and we are committed to offering excellent GMAT resources to support you as you strive towards your goals.

The Graduate Management Admissions Council has continued to revise and refine the GMAT format and methodology over the years with the help of the nation's top business schools. Today it serves as one of the best indicators of a student's aptitude for thriving in graduate school. Throughout the four sections of the GMAT, you will be faced with a variety of questions designed to evaluate your capability in crucial business skills. Your GMAT score can be the determining factor when admissions officers have similar candidates from which to choose.

If you want to gain a significant advantage over the competition, a San Jose GMAT prep course is a great place to start. While other students are spinning their wheels trying to decide where to focus their study efforts, you could have the support of professional guidance and top educational resources to maximize your time and efforts. By choosing to prioritize your test preparation with expert assistance, you obtain access to professionals in the field of GMAT training who can aid you in preparing for both the format and content of the test. When you register for a GMAT review program with Veritas Prep, you will acquire the educational guidance and expertise that can help you work to distinguish yourself from other graduate school candidates.

What does the GMAT cover?

The GMAT covers four core skills: Analytical Writing Assessment, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Verbal Reasoning. Each of these is broken down into smaller skill sets which indicate your level of business acumen. You will have a little more than three hours to complete all sections of the test, but not all parts have equal amounts of time. It's essential to be aware of the time constraints within each section and to practice maximizing your time management skills, so you aren't left with unanswered questions in any section.

In the Analytical Writing Assessment section of the GMAT, you have 30 minutes to answer one question. The single question format is argument analysis, and the scoring range is between 0 and 6. This part of the test was designed to evaluate your ability to communicate effectively in written format and to use critical thinking skills. You are not required to have any previous subject area expertise to complete the question as all pertinent information will be provided.

In the Integrated Reasoning section of the GMAT, you have 30 minutes to answer 12 multi-part questions. The question types include graphics interpretation, table analysis, multi-source reasoning, and two-part analysis. For this section, the scoring range is between 1 and 8. In this area of the exam, your ability to effectively implement data analysis as part of the process of making decisions is being assessed. A San Jose GMAT prep course can help you strengthen the necessary skills.

In the Quantitative Reasoning section of the GMAT, you have 62 minutes to answer 31 questions in multiple choice format. The questions types include problem-solving and data sufficiency. For this section, the scoring range is between 0 and 60. Problem-solving questions make use of logical and analytical reasoning to select an answer while data sufficiency questions look for indications that you can efficiently analyze problems and identify critical data to determine whether or not there are sufficient resources to solve a problem.

In the Verbal Reasoning section of the GMAT, you have 65 minutes to answer 36 questions in multiple choice format. The types of questions in this portion of the exam include reading comprehension, critical reasoning, and sentence correction. The scoring range for this section of the test is between 0 and 60. Within this section, you will have the opportunity to demonstrate your expertise in complying with conventional writing standards, draw inferences, evaluate and form arguments, and follow quantitative concept development.

What type of San Jose GMAT prep course is right for me?

Veritas Prep offers three levels of academic support as you prepare to face the GMAT, including self-paced courses, live classes, and comprehensive tutoring packages. To help you choose the appropriate level of support for your scheduling and academic needs, let's explore each of them further.

In a San Jose GMAT course, you take the academic reigns into your own hands. You don't have to wait for someone else to tell you what to do or where to go because you instantly gain access to our powerful diagnostic assessment, which can identify areas you on which you need to focus. You can then jump right into the appropriate on-demand lesson available in our extensive learning library. As you move through the modules, you can come back to the diagnostic test to evaluate your progress and help you refine your preparation efforts. Of course, we still provide you with powerful instructional support with this option. If you run into a problem area, you will have regular opportunities to ask questions and have them answered by an instructor. If you're a self-starter and highly motivated when working on your own but still want the instructional support of a professional when you need it, a San Jose GMAT course may be your best solution.

When you enroll in a San Jose GMAT class, you will enjoy a full academic immersion into a digital classroom setting. Over six weeks you will receive 36 hours of live instruction from an instructor who scored in the 99th percentile of GMAT testers. This format gives you ample opportunity to engage with your instructor and receive real-time feedback as well as bounce ideas off other students. If you know you thrive in a community setting and don't do as well working on your own, a San Jose GMAT class can give you the structure and social support you need to stay focused and on target for working towards achieving your testing goals.

Regardless of whether you prefer the instructional setup of our courses or our live classes, you have the additional opportunity to receive personalized instruction when you choose to combine them with private tutoring. This option gives you all of the benefits associated with our self-paced courses or our live classes along with targeted personal instruction from a skilled tutor who can answer your questions in greater depth. Tutoring packages are ideal for those individuals who want to accelerate their preparations or who simply want more personalized attention as part of their program of study.

Why should I choose Veritas Prep for my GMAT review?

If your ultimate goal is to become a leader in your field, you will need to have the confidence to choose resources along the way that can facilitate your climb to the top. Veritas Prep offers elite San Jose GMAT prep course solutions for those individuals who want to take their efforts to the next level. We provide several GMAT preparation support solutions to match your schedule, learning style, and academic needs. When you register for a San Jose GMAT Course or Live Class, you gain the advantage of working with an elite instructor who scored in the top 99th percentile of GMAT testers. Having the guidance and support of someone who was able to successfully implement the advice they will share with you is an invaluable resource, especially for this type of high stakes test.

Not only do you gain instant access to a host of learning tools and a skilled instructor as part of your San Jose GMAT course, but you also have the opportunity to practice taking assessments which use adaptive learning technology. Practicing with this kind of technology is the kind of real-world practice you can't get from studying on your own. As the computer-based assessment uses your answers to inform the selection of the next question you are given, you will get a feel for what you will face on the GMAT.

We understand and respect the amount of work and dedication it has taken you to reach this point in your journey, and we would be honored to provide you with the academic support that could help you move closer to your next goal.

Jeff Yin loves helping his students develop skills that they can use to benefit themselves and others for the rest of their lives. He sees the preparation for the GMAT as a gateway to your future. On top of that, developing higher-order thinking skills will enable you to be more effective in life, no matter what you choose to do. Jeff so enjoys what he does so much, that if he was not teaching GMAT prep, he would most likely be a career coach helping people to find their path in life.
 
Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, this Harvard graduate and Ph.D. scientist is a pretty easy going guy - as long as he has access to bean and guacamole burritos. When he was 10 years old, he idolized Carl Sagan and wanted to be an astronomer just like him. We think he’s done alright with the direction that he chose!

David Newland sees himself not simply as someone conveying information and content but as a coach as well. As he explains, “The students that I work with need more than knowledge, they need to be able to perform to the best of their abilities on test day and it is my pleasure to help them do it!” As a competitor both in athletics and debate his whole life, he could choose to focus on his own successes of which he’s had many, but David finds a greater pride and joy in learning of the triumphs of his students. He truly relishes hearing from students he’s worked with that they have gotten their goal score or into their dream program. So if you’re fortunate enough to work with David, please be sure to let him know when the same happens for you.
 
Despite all the accomplishments, David did suffered one somewhat traumatic blow early in life. “I put together a song and dance number for the third-grade school talent show and the music teacher required me to lip synch so that no one would have to hear me sing. My dreams of a music career were shattered.”
 
Born and raised in Independence, Missouri, David earned his JD from Michigan and MA and BA from Truman University and now enjoys living in the beauty of Vermont. In fact, inspired by the Green Mountain state’s quiet, open roads, he’s now considering getting a motorcycle so that he can drive very slowly on the deserted roads of the early mornings. Might just be a great chance to sing out loud as you go, David.

Real reviews

Could I have scored 700+ without David? Probably not
I paid for 28 hours of online tutoring with Veritas Prep. I was assigned David Newland as my instructor. It was the best money I could have spent. Within six weeks of working with David, I scored 770 and 760 on the GMAT Prep Software PP1 and PP2 tests. On the real exam I scored 700 (90%), comprising Quant 47 (73%) and Verbal 39 (88%). The drop between the PP tests and the real test was mostly due to nerves and bad time management on the day. Could I have scored 700+ without David? Probably not given I only had six weeks to prepare. David was excellent. With 8+ years of GMAT experience he knows how to solve every question the test can throw at you. He explained methodology in a clear and easy to apply fashion. He was also flexible and we could frequently schedule sessions on short notice.

This guy is smart and really knows the GMAT inside and out
Got so lucky to get David Newland as my instructor. I went into the course more confident in quant, and David is a verbal expert, specifically in Critical Reasoning. This guy is smart and really knows the GMAT inside and out, which was helpful since I had never taken the exam before. I could hear his voice inside my head as I did practice problems and during the actual GMAT.

David was excellent.
The instructor David was excellent. I found that he took the time to explain each section properly and in easy to understand language. I very much enjoyed this course and would recommend it to any one with a very hectic schedule.

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!
