Why take the GMAT?

The Graduate Management Admission Test, or GMAT, is a standardized exam that is commonly taken by individuals who are in the process of applying to schools offering an MBA program. You may be required to take a test like the GMAT before you can finalize your application at the business schools you're most interested in attending. A strong score on the GMAT could be a factor that may help you get accepted at the schools you apply to. That's because business schools often look at an applicant's GMAT score as a means of determining whether or not that individual would be successful at this academic level.

In that sense, you may take the GMAT as a means of completing your application process, with the hopes of improving your chances of admission, or for both of these reasons. Of course, getting a strong score on this exam can be a challenging thing to do without any guidance. That's why Veritas Prep offers a Scottsdale GMAT course along with several other GMAT preparation options. Keep reading for more information on this test and what we could do to help you study for it.

What's on the GMAT?

The GMAT has four test sections that you'll need to study. These sections are based on the skills of Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Integrated Reasoning, and Analytical Writing. You have some power to choose which order you take these test sections in, so be sure to consider the option that may be the best fit for you when you register to take your exam. In the following paragraphs, you'll find a breakdown of each of these sections and what you need to know while taking them.

Depending on the test order that you select, Analytical Writing may be the first part of your exam. You will be given 30 minutes to respond to one writing prompt in this section. After completion, you'll be given a grade that ranges from 0 to 6 based on a variety of factors. The structural and linguistic components of your essay will receive a computer-based score. Then, human evaluators will go over your writing to examine its quality, your ability to express your thoughts effectively, and the strength of the argument that you make.

If you sign up for something like a Scottsdale GMAT course, you can get help developing a strategy that you can utilize on this test section. Your instructor can spend some time showing you what an effective response looks like. They can help you develop your writing skills and give you sample prompts that you can respond to in order to get practice with the Analytical Writing test section. Get in touch with us today if you think you would benefit from taking a Scottsdale GMAT prep course.

Next, you may take the exam's Quantitative Reasoning section. This test section features 31 multiple-choice questions, which test-takers will have 62 minutes to answer. Your score on the Quantitative Reasoning section will range from 0 to 60. To perform well on this part of the test, you'll need to have strong problem solving and data sufficiency skills. You'll be asked to do things like identify relevant data and use logical reasoning and math skills to answer difficult questions.

The next part of the test focuses on Verbal Reasoning. Here, you'll be asked to answer 36 questions in 65 minutes. Again, this test section has a scoring scale that ranges from 0 to 60. On the Verbal Reasoning section, you'll need to demonstrate your skills in reading comprehension, critical reasoning, and sentence correction. This is another section where test-takers may benefit from working with a private test prep instructor.

Finally, the last section on the exam focuses on Integrated Reasoning. This test section features 12 questions that test-takers must answer within a 30-minute time limit. The work you do on this section will be graded on a scale from 1 to 8. To perform well, you'll need to demonstrate skills in graphics interpretation, table analysis, multi-source reasoning, and two-part analysis.

The GMAT is a challenging exam because doing well on it requires a variety of distinct academic skills. Each section's time limit also requires that test-takers complete their work efficiently or risk running out of time towards the end of a section. These factors can make the GMAT difficult to prepare for. However, you can get help studying for your upcoming exam when you contact us directly. We'd love to help you improve the quality of your study sessions.

What are the benefits of GMAT prep from Veritas Prep?

There are several different types of GMAT review to choose from when you sign up to get assistance from Veritas Prep. Some of the most popular review options are Live Classes, Courses, and Tutoring. Each of these preparation options has unique benefits that can supplement your study plan in different ways. This enables students to select the format that is the best fit for their individual academic preferences. Whatever option you ultimately decide on could help you get more out of your study sessions.

Taking a Scottsdale GMAT class is a good option for students who have previously had success in the traditional classroom learning environment. This is because classes replicate the classroom setting in a convenient online environment. You'll be able to interact with your instructor as well as with your classmates. With several distinct options to choose from, you can easily find a Scottsdale GMAT class that fits within the confines of your existing schedule. Classes are a great option because they give you the opportunity to learn from an educator who has taken the GMAT themselves and scored in the 99th percentile on it. 

You may also be interested in taking a Scottsdale GMAT course. Scottsdale GMAT prep courses feature a series of video lessons that are available to view on-demand. Each lesson will go over a different set of topics that you need to know before taking your upcoming exam. These lessons are interactive as well to help you remain engaged with the work that you're doing. A Scottsdale GMAT course could be the right option for you if you're someone who values flexibility in the studying process. If you sign up for a Scottsdale GMAT prep course, you'll be able to work through it at your own pace. The Scottsdale GMAT course you sign up for will also give you the option of working with a live instructor when you need extra help with a challenging topic.

Finally, if taking a Scottsdale course doesn't seem like the best option for you, then you may be interested in working with a GMAT tutor instead. Tutors provide their students with one-on-one instruction that can enhance the effectiveness of their study plans. Your instructor can create a customized lesson plan for you based on the specific GMAT topics that you're having the hardest time with. You can spend as much or as little time as you need on each test topic when you work with a private tutor.

How can I get started?

The GMAT is a difficult standardized test that plays an important role in the admissions process to MBA programs across the country. Earning a strong score on this exam could be just what you need to get into the program of your choice near the Scottsdale area. That's why it's vital that you have a strong test preparation plan in place when you begin preparing to take the GMAT.

Veritas Prep offers several different GMAT preparation plans to choose from, including taking a Scottsdale GMAT prep course.

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.

BA, University of Washington
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!
