Why you’ll love Veritas Prep:

INSTRUCTORS

My instructor was the best professor I've ever had my academic career. If only the Ivy's can live up to his standards, then I will surely be satisfied. He strikes a perfect balance of rigor, communication, and support.
-Joseph M.

CURRICULUM

I used to think the GMAT was 90% knowledge and 10% strategy. By the end of the course, I had come to realize that the reverse is actually true!
-Michael B.

RESOURCES

The course materials set up the content in an easily digestible format and allowed me to slowly build up competencies. I'm confident I could not have prepared for the test as comprehensively on my own
-Jonathan P.

RETAKE

Veritas has pleasantly surpassed my high expectations. Retaining a full year of online resources and the privilege to retake the course at a later time has proven immeasurably valuable to my journey.

Hear all about their experience taking the Veritas Prep course.

At its core, the GMAT is written to give business schools a sense of how well an applicant would fare in their program. It contains a total of four sections, each of which highlights a specific skill set you'll need in the business world. Needless to say, you should make sure to do the best you can on the GMAT if you need to include your score on an application. Studying on your own is one way to go, but many working professionals opt to invest in a Tempe GMAT prep course so that they receive expert assistance. Business school admissions are highly competitive, and you don't want to overlook anything that could give you an edge.

What Material Is Covered on the GMAT?

The GMAT's four sections are the Analytical Writing Assessment, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Verbal Reasoning. The exam is administered on a computer, and test-takers have the freedom to choose one of three different sequences in which they'll tackle the exam. For example, a student who excels in mathematics may wish to begin with the Quantitative Reasoning section to build their self-confidence, while others might want to get their essay out of the way first. Here is a comprehensive breakdown on the material you will see on exam day, sorted by section.

1. Analytical Writing Assessment

The GMAT Analytical Writing Assessment is a 30-minute essay requiring students to evaluate an argument. The content may not be business-related, and you will not need any prior knowledge of the material in order to compose your essay. Your essay is scored on a scale from 0-6 by a combination of electronic and human graders in areas such as topical analysis, syntactic variety, organization, grammar, and how well you understand the argument you're evaluating.

It may seem counterintuitive to use some of the precious time available to you outlining your response, but doing so probably saves you time in the long run. Not only does working from an outline give you a road map to follow so that you remember to include everything you planned, but it can also help ensure that you present your case in a logical manner for readers to follow. If you aren't in the habit of outlining your work, you can review the process in a Tempe GMAT class to improve your study skills.

2. Integrated Reasoning

The GMAT Integrated Reasoning section measures your ability to apply what you have learned in school to real-world problems. You have half an hour to answer 12 questions, but each question has multiple steps that make them more complicated than the average multiple-choice question. Your score ranges from 1-8 on this section. Some of the question types you might see include multi-source reasoning, two-part analysis, table analysis, and graphic interpretation.

Most Integrated Reasoning questions have no obvious corollary on exams you may have taken in the past, making for an unfamiliar testing experience. For instance, you may be asked to sort the data in a spreadsheet for a table analysis question, or use both text and graphical sources to glean enough information to solve a multi-source reasoning problem. If you take a formal Tempe GMAT course, you could get an opportunity to experience what this is like in advance of your actual testing date.

3. Quantitative Reasoning

The test's Quantitative Reasoning section measures your mathematical ability, logic, and data analysis. It consists of 31 multiple-choice questions that you have a total of 62 minutes to answer. This section is scored from 0-60, though the vast majority of test-takers fall into the range from 6-51. The questions in the Quantitative Reasoning section may be viewed in two distinct categories: problem-solving and data sufficiency.

Problem-solving questions measure your logical and analytical thinking skills. They serve to give business school admissions departments an idea of your readiness to perform in a professional setting. If you have taken standardized math tests in the past, you probably already have a good sense of what to expect here.

The data sufficiency questions are a little bit different. They measure your ability to analyze a problem as well as its relevant data points, asking you not to answer a question but rather when you have been given enough information to determine the answer. If you try to answer before you have enough information to do so, your conclusion may prove incorrect. In the real world, if you overanalyze it and gather too much info, somebody else may have already acted on your conclusion before you. Investing in a Tempe GMAT prep course can help you determine when you have enough data to tackle a problem without wasting time on superfluous research.

4. Verbal Reasoning

The GMAT's Verbal Reasoning section consists of 36 multiple-choice questions over 65 minutes and is scored the same way the Quantitative section is. There are three primary skills tested: reading comprehension, critical reasoning, and sentence completions.

The reading comprehension questions assess how well you understand the information presented in provided reading passages, while the critical reasoning section evaluates your ability to create and evaluate an argument or plan of action. Both involve quickly ascertaining what a passage is saying, so your Tempe GMAT course may tackle these areas together. For instance, you might learn how to take notes as you go along to retain more of the information you read.

The exam's sentence completion questions measure your command of the mechanics of written English. If you remember the grammar tests you took in high school or college, the formatting should feel pretty familiar. Effective communication is paramount in the business world, so your Tempe GMAT course will likely do a thorough review of these concepts.

What GMAT Test Prep Packages are Available to Me?

Veritas Prep offers a variety of test prep options that you can mix and match to create the best possible experience for you. Tempe GMAT course materials such as interactive video lessons and practice exams are accessible anytime, putting you in complete control over when and where you study. Better yet, everything can be streamed or downloaded on your desktop, laptop, iPad, or iPhone for maximal convenience. You also receive access to regular homework help to answer any questions that arise while using your Tempe GMAT course materials.

All Veritas Prep practice exams also utilize the same CAT (Computer-Adaptive Testing) technology that the real GMAT uses. It sounds complicated, but it just means that the system selects your next question based on how you fared on the previous ones. This can be nerve-wracking if a question you find easy has you second-guessing your previous responses, so you might want to go over how to concentrate on the question in front of you during a Tempe GMAT prep course as part of your GMAT preparation.

If you feel that you need more assistance than self-study materials can provide, you might want a Live Class. Each Tempe GMAT class is taught by an instructor who earned a score in the 99th percentile when they took the GMAT, so they definitely know what you should concentrate on. Veritas Prep also offers multiple sessions simultaneously, making it easier for working professionals to find one that suits their busy schedule. Perhaps most importantly, all classes take place in an innovative online classroom that facilitates real-time interaction with your classmates and instructor without the hassle of commuting. Every Live Class also includes access to the self-study Tempe GMAT course materials to help you make the most of study time between sessions.

Each class dives into the GMAT sections and the academic topics you need to learn, but what if you need to spend more time on one section than the others? In this scenario, one-on-one tutoring may be for you. A private instructor allows you to concentrate on your unique areas of opportunity while studying at your own pace. Depending on the package you choose, you also get the Tempe GMAT prep course materials or a Live Class to compliment your personalized instruction.

Why Should I Work with Veritas Prep?

Veritas Prep can help students of all ages and ability levels prepare for the GMAT. Whether you want to study on your own, learn directly from an expert, work in a one-on-one environment, or any combination of these, Veritas Prep can set you up with the tools you need to pursue educational success.

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.

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!
