Veritas Prep also offers a free SAT book.
Veritas Prep offers a wide selection of services. They offer private tutoring and on-demand, live online, and in-person courses.

Additionally, customers who are dissatisfied with an assigned tutor can request a different tutor after their first session.
They also offer admissions counseling. Veritas offers tools and advice for students applying to college. Customers can speak to advisors. They also specifically offer one-on-one coaching for MBA applicants.
Veritas Prep allows customers to retake a course for free once within 12 months of initial purchase. They also offer a full refund within seven days of purchase. Finally, they offer a money-back guarantee if a student’s score does not increase. This guarantee is valid for 90 days after the last class.
Veritas Prep only provides test preparation for four tests, the GMAT, GRE, SAT, and ACT. Students seeking courses for the MCAT, LSAT, or other tests will need to search for another company.
Veritas Prep’s prices depend on the service and test. For all tests, private tutoring from Veritas Prep is extremely expensive. GRE tutoring averages at $225 per hour, much higher than many competitors.
Their on-demand, live online, and in-person courses also are more expensive than competitors. In-person and live courses are the most expensive; the GRE live online courses are $849. Self-study courses are less expensive, the SAT course costs $424, but are still higher than many other companies.
Live online courses for each test are available throughout the country; however, Veritas Prep’s in-person courses are not available everywhere. Potential customers can verify availability by entering their zip code on Veritas Prep’s website.
