"I taught Veritas Prep course in Bangalore, India but was hired without any interviews and even though I had not taken the actual GMAT. Chad Troutwine who spoke to me on Skype from his LA office told me that I should not disclose to anyone that I had not taken the GMAT and should pretend that I had scored 99th percentile scores. I was given a video by local affiliate and told to view it and then was ready to go. I then left for Australia to pursue my Master's degree and tried to teach GMAT in Sydney. But Veritas prep had another instructor in Sydney who had not taken the GMAT either but is still teaching the courses for Veritas Prep. Veritas Prep is a total fraud. I would warn you against picking Veritas Prep GMAT course. -- Inder"
