Rajeevks: I am looking at GMATPill for their RC videos?

I will definitely check E-gmat videos on SC.

A quick update on the GMAT Pill program. I will write a more detailed review later but in summary, I would not recommend it for people who are scoring mid 600 and above. The videos give you a pretty good overview of the major concepts that you need to know for the GMAT, but if you're scoring mid 600 already, I don't think this would improve your score much. It does have some "700" level questions for practice, but you can get that from any prep materials (like the OG book for manhattan GMAT). So, unless you're struggling to grasp the main concepts, you should not spend the money on this program. You can probably get one pill instead of buying all 5 and see if you'll like it, but personally, I was already scoring low 700s, and did not benefit by watching the GMAT Pill videos.

I tried to get a refund because I was not satisfied with the program, but since I scored a 730 on the real GMAT, I was ineligible for a refund. They put a cap on your "original" score that is used to calculate your improvement after purchasing the program. Even though I was scoring 710 and 720 on my practice tests, 680 was my original score, and by their definition, my score improved by 50 points. However, I just checked the refund conditions page for details, but could not find anything about 680.

I just emailed him a last request for the refund pointing that out, so I'll update on how that goes.

Would you recommend the program for someone who is scoring in the upper 20’s in the verbal portion? I’m trying to improve my RC and CR.

Wow - you scored a 730 with GMAT Pill --and you want a refund? =P

That's pretty darn good. I think a lot of people here would be proud to get that score. Maybe GMATPill helped you in lots of subconscious ways that you didn't even notice =P I don't think there's any program to get you from 730 to 750 -that's like the difference between 1 question.

What score did you have to get in order to not ask for the refund? Like a 770 or something? I don't think anyone can guarantee that.

You know - there are a lot of stories of people in this forum getting 700+ on practice tests but then falling into the mid or low 600s. Practice tests do not necessarily = actual GMAT (Critical Reasoning logical fallacy!) And who knows, maybe if you didn't take GMAT Pill you could've been one of them.

Anyway - I don't think you'll get it, but goodluck!

No it was not because of the GMAT Pill. I was already scoring 720's on my mgmat CATs, and I wanted to get the highest score possible so I just tried the GMAT pill to see if I can get some boost, but when I watched all the lectures, it was stuff I already knew. This is why I'm saying this program would be good for anyone who's scoring mid 600 or below. Honestly, if anyone masters just the mgmat materials, 730 is very possible. Yea, we'll see about the refund but it was worth a try. I just told them my honest opinion so we'll see if I get it. Anyway, i think it was silly for me to think I can boost up my score 20-30 points with a short term program.
