I tried the e-GMAT course after having (or at least tried to) go through books.
e-GMAT courses - As a working professional, I found that the online resources are much better. I never thought I would say this, even after sitting in front of a computer for the better part of the day however they are much more tolerable on weekdays and one can easily spend 90 minutes on them. The egmat courses are really nice. Their SC meaning based approach does a much better job of tackling SC than MGMAT does. You retain much more as well. Prethinking and Bold Face in CR is very good too. For RC, this is the first real course that taught something. Overall, the live sessions compliment the leanings in the course very well.
In addition, I also looked at economist GMAT and Grockit. The both have a number of practice questions. Although the explanations in Economist GMAT were better, Grockit was free for me and complemented the e-GMAT course well.
One of the downside of online resources is that they don't work well on Tablets. Hence, you cant take them outside.
The best thing that I liked about this course is focus on fundamentals. It did not teach me tricks. After going through the course, I was able to solve most official questions easily. Moreover, I was confident of my answers in GMAT Prep question pack 1 - something which I was not after going through the MGMAT books.
