Even though I had put in a lot of effort in understanding the concepts from books and practicing from the OG, my score on mocks was constantly fluctuating. I approached e-GMAT one month before my exam and then decided to defer my exam by a month, giving myself two months with the course. Even though I could not achieve my target score on the main exam, e-GMAT courses gave me the confidence of scoring a certain minimum score of the verbal section.

Strengths:

1)The course literally takes all the three areas(SC,RC,CR), breaks them down into elementary pieces and then builds your skills from bottom to top.

2) Strategies for RC are explained in much more detail than any other blog/forum/course.

3) The way that the course approaches pre-thinking for CR questions is unique. It helped me a lot by improving my skills at quickly shortlisting 2 out of the 5 answers choices as candidates.

4) Detailed answers to all the questions, both from the course and from the OG, were a jackpot!

4) Scholarnium is a brilliant tool for practice. Both the quality and quantity of content in scholarnium is unmatched! I wish I would have started using this tool earlier (Started using it only two weeks before the exam).

Weaknesses:

1) Results of the answers to the questions that appear at the end of every video file are not a very good representation of your capabilities in that they use a very few questions to determine one's ability. For example, many times there would be just two questions at the end of a video file, and if I answer 1/2 wrong I would get to see strong statements such as 'With such a skill level, you might not be able to score in 30s in verbal'.

2) Text based solutions were as good as video based solutions. However, if given an option, I would bet my complete money on text based solutions because they are a huge time-saver! I request the team to make text based solutions for all the video based solutions as well.

I highly recommend e-gmat verbal online course. It clears your basic concepts on problem solving approach, thereby improving your time to solve the problems. Each concept of SC is very well explained in detail. Problem solving approach explained in RC and CR section really helped me boost my confidence and improve time solving the quetions.
In my first attampt, I scored 610 (v28, q45) and I realized I need to work on my verbal part. After checking reviews for every other courses for verbal, I finally decided to go for e-gmat verbal online. It definitely improved my verbal skill and its worth every single penny.

At first, I purchased only the SC course because I was very impressive with the trial content. I then upgraded to Verbal Online, mainly to get access to the Scholaranium, and finally upgraded to Verbal Live after not being able to get 700 after 2 tests. I used the course for my first 3 attempts, improving from 640 to 660 to 680. But I do not really attribute these improvements to this course. Here are my reviews for each component:

- SC: among the best courses about SC. If you cannot understand grammar “jargon” such as gerunds, preposition, adverb…, you will gain many benefits from SC course. The approach of eGMAT SC is meaning-based, which is very good for understanding why one choice is correct while others are incorrect. The negative side is that this approach is really time-consuming. I struggled to reduce the time per question to under 1m30s but not successfully, even after many practices. Finally, I combined this approach with the approach from other prep company and this worked, helping me so much in saving time for CR and RC.

- CR: nothing too special. The content is quite similar to what CR Bible has. You may find the content livelier than reading Bible book, but it did not work for me.

- RC: I did not learn much about RC. The content is a bit boring, and I kept using my own way which is to read The Economist and to take notes.

- Scholaranium: At first, I saw it very useful. There are a lot of analyses here, and they helped me understand where I need to improve. But the quality of questions is far away from official questions of GMAC. My scores in Scholaranium, especially in SC, were very good, but I could not did well in official questions and real exams. I think that the questions in Scholaranium were tailored to match to the contents in eGMAT’s course. My advice is to use its analytic tools to know the strengths and weaknesses, but to not work on these questions too much.

- Live workshops: They are somewhat useful to help learners understand the contents and clear confusions, but I think it is not worth paying much money to upgrade from Verbal Online to Verbal Live just in order to have these workshops.

I have always been bad when it comes to my command over English. (though, I still feel same). I was fortunate that I came to GMATClub and after reading various Debrief of club member sharing their GMAT journey and how e-gmat has helped them, I attended e-gmat webinar and I liked how Payal approached the questions, then there was no second thought and thus, I enrolled for GMAT prep. After going through the online interactive videos, I started feeling comfortable with GMAT Verbal, but there was still a lag, therefore after reading so many debriefs on Verbal Live Prep, I decided to enroll in Verbal Live. That very decision led to score 710 in real GMAT. Basically, Live classes helped me approach the problems and I replicated the same approach in every approached problem. Initially, time was my concern, but as I kept on following the e-gmat approach to tackle questions, I was able to finish the questions in time.
I have used e-gmat sources, GMAT OG Guides and GMAT club Maths Test.
I started using scholarnium which further boosted my confidence. The questions were very much similar to tried OG questions and I felt that many of them tested me in the same way that Official Guide questions did.
The way Scholarnium gave the statistics, it helped me target my weak area and hence further confidence to solve the problems.

I want to thank e-gmat and gmatclub for the score I had.

e-gmat verbal prep is an excellent course for anyone who wants to improve on there verbal score. Key features of the score:
1) The course is detailed-covers all the topics of GMAT verbal.
2) Breaking down a verbal problem and solving the problem step by step is one of the key features. I found this feature helpful in the exam, as the verbal is the last section that you attempt in the exam, so when you encounter a big RC or complex SC or CR, this particular technique helps you a lot.
3) The course is designed in such a way that you will be able to learn and apply the concepts on the official questions as you progress through the entire course. By the end of the course you would have finished all most all the questions form the official guide.
4) The course covers all the tricks that GMAT uses on the test.
5) Expert analysis on almost all official question.
6) Huge question bank(800+ questions), covers all the topics tested on e-gmat. Detailed analysis of all the questions. If you practice these questions then breaking the gmat problem becomes a very easy task.

I would recommend this course to anyone who is struggling with gmat verbal, especially non native speakers.

Helped me score from 49 to a perfect 51. Each and every section is very well divided and organised. Whole course is divided into 5 major sections. Every section has individual topics. Each topic will have a separate test. Every topic also has a advanced test which is very useful if you're aiming for a high score. I was at 49 and never thought I could get 51. I only managed to score 50 in all my mocks. But e-gmat quant is definately tougher than the actual quant and if you practise this you'll definately get a very good score in actual score. A must have.

Loved every part of it. Amazing course specially for non-natives. Specially loved the structured approach of the whole course and testing at very step of the preparation.
SC: SC rules are very comprehensive. You can solve any official problem using the techniques taught. After going through a few time you can easily remember the rules. Grammatical jargaon has been kept away.
CR: Pre thinking is the key. Divided very equally and is great for practise and improving your overall accuracy.
RC: Good techniques specially for non-natives. Step by step each thing is very clearly taught and explained.
Overall I would give it a thumbs up. A five start course. You don;t need anything else once you take this course.

Hi,

I gave gmat on 13-feb-2016 before joining the e-gmat verbal course. i scored 670. quant 49 verbal 33. In enhanced report my scores were:-
SC-41
RC:-38
CR:- 23
I had a very bad CR score.
The problems i faced withe CR is i used to take more time than required and wasn't able to fully understand the passage. So when i was confused in b/w two choices i had to make a wild guess.
But after joining e-gmat verbal prep I can see a considerable improvement in my CR skills. I'm able to understand the passage well thanks to LOGICAL STRUCTURE and also able to get the correct answer choice thanks to PRE-THINKING.
I have scheduled my exam for 14-Sept-2016 hope to score well this time.

Thanks,
Aayush Srivastava

When I first took my mock tests I realized that I was very weak at the data sufficiency questions (which I then realized was the case with many people). Problem solving part was okay for me but even that used to take too much time, which I discovered after taking a few quant sessions.

Rajat is really interactive in his teaching style and the methods taught by him are very easy to understand and nothing is a cramming job anymore. You can just think logical to arrive at the right answer rather than to apply formulas everywhere.

My quant score improved a lot after I took up this course with e-GMAT and would really recommend this course if you want to have a grip at the quant section with an easy understanding.

I recently got done with my GMAT exam and ended up with a score of 740 (Q-49, V-41). I owe a big part of my success to the e-GMAT team who helped in raising my verbal score from 33-34 to 38-41.

A brief background- I am an Indian by origin, a consultant by profession and a holder of Masters degree in Economics. I recently became a mom and therefore, decided to take a sabbatical from work. During this break, I revisited my dream to pursue MBA and decided to use this time to crack GMAT. Being a mother to a toddler who needs my constant attention, I wanted a course that would give me the flexibility to study at my own pace. Reading about e-GMATon GMATClub, I did not have to think much and signed up for the Verbal Online course.

Researching about various courses on the internet, I gained a fair knowledge about what each course was offering. And while, a lot of courses were very similar to each other in terms of SC rules and CR pre-thinking approach, one thing that set e-GMAT apart was its step-wise approach to each and every question in the verbal section. This helped me a lot as this eliminated a lot of guess work for me. Using this methodical approach, whenever I picked the answer choice, I knew my reasons for it. Moreover, one of the most important key take-aways from e-GMAT course was that it made me think from the examiner's point of view and made me aware of the common traps that GMAT lays down. This greatly influenced my accuracy rate.

In conclusion, e-GMAT is surely worth every penny and every second of time. It provides you with the best opportunity to improve your score. All you need is diligence and sincerity to follow and practise the course work.
