With so much information available on GMAT, I did not know where to start. I decided to take GMAT after I resigned my job after 12 years to prepare to welcome my 2nd baby to this world. I ordered Official guide and started solving questions between July and Dec 2015 randomly juggling between my 2 young kids and studying. Most of the times I would get the problem right, but the timing per question was not right.

I tried giving GMAT mock test in Dec and scored a 470. Then I re-solved the official guide and I thought I was good to book a date for exam. When I took another mock exam again in Jan end, the score was again 490. So what went wrong? What happened to my effort put into solving the official guide. This meant, I essentially did not have an approach to solve the problem.

This is when I decided to buy the e-gmat course after going through some reviews. I first bought the quant. This is good for people like me who are scoring around Q25-30 in mock. Just studying this material will give u nearly 10-15 point improvement in quant taking the score to at least Q40-Q45. To score beyond this, you will need material from gmat club, for topics like overlapping sets , co-ordinate geometry etc. I would highly recommend e-gmat quant material, if you are scoring in the range or 30.

The verbal material from e-gmat also is very good. It helped me push my verbal score from V 19 to V30. I think the pre thinking and meaning analysis approach is what gives the advantage. They teach from the basics which makes the foundation strong. The material is divided into small sections, so it helps avoid information overload as we can take a logical break after 1 chapter. I highly recommend this material. Sentence Correction and CR material is excellent. RC material can be improved to discuss a little more on the types of passages.


With this e-gmat material, I prepared from Mar to May and gave my GMAT on May 26. I scored 610, nearly a 120 point improvement. I am certainly happy with my progress though I know this score will not take me anywhere.

I took a break and have just started preparing for my 2nd attempt due in Oct. This time I hope to score the magical 700. My revision of verbal has taken my score to V35 in mock! Waiting to revise my quant material. Will keep you posted on how my actual exam goes.

Hi Folks!! I am Zuri, from India, in my first attempt I scored 550 on GMAT 42 in quant & 24 in Verbal, I had used manhattan SC guide, Powerscore CR bible along with OG. These are amazing resources, especially SC guide which has an extensive list of rules that come in handy in identifying the flaw in sentences. I was able to get through with the easy & some medium level questions. However, I couldn't get many hard level questions right & when I saw a sentence which was too long and/or fully underlined, i would be kinda demotivated, which would bring my morale down because I felt SC was the easiest section for me in verbal. I would take more time for CR as well, especially assumption questions & boldface. RC was a nightmare, even in my preps & the actual GMAT I wouldn't have enough time to finish all my verbal questions, so I made it a point that for one of the RC passages I would guess & mark the answers so that i can match the time to answer all the questions.
I decided to try e-gmat Verbal Live Prep because I had seen some reviews about this Verbal course as the best for non-natives. After going through the SC course, I was overwhelmed. The 3-step process is an eye-opener. After understanding the meaning of the sentence & applying the steps in the right away i was able to reduce my "takt time" or turnaround time for every SC question and also I could get most of the even hardest questions right. Its a very comprehensive course covering all the concepts to the depth.
CR course with emphasis on logical structure, prediction, ABC test, negation test, variance test is very strategic & helped me to counter assumptions & most difficult CR passages with ease & save a lot of time too. Finally I could get a hang over RC as well with the systematic reading strategies in the RC course. RC was the most difficult section for me and now I can boldly face it with active reading. The live sessions were very useful with very friendly instructors having great insight & amazing expertise in that particular area. Live session Recordings were also very useful for me as I could go through it whenever required, many times. For every question/query, I could find answers within the exhaustive question banks/blog & also found quick responses from instructors whenever needed. Verbal workshops were accurate predictors of our stand. I have not taken my GMAT again yet, I see a score improvement in my verbal though, in manhattan prep tests i could score 34-36 & in GMAT prep test I could score 32 in a consistent manner, which helped me touch 640 in manhattan & 610 in GMAT prep tests with only verbal score improvement and same quant score. I had also enrolled for two other major GMAT Prep courses as well & attended some free sessions from other courses too and from my experience E-gmat Verbal Live Prep Is the best I can suggest for anybody looking for a breakthrough in GMAT Verbal.

Most of the GMAT takers from India struggle with the verbal section. After exploring on internet I enrolled for E-GMAT verbal course. I bet this is the best Verbal course available for the Non-natives. The way concepts are explained, it help in building a good base. Also what I liked the most is they have categorized the question types in each section and embedding explanation for each question type.
Any doubts were clarified . In all I should say a must for GMAT verbal. I am still to take the actual GMAT again , but now I am confident and in the CATs , I can see the improvement.

I came across e-GMAT through various reviews in Gmatclub forum. I was initially confused between crackverbal and e-GMAT and finally decided to go with e-GMAT after attending one of Rajat's webminars. The course starts with very basics of verbal concepts (subjects & verbs) and goes deep in each of the topic well. Each video starts with a pre assessment to assess your existing skill level and then the concept videos. Finally, there will be an application file where they test you and score your skill learned through the concept videos. If it is below the acceptable grade, then they will suggest you to redo the concepts. There is an additional section for each of the concept which gives selected OG questions related to each of the concept taught. This provides a grip of the topic and how it will be tested in real GMAT.

The methodology is perfect and the concept videos were very clear. Though I couldn't boost so much of my verbal score in real GMAT, whatever I have achieved is mainly due to their course. When my subscription ended about 20 days before the actual exam, I wrote to them asking for an extension. They were kind enough to extend the access to the course for another 3 weeks without any additional cost. I really appreciate their effort to stay supportive till the exam. I found the scholarannium really helpful to identify where exactly we are lacking.

I really recommend the course for non-natives to build strong concepts in verbal.

Enrolling into the e-gmat verbal online score was the best decision during my journey of BeatTheGMAT. Quant has always been my strength, but I was struggling a lot with the Verbal section. I had gone through the Manhattan Verbal guides, GMAT club grammar, OG questions, and Kaplan verbal; my score could not go beyond the 30s, though these materials helped me a lot to reach a score of V35 from V25. Nonetheless, I wanted to be in the 90+ percentile and getting that score seemed daunting till I got access to e-gmat.

I started with the SC section. The foundation built with the extensive practice material, from both OG and others, helped improve my confidence in Verbal. For CR as well, I could build a strong foundation on the concepts with the help of e-gmat. The subtle difference it provides on validity of which statements can be questioned and that of which can not be, saved me from the trap answers that I was falling into most of the times.

It would be an understatement if I only say the scholaranium is a good resource. The practice I could do by keeping a timer in the watch definitely can not match with the real practice session that I could do in scholaranium. It provides a real-time exam mode experience. Daily, I used to do some problems from the scholaranium, choosing the number of questions according to the time availability, and doing so really helped me to increase my score as time management was a critical issue I faced during exams for Verbal.

And finally I reached V40 - the 90+ percentile range !!!

I liked the course a lot. The course material helped me to understand the concepts. The question bank associated with it helped me to apply these same concepts and pretty much internalize the material. I recommend this course to whoever is taking the exam. Also, e-GMAT provided me the prompt help on the questions I had on the material.

Before subscribing to the online course work I had doubts about the effectiveness of the online learning. But, the instructional videos are so detail, and they simplify the concepts by simplifying the complexity. And, each video has quizzes which helped me solidify the understanding. The questions in the question bank are excellent as they test these concepts thoroughly. Each video lesson has a forum where people can ask questions by sharing their understanding. Instructors promptly responded to all my questions.

I recommend the coursework who are planning to take the e-GMAT.

This is the best course to start from the scratch, nice content, ease of use and with lot of practice. I highly recommend this courses. Earlier, i spent too much time learning so many grammar rules.
For RC, I couldn’t comment too much on it, as I believe for this particular section everyone’s reading strategy will be different. A thing to note is that there are a couple videos where we can follow the reading and thinking process of the instructor in answering the questions, and I believe these videos were pretty helpful.

Also-prethinking helps a lot to stay focused all the time

If you are reading this post of mine, I might strongly assume that you are aspiring to take the GMAT exam & indeed hoping to crack it. Before you start reading this , let me tell you, confusion regarding how to start, which course to take is natural, but if you are confused whether to take the e-GMAT Verbal course, don't be any more --you are at the right place. I had been in your shoes 6 months back when I joined e-GMAT. After a lot of struggle, finally I had made up my mind to take the GMAT exam within 2 months. My target was a score of 760 so that I can apply & get selected in Stanford last round this year itself (after all, what's wrong in dreaming) After doing a lot of research, taking suggestions from friends & colleagues & going through the reviews at GMAT club & across the Internet, I managed to confuse myself to the best of my abilities regarding which course to register for - e-GMAT or GMAT-pill. I got few negative feedback as well which only succeeded in adding to my confusion. After pondering for 2 days, I decided to attend my first e-GMAT free live session. The session was on CR Pre-thinking & absolutely clean bowled was I! Approx. 150 plus students had joined the session & I was amused by the way each & every questions were handled by the e-GMAT teachers. I believe that it was a life-changer for me as it made me take one of the most important decisions of my life --buying the e-GMAT Verbal Live Prep course (the dream began to take shape!).
The very first thing I would like to mention regarding the Verbal Live Prep (there's also another Verbal course called Verbal Online) is that the content is huge -- and as they rightly claim - You don't need any other resource. Honestly, if you complete the course, study materials & attend the live classes & religiously follow all the instructions regarding studying & application & attending OG questions, you really DO NOT need any other resource. Atleast, I didn't.
The CR classes are mind-blowing, all the teachers are amazingly student-friendly, especially Shradhha is awesome. When Shraddha taught, she never looked at the watch and would continue to explain until all portions were crystal clear. She exceeded the time limit of 2 hours each time and each of her classes were outstanding. This If you are starting afresh for the GMAT journey, these live sessions really get you on track. The SC course is amazing as well; however my score has been a bit less in this section since I was unable to imbibe the process of breaking a sentence into its clauses & following the subject-verb agreement, meaning analysis rules in those chunks. It was taking me a lot of time to internalize the process & as I was in a hurry to take the GMAT exam to be able to apply by March, I decided to skip that method. I believe my score of 38 in Verbal is due to this issue.
The RC course is also quite good & together with the live classes & proper step-by-step guidance to solve the OG questions(video solutions to OG questions), the Verbal Live prep is sensational. I took the Official GMATPrep tests and scored 720 in each of them. Finally, I took my GMAT in March 2016 after studying for around 2 months & scored 720. I researched a lot regarding application to top B-schools with this score & also discussed with a Consultant, who has suggested me to improve my score to a 760 in order to dream BIG. When I informed e-GMAT regarding this & said that I am planning to take the GMAT exam again soon & requested them to extend my course, Rajat has promised me to extend the course for 3 months free of cost. In today's age of cut-throat commercialization, I was pleasantly surprised to see such friendly & non-commercial approach, where the extension was not charged for.
I strongly recommend this e-GMAT Verbal Live Prep course to anybody who wants to conquer the GMAT. Last but not the least, one thing I would like to mention regarding the 4 point score improvement guarantee of e-GMAT. Since I started preparation, I had been scoring approx. 32 to 34 in all the mock tests & practice quiz. However, once I completed the e-GMAT course, my Verbal score has improved to 38 in the actual GMAT exam. In fact, I had scored 38 and 40 in verbal in GMATPrep1 and GMATPrep2 respectively. I strongly believe that next time when I will be taking the GMAT again, if I can follow the e-GMAT techniques religiously, I will definitely be able to score 42+ in Verbal which will definitely help a lot in transforming my dream of getting into an elite business school into reality. I will definitely come back with another post after the re-take to inform if I did succeed and that day, my review will be a lengthier one, that's for sure! Stay tuned & all the very best!:-)

This review is for: e-GMAT Verbal Online

Couple of key points need to be reiterated before I start (Did not take these into consideration for the initial 2 mocks):
1. Do not ignore the Official guides, they are extremely helpful.
2. Do not go without giving proper mocks
3. Ensure you're able to function at 100 % during the examination hours

For the course review, I want to highlight that this course is going to be extremely helpful to you in case you're a non-native speaker and verbal is your achilles heel. This was the case for me and my fundamentals for grammar were extremely weak (specifically SC). The 1st GMAT ESR report confirmed the same, that is, my weak areas were DS in Quants and SC in Verbal. For sentence correction, I needed a course that I could do on my own (full time job with variable timings across regions makes it really difficult to join a course and weekends are sometimes working as well). This is where E-GMAT Verbal Online course came in to the picture with the excellent reviews and the option of being completely online which enabled me to complete the course in any way I wanted.

The course is very well structured and covers the basic fundamentals. It also ensures that students are aware of the correct methodology to solving problems and how we can bucket these into various types. After a topic is covered, it has a set of relevant OG questions for the topic. This was the best approach because I was extremely confident of tackling SC questions in the scholaranium as well as the mocks I gave post completion of any SC section.

Honestly, a 110 point improvement was more than what I had expected, which was primarily due to the:
1) interactive nature of the course
2) In-depth explanations provided
3) Quality of questions
4) Flexibility of creating our own tests by
a. Level of difficulty
b. Topics, and
c. Time limits (among other things).
These were further complimented by the dashboard summary which proved to be extremely helpful to me in tracking what was pending for me to tackle.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is looking for an improvement in Verbal section (SC, CR and RC). The prethinking approach to CR questions is also quite good and ensures maximum efficiency and accuracy while solving CR questions.
