I am a non-native and I scored 33 in Verbal and 48 in quant. I am targeting to reach 740+ on GMAT. I was struggling to find the right course for a very long time and after going through several reviews I opted for e-gmat's Quant & Verbal course. To be honest, I haven't gone through much of the quant section yet but have attempted few scholaranium ques and it gives me the feel that it would help me a lot in reaching 50-51 in Quant.

So far I have spent most of the time in going through verbal videos. I must say that it makes a huge difference in your approach and confidence to crack a big score in verbal. Speed was a major concern for me and after going though RC module, I find that not only speed but also accuracy has increased tremendously. I am highly impressed with their strategies to comprehend the passage.

Another area where the course is super helpful is to crack difficult CR questions. The way e-gmat teaches creating the logical structure, it helps to crack even the difficult ques easily. I have not gone through much of SC yet but it already gives me a feel that my experience with the SC section will be the same as it was for RC & CR sections. I will take my test on 12th Aug and write a detailed review about my journey to reach 740 +(yes, i am going to get this score) but all I can say is e-gmat is worth every single penny you spend on your preparation.

I have briefly used the course and I think it is valuable to teach you the tricks to study GMAT verbal content. I could see increase in the verbal section practice CAT scores. I used the course for CR and SC. The verbal scholaranium is very good.

The videos might seem boring though but use to your best advantage. The question bank is not too vast.

If you are using the course, please make sure you practice a lot till your real GMAT exam. Even if you know the tricks without practice you will use more time than what is recommended. I have to activate my subscription to study thoroughly till my exam.

After a lot of thought and research, i opted for this course. I would completely agree that this is the best verbal course for any non-native (used some trial versions and borrowed subscriptions from friends) . The course is well structured and nicely paced. It helped me build a solid ground for sentence correction as i well as critical reasoning. I wasn't much comfortable with the approach of reading comprehension as it was completely unlike what was used to, but after going through all the CR and SC videos twice, it provided me with requisite confidence to walk into the examination room and play to my strengths.

I was really struggling with the verbal when my friend suggested me about egmat Verbal. In just a month, I was able to ramp up my verbal tremendously. I found the video lectures very helpful in making my concepts crystal clear. It is especially useful for SC which is the most scoring section. The CR is also great. In addition, they provide the scholaranarium which has over 600 questions and is quite helpful.

I think they should bundle it with more of other tests like Veritas etc. But they do provide gmatclub and 800score tests for free. Kudos to the egmat team!

E-GMAT SC has helped me gain a lot of confidence in knowing multiple rules about GMAT Sentence correction as I am a non-native speaker of English and I used to struggle a lot with SC, the method that describes about breaking a sentence into multiple blocks depending on phrases and clauses, I learned though the course and now SC seem more easier task to handle, and the important thing is their approach gives me confidence to tackle SC, I just go step by step in a structured many get to the correct answer choice. I would recommend E-GMAT SC to all the guys who are struggling with SC.

As soon as I started my Gmat prep I realised that my quant skills were strong but I was completely lost in verbal. In verbal i was scoring well in CR but my accuracy was below 50% in SC. This brought my entire score down. I tried a few prep books but all in vain. Then I came across e-gmat verbal live prep, which was exactly the course I needed.I came to know about eGmat through one of my friend, an ex-student of eGmat, who scored 700+ on “D day”. Convinced with his feedback about the course, I decided to enrol into the program and, trust me, I never regretted my decision.
Strong determination and learnings from the course has helped me and i am confident that i can score atleast V38 this time.

To keep it short, I will share a few key notes:

1.The course does a great job of laying out what you should expect for the test, which is great for those with little to no idea what's on the GMAT. It takes you through each of the various question types for each topic, breaking down various strategies to approach each one. This is ideal as not everyone learns the same, so you can find the method best suited to you and your strengths. Even if you are familiar with the GMAT or are scoring pretty high, the various tips and strategies will provide you with opportunities to bump up your score. Beyond just tips and strategies, it also provides the foundation of knowledge you will need to do well.


2. Well-structured and researched course that helps you to understand key concepts via short videos. Provides quizzes at the end of each chapter to test your understanding of the concept . You can further enrich your learnings though diagnostic test in a timed environment. (I have recently tried verbal scholaranium and really liked quality of the questions. It’s close to patterns followed in past Official questions. Planning to complete it by month end.)

2. This course goes into the basics of sentence building and effectively explains the common errors which gmat tests. This course also simplifies CR concepts and teaches you a knack to effectively read RC passages. In my earlier mock tests my verbal scores ranged from 27 to 35 but now I am consistently hitting 38-40.
Regards.

3. Webinar are to the point and eye openers. Every time you will discover something new. Mentors guide you to put your learnings from the course into practice and solve official questions by using eGmat approach.

4. Excellent platform to interact and learn from the mentors, who have already championed the game and know the rules. It would be tough to mention all the names but few names that I would like to mention are “Neeti”, “Payal” and “Chiranjeev”. I thank all of them for their patience and guidance during the initials days of enrolment and helping me to get my basics right.

5. Reading Strategies and Width of Practice passages on RC- Another weak area is RC passages from social sciences. While my accuracy was 80-90% on technology and life science essays, it was less than 50% on passages from social sciences. On certain difficult passages, I could get only 1 out of 4 correct, this too without timing myself. Reading Strategies learnt helped me a lot in two aspects. First, I could read and understand passages from different areas without the need of any background, even to understand the meaning of an alien term. Second, not to get stuck on details and focus on the bigger picture (the main point).

6.Scholaranium- This is an amazing platform that focusses on testing ability rather than accuracy. It tracks you performance and has multiple useful features such as sections quizzes and you could also customize a quiz to your needs. This allows you to work on you weak areas and test your improvement.


In short, if you are a non-native speaker then eGmat is the place for you to ace verbal section. You can never go wrong with it.

Will share further experience after I take GMAT.

I subscribed to eGMAT’s Verbal Live Prep course to begin with, since I knew I needed help in Verbal area to cross the 700 mark. I wasn’t initially attracted to their Quant course since I was fairly good at Quant myself– consistently scoring at 48 in my mocks as well as real GMAT.

I decided to add it to my GMAT prep after taking a free session on a Sunday morning on Number properties. Similar to eGMAT’s verbal course, their Quant course is well organized, divided into segments starting with concepts in each topic and slowly allowing you to practice ad build skills. It is a good course to summarize and brush up on GMAT Math, particularly, if Math is already your strong area and you’d rather focus energies on improving verbal while not compromising on score and prep for GMAT Quant.

I recommend attending the sessions that come with the Live Prep course since they help you firm up the concepts and problem solving approach that is the bed rock to solving the problem correctly, consistently and within the allowed time. It may be the jolt you need to reach 49-51 range in real GMAT.

I was comfortable about taking GMAT with my own preparation since I had always scored better on standardized tests in the past. My previous scores on GRE (90+ percentile on Verbal), and higher scores on TOEFL and IELTS had made me complicit that I would score well on GMAT Verbal too.

However, I was in for an unpleasant shock. After doing what I considered enough preparation for Verbal, I managed to score paltry 640 (Q46, V33) in my first GMAT.

Although dismayed at the outcome, I convinced myself that I was rusty after being out of school for more than a decade. So I decided to give it another shot with lot more preparation than before. Again, I was adamant not to enroll in any external prep course, although I decided to add more practice and mock tests in my preparation- this time especially for Verbal section. I had noticed I struggled with Combitronics and CR in my prep as well as in real test. Hence I also purchased Manhatten Advanced Quant Book and Critical Reasoning Bible (David Killoran) after reading few great reviews.

After taking enough time (6 more months at self paced studying), I took GMAT a second time. This time I fared only marginally better (Q48,V35) totaling to 670. There was no doubt in my mind now - if I wanted to break into 700s, I needed a drastic change in the manner in which I was approaching questions. My Verbal section score essentially remained flat despite special efforts on my part. I had seen promos of eGMAT and therefore decided to give it a try – as a last resort of sorts.

Few things struck me immediately about eGMAT Verbal Live Prep:-

(1) The presentation format (audio+video) accounted for a much immersed and enjoyable learning experience. The organization of the course is also excellent – starting with basic building blocks in each of the 3 Verbal sections – SC, CR and RC, and then providing enough practice to master the approach and building finer skills.

(2) The 6 Live sessions on weekends are a great way to cement the approach to solve problems and identify mistakes in your approach as you dissect a problem from every possible angle – working along with the instructor and rest of the class. Many times I thought I had the assumptions identified correctly in CR problem, only to find out 2 minutes later that I was not probing with the right questions to begin with. I would give credit to eGMAT instructors Shraddha (for SC) and Payal (for CR) as they make the topics appear easy and interesting.

(3) Lastly, I want to give kudos to eGMAT for their 2 Strategy sessions. I ordered an Enhanced Score report of my last GMAT after hearing about it in the session and it allowed me to identify and scrutinize problem areas in far more granular detail than before. The other information shared in those sessions (on computer adaptive questions and scoring algorithm) are good too. Scholaranium platform is of particular help since it allows you to practice timing and analyze patterns in your practice.

My mock test scores have been V38+ after going thru the course – at times crossing V40. Encouraged by this fact, I am daring to attempt GMAT again in a month’s time. I know eGMAT guarantees 4 point improvement, however, based on the quality of course material and the very reasonable cost, I think it is a wise investment in any case – especially if you have tried improving on your own and are struck at a particular score.

- Great video lessons for a non-native beginner to build the concepts from scratch
- Focus on the right set of logics to be used in verbal section – logic vs. grammar rules
- Regular quizzes during videos help to build the concept taught
- Workshops help you figure out the high level test taking strategy
- All teachers are reachable for support anytime
- In case something goes wrong, egmat supports an extension to the course

I was able to take my GMAT score from 640 (Q49V27) to 730 (Q50V39) in 1.5 months. I would highly recommend this course to all non-native specially from India.

Would like to very much recommend the EGmat verbal online course for your preparations towards the GMAT.

This is a valuable tool and source to have by your side as one prepares for the exam. It's helps one put in a place a structure to the approach of addressing questions and goes on to help one achieve the target score.

Yes, video lessons without a fat forward feature might not be always ideal. But it's benefits are many to go ahead and enroll in the course especially given the price point in comparison to the others courses in the market.
