I am non-native speaker of english and indeed ,till my higher secondary ,the medium of instruction was Hindi. So, in GMAT world my weakest area was verbal. I prepared with standard study material such as manhattan GMAT sentence correction and power score CR and even taken a local coaching to improve my verbal score. But I had a lot of doubt which remained as doubt.

Then,I attempted GMAT on 25th April 2013 and got 660 ( Q49,V31,AWA 4.0,IR7). After my 1st attempt I realized that to cross 700,I have to get good understanding of the SC followed by CR and RC. In July 2013, I attended a strategy session of e-gmat conducted by Rajat and went through the free trials of e-gmat.Then, I joined Verbal online as was convinced that Verbal online will be suitable to my work schedule and my laziness.

Frankly till 12th November 2013, I did not utilize the course properly and was just going through files of SC,CR and RC intermittently. From 13th November 2013, I started seriously preparing for GMAT as I had decided to give GMAT a final shot ( Now or never). In ten days I went through all the files of SC,CR ,and RC and then I read all the articles of e-gmat on Gmat club. All the concept i revised in my mind several times.

After this, I got opportunity to attend Verbal workshop on 24th November.In the workshop, I performed poorly. In the analysis of the workshop, as told by e-gmat, I noted down the reasons for my falter ( they were five in number) and then made a plan to overcome from all those reasons.I devoted one day for each reason and then gave Gmatclub verbal test, Kaplan online test ( 3 tests) and manhattan online test ( free test) . My scored improved considerably as I scored V 38 Gmatclub verbal test, below 81,83and 95 percentile in Kaplan online test and V44 in Manhattan free online test ( This I gave second time. First time I gave this test in March2013). As less than a day left for my test, I went through AWA and some quants question, but did not prepare for IR. Finally, On 3rd December I gave the GMAT and scored 700 ( Q49,V35,AWA 5.0,IR4.0).

During my 20 days preparation, I realized how good the verbal online course is. Special mention for SC, because I think this is the best course which anybody can take and become comfortable with nuances of SC- sentence structure,meaning and spotting the errors.SC is structured in very easy to understand mode . Moreover, the articles written for SC is superb.In CR, Structure and pre-thinking steps gives a solid understanding of the argument. In RC, solution technique for Inference question was best.But the best part is verbal workshop. I recommend everyone to attend it,because it gives you the points where you have to focus (even you have studied full and getting a good score in mocks).

Finally, Thanks to e-gmat. I recommend Verbal online course to anyone who have problem in verbal, especially in SC and CR and who wants to give the test in very short duration.

I signed up for the sentence correction and critical reasoning sections. It cost $119 for both. I would recommend this course for a non-native speaker but if you are a native speaker of English then I would not recommend it.

E-GMAT can be useful because after each lesson there are quizzes to complete. The quizzes re-enforces the lessons. I am a native speaker and I thought the course would be useful but after using E-GMAT I purchased Aristotle Grail, which was more useful. I did not use the critical reasoning section because I used Powerscores Critical Reasoning book.

Strengths:

• Covers key areas in sentence correction for the GMAT
• Re-enforces the lesson with quizzes
• Can use at your own pace
• Different levels to complete before moving to next one

Weaknesses:

• Fairly new company
• Found too many errors with the software
• Probably more helpful for non-native speakers (not necessarily a weakness)

I first attempted the GMAT in 2012 and scored a 680 (Quant:49, Verbal: 34). After 4 years of sitting on that score, I decided to retake the GMAT and my target score was 750. To achieve this score, I knew I had to significantly improve my performance on the verbal section. Before I joined a paid prep-course, I wanted to spend sometime preparing on my own and seeing how it goes.After 2 weeks of flying solo, I realized my efforts lack direction and it is better to join a properly structured course. Classroom courses make sense to a lot of people, although in my experience they are only as good as the instructor taking your class. As I am living in a small town, I knew that the trainers available even at the renowned chain test-prep companies would not be too good. At this point I was fairly certain that I need to enroll myself in an online prep course. After a lot of apprehensions, I decided to give e-GMAT a try.
It was the best decision I made in my test prep. Let me just say that e-GMAT has decoded the mystery that GMAT verbal is for most non-natives. If you do their Sentence Correction module properly, you are set. I have become such a big fan of e-GMAT that I recommend the course to every aspirant I know. Though there is no magic pill to ace the GMAT, you can ensure the best possible returns from your effort if you take this course.
I reached my target score of 750 in a little over 2 months .

When I first did GMAT I barely looked at verbal, I was concerned with Quant. So I had 540 (Q35 V29). After this I was decided to improve my score and of course I had to drastically improve my Verbal. After some 2months and 200+ hours of Verbal preparation with eGmat, guess what I had? (Q44 V27)
How is this possible? I studied all their lessons applied the techniques did dozens and dozens of official questions and I get 2 points less? This is absolutely absurd and the only reason I see for such a disaster is that eGmat and their method are completely useless.

As it appears there is no way to study Verbal the "easy" way. So stay away from this "preparation" and take a serious course (that will probably cost you serious money too...)

And I find it very strange that they have a 4.7 stars ranking. Perhaps 90% of those who had good score never needed preparation in first place. And I bet that those who get bad scores as I did, don't bother to come here to give their review. Only those who had the score they wanted speak out.

E-Gmat has one of the best verbal courses out there in the market. As a non native ( English ) this course helped me understand the intricate details in the language which helped me through out Sentence Correction.

The techniques through which they approach a given problem..( Yes i mean problem !!..Thats how one should attack every Verbal question in my opnion ) is very calculated and to the point. These techniques certainly help you to solve the question very quickly and save time. My timing improved by 6 full minutes.!!

A big thanks for their detailed videos, which can viewed again and again at your ease.

Flashback to July 2015: I have just returned from the test center after a forgettable GMAT, one that has raised serious questions over my basic knowledge of the English Language.
I was determined to make amends and by a happy coincidence, I came across E-GMAT on a certain gmat-club forum. What struck me about them back then was the simple procedure they used to arrive at VA solutions regardless of the question/question-type.
As a result, I further attended a few webinars and eventually decided to enroll to e-gmat Verbal Online course.A few lessons in, I was able to see a change in my approach towards GMAT questions. With regular practise, I learnt to apply [Logical Diagram - Prethink - Evaluate Answer Choices] effectively to all verbal question types and this simple practice helped improve my accuracy in a major way.
The course for VOL is broken down into several chapters with a mix of videos and PDFs, all of which contributed to a healthy learning experience. What I most enjoyed during my preparation was the pre-quiz & post-quiz for every chapter. These exercises along with the solution analyses really help with one's self-assessment(They helped in my case atleast and I was able to set targets for myself).
I was particularly impressed with the CR & RC sections of the course, the level of the questions in the practice files of these sections was spot on with regard to GMAT and I believe solving these helped me overcome my fear of the GMAT environment.
However, it is worth mentioning that a lower average response time to queries would be preferable. They take about 2 days to respond to queries, as of now.
All this said, I would certainly recommend e-gmat verbal to anyone who's looking for a carefully structured course to help prepare for the GMAT.

When i started preparing for GMAT, One of the major decision to be made was to select an online course which can help me in building my concepts and approach ,and understanding question types and unique ways to solve them. E-Gmat not only helped me get all the above but more. I took its Verbal online course and below is a brief review of my experience.

E-gmat has a unique approach to SC. It first builds your concept and afterwards help you apply them in various types of questions. One thing i can say for sure is the methodology is amazing and it helped me in improving my accuracy from 40% to 85%.

Moving on to CR, The most highlighting point will be the Pre-Thinking step. The introduction to various types of questions and concepts is really good. I got a hang of it quite quickly but its Scholaranium helped further enhance my ability to solve questions.

In RC Section of E-Gmat, It has divided the various Essay types such as Buisiness, Eonomics , Bio Science and etc. These Various types of essay helps you in getting acquainted to every type of essay question asked in GMAT.

All the above, The Scholaranium is the best i would say. All the questions give you ample much of practice and help you get best statistics.
I hope my review will help people in making a crucial decision.
Thanks E-Gmat

I was actively looking for courses online for my verbal preparation. Since I have graduated from one of the top engineering colleges in India, I never faced issues with quant section. Without much efforts I was scoring in the range of 49 - 51. However my pain point was the verbal section. I did not have proper structure in place for verbal preparation. Also, I could never develop the confidence of reaching a point where I could say that I would score > 35 in the verbal section. In fact I was constantly scoring in the range of 26-30 in this section. I had exhausted all the study materials I had such as the Manhattan SC guide, Manhattan cr guide and some other materials which I found online. Such was my frustration level that I decided to put my preparation on hold as there was uncertainty of my score in the verbal section despite my sincere efforts. Then I stumbled upon eGMAT verbal online course on facebook. I realised that there were a bunch of people who were in the same boat as I was with strong quant skills but weak verbal skills, but with eGMAT's assistance had sailed through all the hurdles. I just took the decision of going ahead with this course. I think this step single handedly changed the course of my preparation.

Here are the positive points about the course. In case a student is facing trouble in the verbal section, try eGMAT for the following reasons.
1) Great quality content: The team has created online video courses for each and every important section thats important from GMAT prep perspective with very nice illustrations and top quality examples.
2) Online test platform : eGMAT provides its users with a tool called scholarium which is a very powerful platform to analyse ones performance/progress after one completes certain topics. Additionally it lets you set the topics you would specifically like to be tested on with attributes such as time, sub section, etc. Highly effective in my case. I used it extensively by filtering questions based on the topics I wasn't good at and started tracking my progress.
3) Expert's help: Whenever you are in doubt, you could write to them and you can expect a reply in just 2-3 days with concept clearing answers.
4) SC : The team provides a secret sauce particularly in this section. Honestly I started enjoying solving SC questions. I reached a very high accuracy rate for SC questions.
5) Study plan : The eGMAT team also provides its users with a study plan. This is also very effective as it defines your goals for the course of your preparation.
6) Very economical : The verbal online course is priced at a very reasonable rate compared to products offered by eGMAT's competitors.

Please register for eGMAT if you are struggling with verbal section. Haven't tried their quant but I can vouch for their verbal section. Trust me. I have seen ample materials online but none comes close to the quality which eGMAT provides.

Exceptionally happy with it!
The verbal is rather good. I promise you, you can't find a better SC course anywhere else. My improvement in SC accuracy was through the roof! also the CR and RC sections give you approaches to solve every question type a certain way. The best thing is that there are not hacks or dumb tricks to identify the correct choice like in other courses I have glanced at (trust me, every word you have been told can never be part of the correct answer, CAN be!!! I have seen it myself on the gmat and gmat prep)
The best part is the scholaranium. I especially like the ability quiz and custom quiz section. Helps to work on specific weak areas. And the variety of questions is unparalleled. I don't think there is a better quant question bank in any where else.
All in all, one month of prep and I got a decent score - 720. All thanks to egmat :)

I am a GMAT retaker and would like to highlight the improvement egmat Verbal Online course has brought. The course content is very well structured . The concepts especially for SC are explained in a highly effective manner. No further guessing or memorising is required.

The eGMAT three step process for SC and CR initially appears to be quite slow and time consuming but it actually trains the mind to pock the right track. kudos to the Prethinking strategy in CR.

I highly recommend e-GMAT Verbal Online course and can declare that this is the best programme available online for anyone aiming at improving Verbal accuracy to as high as 99%.
