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)

Hi all,
E-GMAT verbal course is just fantastic. The courses are well structured, but it is definitely their explanations that set the company apart. I need to fully understand something before applying principles.

I am not an English native speaker and up to now I was really struggling with verbal part but thanks to Sundeep and his team I feel more comfortable. Previously I tried other prep company, I worked really hard but I couldnt sense significant improvements. That was probably because I had some gaps in my understanding.
Today I am more confident and systematic in the way I approach questions types.

I highly recommand E-GMAT

thanks

eGMAT explains verbal concepts in great detail. I really like the SC course. They also provide excellent support and answer queries within a day or two(max) through their forum. eGMAT has been a great resource. eGMAT's Scholoranium is a good and one of the few reliable sources of practicing questions. eGMAT's course is a great package overall. They have solutions for OG questions and it really helped when I could not understand the concepts. I think that the course is worth the money. I recommend the course to anyone who wants to understand verbal concepts in detail. The only improvement I can suggest is to make the subscription valid for one year instead of 6 months.

This is one of the best courses I have ever taken. Coming from a back ground of non native english speaking, I am very much confused with english sentences and structure. This course really demystified all the problems I had.
Sentence correction is my most favorite part. The critical reasoning are pretty awesome as well.
I would recommend the course to every one with a non -english back ground.
it is also encouraged to undergo the quant section which heard has some great tips as well. Reading comprehension is good, but squeezing some tricks can help as well..

the webinars for starters are informative and provide some confidence to learn things better

Upon taking a practice test, I realized that, even as a native, my verbal skills were sub-par (I think I scored something like Q47/V31). I scored poorly in SC (as well as CR & RC), and things seemingly clicked during my three months of preparation before my first gmat. I scored fairly low (680) and realized I needed to do something different. Even though e-gmat seems to be targeted at non-natives, I thought to myself, if non-natives like this, then I really should like this.

What I found is that e-gmat clearly explained things to me that didn't seem all that intuitive. CR has certain rules, that I would call arbitrary and non-logical. E-gmat explained in great detail why certain answers were wrong, and that helped in eliminating wrong answer choices on more difficult questions.

Their SC was invaluable to me. I think that having a decent base of SC knowledge to work off of really helped me to grasp things quickly as I went through the SC class. Also, I now notice how poorly people at my work write.

The RC was good, but not as great as their CR and SC were for a native. I did have difficulty in determining the main purpose of passages, and this class did definitely help with that.

The verbal course is well structured and tailored to the needs of non natives.Video concepts, quizzes, OG questions,application files helped me to Understand the concepts well. The way they divided OG questions according to topics is a commendable gob. Their 3 step process of solving questions, makes life much easier. I had some difficulty in Tenses and Parallelism. After going through the slides, and practicing the questions, now i am able to solve 80% of the question correctly. The course has an effectiveness of a private tutor, and doesn't cost much. Audio visual learning actually engages your ability to read. The way the whole course is designed is really commendable and highly recommended to all for whom verbal is not their strengths, especially non-natives.

I got a 640 in my first GMAT attempt in November and was crestfallen. I took a one month break. During this period I came to know about e-GMAT's SC and CR course and decided to give it a try. It has been a consistent score improvement since then for the last 4 months or so and my verbal scores in the mocks have consistently touched 40. My next GMAT attempt is scheduled in May 2016 and I am confident of getting a 720 plus score thanks to the structured e-GMAT approach to solving verbal questions. I will recommend it to anyone who wants to hit the 90th percentile in GMAT verbal.

My GMAT journey is a long one. From 2013 to 2015, I took it five times: 630-> 700 -> 720 -> 710 -> 770. As a non-native speaker, I have to say e-gmat indeed helped me to cross the 750 mark.

The first four times, I worked very hard and I’m very persistent. I studied all the materials you’ve heard of and I’ve put hundreds of hours into it. However, I still couldn’t reach my target score.

Then I began to realize GMAT is a test that requires not only hard work, but also an effective strategy and balanced mind. So when I got a lower score the fourth time, I took a chance with e-gmat and bought the verbal online course. Given the fact that I got big fellowship from a top 15 school, I believe the two hundred dollars is probably the best investment I’ve made so far.

I’m not saying e-gmat is the solution to all GMAT problems. I only testify that e-gmat approach for verbal worked very well for me. First, it helps you identify your strengths and weaknesses, which will help you better allocate your time and efforts on different sections. Secondly, its ‘meaning analysis’ approach to tackle sentence correction seems the best approach to me. I couldn’t think of other better way to prepare for this SC section. Thirdly, its CR problems are difficult so the real GMAT problems may seem easier for you. In addition, its free webinars on how to prepare for GMAT strategically are priceless, because even if a test taker is proficient in every individual section, he/she may still not able to achieve her best when all three types of problems are mixed together. Not to mention GMAT is computer adaptive. There’s just so much useful information provided in those webinars.

Anyway, as someone who used to not believe test prep courses, I wholeheartedly thank e-gmat.

I am from Indonesia, so English is definitely not my first language. I knew from the beginning that I would struggle in verbal. Having an accounting background and experience working with math, I believe that Math is something that I can handle (though math in GMAT is not 100% math, I am sure your ability working with math will help you to solve the problem faster). So I joint Kaplan course here in Jakarta.
Sadly it was not enough, BOOM I got 530 on my GMAT test. The verbal score was a low 20 (I don't event want to mention the exact score) while the math score was pretty satisfying: 46.

I did not let my self down too long, I decided to jump in again. I bought SC & CR Manhattan books. Read every pages in detail. Tried to do mock every week. But I still didn't see a good improvement. Then I read about e-GMAT in Beatthegmat and Gmatclub, they said it is the right course for non-native. Nothing to lose, I registered the free-limited course from e-gmat. Surprisingly, I really really like the way of every videos explains about the problem and material. They did not show a tips and trick or shortcut but how to understand the problem, the real root cause, and step to approach the problem. All are packed in a simple and very detail way, perfect for non-natives. I also found it to be much more easier to understand the material by watching the video rather than reading books or joining class, because you can always repeat if you don't understand, and you can even email them to ask a difficult problem. Then I purchase the Verbal Online Course, and I am so great I did so. I did not realize that the approach to learn GMAT for non-native and native should be different, but yea, it makes sense!

For non native, I think you can go to other course such as Manhattan after you finish e-gmat. It works much better, because now you have an understanding about GMAT problem, not memorising or even guessing through shortcut. So these course will complete you as you also try different style of problem. That what I experienced my self. I understood Manhattan after completing e-gmat, even though I have read the book before taking e-GMAT.

My score improve from 530 to 650!!!
and the most important one, my verbal score improve to 32!!!!!
