Overall the verbal online course is well designed for non-natives. The SC part is the best and striking feature of the course. Course content is clear and well presented. It presents concepts that needs to be practised initially but gradually you save time when you apply the embed the thought process into your thinking. With regards to improvement, I will say there should be a summary of all concepts videos so you can go through them before the exam or before doing mocks. Apart from this, I found the course to be quite useful. I tried the Quant course, which found to be equally good and well presented.

Was initially wondering whether I should go for a paid verbal course given the vast material one already has freely available. A lot of people recommended the eGMAT lessons and I decided to give it a shot. Loved the fact there was a session on each microtopic - which helped in making the concepts very clear. Also, the quiz at the end gave good practice and helped in solidifying the same. Would probably attribute a 20-30 pointer difference to my result to these guys. One can also take a trial to really get a feel of the course. Works perfectly for guys who want to study at their own pace.

e-GMAT courses are very well designed and effective for non-native speakers who do not have a "ear" to correct mistakes in SC. They help you follow a structured 3 step approach to tackle all SC problems in GMAT. This helps us deal with the GMAT as any regular "standardized" test and easily breeze through 650 plus questions in GMAT. For questions above 700 level you need to utilize the scholarnarium tool designed by e-GMAT team. This is a highly efficient tool preparing us for the tougher questions on the GMAT. So in total, i have personally benefited from the e-GMAT verbal online course. My accuracy in SC has improved from an abysmal 40% to over 80%. Also i am using this tool to strengthen my CR & RC performance. You need to plan the usage of the course in the same pattern as suggested by e-GMAT team. Also practice the OG questions in the order suggested by them. Even they have prepared detailed solutions to all the OG questions which is much more in-depth as compared to the official guide solutions. I would definitely recommend verbal online e-gmat course to all those who want to improve their verbal performance in GMAT.

I undertook the Verbal course for 40 days and could achieve a score of 700 (Q50, V34). e-GMAT indeed is one of the best courses out there, specially for non-natives. They have divided the entire course in a very structured manner. SC, RC, CR- all the three components of Verbal are very well explained in a methodical manner. Any non-native can score well at GMAT by religiously following the methods described by the instructors at e-GMAT. The support at eGMAT is also great with a quick turnaround time for any query.
I would recommend eGMAT Verbal Online course for anyone who has no idea as to how to go about the verbal preparation.

I would like to second on the above mentioned tag line (of e-gmat)- "best course for non-natives". The course was a perfect fit for me. Not only did the course provide me knowledge, but also it changed the way I look at Verbal now. All the sections are very well built up and all the topics are nicely aligned. You can always skip the basic topics if you are good at those. Writing this review in a hurry. Will post a new one with all the details and hopefully with a better score. P.S.- Scholarnium has a huge pool of questions and one must use this feature.

I am using the eGMAT verbal online course for the past 5 months now. I must say that they are the best in the town verbal stuff available for non natives. My first GMAT score was V21. Now after the structured approach to verbal questions, such as pre-thinking in CR, RC & sentence breakdown & meaning understanding SC helped me break the ice. My mock scores for verbal are now around V35. Also the GMAT CLUB mock tests in quant helped me a lot more. Intially q45 was my score. after taking many of the qaunt mocks, now it has improved to around V49.

You can find my detailed debrief at the following location.
http://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-debrief-770-q50-v44-ir8-awa5-215678.html#p1690881

This review if for e-gmat Verbal Online course only.
I found the course to be very helpful. As mentioned in my debrief I was stuck between 30-37 in Verbal score most of the times. After doing the course once and revising it once, I consistently managed to score above 40. I think the folks at e-gmat have managed to drill down the required essence of English grammar necessary for GMAT and developed a good approach for every problem type. I did not join any other course so I cannot compare it with any other course, but in itself, I feel the e-gmat course, if followed diligently, is worth very dollar or rupee spent on it.

Pros:
1) The course gives a very good approach for every problem type. If you are in the course, learn the 'strategy' of the problem first and then the specifics. For e.g. in SC, it is understanding the meaning, in RC, it is developing an interest in the passage and so on. The course will not delve much on basics of grammar like gerunds and what not, and I think atleast for the GMAT prep that is not such a bad thing.
2) The course is cheap. It is easy to spend 1000s for dollars in GMAT prep and for some it might be required. But e-gmat is 1/10th the cost and you can get deals occasionally. The GMAT club tests which come with it are a bonus and so is the IR section. The GMAT club quant tests are really good.
3) The interactive medium of videos is very good. It does not make the course boring. Also the various exercises and problems after every course are good.
4) The free seminars on multiple topics are beneficial. At my location, the seminars started Sat or Sun 7am and it became a habit for me to get up for them and study. Some of them may go long and feel repetitive but nevertheless ultimately keep you in touch with the material. The verbal workshop helped me compare myself with other students (since I was not in the Verbal Live course).
5) Scholaranium - good tool to get a quick evaluation of oneself. Although I did not use this as much as I could have (since I ran out of time), it is helpful if you are stressed about a particular topic.

Cons:
There are few things that can be improved.
1) Forums - Sadly, I think the forums on e-gmat need work. The forum is not interactive (members cannot reply to each other) and I never got good help from the experts. The answers were slow (2-3 days which is understandable given the volume) and not real answers but questions to test understanding. This is good but by that time I had already moved on to next topic. GMAT club is most useful in this regard. If the question is a general one, just google the whole sentence and gmatclub comes usually in top 5 links with detailed discussions.
2) IR section - This section is really bonus with Verbal course but I think e-gmat (and pretty much most GMAT coaching centers) need to work on improving IR. The current IR course is good but it does not have the same rigor and focus on strategy like Verbal in my opinion. It seems most admissions consultants now give great importance to IR scores and it will help both e-gmat and students to have a full-fledged course on IR.

So thats it from my side. Hope this review is helpful and if you have any questions, feel free to PM me. Good luck!

Hello Everyone !
This review is for someone who is a non-native like me (although I feel that e-mat will surely help natives and non-natives alike). Before e-gmat I tried 2 courses for verbal - 1. Manhattan Gmat Verbal and EmpowerGMAT. After completing the above 2 courses I was still struggling to break the 700 mark because of weak sentence correction. I went through the Manhattan SC guide twice along with listening to EmpowerGMAT verbal multiple times but could never feel comfortable doing SC Questions. The problem with EmpowerGMAT is that it relies too much on one's ear. Manhattan GMAT SC guides on the other hand are really good for understanding individual rules but when it comes to applying 3-4 different rules/concepts in real GMAT like questions some how I was always making mistakes. The explanations for OG questions in the book and the online videos are not helpful. The explanations fail to unambiguously convey to the reader why a particular options is right vs why other options are not.. In short the explanations are a lot like the explanations in the OG guide. So after struggling with SC for about 1-1.5 month I decided to give e-gmat a try.
It turned out to be an excellent course and a good value for money. e-gmat teaches you a very methodical approach which can be used for all SC Questions alike without any exceptions. I must say that at first the 3 step approach (Meaning Analysis, Error analysis and options analysis) made me feel like I could never complete the question in 90 odd seconds if I were follow the approach to the letter but as I solved more and more questions (say 20-30 questions) following the same approach my accuracy improved quite a bit and the average time required to solve a SC question went down. Ultimately my verbal score improved from a below par V26 in mock tests to V38 in actual test and I could break the 700 mark.

I enrolled for eGMAT verbal online course a few months back and found the course very helpful. All modules are designed excellently. All concepts are very well explained and sufficient practice material is also available in scholaranium. I personally liked sentence correction module, which gave me tough time before start of the course. Now, i am able to solve SC questions very fast with good accuracy. Coming to CR the concept of prethinking is very unique of eGMAT. Prethinking not only helps you in reducing your solving time but also greatly improves your accuracy. In RC module strategies are discussed on how to read effectively given passage. This is really helpful to students, who don't have the habit of reading. Overall, i benefited a lot from the course.

I fully attribute my verbal improvement to e-GMAT. After I subscribed to e-GMAT trial i realized the approach they were using was very useful in my case and i subscribed the verbal online course .The audio visual files followed by short Quiz for assessing the improvement was one key approach that helped me throughout this course . Moreover the difficulty level and content structure of Quiz in each section was as per Module covered (like if one has covered modifier and parallelism one will not encounter any idiom question ) which helps in determining the improvement rather than getting demoralized when failed to solve one due to a concept not covered. Another tools of E-Gmat that helped me are Quiz review Section and Scholaranium.
On the one hand Quiz review section consist of detail analysis to the quiz and an ask an expert option for asking my doubts and shows doubts from other students (which covered most of my doubts ) and Scholaranium on the other hand gives my progress in hand at anytime which helped me a lot in deciding which section i should focus more as i progressed through the course , which i think is the most critical .
At last i want to thanks to all e-GMAT team members ( Rajat, Payal ,Anubhav, Krishna & Shraddha ) for their support and feedback .
