All of you looking out for a great online course that is self explanatory and provides a plethora of practice questions, please pursue E-GMAT. The best value addition to my learning has been in CR. I have learned how to break down an argument, identify the different parts of the argument and easily eliminate 3 answer choices. Moreover, the Scholaranium section is fantastic. It is a real indicator of how you would feel on the test day in terms of difficulty and pacing yourself to answer these difficult question within a particular time frame. Beyond that I think the SC learning modules are great. The most important part is to understand the explanations that are provided along with the questions. Great emphasis on the POE method as it trains you completely to tackle SC for the test day. I faced a lot of difficulty in RC during my test and it reflected on my verbal score as well. However, simply following the RC modules and the E-GMAT approach has boosted my percentile in RC. Therefore, I would recommend E-GMAT to anyone looking for studying for the GMAT for first time or to someone looking to boost their score. It's fantastic and it is guaranteed that you will improve your score.

Finally cracked the GMAT! November 23 | 2015

So.. Gave my GMAT on 6th Nov 2015. This was my 3rd attempt and hence I knew in my heart that this time I have to crack that 700+ mark and aim for a high score. My previous attempts fared like this:

Attempt 1: 590 (Q 42, V 29)
Attempt 2: 650 (Q 47, V 32)

Finally in the 3rd attempt scored a 710 (Q 47, V 41, AWA- 6, IR-5). While I was hoping for a 730+ (and honestly could have done better in quant) I was nonetheless quite happy with my performance.

I started my prep for 3rd attempt around August 2015 (wanted to start early but hectic work schedule did not allow that ). Below I have tried to list out some steps I followed during my 3 months of prep for GMAT.

1) before i started my prep, I decided to reflect back on my performance. Clearly, Verbal section was a challenge for me and I needed to put in lot of efforts to increase my verbal score. Being a non native speaker made it even more difficult to understand and grasp the verbal concepts.
That is where e-gmat came into picture. After doing a lot of research, reading through forums, and talking to people I decided to attend few free verbal sessions offered by e-gmat. I found their teaching methods highly methodical yet simplistic and felt that e-gmat might be the right choice for me to work on my verbal skills. With that in mind I enrolled for their Verbal Online course (even verbal live prep is very good but for me self studying works better). As it turns out, this was one of the best decisions I had ever taken in my approach towards gmat preparation. The modules offered by them are nicely structured for all 3 sections.

SC was always my strength but I used to make some critical mistakes on the 700+ questions. E-gmat's 3 step approach to solving SC questions made life much easier. I realised that by simply focussing on the meaning of the sentence there was a lot that could be unraveled regarding the sentence structure. Once I got a hang of it I stopped relying on my ear and started focussing on the meaning of the sentences to get through a sentence correctly.

CR was a challenge for me during my past attempts. A huge challenge. After enrolling in the e-gmat course I realise why it was so. I had missed out on the most important aspect of CR q's- PRE-THINKING!! Pre-thinking in CR q's is a non-negotiable according to me. Once you start to pre-think the underlying assumptions that the passage has, half the battle is already won. E-gmat's module teaches you to excel this skill through it's well structured modules. From a 30-40% accuracy in CR to a 100 % accuracy on actual test (source- enhanced score report) is no mean feat and understanding a cr argument, breaking it down to it's simplest form, and pre-thinking assumptions is something that comes in handy very single time.
RC - they key to excel in this section is to NOT GET BORED while reading a passage. That is most important. Losing your interest in what the passage is talking about affects your RC performance deeply. Practice as much as u can without worrying about time spent per passage (initially). read editorial sections from newspapers to get a hang of complicated language and sentence structures.

Also the scholaranium tool offered by E-gmat comes very handy. You can track your performance on a regular basis and the tool offers a huge question bank.

2) Created an air tight daily schedule for my prep and followed it without fail. reviewed my performance weekly and noted down concepts/ q types that I still needed to work on. This step is very important. There are so many different topics to cover (both in quant and verbal ) that If you do not have a plan in mind then you can easily lose track and end up messing your entire preparation.

3) For quant I used OG and Magoosh course. Magoosh again is a very helpful course specially for quant section. The modules are really helpful and Magoosh also offers an extremely helpful question bank.

Also I cannot stress enough on how important OG is when preparing for GMAT. Official guide questions can often give you insight into every single concept that can be tested on gmat so make OG your first check point towards GMAT.

4) Tests - GMAT prep (best possible source. very accurate and reliable). MGMAT tests- another useful source. the 6 CAT's allow for good practice and even the scoring algorithm is close enough to the real GMAT.

But the most important aspect to success in GMAT is patience. GMAT is no rocket science. More than anything it is a test of your nerves. all the prep that you put in boils down to just one thing- how well can you manage the stress levels during your actual test. Make no mistake that the most important aspect the test likes to explore is your ability to understand the logic behind questions under a stressed environment.

All the best !

I registered for E-GMAT verbal online course after completing my initial prep from various other sources. Though i have been good at quant, i couldnt improve much on verbal prior EGMAT course.

EGMAT completely changed my approach towards verbal. SC has been the most dreaded part but the concepts followed by tests has helped me improve in each topic in SC. I find the verbal course very structured and easy to learn.

I am in midst of my preparation and have already experienced improvement in my score and feeling confident about CRACKING the verbal.

I am looking forward to CRACKTHEGMAT with EGMAT.I would surely recommend this course for GMAT Verbal prep

I learnt of e-Gmat from the Gmat club and I was very impressed with the reviews about this prep test company. Then i decided to go with the e-Gmat verbal online. e-Gmat actually does what it advertise. The way e-Gmat teaches students is very different from other prep companies. It gives international students (like me) different perspectives on how to solve the questions on SC, RC and CR. So far, I have improved 50+ on Verbal and even though this 50+ is still a bit far from my targeted goal, I am very hopeful that I will reach it by the last week of my studying. e-Gmat certainly is very helpful to me. Give it a try guys!!! :)

The course helped me realise how I should not have taken my GMAT exam without such basic platform.
First and best thing to start with was the SC preparation. It gives a very clear picture of how to look and categorize a complex sentence structure. Initially i was not good at grammar and i prepared for SC by studying the grammar rules. But once i started my preparation with e-GMAT I got rid off the basic fear of reading a complex sentence. I learnt how to break the sentence to understand the meaning clearly. This helped me indirectly in CR as I need not go through the sentence twice to understand it. I feel for CR and RC one needs to develop fast and clear comprehension (which I'm not good at) along with this online material.
I'm yet to complete the course as I need a balance between professional practise and my education and that i need more time. Still I strongly believe e-GMAT has a very detailed and clear structure comparitive to other online study materials (I purchase one another online course before e-GMAT).

E-GMAT verbal online is a great course for GMAT verbal prep. I signed up for the course and I became more and more confident to solve GMAT verbal questions.

This course takes you from the scratch to the advanced level. All the videos are simple to comprehend. This course is not about the grammar but logic. E-GMAT team take step by step approach in videos to train the students in every aspect of GMAT verbal.

Honestly, one should go for the course, if one is looking for above 70% percentile in GMAT verbal. I have revised the course 2 times and hoping to score in 80th percentile of verbal in my next attempt.

Hi

I would like to share my experience with E-gmat Verbal Online. The course content is great and meticulously planned to give a good insight into each verbal section specially the SC which i happened to focus more. I did manage to run through the CR course before my 2nd GMAT attempt though i was quite literally struggling to master this section. Another area of weakness was RC and here to i was not in a position to complete the course despite the 6mth validity period. So i just decided to give the exam come what may with just a fair improvement in SC.

Honestly i would Not be the right person to give a constructive feedback on the CR & RC courses as i haven't mastered the E-gmat process yet. This is more to do with the kind of approach i used in practice which was best suited to me but never yeilded concrete results. But i am sure the course if pursued with due diligence would yeild results.

Just to add to my prep , I have enrolled for the E-gmat Vlive prep to understand the gaps in my learning and as of now i can already see further improvement in SC. I believe I can master the CR and RC courses if i can manage to diligently follow their process

Only concern i have is the time frame recommended for this Vonline course. I found that to be challenging since my fundamentals in Verbal were totally exposed in the 1st GMAT and literally it was learning verbal from scratch. Hence i did take a lot more time to cover the majority(SC & CR) of Vonline.

I would recommend this course for people who need just a brush up on the fundas and for others like me i suggest directly enroll for live prep which is more comprehensive in all aspects.

I started preparations in early 2015 using Manhattan GMAT and one more online prep tool, even though both are great resource (enough for all my inspiring seniors), but I could not improve beyond a point - my first mock highlighted me to be weak in all 3 verbal sections. It was a big disappointment, since I was working hard (in my terms at least then) by taking out time during lunch breaks, weekly flights, dedicating entire weekends in midst of 70-80 hour work weeks.
It was then I decided to switch to E-Gmat in Q2 2015.
After attending E-Gmat Verbal online course for couple of months (with same schedule), I realized that Sentence Correction, my most dreaded subject so far, is the easiest skill to acquire on the GMAT exam. With E-GMAT approach, SC has become a breeze, and without revising my SC notes for last 2 months, I still do well (max 2 wrongs on mocks). So thumbs up to E-Gmat for that.
RC is the other section I had to work upon, earlier I used to panic with my slow speed and mess up answers largely, but now I am much more calmer during RC sections now than ever before. I had to seek additional help from some online blogs apart from e-gmat's thorough approach, but at least I had the basic approach set.
For Critical Reasoning, E-Gmat video classes directed me into correct direction from my previous randomized approach, yet I could not perform very well on mocks in this section due to my slow speed or carelessness many at times, so I had to complement it with more resources, and top advice I received from blogs & friends was to refer Powerscore Critical Reasoning Bible. I again realized that E-Gmat had given me a solid base to be able to absorb additional (or re-emphasizing) advice in this famous book that I always thought to be uninteresting.
Not to forget, Scholaranium tests have been helpful in understanding concept of TAKT time; even though I subscribed to only Verbal course's part, I am able to apply the concepts properly to Quant sections.
e-GMAT provided great support‎, excellent well-researched very-relevant material, and very good Scholaraniums, both Verbal and Quant (the beta testing invite arrived at the perfect time for me, I strengthened my Number systems and Remainders topics using it). Honestly EGMAT played a great role in whatever I could score.

I’ve been using the e-GMAT course for only 1.5 month, and my score has improved from 570 (Q42, V27) to 670(Q48 - V34). I’m really impressed. Thank you e-GMAT !.

e-GMAT gives a crystal-clear explanation of how to gain a higher score. The best part of e-gmat is I can learn and practice each Verbal topic (Modifiers, Parallelism, etc) separately. Features such as score data analysis also help me understand my weaknesses. Therefore, I can effectively allocate my time to improve on weak areas.
In the future, I hope they provide courses on Android platform too.

Previously I subscribed to the Economist GMAT Prep, but I couldn’t get score higher than 600. The explanation is not deep enough, the practice test is too easy and the price is expensive too!

I am a non-native English speaker. When I decided to appear for GMAT and took a diagnostic test to get a feeling where I stand in the verbal section, I got a miserable 21. I have enrolled in to the E-GMAT verbal online course and went through the well developed, process oriented approach to each of the verbal section. After completing 80% of the course, I have written two more mock tests to check where am I at this point of time. To my surprise( may be not a surprise, because now I am well equipped) I scored 36 and 39 respectively. This a tremendous improvement, for me at least.
I happily recommend this course not only to the non-native speakers but also to the native speakers. Because the approach developed by the E-GMAT helps beating the GMAT.
