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.

After studying on my own for gmat for 3-4 months, I signed up for e-gmat course. I started with SC course and it was really helpful. The way of breaking a complex sentence into clauses and clearly identifying SV pair etc really boosted my confidence in SC. CR and RC course was also useful but SC section really stand out for me. Instructors are very knowledgeable and help you learn the right ways and methods to tackle GMAT. Rajat's strategy sessions are also useful. I would recommend e-gmat course for non-natives or any one who is struggling with verbal section.

This review is for: e-GMAT Quant Live Prep | Location: Online | Taught by: Japinder Kaur

As I had been out of school for almost 5 years I purchased the quant course thinking that it will be a good refresher. It was much more than that. The practice problems were very challenging and i had to go back and learn concepts again to be able to attempt them correctly. This is an excellent course for people who have been out of touch for some time and do not have access to high school books. It brushes your memeory and at many times challenges you to think w/o doing the problems mechanically. This is exactly what the GMAT tests. At the end of the course one is thorough with the concepts and is confident of taking the exam. I feel this is the single most important factor to do well in an exam such as the GMAT.

EGMAT- VERBAL LIVE PREP November 10 | 2015

I purchased the verbal live prep some time in May and have been using it as my primary gmat resource. It is a very good product which stresses on basic concepts instead of providing tricks to ace the gmat. The GMAT is an exam which tests logic and cannot be tricked. This course builds your foundation and is a great resource for people looking to attack the GMAT in a systematic manner. The meaning analysis in sentence correction and the prethinking method in Critical Reasoning helps to solve even the most difficult questions and do wonders to your confidence which ultimately affects your GMAT score under timed conditions.

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.

This review is for: e-GMAT Verbal Online | Location: Online

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.

This review is for: e-GMAT Verbal Live Prep | Location: Online | Taught by: Krishna Chaitanya

The e-gmat verbal live prep helps in enhancing the required skills for GMAT.Since I am a non native i find egamt very helpful.
The best product available in market so far.
The SC has always been my weakest point and i believe SC is very important for the 700+ score in GMAT. Luckily the egamt SC is totally technical and not much to memorize,just a good practice will help you a lot.
The CR is fabulous.I know i have improved a lot in CR with the help of instructors such as Krishna.
I believe non natives will surely find this course more than their expectations.

This review is for: e-GMAT Quant Live Prep | Location: Online | Taught by: Japinder Kaur

In my first attempt, I signed up for a bangalore based test prep company and studies for more than 7 months and got Q40. The problem was that the did not teach the basic concepts very clearly and instead started teaching to solve complex problems. Also they taught shortcuts for each problem and they took a different approach to solve each problem What I found at the end was that the shortcuts and the approaches worked only for the problems from their course and when i took the actual test, i could not solve most of the problems and got Q40. Then I found e-GMAT course. Initially I used only verbal live prep and i was my accuracy increased in verbal after using e-GMAT course. Then I thought i will just spend extra $150 and see how this quant live prep is going to be. Later I realized that that was the best thing i did. I am out of college for almost 7-8 years now and this Quant course was very helpful to teach me all math concepts required for GMAT exam. I digested all the concepts very clearly and had a standard approach for each question type. Even though it took little longer to apply the standard approach for each problem, it helped me improve my accuracy. Its certain that we cannot answer all the questions correct in GMAT, but the eGMAT concepts with enough practice tests will be sufficient to score Q 50 / 51. After using this math course for 3 months, i got Q-50 in my second attempt.

This review is for: e-GMAT Verbal Live Prep | Location: Online | Taught by: Neeti Sohal

I am average indian IT professional trying to do MBA. I wrote my GMAT first time and got 530(Q40,V23) after 6 months of preparation. I could not identify what was wrong with my preparation. That's when I figured out e-GMAT and attended free SC session. I was surprised how easy it is to solve SC problems with e-GMAT 3 step process. The highlight of the course is SC. I dont know what is the magic in the structured 3 step process. After solving so many problems using the process throughout the course, we start applying the process naturally. My SC percentile increased from just 23 to 89 in my second attempt. In my second attempt i got 700 (Q40, V35). I am local-medium student till my 12th standard and i started learning English after joining college. So I hated RC initially as there is so much information to digest and so many new words to understand the meaning. e-GMAT RC process helped me to predict the meaning of new words in the passage and comprehend the meaning at first read. Even if it takes more time to read first time, take time and read it. I took almost 9 mins for each RC passage, but my accuracy improved during my mock tests. Next comes CR. I felt that CR is my weakest session and still I am not that expert in applying eGMAT CR 4 step process. The result is I had a very low CR score. I received my ESR for V35 and the split was SC -89, RC - 65, CR - 5. Inspite of my low CR score I managed to score V35. Thanks to e-GMAT. One thing that I liked about e-GMAT is how they insist students to have the basics clear. After splitting the sentences into many small clauses and identifying the errors in SC sentence, I realized that even complex sentences will have very basic subject-verb errors / ver tense errors. By having the basic concepts clear, i was able to increase my accuracy a lot for even very complex problems. (Please dont think that solving so many complex problems without having any process will improve your accuracy. Instead, understand the basic concepts, apply the concepts and process for easy and medium problems, you will start answering complex problems automatically - this is from my experience.)
Dont waste money in joining some random courses where they market that their students all got 99 percentile. I spent around $500 for bangalore based prep company in my first attempt and i got devastated score. Those courses may be good for people who are already stong at taking standardized tests. But if have not taken any standardized tests in your life, this course will be very useful to start from the basics.

This review is for: e-GMAT Verbal Online | Location: Online

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!
