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

I have been working for nearly 7 years and one day decided to go for an executive MBA. So, during my search for ex mba I learnt that I need a GMAT score for application. So, I started to solve GMAT questions online. Since, I am an engineer quants section was not a big problem for me other than seeing how to approach data sufficiency questions. But, the real devil was verbal. I had no clue what to do with difficult CR questions and no idea about how to approach SC and RC. Totally bemused I started searching on web about GMAT study material and luckily find out about e gmat. I read their reviews which were generally very good and e gmat was also very cost effective. So, I subscribed e -gmat and started taking their lessons. The way e gmat describe approach to solve SC is brilliant. Suddenly it became all easy to understand the questions and what to look into it. Same goes with CR and RC which introduced me to pre thinking which changed my way of solving the RC and CR questions. In all it was a wonderful learning experience and I recommend all the non natives to see egmat's free webinars and decide for themselves which course to go for.

I took my first GMAT attempt on September 14th 2015 and scored 640[Q48, V31].
e-GMAT Verbal Live Prep was of great help in achieving the result.

Following features of the live prep really helped me:

Live discussion of problems:
The instructor will take a problem and will explain every stage of the approach- right from reading the sentence to marking the right answer.

Ask a question on the spot:
A user can ask the question at any time during the discussion. It really helped me to get my doubts quickly resolved.

Sharing the recording of the live sessions:
This feature was really helpful in cases in which I missed the live session due to my personal commitments.

The step by step approach was really helpful in solving the problems within time limits.

In the end i would like to thanks e-GMAT Verbal Live Prep team for their constant support.

Regards,
Neetu

This review is for: Magoosh Premium | Location: Online | Taught by: Mike McGarry

It was in June 2015 that I decided that I must appear for gmat exam in this year. But I was confused regarding the prep classes that I should take since the cost of prep was a major factor influencing my decision. A colleague of mine suggested me to purchase the premium package of magoosh. I purchased it for just around INR 6500 and started studying from Sept 1st week. I had scheduled my exam for 9th Oct and this was my 1st attempt. I knew that it was too ambitious of me to think that I could prepare in just a month's time, but I did anyway and I got a score of 730 with Q49 and V41. I am happy that the effort, time and money I invested paid off well :)

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

While preparing for GMAT I tried with many books and have read almost most of the books in verbal. Manhattan SC and Powerscorce CR Bible books was my best reads for CR and SC. Books provide us with most formulae’s and what to do and what not to do. I have read the books and tried to apply these formulae’s and knowledge in GMAT OG questions. When I tried to apply the knowledge I gained from the books I got severe mistakes and basic understanding of meaning of sentence was not right. Thus, I was in no man’s land in verbal section. I realised after doing verbal section that I mugged all formulae’s and read the books more than once to remember but failed to understand insights of true meaning of sentence or evaluate a CR question.
During my realization I understand that books can provide information and formulae but cannot change the thought process of how we apply them in reality. Now, I have decided not to buy book rather go for a good tutorial based training program with nice explanation in-depth analysis and systematic approach. Picture speaks a thousand words. I got to know about e-GMAT from club gmat and tried free tutorials online. I was fascinated by the explanations and thought process they have explained to crack SC or CR problems. I bought online verbal program for SC,CR and RC.
I have gone through each and every tutorial and completed all the exercises for SC CR and RC. E-GMAT has changed the way I read even in day to day activities. E-GMAT has equipped me with necessary tools and thought process to crack GMAT. Now, I could confidently crack verbal OG part. I wish I had these basics earlier in schooling days itself. Highlights of program are application questions at the end of every section. Pre-thinking in CR section is excellent.
Thank you e-GMAT for providing excellent support and changing the thought process in verbal section.

This review is for: e-GMAT Verbal Online | Location: Online | Taught by: Payal Tandon

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.

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.

During my 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.

This review is for: EMPOWERgmat Online Course | Location: Online

I decided to go with empower because of its affordable price, the score booster method which allows you to skip most quant fundamentals, and the various advice and strategies used to work around certain questions and save precious time for the questions that do matter.

For the Quant part, I feel that EmpowerGMAT will definitely be more helpful for people that already have a good grasp of the fundamentals but do want that extra boost by adding efficient strategies to their arsenal, such as the art of triaging and test it methods that must become like reflexes. While those strategies may feel at first counter-intuitive, I do feel that they are much more effective than focusing solely on extremely hard quant questions such as the ones you can find on GMATClub.

The Verbal part is extremely useful; I would probably recommend EmpowerGMAT just for their advice on RC which will help you achieve easily 100% accuracy on any level questions. The CR methods are broken down to very simple concepts that are easy to apply and clearly show you which topics are worth more of your time. The SC part focuses less on remembering many complex grammatical rules, and is more oriented towards simple things to look out for, as well as clearing out obvious mistakes in wrong answer choices.

Unfortunately, I failed the official exam a couple of days after finishing the course. I scored a 640 while I was aiming for a 690, which I consistently got on CAT’s at home. I was extremely stressed, especially on the quant part and to my surprise the verbal was a complete disaster.

I rescheduled an exam for the next month, and sent an email to EmpowerGMAT in order to explain what happened.

I got in touch with Brian, who was extremely helpful in identifying the factors that led to the scores I kept getting, and just as I suspected myself, I was not correctly applying the strategies given by EmpowerGMAT. Furthermore, my knowledge of the material was not really an issue, and thus more practice questions were not going to help me much.

Brian also wrote me a detailed email that outlined exactly what strategies I absolutely had to implement on the test day. I felt that this email as probably the most helpful advice EmpowerGMAT gave me.

I only had enough time to test them on one GMATprep CAT before the real exam. I got a 710, breaking through the 700 barrier for the first time.

The next morning, I focused as much as possible on implementing the tactics that had worked the day before. I couldn’t believe the score that showed up: 740, ranking in the 97th percentile.

Those tactics helped me achieve a score that many, including myself, have only dreamed about.

I would highly recommend EmpowerGMAT, especially to the people that feel like they are beginning to stall and don’t gain any more points by doing additional practice questions. I would also encourage people to contact them directly and tell them about your particular issues or situation, the EmpowerGMAT team is extremely kind, helpful, and comprehensive.

This review is for: e-GMAT Verbal Online | Location: Online | Taught by: Rajat Sadana

I was very disappointed with my Verbal score in my previous GMAT attempt.
Like most Asians, I had done reasonably well on the Quant and hence I was specifically looking for a course that would help me focus on the Verbal section.
I found e-GMAT to be the most reliable option, given their positive reviews all around.
And till now my experience with the course has been amazing.
I have developed a strong foundation on the verbal concepts I was unsure of during my last attempt.
I think their interactive and intuitive interface has helped me learn faster and retain better.
The e-GMAT 3-step approach to a question is extremely practical and effective.
I would highly recommend just going through some of their answer explanations to see for yourself.

After having completed about 80% of the course, I feel very confident on the verbal section.
Hopefully, in a few weeks time i would be able to post a much better GMAT score.

When I started my GMAT preparation and gave a CAT to see where I stood, I became sure that if I needed anything to improve, it was the verbal part. After a couple of months of self preparation, there was not much difference to where I was. Thanks to the genuine reviews on gmatclub, I decided to invest in e-gmat verbal online. It is the best thing that can happen for a non-native like me. The approach to crack any kind of GMAT verbal question in any section is just so easy to understand and apply. I have started seeing the verbal questions just like Quant ones with a strategy to attack them. It has made a huge difference in my preparation. If you are struggling with verbal, believe me do not waste your valuable time and invest in this course it will make a huge difference in your score and the kind of schools you will be able to apply. The price of the course is nothing compared to the impact it will make on your GMAT score and admissions journey. Good Luck to all!

Before opting for the Verbal Live Prep course from E-Gmat, I went through various verbal courses available online but none of them were as complete as the Verbal Live Prep from e-gmat. After going through the course , i felt nothing in the curriculum is left behind and i could easily solve difficult SC, CR and RC questions.

At the beginning of the course, a study plan is provided which helped me greatly in chalking out my own study plan.
The concepts are taught using Audio/Visual files which are more interesting in reading plain text files. This leads to better concentration and better retention of the concepts learned. The learning process is well planned. After a series of concept files there are application files which tests the ability to apply the concepts learned in that section. The files may be revisited as many times as required. Moreover, the application of concepts is taught in great details in the Live Sessions and all queries/doubts are answered by the tutors.

E-GMAT Scholaranium is a wonderful tool that helps greatly in increasing the accuracy.

Overall, E-GMAT Verbal Live Prep is a highly recommended course to increase your verbal ability. Most of my friends who have cracked or are preparing for GMAT have gone through the VLP course by E- Gmat.

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

I used e-GMAT online course extensively for the verbal section. I targeted for 100% accuracy in SC to achieve higher score in this section; and e-GMAT was helpful in pushing towards that. RC and CR sections of this course are also very helpful to improve your scores.
e-GMAT course makes the verbal section much more logical and understandable. This course removed much of guesswork that I earlier used in this section. I found the e-Gmat method of audio visual method along with pre and post tests after each concept much more helpful than just reading books.
I highly recommend this course for non-natives.
