I started the GMAT process by studying on my own with the official guide and a Kaplan book doing practice problems and briefly going over some of the strategy and advice they had to offer. I also used a little bit of magoosh. With this I got a 640, but I knew my studying wasn't effective and I wasn't approaching the test with any strategy. I really needed to shore up on verbal in particular. I took the veritas prep live online class to help provide me with a more structured and systematic approach to the test. All of the study materials provided are great and help you with all the basic content needed. The class then builds on the content and skills you learn with the materials to really help you approach the test with the necessary strategies. Ethan was a fantastic teacher who never made a minute of the class boring. You could really tell how much he cared about his students and how much time and effort he put into the process. The live online class is great technology that allows you to get all of the necessary teaching needed to do well on the test from the comfort of your own home! I would absolutely recommend Ethan to everyone, and I thought the live online platform at veritas is as good as anything out there.

Ethan was an amazing teacher and made learning the GMAT curriculum so much easier! I would strongly recommend Ethan (and Chris!) for taking a GMAT prep course from Veritas. He has supplemental information to Veritas and was an SAT tutor prior to Veritas so he has a tremendous amount of experience under his belt. Every class I would look forward to his GMAT jokes and funny sayings that would help the class remember specific sections.

The level service that Veritas offers is outstanding. Every time I have been with customer service or emailing Ethan I always got a prompt response.

Thank you Veritas for making my experience amazing!

This course is a great way to start my studies for the GMAT. I have not taken the test yet, but have taken a few practice tests and have improved immensely. It gave me structure to study as well as guidelines and what to focus on first. It is important to know that taking this class isn't just throwing money at studying; you really have to be as invested in the program and use all the resources in order to get the most of out of your experience.
e-GMAT Verbal Live Prep course, indeed, is one of the most valuable gift for a GMAT aspirant, especially the one who is struggling with the verbal section, can give to himself / herself. The course is clearly geared for students (native as well as non-native speakers) seeking the types of scores needed to get into top-tier b-schools. The materials and classes are extremely well thought out and taught by really talented and smart people (Rajat, Payel, Neeti).
Overall the Verbal Live Prep is unique course with following key advantages:
• Extremely organized course curriculum for SC, CR & RC section including study plan, practice questions & its detailed explanations which you might not of think that one before.
• Live sessions to interact with faculty/experts & see how they approach of harder/difficult problems using e-GMAT techniques
• 24X7 email support from the e-GMAT team (this is much needed while you have some doubt)
I highly recommend Verbal Live Prep course to all GMAT aspirants who are looking to improve accuracy and timing in verbal section.

I had already taken a good known verbal course and even after studying verbal part, I was not able to answer verbal questions. Then I found online webinar from E-Gmat and was very impressed with their methodology of Pre-Thinking. With Pre-thinking method and dividing SC questions into parts was very helpful. I started understanding SC questions much better after going some of the verbal online tutorials. Also I found related GMAT OG questions at the end of every tutorial; these really help to sync with official guide. For RC, I was not very sure if I should just skim the passage or read whole passage as I feel I am a slow reader. I learnt 7 step method from E-GMAT after which I realized that though first question takes more time as you are reading the whole passage and taking notes, but then you can answer rest of related passage much quicker.

I am a non native speaker & the first time I gave the gmat exam with minimal study I got V15.This was tooo low!
Next time I did SC,CR ,RC from the tutorials on EGMAT to receive a score of V30.This was with full time work and I did not get any time to revise the SC course.I am extending my E-gmat course and have given myself 40 days to improve my score from V30 to v40'S.According to my ESR report my weakness lies in the SC area and this is where I will put maximum effort.E-gmat has a very structured approach towards learning verbal and remembering RULES thus If you go through all their lessons and revise them before the exam V 35+ should not be a hard task.

Taught by: Japinder Kaur

I purchased both Verbal and Quant e-GMAT courses. Overall I found them as highly useful and fully providing value for money. One of the main merits for me is that the courses are accompanied with audio, which helped to perceive information easier. In addition, the e-GMAT team made great job in visualizing concepts.
The Verbal section is well designed and covers almost all topics which could be encountered during the test, although there are some issues aspects in Sentence Correction section which are not discussed there.
The Quant section provides with general concepts, but it would be difficult to obtain really high score band relying only on this. So I would recommend to look for additional sources of task for practice.
Webinars provided by e-GMAT are worth participating as they dig deeper in details and really boost understanding of discussed topics.

I wrote my GMAT 3 years back in 2012 and scored a 640 with verbal score of 29. That time I prepared using the different books. When I decided to write my GMAT again 3 years later I did not want to be in the same situation. A friend of mine strongly recommended e-gmat verbal course. I enrolled for the course and started following the modules in a disciplined way. The structure of the course made learning simple yet effective. The practice sets helped to create a solid foundation and the scholaranium provided an effective way to track the progress. The webinars are very interactive and focus on the process of solving the problems. I wasn't able to attend any of the live webinars but accessed the recordings and the recordings helped me take my preparation to the next level. At the end the course worked well for me because of its well designed structure and an excellent team of instructors. Follow the course with discipline and the good result will follow.

This review is for: Magoosh Premium
Location: Online

I was really impressed by the videos. I spent the last few days before the exam going through the sentence correction videos. It helped me in improving my verbal from 34 to 41 on the actual test. Also, the questions are close to actual GMAT level. Reading Comprehension was a little tough, but overall the level is very close to the actual exam. Also, the questions cover the whole syllabus, and nothing is amiss. The score approximation is way off, it predicted count 48 and verbal 38, I ended up getting Q50 and V41 :) I will recommend Magoosh as the preferred choice for GMAT preparation.

This review is for: EMPOWERgmat Online Course
Location: Online

I believe EMPOWERgmat was the key piece to me earning my 700. They have a score booster curriculum for those who feel their GMAT abilities have hit a ceiling. This is exactly what I needed. I really liked that they took all the GMAT study plan strategizing out of my hands; their syllabus is easy-to-follow, and as long as you just do what they tell you, your score WILL improve. Rich and Max bring a lot of enthusiasm to their instructional videos, making long study sessions easier to endure. They evoke the "athletic coach persona" and communicate the GMAT concepts and strategies in a way that really motivates you to crush the test. I noticed occasional misspellings in the practice problems in their videos and minor bugs in their online platform (as of 01/16/2016, it looks like they completely revamped and upgraded their platform!), but these small issues never got in the way of my studying. Their website may not have the shiny production value of the large, established test prep companies (i.e. Manhattan GMAT), but it's the value of the content that counts, and EMPOWERgmat delivers.

The most important thing I learned from EMPOWERgmat was to alter my approach and mindset - it's not about how much content you know, it's almost ALL about strategy. Once you nail the concepts down, you have to realize that the GMAT will reward those who treat the test like a business situation. To specify, you have limited resources (time), and the GMAT will reward (with a high score) those who maximize the utility of their limited resources (spending time on problems you know how to solve and/or strategically guessing versus spending all your time on difficult problems that don't count much towards your score anyway). This fundamental shift in mentality completely freed me to not get bogged down in the concepts I didn't know or with which I was not comfortable. EMPOWERgmat hammers this perspective into all of their instruction so that it becomes second nature. This is what paved the way for me to earn that 700. For anyone looking to boost their score or take a high-quality course from the comfort of their home, I highly recommend this course!

I gave my exam yesterday and scored a 730. My split was V48 V42 in maths and verbal respectively. I had enrolled for the E-gmat Sentence correction course and the thing i appreciated most was the sincerity in preparing the audio visuals. When i started out my preparation i used to score around 660, primarily because i was not doing well in sentence correction. Even though i did extremely well in rc and cr , i struggled with sc because i lacked a proper approach. Thankfully E-gmat fixed that.
Egmat provides a good number of practice questions and equally good explanations. Their approach to sentence correction is probably the best among all the prep companies.Even if you cannot follow their exact methodology, the course will equip you with enough knowledge to spot the errors. Overall i feel it was a great decision to purchase this course and it probably pushed my score up by 20-30 points.
