I enrolled in the verbal live prep because of some of the reviews that I saw online. Immediately, I started noticing improvements in my comprehension. EGMAT tutors are dedicated and are really helping MBA aspirants realize their dreams. I tried other GMAT companies as well, but none of them comes even remotely close to EGMAT. The process definitely takes time to learn but it's well worth the efforts. After attending the verbal live prep, and taking the mock tests, I started noticing dramatic improvements not only in my score but also my endurance. If you are serious about scoring high on GMAT, then you must not look further as EGMAT offers the best quality product at the best possible price.

GMAT 720 to 750 using e-GMAT Verbal Online (2 week preparation) September 26 | 2015

Dear GMAT club users,

I gave my 1st attempt in May-2015 after 2 week of preparation using OG-2015 and GMAT Prep tests. I scored a score of 720 (Q50 / V38). Then i had to resume my work duties and was extremely busy with work life.

As i was unhappy with my score, and i knew that i had to tackle the Verbal section properly, i decided to get my ESR (Enhanced Score Report) from mba.com to better analyse my weak areas. The ESR was extremely helpful in helping me understand that my weakest area was Sentence Correction, while on the other hand i had a perfect score in RC.

Thus, i decided to take a 2 week vacation and focus all my attention on SC. I enquired with my friends and looked into courseware from many providers. After a day of careful consideration, i decided to go ahead with e-GMATs Verbal online courseware to focus on SC. Best GMAT related decision. Thanks to my friends for this wise advice and thus the reason for this post, to help my fellow GMAT club peers.

Result was a 750 (Q50 / V41) after just 2 weeks of preparation.

Strengths of the courseware:
1) The course is well structured. It ensures that the courseware is presented in a cogent manner. This ensures you don't forget the earlier portions, as you progress with the courseware.

2) I was much more confident in tackling SC questions after completing this coursework. I am sure you would feel the same even in practice tests. Before the start of the courseware, my success rate on SC questions was 50%. After completion of the course, it shot up to 80%.

3) Courseware tackles modifiers very strongly. In my opinion, its the best part of the SC portion in e-GMAT.

4) The articles by Rajat are a must read.

Weaknesses:
1) The courseware in the initial phase seems a bit boring. Ensure that you carry on without losing trust in the courseware. I felt i am going in the wrong direction, in the first two days of the courware. But i was wrong. Be patient.

2) The online videos are good, but some portions/topics need more polishing and better editing.

Overall Rating i would give is 4.5 out of 5.

Thanks e-GMAT.

Regards,
Ekansh.

I was a re-taker who had earlier taken GMAT in April 2014, when I joined e-GMAT in May 2015. More than a year had passed and I wanted to start my GMAT preps from the beginning. Based on reviews provided in GMATClub and after attending some of the live sessions offered by e-GMAT, I decided to join e-GMAT. The three things that make this course special are:
1. The clear-cut strategies for every question type it offers.
2. The course structure, which takes the student from the basics to the advanced level
3. The proficient instructors it has for delivering its live prep courses. Instructors who are good at handling online courses, with several participants and still not compromising on the quality of the course.

In short, E-GMAT live prep course is for anyone who wants to follow a structured approach in their preparations. This course does what it promises to provide and is a really great course for those aiming for decently good score in GMAT.

Hi

Well I couldn't have asked for more. A jump of 100 points from 560 to 660 in my GMAT Score thanks to E-GMAT CR Course.
Flashback GMAT 1 - Feb - 2015
I had put in 2 months of hardwork. in Dec - January and was all set to take GMAT. Exam went on well and I expected to see a 680- 690 on screen, but to my dismay the screen flashed 560 with V-22. I was devastated that how could I be so far from my target score (I had given only 2 mocks - 650,660), took few weeks off and decided to take a structured approach towards GMAT attempt 2. This time I was not in a hurry but I wanted concrete results.
When I introspected I found CR was my biggeset nemesis. This led to low scores in RC too as the pattern and reasoning is similar in RC Questions. I enrolled for EGMAT - CR course and boy I loved the content. All the content was in a structured manner. I could see improvements. With more confidence I started taking kAPLAN mocks in the month of Aug. Two 680s and One 710 . I booked my GMAT date for Sep 20 - 2015.
I ended up scoring 660 with V34. Although not a great score but atleast it has given me my moral back. I specially want to thank E-GMAT and the team. I want to have one more shot at the GMAT and with the renewed confidence I hope I ll break 700 barrier

E-GMAT's Verbal Live Prep is the one to go with ! September 25 | 2015

I got a 650(Q48, V31) in my first attempt. I wanted to better my verbal score. I looked around for the best verbal course and finally settled for Verbal Live Prep by E-GMAT. I am a non-native speaker, so it was important for me to have a course which gets into the weeds of how to identify errors, group answer choices and use the process of elimination to get to the right answer. This is a 3 step process and nobody perfects it better than E-GMAT. They have got very skilled instructors - people who have graduated from some of the top colleges in India and have beat the GMAT. They know the GMAT game.

I was able to improve by verbal score by 2 points to a 33 and scored a 680(Q49, V33). I could have better utilized the resources if I had more time off from my very demanding job. Anybody looking to get better in the verbal section, needs to subscribe to E-GMAT's verbal course.

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

After giving GMAT couple of times, I was clueless as how to increase my verbal score. After lot of efforts my verbal score didn't improve. In the meantime, I read about e-GMAT - a course for natives. Out of curiosity, I decided to attend the free session for SC. It was something I was really looking for. I was so impressed with the SC free session that I decided to attend the free CR and RC session. After attending the session, I got the confidence that I can still improve in Verbal section. I enrolled for Verbal Live prep. The best thing about the course is the explanation.

SC - After going through the SC course I realized the importance of meaning. The explanations, the LIVE sessions are really worth attending. All the concepts required for the GMAT are well covered and I feel more confident while solving SC questions. My accuracy improved from 50% to ~85% but more importantly I eliminate answers for a specific reason. Thanks e-GMAT for helping me out.

CR - Critical reasoning was one of my strengths, but after attending the prethinking session, time required to solve the CR question went down drastically. e-GMAT CR course provides a systematic approach, which is required to be successful in GMAT. I hope this approach will really help me to save time, which I can use for other difficult problems.

RC - This is the section that troubled me the maximum. However, the method of reading the passage (as explained by e-GMAT) has helped to understand the passage better. If I need to tell in terms of percentage improvement, RC will stand first. I still need to improve my accuracy and timing to get my desired score in GMAT.

I will be writing my exam in ~15 days from now. I hope I can improve on RC and excel in SC and CR to get a score in the range of ~38-40.

This review is for: Optimus Prep™ Optimus Prep Online Class Course | Location: Online | Taught by: Philip

The class course online from optimus prep was terrific. I can’t say enough how happy I am that I found this company and the class was easily worth the money. The other competitors were more expensive by far anyway and there is no reason they would be so much more expensive that I can see. Although it costs less it even has more class time. I was a bit careful at the beginning and called their customer support to find out if there is any reason why they offer more for less. Their support is always available and answered all my questions. I was impressed and gave it a shot!

The class I had took place online in a program called Webex, which works a lot like skype calls but it has a whiteboard in the middle of the screen where powerpoints and pdfs can be loaded, and everyone can communicate and draw easily. There were seven of us but it never seemed to be any trouble to ask questions personally, never felt “crowded”. I especially liked that we took a diagnostic test at the beginning and the tutor used it to create a personal plan for me even though I was just one of the students. My initial score in the diagnostic was only 530 points because I was out of school for a few years and worked in the consulting industry. The tutor did the individual diagnostic test analysis for everyone and then made sure we had class time to cover everything that we needed. I continued taking the practice tests, which were exactly like the GMAT in the sense that they were CATs and the questions were spot on. I improved noticeably bit by bit, always attacking my problem areas on at a time when they appeared. After scoring 3 times above my target score of 670 I took the real GMAT. I am very happy to say that I scored 690! I highly recommend this course and even considering taking a few private tutoring lessons to crack the 700.

First of all, it was super fun. He has such a good sense of humor and he always made me smile while taking courses.
Additionally, I had tremendous difficulty to solve DS/PS problem and hard to get good point on mt GMAT. After my friend recommended me to take his course, it became a lot easy to solve problem and get the idea how to approach the problems easily.
Lastly, he know how to make students get the rough idea of Quant session. I had no idea what the DS and PS are. And DS? That's disaster for me. But, after his first session, I could figure out the differences and how to approach the problem. And he knows what to memorize and what to understand! That helped me alot. Memorizing everything and understanding everything could work for somebody else, but not me. So I need some guidelines. His class suggested that guideline!
Max's class is the easiest way to improve your score. You should try! And you will know what I meant.

GMAT (2nd Attempt: 28 Aug)740
Q 50 V 39 IR 8 AWA 6

After my first attempt in GMAT (690) , I realized i didn’t have a structured approach for my GMAT preparation. When i bumped into Rajat's free webinar about strategies to score 750+, i was impressed with the content of the course. After going through the reviews in gmatclub for the Verbal live prep, i quickly enrolled for it.
Content: this is the best part of the VLP course of eGMAT. They have dissected every possible concept of SC, RC and CR to the minutest level that you absolutely need no other additional material other than OG.
Even after completing OG and MGMAT SC twice during my preparation, I had a lot of scope for improvement in the SC Section after completing the SC Course.
Weekend Webinars: Helps you be on track with the study schedule provided by eGMAT. The discussions are very useful for first timers. the instructors are very friendly and knowledgeable.
They quickly address your concerns both in the classes as well as in the eGMAT forums.
Ability Quizes & Workshops: Very useful in finding out where you stand after you complete the course. I completed these workshops at the very end of the course and it helped me address issues such as timing.
Scholarnium: The best resource of high quality questions with detailed solutions. The responses are well analyzed with respect to timing and difficult level


My only suggestion to the eGMAT team is to explore the possibility of including more questions in the weekend classes.

Overall, i am extremely satisfied with this course. It was one of the main reasons why i had a significant jump in my GMAT verbal score.

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

Once I decided to start for my GMAT, I gave the GMAT prep practice exam and found that I am decent at Quant but my Verbal needs a lot of push. I have bought books from major publications and started going through. I was able to get a good understanding of the concepts in Verbal but what I found missing is the approach that I need to take to solve the questions. So I was not feeling confident and thought of taking a elearning course. From reviews, I understood that e-Gmat emphasizes on the process much and went ahead to buy the Verbal Live Prep. The course provided not only the concepts but emphasized more on problem solving. This is what I like the most about e-gmat.

Going through the course has helped me gain a lot of confidence. Thank you e-gmat !
