I thoroughly enjoyed the Kaplan Gmat Prep - Live Online Plus Course. I was referred to Kaplan by an associate utilizing the online prep course for his LSAT. I originally wanted to take onsite courses as I felt that it was better suited for my learning style but I eventually grew to enjoy and appreciate the online format. My instructors were very knowledgable and helpful and increased my confidence for test day. Each of the Kaplan instructors I worked with genuinely wanted to help and also were quick to respond via email. I improved drastically from my initial diagnostic test. Additionally, the thousands of questions that are available to you as a Kaplan student via the test bank makes test prep easy. Finally, the onsite test day experience that is exclusive to Kaplan helped ease my nerves on test day. Taking a practice exam at the same testing center that I took my actual GMAT was very helpful! I would definitely recommend this course.

I absolutely recommend this as a MUST have course for GMAT!The technique and method is exceptional,practice questions are very helpful! I like their sentence correction the BEST! and please rather than paying hefty amounts on coaching just buy this course you wont regret it.
Egmat offers detail like no other book or course for verbal! I love their scholaranium too!
I would suggest making a proper schedule and treating this course as your go-to thing for success in GMAT.Make sure you keep solving all the OG links also that are mentioned at the end of each module.

Hi Rajat/Payal,

This is Sai Kiran and I am a user of eGMAT Verbal Online subscription.

I am highly excited to share my GMAT success story. I scored 680 in my actual gmat with Q 49, V 34, AWA 6 and IR 8.

This was my 3rd attempt. In each of the last two attempts I scored 550.

Attempt 1: 550 (score cancelled) Q 47 V 17

I took up the subscription of eGmat after my 1st attempt.

I spent a month exclusively on Verbal using eGMAT verbal online.

Attempt 2: 550 (score submitted) Q 42, V 25, IR 5 and AWA 6

Now I felt little weird looking at my Quant scores. My strong area is Quant but surprisingly the scores didn't reflect my strength. I used to constantly score 51 or 50 in my gmat club CATs. However, looking at the improvement in Verbal scores I was elated and motivated. With this energy & enthusiasm I took my 3rd attempt (mentally it was my last attempt).

Attempt 3: 680 (score submitted); Q49, V34, IR 8, and AWA 6.

My entire focus in my 3rd attempt was on improving the accuracy in CR and applying the strategies during the crunch times. I stopped taking full length mocks as I wanted my full attention on improving accuracy rather than on fetching scores.

In my latest attempt, I was pretty sure about my IR and Quant performance but the real demon to crack was Verbal.

Though I was feeling the time pressure, I did not divert from the strategy. The task at hand was not to loose my focus and to keep adopting my strategies and elimination techniques.

Finally I got my score. I dreamt of the magic number 700. But 680 is not a bad score when I look at my background.

I must definitely thank the entire team of eGMAT for putting up such a wonderful material for non natives. The overall approach/methodology built by eGMAT is extraordinary. The modules are broken into sub-modules with pre and post assessment quizzes further followed by application files is really meticulous. The verbal online module has definitely increased my confidence levels specially in the CR which is devil. The performance in the ability quiz of SC kept me motivated. eGMAT helped me master the SC keeping the time constraint in mind.

I would strongly recommend eGMAT especially non-natives who wish to ace and crack GMAT.

The latest quant quiz is extremely helpful. I love those quizzes. They keep pushing the concept levels.

The gear now shifts to the next level. Applications to the colleges.

Thanks a lot team eGMAT.

Regards

Sai Kiran

I took help of the e-GMAT Verbal Online followed by the Verbal Live courses for my GMAT verbal preparation. Based on my research and the fact that I wanted a study at your own pace kind of a program that wasn't limited to weekend classes, I chose e-GMAT over others. e-GMAT fit the bill in terms of convenience. The verbal online material for the sentence correction section was very well organized and focussed on the topics that you were frequently tested on GMAT. I didn't find the other sections of the material really helpful or worth the money. While the material definitely helped me improve my verbal score from a 30 to 34, it didn't help me achieve my target score of 37-40 on verbal. The verbal live sessions didn't add much value to me. After scoring a 34 on my first attempt, I had a phone call with Rajat Sadana, the CEO of e-GMAT and he convinced me to sign up for the verbal live sessions. I ended up with the same 34 on my second attempt as well. I'd recommend their sentence correction package but nothing else.

Taught by: Chris Kane

​I thoroughly enjoyed having Chris Kane as my main Veritas Prep Live Online GMAT prep course, with a shoutout to Brandon Pierpont as my course TA. With this class, I was able to raise my score 50 points from my best practice test to my final score in just over a month. My study schedule (1 month) proved to be rather aggressive and I wouldn't necessarily recommend anybody duplicating it (there were a lot of materials and strategies to master), but it's certainly possible to get a strong score in a short time working with Veritas and Chris/Brandon.

I can't reccomend Chris enough. He literally helped write the books that Veritas uses in its course, and he knows his stuff. I feel like if we could have stumped him in our class, we would have. I don't think it's possible. He is a great communicator and highly engaging, which is understandably a difficult thing to do in the online format. But I feel like he had a strong rapport with each of us, and even encouraged fun banter among the students. This made the class sessions welcomed parts of my weekly routine.

I felt the course books did an excellent job of introducing the material one needed to understand going into the GMAT. The course itself introduced strategies I found extremely useful, including in areas in which I felt I was already strong. The homework problems drove everything home for me. If I had one issue with the program, it was that I felt the Veritas practice tests were significantly harder than the GMAC practice tests. While I agree with Veritas that it is better to offer a practice test that is harder than the real GMAT than one that is easier in that it will challenge the student more, I felt discouraged when I saw my scores were not making progress. I felt at that point in time I was more in need of a confidence boost than a gut check, but I suppose that's not what everybody needs in order to excel. Anyway, all turned out well for me in the end, so I can't complain too much.

Overall, I highly reccomend this course and format, and if you can get in with Chris Kane, do so!

This review is for: EMPOWERgmat Online Course
Location: Online

I got the score of 710 (48Q 39 V) during my re attempt at the gmat and have tried a couple of products during this time & EMPOWER GMAT helped me get over that 700 mark.

Context of the Score: consistently scoring 700 plus in the mock tests but not able to replicate during the actual exam due to various factors and my sc accuracy was erratic under time pressure. Used E gmat verbal course(Also very good,especially for non natives ) to set a very solid verbal base . My previous score was 650 (47q and 35V)


I followed the verbal score booster plan and it was excellent for the following reasons

1) Helped improve my SC accuracy significantly while also reducing the time i took per question. Their course is also pretty short and effective. Great if time is limited.

2)RC - although i have always read the entire passage. EMPOWERGMAT really emphasized this and their note taking strategies are great

3)Their insight into the test and how the GMAT works is fantastic and is alone worth paying for (reduced my test day anxiety )

If you are anything like me and not able to figure out why you are unable to replicate mock performances on the actual GMAT ,then id recommend this course. If you have more questions i'm happy to answer them. For me, Empower worked out to be a great finishing course.

I took the e-GMAT Verbal online course which helped me improve my verbal score by 9 points. The course not only provides an excellent framework for the content but it also provides a repeatable process for success. I clearly saw in improvement in my verbal ability as i progressed through the course. Upon completion of the course materials, the Scholarium platform specifically highlighted my weaknesses which allowed me to focus on topics that required more attention. The live sessions are extremely helpful in reinforcing strategies learned throughout the course. I am extremely satisfied with my investment in e-GMAT and would recommend the course to anyone and everyone committed to an improvement in their verbal abilities.

This review is for: Magoosh Premium
Location: Online

I purchased the premium product, but mainly used it to focus on increasing my math score. Great videos/resources, with thorough explanations. The 3 month daily study schedule also helped keep me accountable and on track. The additional resources are also key to your success with a full time job. The flashcards are an easy way to practice your math skills while on the metro commute to work. I had taken the GMAT once before without a course, but was unsatisfied with my score. Magoosh was more flexible than Princeton Review/Kaplan and was perfect for self-study. Highly recommend this course!
