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

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

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.

590 to 700 - EMPOWERgmat gave me the extra boost! January 16 | 2016

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!

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

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.

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

Having signed up for more expensive, flashier online courses the year before I was ultimately disappointed that I was still unable to break the 600 mark. EmpowerGMAT had been recommmended to me by a friend who had used them to achieve a higher score and is now studying at a top B-school. I immediately liked their simpler interface, clear, uncluttered and uncomplicated presentation style and their very well delivered instruction. Their efforts to actually put the test in context - WHY the B-schools actually care about the test - were particularly helpful as no other course had done this before. As a busy vet I was unable to commit to in-person instruction or online classes that dictated being present at specific time. EmpowerGMAT's online, on-demand course was perfect for me as a result. Although I made a schoolboy error on test day (ran out of time on the Quant section - Doh!) I did ultimately break that illusive 600 mark and raised my score. The level of customer service I have received has also been exceptional, with prompt, helpful responses exemplifying their focus on us, their customers. Thanks EmpowerGMAT :)

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

e-gmat has helped me in a long way in improving my verbal score from 24 to 36 (12 points improvement). The Verbal Live prep is exclusively design for those who lacks in basics and has a very simple language and examples to make a student grasp the fundamentals. The Workshops included in this course are really an eye opener and gives a final kick to your preparations. Moreover, SC with emphasis on understanding the meaning rather than divulging into terms is unique approach and is a differentiating factor. I have been greatly benefited by this and its a must for anyone struggling in verbal.Their latest addition of Scholarnium section which has got excellent combination of GMAT type question of various level of difficulties provide with you with final touch on your preparation

This review is for: Kaplan GMAT Prep - Live Online PLUS Course | Location: Online | Taught by: Joseph Tambornino

The Live Online PLUS was a great tool that offered me many resources to prepare for the GMAT. The GMAT is structured in a way that it will benefit you to learn HOW to take the test due to its unique scoring system and questions. After completing the course and putting in the time to practice the strategies taught, you will be much better off when the time for the real test comes around. It is important though that you complete all of the practice materials you are instructed to do. Put in the practice time and use the strategies taught, and you will improve your GMAT score without a doubt. But in case you don't, you'll be able to get your money back with the Higher Score Guarantee.

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

It was my 4th GMAT attempt. The first attempt was way back in 2013 so I wouldn't consider it for this review. I had a score of 690 (Q50 V33) on the 2nd attempt. I wanted to apply to the top schools, hence I was a little concerned about the score. I decided to take a retake but due to unavoidable circumstances didn't do well on the 3rd attempt. I wanted to give one final attempt by concentrating on verbal. I used to be active on gmat club and heard about e-gmat verbal prep and had a discount offer in my mail. I took e-gmat verbal live prep because my verbal score was on the lower side.

I started with Sentence Correction. I soon realised that the content was well planned and structured in a way that made learning pretty easy. I followed a routine to complete the content and simultaneously did the assessments, which helped me to get an idea of my strong and weak zones. I used to attend the live classes and workshops as well.

I scored a 730 (Q51 V37) on the 4th attempt.

I wont stretch it any longer. If you feel you're not bad at Verbal but are not able to score well on your mock tests or the actual GMAT, this course is for you. This preparation helped me to reach the correct answer faster than I used to. this helped me to reach the difficult questions faster and afford the time to spend on them. I still don't have a role model score, but I have just enough to give you all a hope who need that wee bit extra in verbal to cross the 700 mark.

The guys at e-gmat are amazing. Their response time to your queries will amaze you. Krishna can be a bother at times ;). I must applaud Shraddha for the SC section.

Practice hard but dont run like a bull. Planning and strategising are important. How to tackle the exam is as important as knowing the right answers. Well this is not the most structured review. Kindly bear with me on this as it was a sudden flow of emotions that I have tried to articulate.

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

I am very happy with the two e-GMAT Verbal Online courses that I used (SC & CR). This courses were important tools in my path from 30V to 40V in 3 months.

I decided to take these online courses after some research on the web and how it was rated for non-native speakers like me. The reviews were right! The videos and the sources that I found there were very easy to understand and gave me an effective approach to face verbal questions.

Finally, despite some problems with the speed of the videos I found that the platform was very friendly. I definitely recommend this course to complement the preparation for GMAT of any non-native speaker.
