Before to enroll on e-GMAT course I tried taking courses offered by universities and studying by myself and I just felt that I was wasting my time and money. The e-GMAT Verbal Online course has been helping me to gain confidence, now I’m feeling myself more confident. I’m going to keep you posting about my score once I take the course next March.
The teachers are really good and the way the course is conducted is a must, they are well organized and are focuses on your success.
For me, this is the best course for non-native speakers if you want to succeed on the verbal section.

The e-GMAT Quant Live Prep course has been helping me to gain confidence, now I’m feeling myself more confident. This course helped me to re-learn some math skills that I had forgotten.

I purchased the MGMAT study guides after reading reviews on this forum. I have to say that I was not disappointed. My baseline score was a 610 and after going through the guides and attempting the OG problems, I was able to bump it up to a 690 on test day.

I believe the SC, CR, and number properties books are very helpful. For RC, i disagree with the strategy of taking notes. I found that reading the passage slowly and trying to read for meaning was more beneficial.

As far as the quant resources, they are very good to get you to a reasonable score level. However, I do wish I used their advanced quant guide because I did hit a plateau after making my initial score increase.

It is also important to note that the manhattan cats are not the best indicator of your score or ability level. The manhattan cat quant is much harder than the real thing and the verbal questions do not always represent the official ones.

With that said, the study guides are great resources and I was able to increase my score by 80 points with fairly relaxed, but structured studying.

This is my 3rd attempt at the exam and I took the e-GMAT for the 2nd and the 3rd attempts. I have witnessed a 17 point improvement in my Verbal score from a 23 on my first attempt to 40 in my third attempt. Even though I didn't do as expected in my 2nd attempt, I knew that the under-performance in 2nd attempt was more down to my failure to perform in the test. The easy explanation with the help of slides helps one to understand complex topics. A diagnostic test at the end of each topic helps you assess your understanding of the topic. The newly introduced Scholaranium provides ample practice to master the skills learnt while going through the modules. However, the best judge of my performance was the Verbal Workshop in which I scored a 99 percentile indicating that my preparation was on the right track. The faculty at e-GMAT has always been extremely helpful. One always wonders how doubts will be cleared when attending online courses, but the faculty at e-GMAT has always been prompt in replying to any doubts that I have mailed to them. I ended up with a 710 in my 3rd attempt. However, I intend to give one more attempt in hopes of improving my score one last time. I'll definitely be asking for an extension for my online course.

e-GMAT Quant Live Prep is a relatively new course and it not as famous as eGMAT's verbal course. It might be because e-GMAT verbal course's is designed for non-natives and generally, non natives for e.g Indians are good at GMAT level Quant, so they might not be as enthusiastic about the Quant course as they will be for Verbal course. However, for anyone who is willing to spend a little bit of extra time on the quant section, I would recommend the Quant Live course too as it will help scoring those extra 3-4 points from Q48 to Q51.

Verbal Live Prep is one of the best courses that is out there for non-natives. It is an audio-based course and hence, more interactive compared to reading books. My favourite part of the course would be the way it is structured. The course would start with the simplest of concepts and would end with the really tricky or interesting ones. AND for every topic the course touches, it has a practical as well as an application quiz. So, it is made sure that you have understood the topic and are able to solve within the time frame as well.

While Selecting a course, as almost everyone preparing for GMAT does, I bought the MGMAT books. But as a working individual , I would be almost always exhausted. I didn't want to read a book after coming back from work. I wanted something more interactive and eGMAT's verbal live/online course is more than what one can imagine or ask for. I really found it beneficial during my preparation.

For me, their best would be the SC course. It is so good that you will start following in your daily lives too.

I would strongly recommend the course for anyone and everyone looking to ace the gmat.

I enrolled for e-GMAT courses after failing to get the desired score on the real GMAT. Overall, I increased my score, but my verbal decreased by 2 points. I thought at that time that my greatest weakness was SC. After 1M of preparing, i retook the GMAT, and did not see any improvements. I got my enhanced score report, and to my surprise, the results were not as expected. I thus then decided to improve all the parts of the verbal section.
SC - really awesome explanations..I saw my accuracy improve greatly. Nonetheless, at tough and tricky questions..i still sometimes get wrong...
CR - dang...looks like this is one of my greatest weaknesses..I still struggle with tough Assumptions/Inference/Must be true questions...
RC - to be honest, I haven't even looked into it, as I don't think there are strategies for RC. Though, while preparing for CR, I noticed that my RC improved as well. I try to believe that studying for CR is the reason, though I started to read a lot lately...

Scholaranium - really great portal with lots of questions structured by difficulty level. Feedback though, is way worse than Magoosh's. Sometimes I waited for 5-6-7 days to get a response...

would I recommend the course? definitely. but only if you need to learn on your own pace.

Hi everybody,

I am one of the students of e-gmat course enrolled to the verbal live prep program. As is the case generally with all Indian student, I had difficulties in coping up with e-gmat verbal section.

If you really want to score V35+, one thing that you should definitely look at is to enroll to e-gmat SC course. It gives you the confidence by making sure you understand all sections - (SV Agreement, Pronouns, Modifiers, Parallelism, Comparisons, Idioms, Meaning based questions).

Trust me the toughest question types in the SC are from the parallelism and comparisons. These are made absolutely a cake walk by the e-gmat course. Even the meaning based questions are dealt in depth which makes the section a breeze to crack.

You should definitely try the e-gmat SC course. Get the confidence in the overall verbal section and then upgrade. Atleast that is what i did. Follow the study plan diligently and you can answer almost any SC question.

For SC - Understand everything from e-gmat SC course + solve OG questions + solve GMAT prep questions (Buy, if you dont have them) + solve scholaranium.

Download the GMAT prep questions available on GMAT club for past SC questions. search "GMAT prep questions gmatclub" on Google.

Moving on CR section took a bit of time for me to get complete understanding on. A combination of the CR-Bible and e-gmat course for CR would be ideal in my opinion.

You should definitely only and only solve the OG questions for this module. Solving questions from any other module will confuse you a lot. The quality of the official questions cannot be replicated at all. So stick to official questions. Download the GMAT prep questions available on GMAT club for past CR questions.

When understanding each sub-topic in this section, make sure you absolutely understand Assumptions. If you are able to crack assumption questions, you will be able to solve almost any question. Go in the following direction:

Assumptions -> Strengthen -> Weaken -> Inference -> Evaluate -> Paradox -> Bold face.

e-gmat course asks you to follow an approach called "Prethinking". It worked for me some times and did not work sometime. So choose what is right for you. As i mentioned, a combination of e-gmat CR + power score bible is ideal to crack this section.

Now the RC section:

The most ignored section by everybody. This is the section which will make or break your verbal score eventually. Follow the e-gmat RC course diligently. It has explained the different categories of section in depth with sample questions from that question type.

Make sure you understand the explanation given for the answers to the questions in the RC passage. Your mind will get tuned to find out the way to solve RC questions. Again phenomenal in content coverage.

Sometimes, i felt summarizing every paragraph and then getting to a single line summary of the entire RC passage was difficult to follow during the exam. But nevertheless the approach definitely help to a large extent.

My suggestions finally:

e-gmat course is very flexible. enroll for the course as you get the belief that it is helping you improve in answering the question.

e-gmat course has an absolutely easy upgrade process and will always be ready to help you for any doubts.

All the best everybody!

Absolutely amazing! On Dec 09 I took the GMAT for first time, scored 640 (Q48 V30). As non- native speaker, I knew there was a lot of room to improve on verbal. On Dec 15 got the e-Gmat SC online. At first it seems like is more of the same as the other sources (Veritas, MGMAT), but by the end of the modules I noticed that my approach to the SC questions was automatic, I knew what to look for on the questions, saving a lot of time for RC. Because of work, I studied from Dec 15 to Jan 03 only on the weekends. On Jan 04 I took the GMAt again, unfortunately my quant score was worse Q44, but my verbal score went from V30 on Dec 09 to V41 on Jan 04. Total score 700.
My only regret is that I neglect the quant section, during the weeks before the my second attempt.
Bottom of line, those guys from e-gmat know what they are doing. I totally recommend the verbal sections for non-native speakers.

I would recommend the sentence correction (SC) course for non-native English speakers because it provide concise and clear concepts of GMAT English grammar. E-gmat have its own teaching style that I really like it so much. E-gmat created a rule for every concept that makes it very easy for me, as a non-native speaker, to understand, memorize, and apply those concepts in real situation. Practice questions after the end of each chapter also play an important role in helping me to fully understand and know how to apply the concept when I encounter with each type of problems. Last but not least, almost all of e-gmat contents are interactive contents that are not boring as I have ever experienced with the traditional way of study that is solely reading from a book. In conclusion, even though I had studied for the GMAT for a while before I purchased the course from e-gmat, I think this course is still very valuable for me because of the above mentioned reasons.
