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

I started preparing for GMAT somewhere in July 2015. However, owing to work pressure and other personal engagements I couldn't concentrate enough.
I wrote my first mock GMAT Prep Test on 18th September and scored a 650 Q 48 V 32. A miserable score considering the competition in India.

Then I kept studying OGs and other books but my verbal performance did not improve at all.

A senior from work suggested going for eGMAT Verbal. I was apprehensive at first owing to the price. But went ahead with it anyway. I must tell you that this has been the best ivestment I have ever made.

I bought the package on 20th October and appeared for the test on 15th November 2015. Roughly 25 days time for preparation.

I must admit that I had always been overconfident about my grammar but eGMAT helped me a lot to bring me to the level of confidence.

The sentence-correction module is downright outstanding. You learn in small packets that boost your confidence. The material is superb and so is technique that teach you.

Critical Reasoning is an alien subject for most Indian students (non-native English users). eGMAT helped me excel in this aspect. The various components of an argument. The question types. Elimination strategies. And most of all addressing the fear of boldfaced questions.

If you want to clear the verbal section of GMAT with flying colours take this course from e-GMAT.

If I can improve from V 32 to V 50 anyone can.

All the best for your test and prep.

A confident leap from 550 to 680 December 01 | 2015

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

e-Gmat Verbal for Non-native Speakers December 01 | 2015

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

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.

Chris Kane runs a highly engaging, helpful GMAT course December 01 | 2015

This review is for: Veritas Prep Full Course Live Online | Location: Online | Taught by: Chris Kane

‚ÄčI 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!

EMPOWERGMAT helped me get a 710!! (retaker) December 01 | 2015

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.

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

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!

This review is for: Veritas Prep Full Course Live Online | Location: Online | Taught by: Ethan Todras-Whitehill

Ethan was a great teacher and honed in on the fundamental's for GMAT success. He is easy going and brings humor into the lessons to lighten the mood while giving great tips on how to master the GMAT material. He goes above and beyond to answer questions and encouraged us to challenge every GMAT question to find out not only why the correct answer was correct, but also why the wrong answers were wrong. I strongly recommend Veritas and Ethan for any student's studying. Ethan opened my eyes to the tricks the GMAT attempts to play on the test-takers and how to tackle tough problems efficiently.

This review is for: Magoosh Premium | Location: Online

I took the Magoosh Premium course , found it very resourceful.
Especially the videos on CR, SC are the best out there.
Also, the explanations for the various practice questions were more than satisfactory and these were further complemented by their insightful blogs.
The only con is the Math lesson videos and the practice questions provided were very basic, nothing compared to the ones on the actual test. Few Math techniques being used are cumbersome , there are faster and easier ways of doing them (Example: Alligations and Mixtures ).

Overall, a very fine interface and an absolute value for money. If your main aim is to be economical this is the best option.

P.S:I also found the variable playback speed very helpful,especially since some of the videos are a bit slow.

Qunat Online - A Must ! November 25 | 2015

This review is for: e-GMAT Quant Live Prep | Location: Online | Taught by: Krishna Chaitanya

Though I am pretty comfortable with Quant Section as having an engineering background. But then also I opted for Quant Online Course, and would suggest to have this course as in GMAT it is a test of Higher Order Reasoning Skills. Quant in GMAT is not calculation intensive rather it is logic intensive. At e-GMAT this aspect of Quant is taken care of. Also to mention about Scholaranuim Alpha, it is great tool to assess oneself. So people like me, who think that they are quite good in GMAT Quant, I just suggest that to cover up that extra mile from Q-45/49 to Q-51, it is a good platform to do that.

e-GMAT Team, good going, keep it up !
