I have GMAT in August 2013, received a low score in verbal and planning it again in March 2013. with e-GMAT's verbal course, I already feel the difference in my prep levels.

the best part about the course is their process oriented approach to verbal questions. As you practice more, the approach is set in your brain and verbal questions become easy. All the questions in their Scholaranium are authentic and similar to Official Guide questions. You still have to remember a lot of grammar stuff though!! the Course is extensive with 24X7 online support. It has really helped me and I cant wait for my GMAT exam in March!

This review is for: Magoosh Premium | Location: Online

I have been using a variety of course material but was still unsatisfied with the way SC was dealt with. Being a non-native speaker, I was especially anxious about this part. That is when a GMAT buddy recommended Magoosh to me and I am glad I tried. Till I used Magoosh, I had been through a lot of theory which I found difficult to apply. Although going through Magoosh’s SC videos were exhausting, but at the end of it I realized I had a firm handle over my concepts. These high-quality videos are well-researched and well-explained. The thing the Magoosh does right is that it not only goes into great depth but it also uses a lot of examples to drill that concept in. Additionally, the tips and concepts illustrated in the videos are of really high quality. The CR and RC areas are decently covered too. All the videos are short, exhaustive and easily comprehensible. They do use a lot of jargons, but you will get used to it.
As for the quant, being an Asian, I was already pretty decent with quant and didn’t need much help on that front. But I didn’t regret the quick refresher that Magoosh gave me. A lot of the tips were really handy especially the pacing tips.

Additionally, the almost 1000 practice questions that Magoosh have put up are, in my opinion, one of the best in its class and one of the most GMAT-like questions out there. The questions not only test on a variety of concepts but also test these concepts repeatedly so that the student learns from repetition and becomes confident with his/her skills. Each question is followed up by a video and text explanation and gives a link to the related concept videos and theory. The tags assigned to the questions along with the ability to flag a question for review, makes not only the question solving but also the revision very easy.

In all, Magoosh is the perfect one stop solution to all your GMAT-woes. It starts from the scratch with its comprehensive and high quality videos and brings you to your zenith with its high level questions and tips for exam taking.

eGMAT's Quant Scholarium February 07 | 2016

I had the opportunity to try the Quant Scholaranium Beta version. At first I had no expectation out of these questions. But boy was I in for a surprise. The questions were of really good quality with a good level of difficulty. I found them to be more GMAT-like than the questions of a lot of other GMAT-Prep providers. Note that these questions are not for the faint hearted. Pick this course up only if you are already on the Q49 level but still want more. The 2nd best thing about Quant Scholarium is the explanations for the questions. They are not only logical but they also give you different ways to solve each questions. I used to even go through questions that I had got correct just to find out a more time efficient way of solving the question. The UI is pretty neat and they have done a good job by keeping tags for various topics, difficulty level and type of questions (PS/DS). This enabled me to target my preparation. I picked up the topics that I found difficult first and then worked my way down. The quantity of questions are good (711 questions and approx. 250 of them are categorized as hard) and should be more than enough practice for the exam. The option to flag a question is a plus. The 3rd best thing about Quant Scholarium is the analytics which is by far the best that I have seen. The Dashboard and the Skill Data tab gives some pretty neat analytics which help identify specific weak areas. The landing page calculates and displays various statistics that helped me to identify my weak areas. So, for example, I found out that while I was pretty good with Probability, I needed to work on Permutations and Combinations. The Attempts tab helped me keep track of my performance and gave me a “grade” of sorts (weighted average) of my performance.
All in all I am pretty satisfied with eGMAT’s quant scholarium. This course came at the right time and now I am more confident of “breaking” the Q49 plateau.

This review is for: Magoosh Premium | Location: Online

I would like to rate the Magoosh experience as quite satisfactory. Having given my first practice GMAT test at 530 to getting a 650 in the actual test in a short span of one and half months. I feel the program did its job quite well. Having good videos for all the concepts helped me learn. There one month study plan is very comprehensive and challenging.
I would say the quant content was quite good and involved a great number of practice problems with excellent video explanations.
I am satisfied with the verbal part. Though I feel after going through the whole verbal practice I could not improve much....but though the problem could be entirely in me not them.

e-GMAT - Best Course for GMAT Verbal February 06 | 2016

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

Being a non native English speaker, I took e-Gmat's verbal online course after I attended a free webinar from E-gmat and found it helpful. The content of the course is very good. The course helps to go into details without making it complicated. The SC section is exhaustive and explains in great detail. Their approach to sentence correction is probably the best among all the prep companies. The practice tests in each module helps in fine tuning my preparation. I strongly recommend candidates to take this course to succeed in gmat's verbal section. They also offer some free concepts on their website where you can see first hand the quality of their resources.

best prep tool for score range of 550-630 February 05 | 2016

This review is for: Magoosh Premium | Location: Online

Magoosh is a good tool for GMAT aspirants, quant questions are very useful to students, In GMAT real exam I got some questions same as in magoosh quant. coming to verbal section this section is a quite different from math’s, It requires complete knowledge of English along with lots of patience to read passages. I felt magoosh passages are a bit lengthier than GMAT orginal exam.
Positives:
• Great flexibility to practice questions as we like,
• Magoosh score predictor is very accurate.
• Explanation of questions and their answers is very nice.
• Customer service is good, reply for doubts will be addressed soon.
• Magoosh YouTube videos like Tuesdays with Kevin are very useful.

Considerations: The only thing I feel wrong with Magoosh is the slow pace of English lessons.

EMPOWERgmat Works! Best Option! February 05 | 2016

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

Fellow GMAT test takers,

Like most of you, I struggled when I first started studying for this test. I paid for an expensive tutor/online course, I bought a ton of study books and I was not seeing the results I wanted.

After months of studying I was stuck at 590, Then I came across EMPOWERgmat. EMPOWERgmat got me to 650 and into my top MBA school. My biggest improvement was from a 42 to a 47 in the quant section.

I am a visual person so it was extremely helpful for me to see the problems solved out in front of me on the screen with clear, concise explanations. I had done a lot of the same questions from the big book already (from the other expensive online course I took) but the way EMPOWERgmat explained the problems and the short cuts available made SO MUCH MORE SENSE!

Not only does this program work out the problems with you, pause for you to solve them yourself, it also shows you short cuts for math and how to triage problems that are not worth your clock time. I learned a lot of strategy tips from EMPOWERgmat, something I did not consider beforehand.

I also liked how the program is organized, it allows you to jump around to your problem areas and then quizzes you on them after you finish the problem set.

Make EMPOWERgmat your go-to when it comes to studying for the GMAT, you won't regret it.

Good luck out there!!

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

in my first attempt of GMAT i couldn't score well (640) and was looking for some courses that may help me overcome the problems i was facing. i knew that preparation was not my problem, rather i was missing the unique guidance that one requires to become a winner. during this search for ways to improve my GMAT score, i found EmpowerGmat website. initially i was a bit hesitant to undertake the EmpowerGMAT online course because of it's price tag, but the money spent was really worth it as the course helped me to identify the minute mistakes i was making and pushed me to overcome the mistakes i was overlooking. EmpowerGMAT online course transformed me from an average GMAT taker to a really outstanding GMAT performer. in short, EmpowerGMAT helped me to outperform my expectations.

Magoosh is great. Their concept videos are incredibly detailed and give you a great foundation for everything you'll need. Additionally, their practice problems have video solutions that walk you through every step so you're never lost and know exactly what you may have done wrong. I would definitely recommend Magoosh to anyone who is serious about getting a top score. Between their study plans and content, they are one of the best out there. Before Magoosh I didn't know the mechanics of sentence correction on the GMAT and would choose answers that "sounded" best. I wanted something that would help me learn how to actually solve SC questions and not just make educated guesses. The only thing I think they could do better would be their CATs.

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

Very extensive and structured approach to GMAT Verbal. Recommended for non natives, and for natives who are looking for a theoretical/structured approach to SC/CR/RC

I found the CR course to be helpful as there are a number of 'drills' per concept, enabling one to develop good 'thinking habits'. I would recommend the CR course for those who are beginning their studies.

Verbal Scholaranium is excellent as the questions are tough, explanations logical, and presentations clear. Furthermore, the explanations are provided in such a way that they are an extension of the course concepts - opposed to a short and brief summary of 'some' errors that many other test prep companies choose to provide.

Highly recommended
