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 :)

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

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.

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.

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.

E-Gmat proved to be pivotal in me getting a V39 on the eventual GMAT exam. It is a good starting point for international students. All the concepts were explained clearly and the videos proved to be a very good tool to learn.
I also liked the concept of scholaranium and the analyses provided after each test. The ability to track my performance after 5-6 tests really helped me identify my weaknesses.
The tests after each section or topic were also very helpful, I just wish that the questions in scholaranium were not a repeat of the questions that I had already practiced as that didn't reflect the correct score that I should have achieved.
Overall, I would definitely recommend any non native speakers to go for the EGMAT verbal course.

Being a non native I was struggling to improve score in verbal. When I started the course my score used to be 20 in mocks. E-GMAT verbal online course clears the concepts in very structured fashion. Questions during and after completion of each topic helps in strenthening the concepts. There is huge data of questions which cover all variety of GMAT questions. The solution provided to these question is again very well defined and practising these questions train your brain to start solving questions in correct pattern and right solution. e-GMAT verbal online course is very good for Indian students. I improved score in verbal with 17 points in just 20 days of preparation.

I took The Economist MBA test prep. I loved that it is adaptive, and after my second practice test of scoring relatively well, it adjusted the level of difficulty to help me answer the more difficult questions. I felt that the verbal part really emphasizes a few key points, such as the use of 'one' and other sentence correction errors. While studying I kept wondering why it was so repetitive, but when I scored in a high percentile for the verbal portion I then understood why. I also really enjoyed the 1-on-1 tutoring sessions and found them very helpful. My only suggestion to those considering using The Economist is to schedule the tutoring sessions well in advance, as they tend to fill up quickly.

Verbal Gmat is a great asset and helped me study with more focus and precision. It allowed me to be immersed in the world of the GMAT Verbal and understand the dynamics of the questions types as well the nuances required to master the questions.

The live sessions were great and helped reinforce skills learned in the lectures. The good thing about it is that , these lectures and live sessions give context to the GMAT material so they become more alive and your can absorb it better. I found that when reading the books, it became a bit boring but with visual learning you do absorb the material much better.

I am generally regarded as one of the students who is very very good at quant.. But very few people knew the credit shud actually be given to guru sir...
I scored 760 in my Gmat.. 247 in my NMAT.. I'm planning to do my mba from one the top B schools in the world... A major part of the credit of all the success I'm enjoying should be given to him.. He was the one who spend lot of time discussing various things with me.. Explaining the problems which I Cudnt solve.. The class used to be scheduled till 8pm but sir used to teach till 9 and not even a single student in the class used to feel like it's Getting late... Sir used to induce a lot of energy into the students which helps them a lot not only to achieve their short term goal of cracking the exams but also to do well after Getting in to the actual course. He never used to teach how to solve the problem.. Infact he used to make us think in how many different ways a problem can be solved..May be he dint remember who I am because he treats every one the same way helping them out in every possible way..
Sir I'm the one whom you helped a lot in achieving the scores and kept me on par to get into the Top B schools in the world.. Thanks for all the support
