E-gmat quant course is very insightful and the course is very knowledge oriented. The various tests conducted in the e-gmat quant course helps to brush up the foundation levels and it increases your understanding of the subject very well. I hope to see more e-gmat practice tests. the instructors are very prompt if you address any query. The general quizzes, the test scores are very apt to the GMAT score and to understand your score level and the loop holes while attempting the tests. Thank you gmat for the support and i m looking forward to improve my score and I hope you help me boost up my score levels in the real GMAT Test.

The verbal course is well structured and tailored to the needs of non natives.Video concepts, quizzes, OG questions,application files helped me to Understand the concepts well. The way they divided OG questions according to topics is a commendable gob. Their 3 step process of solving questions, makes life much easier. I had some difficulty in Tenses and Parallelism. After going through the slides, and practicing the questions, now i am able to solve 80% of the question correctly. The course has an effectiveness of a private tutor, and doesn't cost much. Audio visual learning actually engages your ability to read. The way the whole course is designed is really commendable and highly recommended to all for whom verbal is not their strengths, especially non-natives.

I took a class under Ethan Todras-Whitehil and he's hands down one of the best teachers in this business. He's super funny and super interactive. He always stays back after class to help you out.

This course is pretty advanced so you do need some prior knowledge before coming in. Otherwise you can get up to date by doing the practice assignments before each class (its LONG).

This course is perfect if you have a 550-650 and you want to aim higher.

I immediately took the GMAT right after my class was over (without doing any further practice tests, etc.) and I improved my score by 100. Not bad at all. Can't wait to rally put in the time and see how it goes in a few months time.

Thank you e-gmat for making this happen, especially after my score of 610 (Q47,V27) in the first attempt. I am glad that I invested in the right course to achieve a whopping 120 point improvement. I give the entire credit to e-gmat course.

You guys are brilliant in analysis of each section in both Quant and Verbal. Your emphasis on attacking the question only after understanding the intended meaning of the question and brilliant explanation of all questions (with AV) in scholaranium really helped me reach my target score. With umpteen questions of excellent quality for practice and awesome analytics I never felt the need to buy any other book other than OG. The strategy sessions also helped me to get my priorities right in the last few weeks before the exam. Last but not the least the live sessions were well designed with very patient and enthusiastic tutors like Krishna, Payal, Rajat, Shradha, Japinder. You guys made me look at the finer details of a question which I completely ignored in my first attempt. Particularly your explanation of all the answer choices and why a wrong answer choice is wrong helped me cement my understanding. I am in a time zone (south korea) where the live sessions start at midnight. Though I could not attend all sessions because of odd timings, I could always catch up with the help of recordings.

Finally big kudos to all of you. You made the course look like some science subject with a systematic and structured content which amazed me. I somehow trusted the course and followed it religiously and it didn't disappoint me. I wish I had known about the course earlier during my first casual attempt. Anyway no regrets. Thank you.

This review is for: Magoosh Premium
Location: Online

firstly I read the reviews and decided to chose Magoosh. I was hesitating because I had no idea about online courses. My score was around 540. I did not expect a high score. But anyways, I registered and I do not regret! Yes, a lot of the information Magoosh provided is not on the books and the tactics really work (Especially in analytical writing). I am not a good writer at all but my AWA score is 5.00. I worked 7 months. I wathced all videos. And the result? My GMAT score is 710. Still I could not believe that I got this score because I am not a native speaker.
Thank you Magoosh and thank you Mike McGary. You are the best.

This review is for: Economist GMAT Tutor Premium Prep
Location: Online
Taught by: Jake Wengroff

Highest reviews for Economist GMAT Tutor.

Loved how the model adapted to pinpoint weaknesses and throw you more questions in those areas. I didn't have a lot of extra time to study for the GMAT so I appreciated the fact that every minute was used well and no time was wasted. The program also forces you to stay active in reading and solving problems whereas other online programs include watching videos which allows you to become passive in your studying. I would much rather spend my time trying out problems and going through the wrong ways to solve a it than watch a video of a tutor showing me how to solve.

Also felt the questions in the practice tests were very similar to those of the real GMAT so when test day came I was confident going through the exam.

But ultimately the results speak for themselves, I went from 670 to 780 using the Economist GMAT Tutor program. For what it's worth, my strategy was to study for about an hour a day for about 3 months. 5 weeks out I started taking a practice test each Friday, reviewed it Saturday and tried to schedule a tutor session on the Sunday/Monday afterwards. I also had the same tutor for every online session (Jake Wengroff) which was very helpful as we were able to build a good rapport.

The Economist prep program was excellent for me as I wanted to get the preparation done in about 2-3 months. Under that timeframe, working through lots of books is not an option, and this program allows you to quickly zoom in the topics which are difficult for you. I found that my quant section was initially weaker than I expected, and the program resolves that by persistently throwing problems at you in the categories where you make lots of mistakes. The personal tutor sessions are also very valuable to clear the last areas of doubt, but also to talk general test taking strategy. Overall, this program lifted my score substantially and I found the overall experience very user friendly.

EGMAT SC and CR

I got a 640 in my first GMAT attempt in November and was crestfallen. I took a one month break. During this period I came to know about e-GMAT's SC and CR course and decided to give it a try. It has been a consistent score improvement since then for the last 4 months or so and my verbal scores in the mocks have consistently touched 40. My next GMAT attempt is scheduled in May 2016 and I am confident of getting a 720 plus score thanks to the structured e-GMAT approach to solving verbal questions. I will recommend it to anyone who wants to hit the 90th percentile in GMAT verbal.

This review is for: e-GMAT Verbal Online

My GMAT journey is a long one. From 2013 to 2015, I took it five times: 630-> 700 -> 720 -> 710 -> 770. As a non-native speaker, I have to say e-gmat indeed helped me to cross the 750 mark.

The first four times, I worked very hard and I’m very persistent. I studied all the materials you’ve heard of and I’ve put hundreds of hours into it. However, I still couldn’t reach my target score.

Then I began to realize GMAT is a test that requires not only hard work, but also an effective strategy and balanced mind. So when I got a lower score the fourth time, I took a chance with e-gmat and bought the verbal online course. Given the fact that I got big fellowship from a top 15 school, I believe the two hundred dollars is probably the best investment I’ve made so far.

I’m not saying e-gmat is the solution to all GMAT problems. I only testify that e-gmat approach for verbal worked very well for me. First, it helps you identify your strengths and weaknesses, which will help you better allocate your time and efforts on different sections. Secondly, its ‘meaning analysis’ approach to tackle sentence correction seems the best approach to me. I couldn’t think of other better way to prepare for this SC section. Thirdly, its CR problems are difficult so the real GMAT problems may seem easier for you. In addition, its free webinars on how to prepare for GMAT strategically are priceless, because even if a test taker is proficient in every individual section, he/she may still not able to achieve her best when all three types of problems are mixed together. Not to mention GMAT is computer adaptive. There’s just so much useful information provided in those webinars.

Anyway, as someone who used to not believe test prep courses, I wholeheartedly thank e-gmat.

Taught by: Shraddha Jaiswal

e-GMAT verbal live prep is a best course available out there for non-natives. I signed up for e-GMAT verbal live prep and started preparing with sentence correction section. Thanks to AV methodology that I could improve my GMAT SC to a great extent. My accuracy level reached 90%. I attended 2-3 verbal live workshops as well. They were terrific. I am a great fan of Shraddha Jaiswal. The way she attacks SCs just blows my mind away. I learnt alot from her explanations. However, I couldn't complete GMAT RC due to some personal issues. CR is more or less OK, but I didn't find it very interesting, TBH. I kind of did CR on my won.
