Knewton's course, in the true sense was an awesome course. It was just that I got really busy in July mid to Aug mid and that affected my score drastically.

Even though I did not see the guaranteed increase in my score, I still strongly recommend this course. Do it not for the sake of the increase in 50 points, but for the sake of gaining grounds for GMAT prep.

Actually, I felt that you do not need any other course if you begin with this course. It has everything to teach you, concepts and also well-placed exercises.
The course is very well setup and takes on pace slowly. There are a total of 13 Lessons which a person has to go through. There is a related pre-test to evaluate your stand before you proceed to Video instructions. The Video instructors are calm and they explain things in much details. If you are patient enough, you will see yourself grasping stuff. After the videos, the concepts are tested in quizzes. Each of the lessons has a concepts such as Algebra and Sentence Correction (one from Quant and one from Verbal). Besides the core concepts (necessary to complete for money-back guarantee), there are several other exercises to do, if someone wants to practice more. You will see mid term tests also. Each quiz gives you a true feedback and brilliant explanations. The full length tests are spread across the 13 lessons.

There is a section which gives a solid feedback on how you are progressing, topic wise. If you are not satisfied by the answers given you can jump to forums for quick reply. Also, if you find forgetting a concept, you can directly click on the link given with your wrong answer.

In my humble opinion, this course was really nice, and I would advice all to take it.

e-gmat CR

  [ What's this? ]

Improvement: 70 Points  |  Verbal:        |  Quant:

I did this course along with e-gmat SC course, while I found the SC course really good and ground gaining, I was not able to grasp the CR concepts well. The method used to crack the CR questions is very lengthy and took lot of time. And time-factor is very important as far as GMAT exam is concerned. The reason why I might have not gained much out of this course can be that I did this course within a month of my exam.

Still, the course is very well designed (just like the SC course) and has tests at different levels. I sincerely feel that the method did not work with me, but it might work for others. May be if you are just starting your GMAT prep and are done with CR Bible, and you still have 2-3 months in hand, you can try this course and it can prove beneficial for you!

I gained 70 points over my first GMATprep exam that I appeared in December, 2011, from 580 to 650. But I would attribute this mostly to e-gmat SC course, which I highly recommend.

An awesome SC course

I would sincerely like to thank e-gmat for creating such a wonderful course. The SC course is very comprehensive and it covers a lot of stuff. If you have been preparing for GMAT for long, and still don't feel confident of your SC skills, then e-gmat SC is for you.

The course is interactive and has tests as per the topic. It refreshes all the topics that you have read from Manahattan SC Correction book, and t teaches through a video (if I am not wrong, hearing instructions is a better way to learn language syntax etc. than just reading).

The course has been divided into 3 levels and each level has a separate qualifying test. The explanations are lucid and concise. The methods used to explain the questions is also nice.

Overall, I will highly recommend this course for any non-native to learn sentence correction through this course. Even if you know all the fundamentals of SC, then also the course will help you gain more grounds. Because of this course that I did, my general English usage has also improved, which is reflected in the mails that I type to client and seniors, and people are impressed with my improved English.

Thanks a lot e-gmat, once again to create such a wonderful course. I gained 70 points over my first GMATprep exam that I appeared in December, 2011, from 580 to 650.

A Great Testing Center in Peoria
May 21 | 2012

       By vix joined: August 15, 2011 | 189 | 27 |
Date of your test:  11 May 2012   Appointment time:  afternoon
The reviewer would recommend this test center to others: Highly Recommend   Location:   Peoria, USA
I attempted my GMAT at this center. It was a cool place with no disturbances whatsoever. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The Admin took my details and with 15 minutes, I was in the test room. There were not many people there, with seats only for 10 participants.

The participants had the pleasure of using headphones too. The only problem with the center was that the restroom was located a bit far from the test room, a distance of approximately 15-20 steps, this consumed considerable time in traversing. The restroom needed a separate key for it to be opened and used. This also took some time, when you want to return and take up next session.

Rest was better than I expected. There was no noise there too.
