Received a message to respond here. With so many options, it can get confusing. Perhaps we can add some insight:
Yes, nobody does RC the way we do.
For a sample: http://www.gmatpill.com/practicequestio ... tions.html
Yes, our SC is quite strong. The focus is on thought-process

As an example of the "that vs which" dilemma, we do go into detail about how THAT restricts the scope of what you are talking about and WHICH is used to generally describe something.
Please make sure you skip towards the middle of the video (part 2 of 3) here that shows the diagram:http://www.gmatpill.com/presentations/f ... lesson.mp4
So there is a legitimate explanation for understanding THAT vs WHICH here. It's not just "by looking"..
In Part 1 of the video - we answer it in real-time, as if we are sitting in front of the exam computer and you are looking over our shoulder. But in Part 2 and Part 3, we explain what was going on in our head earlier in Part 1.
Many students are amazed by our response time. Occasionally, there may be issues - as documented here: gmatpill-issue-resolved-3-hours-truly-worldclass-service-157251.html#p1253091
- still we resolved the issue in < 3 hours.

Video explanations to these Practice Pill Platform questions + access to the 6-pill video course are available to paid members only.
What paid members get
But knowing the fact that the frameworks are discussed openly
--Sure, but only a few portions of 1 framework have been shown to the public. The remaining parts of that 1 framework as well as the other 9 frameworks are inside the course only.

We offer a 50 pt guarantee. You will need to reach your minimum score guarantee on the GMAT Pill
Practice Test before walking into the exam. In other words, if you haven't even scored a 700 in practice, you can't expect to score a 700 on the real thing. We believe this is quite reasonable.
Here's a sample screenshot of our video
We use a visual approach in our explanations.

Where Our Real Value Is
We believe our real value is in our speed-learning techniques and thought process--we can only communicate that through our video explanations.
Sure, we have 1,000+ questions - but our focus is on explaining each of those really well ---and we can only do that through video. Text can only do so much. Video shows where you need to focus and also demonstrates timing.
"But [they] have 5,000 questions.."
--Honestly, do you think it makes a difference for your actual studies? Chances are, you'll be super tired after 1,000 questions. If you actually do 5,000 questions, you'll get burned out by test day and probably freeze up when the actual thing counts. That's not where you want to be.
This is a logical fallacy: "If I do 5,000 questions, my score will necessarily be higher than if I do 1,000 questions"---wrong
! This is a critical reasoning flaw!
The assumption is that more questions = high performance. This is not true. High performance is all about thought process.
Sure, doing a lot of questions can be helpful - but only to a certain point. And when it comes to thought process, LESS = MORE. Efficiency is important.
Having said that, we are continuously adding new questions - but honestly, that alone is not going to improve your score.
No other prep company has helped a non-native get off the waitlist AND score a $50,000 MBA scholarship due to a GMAT increase from 690 to 760.
No other prep company has helped a native English speaker score 770, AWA 6/6, IR 8/8 AND a full scholarship to LBS.
