Long time lurker on the GMAT Club, but posting on the verbal forum for the first time as I really have my back against the wall and need to figure out how to approach/ study for verbal. I have my GMAT scheduled for November 3rd and I started studying in the middle of July. I started with Quant and went through the MGMAT quant guide which I thought was pretty good. Also as an engineer and based on my first CAT, I consider quant to be my strength.

Now, I'm off to verbal and as the free GMAT CAT suggested, I really need help with verbal (which I already knew). However, I have no idea what resources to use to study for verbal. As a non-native (I was born and raised outside of the US and moved here when I was 16), E-Gmat verbal's name seems to come up quite a lot on GMAT Club. But given the short time I have to prep for Verbal, I wanted to ask the GMAT Club community if E-Gmat is the best resource I should be using. Is there any other verbal course that I should consider besides EGmat Verbal?

I can say from experience that e-GMAT is effective. What is the time-frame you're referring to when you say short time?
The time you need to go through e-gmat depends on how many hours you can put in regularly. I dedicated about 4-5 hrs a day on an average for my GMAT prep for about a month and a half. I was able to go through the SC and CR material in that time besides practice from OG and GMATClub tests.
So it basically depends on how far you are from your target and how fast you think you can absorb the material.

How were you able to put in 4-5 hrs on Weekdays? Currently I have about 75 days before the D-Day. I figured, if I need to set aside 20 days to take practice exams and review them, I've got about 50 days to prep for verbal. Is that enough to go through the verbal (SC,CR,RC) section of E-Gmat? The mock exam that I took few months ago, I scored a mere 26. I'm hoping to land a 36-38 on the real exam.

I didn't do RC so cant say about that. I was able to do SC and CR within a month or so. My workload was less and so I could study from say 8 to 12 or 1 on weekdays. And weekends I could put in 8 hours or so.
Depending on your situation you can decide what time you can dedicate.
