I just had an exam last two weeks and got 49 for quantitative and 20 for verbal (580).

I want get around 700+.

I read a lot of course reviews but cannot decide which course i should take.

I have two courses in my mind now: The Economist and E-Gmat.

Could someone help me to decide?

Thank you in advance

For a 700, you'll need at least a 34-35 in verbal. Less if you can pull that quant score up a bit.

Try taking a trial of each of the courses you're considering and check how comfortable you are with the approach followed. If you're unable to take a call, just choose any one (or opt for self prep). The reason I'm saying this is that reviews are helpful only up to a point, and any attempts to help you decide between the two courses you've mentioned are also likely to be, in a way, reviews (or marketing).

Hi jayfin,

Before you invest in any new study materials, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?
4) Was the 580 you referred to a practice CAT or the Official GMAT?

Goals:
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

You can check out the reviews here

Egmat is better suited for non natives and is very good for Sentence Correction.
They host lot of webinars and free trials. You can try that before enrolling for any course.

Hi jayfin,

There are some great GMAT prep companies that can help you with your preparation.

In order to make an informed decision I would highly encourage you to go to their websites and try on their free trial and decide for yourself which one do you like better. You try out free access to EmpowerGMAT, Magoosh and Optimus Prep as they have great reviews on GMATCLUB.

Also for verbal, Your choice of e-gmat is great. E-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live course are both amazing courses especially designed for non-natives. They offer almost 25% of their courses for free so you can try out their free trial to decide which one you want to go for. Plus the e-gmat Scholaranium which is included in both the courses is one of the best verbal practice tools in the market. You can easily track your progress in that you can identify your strengths and analyze and improve on your weak areas.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practise tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

I would also encourage you to purchase the latest version of OG and the verbal review for some great additional practice. Here is a link that will help you with your decision.

Hope this helps. All the best.

Hi
In addition to the above two courses, I would also suggest to take free trial for EmpowerGmat.
All the three have very good reviews and it is preferable to take free trial first before choosing any course.
Additionally, if you have time you can also opt for self study, as going by your score you have a good Quant score and need improvement only in Verbal. Alternatively, choose a Verbal course only.
Hope it helps.
