690 Q48 V36
I am a non-native English speaker who has never come across any kind of verbal questions throughout my life in any of my examinations. I started my prep very randomly. I was in a misconception that the more we keep solving the better we get. It may also be due to the fact that I didn't respect the exam enough. I gave my first GMAT attempt about 6 months ago. I got a 650 (V29 Q48). This was devastating but a good learning experience. The biggest learning for me was that I needed structure to my learning. I have to learn rules and practise them to own them.
I decided to get some guidance. I have been searching many tutoring classes, online material, books etc. but everything seemed to be very overwhelming. Then my friend suggested Egmat. I took the free trial and started doing sentence correction. I was hooked from the word go. The systematic approach to video lessons, application exercise and practice files gave me the much need structure. It is not overwhelming anymore since it took me through the habit learning and application. The OG questions turned out to be the icing on the cake.
I bought the verbal online pack. On buying this I got access to the Quant scholaranium and IR videos. I thought it was pretty generous. I started my prep and within weeks I could see a huge development in my scores. My accuracy in SC and CR have gone up from around 40% to 81%. RCs were a huge help as well. The scholaranium questions helped me get better and faster. By solving the Quant Scholaranium I was getting better in Quant as well.
I gave my next GMAT attempt about a month and a half later. I thought it was pretty hasty but I felt pretty good about it. Though I just got a 700 (V39 Q48); it was more to do with my health condition at that moment. I wrote my exam with suffering from viral fever, sour throat and severe running nose. I owe my improvement in verbal completely to Egmat. My score improved from V29 to V38 in a span of 1 1/2 months. I am very confident that in my next attempt I can secure a very good score. I keep suggesting my friends and colleagues about Egmat. I go to an extent of advising them to just blindly follow Egmat and no other material
Thanks a lot, Egmat for helping me gain confidence and build the capability to ace in my GMAT and thanks to all those who read my review until the very end. I hope I was able to help you gain a perspective on Egmat prep.
