I had given my GMAT more than a year ago (710- V34, Q50) and at that point of time I used to absolutely dread RCs. I found them really mundane and could never get myself to focus. While my quant was always strong, and CR and SC were average, RCs just didn't come to me naturally. And no, this does not mean that I'm weak at English in general. Infact, I'm among the most annoying grammar nazis that you may across. But each time I would come across an RC in the middle of my mocks, I would feel low and lose time and thereby end up rushing through my SC and CR questions as well.

Then, my friend introduced me to e-GMAT and I cannot thank him enough for having done that. After a year long break, I felt the need to go over SC and CR concepts as well and the videos provided by e-GMAT made them a whole lot of fun. I would stay up till late night, watching the videos, almost like I'd be watching a sitcom. They were light and helped me brush up my concepts very well. I had read someone's review about making handwritten notes while watching videos and then transferring those onto Evernote at the end of each day as that would not only help you revise, but also create a handy notebook for you to skim through while you're on the move. This tip helped me a lot and I would really recommend it to you all as well. I made my notes nice and colourful and added screenshots and links to them. Going over them later seemed fun because of all the colours I had added. (let me know if you want me to share them with you!)

The RC videos were really helpful as well. e-GMAT provides you a number of key strategies that you must keep in mind while reading through RCs. The one strategy that worked wonders for me was "to get immersed". I would literally tell myself at the beginning of each passage that "Oh! this sounds interesting, lets read what happens next!" I even used the note making approach during RCs quite regularly and was thereby able to get ALL my main point and structure questions right. These strategies seem very time consuming in the beginning, but within no time, you start to internalise them.

The other thing that I absolutely loved about the VLP was the scholaranium. Since I knew that RC was my weak point, I had decided to do atleast 4 passages every day, along with 20 SCs and 20 CRs. I used to create a lot of RC Ability quizzes and while I started with a 43% accuracy (with no time left to answer the last one), by the end I had 96% accuracy which was a great achievement for me. Infact, the day before my GMAT, when I sat down to give my RC ability test, I felt I was able to breeze through it easily. I wasn't spending to much time reading and even the answers were coming to me naturally.
When I submitted the test, I saw my score report in which I had just one (Hard) question wrong out of a total of 4 RC passages. This was my biggest confidence booster and I was sure that my GMAT would go well this time, which it did!

Infact, I finished by Quant section 18 minutes in advance and my Verbal section 15 minutes in advance and landed up with a V41, Q50 and a total of 750. I was literally shivering while answering my last few Verbal questions because the difficulty level had gone up which also meant my score was going up.

I wouldn't say that a V41 is a kickass score, but for someone like me who dreaded RCs to such a large extent, it was definitely an accomplishment, specially since I was now able to answer the questions so much faster.

Thank you e-GMAT once again and thanks to all those who read my review till the very end. I hope I was able to motivate a few of you out there like me, who may have totally given up on RC.

All the best to you all !!

eGMAT Verbal Live Prep was the reason why I was able to show 100 point increase over the course of my 3 attempts, going from V30 to V44 in 10 months. I did start my verbal live prep program on recommendations online and after trying it out for free, I was sure that this is a good investment. I gave my GMAT prep 1st CAT and scored very low in verbal and I could see that I needed help with verbal. As soon as I had enrolled in eGMAT Verbal Live Prep (VLP), I was provided with a very detailed and systematic study plan that I should follow. This plan kept me in check all throughout and made sure that the proper foundations were laid before advanced concepts were introduced. I have no qualms in accepting the fact that I could have obtained a good score in my 1st attempt itself had I not deviated from the methods taught by eGMAT. The tutors were very helpful be it moderating strategy sessions, providing lectures via pre recorded videos or answering to the questions posted on online forums and their own question forums. The articles covering various concepts in SC, CR and RC were very well written and have been appreciated by many online forum goers.
I started with SC and I was amazed to see how seemingly straightforward concepts such as subject verb agreement, modifier and parallelism could be used to make difficult questions. Herein lies eGMAT’s greatest strength: to break down seemingly impossible to understand SC prompts into smaller segments and then analyze in detail each component of the sentence. The videos started with simple concepts and then finally went onto more advanced concepts such as modifiers and parallelism. As a non-native English speaker with exposure to English from a very early age, I was confident with my grammar rules but I was proven wrong by the diagnostic GMATPREP CAT. eGMAT showed that there is a method and logic behind every step even in SC and that if you are systematic with your approach , you can tackle toughest of SC questions with absolute ease. The insistence on understanding the meaning of SC prompts removed my fear of completely underlined sentences and led me to high timed accuracy in OG,GPREP qbank and exam pack 1. I realized the importance of following a set method to tackle a particular question type only after my 1st attempt, until when I used to employ brute force methods. eGMAT showed me that there was elegance in the ways to tackle the different questions types and subtypes. The videos were very clear, I was able to play them on any media be it windows or iOS without any issues, pre and post assessment quizzes were of particular help in understanding what needs to be focused on. One of the most useful things in their videos was the ability to see the “summary” slide that will summarize the contents of the preceding video.
Once I got a grasp of SC, I moved onto CR, following their detailed schedule and again saw that there was set method to every CR question type. The focus on understanding the conclusion, how premises relate to the conclusion, “PRETHINKING”, “NEGATION TECHNIQUE” etc techniques were hugely helpful. The videos started with the topic at hand, followed by some very thoughtfully crafted question to cement what was covered in the videos. Prethinking enabled me to understand the scope of the question, the relationships between elements in the CR prompt and understand why the incorrect answer choices were incorrect. In GMAT, every incorrect question is wrong for a particular/solid reason. If you are eliminating a choice without that reason, you will end up choosing incorrect options. eGMAT CR provided the tools to understand why is an option incorrect, be it out of scope, similarly worded but incorrect option, partially correct options, opposite choice etc. Unless you understand how GMAT can give you incorrect options based on above reasons, you will not be confident in choosing an answer (my situation in the 1st attempt). Again, I only realized the importance of applying a set method just before my 2nd attempt. eGMAT’s focus on breaking down any argument into its respective elements, understanding the linkages and prethinking provided you 70% of the total work required for answering a question correctly. Rest 30% would come from POE of options provided. I was able to increase my accuracy in OG CR questions from 55% to 90%+ with eGMAT’s CR module.
The 3rd step was finishing the RC module which again taught a couple of useful tactics to be an active reader and to be involved with the passage. eGMAT RC also provided the tools to understand why is an option incorrect, be it out of scope, similarly worded but incorrect option, partially correct options, opposite choice etc. Once you became fully engrossed with the passage (by following eGMAT’s advice), finding the correct answer via POE became very straightforward.
Finally, VLP also included IR (for free) which is a nice gesture on eGMAT’s part. The IR module videos dealt with all the different question types and provided good practice with end of the video practices.
I don’t think this review will be complete without talking about this new tool that eGMAT has come out with and is included in eGMAT VLP (as of writing this review). It is called scholaranium and is an absolute must to complement verbal practice from OG and GMATPREP. Scholaranium comes with an “ability” evaluation technique that tells where exactly do you stand (percentile wise) for a particular section (SC or CR or RC) or verbal (all sections combined). This was a very useful tool for me as I was able to do targeted practice for areas I was faltering on. I used to use scholaranium to hone my skills via sectional quizzes and even sub sectional targeted practice. The collection of 600+ questions is an amazingly crafted collection consisting of questions from 3 difficulty levels. The explanations are very detailed and are provided for all the questions and you can even post your doubts and one of the eGMAT experts will respond to your doubts soon enough.
The live sessions were very useful starting from the strategy sessions with Rajat to content based SC/CR and RC sessions. These live sessions would be repeated every month, so if you missed out 1 recording, you could go back and review it under your account page. The questions cited, reviewed and discussed during these sessions were very demanding and thought provoking. These sessions complement very well the course content presented via SC, CR and RC modules.
As for pricing is concerned, I believe eGMAT is the best online course available that is total worth the money you spent. It is cheaper than the other course providers but is definitely not lacking in any quality of content. The quantity of questions should be close to 2500 and all are high quality questions. Additionally as VLP has a validity of 6 months, I had to renew it twice but was provided a discounted price by eGMAT and really appreciate this.
To summarize, eGMAT VLP is a definite buy for non native English speakers as they understand the needs of these non native speakers and have the course tailored for them.

Although, I did select Payal under the "Instructor Name" but this shout out goes out to the entire eGMAT team. Keep up the great work you guys are doing.

I've been using the e-gmat Verbal Online course for the past three months, and hands down I think their SC and CR course along with the scholaranium are the most effective package available for non-native English speakers.

Just some stats that I hope will help some of the members here figure out if this is the right course for them -

I'm a two-time GMAT test taker (650, 660 with similar Q and V scores) and my problem was that I couldn't figure out a strategy to approach Verbal that would give me consistency in my scores. While I was decently good in RC, SC and CR often gave me trouble. Sometimes I'd be able to attempt 700+ level questions and other days not even a sub-600 level. Suffice to say, I lacked conceptual understanding and didn't have any approach to solving diff types of questions.

I'm more or less done with e-gmat SC and CR course, and the improvement is obvious. I'm consistently hitting >80% mark in SC and ~75% in CR, and this is when there are a few SC topics that I still need to cover.

Where the course helped me cement some of my dilly-dally concepts, scholaranium has helped me with a) time management (totally different ball game when attempting questions in adaptive setting) and b) build an approach to attempting each type of question.

I have a test scheduled for 9th of Jan and I'm hoping to bump my score by another 10% and reach an 80-90% accuracy in all 3 sections of verbal. Fingers crossed and best of luck to all those who're busy slogging during this festive time.

I started my journey one year ago. My background in engineering allowed me to set an excellent pace to achieve a high score in the quant part, in which I finished with Q51. Nevertheless, I had a lot of difficulties with the verbal section, and my score for the first time was well below my quant score. I managed to achieve a V27 for the first time I took the gmat. After reading many of the reviews in gmat club, it seemed to me that e-gmat was an excellent course for non-native speakers and I decided to proceed with the subscription of Verbal Live Prep. In the first few weeks, I started by the SC part. The detailed explanations and videos about each of the main issues in SC/RC/CR made my score to improve quickly. Another great tool is the Scholaranium. It was determinant to spot my weaknesses very quickly and provided me a detailed study plan to address each of the points I need to correct. Scholaranium has this fantastic tool to measure ability (time management) and accuracy ( correctness) of your performance. It allowed gauging the level of performance that I needed to improve my score. As a result, my score increased by 7 points, and I ended up with 710 (Q51, V34), a competitive score. I think e-gmat is the best course for non-native speakers. I recommended it to other friends as well, and their feedbacks were terrific too. Indeed, your score will bust with E-gmat.

E-GMAT is the best course I have encountered. Verbal online course is better than the traditional in class delivery.

The sentence correction is best explained in this course. I was very week in the SC when I initially attempted GMAT. With the help of course I improved from 25 points to 35 points for now.
The strategy thought in master sentence structure course breaking down the complicated sentence into clause is very helpful to answer the verbal questions.

Pre thinking in critical reasoning is also very helpful. This eliminates so much confusion that might occur if we directly dwelve into the answer choice.

Reading comprehension is also well understood with the help of breaking down the sentence into clause and reading it by keeping subject and verb in mind. This helps to easily understand the point in complicated passages.

Could not ask anything better than e-GMAT for Verbal. The video lessons are detailed, thorough with expert explanations and practice problems.

The good thing I like about this course is that, it provides basics to advanced concepts, provides sample problems and provides details on which Q number to solve from OG.

Being an Indian male with IT background, I have the pressure to crack GMAT, with the 3 step concept in SC, pre thinking in CR and RC modules e-GMAT has been no brainer choie for non native english speaker like me.

I would recommend anyone to go with this course for a good GMAT score.

Before I took the e-GMAT's verbal course I heard about how good it is but wasn't sure to put in more money for the prep material as I had already purchased Magoosh's prep course. After my first attempt I scored a mere 600/800 and was really disappointed. That's when I decided to purchase e-GMAT's verbal online course. It's truly the best verbal course out there. It justifies all the reviews placed here on the website that it's the best. I score 33 on verbal after my preparation from a 25, an 8 points improvement. I can't thank you e-gmat enough for helping me out. Their sentence correction techniques are really the best. It doesn't require you to learn, it requires you to understand the basics and a sentence correction question then looks like as if you're solving a basic math question. Yes, it makes it that easy. Their CR and RC courses are equally good. Although I had problems with understanding the arguments sometimes even after the course completion but my accuracy rate was improved a lot! I strongly recommend their verbal course.

E-GMAT Verbal Online is the best online course especially for people who cannot attend live classes & sessions. The course material is excellent & leave no stone unturned in GMAT Verbal Preparation. The entire course is so well planned and strategic. The 3-step process in SC is an eye-opener. After understanding the meaning of the sentence & applying the steps in the right way I was able to reduce my "takt time" or turnaround time for every SC question and , I could get most of the even hardest questions right. its a very comprehensive course covering all the concepts to the depth. CR course with emphasis on logical structure, pre-thinking, ABC test, negation test, variance test is very strategic & helped me to counter assumptions & most difficult CR passages with ease & save a lot of time too. Finally, I could get a hang on RC as well with the systematic reading strategies in the RC course. RC was the most difficult section for me & now I can boldly face it with active reading. I had also enrolled for two other major GMAT Prep courses as well & attended some free sessions from other courses too & from my experience E-GMAT Verbal courses are the best I can suggest for anybody looking for a breakthrough in GMAT Verbal.

Thanks to E-gmat that I have been able to improve my score from V32-V40. E-gmat gave me a sense of realisation and made sure that I knew the answer of WHY to evry concept. The presentations make sure that you capture and visualise and the SC Course helps gain insights. For a non-native speaker I shall surely recommend EGmat for not just SC but also RC and CR. E-Gmat is very interactive and the answers to queries posted are swift. Scholarnium also enables you to judge and improve accordingly.
3 step CR process and Pre-thinking did make me sharpen my CR and RC skills.

E-gmat verbal was excellent! The course helped me break down complex sentence structures, critical thinking questions, and RC passages I took for granted. Mastering the basic building blocks helped me navigate tricky GMAT verbal questions.

SC
Using English in a daily/ professional setting is not enough. The GMAT tests grammar to the tiniest detail and e-gmat helps you recognise these tricky traps. My SC improvement was among the question types that raised my score.

CR
E-gmat helped me identify question patterns among CR questions, making this section a lot more manageable.

RC
E-gmat was helpful for the basics you can't ignore when evaluating the key messages /inferences in the passage.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this course. I took the online course and it was well worth it! Kudos!! I wish I took this course earlier and had more time to practice with it :)
