Hi Guys,

I gave my GMAT on July 14 and scored 730 (q49 v41).
I improved from 660 (q48 v33) that I got in 2015, when I had no clue on how to crack the verbal section. I used to attempt Verbal using how it sounds and more often than not I used to get it wrong. On the quants side, I had scored 48 and knew that I can improve it with more practice.

In my pursuit to crack verbal, I discovered eGmat about a year ago and realized that there is a method to crack verbal. I took the verbal online prep to begin with but after attending a few live prep free sessions, I upgraded to live prep course. I was a major procastinator as I never got myself to sincerely prepare for the exam till Feb-Mar 2017.

I finally took up eGmat seriously in April 2017 and worked on it during the weekends. The best part about the course was that I could immediately access the live sessions to fast forward the sections as I was running short of time. I went through the entire course content in about two months spending about 7-10 hours per week largely during weekends.

I know people say that you should work with just one prep company to save conflicting approaches but I would advise against this single prep company approach. I actually used resources from three different sources and took GMAT Prep mock test to ensure that I am on track.

To put some context, I am an Indian Finance Professional with technical undergrad degrees and work 60 hour weeks in the Investment Management industry. I am listing out the resources that helped me achieve 730:

Verbal:
1. Foundation was built on solid eGmat course material
2. SC and CR was further improved using separate set of books that I got from a friend who had cracked 770!
3. Practiced only the medium difficulty and high difficulty questions from Scholaranium
4. RC practiced from Aristotle RC 99 (only medium difficulty passages)

Quant:
5. I did the basics from eGmat and practiced a little bit from the OG book
6. Data Sufficiency book of Veritas Prep - Most amazing resource that I have ever come across that explains strategies in the most beautiful manner - MUST STUDY FOR ANYONE WHO IS STRUGGLING WITH DS!
7. GMAT club tests for improving PS and DS skills by practicing only medium and high difficulty questions

Few take-aways for approaching the exam if anybody has significant time for preparation:

1. Build a strong foundation of Conceptual knowledge - I would suggest eGmat for verbal and to a certain extent for quants too but supplemented with Bunuel posts

2. Evaluate yourself using the 800 score tests (free with eGmat) to check the difficulty level and chapters where you are failing to answer correctly

3. Do focussed practice of the weak areas while simultaneously keeping in touch with the strong areas

4. Ensure that you study daily atleast in the last three weeks to the exam - I used to wake up at 6am and put in about three hours of study in the day split as below:
> (RC) An hour before leaving for office,
> (CR) About half hour while traveling,
> (Quants) Another hour post office work,
> (CR) Half hour while traveling back home,
> (SC) About an hour before calling it a day.
If you notice, I used to ensure that I go through all the subjects in a day, it helps to make your brain agile to tackle all the subjects in the actual exam. Please note that all this was happening while I had a demanding 12 hour job so you need to be kind of driven to take out time for studies.

5. Use ONLY GMAT Prep mock test in the last three weeks for evaluation of progress near the exam date. I got disastrous results when I took mocks of prep companies during my preparation even though I was confident of cracking 40 in verbal. The progress through the final month provided below:

Veritas - 18 Jun - 660 (q46 v35)
800Score - 25 Jun - 700 (q47 v38)
800Score - 26 Jun - 650 (q48 v31)

> Then purchased two exam packs of official GMAT Prep
GMAT Prep Exam Pack 1 - 1 Jul - 750 (q50 v41)
Veritas - 2 Jul - 650 (q45 V34)

> Bought Manhattan tests just to figure out if any test prep co gives any worthwhile comparison
Manhattan - 8 Jul - 650 (q42 v37)
GMAT Prep Exam Pack 2 - 9 Jul - 710 (q49 v36)

Actual GMAT - 14 Jul - 730 (q49 v41)
Coincidentally average of the two GMAT Prep mock test scores!

If you notice, all the mock tests by test prep companies gave a severely deflated result largely due to significant time management issues, which was not the case with any of the GMAT Prep mock tests.

Anyways, I used to give mock tests during weekends and study during the week according to the outcome and focus on improving my skills of solving difficult questions. I have to say that Scholaranium helped me a lot in improving my SC and CR to achieve an accuracy that I had not expected out of myself.

I also wish to thank eGmat for providing me access to GMAT club tests and question bank, which helped me improve my quants.

I would have preferred to study for a week or so because I knew I lacked dedicated practice but I had to meet the minimum hygiene levels and move onto applications.
Result - GMAT score of 730.

I hope some of you find this useful to plan your studies. Please pm me if you have any questions and I will try to address them as soon as possible (currently completely tied up with applications).

Best,
Aditya

Like all non native test takers verbal was the more difficult aspect for me and within verbal sentence correction (SC) particularly. There are many concepts which were either not taught at school level or was difficult for me to recall. Topics like parallelism, Idioms and Modifiers was were either completely new or were challenging for me and this were E-GMAT excels with things like pre assessment quiz and post assessment quiz it really makes easy for you to understand where you stand. The topics are very well explained with very good and intuitive examples along with graphical examples in lot of cases. Along with this scholaranium (test taking platform) helps you assess how you do at various difficulty levels. All along I would like to say it is certainly very well designed and will certainly help improve improve your verbal a lot.

i have been practising for the last few month, tried materials from various sources, veritas prep and MGMAT. i found MGMAT pretty helpful when it came to SC but i thought eGmat did a better job breaking down each sentence and explaining what role each word plays in that. i would definitely say it has helped me not only understand SC better but also helped solve the problems quicker.

overall my GMAT score wasn't great (680, Q47, V36), it was the math section that dissapointed me. i was actually happy with my verbal score, it was the same as the best score i had on the practice exams. hopefully with better preparation i can crack the 700 ceiling

the one thing i regret not doing is completing each section of SC in eGMAT, i was running short on time. this time i have 3 weeks to prepare and hopefully i can do a better job

It has a very comprehensive approach to understanding the rules required to ace verbal. I would recommend this to anyone who is aiming for a 700 plus and is week in verbal section. The sentence correction section is extremely detailed and consists of all the concepts that are required to excel in verbal. The examples and the narration of the concepts throughout the course help to remain focused on the content. The course has helped to improve by at least 7 points in verbal. My first mock score was V31, Q50, while I ended up with V38, Q50 - 730 in my GMAT.

I couldn't have achieved this feat without the help of E-GMAT's Verbal Live Prep for sure. The course is so well defined that all you need is to give just an hour a day at minimum and a complete revision of the week's study on the weekend. I was not new to online courses when I subscribed to E-GMAT. I had already subscribed to Magoosh but I think Magoosh's Qaunt course is way better than their Verbal Course. I would suggest everyone to dig Manhattan Sentence Correction guide before delving into E-GMAT's Verbal Live prep. Although Manhattan's SC guide is an ocean of grammar rules and sentence structure but it will definitely create a strong base and then leave it to Verbal Live Prep for the rest.
The live sessions delivered by Krishna cemented the foundations laid in the interactive modules. I will highly recommend the E-GMAT Verbal live prep for non-native speakers. I improved 15 points in a matter of two months.

Thank you

Shubham

The first time I attempted GMAT I wrote it without any coaching. I went the classic clichéd way :
1. Bought an OG
2. Bought Manhattan GMAT SC,CR and RC
3. Slogged problems on GMAT ( Buenel and BB practice sets)
4. Wrote free Mocks
End result : a disastrous first attempt.
The absolute shocker was my verbal score. And the first thing that came to my mind was that I had to improve in verbal so after reading a lot of reviews on GMAT Club and attending the first free webinar for SC from egmat I decided to give it a try and enrolled for the GMAT Online course. The best part about this course is the organized step by step approach to explain things. Heads up, the videos require a lot of time but they were totally worth it as it helped me understand the every detail also a step wise approach to solve the questions. I liked the videos for both RC and CR. By the end of the course I was very confident in attempting the questions.
While enough is already said about the course content, I believe the magic flavor is the scholarnaium. Scholaranaium is like a war practice zone where you can sharpen your saw. The best part about scholaranaium is that it acts like couture, you can tailor make the quiz according to your flexibility, this gives you an option to hone your skills at your own pace. We all know that reviewing and analyzing is the most crucial part of any quiz , and this is where scholaranaium helps you the most. It gives you the most awesome explanation by following E-Gmat’s three step process.

All I can say is Do give E-Gmat a shot, you wont regret it.

Hailing with an engineering background from India, I never had any problem with my quants section and I always managed to score a 49 in my quants. However, the verbal section was always a nightmare for me. I was keen on studying on my own by using MGMAT's and Kaplan's course books. A year and a half of my preparation had passed by and I made a good progress(or thats what I thought then) of reaching V 31 from a mere V 20. But somehow I was never confident about my verbal and I could not, in my dreams, think that I could get above V 35.

I initially ignored all the promotional content of e-gmat that said "Ace SC/CR/RC in 10 days". After a year and a half of self study I realised I needed help and I just happened to click on their promotional ad. And BOY was I right !! I went through their free modules and realised that I had missed the entire basics and methodology. Without hesitating even for a sec, I went ahead and bought their verbal online package. I started out with the SC modules and trust me, I did ace SC in LESS THAN 10 days. My number of mistakes went down to less than 3 mistakes per exam. CR and RC needed more patience and practice, but it did bring out a massive improvement. I eventually started to score V 40 any mocks and landed up with a V 37 in my main exam and score the coveted 700+ on my GMAT.

I would truly recommend e-GMAT's verbal course to anyone who is a non-native speaker and it is, without a doubt, the BEST verbal prep and no other prep can even come close to the level of understanding and emphasis on using the methodology that e-GMAT provides. Not to forget their excellent support team, that always extended their help when needed.

KUDOS to everyone at e-GMAT !!

Quant by eGMAT is the most methodological quant course available on the market. They rightfully give a score improvement guarantee for the course. I increased my actual GMAT score from Q42 to Q46 ie by 6 point when they only give a guarantee of 4 points. And that too when i had only done the theory part of their course and did not take even a single mock.

It made the most difficult of concepts easy to understand and solve question systematically and with ease of a process. No tricks. No shortcuts.

Payal Tandon & Rajat Tandon are the most helpful teachers you will come across on the internet.

Hello everyone. Before going into the course feedback, I'll like to tell about my background. I am an engineer with a work experience of 2 years. I had appeared for my first GMAT attempt in early 2016 and scored 660 on it. I realised just after the exam that I needed to clear my basic concepts before having a try again on the GMAT. I researched a lot about the best verbal courses provided by different institutions. After a lot of research and positive feedbacks on the e-GMAT course, I decided to go with the Verbal online course.
Coming to the course, I really didn't expect it to be so good! We have different sections for RC, CR and SC. In each section you have the topics broken down and video lectures for each of the topic. They will explain all the intricacies in detail. On top of that, they have tests at the end of each topic you just learned. This was the icing on the cake as you could test your hand on the topic just learned. On top of all this, you have the verbal scholaranium which is essentially a question bank. You can practice from the scholaranium in any section you want or you can take a verbal ability test, similar to the actual GMAT test, which contains questions from all the sections and is a 75 minutes test.
The course significantly improved my basics in each of the sections. It told all the details that you should keep in mind while answering any question. It has a proper flow that you can follow to arrive at the correct answer choice.
I would highly recommend this course to the people who are thinking about taking up online verbal courses. It's a no-brainer to go with e-GMAT's Verbal online course.
Happy studying and all the best folks!

Master SC to Ace Verbal

One of the key things that I would recommend to anyone who is planning to take GMAT is that don't go looking for additional practice material beyond e-GMAT, which offers a thorough and comprehensive course that covers all the fundamentals required to ace the test. Moreover, the way the tutors help you dissect even the most difficult questions helps you a great deal.
From my experience while preparing for GMAT, I feel that for anyone who is aiming for a 99 percentile in Verbal, SC is going to be the key for moving past this hurdle. Master the concepts quickly and then focus on the application. It’s not simply about learning the concepts, but rather applying those concepts effectively in a test environment. e-GMAT’s approach to SC can help you master this strategy.

SC: Covers all the fundamental rules that are needed to do well in SC. I felt that the SC videos were very engaging and interactive as they explained the grammatical concepts in plain "English". One strategy that stands out is e-GMAT's strong emphasis on meaning. It may sound trivial but it is one of the most helpful approaches for SC, especially when you are dealing with 750 level questions. In most difficult SC questions, you may often have two grammatically correct options, and in such cases if you blindly follow the grammar rules you may end up picking the wrong answer. I couldn’t emphasize enough on the usefulness of the meaning based approach that e-GMAT encourages.
I also benefited a great deal from Scholaranium, especially from the detailed explanations. Because of these explanations, each question can effectively serve as 5 questions (Identify potential errors in each of the options). I don’t recommend that anyone do this during the exam, but while practicing I felt that it helped me excel in SC.

CR: CR course is more about following a particular approach. Unlike SC, there aren't many concepts / rules to learn. e-GMAT helps you master a process that enables you to avoid falling in common mistake traps.

RC: Mastering reading strategies is a must. And e-GMAT's course puts strong emphasis on that.

I can confidently say that e-GMAT can give the means to achieve your target score in an efficient manner. Its coursework will give you enough practice material, save you time as you won't need to run to "N" number of sources for practicing good quality questions, and thereby giving you the opportunity to do the best you can on GMAT.
