Verbal Prep was great help to improve my score my V34 to V41. The videos and suggested strategies were really helpful! It helped me to improve my score in Verbal. Would suggest follow all the strategies suggested and practice a lot after that. In my first attempt, I only used part e-gmat strategy and part mine in Verbal. It didn’t help. Follow their strategies completely and it really helps. I went through all videos twice before my GMAT and practiced their strategies on all OG questions. Plus, the verbal workshop I attended was also very helpful.
I would highly recommend the course.

As you can understand from the title of my review that my 1st language is not English, I bumped onto e gmat course after doing much of research and getting great reviews from almost everyone.
I would like to suggest everyone egmat SC and Scolorium is highly useful. As a team member they are highly active in support and easily reachable even during the online sessions. Egmat pre thinking approach is highly useful for GMAT not only for cr but also for SC and rc.

There online resources are best source for practice because every question has been selected after considerable discussion moreover the explanations are on lines with the Gmac.

E-gmat offers excellent resources to self-study for the verbal part in GMAT, especially the Sentence Correction section. It really focuses on the important and tricky points that students are often confused and make mistakes. The instructor has an excellent approach to explain grammatical foundation to help students understand and apply the knowledge in answering SC questions. Questions to practice are ok, not too hard, but enough to help students remember grammatical points. Additional practice questions are provided at the end of each module together with Official Guide questions. Scholaranium is ok: some questions are similar but others are more about emphasizing the grammatical points rather than reaching the difficulty level in GMAT exam. I hope to have more practice questions and modules can be made longer. However, I think the SC has covered pretty significant volume of grammar points to review for GMAT.

Great course so far!

My first attempt at GMAT gave me a 600. I was depressed with the course. My verbal course was pathetic. I prepared using Manhattan SC book, but was not satisfied as my confidence was not great.
I was recommended e-gmat by a friend. I started preparing from verbal online prep and verbal live prep. Within no time, i started gaining confidence and better scores. The Scholarium in the verbal section is the best. I am yet to take my GMAT, but i have recently got 690 in mock prep and i feel its mainly coz of e-gmat. Everything is great with e-gmat. However, kindly be informed that they will charge you if you want to extend your course. I have read in this forum that it will be extended for free. However, i was charged. It seems there is an option to disable the course for some duration if you want to take a break from preparation. Do use it. All the best :)

I decided to apply for a Top10 B-School long time ago. I was totally aware that to have at least some chance to be admitted I needed to reach a really great score in the GMAT, a quite difficult exam, as long as I had heard by then. So I decided to buy some study material, from some of the most prestigious publishers in the world. I will not name them here, but they are some of the people who have produced really enriching material in the past.

By that time I was working in the US, a dream I had pursued for the previous two years and hence I wanted to demonstrate my supervisors my commitment with my job and with my company. Therefore, I had no much time left and it was clear that this GMAT thing would take me a while and I would not get my super score overnight. However, I was not aware of how difficult this thing would really be…

I am an engineer, so I supposed that Quantitative wouldn´t be a big deal. So although I studied for it I focused on Verbal. I am a non-native, but I think I have been average good at English all my life, so I felt confident that I would improve quite a lot and would get a high score. So after studying for some months I scheduled my exam within several weeks and, went for it. For whatever reason, I did not do any practice exam in advance (don´t ask me why, probably in my arrogant way of thinking I felt I didn´t need it). I did the exam, feeling fine about it, but I was amazed when the screen said I had just got 570. I was really expecting way higher score than that one, something close to the 700s. That day I realized that GMAT was something to take into account, not just a mere exam like those of college. This is hard stuff.

So I revisited the study material I had, the one from the recognized publisher (I am not using “recognized” ironically, they have really good stuff out there), and did tons of exercises, with not more guide that the one in the books I was using. I studied hard for a year, using each loose hour I had to study (I was travelling a lot for work by that time, I did many of those exercises in planes and hotel rooms), confident that if I put hours and hours on it I would improve my score considerably. That strategy had worked out pretty well all my life, why wouldn´t work with this regards? I was absolutely wrong… I took the exam several more times, but I did not get to the 700s not even close.

I was really upset: I had studied a good amount of hours, gone through my books and repeated the strategies learnt on them. What was going on? No matter how hard I was working on this and how much of my time I was diverting to this, I wasn´t able to surpass a line. I wasn´t being inefficient in my study, I was having hours of study of good quality, but that wasn´t counting. It was like having and upper barrier above me that I was not capable to break. So one Sunday, searching in internet I found GMATClub. I didn´t get into it too much that day (mistake, GMATClub is just amazing, I would like to post another review of them here), but there I was recommended to attend a free webinar by a company I didn´t know about. It was scheduled an hour later and I had nothing better to do that Sunday, so I joined. There was a gent giving a brief explanation about how is GMAT exam organized first, and then describing a feeling that he assured many people experienced when preparing the exam. He was saying that for many people, no matter how hard they study, they were stopped up to a certain level and a certain score. Beyond that level, they weren’t able to pass. By that time, my concentration on the webinar was 1000%, that gent was describing basically what was happening to me! He was saying that there were several reasons for not being able to surpass such barrier, but the most important were not having developed your core skills properly, and probably the way you were absorbing knowledge (in my case, my books from the traditional publishers). He defined that situation of being stuck at one level as “Score Plateau”, which is a very appropriate term, in my opinion. That gent was Rajat Sadana, co-founder of e-GMAT, and he was presenting his e-GMAT Verbal Live Prep course.

I decided to take that course right away and soon I started to realize how misled my study strategy had been. The Verbal Live Prep course changes from top to bottom the way you approach the Verbal section of the GMAT Exam. Rajat, Payal, Krishna and the rest of experts of e-GMAT (whom I am very grateful to) change the way you envision this in both form and content.

Content: because they re-define many of the core concepts that you need to understand previously to master the GMAT: the difference between accuracy and ability, the real definition of an Assumption or how you can truly read a passage with effective Reading Comprehension, for instance; because they provide you with powerful tools to face a question: the Pre-Thinking approach, the Negation Test, the iSWAT choices, the difference between polar opposite and logical opposite, the Variance Analysis, and so many other concepts that help you understand deeply what you are asked; because they have such a good question bank, way better that any other I might have tried, to help you understand the lessons first and master the sections afterwards; because they give you access to practice exams from 800Score and GMATClub, the stepping stones on your way to master the exam, in my opinion.

Form: because they use an online course that is a format significantly more effective than traditional books. Organized intelligently, this course gives you access to related problems, right after a concept is learnt. It is pretty easy to navigate and easier to carry (I do not need to bring my heavy books with me when flying in my work trips). The course does not allow you to keep going if detects that you have not internalized the concepts taught. This gives you the security of not being leaving important stuff behind unwittingly. Besides, each lesson is reinforced with Live Sessions on the weekends, where you not only go over what you have studied, but you also learn some strategic tips to increase your performance when practicing, and can ask all the questions that you have come up with during the week.

I have scheduled my GMAT exams within three weeks from now. My score in my last practice exam, four days ago, was 750. I do not know how well I will perform, but these guys have indeed given me something I lacked before: an enormous confidence on myself and on my knowledge. I will tell you in twenty days…

Good luck to you all.

The egmat verbal course provided me with a great base to start with. My concepts expecially in SC significantly improved. In addition Scholaranium helped in identifying weak areas and improve timing. More importantly, the questions on Scholaranium were relevant to the actual GMAT test unlike those of many other online prep companies. The algorithms used in questions selection is great and just what the student required. This gave me the flexibility of choosing the right kind and number of questions as per requirement.

Would recommend this course as a must have for all those who are serious about getting a good GMAT score.

I had given my GMAT last year in October (610) and at that point of time I used to absolutely dreaded verbal. I found it really mundane and could never get myself to concentrate and solve the questions. While my quant was always strong,

Then, a colleague at work introduced me to e-GMAT. After a six month break, I started again with my prep. I cant thank enough to this portal for I have improved my verbal score incredibly! The videos are so descriptive. They are easy to understand and makes you think about the structure of the sentence you read in the test. this help me 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. I am yet to give my GMAT hoping for the best!

My first attempt at the mock exam of GMAT gave me a 520. It was disheartening. More so because these were not questions that I did not know the answers to. It was only time that was a constraint.
I buckled up and looked at the verbal section which was a little weak comparatively. I required in depth analysis of where I was struggling. I was recommended e-gmat by a friend. I started preparing from the Scholarium on the verbal section. Within no time I started improving. I identified my eak areas and started working on them. In my first actual GMAT attemept I scored a 690 within 2 months of online practice from the e-GMAT scholarium.
Hope this helps!

Hi guys, i am sandeep sharma from India. I have around 14 years of work experience in IT domain. I have domestic as well as international experience. I joined e-gmat on 15- march 2015 . My order no on e-gmat was #14994.I joined verbal online course and as a complementary , i got access of scholaranium free of cost. Before joining e-gmat , i used to have different approach for tackling SC questions. As i could read from internet , most of the guys preparing for gmat were using POE approach. hence I also started using POE approach. Although i was using this approach but there was no methodology or logical approach . With out meaning clarity and structural approach , it was just a blind game with no clarity on how and why we are eliminating. After joining e-gmat , i went through all concepts . majorly, using ed and ing was always a confusing point for me but e-gmat clarified all and now SC questions are a cake walk for me
Prethinking methodology for CR question was a break point for me to handle CR questions. Rethinking has increased my accuracy from 50% to 80%
E-Gmat provided a definitive and structural approach that would work for all types of CR or SC questions. I started scoring from v33 to 38 in all mocks.
Last but not the least ,my favourite scholaranium is the best tool for practice. you can gauge yourself on real performance.
I would recommend this course to all ( specially non-natives) who want to score 700+

I have used e-GMAT for Verbal section. The first impressive thing is the material is very well organized and easy to follow. The concepts are nicely explained with several examples and the at the end if each section they have provided summary. I particularly like following strategies:
1.For Critical Reasoning section to tackle Assumption and Evaluate type questions.
2. For Sentence Correction section, how to split the Independent and Dependent Clauses and various types of connectors for these two clauses. The question bank in Scholaranium is very helpful and resourceful. Overall, I recommend the course material for both native and non native speakers.
