I signed up for the sentence correction and critical reasoning sections. It cost $119 for both. I would recommend this course for a non-native speaker but if you are a native speaker of English then I would not recommend it.

E-GMAT can be useful because after each lesson there are quizzes to complete. The quizzes re-enforces the lessons. I am a native speaker and I thought the course would be useful but after using E-GMAT I purchased Aristotle Grail, which was more useful. I did not use the critical reasoning section because I used Powerscores Critical Reasoning book.

Strengths:

• Covers key areas in sentence correction for the GMAT
• Re-enforces the lesson with quizzes
• Can use at your own pace
• Different levels to complete before moving to next one

Weaknesses:

• Fairly new company
• Found too many errors with the software
• Probably more helpful for non-native speakers (not necessarily a weakness)

I am non-native speaker of english and indeed ,till my higher secondary ,the medium of instruction was Hindi. So, in GMAT world my weakest area was verbal. I prepared with standard study material such as manhattan GMAT sentence correction and power score CR and even taken a local coaching to improve my verbal score. But I had a lot of doubt which remained as doubt.

Then,I attempted GMAT on 25th April 2013 and got 660 ( Q49,V31,AWA 4.0,IR7). After my 1st attempt I realized that to cross 700,I have to get good understanding of the SC followed by CR and RC. In July 2013, I attended a strategy session of e-gmat conducted by Rajat and went through the free trials of e-gmat.Then, I joined Verbal online as was convinced that Verbal online will be suitable to my work schedule and my laziness.

Frankly till 12th November 2013, I did not utilize the course properly and was just going through files of SC,CR and RC intermittently. From 13th November 2013, I started seriously preparing for GMAT as I had decided to give GMAT a final shot ( Now or never). In ten days I went through all the files of SC,CR ,and RC and then I read all the articles of e-gmat on Gmat club. All the concept i revised in my mind several times.

After this, I got opportunity to attend Verbal workshop on 24th November.In the workshop, I performed poorly. In the analysis of the workshop, as told by e-gmat, I noted down the reasons for my falter ( they were five in number) and then made a plan to overcome from all those reasons.I devoted one day for each reason and then gave Gmatclub verbal test, Kaplan online test ( 3 tests) and manhattan online test ( free test) . My scored improved considerably as I scored V 38 Gmatclub verbal test, below 81,83and 95 percentile in Kaplan online test and V44 in Manhattan free online test ( This I gave second time. First time I gave this test in March2013). As less than a day left for my test, I went through AWA and some quants question, but did not prepare for IR. Finally, On 3rd December I gave the GMAT and scored 700 ( Q49,V35,AWA 5.0,IR4.0).

During my 20 days preparation, I realized how good the verbal online course is. Special mention for SC, because I think this is the best course which anybody can take and become comfortable with nuances of SC- sentence structure,meaning and spotting the errors.SC is structured in very easy to understand mode . Moreover, the articles written for SC is superb.In CR, Structure and pre-thinking steps gives a solid understanding of the argument. In RC, solution technique for Inference question was best.But the best part is verbal workshop. I recommend everyone to attend it,because it gives you the points where you have to focus (even you have studied full and getting a good score in mocks).

Finally, Thanks to e-gmat. I recommend Verbal online course to anyone who have problem in verbal, especially in SC and CR and who wants to give the test in very short duration.

Good sc course for non-natives

The Verbal online course is really great. They teach you everything from the basics and help you focus on the fundamentals , which is a key factor in GMAT success. The E-GMAT verbal online course is the best fit for non natives. The most amazing part being that the course is very interactive and conducts several quizzes while teaching each concept to ensure the student has really understood everything right from the basic concepts to the approach clearly.The SC course rightly helps you develop the mindset of giving utmost importance to the logical intended meaning by the author. I would rate e-gmat CR to be average and not that good as their SC course is. I got derailed on my plans for MBA. However I have again restarted my preparation again.

I used the course only for Sentence Correction, though I had purchased the full Verbal Online course for the gmatclub.com mocks, and scholaranium access. I didn't need much preparation for RC so I studied only MGMAT RC Strategy Guide and for CR I referred Powerscore Critical Reasoning Bible. I had heard from a lot of people that these resources are better than E-Gmat and hence I relied on proven tried and tested resources for each section.

Pros -
1. Interactive way of learning.

2. Some difficult portions do become easy thanks to the audio-video mode of learning, especially the if-then constructions, verb tenses, subjunctive, etc. Memorizing becomes easy. It is a scientifically proven fact that one's visual memory is superior to one's auditory memory and their course content clubs them both together. Helps you in retaining the concepts.

3. Huge question pool - scholaranium packs in a large amount of gmat like questions. The analysis in scholaranium also helps one gauge his current ability score. Takt time embedded in scholaranium is also a good tool to analyze timing habits.

4. Neatly organized content, divided properly into sections and strategy sessions and excels detailing schedule are provided. These tools help you stay on track. Though I believe the order of appearance should be modified, it still is a nice that the content is organized section-wise.

5. E-Gmat team has done extensive research for GMAT and they have put in a lot of efforts in analyzing each of the OG questions.

6. A huge number of satisfied customers, some of them, whom I personally know.

7. Comes with Gmatclub,com mocks - these mocks are a great source for quant practice.

Cons -
1. Quality improvements are needed - a lot of sessions have some missing words or extra irrelevant information. For e.g. the article 'learn how that can help demystify' has useless content at the end and for some sessions like these the answers are not provided. This doesn't look good for a test prep company claiming to be the number one in GMAT preparation. Some repetition is there, especially in the articles section.

2. Questions after a particular session don't test concepts from that session only, but they also test concepts from other sessions. For e.g. the subject-verb session, in the beginning, has questions which rely on modifiers and idioms as well. Incorrect answers then demotivate the learner.

3. Some concepts are conveniently omitted, such as an idiom variety I remember in the idioms section. Some incorrect knowledge is imparted, such as "distinguish from" according to E-Gmat is wrong.

4. There is no option to increase the speed of the videos - this takes up a lot of time as the pace of the videos is a little slow and for a fast grasper it would be convenient if the video speed can be increased (optionally of course to say 1.5 times). Even youtube provides this option.

I took the GMAT before and did poorly in both sections. I knew that other materials wouldn't help me the second time around. So I tried e-GMAT and it single-handedly and significantly boosted my score!

I actually studied for sentence correction over the span of 3 days and it drastically changed how I approached the problems. I highly recommend e-gmat for non-native speakers.

For those who needs a quick-fix, I recommend focusing on sentence correction with e-gmat. What's most helpful are the answers to official guide questions where you can quickly refer back and double check how to correctly derives an answer.

As a non-native, I was getting stuck with my verbal score all the time and failing to reach my target GMAT score. That is when I came across the e-GMAT Verbal Online course, a course specifically designed for the non-natives. The USP of the course is that - it is designed by non-natives for non-natives and hence understands the requirements and challenges of non-natives better than any other course. The course is beautifully structured and presented. I would also like to thank the instructers, especially Payal, for their relentless support. With e-GMAT by my side, I was able to increase my verbal score from V28 to V38 and score a 710 in my GMAT.

What I like about e-GMAT course.
1. It builds upon your current knowledge - There are preassessment tests. You'll know, which topics you're weak.
2. Scholorium - It has amazing charts that can pinpoint exactly what your strengths and what your weaknesses are.
3. Emphasis on meaning and pre-thinking - This has helped me big time in improving my Verbal score.
4.IR section - Though I did not spend a lot of time on this section, a couple of videos were enough to get me 6/8

What can be improved?
No personal guide or tutor. Though they have excellent videos prepared, I felt it was not enough. I always needed help with building a schedule, but they do not get involved with that.

Hi,

I have taken the GMAT about a year and half back and scored 630 overall, I think the split between QA and VA was 42 and 36 respectively if I remember correctly.

Life happened, and I got derailed on my plans for MBA. However I have again restarted my preparation. One thing I had to taken care was the fact my VA score was pretty low, and on analysis and my own instinct I knew this was more due to SC and RC than CR.

E gmat course is helping me to understand the SC and RC process, I did not have any formal english grammar education so trusted my ear more while solving SC questions during my last GMAT attempt and while I started my preparation again a month back. RC is more of a pain, as more often while going through the questions after reading the passage, I cannot even understand/remember which portions of the passage i should relook at. I end up reading the passage more than once, sometimes
three time, inevitably getting the answer wrong and losing precious time.

The egmat concept of meaning and pause while reading complicated SC and RC has definitely built up on my confidence. My accuracy has gone after completing about 50% of the course. My test date is on 2/15, so heres to hoping that I will do well.

I recommend egmat verbal course as i feel that most of us juggle a job, family and preparation for GMAT has to be optimized for maximum accuracy within a short time span and multiple commitments.

There were number of issues with the course - it might work for you, but it didn't work for me. I am a non-native Indian engineer and I was struggling in verbal section. After attending the "catchy" web session of Rajat and Payal, I bought Verbal online course. Even after going through all the chapters and quizzes, I was not able to crack SC questions from OG or GMAT Prep. The three step process was just a "process" with no content. What is the use of strategy, if there is no content?? Later, I bought RC course also, but again similar to their "three step SC process", e-GMAT categorized the RC wrong answers too - something like, "out of context"; "out of scope" etc... It didn't help much, as most of the time was getting waste in categorization only... Passage summary also doesn't help much, though e-GMAT asks you to use it a lot... I didn't improve my score - just wasted my precious time and money on it... I asked for the guaranteed refund also, but e-GMAT denied any refund, saying it is applicable only on "live" courses - well read the fine print and terms and conditions well before making a purchase...
