EGMAT Verbal is way ahead of other verbal courses out there. Their videos and concept quizzes always helps you improve. Their Scholaranium platform is very efficient to cement the concepts learnt during concept files. The step by step process brings a sense of calm to otherwise all-over-the-place kind of preparation that sometimes people tend to do. The steps are easy to follow even by people prepping for their first attempt. Their CR is the best followed by RC and then SC. I had previously finished Manhattan Prep SC which is as good as EGMAT, hence did not pay much attention to EGMAT's SC course. Contrary to popular belief their prethinking method helps not only in CR but also in RC and SC.

Basically the verbal section saved my GMAT, their systematic approach is great for non-native speaker like myself. Their detailed approach breaks down verbal to parts like SV, nouns, verbs, connectors. This approach is essential for your success. They also provides tons of practice so you can solidify your approach. Additionally their approach on CR is revolutionary, it not only saves time but also lets you focus on the task. After solidifying your approach, you can then work on your timing and accuracy. They have another systematic approach to let you be critical about your ability and how to improve further. Their responses are swift and professional. Everything is logical and systematic, almost like mathematics. I strongly recommend for non-native speaker like myself.

I enrolled in the verbal course after my first attempt in which I scored 660. I enrolled in the E-gmat verbal online course 3 days after my exam and found the course extremely well developed.I have a background in teaching and I know how much effort goes into making dynamic slides, let alone the videos and E-gmat has done a tremendous job in making the videos interactive with precise content. With the help of the course I scored 700 (V33 to V38) in my second attempt within a month. The E-gmat Verbal course is a must to get a good verbal score.

4.5 for SC content
2.5-3.0 for RC and CR content.
I used the e-GMAT SC module for my GMAT prep. The SC course is good but the software/platform is extremely buggy. I kept logging out and had a lot of time logging back in.
The concepts are easy to understand and the tests in between drill them down. Since the course is not comprehensive, I supplemented it with other materials.
I was not that impressed with the RC and CR courses. I pretty much prepared for that using other materials.
I was good in Quant and hence didn't use their Quant courses.

I started my journey with GMAT in March and took the verbal online course.My starting score was 640, which was obtained when I had appeared for in 2017 without any course. I liked the course- the way it simplified and introduced the concepts in a very lucid manner. Also they have amazing scholaranium tools available for practise, which gives a lot of detailed insights about your weak areas.
I ended up with a score of 690 in September. But my target score was 760 and hence I decided to extend my course and retake the GMAT. But unfortunately I ended with a score of 640 the third time.
These are some of the mistakes that I did while taking the course-
Throughout the course I suffered a lot from inconsistency. Also I did not use the course material in the most appropriate manner. I did not maintain an error log in the initial phase of the preparation. Also I had exhausted the scholaranium questions beforehand itself, hence not leaving many questions left when I started studying the right way by maintaining the error log.
I did like the simplified manner in which e-gmat provided the course material. Also I feel more knowledgeable after the course as I am able to spot grammar mistakes in sentences.
I feel good about that part. But the fact remains that I wasnt able to achieve anywhere close to my target score.

I found the egmat Verbal to be particularly useful for improving my SC skills. The methodical approach taught by Payal is very intuitive and builds upon the basics step by step. The end of each section concept with official GMAT questions is really helpful in bolstering the concepts learned in the previous lessons. The curriculum for CR is also designed in a way that one instinctively thinks of an assumption before answering any CR question. Once you are familiar with this approach, mastering CR becomes much more easier. Furthemore, Payal also helped analyze my ESR and her timely inputs helped me improve my score in a short period of time. My heartfelt thanks to the team for helping out with GMAT preparation. Best Regards.

e-GMAT's approach towards each of the Verbal section is methodical, an approach that suits the kind of learner I'm. For someone such as me, for whom things are not obvious from the start, e-GMAT's detailed lessons and step by step process to solve questions helped me to gain subject insights, and thus to score better. Not only are the questions finely constructed to develop familiarity with various situations that are tested in GMAT, but also adaptive in nature to guide a student to improve by building fundamentals of concepts in a gradual way. e-GMAT made me believe that it's possible to achieve a great score by constantly helping me improve beyond my imagined limits. Therefore, I highly recommend this course.

One of the most popular recommended courses
For the pricing the layout of the content feels very “cheap” and cumbersome to use e.g. cannot play videos at different speeds. On the contrary listening to the content at the normal speed does ensure you do not listen too fast and miss important details
Verbal provides a good foundation for content however much of the terminology used is abbreviated/categorised in their own form and comparing this with other providers terminology can lead to some confusion
EGMAT have their own question banks but style of questions is different to official source. The course is also prepared by non native English speakers and mistakes are noticeable in both the content and questions
Recommendations would be to use verbal for a basis for learning content as it goes into granular detail on the different grammar components. The proprietary question banks allow focus on weaker topic areas however given they are not representative of official questions, even moreso then other providers, I would advise tapering these off prior to practicing official questions ahead of the real exam

Subscribed to egmat verbal course after scoring 31 in verbal in my first attempt. Just used it for 2 months of preparation since many R1 deadlines were approaching. Sentence correction section is very comprehensive and I could feel the improvement in my approach. I couldn't concentrate much on CR and RC sections due to lack of time. Finally my score improved 34. The score could have been much better, but I think I should've invested some more time in CR and RC. Summary is if you're weak at SC, then go for egmat. If you are looking for RC or CR then all you need is more practice.

I took GMAT in February 2018 and scored a 660 (Q47 and V34). I had made the fatal mistake of looking at the official verbal questions only in the last week before the exam. The official questions were quite different from the ones I had seen earlier from another test prep company.
I bought the ESR to find out how i did across the three sub-sections in verbal. The ESR showed that I scored in the 97% percentile in critical reasoning, 78th percentile in reading comprehension, and 39th percentile in sentence correction.
To improve my sentence correction skills, I enrolled in e-GMAT's verbal online course since I had read some great reviews about this course on GMAT club. I covered all their sentence correction modules and took all the practice tests they provided.
After that I attempted all questions in the Official guide and Official verbal guide. My accuracy was nearly 85%. I took the GMAT again in Dec 2018 and scored 720 (Q48, V41). In this attempt I scored in the 91st percentile in both critical reasoning and sentence correction and in the 88th percentile in reading comprehension.
I would attribute the increase in the sentence correction score from 39th to 91st percentile to just two resources:
1) e-GMAT's verbal online course.
2) Official GMAT questions.
For reading comprehension, I just relied on doing more official questions.
For anyone wanting to improve their verbal score, especially sentence correction, e-GMAT's verbal online course seems to be the best option so far.
