Before enrolling in E-gmat my accuracy in SC used to be 60-70%, after a week or so into the course I was at 80%+ accuracy. It all started making sense why I was getting the questions wrong and how to apporach SC efficiently. The 3 step process worked wonders for me. The video format of the course is very effective and provides in depth knowledge of all the things you need to master SC. The course is organized and has a nice flow which helps you get the maximum learning out of it. CR and RC courses are way better than other courses I have come across. The overall course really helped me go from V28-30 to V37-40 range. So I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to go beyond V37+.

I had given my GMAT more than a year ago with score of 620 and at that point of time I felt so low as soon as verbal section came. I had lost all hope. My quant was always strong, and CR,SC and RCs looked like herculean to me. I was quiet week in english . 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 consequently poor score.

Then,I read so many positive reviews about e-GMAT and I cannot thank e-gmat enough for making an awesome program. After a yearlong break, I felt the need to start over again the videos provided by e-GMAT made the journey a fun . I make handwritten notes while watching videos. I would really recommend it to you all as well. I make my notes nice and add screenshots and links to them.

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.

The other thing that I absolutely loved about the VLP was the scholaranium. It allows you to strenghten the weaker section. The random mix of questions of all difficulty level is also great help. You can create your own mocks without subscribing any redundant material from other sources.

Thank you e-GMAT once again
All the best to you all !!

Hello,
I started my GMAT prep in the month of September 2016. However I took a misstep in my early days of prep by trying to read as many books as possible, from Kaplan premier to MGMAT series. While the books are good content wise, I never gathered focus or gained confidence for the d-day. In fact, my successive insipid scores in Kaplan CATs only validated my belief that books aren't my cup of tea for GMAT and by the mid of Dec, I was looking for alternatives.

I attended one of the e-gmat webinar's and quite liked their approach. The videos were crisp, to the point and the learning was tested immediately via a post module quiz. Comparing the pre and post quiz scores are a great way to boost your self confidence. I immediately signed up for their SC course as that was my weakest link.

For a non-native english speaker for me, the course structure was ideal. The course starts with the foundation topics, meaning the structure of a sentence, the components i.e phrases, clauses, verbs etc which clears up any misconceptions you have had all along. The modules dealing with other GMAT topics such as pronouns, verb-ing, verb-ed, comparisions, idioms are life-savers. In fact my scores in SC showed consistent uptrend in mocks during and after the SC course. In my GmatClub test sessions, my SC success rate went from 60-70's to mid 90's consistently. And more importantly, it removed the fear that I harbored about SC so much that I was actually looking forward to SC's

All in all, I would gladly recommend e-gmat SC course to anyone looking for SC coaching. I couldn't have scored 730(v40, q49) without it.

I took the E-gmat course after looking at a number of debriefs , stressing the need for E-gmat to help ace verbal. Being a non native speaker , i was happy that i found something that would help me cross the 700 barrier

Pros -

Covers SC , CR , RC , IR i.e 2 sections out of 4 i.e QA , VA , IR , AWA

lucid explanations

Cons -

Expensive ( better to share costs ) i feel at that price ,it could have offered a lot more in terms of no of questions
Egmat claims to have 3500 questions but the question bank has around 800 questions RC , CR , SC combined .

A lot of questions like find the noun , verb in the sentence etc are present but they are not gmat like , i mean they do help one prepare for Verbal section but claiming to have 3500 questions seems more of a marketing gimmick

I strongly believe every thing has 2 sides to it and so does this course. Studying this alone wont land you a 40+ in verbal , some techniques are only suitable for certain type of questions is what i feel. E-gmat definitely helps in preparation.

Since the course has helped me i would recommend it to people as a last resort , there is manhattan SC , Aristotle SC clubbed with various SC posts on the gmat club , all these resources utilised efficiently would give the same result as Egmat


Scholarium is easy to use but cannot switch between course and scholarium easily . I need to reopen the browser to access videos , this was an issue at times for me

Questions - 3/5
Platform - 3/5
Concepts 4-5

Overall experience - 3.5/5 but no 4
hence rating it 3/5

it's a good course but i am sure the benefits can be effectively reached in other ways as well

I was preparing for GMAT for a while now but nothing scared me more than Sentence Correction. I tried learning from different sources but nothing much helped. So after going through the reviews of E-Gmat in different forums, I thought of giving it a try.

Believe me, there is not a better material than E-Gmat verbal videos. They are short, crisp, and to the point. After each lesson, there will be quiz where one may check their understanding of a particular lesson. The best thing about this is that you may post your queries on forum regarding the questions or any particular concept. Every question may be analyzed differently by different students and this is where this works beautifully. You may post your doubts even after reviewing the solution as you may had analyzed it differently and your queries will be answered by experts.

The second best thing about it is the videos structure. The videos are short, approximately around 15 mins on average. This really helps working guys like me who cannot devote longer hours due to tight work schedule. They have followed this strategy across the whole course from maths to verbal.

Overall this course is pretty much balanced.This course is best for anyone who wishes to excel in SC. . The Scholarinium will greatly help u to analyze your mistakes and to improve your efficiency.

Go for it...

I really liked the structured approach to SC,and CR and the way it has been explained in throughout the course.

I completed the course a month back and really loved it , tough I was not able to make the best use of it as i had to postpone my GMAT date due to personal reasons and my subscription expired before I could make the best use of the course and the scholaranium of e gmat.

But , nonetheless the course was good and I really liked the technique used to impart the knowledge, The pattern how the contents unfold ,and even the basic level of the topic is covered .

For a non native user it is really very helpful as it provides with knowledge ,which is not available in other courses.

I'm not a native speaker but since I had pretty high TOEFL scores (115 out of 120) and I was an English major, I didn't think GMAT verbal should be too hard. However, I got stuck with V31 from the official mock test till 3 months later when I took my first official test (still stuck at V31). During the 3 months of my preparation I went to a GMAT in person course (of 20 people) in my country and learned the tips to sentence correction--mostly focusing on grammar, comparison between the two similar options and other tips such as "don't choose the sentence with ',with' (with after a comma)".

While the tips helped me get to the 600s, I checked my ESR and realized that I could never get a 700 level SC question right. Another problem was that, since I was too busy using the tips, I didn't really think about the meaning of the sentence, so I would often get tricked by the false parallelism.

Payal in E-gmat helped me in the foundation concept of sentence correction to break down the long sentences and calm down to see what is the main information the sentence is trying to convey. The rest of the information are just "noise", to distract you from the main sentence. By breaking down the sentence, I learned to read much faster and understood the meaning of the sentence. It also helped me to locate the subject and verb much easily, which is important since subject verb agreement is such a big test focus. Finally, I concentrated much more on what the different modifiers are trying to modify, so I wouldn't be tricked by the different placements of modifiers.

Another big takeaway for me was the modifier courses, especially on VERB-ed and VERB-ing modifiers. It made me realize that I never really understood how VERB-ing modifiers could change the meaning of the sentence, or the relationship between the subject and verb would be illogical.

To sum up, E-gmat's sentence correction course helped me break down long sentences to really understand the meaning of the sentence. The course in turn also helped improve my reading comprehension skills, either for CR or RC. E-gmat helped me improve my verbal from 31 to 36 in 3 months, more than my original method using tips and grammatical rules did. Thank you e-gmat!

Not having used GMAT style English at work for a very long time (being a specialist doctor), the Verbal section was not an easy task. During the initial stages of my preparation, the SC and the CR were getting tricky (I had started doing the OG)

So based on reviews on the web (gmat club, beat the gmat), I enrolled for the e-gmat course, Verbal online.

Course structure: The structure of the course is very helpful, starting from the basics and progressing in difficulty.

Content: The content is very elaborate and extensive. In fact, the course covers almost everything the GMAT asks.

Questions: The questions are of all difficulty levels, but arranged in a very good format such that you get a mixture of all levels, as in the real exam.

Scholaranium: This concept is very helpful as I could work on my weaknesses and leverage on my strong areas. The explanations offered are good. Regarding the difficulty level, I found some questions to be of a higher difficulty level with very close choices, something I did not experience in the real exam.

Expert support: I did not post any queries to experts because whenever I found the explanation difficult, the discussion part cleared my doubts. Hence, I would give a high rating to this section.

Overall, the e-gmat verbal course is a must for all non- natives to score above 700 in the real exam. Highly recommend the product to all aspirants.

I was struggling with the Verbal part of the Gmat right from when I have started preparing for the Gmat. Being a non-native speaker, I was always weak with the verbal part. I struggled most with the Sentence Correction section while preparing. The most recommended material for the Sentence Correction module was Manhattan Sentence correction book. However after starting with it, I was still kind of feeling left out. I was not able to grasp the basics and therefore section like modifiers and parallelism were not making sense. After going through many reviews in Gmat club, I decided to buy the e-gmat Sentence correction module. I started with their first chapter and went step by step. After completing the whole module, my accuracy in Sentence correction shot up. Concepts were more clear and I was able to solve questions more importantly with strategy and not conscience.

it is a very good course for a non natives. each video has been carefully made so as to ensure all topics/subtopics and techniques are covered.
dashboard-makes it very convenient to access videos topic wise
SC-meaning based approach is impressive, it improved my accuracy.
CR-good quality videos that give approaches that can be applied. pre-thinking approach really works.
RC-they press upon summarizing and looking at the big picture in an essay-that really helps. However some of the video lessons in this section that talk about summarizing passages word for word, won't work on the actual test, because there isn't enough time.

I went from a V30 TO V34, I could've certainly improved more, had I practiced more.
