Pros:
1. Provides a very well structured study plan with concepts and quizzes for each section. (This may be useful for anyone who lacks discipline)
2. Comes with free mock exams that can generate performance analytical reports. (However, the timer doesn't work well, leading to wrong timings of your response time)
3. The e-GMAT time was kind enough to extend my course when I couldn't finish it in time. (The login was valid for about 6 months and they extended it for 2 months)

Cons:
1. Repetition in both contents and methods. I completed the whole course and took notes diligently. At the end I found some similar notes appeared multiple times--some contents were repeated here and there. The few e-GMAT methods used to solve Verbal questions were heavily repeated.

2. Methods don't work. In theory they sound good. But after studying the course for 8 months, I found these methods very time consuming and mentally draining in practice. They just don't work well in mock/real GMAT exams.

3. The course is very inflexible. This inflexibility, coupled with the fact that the course is extremely content heavy, makes it very time consuming to finish the whole course. It took me 8 months to finish (I work full time). I can't control my pace. Some contents are easy for me and repeated too much. The repetition plus sheer volume of contents buries the important areas which I may be weak at. It feels as if you read a whole library of books within 8 months. At the end, your mind goes blank. Maybe you remember a little here and there but nothing stands out. ROI is just so low: you spent so much time reaping so little improvement in your verbal skills.

I am a latin-american, so a non-native student. Since I studied engineering, the Quant part didn't seem as difficult as the Verbal section.

Even though I am not finished the course, i have just reserved the GMAT test for the first week of November. I was stuck in Verbal (27-31), but E-gmat verbal online has just unlock my score and wanted to share this with all the students who may be in the same situation.

I started to study from some books and practicing with the official bank of questions of the GMAT, for both the quant a verbal sections, and after a couple of months I took a Mock with the official GMATPrep, obtaining 630 (M49, V27). It was confusing, in one hand I was happy to easily see 49 in the quant section, but was shocked to see that I was under the mean in the verbal. I continued practicing and took two other mocks, but I was unable to improve my verbal ability over the 31 score. My greatest weaknesses came from Sentence Correction and Critical Reasoning (in RC obtained 41). It was very frustrating.

Then I started to read from experiences of other test takers and found out that it was quite usual, they said that you cannot improve more only with "brute force", you need an approach. Then a friend from my job recommended me the E-GMAT Online course.

First, I discovered that a video course is way more effective than books, I really liked the graphics.

Second, the general approach is based on structure (SC, CR, RC-I am still finishing this one). This, for an engineer like me, was something that talked in my language, it makes a huge difference.

The Sentence Correction approach is very different from what I was doing before. It is focused on developing your ability by first centered in Understanding the Meaning, second structure, third learning to identify all the mistakes of a Sentence before going to the answer choices. This new approach is a complete change in how I understood each question, because I learnt to identify every type of question and discarding answer choices started to seem easier.

The Critical Reasoning also helped me a lot. It is centered in understanding completely the arguments, and after in Pre-Thinking solutions. This pre-thinking process made me understand the direction of the line of reasoning of the arguments. Another feature that helped me a lot was the typologies of correct and incorrect answers for every type of question.

After completing the SC and CR in that order, I just have taken a mock from GMATPrep, obtaining 710 (M48, V38). Watching the 700+ was a huge relief for me, more if the improvement on the Verbal was so dramatic. I took some quizzes only of Verbal and saw the same score (38-39), confirming my improvement. So I decided to write a review for those who are experiencing the same frustration of being stuck in the early 30s of the verbal.

Well, this is all I want to share by now, hope to write a happy new review in November just after the test, but by now I definitely recommend the E-GMAT online course for all students struggling with the Verbal.

As a student of EGMAT, who has taken Verbal Online, I felt significant improvement in my score. The conceptual clarity that EGMAT provides is unparalleled and is undeniably helps someone get a great Verbal score. Not only is the content great but also the teaching plan is top notch. Following the SC plan really helped. The EGMAT Verbal online SC itself is a great product. Even CR is above average, but I won’t recommend RC, since it is similar to what everybody else teaches. Also the video method suited me since it was easy for me to stay at home and see the videos whenever I wanted to brush up any concept.

'Verbal for non-natives' - that's the perfect way to describe the e-GMAT Verbal Online Course. Like many other non-native speakers, verbal section was my achilles' heel. After thorough research about available verbal courses, I decided to buy e-GMAT Verbal Online. And I am happy to have trusted e-GMAT for my verbal preparation. Not only they have a huge collection of quality questions but also their solutions are superb. I also liked the way course is structured in several modules - each covering a set of related concepts; it helped me develop sound fundamental. Also noteworthy is the size of their question pool, which helped me build upon the fundamentals and be ready for my test day.
Overall, it's a must for any non-native speaker.

e-GMAT course is much more impactful than any other course that I have taken. What I have learned from this course in 3 days is more than what I learned after using a leading test prep SC book for 3 weeks. The explanations by e-GMAT are fantastic. Explanations by other test prep companies seem shallow. Furthermore, only at e-GMAT have I found a standardized process to solve SC questions that works equally well for 500 and 800 level questions. The flexibility to pause, rewind, and replay enables me to learn at my own pace.
As a non-native English speaker, I found it hard to crack the sentence correction questions. My accuracy was around 60% and how many ever problems I solved from various resources, I wasn't able to improve my accuracy. That's when I came to know about e-GMAT. Barely after a week of studying this course, I could see a significant improvement in my accuracy. The way e-GMAT explains the concepts is refreshingly different and it makes solving sentence correction questions pretty interesting. I was using numerous other resources and everything had somewhat the same approach and some of the questions got repeated across the materials. e-GMAT gave me a solid method to approach the sentence correction questions and I could apply the same method in all types of questions whether simple or difficult. Once I completed the concepts and exercises in the course, I stared solving problems from OG and I could achieve an accuracy level of 80 - 90% every time. I have already recommended e-GMAT course to couple of my friends and would not hesitate to recommend this product to anyone who is struggling with sentence correction. I came across e-GMAT through various reviews in Gmatclub forum. I was initially confused between crackverbal and e-GMAT and finally decided to go with e-GMAT after attending one of Rajat's webminars. The course starts with very basics of verbal concepts (subjects & verbs) and goes deep in each of the topic well. Each video starts with a pre assessment to assess your existing skill level and then the concept videos. Finally, there will be an application file where they test you and score your skill learned through the concept videos. If it is below the acceptable grade, then they will suggest you to redo the concepts. There is an additional section for each of the concept which gives selected OG questions related to each of the concept taught. This provides a grip of the topic and how it will be tested in real GMAT.

e-GMAT course is extremely comprehensive. I usually struggle to structure my time / plan for studying; however, e-GMAT provide a fool proof schedule that helped me improve my score from 650 to 700 in three weeks. As a non-native English speaker, the contents in the course really help break down the structure of grammars (useful in the GMAT and real life) and making the verbal section much more "quant-like." As far as the strategy of attacking questions, I was skeptical at first as it took longer than my "natural" method but as I get use to the e-GMAT method, my accuracy sky rocketed. Thank you e-GMAT!

If you are weak in verbal then 90% chances are you are struggling with SC portion big time.

Let me be honest, you will not be master or learn grammar per say but you will definitely learn almost all the concepts required for GMAT.
Course is well designed and categorized in orderly fashion - walks you through concepts one step at a time.
Audio is a big plus, it keeps you engaged and in between interactive questions make sure you are paying attention.

Of course, it's not a magic wand that you join the course and you will learn all or will get V40+. You have to put effort and explore a bit outside too. The course cover most of the things but you need to practice the concept learnt in different scenarios on different type of sentences, comprehensions and reasoning questions.

For those (including me) who use their ears for SC, e-GMAT presents a pretty well defined frame work. You can modify it depending upon what best suits you but you will definitely start using logic to choose answer instead of 'sound/ear'.

I was pretty comfortable with CR and RC, but still those two sections are as good as SC.

I can blindly suggest this to anyone wanting to score till V40. Above V40 it's your own effort no course can guarantee.

They have large practice question bank, Scholaranium, which can be customized too as per your own choice. Good way to track your progress.

Very good Resource for SC

The course is very well structured - Study Plan, Content and scholaranium.Importance of Approach to each kind of problem was an eye-opener to me.
The strategy of solving SC by understanding the Meaning and Logic on SC is priceless. It helped me solve all high level problems on SC. It took me a lot of practice initially to understand the importance of this approach. Adapting to it has increased by SC score from 36 to 40.
Couldn't find the resource much useful for CR and RC. I haven't done much practice on scholaranium though.
But after reading so many positive reviews of scholaranium, now I'm tempted to do it before I retake my exam.

With so much information available on GMAT, I did not know where to start. I decided to take GMAT after I resigned my job after 12 years to prepare to welcome my 2nd baby to this world. I ordered Official guide and started solving questions between July and Dec 2015 randomly juggling between my 2 young kids and studying. Most of the times I would get the problem right, but the timing per question was not right.

I tried giving GMAT mock test in Dec and scored a 470. Then I re-solved the official guide and I thought I was good to book a date for exam. When I took another mock exam again in Jan end, the score was again 490. So what went wrong? What happened to my effort put into solving the official guide. This meant, I essentially did not have an approach to solve the problem.

This is when I decided to buy the e-gmat course after going through some reviews. I first bought the quant. This is good for people like me who are scoring around Q25-30 in mock. Just studying this material will give u nearly 10-15 point improvement in quant taking the score to at least Q40-Q45. To score beyond this, you will need material from gmat club, for topics like overlapping sets , co-ordinate geometry etc. I would highly recommend e-gmat quant material, if you are scoring in the range or 30.

The verbal material from e-gmat also is very good. It helped me push my verbal score from V 19 to V30. I think the pre thinking and meaning analysis approach is what gives the advantage. They teach from the basics which makes the foundation strong. The material is divided into small sections, so it helps avoid information overload as we can take a logical break after 1 chapter. I highly recommend this material. Sentence Correction and CR material is excellent. RC material can be improved to discuss a little more on the types of passages.


With this e-gmat material, I prepared from Mar to May and gave my GMAT on May 26. I scored 610, nearly a 120 point improvement. I am certainly happy with my progress though I know this score will not take me anywhere.

I took a break and have just started preparing for my 2nd attempt due in Oct. This time I hope to score the magical 700. My revision of verbal has taken my score to V35 in mock! Waiting to revise my quant material. Will keep you posted on how my actual exam goes.

Most of the GMAT takers from India struggle with the verbal section. After exploring on internet I enrolled for E-GMAT verbal course. I bet this is the best Verbal course available for the Non-natives. The way concepts are explained, it help in building a good base. Also what I liked the most is they have categorized the question types in each section and embedding explanation for each question type.
Any doubts were clarified . In all I should say a must for GMAT verbal. I am still to take the actual GMAT again , but now I am confident and in the CATs , I can see the improvement.
