e-GMAT has helped me to improve my understanding of verbal section. They provide really through videos which breaks down the process step by step which not many programs provide, giving you a complete understanding of the topic.

The program is intense so you have invest time to do the work and also practice, practice, practice. I would recommend to invest an hour or 2 daily. Same goes to quant work and pace yourselves time to prepare for the exam.

I would strongly recommend people (native or non-native speakers) to use this program. It is really worth the investment and you will learn to enjoy doing verbal questions, especially when you start to see the patterns.

I took the egmat verbal online course after reading a lot of positive reviews about it in various forums and now I'm happy that I took that decision.

Egmat course is very well designed. The concepts are explained through easy to understand video tutorials and well written notes.

I created my own personalized notes out of the content and kept revising them time to time.

One of the best features of this course - the biggest value in the product if you ask me, is the timed practice questions and their analysis in verbal scholaranium. With verbal scholaranium a person gets enough timed practice, analysis and feedback to easily get a 40+ score in verbal.

For a non-native speaker looking to upgrade his/her skill in verbal, I would say definitely go for this course. The investment is the best value for money.

I’m a non native English speaker and e-GMAT has been invaluable to me. Some things just sound ‘incorrect’ to me but are grammatically correct. E-gmat helped me identify these types of answer choices. I highly recommend the course to anyone who’s struggling to go from a ~680 to a ~750+ On the customer support side also these guys are super helpful and were happy to answer questions within 24 hours.

Overall, highly recommended.

I've posted this before on another review but I'll do it again for the benefit of the community - The course is somewhat pricey but well worth it if you're already working and time constrained. I'm not a student anymore and don't have the time to sort through what's important and what's not - I like that e-GMAT just says: this is a problem, this is how you solve it, here's a quiz to make sure you understand, done .... onto the next one.

If you're looking for a no BS course that will bump up your GMAT score in a reasonable amount of time, I can vouch e-GMAT will help you do that. The rest is upto you.

This is the first review am writing after facing the real GMAT exam .I can confidently say that e-Gmat is the best course for verbal in the market.
After going through so many GMAT verbal books i realized that my verbal score was not improving at all.I
was stuck in the range of 25-26.I bought e-gmat online course after reading their excellent reviews online.
After going through the online verbal course ,I improved from 25 to 34 in just 2 weeks.I finally understood the concepts
which i was not able to understand earlier for instance,the use of modifier ,sentence run on,verb tense and parallelism was always so confusing .
Finally ,on exam day i was able to get 640 in Gmat with 35 in verbal.I cant believe i improved by 10 points in just 2-3 weeks of time . Iam going to attempt the
exam again by next month and now i am close to 35-37 in my mocks.For me e-gmat made a big difference.I would suggest to those who are searching for best material and
course on GMAT verbal ,please stop wasting your time and money .Just try egmat iam sure if i can improve others can also improve.

I would highly recommend this courese to anyone who wants to improve their scores in short span of time.The course is designed
in such as way that it was fun learning through the videos along with few series of tests ,which actually helped me to correct my basics and
improve my English fundamentals.If you get your fundamentals right then no question is actually tough on GMAT.

Quant was never an issue for me.But Verbal was always an Issue. I started my GMAT Verbal preparation by starting with few good recommended books. But on going through them the second time I realized that i had missed a lot of things and hence revisited them again. In this process I invested most of my preparation time in learning concepts than practicing.With this I gave my first attempt and it was disaster (V24,Q51).That's when i started with e-gmat verbal course.
As this was my second attempt and I was also working , course structure gave me enough encouragement to continue with my studies. The 'Correct' methodology you learn along with skillset and immediate application of them helped me a lot.And then off-course on completing the whole course there was Scholaranium to give me a very clear picture as to were i lag and which areas i need to focus on.
Thank you e-gmat for showing me a clear picture ahead when i was stuck and had no where to go.

After 1 month, I took my first diagnostic test using the GMAT Prep software and scored 580 (Q39,V30). I honestly felt defeated because I knew I needed at least a 700+ for the top B-schools. So I decided to work on my Verbal because my SC score was really low, I re-read the MGMAT SC book but looking back now I should have accepted that my issue was not only about putting in the time needed, but also about finding a good online platform with video lectures. I have never been one to study using only books.

I re-read the MGMAT SC but I think I made my situation worse by trying to memorize all the different rules. I was hesitant about spending more money on courses but one day when I was working on some OG SC questions after work, I failed 8 out of the 10 SC questions i had solved so out of frustration, I bought the eGMAT SC course. It was truly a blessing. The way the topics are broken down is incredible. For each video, there is a pre-assessment quiz which was good so that I can access my knowledge on the topic (e.g modifiers, pronouns etc). Then the video explanations explained the topics and addressed common errors. Afterwards a post assessment quiz was given.

After watching half of eGMAT videos, I took another practice test and scored GMAT Prep 2: 640 (Q45, V35). Quite an improvement from V27 but I knew that I needed to find more time to work on SC.

In October, I took the Exam Pack 1 and scored 680 (Q48, V35). I retook the exam again but the questions were 30-40% the same so I scored 770 (Q50, V45) so I didn't get too excited. 2 weeks later, I finished the remaining verbal videos and took another practice test and scored 710 (Q48, V40).

I improved 8 points in verbal from 33 to 41. Key for me was my basics improved with this course, and then I did tons of practice with strong basics.

I tried studying from other popular course guides, but for me it didn't helped much.
I was more like guessing the questions, it took time to even realize the areas where I needed improvement.
Best thing about this e-gmat course for me is it is really interesting and keeps you hooked through visualization and short animated lectures, with tons of practice before and after the lecture. The written e-gmat articles are even more helpful. I just liked everything about this course including the verbal workshops that I got to attend, integrated reasoning course that came free with this and gmatclub membership that I got.

I started my GMAT with classroom courses in Delhi, and then took to manhatten, but my score did not improve much. I was stuck at 630-640.I was not sure what was i was missing , then a friend of mine who had given his GMAT recently and scored 740 in just 2 months suggested me E-GMAT Course.
I took the online course and not the live prep. To my surprise it suggested to understand the concepts first unlike my classroom course with an institute in Delhi which emphasized on shortcuts.

It took me 2 months to complete verbal and the mock scores have improved a lot. my last score was 710.
The course explains the concept and application very well. I can easily identify the errors from the question sentence itself now, well i need to memorize all the concepts still. most of the time i forget the concept. I would really recommend it to everyone who is struggling to improve the verbal score.

I am yet to give the GMAT in December and i hope my actual score is consistent with my mock test scores.

Who am I?
I am a non-native English speaker with an engineering background. When I started my GMAT preparation, I was sure that I would not take any coaching class and learn through self-preparation. As is the case with most other engineering students, I had a strong hand on quant, but I lacked the necessary verbal skills tested on the exam. For me, those 75 minutes of the Verbal section were the real deal. Therefore in the context of the review, I am just going to talk about how I dealt with this specific section. I had an average GPA in college. Therefore, I really wanted a stellar GMAT score to offset my undergrad GPA.

How did I prepare for my first GMAT?
For the entire verbal section (SC, CR and RC), I used Manhattan strategy guides to learn the concepts tested. In fact, I read some of these strategy guides twice to really absorb the content and learn its application. I then practiced all the problems in the OG. Honestly, I was not at all confident with my preparation a week before my exam. In my official mocks, I scored in the range of 690 – 720, with a consistent score of Q50 in math and highly varying score (V31 – V37) in verbal.
On the actual exam day in June 2015, I scored a total score of 700 (Q50 V34, IR8, AWA 5.5). I was highly disappointed in myself as I personally believed that I could have done a lot better. I decided to take some time off and focus on my work.

What did I learn from my first GMAT?
I realized that I was very poor on time management throughout the verbal section. In some way or the other, I was always short of time, adding more stress on myself. Upon brainstorming, I realized that the reasons for poor time management were – stamina issues by the end of the exam, a poor foundation of concepts on tougher problems of GMAT, and added stress that was in a circular loop with my poor time management.

What did I decide to do after my first GMAT?
Three things –
1. Have a strong foundation of the concepts tested on GMAT
2. Have good time management on different sections
3. Have no surprises during the test – essentially minimize the stress that builds up during the exam

How did I prepare for my second GMAT?
After realizing the two broad focus areas of my preparation, I decided to purchase the sentence correction module of e-GMAT and Powerscore CR Bible. I spoke to a lot of folks who had been in the same situation as the one I was in, and most of them recommended these two books. I didn’t pursue anything for RC as I had a strong reason for that. My new strategy was to become extremely accurate and quick in sentence correction as out of the three, it has the least amount of gray area. With added time at hand, I could then devote a good chunk of my time in both RC and CR.
e-GMAT’s course is very nicely tailored to help almost anyone understand the basic concepts of grammar. I would highly recommend it to folks who have tirelessly put significant effort in their verbal preparation and still see little returns. With this newly found strong foundation in sentence correction, I then read through posts of Ron Purewal on Manhattan forum. This helped me train my ear on what the GMAT prefers. Over time, I started loving sentence correction problems. My accuracy went from somewhere around 60% to almost 90%. You would wonder how doing extremely well on one section is good enough to achieve a stellar score. Well, allow me to break the myth here. I was able to tackle CR and RC problems a lot more comfortably as I was never really short on time. So essentially, my first goal (have a strong foundation of concepts) helped me achieve my second goal (have good time management). Before the exam, I took four days off from work to get up to speed. In this last one week, I achieved my third goal, which was that there should be no surprises. I took official mocks every single day starting from Saturday and scored the following in CAT 3, 4, 5 and 6: 770, 760, 750, 760 (in the same order). Although CAT 3 and 4 were repeat tests, CAT 5 and 6 were not. This made me confident that I can score well and that all I need to do is achieve my three goals that didn’t go very well for my first exam.
On the actual exam day (Thursday, October 20, 2016), I got up at 11 AM and watched an episode of South Park while having lunch, a habit that I repeated for all my mocks. I went to the test center with an extremely calm head. In AWA, I was left with 6 minutes at hand after I wrote an essay that I was happy with. In IR, I was again left with 7 minutes when I was on the last question (got 11/12 correct). Again in Quant, I finished the paper 11 minutes earlier. In Verbal, I was always a minute or two ahead of time and that helped me take care of the stress I used to face. I was able to answer all the sentence correction questions very comfortably and quickly. As I had some good amount of time saved from SC section, I spent that time on CR and RC to really be sure that I am marking the right answer. Everything was going well and very consistent with my experience from mocks. And well, the results were very consistent too – I scored a 760 (Q50 V41, IR 8, AWA 5.5)!

Thanks to e-GMAT for helping me get past the barriers that I faced in my first GMAT!

Cheers,
Tariq

I started my GMAT Prep in November 2015. It went on and off for about 6 months. I had been going through OG books without any basics and understood the simple fact that I was going nowhere. I received an email from GmatClub about e-gmat and I registered with it to avail the free tutorials. I really liked the tutorials that I watched. They had basics, relevant examples and indian accent( which helped me comprehend better). After that I checked the course's reviews and they seemed one of the best. Along with it, the cost was one of the lowest and they were providing free access to gmatclub tests and 800score.com. So, with all these reasons I chose e-gmat verbal online course.

The course is very well structured and examples are provided where ever necessary. After each portion there are questions to practice. I really liked the scholaranium portion of the course. The scholaranium quiz gives real time test like experience with all varieties of questions and you can customize the quiz.

The doubts were cleared almost within a day on the questions on the e-gmat site. And the best thing was they extended my access to an extra month when it was about to get over. Although I have never got response from e-gmat moderators on question discussions on gmatclub.

Overall, I think it is a good and basics verbal course for non-natives.
