The E-gmat Quant Live Prep is excellent. It is structured. Core concepts are broken down into manageable chunks. Everything makes sense. Furthermore, the LIVE sessions of the course introduced me to the pace. E-gmat features something called 'rapid fire' which does not give you a chance to think. You either know it (in which case you'll answer the question based on core concepts straight away) or you won't i.e. think for too long or get confused. When others answer in the allotted time, you have it right there in front of you - you’re not competitive and it is time to strengthen those concepts. In my opinion, these advantages alone are well worth the investment in the course.

I am an engineering student and I always believed that quant should not be any problem for me at all and it is my strong section, after working for 6 years it is bit rusty but would be fine if I work upon it, Unfortunately, I was wrong, my way of approaching questions was very time consuming and I totally forgot some of the important topics like probability, inequality ,stats then e-gmat quant came to my rescue and helped me with some of the rust basics to hard problems of 700 level, I am pretty sure with the amount of topics they have covered it would be sufficient for my quant prepration.

This proved to be an excellent course buy for me. I was already at Q48 level when i registered for this course. After the course started i realized how misguided my quant prep had been. The course structure was excellent.
1) A Pre-concept quiz to check your level on every single sub-topic which was really helpful.
2) Concept files to learn/fine tune your skills.
3) Practice files from E-Gmat and OG.
After all these steps you feel much more confident about the skills but topping this online content with Live sessions seals the deal. Japinder, took the live sessions and it was just brilliant. The structure of rapid tests followed by higher level difficulty questions was really good for people looking to score 50-51 on Quant. The live sessions focus on good high level GMAT questions which help in getting that extra confidence and skills to tackle GMAT quant.
All in all , a very useful course and i would highly recommend this course.

I subscribed to eGMAT’s Verbal Live Prep course to begin with, since I knew I needed help in Verbal area to cross the 700 mark. I wasn’t initially attracted to their Quant course since I was fairly good at Quant myself– consistently scoring at 48 in my mocks as well as real GMAT.
I decided to add it to my GMAT prep after taking a free session on a Sunday morning on Number properties. Similar to eGMAT’s verbal course, their Quant course is well organized, divided into segments starting with concepts in each topic and slowly allowing you to practice ad build skills. It is a good course to summarize and brush up on GMAT Math, particularly, if Math is already your strong area and you’d rather focus energies on improving verbal while not compromising on score and prep for GMAT Quant.
I recommend attending the sessions that come with the Live Prep course since they help you firm up the concepts and problem solving approach that is the bed rock to solving the problem correctly, consistently and within the allowed time. It may be the jolt you need to reach 49-51 range in real GMAT.

I think that one of the key secrets to achieve 700+ score on the GMAT for people who doesn’t have the natural ability for standardized tests is perseverance.
I have been studying for a while, most of the time with OG and with resources from big brands. I took classes, and private tutoring, but the improvements were not there. It was until I hear about E-Gmat that my scores start improving. I was first skeptical, so I decided to take the free video sessions for SC, and after that I understood that E-Gmat method was ideal for me. I first subscribed to the Verbal Live Prep and got access to Live Sessions for each of the sections, and a huge number of explanatory videos that where very helpful to improve my comprehension and abilities of specific topics. After understanding that my issue was not the time given for each question, but my gaps in the approach and concepts, I finally untapped my potential on the Verbal section, improving on my mock tests from an original V24 to V40.
For the Quant section, since I am an engineer, I decided not to follow their method, and stuck on self-practice of problems on the OG.
After a bunch of mock tests from different resources, I got to the point of getting the 700+ results I was expecting. So I decided to present the GMAT at the end of 2015. I was very confident of getting a high score, but unfortunately my quant skills abandoned me that day, and even though my verbal results were very strong, I did not get the 700+ result I was expecting.
Therefore after a break of studying, I decided to try again, but this time I got the subscription to the Quant sessions on E-gmat during this 2nd quarter of 2016. I am planning to take the exam in two months, I am confident that now that I am using the same resources for my Verbal and Quant, I will achieve my target score.
I found the e-gmat method as the most logical and easy to follow when compared to other big brands. Additionally, I like that it has a very well re-designed and interactive webpage that allows you to easily keep track of your progress, and keep engaged and motivated to continue studying. Finally, its content is very complete, explanations to OG questions are very detail, instructors are very responsive to student questions, and customer service makes you feel as special and unique as you can be.
Due to this, in my opinion E-gmat is a great resource and might be enough to get well prepared for the GMAT

Had heard so much about this course. Pretty much lived up every bit of its hype. After hitting a wall, it helped me make that final leap in quant. Delivered dot on their 2 section score guarantee.
The best part was the ease of learning. No need to thrash diagrams and formulae over and over again. The lernaing process is very intuitive. Actually, I realized that learning online was more conducive to the GMAT testing scenario as there is no time to do your diagrams and calculations on the paper. Overall a brilliant experience and money well spent to make up for my despicable GPA.

e-GMAT Quant Live Prep is a relatively new course and it not as famous as eGMAT's verbal course. It might be because e-GMAT verbal course's is designed for non-natives and generally, non natives for e.g Indians are good at GMAT level Quant, so they might not be as enthusiastic about the Quant course as they will be for Verbal course. However, for anyone who is willing to spend a little bit of extra time on the quant section, I would recommend the Quant Live course too as it will help scoring those extra 3-4 points from Q48 to Q51.

Before eGMAT, I used several prep materials (forums + MGMAT guides), but I got a true help from the eGMAT quant course.
I liked the design and the structure, and all the support materials (email, forum and the learning platform Scholaranium).
It focuses on the concepts that are sufficient to master the topics, and you can clearly quantify your understanding on the section with pre assessment and post assessment tests.
There was a considerable improvement on my preparation. I hope that this review can be helpful to decide your preparation course. I strongly recommend this course for people with ambition of high scores on GMAT.

I purchased both Verbal and Quant e-GMAT courses. Overall I found them as highly useful and fully providing value for money. One of the main merits for me is that the courses are accompanied with audio, which helped to perceive information easier. In addition, the e-GMAT team made great job in visualizing concepts.
The Verbal section is well designed and covers almost all topics which could be encountered during the test, although there are some issues aspects in Sentence Correction section which are not discussed there.
The Quant section provides with general concepts, but it would be difficult to obtain really high score band relying only on this. So I would recommend to look for additional sources of task for practice.
Webinars provided by e-GMAT are worth participating as they dig deeper in details and really boost understanding of discussed topics.

As I had been out of school for almost 5 years I purchased the quant course thinking that it will be a good refresher. It was much more than that. The practice problems were very challenging and i had to go back and learn concepts again to be able to attempt them correctly. This is an excellent course for people who have been out of touch for some time and do not have access to high school books. It brushes your memeory and at many times challenges you to think w/o doing the problems mechanically. This is exactly what the GMAT tests. At the end of the course one is thorough with the concepts and is confident of taking the exam. I feel this is the single most important factor to do well in an exam such as the GMAT.
