I couldn't have achieved this feat without the help of E-GMAT's Verbal Live Prep for sure. The course is so well defined that all you need is to give just an hour a day at minimum and a complete revision of the week's study on the weekend. I was not new to online courses when I subscribed to E-GMAT. I had already subscribed to Magoosh but I think Magoosh's Qaunt course is way better than their Verbal Course. I would suggest everyone to dig Manhattan Sentence Correction guide before delving into E-GMAT's Verbal Live prep. Although Manhattan's SC guide is an ocean of grammar rules and sentence structure but it will definitely create a strong base and then leave it to Verbal Live Prep for the rest.
The live sessions delivered by Krishna cemented the foundations laid in the interactive modules. I will highly recommend the E-GMAT Verbal live prep for non-native speakers. I improved 15 points in a matter of two months.

Thank you

Shubham

I decided to apply for a Top10 B-School long time ago. I was totally aware that to have at least some chance to be admitted I needed to reach a really great score in the GMAT, a quite difficult exam, as long as I had heard by then. So I decided to buy some study material, from some of the most prestigious publishers in the world. I will not name them here, but they are some of the people who have produced really enriching material in the past.

By that time I was working in the US, a dream I had pursued for the previous two years and hence I wanted to demonstrate my supervisors my commitment with my job and with my company. Therefore, I had no much time left and it was clear that this GMAT thing would take me a while and I would not get my super score overnight. However, I was not aware of how difficult this thing would really be…

I am an engineer, so I supposed that Quantitative wouldn´t be a big deal. So although I studied for it I focused on Verbal. I am a non-native, but I think I have been average good at English all my life, so I felt confident that I would improve quite a lot and would get a high score. So after studying for some months I scheduled my exam within several weeks and, went for it. For whatever reason, I did not do any practice exam in advance (don´t ask me why, probably in my arrogant way of thinking I felt I didn´t need it). I did the exam, feeling fine about it, but I was amazed when the screen said I had just got 570. I was really expecting way higher score than that one, something close to the 700s. That day I realized that GMAT was something to take into account, not just a mere exam like those of college. This is hard stuff.

So I revisited the study material I had, the one from the recognized publisher (I am not using “recognized” ironically, they have really good stuff out there), and did tons of exercises, with not more guide that the one in the books I was using. I studied hard for a year, using each loose hour I had to study (I was travelling a lot for work by that time, I did many of those exercises in planes and hotel rooms), confident that if I put hours and hours on it I would improve my score considerably. That strategy had worked out pretty well all my life, why wouldn´t work with this regards? I was absolutely wrong… I took the exam several more times, but I did not get to the 700s not even close.

I was really upset: I had studied a good amount of hours, gone through my books and repeated the strategies learnt on them. What was going on? No matter how hard I was working on this and how much of my time I was diverting to this, I wasn´t able to surpass a line. I wasn´t being inefficient in my study, I was having hours of study of good quality, but that wasn´t counting. It was like having and upper barrier above me that I was not capable to break. So one Sunday, searching in internet I found GMATClub. I didn´t get into it too much that day (mistake, GMATClub is just amazing, I would like to post another review of them here), but there I was recommended to attend a free webinar by a company I didn´t know about. It was scheduled an hour later and I had nothing better to do that Sunday, so I joined. There was a gent giving a brief explanation about how is GMAT exam organized first, and then describing a feeling that he assured many people experienced when preparing the exam. He was saying that for many people, no matter how hard they study, they were stopped up to a certain level and a certain score. Beyond that level, they weren’t able to pass. By that time, my concentration on the webinar was 1000%, that gent was describing basically what was happening to me! He was saying that there were several reasons for not being able to surpass such barrier, but the most important were not having developed your core skills properly, and probably the way you were absorbing knowledge (in my case, my books from the traditional publishers). He defined that situation of being stuck at one level as “Score Plateau”, which is a very appropriate term, in my opinion. That gent was Rajat Sadana, co-founder of e-GMAT, and he was presenting his e-GMAT Verbal Live Prep course.

I decided to take that course right away and soon I started to realize how misled my study strategy had been. The Verbal Live Prep course changes from top to bottom the way you approach the Verbal section of the GMAT Exam. Rajat, Payal, Krishna and the rest of experts of e-GMAT (whom I am very grateful to) change the way you envision this in both form and content.

Content: because they re-define many of the core concepts that you need to understand previously to master the GMAT: the difference between accuracy and ability, the real definition of an Assumption or how you can truly read a passage with effective Reading Comprehension, for instance; because they provide you with powerful tools to face a question: the Pre-Thinking approach, the Negation Test, the iSWAT choices, the difference between polar opposite and logical opposite, the Variance Analysis, and so many other concepts that help you understand deeply what you are asked; because they have such a good question bank, way better that any other I might have tried, to help you understand the lessons first and master the sections afterwards; because they give you access to practice exams from 800Score and GMATClub, the stepping stones on your way to master the exam, in my opinion.

Form: because they use an online course that is a format significantly more effective than traditional books. Organized intelligently, this course gives you access to related problems, right after a concept is learnt. It is pretty easy to navigate and easier to carry (I do not need to bring my heavy books with me when flying in my work trips). The course does not allow you to keep going if detects that you have not internalized the concepts taught. This gives you the security of not being leaving important stuff behind unwittingly. Besides, each lesson is reinforced with Live Sessions on the weekends, where you not only go over what you have studied, but you also learn some strategic tips to increase your performance when practicing, and can ask all the questions that you have come up with during the week.

I have scheduled my GMAT exams within three weeks from now. My score in my last practice exam, four days ago, was 750. I do not know how well I will perform, but these guys have indeed given me something I lacked before: an enormous confidence on myself and on my knowledge. I will tell you in twenty days…

Good luck to you all.

Hi guys,

I have gone through the gmatclub so many times and now that I have achieved a decent gmat score of 700, I would like to highlight how e-gmat's verbal live prep helped me to achieve this score.

Being a non-native, the skills in the verbal section that are tested in GMAT didn't come naturally to me. I needed a prep course which started off from the basic foundation of grammar. The audio-visual tutorials at E-gmat are effective and intuitive, Had I learnt the same from a text book, I really doubt I could have grasped 50% of the concept.

The E-gmat's course is beautifully designed - one lesson at a time. This was best for a non-native guy like me. In SC section, there are great articles such as verb-ing vs verb-ed modifiers. These articles are really well written and are mostly targeted at sections which create a bit of confusion.

Finally, the scholaranium provides a test-environment where you can practice sections in a timed environment. The results I achieved in the scholaranium were almost similar to what I received in the GMAT. For all those guys who want to improve their score from ~27 to ~40 or above, I would really suggest them to try the E-gmat course.

Hello,
I've been studying for the GMAT for quite some time now. I have taken many courses at different places such as Princeton, Kaplan as well as Manhattan GMAT. I am currently using E-GMAT for my GMAT preparation and founded it outstanding! Here are the reasons:
I am a non-native and thanks to E-GMAT not only I can read, but also I understand what I read. So, I am truly happy because I feel confident that my acquired reading skills will help me succeed at my career at a faster pace. So, you have two benefits. You are getting a skill needed for the GMAT and you're using this skill later on in life. Well.. yes, I have a degree, but when you start answering RC questions, you feel like you need to know how to comprehend the passage in an effective and efficient way. And this I got from E-GMAT Verbal Prep!

The course is organized and it has all subject matters tested on the GMAT as the other courses. But the fact that E-GMAT has the course structured on short modules and summaries at the end each modules, makes it truly easier for your to study. And it is convenient when you are reviewing topics. I love their explanations because the modules explanations have holistic approach explanations. This is beneficial to all students since we all learn in different ways.

You will be amazed when you start doing SC questions as per E-GMAT 3 steps. Oh boy, you wouldn't think understanding the meaning is so crucial and maybe by finding splits on sentences will get you to answer the question. I have not thought of a sentence the way I think of it now. When I read, I can visualize the parts of a sentence and understand the roles of each part. It s feels like if I have total control of the sentence and no matter what correct structure the GMAT test throws at me, I can analyze the correctness of the questions in light of my understanding of the sentence and the structure of the sentence.

There is a lot to say, but I need to say one last thing. I don't know if there are many students out there who expect their teachers to care about them truly learning, but E-GMAT has done a pretty good job in showing they care about you getting the concept well and going to the root of the problem. You can see this on their material preparations and on the E-GMAT Experts responses to the students' questions.

I came across the e-gmat .com randomly while I was looking for online prep course because of no time to go to regular classes due to pressure in work . I tried free trail for 2 days and took full live prep course .

The course content is detailed and good for mainly for Non- Native speakers,
Quant: Content is very good, and best part is practice after every topic where you can know whether you understand the specified topic or not.

Verbal : Content starts from very basic where non-native speaker benefits most. I never thought RC and CR is very easy for me.But, e-gmat provide me very good detailed concept how to approach and how to analyse .

I am getting score improvement of 100 points as of now . But , i am looking for 700+ score . I need to work very hard to get that score . But, i am very happy that e-gmat provides
Scholaranium for practice where 1000+ questions with detailed analysis and OG question list too.

I had given my GMAT more than two years ago (miserable score :(). I had prepared for more than 6 months, exhausting all best resources available. I was scoring in 600-650 range in mocks (Q 47-49 and V 27-30) . However, I scored below 600 in GMAT,scoring 22 in verbal. I thought I was not made for GMAT, since even after preparing from all best courses available I could not score well (especially in verbal). So I left the preparation.

Last year my friend suggested me e-GMAT course based on experience. So I checked its reviews online and opted for Verbal Live Prep course.

I have used just around 50% of its content and I am already scoring 32-34 in verbal. The way e-GMAT has designed the course is mind blowing. Its interactive audio visuals are very helpful and have helped me in improving in very short duration of time.

The reviews on GmatClub about e-GMAT SC are not unfounded. My accuracy in SC has increased from 40% to 80% in a very short time. Also, its prethinking approach in CR has helped to crack most difficult Assumption, Evaluate, Strengthen and Weaken problems.

If you are planning to give GMAT, and looking for drastic improvement in short duration, here's the solution : E-GMAT!

I have reported my old score here.

I will keep you updated about my new GMAT score soon.

Hi Everyone,
First my background:
I am an indian male with not IT background. As all Non native speakers, i lack skills in Verbal, and there fore it became necessary for me to make up majority of my score by boosting the Quant score.
Prep details:
I went though all the OG questions which one cannot compete in quality and as recommended by most Manhattan Quant guides but i still find my confidence lacking to reach the Q 50/51 highs.

Going though various reviews and bringing my over confidence down i decided to go through a structured course which will boost my confidence to achieve the 49-51 range.

I came across e-gmat quant course after reading various positive reviews on different GMAT Prep forums. First of all i was amazed to see the structure of the course which was very handy and easy to go through. You learn concepts then apply quizzes and later Application test and final ability quizzes. You get no reason in egmat course to not master in every single topic tested in the GMAT.
The live sessions with Rajat, Payal and Krishna were not less than an eye opener. i love the new techniques they taught like : analyzing and breaking down the DS question prior to reaching the options, number properties questions were never so easy to solve with the e-gmat techniques and algebra which has always been a night mare for me, I learnt the importance of bringing all the expressions in the left side of the inequality before breaking them down. This has left me stunned because i never messed up with the +_ signs after applying e-gmat principles in algebra. Also the graphical representation of the equations to solve for x is something i never knew.
I have improved already from Q46 to Q49 in my last GMAT exam and now i am preparing again to score Q50-51 in my next attempt.

This time i am focusing on the Quant scholaranium . This is the Custom test platform by egmat where one can select questions of different topics, different difficulty levels and adjust timings. As a result you also get detailed analysis of the timing and your performance and obviously the question explanations. A question bank of 700+ all level and topic questions is grooming my prep further and finally i feel that i can achieve my target score of Q50-51.

I would definitely recommend this course to all GMAT aspirants .

I am taking verbal live prep course of e-gmat. The like the way the study material has been made, especially the interactive concept learning video which is very unique to e-gmat. The study material for all the concepts of SC, CR & RC have their unique way of attempting through several steps. While taking e-gmat verbal live prep package, we also have access to IR concept which no other companies available in market offer.
The scholarium, gmat question bank, helps a lot to cement the concept during application and the solution. With the subscription of verbal live prep you will also get access to quant questions which is sufficient for a person like me (engineering background) to learn and practise quant section.
I will advice the future gmat takers to at-least try e-gmat free lesson and further make their own decision. I also did the same way.

Regards
Deepak

Hello future leaders of the world, I am Shekhar working for the past 6 years and planning to retake my GMAT (earlier score was a mere 640). Like every re-taker - I did my homework well and found out about E-gmat and it's tech based GMAT prep offering. What really works for the product are - 1. Basic structure of the content 2. Detailed analysis 3. You can study anytime. 4. Support - expect a reply within 24-36 hours.

What may not be working
While, the course is good but you really need to push yourself when your cards are down. I have had so many incidents when I skipped my routine as no one is really policing me. Such indiscipline can easily turn skipping one day to many days.

Also, it advertises that you can learn SC in 10 days - it most probably is true for super bright students. It took me 20-25 days easily.

So If you are determined to give GMAT and are fed up of sub par GMAT tutors - E-GMAT could be your night in shining armor. I'll keep you posted about my score here.

Thanks,
Shekhar

Being a non-native, preparation in verbal course was necessary and need of the hour. My friend introduced me to e-GMAT and I cannot thank him enough for having done that. The videos provided by e-GMAT are full of adequate content and provide good practice questions. This course has helped me brush up my concepts very well


EGMAT videos are very detailed, they teach me everything from the basics and hand hold me to apply what i have learned to the verbal questions. The scholarium questions are very useful, i am able to customise my own set of questions and drills on areas that i am weak at. The questions also come with very detailed explanations.
The method of teaching is very good as it first test you on your current knowledge about the concept and then tell you about the concept and ten again test you for the same which help solidifying the concept a great deal. the review option of the attempted question help you to keep logs of the error you have committed.

so over all it is a good course for the people who all are looking for Verbal course but it totally depend upon the person to person to find the course fit for him so do analyse before buying any course .

The verbal live sessions really worth it. The sessions are very well prepared and designed to go deep into core aspects such as pre-thinking or the 3 process step for SC questions
- The strategy sessions tough you how to improve your score and gives you understanding on key things to keep in mind, like takt time

Overall the resource is awesome!!

thanks
