My greatest weakness was comprehending a long and complex sentence correctly in verbal.
Master comprehension module helped me a lot to comprehend the meaning of a complex sentence .
SC,CR, and RC module are designed beautifully to make your base strong .
The concepts taught in these videos were very helpful not only to clear very basic doubts but also to tackle difficult questions.
I used to make notes while going through SC,CR, and RC module. And it helped me a lot during revision.
Verbal scholaranium is no doubt a great platform to know the ability.
The questions are too good in the verbal scholarinium.
I used the verbal forum in the later part of my preparation. It is really a nice platform to clarify very silly to tricky doubts.
I wrote my GMAT exam on 18th dec 2018. Since my target score is 730, I am planning to write the exam again to get 700 plus score sticking to my e-gmat verbal preparation.

The kind of clarity that the live prep of e-GMAT provided was outstanding and it helped to a large extent. The sessions, each lasting from 90-120 minutes, provide an excellent opportunity to strengthen the basics. When I started, SC was more about trying to look for errors right away without trying to understand the meaning of the sentence- Live prep helped me to a large extent with this aspect. Apart from that, the trainers were really professional and were able to clarify all the queries on time. Its probably one of the best verbal courses for GMAT on the market.

since I am from engineering background I thought that quant in gmat will be a cake walk for me.But situation was different.When I gave my first mock my quant score was Q42.It was way below my expectation.I searched a lot about where can I get good quant course.Trust me guys egmat quant live course is the best course I came across.The key features of the course is the method used to explain each and every topic is in very interactive manner.I never felt bored of any topic while studying from egmat.There is sectional topic wise quiz after each topic which helped me solidify the concepts.
The most important thing that had significant impact in my preparation was As an expert tool and live session.from doubts of other students I learned a lot.Whenever I had a doubt any topic I always got expert advice which helped me to clear my doubts.The quiz format for solving questions also give the ambience real test which helped me to improve timing.
The other high light , live session is a must attend for every student who is aiming a good quant score.In the live session they helped me solve the questions in a step by step aproach.which improved my accuracy tremendously.Also live sessions taught me the process to follow while solving 700 level approach.While attending live session I had experience of sitting in a classroom with other students.Thats how interactive it is.The scholaranium helped my findout my weakness and helped me to fine tune my preparation
After attending quant live course my quant score improved tremendously and it improved to 49.A big thanks to egmat for that.Egmat became my best friend during my gmat journey.
Egmat quant live course is a must for every gmat aspirant.I highly recommend it all the gmat aspirants.You will love the preparation once you start learning through Egmat.

The quant live prep course offered by e gmat is amazing as far as your prep for the GMAT is concerned. This course is divided into several modules and each and every module presents the detailed explanation of the concepts right from the beginners level to the advance level. The concepts are presented in very effective manner and further transform your preparation into an exciting journey.
The Scholaranium itself covers the wide pool of questions with detailed analysis that are must to do for the complete preparation of the GMAT.
Explanation offered against each question is quite an effective one.
Overall I would highly recommend this course to any aspirant.

I liked using the scholaranium. it is a good testing platform which gives actionable insights to the user. It has a dashboard which tells the user his/her ability and accuracy level in each section as well as sub topic within a section. User has option to take Verbal ability quizzes to assess which areas he/she is weak at. Based on this analysis he can study the course content and then take custom quizzes to improve on weak areas. This methodical approach leads to measurable score improvement.

In addition I would like to highlight that the course content is interactive and fun to do. it has pre and post assessment quizzes. You can skip the course content if you are confident of your ability for a particular topic. There is another feature I liked. The video modules have a menu option for easy navigation. For many of the topics I could use this feature and directly go to summary slide to quickly grasp concepts due to lack of time.
I also liked the GMAT score planner. This allows user to provide his target score and current abilities in quant and verbal. Based on this, the planner suggests how much we need to score in both quant and verbal to achieve our target score. It goes one level deeper and tells us what ability/skill we need to develop in sc, cr and rc as well. This guides us on how much time we need to invest in each section. Overall, very useful course for methodically tracking progress and improving concepts.

Hello,

I am an Indonesian -born, management consultant based in Southeast Asia. I have been benefit by e-GMAT courses, especially on verbal section. English is definitely not my mother tongue nor my primary academic language. I self-taught myself English and now work using English as primary command.

I work busy hours, sometimes on weekends. While my quant is fine (with a bit of brush up on conceptual required), that was not the case with my verbal section. I struggled to receive the fact that in my mock, I was only able to score V25 (~41 percentile).

A little over a year ago, a fellow consultant at the firm introduced me to e-GMAT and told me that this course is specialized for non-native. It took me few other months to eventually subscribe to e-GMAT verbal live package.

e-GMAT courses have helped me to improve my Verbal from V25 to V42 in less than 3 months. I obviously had to clear my weekends to commit myself in the process. All I do was to meticulously follow each section of the plan. I know that my weakest area are RC and followed by idioms in SC. So I focused on those areas.

For me the most important highlights is(and I could not stress it more): "Understand the Meaning". I will invest my first few secs in a given verbal question , just to understand the meaning and not rushing into the answer choices., e-GMAT taught me to do this.

If there's ever any other fellow non-natives, management consultant out there (or anybody), with questions regarding this post - feel free to drop me a messsage

I am a non native GMAT aspirant who has an art background and weak in both the section of gmat. i started my gmat preparation 8 months back. I remember i used to struggle a lot in verbal section, be it sentence correction , critical reasoning or RC ;all used to give me hard time. It made me lose hope for a good score in GMAT exam. I didn’t know how i should improve my knowledge in both the section especially for verbal. I never used to pick right answer for right reasons and always believe in those options which sounded correct to my ears and wasn't bothered about subject verb, modifiers, idioms etc.i referred many books with thousands of grammar rules which was impossible for me to remember. Same with Quant books, many formulae and concepts.i wasn’t sure what to read and what not. I couldn’t filter myself .
Luckily i shared this problem to one my friend ,he suggested to join Egmat. I searched about it and went through the trial videos and some other. I found it best suitable for me. As it audio video option helped me to understand the concepts well. i joined the EGMAT-live prep course. Which consist both verbal and quant sections.The course is very comprehensive and holistic in nature.The concepts are taught in a very simplistic manner and the quizzes are very helpful to understand how the concepts are tested.
when i compare the results of no. Of questions i used to correct during the initial time of preparation and today, there is a huge difference. I have improved a lot.
The best part of the program is the Scholaranium. It has question ranging from easy to hard topic and one can easily refresh the entire course through them.Further ,it helps one to understand one's strength and weakness.
I am Planning to take my GMAT test after weeks and i hope i would score my target score.

I would like to thank Egmat and its team and hopefully these concepts learned from e-gmat will help achieving my target score .
I Would Definitely Recommend E GMAT live prep Course to anyone who is non native and looking to improve his GMAT score.
Thanks,
Lok

The Quant Live prep course offered by e-GMAT is phenomenal. I was struggling to get beyond Q35 when I started preparing for the GMAT with MGMAT books. This, by no means is a reflection on the quality of the MGMAT books. They are good and detailed. But for me, an interactive prep course was more suitable for my learning style. So after seeing a lots of positive reviews about e-GMAT‘s verbal live prep course on the GMAT club, I decided to sign up for their complete GMAT live prep course (includes both Verbal and Quant).
So they breakdown the quant section into 5 topics (N.P., Algebra, Geometry, Word Problems, and Advances quant) and further in sub topics. Every sub topic starts with a diagnostic test and then you complete a concept video which will develop your basics. Then you take an application quiz and answer OG questions related to the sub topics. After that you get to attend their live online sessions, which are structured very well. In live online sessions, the instructors will walk you through on how to apply the concepts you have learnt to 700 level questions. The live sessions are very detailed and you will learn to answer 700 level questions. In short, the e-GMAT course starts with basic level concepts and then builds up from there to help you to answer 700 level questions. Their method can at times be time consuming and give you a sense of feeling that you will fall behind time, but time is one thing that will improve practice.

I struggled with Number Properties and had a very hard time answering 600 levels questions, especially data sufficiency questions. But with e-GMAT prep, I was able to strengthen my core concepts, which eventually helped to get to Q44.
I would highly recommend e-GMAT course to anyone, no matter what stage you are in your GMAT prep. They allow you to review some of their concept files for free and also let you attend couple of live sessions (I believe Number Properties 1 and Algebra) for free as well. You won’t regret it!

Krishna was a fabulous professor, who was extremely patient to understand and explain all of your doubts during the course.

I am a 2nd time retaker & about to give my test in next month. I feel e-gmat online veb prep is the best verbal course for anyone who are about to start their preparations. I have started with SC and the videos are amazing. They are simple enough,the course teaches you the logic of these questions based on the meaning of each. Each concepts has been explained well and every video is followed by a post assessment quiz, which immediately tells you your level of understanding. In CR strategies such as pre thinking and understanding the argument well drawing a logical structure is the key to mastering CR. Regarding RC I just started the first module & already liking it. Overall I would say e-gmat is a best online prep course & I would highly recommend it.

My GMAT preparation began in Feb-17. I had already taken the GMAT in Sep-14 and scored a mere 620 - Q50 V25. Never in my mocks had I crossed a V27. I had read all the manhattan books multiple times and I was confident that my Sentence correction was strong. However, in the actual exam the level of questions was way harder than I had anticipated. I scored a mere V20 on the Verbal section for SC.

Then I read a review about e-GMAT and gave it a try. After watching the first 3-4 Video lectures, I was in love with the content. I could grasp the content much quicker and the content stayed longer in my head because of the Visual effects created by the company. I went through the recordings multiple times and solidified my concepts. The best part I liked about the course was the entire structure of the program. The course has various files such as concept files, application files and quiz files. This helps to solidify concepts even further. Lastly, after completing the pre-requisites, I attended the Live Sessions.

The Live sessions were extremely well organized, with questions covering various concepts. Moreover, the instructors are extremely patient and hats off to all of you to answer some of the most basic questions. The best part about the instructors is that they don't give out the answers too easily. They make you think, which aids to understand even better.

So after completing my SC section, I improved from a V20 to a V30 on my Sentence correction. I started solving the questions based on Sentence structure. I then moved on to my CR and RC sections. Having studied the Sentence Correction course, my reading improved drastically. I could understand the various pieces in a convoluted RC passage. The company uses "Verb-ing" and "Verb-ed" instead of the Traditional terms such as Gerunds/Infinitive/Appositive Clauses etc. This is key to remembering what each term is. Again, hats off to a well designed course and coming up with such easy to understand names.

Now without digressing any further, I took my first attempt in July -17. I got a 640 - Q49 v29. That's a 4 point improvement right off the bat. I was dejected and thought to give one more attempt. I went through all the files again and took another attempt in Sep-17. I scored a Q49 V32 - 670. I was delighted with the score because this was the first time I breached the V30 mark. I attribute this section largely to e-gmat. However, I hadn't done Scholarinium yet. I plan to take one more attempt in Oct-17 and practice on Scholarinium. I believe I can reach a v35.

In sum, had it not have been to e-gmat, I would always be lingering in the mid - 20s on my verbal section. This course provided me with a new path that the GMAT verbal is crack able. Persistence is the key and approach is necessary.

I hope you all give this course a whirl and see for yourself the improved self confidence you shall face while taking the actual exam.
