I took the course in January but started preparing for GMAT in the month of March. Just before starting my prep I took a mock test and scored 600. being a non-native and an engineer, I wanted to score as much as possible in my quant section.
I started going through the online prep videos and was really impressed with the method of teaching.
One thing that I really liked was that the OG questions were divided and provided in each section.
The Scholaranium is also a pretty good tool, providing good graphic displays and ways to track your performance.
In a nutshell, e-Gmat is amazing and following the course step-by-step will certainly help in achieving good score.

Hello everyone. I am here today to share my ongoing GMAT preparation experience with Egmat. I got to know about Egmat through GMAT Club. I particularly liked the way in which information and resources are presented on the site, and I was convinced within minutes to sign up for its verbal course. Egmat is helping me in providing me all the necessary concepts and strategies to be confident with my GMAT preparation. As we all know our success entirely depends on how much time we have on your hands to invest in the goal, but for me it all boils down to how effectively we use our time. From the get-go, I focused mostly on the verbal and started with the absolute basics. Within a couple of weeks things looked better and topics started making sense to me. Earlier I always get the cold feet with the verbal question during the mock, but later I started getting the gut feeling that I know this question.
One strategy I am following diligently in SC that first understand the meaning.In any scenario, I will not look the options before analyzing the original sentence. Similarly, in CR my first stand will be to identify the conclusion and connect it with other pieces in the argument. For RC I am just following the read and solve approach. The video lessons on Egmat are pretty helpful on this count. I am very grateful to Shradhha, Payal, Krishna and Neeti for helping me out with my doubts. Thank you Team

This was my first attempt in GMAT. When I gave my first mock after a month of self study, I scored 610 Q49 V 26. I was somewhat happy with the quant score, but the verbal score gave me a real jolt. I searched for some online courses in GC and based on e-GMAT's rating and review, decided to give it a try. I never regretted that decision. The structured learning pedagogy of e-GMAT right from the basics helped me learn grammar and master reasoning.
There are many students in India, who fear the verbal section, I was one of them. After completing e-GMAT's VLP I felt confident and was to eliminate wrong answers on valid grounds. I would surely recommend this course to anyone who has lived in an environment, where English is sparsely used.
The scholaranium helps you to identify your weakness and gives you opportunity to practice more and track your progress. Krishna Sir and Shraddha Ma'm have provided detailed solutions to all the doubts asked. I learnt a lot from those explanations.
e-GMAT profoundly helped me in improving my verbal score to V38 . I thank e-GMAT team for creating such a wonderful learning platform.

I prepared for CAT, but I could not succeed. With experience of standardized test, CAT, I started preparing for GMAT. I was naturally good at quant, but verbal was my weak spot. This fact was established once again when I took the GMAT Prep test. I got Q49 and V28. I started practising questions from OG and thought that I would improve. SC was a big concern for me. I was relatively better in CR and RC was an area in which I was inconsistent. Nonetheless, with half preparation, I appeared for GMAT and scored 640 (Q49 V27).

I realized that I lack the process to approach the problems and in real GMAT, I struggled with timing. Then, I came across e-GMAT; on GC, I read very good reviews about this course and how useful it had proved to be especially for non-natives. I signed up for Verbal Live Prep, and completed the course diligently.

- SC course is really helpful! The explanations of every single OG question is detailed and helped me understand why a particular answer is right. 3-step process to reach the right answer became my habit.
- CR course is good as well. Rajat’s pre-thinking approach helped a lot. Initially, I struggled with pre-thinking approach. But, over a period of time and with practice, I started pre-thinking and could cut down on time to answer a CR question.
- RC: I started using Payal’s strategy of understanding the meaning and essence of each para. I started ignoring the tough words and focused on understanding the gist of the sentence.

In Real GMAT, I could score 700 (Q48 V37).

If you are reading this post of mine, I might strongly assume that you are aspiring to take the GMAT exam & indeed hoping to crack it. Before you start reading this , let me tell you, confusion regarding how to start, which course to take is natural, but if you are confused whether to take the e-GMAT Verbal course, don't be any more --you are at the right place. I had been in your shoes 6 months back when I joined e-GMAT. After a lot of struggle, finally I had made up my mind to take the GMAT exam within 2 months. My target was a score of 760 so that I can apply & get selected in Stanford last round this year itself (after all, what's wrong in dreaming) After doing a lot of research, taking suggestions from friends & colleagues & going through the reviews at GMAT club & across the Internet, I managed to confuse myself to the best of my abilities regarding which course to register for - e-GMAT or GMAT-pill. I got few negative feedback as well which only succeeded in adding to my confusion. After pondering for 2 days, I decided to attend my first e-GMAT free live session. The session was on CR Pre-thinking & absolutely clean bowled was I! Approx. 150 plus students had joined the session & I was amused by the way each & every questions were handled by the e-GMAT teachers. I believe that it was a life-changer for me as it made me take one of the most important decisions of my life --buying the e-GMAT Verbal Live Prep course (the dream began to take shape!).
The very first thing I would like to mention regarding the Verbal Live Prep (there's also another Verbal course called Verbal Online) is that the content is huge -- and as they rightly claim - You don't need any other resource. Honestly, if you complete the course, study materials & attend the live classes & religiously follow all the instructions regarding studying & application & attending OG questions, you really DO NOT need any other resource. Atleast, I didn't.
The CR classes are mind-blowing, all the teachers are amazingly student-friendly, especially Shradhha is awesome. When Shraddha taught, she never looked at the watch and would continue to explain until all portions were crystal clear. She exceeded the time limit of 2 hours each time and each of her classes were outstanding. This If you are starting afresh for the GMAT journey, these live sessions really get you on track. The SC course is amazing as well; however my score has been a bit less in this section since I was unable to imbibe the process of breaking a sentence into its clauses & following the subject-verb agreement, meaning analysis rules in those chunks. It was taking me a lot of time to internalize the process & as I was in a hurry to take the GMAT exam to be able to apply by March, I decided to skip that method. I believe my score of 38 in Verbal is due to this issue.
The RC course is also quite good & together with the live classes & proper step-by-step guidance to solve the OG questions(video solutions to OG questions), the Verbal Live prep is sensational. I took the Official GMATPrep tests and scored 720 in each of them. Finally, I took my GMAT in March 2016 after studying for around 2 months & scored 720. I researched a lot regarding application to top B-schools with this score & also discussed with a Consultant, who has suggested me to improve my score to a 760 in order to dream BIG. When I informed e-GMAT regarding this & said that I am planning to take the GMAT exam again soon & requested them to extend my course, Rajat has promised me to extend the course for 3 months free of cost. In today's age of cut-throat commercialization, I was pleasantly surprised to see such friendly & non-commercial approach, where the extension was not charged for.
I strongly recommend this e-GMAT Verbal Live Prep course to anybody who wants to conquer the GMAT. Last but not the least, one thing I would like to mention regarding the 4 point score improvement guarantee of e-GMAT. Since I started preparation, I had been scoring approx. 32 to 34 in all the mock tests & practice quiz. However, once I completed the e-GMAT course, my Verbal score has improved to 38 in the actual GMAT exam. In fact, I had scored 38 and 40 in verbal in GMATPrep1 and GMATPrep2 respectively. I strongly believe that next time when I will be taking the GMAT again, if I can follow the e-GMAT techniques religiously, I will definitely be able to score 42+ in Verbal which will definitely help a lot in transforming my dream of getting into an elite business school into reality. I will definitely come back with another post after the re-take to inform if I did succeed and that day, my review will be a lengthier one, that's for sure! Stay tuned & all the very best!:-)

I am a Non Native and like majority of the Nonnatives I was also struggling with my Verbal section of GMAT, 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 was always struggling to pick correct answer, then one day my friend suggested me to go through E-gmat videos and I was awestruck with their approach, I liked their 3 step process - (Analysis of Meaning, Sentence Structure, Options Analysis), their unique way of breaking the complex sentence into small parts suddenly allows you to see small details like subjects, verbs, modifiers, parallel components, etc.
E-gmat Verbal online course with live prep course is great, the beauty about live prep is that if somehow you have missed the live course you can always visit the recordings and ask your doubts from experts.I would definitely recommend the verbal online course along with Live-prep course especially for the nonnatives.

E-gmat Scholaranium is the best software to test your ability, gauge your progress and learn the concepts specially of moderate and hard level questions for all the topics.Their collection of questions is really good and the answer explanations are very elaborate and precise. Moreover the software gauges your ability and average response time(TAKT time) really well.According to me it is a MUST DO!!!!! I have tried several other prep companies but none is as good as this one both in terms of content and analysis. All the best to everyone taking the GMAT. Hope you will do well and E-gmat will play an important role in your journey.

Quant live prep proved very very helpful in improving by basics. Gmat quant never asks you questions involving surface knowledge. It requires you questions on the most basic of things which we tend to ignore. Quant Scholaranium gives you vast number of questions to practice and provides you the analysis to improve your skills and take your confidence to another level. I also liked the instructors. They are very helpful. Their explanations are crisp and easy to understand. I would definitely recommend the candidates to go for Quant live prep. It is simply a must own prep resource . All the best !

After scoring a dismal 680, I purchased the verbal live prep from e-GMAT, mainly to improve my verbal. I used to stumble in SCs and CRs. the course content is lucid and is ver easy to understand. The step-by-step framework to solve the SC drastically improved my skills and confidence in solving SCs, and it improved my RCs as well. I would especially like to talk about Scholaranium. It is the single most comprehensive practice resource I have ever come across. There are so many questions to practice, and there is so much analytics involved. It provided me all the analysis needed to improve my skills. I think verbal live prep is a must own for every non-native speaker. The instructors are prompt and helpful.

I am writing this review in the middle of my GMAT preparation.
I had some personal problems because of which I was unable to write my GMAT but am going to give within 60 days.
My only intention is to help out students( read strugglers) who are not able to decide which course to take.
A little bit about myself first : I am an engineering graduate from India and have been working for the past 7 years. Getting an MBA has been a long time goal for me ever since I passed out of college.
I started my GMAT preparation some 3 years ago. I was very confused which course to take or which books to study. I consulted a few of my friends and relatives who had appeared for GMAT in the past and everyone gave a different advice.
Like most of the people I trusted them and ended up purchasing a different MBA prep book everytime. Despite studying hard it was very difficult for me to choose the right answer. I always ended up in the 'best two' options and 'unluckily' or whatever someone may call it selected the wrong one atlast.
After having spent a lot of time in preparing, I decided to go for the real GMAT and got a very poor score(650).
I knew it was not at all sufficient to get me into a good b school.
One fine day I was going through a review in a local MBA blog about e-gmat and their course material specially designed for non natives. At first I thought it would be another gmat prep. trying to make money and hence using a different marketing strategy.
Later on I saw lots of reviews some of which were very similar to my own preparation methods.
I attended one of their free webinars during a weekend and liked their way of teaching.
I finally decided to write them an email asking in detail about their course and fee structure and everything.
They gave me an option of full refund if I donot like the course material within 10 days of purchasing.
As I started going through their material, I found them quite easy to understand and very interactive. It was very similar to an offline tutor.
I have read every available GMAT prep. book and not a single book was able to make the grammar concept so clear as e gmat did.
Also, the way the course is designed, it maintains a very medium pace, making sure the student understands every bit of it.
It has not only taught me all the good things to do in the real GMAT but also the bad things to avoid.
Today having spend a brief amount of time with their course I can say it with full confidence that this is no doubt the best online material for verbal preparation.
I gave a mock test last week and saw a 50 point increase in my overall GMAT score !
Now I am very confident that I will surely score better than what I did last time.
However I still want to improve further and thats why giving myself some more time.
My very honest recommendation to all non native English speakers is to take up this course and your verbal scores will increase for sure.
The tutors are very promt in clearing all your doubts.
My special thanks to Rajat, Payal and Shraddha.
If someone has any doubts then feel free to reach out to me.

regards
Hitesh
