Would avoid E-GMAT entirely and stick with TTP for prep and official gmat prep CATs for gauging your score range.
I had the same experience when taking their practice exam as part of the e-GMAT free trial. Before taking the practice exam, it requires you to submit your goal score. Can’t proceed without first inputting your targeted verbal and quant sub section scores. Ambitiously I inputted a near-perfect score (that’s my ultimate goal!) knowing that I’m not there yet. Then, I scored WAY below what I’ve scored historically (past few weeks) from other providers - veritas, economist, and GMATPrep official tests.
I suspect they are motivated to provide you with a lower score than your “target” so you’re incentivized to buy their prep course.
Another theory is that they provide questions solely at the difficulty level that you identify with your target score, so if you insert a very high level then you’ll get much more challenging questions and scoring will be skewed. That’s fine for prep, but if that’s the case they should note that at the outset.
In any case, would avoid these guys and stick with the trusted providers like TTP.

If you're not familiar with Scholaranium, it's a platform by e-gmat to practice questions. It lets you create quizzes (select number of questions, concepts, difficulty level, etc.).
When you're going through OG, you don't know the difficulty level of the questions you're solving. It can be hard to assess what your ability is.
In Scholaranium, you can pretty much track your improvement over different difficulty levels. It's probably the most analytical approach to preparing for GMAT. Also it's quite satisfying to see an upward trend in your graph.
You're going to improve a lot faster through Scholaranium than through OG alone. Time is money, business school aspirants!

Scholaranium - There is a lot of flexibility to create the tests per the revision one wants to do. I really liked the quality of questions in the question bank and their corresponding detailed responses. The timed-test pattern of practice tests allows working on time management skills.
Verbal: The SC and CR questions are apt for getting the practice of actual test. Here also after practicing the individual sections, I practiced a combination of questions and mock tests. I was able to improve my time management through the countdown timer applied to a combination of questions.
Overall e-GMAT scholaranium has been the best GMAT preparation resource I encountered with high quality and quantity material.

Verbal scholaranium is a great testing tool that has given me the confidence to improve my verbal reasoning performance on GMAT. The questions are top quality and the explanations cover the concepts very well in great detail. The dashboard provides a fantastic way to keep track of performance and quickly identify areas of improvement. If you've solved OG and Scholarnaium questions, that's more than enough to ace GMAT verbal be it sub 600 questions or over 700 questions. All sub-sections of Verbal have good questions for practice. The platform allows you to review and analyze performance in depth. I have tried many other tests but e-GMAT's is def the best

I can't thank enough egmat for helping me through my GMAT journey. Being an engineer I thought quant would not be so difficult for me but it was after my first mock test I realized that I have to work equally hard in quant as well as verbal. It was then I purchased egmat Quant and Verbal online course subscription. The course structure is very well planned out. e-Gmat is the most extensive, well designed and comprehensive prep course. I really liked the way concepts are explained with examples and many practice questions after each and every concept to solidify your understanding.
For Quant, the approach they follow is crisp and easy to understand. They never misguide you by providing shorcuts instead they give very helpful strategies to focus on. I completed the course and revised all the concepts explained by them. I did not follow any other material for Quant. Also, scholarinium was so helpful, it provided a variety of question ranging from easy to hard and very hard.
Egmat course has everything you need to crack GMAT. If you have the right amount of determination no one can stop you from achieving your dream. Thanks egmat team for making it possible and making this journey easier for many of us.
Thanks and good luck!!

So I am not a person who gives a review for any product whatsoever,but in this case I would like to provide an honest ad glowing review.
Verbal Scholarium of e-gmat has really helped me in the past when I scored 720,and now when I am preparing myself to try and hit the 750 mark,it is proividing me with confidence of doing.Talking about the the quality of scholarium question,I have nothing but good things to say about it.Having given GMAT once,I can vouch for the quality of questions here .They are of the same nature as one would see in Real GMAT Exam.My one suggestion to effectively use this tool is always solve questions in a time based format,which will kind of get you in the groove for the real thing.So the phrase that is really famous ,I will quote it again here, ''keep Calm and Trust e-gmat " .Thank you e-gmat for creating such a wonderful tool. :)
Hey ! Can you tell me what were scoring on egmat scholarnium in SC / CR individually. I have heard mixed reviews. Some say if you score around 50-60 percent ability on the scholoranium it's considered 90 percentile

I will highly recommend e-GMAT verbal course to every GMAT applicant. The course is designed in such way that you gain enough confidence to answer questions by learning the approach provided in the concept files. The concept files are explained in such a ways that basic to advanced concepts are very easy to grasp. The e-GMAT verbal scholaranium is the best test-taking platform to understand the level of concept clarity one has for GMAT verbal. The key features of the e-GMAT verbal scholaranium are:
• Dashboard – It helps you understand the exact concepts in which you need to improve upon
• Bookmark questions- It helps you revisit questions for revision
• The tests are no short of the actual GMAT experience
• The tests can be customized according to the need of the user
Overall, I highly recommend this course. The course will ensure score improvement for all the non-native speakers.

Being a non native verbal has been my biggest issue since the day I have started preparing for the GMAT. I started my prep for GMAT in 2015 and since then have given the test three time and scored 520,590 and 530 respectively. After the last exam I was exhausted and frustrated wondering what should I do now when all the material OG2017,Aristotle and Manhattan guides have not been enough.
After some thought and job changing in September 2017. I wanted to start again afresh for the GMAT so I started searching online for courses for non native. Finally my search ended when I went through a webinar of critical reasoning by E-Gmat. Just after that I again solved some question on that very day of critical reasoning and I was surprised with myself. The question understanding and pre-thinking came naturally. Even though the question if marked incorrectly I was clear of argument and could eliminate some question not on guesswork but understanding.
I thought to myself that if 1 hour of webinar could have such impact what wonder I could do if the attended the full course.
As a result after 3-4 month the verbal Scholaranium which has a good mix of section wise question my accuracy improved from 20% to 85% in CR. The E-gmat SC process is such that even the toughest question can be broken down easily and given the spread of question in SC Scholaranium we can asses our strength and weakness section wise. Regarding the RC section the best part was that passages are not divived by short or long but by types of passages ex.humanities.
The Scholaranium has another beneficial thing the skill data where we can asses our weakness and strength across various things like for RC is main idea questions are my strength and inference my weakness spread across easy, medium and hard question.
With all these tool I now have a better understanding of the verbal section.

e-GMAT has been my companion through out my GMAT journey. As a typical engineering graduate, my strongest part always is quant and verbal is my Achilles' heel. I attended some class room courses but I did not find any help. Their teaching was not from basics and was at very high level or superficial. I was at the same level at the end of the classes as I was at the beginning. That is when I researched on gmat club and found many reviews for e-GMAT as best course for non-natives.
I thought of giving a try and started with their sample videos and scholaranium. I liked the way they turned verbal like quant. Every concept was broken into smaller and easily digestible chunks which is very helpful for working professionals. I immediately bought online course.
Once I finished the course, I started with scholaranium which is a huge pool of questions. Apart from the explanations, the stats are so good that you can track your performance, right after the each test. Sophisticated stats gives snapshot of week and strong areas. That helped me concentrate more on my week areas. Explanations are exceptional where they touch minute detail and if something is not clear, forum support is very good.
I have my GMAT on 31st July. Hope this preparation helps me achieve my dream score. Finally, e-GMAT scholaranium is worth every penny!!

Features of Scholoranium platform that are most helpful are section wise split of your strengths and weaknesses . In general the hard questions are a bit harder than the GMAT hard questions . In RC , performance is computed based on the subject of the passage. This helps in preparing more in a specific subject . Ability Quizzes are god in predicting your capability . However the questions which you do not attempt are also considered as incorrect and are added to dashboard incorrect questions . This is a wrong indication as this is a timing mistake and not that you are weak in an area
