I recently gave my GMAT and scored a decent 740 ( Q50, V39, IR: 6, AWA: 6). Although, I could have done better but I must say that this score wouldn't have been possible without e-gmat great verbal sessions.
I started my preparation back in October 2015 in a similar manner as any GMAT aspirant would. I took up the Manhattan guides for the Verbal section and went through each of them properly. Following this, I gave my 1st GMAT Prep exam and scored a 740. I was happy and thought I was ready to take the exam. I had bought a KAPLAN guide for practice and their tests. I decided to give a few before making an appointment for GMAT. I scored a dismal 670 in my first test and after analysis of the same, I realised that I had got only superficial knowledge in Verbal section. I went online to review a full courses and ended up taking e-gmat Verbal online. Believe me, but that was one of the best decisions that I made in my GMAT journey. Their courses are very thorough and the supplementing articles are very informative. Their approach to understand the meaning first of any stem was essential and it proved very useful.
Their approach towards SC and CR was really very useful and although I think I could have scored much better, this score wouldn't have been possible without the kind of resources that e-gmat provided.
NOTE : Scholaranium is a very helpful tool to identify your weak areas and then target them.It is a very good tool for practice and improvement and it did help me a lot in some type of CR questions.
Kudos to you guys!

The concept files are explained in such a ways that basic to advanced concepts are very easy to grasp.

• 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
7 was not my favorite number until I thought of writing GMAT. I was very skeptic about my success in the journey, because I grew up in an environment where English was scarce as a language. Moreover, I was not an avid reader, and I had least interest in reading novels or periodicals. Having said so, Verbal part was always a nightmare for me. Apart from this, I was also average in quant, but I knew I could improve in quant with practice, which will tune me to avoid calculation and conceptual mistakes.
It was my second attempt (14.01.2018) in which I scored 730. In my first attempt (31.10.2017) I scored 700 (Q50, V35). I knew that 700 is a decent score, but it’s prudent try for higher score if you feel there is some room for improvement.
While preparing for the test, even after seeing the explanations several times, I still had a lot of doubts on SCs. Then, I came to know about “EGMAT” from gmatclub. I got some pdf files of Egmat on SC topics, and after going through the notes, I could clear all my doubts pertaining to SC. I really appreciate Egmat for so clear explanation of concepts and the approach to solve 700+ Sc questions. I don’t think I could have got a better guidance related to SC from any other source than Egmat. One important thing to note is that SC is the only part in Verbal in which you can achieve maximum improvement. So, before my second attempt I purchased Verbal Scholarium from Egmat, because I had exhausted all my sources of practice and a time bound practice can give me the jump I require in Verbal. The Egmat Scholarium is really nice for practicing to avoid similar mistakes and improve your pace. The major problem I was facing in Verbal was timing. Practicing from different sources I could somewhat improve my pacing, but not up to the level required by GMAT. The question levels simulate well with the question levels of real GMAT and practicing these tests, I could not only improve my speed further, but also focus on the similar mistakes I used to commit because of traps in GMAT questions.
The verbal Scholaranium is one of the best resources available for gmat club. The scholaranium is a huge question bank with lots of questions. Infact you can create your own tests set your own time though they give an approx indication of the time limit for that many number of questions. The questions are divided into hard , medium and easy. Hard questions are challenging and are a must for someone targeting a high score of 40+. Egmat made me score a 40 and also the explanation provided is super amazing. There will always be someone to answer your queries and clear all your doubts. Karishma will always help you with your doubts. The sentence correction is the best part of egmat verbal scholaranium and is a must for non native speakers
I gave my first GMAT in Dec16 and scored 620 with a verbal score od 24 which was very disappointing. After asking my seniors, I got the advice of enrolling for E-gmat verbal online course. Verbal Scholaranium was a part of this course fortunately.
The verbal Scholaranium is a tool which lets you customize your tests in terms of type of question (SC/CR/RC), number of questions and the difficulty level of questions.
After I was confident with my verbal prep, I started using Verbal Scholaranium and I realized I still need to improve in some areas.
You can have mix of everything (type, number of Qs and difficulty) or totally specific ( e.g. 30 SC hard questions).
The database of the questions is huge and they do not get repeated. In fact they have a separate option if we want to repeat the questions.
After practicing extensively on scholaranium, I gave my GMAT in Aug 17 and scored 94 percentile (V41).
I believe it's a very good test for those who are getting consistent bad scores in verbal.
e-GMAT Verbal Scholaranium is one of the best test for practicing and improving Verbal ability. It has two types of Test: Ability Tests and Custom Quiz. Ability Tests is a timed tests which has a mix of questions from all level of questions while Custom Quiz, as the names suggests, is a customisable testing type.
The quality of questions in e-GMAT Verbal Scholaranium is very good and the best part is that the explanation of all the questions is consistent with that of GMAT Verbal Online course.
Custom Quiz is unique in its own way as it allows you to even select the sub-topics from each of RC, SC & CR. So, for e.g., if you want to practice only Verbs in SC, then you can select the same in Custom Quiz and practice it. This is very helpful as it lets you to focus on your weaker section more.
I definitely recommend e-GMAT Verbal Scholaranium to everyone as it has really helped me in improving my score.
