I started my prep by referring to books-Manhattan, Kaplan and more but realised soon that I am going all haywire in my approach. To structure it, I bought this course which after a promotional scheme, came at a very affordable cost. This is really a great course which has video based study modules dissected into different GMAT topics with videos ranging from 3-15 mins. It especially works well for people who are on the go and want to cramp up small study sessions basis the availability of time. You just have to be consistent and you can cover almost entire syllabus within a short period of time.
Quant section is extremely useful with focus being given on understanding the concept and not on just cramming some formulae or rote method of learning.
A word of caution here: this course alone will not take you to great heights of GMAT score. It's a really good course for beginners or for people who have no clue about where to start and are doing there prep all alone. By going through it, you will gain confidence which will allow you to attempt practice Qns from other sources/books and which is extremely important. Couple this course with some more additional resources and you'll be good to go.
Bottomline: Don't think much if you are just starting off...buy it and start learning from Day#1.
Not only the quality and variety of questions included is great but also the analytics which comes with it post taking a test. It has a large database of 700+ questions and in all likelihood, even if you don't get to see the exact question in the real exam, by the time you would have attempted and analyzed the questions available, your mind would have already been trained strenuously to think of different tricks the test makers can put in the exam and this will help you vastly improve your performance.
The best strategy I would advise is to take a 75 min test and spend about 2-3 hrs analyzing each tests. Look from the perspective of timing, concepts knowledge, pacing etc. This way, you will maximize your leaning and your score also which will be a big confidence booster for the real exam.
I will recommend them to any serious test taker and the best part is they are available as a bundle with many other online courses making them really cost effective.
So I joined this course thinking that it'll drastically improve my capabilities for verbal section. While it does teaches you nuances of English grammar along with creating conceptual clarity, the real essence of this course lies in teaching the gmat hacks. The exam is pretty much predictable in terms of what kind of wrong ans choices the creators can put in the exam. egmat has identified all of those pre-hand and have included them in the course. One's job is essentially to internalise these hacks so that when you attempt the real exam, you will be able to spot these errors in a second.
The SC part is the real deal. This will be perhaps the best SC course in the market. For CR, you must complement it with books like PowerScore, Manhattan etc. For RC, you can't do much except from improving your reading skills which will come by practice only.
Ensure that you utiilize the Scholaranium which has a collection of 700+ good quality Verbal questions. It comes with a bit of analytics though I still feel there is a lot of room to grow in terms of improving these features, the analytics bit and overall interface.
It offered few freebies like GMAT Club 6 month access and a 800score.com test series so all in all a real sweet deal!
