I'm a non-native English speaker. I have took other prep courses, but what they really teach you is how to answer a problem. Given the time constraint and competitiveness, how to solve a problem is not the only thing you needed, you need some tricks to get ahead of others. It's like any other game that you play. If you just know how to play a game, only that doesn't get you anywhere, but you also need to know how to tackle it wisely. That's exactly what EMPower teaches you. It's really worth it. It doesn't matter what prep course you follow; this is a must for you if you want to learn some tricks and tips. It's worth every penny.
First of all, verbal itself is so hard to crack in the Gmat. Secondly, being a non-native, I felt it even harder to crack. I tried a couple of books before I even start studying the E-gmat, but none of those books were helping me to reach the score that I wanted to. In fact, not even half way there to my target score. My target score is 720. My friend happened to recommend me to E-gmat. Then, I started researching a little bit about it. All the reviews were either 5 or 4 with the E-gmat. I was so excited that there is an institution that tailored the course exactly for my needs that I did not even bother to attend a demo, and I paid for the full subscription for Verbal Live (E-gmat’s premium subscription).
The course usually has video sessions that you can watch them whenever you want to. That’s the main and nice thing about it. After each video session(Sub-category) is followed with a few examples to make sure that you learned it right. Not only that, once you covered with the whole category, you will have multiple test to take and see the scale right there, and you will all levels of questions. I realized that I had learnt nothing when I started my preparation with the two books initially. I got to tell you, I hardly was able to get 50% questions right before e-gmat. After e-gmat, I’m now able to make 70% of the questions right and sometimes even 80%. It’s worth every penny. Every week, they have a couple of video sessions that are thought by live instructors for every section. I really enjoyed studying with the e-gmat material and solving questions from Scholoranium. That’s another great tool. The question quslity is top-notch. The instructors assist you with any questions that you may have on any subject matter. I can’t recommend e-gmat enough. E-gmat is the go-to place for all your Verbal GMAT needs.
I have recently used Applicant Lab's services for my application process. We all are aware how much a normal admission consultant would charge - at least a couple grand. Unlike a normal consultant, Applicant Lab charges just a fraction of it and actually guides you to prepare your application process, this whole process actually a good experience or a good introspective session that one needs. Maria would help you if you are stuck anywhere, provide you good insight on what actually the Ad Com looks for, help you tailor-make the essays and responses for different questions that they might ask and train you for interview. Overall, I would highly recommend their tool and the process it lets you go through. Trust me it's value every buck you pay for.
