Course e-GMAT Verbal Online

Location Online

In first gmat in october 2017, I scored a dismal V23 (overall 590). The score was below par and I knew there was something that went horribly wrong on the D-day, as I was scoring 670-700 in my gmatprep.
After the initial mourning period, I decided to get the ESR and see where the issues were in Verbal. I saw that I got 60% of the questions wrong in the first ten questions. The graph showed that the question level never went above the Medium difficulty leading to the low score. After ESR analysis, I decided to work on verbal and use 'e-gmat' course. The decision to use e-gmat was based on the feedback of other students , plus the fact that I was working full time and didn't had the time to attend any in-person classes . Also, I had used the 'modifier application' section, present in the 'e-gmat' trial version and on the GMAT forum, during the first phase of the study and found the trial version to be of great help. Bought the e-gmat online course and reached out to Rajat/e-gmat team for help. They responded quickly with the steps to be followed.

Before starting with the second phase of the study, I decided to check my verbal ability on e-gmat. The score was 44 percentile. It showed that I had some gaps that had to be filled, before taking second attempt. Over the course of next 2.5 months I religiously followed the e-gmat SC, CR , RC and IR section and saw my verbal ability improve from 44 percentile to 77 percentile, couple of days before second GMAT. SC and CR were the big beneficiary , RC was fluctuating as usual.
During December, My company announced a forced furlough and that was the time, I decided to give the second GMAT. I gave GMAT prep1 repeat (700) and prep 2 (730). then I decided to give my next attempt. In january 2018, I was able to increase my score to 700 score with V38 in verbal.
This wouldn't have been possible with the verbal e-gmat course.

If you are in the same boat as I was, there is no better alternative then e-gmat course.

Best Quant tests online

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by score report [?]

After scoring Q48 in my first GMAT attempt I was looking at some of the tests online to practice quant questions. gmat club tests came free with the e-gmat verbal course and this was the right test series.
I used 3 gmatclub tests before my second attempt but gained quite a bit. Though my quant score didn't improve any further but tricks I learned through these tests were pretty good.
For the third attempt I have used close to 15 gmatclub tests and each one of them has been quite a challenge. The tricks in the question matches with some of the curve ball answers in actual GMAT. Additionally, the difficulty level is on the higher side but tackling higher difficulty questions is a best way to prepare for the actual GMAT.
