Course e-GMAT GMAT Live Prep

I have been fighting with the GMAT prep for a long time now. The first time I decided to think about GMAT was in December 2015. I had some lapse in my project and I wanted to engage my self in something interesting. Also I was feeling stagnated in my career. So the obvious choice for an IT professional with 11 years experience - an International MBA - a move I figured would give my career a push. Anyway getting back to the topic of GMAT, when I read about it and attempted a few questions, I realized that this is a serious exam and needed dedication and good amount of prep but for me personally I needed help as my verbal was very bad and quant was just ok but not where I thought I was at start.
Well since I am a pretty lazy guy, I always need a target before me to help me focus and prep (Well it worked for me for my certification exams.. so figured it was my way for GMAT as well).
I started with an classroom program locally but I soon realized that they are not going to get me there. I practiced hard but some how never managed to go beyond 600 in the mocks and my nemesis as per analysis was SC. So started searching online how can I get better and stumbled upon a free webinar from e-GMAT. I enrolled it instantly and I was blown away with the approach they took and recommended. I immediately decided to try their SC course as I thought if I can fix SC verbal would take care as I was doing decently in CR and RC and Quant was decent as well. Since my GMAT exam was already booked and I was slated to fly out for 2 months just after my exam for business, I decided to take the exam completing only 80% of SC. To my horror my actual GMAT score turned out to be 540 (Q39 V24). I was disappointed and went back home and ordered the ESR from GMAC. When I got my report I found that I had done the best in SC. My SC was way ahead of all other sections in Verbal. That is when I realized how good e-GMAT course was and how it had built my basics. I decided to attend the free CR and Number Properties webinars to check if those modules were taught the same way as SC. Once I attended these sessions, I was pretty convinced that I this course will help me get a good score. I enrolled in Live Prep Classes. The best part is whatever Rajat Sadana says in the intro of the free sessions about e-GMAT course almost all is true (well about the improvement for re-takers will verify once I take again the actual GMAT again) but if proof is needed, I have just finished CR modules of the course due to my hectic work and my basics in these have become so solid that, I am already scoring 640 in my mocks with a V30.. something which I was not able to do so earlier and this has led me to believe that come March next year, I will be ready to take the GMAT challenge head on and score a 700+. Also what e-GMAT offers is a great set of tutors in Rajat, Payal and Neeti (have interacted with only these so far) and there customer support is pretty good (just wish that they can improve the turn around time on queries which sometimes takes longer than expected). All in all I surely recommend anyone like me to surely take the Verbal prep live as it is flexible, thorough and yet affordable and gives you the confidence by helping you focus on the basics and processes that even on tough questions the correct answer just stands out.

I started with an classroom program locally but I soon realized that they are not going to get me there. All my mocks I could not go beyond a V43 and faltering mostly in number properties as my algebra was good though my major issues were in Verbal. So started searching online how can I get better and stumbled upon a free webinar from e-GMAT. I enrolled it instantly and I was blown away with the approach they took and recommended. After trying their SC course and getting the most in my GMAT in the SC section, I decided to attend the free Number Properties webinars to check if Quant was actually also taught the same way as Verbal. To my surprise they had well defined processes for Quant as well and I realized that using their methods I can get my basics really strong and hence my Quant score could go up since I wanted to aim for V50 or V51 so that with a lesser verbal score as well I could make up a good GMAT score. Since I was a fan of the online sessions, I enrolled in Live Prep Classes. So far I was only able to finish the number properties module due to my hectic work schedule and some personal committments but I am able to solve 700+ level questions easily with high Accuracy. This has led me to believe that come March next year, I will be ready to take the GMAT challenge head on and score a 700+ with a V50 or V51 in Quant. Also what e-GMAT offers is a great set of tutors in Rajat, Payal and Neeti (have interacted with only these so far) and there customer support is pretty good (just wish that they can improve the turn around time on queries which sometimes takes longer than expected). All in all I surely recommend anyone like me to surely take the GMAT prep live (included both Live sessions for Verbal & Quant) as it is flexible, thorough and yet affordable.

Scholaranium is a real confidence booster

Before joining the e-GMAT course all I thought was that GMAT is a test of accuracy. However, the Scholaranium product changed my view on this. The great analysis it shows on each of the sections specially the breakdown per difficulty level per sub module type in Quant helps nail down the problematic topic and focus on weak areas. It also gives confidence by highlighting the strong areas. It is an Awesome platform to know exactly where you stand in with your prep and concepts. It helps analyze each question in such depth that even without taking regular mocks I get the confidence that my preparation is right on track.
