650 Q44 V36
I have been studying for the GMAT for some time now. Early on my GMAT studies, I thought that the verbal section will not impose any problems. I thought that my English language competency is enough to get me through. I was in for a big surprise when I got v17! For the SC section, the answer choices all looked close and valid. For the CR section, I had no clue what I should be looking for and for the RC section, I was lost in a maze of boring texts. I kept on searching for a course that could best help me improve my verbal understanding and after a bad experience with another company, I realized the value of a course designed for non-natives. Reading the reviews of non-native students who aced the GMAT verbal through following e-gmat process made me realize that this could be the course for me. What made purchasing e-gmat Verbal Live Prep a must was attending one SC and one RC free sessions. I recommend anyone who is keen on improving their verbal to check out these sessions. Though free of charge, they are worth their value in gold. Rajat and Payal are stellar instructors who know how to simplify the process and how one should approach each question type. The online course material are engaging and simple. Each video addresses a core functional area and is backed up with a follow up quiz to test your performance. The course also offers a set of must read articles that discuss key high level concepts.
It might also be worth mentioning is the level of world class customer service you receive from e-gmat. Whenever you have a question, just email them and you will definitely get a response - most often within hours of your email/post. For someone who improve from the poor v17 to consistently hitting 32-34 mark in verbal and who is looking to score around 40, I read a lot about how the scholaraniam tool offered by e-gmat helped others boost their scores. The tool is a pretty nifty one. It helps one focus on one’s ability and calculates one’s TAKT time – two key concepts that Rajat addresses in his strategy session 2. For me, reviews like this one http://gmatclub.com/forum/470-to-740-reward-of-persistence-and-hardwork-191587.html#p1468404 is a living testament that e-gmat process works.
Anyways, right now my focus would be to utilize scholarinum to achieve my target score. Will keep you posted on my actual score after I take the test in a month time :)

Leveraging a number of resources/courses/practice material during my verbal preparation, I have to say the Scholaranium provides a unique and in-depth insight on areas of weakness and which areas I needed to focus on to improve my score. For someone who has spent a lot of money on preparation material, Scholaranium and e-gmat verbal course provide a great value for money. The power of Scholaranium comes from the information I received regarding my TAKT time, exactly which section (CR, RC or SC) is jeopardizing my score and most importantly which areas within the section that I need to work on (i.e. evaluation questions in CR, modifiers in SC or spending more/less than my average TAKT time). Prior to using Scholaranium, my verbal score fluctuated between 29, 32 and I was clueless as to why. Such fluctuations also undermined my confidence in my verbal ability. The concept of focusing on “ability” rather than “accuracy” is what sets Scholaranium apart from other prep material. I, also, found that attending the e-gmat free Strategy2 session a great way to focus my prep during the last 30 days prior to my test and would highly recommend anyone who is planning to take the test to attend this free session. Come test day, I scored v36 which is better than my performance during mocks.
