720 Q50 V37
REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by score report [?]
I took the e-GMAT VLP to learn GMAT specific concepts and tips and tricks to crack the verbal component. Well, I hope this is what we all look for, that unmentioned secret tricks of the game, but eGMAT verbal is beyond that. As a non-native English speaker, the language is not taught to us the same way as it is in other English speaking countries. eGMAT verbal complements that traditional teaching and gives you a comprehensive understanding of the language. This i feel is a differentiating factor from other courses. I can guarantee you that if you follow the course structure as it is prescribed, you will be happy of making a good decision and probably the best decision for improving your verbal score.In my case, I read the articles on economist and nytimes to apply the concepts i learnt.
On the day of my exam, I was down with fever and was feeling miserable ( talk of Murphy's law :-/). I was getting through each section with a sense of dissatisfaction for not being able to concentrate. I could see that in verbal, I was not able to give more time to sentence correction( the long underlined sentences were very difficult to concentrate with watering eyes and a headache). And at the end i managed a V37 to score a 720. If not for the course I am sure my score at the max would be around 30.
So to sum it up, VLP is the best verbal course for non-natives and one of the best courses for anyone in general. You will not regret it for sure.
