I'm a non native. My first Gmat prep test was Q49, V28. You see, I'm quite good at Quant, but terrible at Verbal. A very first technique I learned in Verbal was split technique and I must say, that technique is not for someone like me who is also terrible at memorizing. I felt like I could never memorize enough grammar rules/ word usages... to be able ace this Verbal part. I frustratedly didn't know how I should go about this Verbal score. Then I watched a session on sentence's meaning of e-GMAT. This was an eye opening. I could solve some hard questions just based on sentence's meaning approach, and their 3 step process (Meaning analysis, Error Analysis, Options Analysis) I learned though the course makes SC seem more easier task to handle, and the important thing is their approach gives me confidence to tackle SC, I just go step by step in a structured many get to the correct answer choice. My accuracy now is >80%, I'm quite happy. If I want to boost my accuracy to about 90%, I'd know where to focus my time, thanks to their Scholarinium, a great tool to know where your strengths, your weaknesses, your takt time (you should definitely see their free strategy recording on this term). So you'll know you can confidently skips some questions and still get a high score.
I'm running out of time, I just can share my experience on SC now. But if you've been struggling in SC, you should give e-GMAT a try.

Imagine that I'm going to take the test soon. How do I know if I'm ready for the big day. I'm aiming for accuracy rates of SC, RC, CR each of 80%+ (please check out e-GMAT's free recording on strategy to figure out if you're aiming for ex 720+ and given your Quant score is, ex Q49, how much you should reasonably set target for your Verbal)
Before I can reach that point, I need to have a solid foundation on each part of Verbal first. Scholaranium provides hundreds of problems for me to practice. It also has solutions in details so I will know where I falter: my approach (or thought process), or my answer choice analysis (if I eliminated incorrect choices or selected the correct choice for right reasons)
Then I will check my accuracy rates for each part SC, CR and RC. In each part, the accuracy rates will be broken down to topics, such as: Pronoun, Modifier, etc so I will know where I should focus on to raise my accuracy. For ex: my accuracy rate of Main Point is only 50%, so obviously I need to practice this part more. I will use Scholaranium to create a quiz that only has Main Point problems with all levels: easy, medium, hard to practice. etc
So you see, it's easy to use this tool. Hope you find it helpful as I do.
