660 Q47 V34
I had given my GMAT 2 years ago (610- V28, Q47) and my critical reasoning was disastrous. i was jus giving a fluke in SC and i used to get some right and some wrong.my math was not that good , but always knew that i could pick up math in the last minute. i was from engineering background and was good at the basics in math. i was doing good at mocks, especially math section.
Then, i happened to read about e-gmat in gmatclub. Tried enquiring about the course through my friends and everybody had a good feedback.i did not want to go by the herd. decided to take a demo session by e-gmat. i fell for it in the first session itself.the session was about sentence correction and the way you approach in e-gmat is different. The way a question is broke up into clauses and then analysed. the way primary empahsis is given on the meaning etc.. i decided to go for it.
The CR videos were really helpful. the concept of pre-thinking made things easier for me. the strategy to attack each and every type of CR questions are clearly explained in the e-gmat course. the videos are desinged in such a way that i never felt as though i was preparing for gmat.watching the videos were fun and the learning used to happen simultaneously. short excercise after each topic also helped a lot in recollecting.
The strategies for RC were just the best in e-gmat. it helped me in boosting my confidence.the strategies seem time consuming in the beginning but eventually i picked up and mastered RC.
The best thing about e-gmat is the SC. the way each sentence is split into clauses and understandig the meaning of the given sentence is the just outstanding.
When I submitted the test, I saw my score report in which I had just one (Hard) question wrong out of a total of 4 RC passages. This was my biggest confidence booster and I was sure that my GMAT would go well this time, which it did!
I finished by Quant section 10 minutes in advance and my Verbal section 15 minutes in advance and landed up with a V39, Q48 and a total of 710. so i have my target score and nothing more to think about.
Thank you e-GMAT and hope this serves as motivation to everyone.
All the best to you all !!

The GMAT Club Tests gives you opportunity to get accustomed with the real GMAT tests. The question level is also almost same as the real one. Quants contain a variety of questions, which would help you to do better and improve yourself. The questions are generally above average difficulty though some easier ones have been introduced as well. Although the questions themselves were top notch, the scoring algorithm seemed to be a little off. My quant scores in the CATs were a little spread out (45-50) and the hard questions keep coming at you from around the first 5 questions, which wouldn't usually happen in the real exam. So you might find yourself running out of time, but again, this should be good for practice. With all these pros and cons, I used my GmatClub tests subscription for 6 months and then I had renewed it for another 6 months. Simply because practicing the quant section really helped boost my confidence.
