Course e-GMAT GMAT Live Prep

In a few days, I realized that these guys know what we non-natives require and where we non-natives lack .
Convinced, I immediately purchased both the Verbal and Quant. packages. Though e-gmat was frequently recommended for verbal but no so frequently for Quant.After, watching the session on number properties, I realized that I had not made a wrong decision.
I was lacking in many areas and Probability and Combinations seemed like very difficult topics.E-gmat concept files are so lucid and clear that after going through the concept files ,videos and exercises , I had all my fundamentals clear.
Number properties is a grey area and looking at OGs and forums, I realized that I need to tackle the beast before it gets the better of me.E-gmat files were again superb.
Sometimes I felt that the exercise questions were tougher than the actual GMAT OG questions .But, I guess it is always better to prepare for tough questions.I have even made notes about the concepts taught by e-gmat and the way e-gmat solved some of its own problems.
I do not know about others but I do know that e-gmat Quant has raised my Quant. standards so much so that OG questions look like a cake walk. I attempted the GMATCLub tests, which come as add on with the Quant. purchase, and I frequently score 49-51 on the GMATClub tests.On GMATPrep I scored 49 on test 2.
I am going to appear for GMAT this month and I hope that all the efforts pay off.
I will recommend EGmat Quant and Verbal for anyone looking to score over 700.

e-GMAT Verbal

Course e-GMAT Verbal Online

Location Online

After struggling with Manhattan verbal guides, I realized that to score high on GMAT, i need something more than guides.
Initial search through GMATCLub forums led me to the most recommended verbal course of all -e-GMAT.Also, I was not willing to spend a thousand dollar and was happy to settle for less than three hundred dollars.e-GMAT course is value for money.
I purchased both Verbal and Quant courses from e-GMAT.e-GMAT did not let me down.The OG explanations by e-GMAT are very helpful.The step by step procedure followed by e-GMAT is simple and easy to follow.
Initially, I was worried about timing but a single sentence by Rajat in the Strategy Session changed my outlook towards time spent per question.In his words- Timing is an outcome .The Strategy session also cleared the mist surrounding the importance of first 10 questions.
Pre-Thinking in CR ,taught by e-GMAT, is really helpful because it forced me to comprehend the argument in a a pro-active manner .
The e-GMAT RC strategy is again helpful.
I being a non-native found e-GMAT verbal very helpful.
When I had purchased e-GMAT verbal and Quant. there was no tool to access ability and accuracy.I had even asked e-GMAT about use of analytic tools.But in March they came out with Scholarinium, an awesome verbal tool.The 600 questions in the Scholarinium were all of great quality .And the best part, I got the scholarinium for free and extended duration.
I am a student of both e-gmat Verbal and Quant . and I recommend it for all .

The best Quant. test in the GMAT world

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by post count [?]

GMAT Club tests are simply the best.I think that GMATClub Quant is the closest to the actual GMAT questions in style and content.There are few odd questions in the bank but those can be ignored.
The questions are elegant and some of the solutions are even more elegant.
I opted for the GMATClub tests because the price is reasonable and one can trade the Kudos for access.

Pros-
1. High quality Quant.
2. Covers all concepts and areas
3. Not expensive
4. Elegant and short solutions for quant. problems
5. Mimic the style and solution of actual GMAT Quant. questions
6. Questions of all difficulty level are included in CATs.
7. Excellent analytic tools

Cons/Improvements/ suggestions

1.Verbal tests are not of great quality
2. The quant. questions are not equally divided between DS and PS.
3. More quant. questions should be included in the DS
4.The Quizzes and the CATs share the same question pool and hence the average time per question of all users is slightly skewed to the higher side.
5.It would be a good idea if an option is provided for showing time taken per question along with overall time taken when taking CATs.Though such feature is not available on the actual GMAT :) .

Overall GMATClub tests are fantastic and kudos to bb and bunnel for putting these up for practice.

As far the scoring is considered, only GMATClub scored me 690 and that was actual GMAT score :)
