I gave the GMAT on 11 Oct and scored a 750 AWA 6. Since I am a non-native speaker, Sentence Correction was the weakest link. So for most part of my prep I was working on SC, and e-GMAT SC course helped me the most.
I really liked the course structure. The course is organized in the order of increasing difficulty level. It is divided into three parts (level 1, level2, and level3) and the content gets more detailed in each level. I liked this structure much more than the one followed by other books where all the content is at one place (a full chapter on verb tense etc.).
Each tutorial starts with a set of questions so that one can gauge his level before proceeding. Similarly each tutorial ends with a test to assess the level after taking the tutorial. The lectures are very well organized and gradually build the understanding. Only after passing a particular level can one go to the next level.
I truly admire the prompt and clear replies from the SC instructor, Payal.
The course has a decent set of GMAT like questions. I didn't find any question that was copied from some other source, though I think the team should add more. For only $39, this course offers a very high return on investment.

e-GMAT has great Sentence Correction tutorials. The different levels of tests helped me judge my performance from time to time. Examples varying from basics to the most advanced SC concepts helped me understand the various types of errors in sentences. There was a time when I felt I was poor at SC, but after following the e-GMAT tutorials and tests, I became an expert. The course doesn't assume that some concepts are easier than the other. It gives importance and enough examples on every concept - from Subject-Verb agreement to Modifiers and Tenses. The audio-visual aids are a big plus. The slides come in a logical order as if it were an instructor-led program in a class room. After the completion of the course, I was able to easily solve most of the questions from any famous GMAT prep book. e-GMAT is a great place to start one's Verbal Ability preparation. Towards the end of the course, I felt confident not only about cracking GMAT, but also about speaking and writing much better English. Thank you e-GMAT!!!
The thing about e-GMAT is that it is user friendly as both audio and visual aspects of the presentation aid the process of learning. You should enroll if are having trouble in SC. First, try the free version and then decide. Approximately, one - third of the course is free.
I had already done Manhattan SC and Aristotle SC grail. But the additional effort with e-GMAT really paid off :)

I heard of e-gmat on the BTG forums and decided to give it a shot. Loved the content, the format, and decided to use that a 100% in my preparation. Since I was tired of reading MGMAT books for Quant, e-gmat offered exactly what I was looking for. Attempted all the concept files, all Application files, and all UGEs, followed by OG12 questions. My accuracy improved from 50% to about 85%-90%. As one of the other users mentioned, the e-gmat process helps a lot in solving SC questions.
For critical reasoning, I read parts of the MGMAT book and attempted OG 11 questions, but my accuracy rate was only around 70%. Unhappy with the 70% accuracy rate, 2 weeks before the test, I ended up taking a 2-hr training session with e-GMAT. Luckily, it worked and helped me get my accuracy rate up to 90%.

With Verbal I feel it is always the basic approach that makes a lot of difference in the long run. The audio-visual presentations are a big bonus with e-GMAT when compared to conventional books since they make it a lot easier to focus and concentrate on the task at hand (especially for working professionals like me after long days of work). I completed the concepts in e-GMAT and was hitting a high accuracy in the OG questions, spending on an average 1-2 minutes per question (8/10 right on an average). The main reason for my improvement in accuracy in SC questions, needless to say, was PRACTICE. The UGE questions in e-GMAT were the enablers for this practice. One would probably find tons of free SC practice questions on the Internet, but getting good explanations to each of the answer choices is what helps the learning process immensely and e-GMAT.s UGE exercises are complete and very useful in this regard. Even though MGMAT has very good material to build strong fundamentals, there are not enough practice exercises to fine tune the concepts and start scoring high in OG-like questions. This gap between learning and actual improvement in scoring is very well bridged by e-GMAT.s vast practice exercises.
e-GMAT is an excellent source for Sentence Correction. It was towards the end of the preparation that a friend of mine recommended e-GMAT to me because I was struggling with SC questions a lot. They have free concept files. I attempted them and found them extremely helpful. Especially their process steps are great. And the way they help us in understanding the process steps and implementing them is great. I definitely would not be in 700+ club without e-GMAT. I owe them big time.
They have excellent course work and a lot of examples. They also have around 150+ gmat like SC questions in the UGE. All good quality GMAT type questions and good explanations. It is a great resource. I will definitely recommend all of you who have a problem with SC to go through their free sessions and see if you want to purchase the complete set of classes. They have also launched the CR trial version recently.

While taking mock tests, I discovered that that my problem with SC was my accuracy. My accuracy in sets of SC questions varied between 40-95 %. I tried very hard to get some consistency but to no avail. To help me out with my SC, i joined the e-GMAT course. This course completely changed my approach to SC. I have got to say, this is one killer course. I had done all the grammar rules, but it was like rule overkill for me. I was unable to concentrate. This course gave me a lot of direction. It taught me a concrete technique/approach to SC and immensely helped me improve my accuracy up to 85-90 %. While grammar rules are obviously very important, the approach to the questions can help improve accuracy as well as enable you to solve the question quickly. e-GMAT really helped me attain this. I also found the structure of the concept files very helpful. This course was a very good confidence booster. For all of you out there who feel their weakest section is SC, this course can do wonders.

710 GMAT score is a significant improvement from my previous scores - 650 & 650. My verbal score of 38 is a good improvement from my previous verbal score of 34. This time I could confidently solve the sentence correction questions. I am deeply indebted to 'e-GMAT' for this improvement. e-GMAT SC course gave me a launching pad for 700+.
As a non-native English speaker, I found it hard to crack the sentence correction questions. My accuracy was around 60% and how many ever problems I solved from various resources, I wasn't able to improve my accuracy. That's when I came to know about e-GMAT. Barely after a week of studying this course, I could see a significant improvement in my accuracy. The way e-GMAT explains the concepts is refreshingly different and it makes solving sentence correction questions pretty interesting. I was using numerous other resources and everything had somewhat the same approach and some of the questions got repeated across the materials. e-GMAT gave me a solid method to approach the sentence correction questions and I could apply the same method in all types of questions whether simple or difficult. Once I completed the concepts and exercises in the course, I stared solving problems from OG and I could achieve an accuracy level of 80 - 90% every time. I have already recommended e-GMAT course to couple of my friends and would not hesitate to recommend this product to anyone who is struggling with sentence correction.
The interactive feature of the e-GMAT course is the most interesting feature of the product. It allows to play, pause, rewind, or forward the content. I was bored with traditional paper books as those weren't interesting at all and they all prescribed to mug up the sentence correction rules. But e-GMAT's interactive feature inculcated an interest for sentence correction questions in me and once I completed the course I had the much needed confidence to crack the GMAT sentence correction questions.
I would strongly recommend the e-GMAT course on Sentence Correction. The way the content is delivered is great and it contains the right level of detail. We are not here to be the experts on the complete English Grammar. What GMAT expects is that we are aware of standard English usage protocols i.e. not as such know the definition of "Subject" & "Predicate" but know that every sentence contains something /someone which is the primary actor(subject) and contains what the primary actor is doing /conveying etc. As e-GMAT consistently stresses, it is the meaning & the context of the sentence that needs to be understood before tackling any sentence correction question. Once you understand the sentence, the rules are standard i.e. antecedent missing or incorrect comparison etc. The rules that get tested are pretty limited.
The great think about e-GMAT is that it is a "Voice Over" presentation course. Surely, the content design science supports the fact that Voice Over presentations/courses work better wonders than reading a book all by yourself. My argument is not whether Manhattan SC book is good (surely it works wonderfully for few people) but that the way in which e-GMAT delivers the content via a Voice Over presentation is a far more effective way of learning for the average individual.
I would strongly recommend non-native and native speakers of English to try out e-GMAT courses. Moreover, Payal and Rajat are very prompt in responding to your queries. If the above principles of learning works for anyone, he or she may also try out the Critical reasoning sessions offered by e-GMAT. They are pretty effective. Thanks to Payal and Rajat.

I could improve my SC accuracy from 60 - 70 to about 90%. The approach to solve the SC problems and the clarity and depth of the concepts in e-gmat is unbeatable. Modifier and Verb tense SC problems were vague to me and I almost always got them wrong until I went through the detailed lessons on these sections in e-gmat. The course gave me a lot of clarity of concept and confidence. I would recommend e-gmat to anybody who would like to improve their SC accuracy.
