Sankalp improved on GMAT with 750 in 2 months.

Sankalp Jain

Hi Sankalp. How does it feel scoring a 750 and a V42?
It feels great! Your verbal course is really a game changer and worth every dollar and probably more.
This is your second attempt at the GMAT. How much did you score in your first attempt.
I first attempted the GMAT in 2012 and scored a 680 (Q49, V34).
What steps did you take after your first attempt?
After 4 years of sitting on that score, I decided to retake the GMAT and my target score was 750. To achieve this score, I knew I had to significantly improve my performance on the verbal section. Before I joined a paid prep-course, I wanted to spend sometime preparing on my own and seeing how it goes. After 2 weeks of flying solo, I realized my efforts lack direction and it is better to join a properly structured course.
Why did you not join a classroom coaching?
Classroom courses are only as good as the instructor taking your class. As I am living in a small town, I knew that the trainers available would not be too good. At this point I was fairly certain that I need to enroll myself in an online prep course. This is when I decided to give e-GMAT a try.
How did e-GMAT help you with your verbal preparation?
Opting for e-GMAT was the best decision I made in my test prep. Let me just say that e-GMAT has decoded the mystery that GMAT verbal is for most non-natives. If you do their Sentence Correction module properly, you are set. I have become such a big fan of e-GMAT that I recommend the course to every aspirant I know.
Would you like to add anything else?
There is no magic pill to ace the GMAT. However, you can ensure the best possible returns from your effort if you take this course. I reached my target score of 750 in a little over 2 months.
Vivian improved from 710 to 770 using e-GMAT Verbal Online

Vivian Xiaowei Liu

Hi Vivian. How does it feel to achieve the dream score of 770?
Feels wonderful. Although it took me quite a bit of effort to achieve this score, its worth every bit and will help me in securing a good admit.
That’s wonderful. Can you tell us a bit about your preparation before you enrolled with e-GMAT?
Before joining e-GMAT, I attempted the GMAT four times with scores of 630, 700, 720 and 710. I studied all the materials available and put in hundreds of hours into my preparation, but still couldn’t improve further.
What made you change your mind about your preparation strategy?
When I couldn’t achieve my target score in my fourth attempt too, I realized that acing the GMAT not only requires hardwork but also requires a proper preparation strategy.  I took a chance with e-gmat and bought the verbal online course. Given the fact that I got big fellowship from a top 15 school, I believe the two hundred dollars is probably the best investment I’ve made so far.
How did e-GMAT help you with your preparation?
The meaning-focused approach prescribed by e-GMAT worked very well for me and I thought it was the most logical way to tackle SC questions. This approach also improved my comprehension skills required for CR and RC as well. I cannot think of any better way to prepare for SC section.
Good to hear that. Did you do anything different regarding your approach towards the exam?
e-GMAT’s free webinars on GMAT Preparation Strategy are priceless! I say so because even if a test taker is proficient in every individual section, he/she may still not be able to achieve his/her best when all three types of questions are mixed together. Moreover, the GMAT is computer adaptive. The webinars addressed so many such useful aspects and equipped me with the right tools to create my own preparation strategy. There’s just so much useful information provided in those webinars.
Thank you for the appreciation, Vivian. We wish you all the very best for your future endeavors.
Thank you e-GMAT. You helped me raise my score from 710 to 770.
Anirudh scored a 720 on the GMAT

Anirudh Sheldekar

Hi Anirudh. Can you tell us a bit about your initial preparation?
Since I have graduated from one of the top engineering colleges in India, I never faced issues with quant section. Without much efforts I was scoring in the range of 49 – 51. However my pain point was the verbal section. I did not have proper structure in place for verbal preparation. Also, I could never develop the confidence of reaching a point where I could say that I would score > 35 in the verbal section despite exhausting my study materials such as Manhattan SC guide, Manhattan CR guide etc.
How did you come across e-GMAT?
I was so frustrated with my struggle to improve in the verbal section that, at one point of time, I even thought of putting my preparation on hold. That is when I stumbled upon e-GMAT Verbal Online course on Facebook. I realized that this course is tailor-made for people like me who are weak in Verbal. I immediately enrolled for the course and even today, I believe that this step single-handedly changed the course of my preparation.
How was the content of the course?
The course provides excellent quality content, I must say. The online video modules cover all the essential topics covered on the GMAT with exhaustive detail and impart methodical processes to be followed to solve any question on the GMAT.
How did Scholaranium help you?
Scholaranium is a very powerful platform to analyse ones performance/progress after one completes certain topics. Additionally it lets you set the topics you would specifically like to be tested on with attributes such as time, sub section, etc. Highly effective in my case. I used it extensively by filtering questions based on the topics I wasn’t good at and started tracking my progress.
How was the support provided by the team?
Any concept or question related queries are addressed in the internal forums. These forums have tons of useful discussions and are a big knowledge repository. Whenever I had a query not related to any doubts, I would mail to the support team and they would provide me with prompt and effective responses. The eGMAT team also provides its users with a study plan. This is also very effective as it defines your goals for the course of your preparation.
Would you like to add anything else?
I have seen ample materials online but none comes close to the quality which eGMAT provides. Also, the verbal online course is priced at a very reasonable rate compared to products offered by eGMAT’s competitors.
Arun scored a 710 on the GMAT

Arun Taneja

Hi Arun. How does it feel to achieve your target score of 710?
Thank you so much. I could achieve my target score today and I must say that the major contribution has been from your Verbal Online course. Your course is way way better than anything else in the market. You should start giving score increase guarantee even on your virtual course. It is so good.
Can you tell us what happened in the first attempt?
I had given GMAT a few months back. I took help from another test prep firm. However, there was no coherent structure to the preparation and so, I could score only a 640.
How did Verbal Online help you during your second attempt?
The program really explains the concepts thoroughly and in a concise manner. After going through a concept file, you really come out with the feeling of ‘ wow’. The Application Files continue that wow feeling by showing you how to apply the concepts you just learnt on GMAT-like questions.
How did Scholaranium help you in your preparation?
The explanation to each and every question is A-class. Just to give you a bit of insight: I gave a gmat prep just after completing concept section – i scored a 640. Then I took a month or two to complete scholaranium and my score straight away jumped away to 680/690. Scholaranium provides excellent insights into your strengths and weaknesses that you need to focus on for effective preparation.
Thanks Arun. Would you like to add anything else?
Thank you so much and keep doing the good work guys!
Kavya scores a 730 on the GMAT

Kavya Madireddi

Hi Kavya. Heartiest congratulations on scoring a 730.
Thank you, team.
How was your preparation before e-GMAT?
Before subscribing to e-GMAT, I studied from multiple sources. But couldn’t achieve my target score..
How did you prepare with e-GMAT?
I followed the study plan diligently. Also, whenever I had any doubts, I used to re-listen to all the concepts, an activity that helped in strengthening the concept more.
What aspects of the course, according to you, helped the most with your preparation?
In SC questions, the stress on importance of meaning of the sentence was very crucial. In CR, breaking down the argument, pre-thinking, and forming a logical structure before the process of elimination really helped in improving my accuracy.
Glad the course helped you, Kavya. Would you like to add anything else for your fellow test takers?
One word – process. Frankly, like many other people, I used to think of e-GMAT process as lengthy and time consuming, but the same process helped me improve from 680(V32) to 730(V39)! If you want to ace the GMAT, focus on the processes taught in the course and apply them diligently throughout your preparation.
Thank you for your time and Wish you all the best for your future endeavors.
Thank you team e-GMAT.
