Thank you, e-GMAT team.Yes indeed.
How was your preparation before e-GMAT?
In my previous attempt, Quant was quite manageable, but verbal was pulling my score down.

To be honest, after going through the course, I got the much needed confidence to ace the GMAT.
Glad the course helped you, Sumeet. Would you like to add anything else for your fellow test takers?
Verbal Online is amazing – simple, yet complete and effective! It is responsible for my verbal score improvement from V34 to V41.

Sumeet Vatsa

Hi Sumeet. Congratulations on scoring a 730.
Thank you, e-GMAT team.
How was your preparation before e-GMAT?
I have studied from MGMAT SC guide extensively for my previous attempt. However, I could not fill the conceptual gaps and ended up with a V33 – much below my target score.
What aspects of the e-GMAT course, according to you, made the difference in your preparation?
Multiple aspects of the course such as the rich content, well placed examples, the amazing audio-visual lessons, the application files, and the coverage of concepts, etc. played crucial role in my scoring a V39 in my next attempt!
Glad the course helped you, Sumeet. Would you like to add anything else for your fellow test takers?
I give majority of credit to e-GMAT for my verbal score jump from 67%ile to 88%ile – for non-natives, verbal preparation is incomplete without e-GMAT Verbal Live Prep.
Thank you, Sumeet. Wish you all the best for your future endeavors.
Thank you e-GMAT. Wish you all the best too!
Adam score 700 on the GMAT, improving by 210 points!

Adam Livak

Hi Adam. You have seen a dramatic improvement in your GMAT score in this attempt. What happened in the first two attempts?
Before e-GMAT, I scored a 490 and a 530 on my previous attempts with a verbal score of 26, and I was devastated. I had used MGMAT’s full book series for the first attempt and added in Magoosh’s online prep for the second. After recovering from the results, I decided I would take the GMAT one last time. However, I was really in need of the right approach and methodology to tackle the GMAT.
As a native speaker, what prompted you to opt for e-GMAT?
Initially, I wasn’t sure whether e-GMAT works for me as I am a native speaker. However, after a bit more of research, I decided to go through their free trial and attend their free webinars. I realized that their teaching methodology works for anyone struggling with verbal in general. I immediately subscribed to their Verbal Live Prep course.
How did the approach at e-GMAT help you in your preparation? Is there anything specific that you followed in your preparation?
The approach and methodologies used to learn the concepts and solve the questions are without a doubt the reason for my verbal improvement. To get the most out of the live sessions, I made sure to complete the pre-requisites for the session so that the instructor can help you identify and address your true weaknesses. Speaking from experience, I can confidently say that live feedback such as this can really benefit your overall prep.
What aspects of the course helped in your preparation?
The course is carefully designed to help inculcate concepts, track progress and learn the application. This helps the learner to ensure progressive learning.
Can you give an example?
For example, at the end of each concept you are given a quiz. The quiz is not just a bunch of GMAT-like questions. It is a specialized quiz to reinforce what you have just learned. This is just one example. The course has been very well-designed keeping the average test taker in mind.
How much improvement did you see from the course?
I noticed a sharp spike in my verbal accuracy after completing this course and eventually, I scored a 700 with a V35 – a 9-point Verbal score improvement.I would strongly recommend the Verbal Live Prep course for anyone seeking an increase, big or small, in verbal score.
What advice would you give to your fellow GMAT aspirants?
Do not be afraid to go through all the verbal concepts more than once, if you feel the need to do so. Use the video concepts and recordings as many times as needed!
Everyone has specific needs for effective preparation. For me, I needed interaction, videos, and hands on learning content, and Verbal Live Prep is the go-to course for these.
Sourav scores a GMAT 710!

Sourav Debnath

Hi Sourav. Congratulations on scoring 710. How does it feel to reach your target score?
Feels great, I must say.
How did e-GMAT help you?
After I subscribed to e-GMAT course I realized my shortfalls in my verbal strategy. I got everything I needed to crack SC and RC.
What aspects of the course helped you in the Verbal section?
Knowledge of sentence structure and attacking SC question by splitting the clauses was the key in improving on SC. The RC strategy too worked very well for me. Needless to say, pre-thinking was the key to my success in CR.
Glad to know that the course helped you Sourav. Is there anything else that you’d like to add?
A ton of thanks to the ace teachers of e-GMAT (Rajat, Payal & Shraddha)! I fully attribute my verbal success – V23 to V40 – to e-GMAT.
Thank you for your words, Sourav. Wish you all the best for your future endeavours.
Thank you team e-GMAT.
