Please note that these are only guidelines and are by no means mandatory. However, by adhering to them, it will make the verbal forum a much more user friendly place to surf through.

When you post, please indicate the category under which the question falls.

SC = Sentence correction
CR = Critical reasoning

You can refer any number to that question but please include a short title for the question so that it is easier to retrieve if one needs to refer to it in the future. If you post a sentence correction question, please underline the portion which is to be altered. Unless the question has multiple parts, try posting only 1 question per thread as it eases the discussion process.
Last but not least, try to provide the official answer(OA) to your question within 2 days.
Thank you.
If you have any questions

Please do not flood the forum. Post at most 10 questions at a time so as to give a chance to everyone to answer your questions.

I Highly REQUEST everybody to POST the SOURCE of the QUESTION. And if you are posting Questions from ETS paper based test Please POST SOMETHING LIKE " ETS question" ... may be some of us don't want to attempt Paper question now because they if they attempt the questions now they won't be left with any official material to gauge performance level.

Thanks

I strongly encourage members to provide an explanation with their answers and it does not have to be anything lengthy. I understand that often times one could be at work and not have the time to do so but consistently posting one liner messages such as:
"It is A, B or E"
"What is the OA"
"Between A and B, I pick B"
will diminish everyone's learning experience. One can only imagine coming to a discussion forum and only seeing the above mentioned posts and wonder what is the real value-added to be obtained in participating in such a forum. Please participate in an active way and if you believe that an answer is right or wrong, try to explain why you think so. It is crucial to remember that there is no value in getting an answer right or wrong or even knowing what the answer is. Instead, you should know why the answer is right; it is the only way to a disciplined approach to obtain a good score. Moreover, it is also another way of contributing back to GMATclub and share with others what you have learned here.

I would like to remind everybody of the guideline of this forum that official answers (OA) should be posted within two days after the opening post is posted.

I also I suggest to first search available questions using keywords from your question. This will help to reduce the duplicate postings.

As a matter of fact, you will find many discussions on the same topic. However, I suggest people to let the discussion go and not post the link if the original post is more than 2 weeks old. For those who know the answer, just ignore it. This will allow new or less active member to participate.

Pls mention in the title if the question is from Gmat Prep. Because it will lead to repitition when you take the Gmat prep and you may get a distorted picture of your score level.

Please do not include the answer or your choices, such as "I debated over A and D" in the original question. Reasoning becomes biased if one sees answer in the original post.
