Again, for the 3/2 rule, check the verbal forum (there is I believe a newcomer post), you should find it easily.

Q49 V42 is a great balanced score. Congrats !
In all the practice tests I have taken, I cant cross 33 in verbal :(
Can you enlighten approx how many did you do wrong in verbal to get 42 ? Any rough idea ?

hey guys,

for those who still don't understand the 3/2 rule it goes like this:

Sentence

Pick the answer:

has blablabla
have blablabla
have blablabla
has blablabla
have blablabla

As you can see there is a pattern here. You can see that there are three "have" sentences and two "has" sentences. If you spot this pattern you will be able to eliminate 2-3 choices right away if you can figure what is the subject. It does not happen in every single SC question on the GMAT but it will help you a lot. I am also international student and it helps me as well

It was such a lon time ago, can't really remember, plus I don't really know which ones I got wrong :-D

However, what I can tell you is that mistakes in verbal are more "severely" punished than mistakes in math - that was my impression anyway. Mistakes in verbal drag your score down quicker than mistakes in math I thought.

The 3/2 rule is , In some GMAT question , out of 5 answer choices, you will be able to identify similiar answer choices with a 3:2 split. You could use this rule to quickly identify the wrong answer choices. This can also be used for making a better guess when you have narrowed down quickly to 2 / 3 answer choices which seem correct.

For eg :

Jose's mother calls him lazy because he doesnt clean his room
Joses mother calls him lazy because he doesnt clean his room
Jose's mother calls him lazy because Jose doesnt clean his room
Jose's mother calls Jose lazy because he doesnt clean his room.
Joses mother calls Jose lazy because he doesnt clean his room.

If you see the answer choices you can see that there are three answer choices with calls him lazy and 2 with calls Jose lazy. If you have your SC skills intact you would identify that this is testing your knowledge on possesives.

Immediately you would narrow down to two options D, E, and now you can hopefully figure out the answer is D, as D correctly uses a possesive apostrophe to decribe Jose's mother.

You can also see another 3: 2 split in this question with Joses mother and Jose's mother. You can slo use this to find out the correct answer. In this case (amongst answer choice A, C, D) you will see that in between "calls him" and "calls Jose", him has no direct refferent in the sentence, and is ambiguous. Again D is the correct answr choice. Hope this helps
