I did this and scored high - especially in SC. First I learnt what a subject is, what an object is and what verbs are etc. Then for every single sentence in every single prep book, I tried first to identify what is a subject, what is a verb. Then I rewrote complex sentences like this -
" In retrospect, the team and their manager did this and that to make this friggin sentence complex".
I wrote as " In retrospect, A (team is singular) and their B did X to do Y".

Interesting, it widely reduces the size of sentences. I will try it. It can be very usefull on some kind of SC :). Sometimes, the structure of sentence and plural/singular elements are so confuised. This strategy can definetily clarify all :)

Thus broken down, I could see through the mistake easily. It was painstaking but it paid off. I got 42 in verbal and I am happy about it.

Congrats :)... It's a very good score. It would be very very nice if I had even 36. Thus 42, I let u imagine ;)

RC -
I hate RCs. But then took notes (like princeton advices). Even during the main exam. So that helped too.

I c :)... I also notice that notes are crucial to strenghen my comprehension on passage and some specific content :)

Well, standard test book strategies work. But someone suggested using "equatuons" here. Like "Because of X, Y happened" etc. Maybe that will help.

Yes.... Back to Math logics could be helpfull. It's not so far from your SC method.
Yesterday, I encountered some sort of increases / decreases CR questions. I applied strategies as I do on Q. It clarfied a lot the situation. :)

BTW, since you are from FRANCE, how is INSEAD?

Sorry, I didn't collect infos about it: it seems to be out of range :). Unfortunately, I stayed too much inside the very very specific french educationnal system. I plan to enter in HEC that is with my english level and my hopped scores already a big challenge ;)

karlfurt could complete my lack of knowledge here :) I hope he will read this topic and answer baack ;)

Hi all,

I just would like to share my GMATPrep Test experience.

Starting at 9 pm and ending at 11pm today, I saw a 710 (Q50;V36) on my screen :D :D.

Positive points
> I feel more relax on Math question that i cannot achieve. I can stop me and say me: "One question is not soooooo important, try to guess and pass to a new one"
> I supprisingly arrived to stay focused till the end ! Even on verbal section :). It was not the case 3 weeks ago :)

Negative points
> I knew 1 questions in Math
> I knew 2 questions in Verbal
> Not including AWA parts

Someone will have nice dreams for 1 night today ;)

I'm wondering something, is it possible that we could have done 1 or 2 questions from OG11/10 or GMATPrep/PowerPrep on the real exam?
