re-took my test and got a 490, quant was 35 but verbal ONLY 23. While the first time verbal was 31 (Q 28, total 500). Lots of sentence correction, all cr and rc seemed ok.

could it be possible that comp made mistake, anybody heard about it? Also, any option to get accepted or better to postpone and re-take?

What's the best strategy for the SC preparation?

Thanks to any feedback

Vlad - get the Manhattan SC book, and GMAT Official Guide and Verbal review and attack SC like there's no tomorrow. This helped me and many others here and will work wonders for you as well.

I liked the Princeton Review Verbal Workout for sentence correction. I do not have the MGMAT for Sentence Correction but I am sure that would help you as well. Use the Error Log for Sentence corrections. Once you start using it you will begin to see a pattern like the 2-3 splits, incorrect idiom usages, misplaced modifiers, subject verb agreement etc. A few sentences may just sound correct to your ears and hence you could choose those. Error log may take a long time to work on but nevertheless crucial to bring your scores up.

I got a 490 on my GMAT that I took last time and I scored a 35 and 21 on Q & V respectively. Sounds like we both are in the same boat. You are not alone :)

Good Luck
