I have not used the SC Grail, so I can't comment on that one (you can see the review here: sc-grail-review-104794.html

However, the MGMAT SC and Ultimate GMAT Grammar are 2 different books for 2 different purposes.
one is an SC book (strategies and high level explanations) and the other one is a Grammar book (well... full of grammar rules and questions). You can download the first third of the book here to see what it is: gmat-grammar-ultimate-by-gmat-club-102387.html

Hope this helps.

P.S. MGMAT SC will be coming out in the 5th edition in about 1-1.5 months.

I haven't used the ultimate grammer but i can comment on rest two, which i have used.
mgmat SC book is a very exaustive book and written in very detailed manner with some great exercises at the end of each chapter. This book is rightly rated as bible in gmat fraternity. A must read for 600- 650 + aspirant.
Aristotle Sc grail is relatively less detailed, absoutely to the point and structured book, thus not as lenghty as mgmat SC book. If you are running short of time , SC grail would be a better pic than mgmat, however if time is not a constrain , then i would recommend mgmat SC ( again it's my personal opinion)...and if all the time is there, nothing wrong in doing both, first the SC grail and then the mgmat SC)
looking forward to comments of fellows on the topic.

I would say go with the Manhattan GMAT book. It seems to be the standard go-to book to learn the rules for sentence correction. My only complaint was that it didn't have very many practice problems. You would need to turn to the Official Guide for that.

I'm currently using GMAT Ultimate grammer to review all the grammar rules that I've forgotten or simply didn't know. I then plan on using the MGMAT SC guide to develop a strong strategy towards tackling those questions.

Im using manhattan SC guide right now. Extremely thorough. Although I bought it mainly for the 6 tests, i am learning useful things especially since Ive been hearing the real GMAT SCs are harder than OG, and GmatPrep. So its useful to learn all the concepts.

There is also MGMAT Verbal Foundations, which I like. Something to consider if you have the time and energy.

Hey bb,

do you think MGMAT Verbal Foundations can be a replacement of a Grammar book. I'm currently reading it, but still am not sure if to buy a Grammar book as well.

Thanks!

Hey,

I was on the Aristotle website (http://www.aristotleprep.com) and they have a good deal going. You can get the Sentence Correction Grail and practice questions, Ultimate One Minute Explanations to Official Guide 12 Sentence Corrections, and both Reading Comprehension Practice Sets for $29. I do not know how long the deal will last but buying them without the deal would cost you $49. The code to use is "combo." My only concern is that it stated they expire in 600 hours. I emailed the company to determine if the links expire in 600 hours.

Update: The link expires in 600 hours but they stated they would resend the link if I needed it.
