Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
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.
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.
