Hi Vishal,

SC tends to be the section that is easiest to improve in a short amount of time - but you do need to know what to look for.

Make sure you are continuously tracking your responses and marking which ones you got wrong. You are welcome to use the free OG Tracker to record your responses and post any discussion: http://www.gmatpill.com/official-guide-gmat/

Before you got to bed, re-attempt those questions you got wrong and ask yourself what you could do differently next time. Then the next day, look at those questions once again to make sure you've learned from your mistakes!

Hi Vishal, I agree with the advice given by GMATPILL, you can improve your SC by a lot in a relatively short time frame if you know what to look for. You have the books, but learning what to look for is the main takeaway of studying. Remember that sentence correction is primarily concerned with logic, and the incorrect answer choices will usually have something logically wrong within them (meaning, use of terms, etc).

Also, if you want to get more familiar with English grammar, it's always helpful to start reading more in English. Based on your writing it seems that English isn't your first language, so increased exposure will help you subconsciously become more familiar with the rules of grammar and how correct sentences are formed. This is a little more of a long-term improvement but it can help with your RC, SC and AWA (and that's just on the GMAT) so it's never a bad use of your time.

Hope this helps!
-Ron

Thanks for the reply.
I asses myself and what think that main problem is not the English as First language. I have started preparing for any competitive exam after 6 years of break. May be this could be the main reason?
I will follow the suggestions made by you.

Hi Kumar,

If you want to master SC, I would highly recommend trying the egmat course. I found it extremely useful especially as a non-native. It helped me understand SC in a much better way.

Also check out Ron's videos, they are the best free resources on SC.

+1 Kudos if you found this useful :)
