Hi Friends,

Recently i heard that idioms are no more tested in Gmat, is this true? or Do we need to go through all the Idioms, because i see a Number of idioms in the Manhattan SC Book and it takes time to memorize these Idioms,as i am a non-native speaker, so do anyone know if the Idioms are tested Current Gmat?

Thanks in advance :)

Buddy,
the man behind the GMAT, Larry has already clarified on this and said that as per him they should have already gone by now...so that authenticates that we need not cram them up...moreover a number of recent testtakers have confirmed in their debrief that Idioms are no more tested...so that calls for a loud cheers for the non native community...however since we are prac from old stuff so we r bound to come across a few Idioms based qns, I am simply ignoring my such idioms based mistakes... :)

I think this way: although the GMAC do not test idiom at all, we should remember (not try to learn) some idioms through practice. Especially, focus on OG12 :D
