Hi guys,

I have heard a number of times now that MGMAT SC is no more the bible of SC as there are various topics like advanced paralellism & ellipsis, which are not covered in Manhattan SC.

Now can anyone refer to me any resource available specifically covering ellipsis?? I heard that beat the gmat has a document, but I couldn't find it. If any one can share any information regarding ellipsis, I will be grateful.

Hussain ,

This is first time I am hearing about "advanced paralellism & ellipsis" .

Can shed some light on these topics with examples?

Who told you that? Have you seen any official problem dealing with ellipsis and advanced parallelism? what do you mean by "advanced parallelism?

I see. I have the SC document, so I'll go through the problems trying to find ellipsis problems and I'll post them in the forum. I don't know what "advanced parallelism" means. Do you have any examples?

Hi Hussain,

I suggest for ellipsis and some other odd topics u refer to Kaplan's GMAT 800.
It has got almost all types covered for SC.

I have resources but they are not GMAT "oriented". Are you referring to ellipsis in comparisons and parallelism? Could you put an example? I've collected many questions with explanations in that topics, I can put them here and discuss if you want.

Most discussions are from experts. It may not be complete guide to ellipsis, but may help someone.

I dont know how to differentiate parallelism being basic and advanced, what bipolarbear quoted in his debrief is complex parallelism, may be a parallelism a bit twisted, can help only if specific questions with such a complexity is identified. Because as ellipsis , complex parallelism doesnt seem to be a separate topic. If someone comes up with any such SC with complex parallelism, it would be helpful, or else bipolarbear can give us some examples related to it.
