Hi Roy

Thanks a lot.

I dint get your question. What was my approach during exam or preparation? I have answered to the prep part in my earlier replies.

What i meant was besides the OG12 materials, where do you suggest to practice from?
for example, I find the CR questions in OG12 not that hard. is it enough to practice CR from the OG or should I seek more practice?
thanks

For CR I would refer Powerscore CR.
SC - For practice you can have Aristotle SC

Hey getgyan.
As you mentioned Aristotle for SC, but I don't think that they have much for meaning oriented questions. No modifier issue has been explained, an issue which can resolve all the complexities of such questions in SC.
Also can you suggest how to improve RC.
My efficiency till date in medium difficulty passages in RC99 is just over 60%, taking around 7min per passages in some passages and around 12 min per passage in some passages.

congratulations!! What is your opinion of egmat. I see that you and one other person (Pjolie) are recommending it. I need something for verbal. How do you think it compares to gmatpill.

For modifiers and meaning based approach, you should refer EGMAT. Nothing is a better substitute for RC than good material reading. I never prepared for RC

EGMAT has been voted the best verbal course on GMAT forums. It is also the cheapest and guarantees a verbal score improvement of +4. What else do you need?

Yes, SC Grail 2nd edition didn't deal with modifiers much but the 3rd edition(latest) deals with them indepth. I had pre-ordered the 3rd edition( although I had the 2nd edition )and I'm just in love with the book. Very comprehensive and structured. Absolutely In love with the book Much better than Manhattan SC also. Will probably post a review comparing Manhattan SC and Aristotle SC 3rd edition sometime. Let me get done with the GMAT first

Go for another shot , IF this was not the best one.

I think you should not extend your break too much-Take the test within 2 months,start teaching the forum members through your replies and new prep posts.

Good luck !!
