You already have done OG12 right so why not start with question that you did wrong since you got only 60% right.
you can pick up OG 10 as well attempt them and search for there solution if you are confused with the explanation given in OG itself.
you can pick Verbal O.G Review, 1000SC Questions and also Brutal SC questions which are already available here in the Gmat Club with solution.
It is upto you to decide what is best for you..... :-D
Another thing if you want to search for any question, search that question in Google and you will get links related to the question for all the forums......

I more thing you can do is Make a list which includes all the words that you think can create problem in sentence correction question For ex: the fact is ,being,have ,has ,had ,ing, that , will ,would , if , and so on whatever you remember and when you face a problem and that word to this list.
that will also help in pin pointing the area where the problem may appear...

Hi amneetpadda,

Thanks for your detailed reply. I will try to do the wrong questions again.
Great tip of making list. Will follow that.

Just want to know, how you study from the forum posts..Asked similar question my earlier post too.
Do you pick any question from SC forum and then read the solution to it? or you first try to solve it?

Yes Pavle, I have used CR Bible and that has improved my accuracy n CR.
Thanks for all your support and suggestions.

Hi all

Am new to this Forum.

I plan to take GMAT by this year end.

I was going through another forum where people were discussing about e-gmat,an online course on SC.

DOes anybody have any idea about this?

Few people were very happy with their online material.

According to them they were able to improve their performance in SC from 60% to 80+

See I attempt the question from the all the 1000SC, Brutal SC and any question that is marked as tough, tricky or 700 plus Question in this forum and attempt first on my own and than compare it with the other users solution.

If I don't find the solution helpful on one forum, I try to search them on other forums and see there solution just for ur help
U can go to following site after attempting the 1000SC question
http://thousandsc.blogspot.com/
http://gmatsentencecorrection.blogspot.com

and see the solution from both
but do this only after you have completed og10,12 and verbal.

I hope this helps

Hi anirudhsaraf7

I am no genius but i can advice you onething try to do OG12 and OG10 first for verbal and give GMAT Prep test.
and you may find your accuracy more than 80% in that case i don't think you will require any other course or material.

First Complete OG if you find that you are still not performing as you desire than you can think of going for other material.

Both editions of the OG Verbal are generally easier than the verbal sections in OG12.

@amneetpadda

Thanks amneet
I will finish up OG12 first.
I am studying from manhattan SC and i take up corresponding questions from OG12.

My problem is that when i do OG my hit rate is 50%.
Once finishing manhattan SC should i re do the OG and then check my hit rate?

@anirudhsaraf:
Treat OG12 like holy scripture do it as many times as you can but try to understand the reason why one option over scores the other options as well.
It depends upon you mate if you are applying the rules correctly then your hit rate might go up to 90%.

If you know the reason only than you can perform well.

PS: I am no Verbal guru I am just sharing with my thoughts

I did Verbal OG and got 25 incorrect out of 113.... i don't think that is bad start but that is not a good start either....:P

Flipkart.in is the solution. I have bought books from them, so do not worry about the delivery.

Hi amneetpadda,

Try Vocaboly software for words. About CR, I have not solved verbal review yet but I have improved in CR by going through OG 10. I first read CR bible and then solved OG10 and then OG12.

Thanks,
