hii..

Is there any specific way to Improve in Modifier Qs of SC as i feel that i m having the least accuracy in them..

Thanks..

Modifiers are indeed tricky. If you have exhausted MGMAT SC and still not comfortable with the modifies, I will suggest you to read a grammar book. Google the modifiers, and master the concept and keep learning until you are clear about the concepts.

On gmatclub search specific posts of modifies and practice exhaustively.

Thanks gurpreet...

RC, RC, RC!!!! I have to kill this beast, but how??? I take 12 minutes to read & answer a long passage & 10 minutes for a small passage. My GMAT Prep attempt has shown me that without RC, I can never imagine to get a verbal score of 40. So I need to tackle my RC. I have gone through different approaches & the best which suits me is of Gin. Any thoughts of you guys????

Gin's approach is nice.... With time and practice you can master the RC.

2 RC's a day keeps the fear away.!!!

Hi Gurpreet..

This might be the wrong place to post this Q but i could not find any place for this Q..

I am planning to give Gmat in the end of July.. Till date i ve neither given any GMAT prep Test nor done with OG 12 verbal... Should i take a Gmat prep first to analyze where i stand or should i complete my OG 12 verbal before going for GMAT prep..

Need help from seniors...

Thanks

Real Gmat without Gmatprep and OG12 is suicidal. Gmat should be given when we are at most 20 points away from target score. So do give the test and try to work harder to achieve your target score within a month.

I think i could not make my Q clear... i wanted to ask Gmatprep first (before OG12 verbal ) for analyzing where i stand OR Gmatprep after Completing OG 12 verbal too...

definitely i agree that Real GMAT without Gmatprep n OG 12 is suicidal n i never meant the same..

Oh sry. It all depends upon you, I have not given any gmatprep as I want to save it for the later use. But since only a month is left you should start giving gmatprep as you can practically leech out 4 tests by installing it again.
gmatprep-gmat-prep-powerprep-power-prep-free-tests-77548.html

Give a test asap, analyze you score properly and make a realistic plan for the coming month. Give proportionate time to sections in OG12.

Eg. if you score more on quant PS but lesser on DS. Spend more time on DS in OG12.

lemme know if its clear now. Best option is to post this query here...->

Perfect combination. Do practice RC along with other two sections.

God, this is the best topic on here! I myself am using Powerscore RC and like it. Its not for GMAT, but has lots of RC questions. Also have LR, but that book is too too big. Maybe when finished I can tell you guys if I liked it.

Hey just need a clarification.....How the following sentence should be written
"God, this is the best topic on here!"
I was under assumption that it is always, out there and in here.
So, it should be "God, this is the best topic in here!".
Can anyone comment on this, as which one is right?

Good luck to everyone on the Verbal section!
English is my first language but I think the CR/RC questions are very hard.
I like the fact that SC is somewhat predictable and I only need to apply a set of rules I know already.
I can't do that with the other two sections. I can rely on the fact that there are certain patterns but the patterns don't apply 100% of the time for RC or CR.
I've been using Kaplan's test materials but it seems like that there are some really good resources here, such as Manhattan GMAT.

OK, just finished Powerscore RC Bible. I think it's good, but maybe not needed for people already strong in RC. Since it has a decent number of practice questions, I won't buy the Superprep questions.

I did OG Verbal for RC after Powerscore RC. I heard OG Verbal is an easy book, but I'm still pleased! I already started Powerscore LR and it's good. I don't want to wait to do all three books, so I combine book with an OG section so it will stay in my head. That's it so far!!!!

Hi All,

Really great to see you guys with such an initiative.
