Note from BB:
Dear Members,
After years of fruitlessly searching for the perfect GMAT grammar book (not just a grammar book but something relevant), we have decided to create our own GMAT Grammar Guide. It is designed to help international students who need to improve their English and Grammar skills before tacking the SC or AWA sections and also to help with essay writing and just to be better at English. It is a community project to create the best GMAT guide that will be free to this community. The guide is designed to be to the point without fluff and focus on the main points. We will be posting a topic every few days for the next several months. I hope this guide and work will help you succeed on the GMAT and get into your dream school. I would also like to invite you to use it and provide your feedback

Thank you,
Best Regards,
BB, Founder of GMAT Club

Thank you for the post!!!

I am not familiar with Continuous/non-continuous verbs. Do you have a resource online I could use to learn more?

Also, does this have anything to do with transitive/non-transitive?

Continuous/Non Continuous/Mixed verbs are a classification more on "verb tenses". They are not similar to transitive/intransitive verbs(which is a classification based on verbs' objects). But of-course transitive/intransitive verbs can be mapped with continuous/non continuous/mixed verbs.

Got it! Thanks! I get it now (when paired together with the tenses).
We'll put it in!

I just completed SC from Princeton and had marked "Prepositions" and "Past perfect" tense for further reference in the grammar section here.

Thank you. Exactly what I wanted.

I know this is supposed to be for international students, but I think it is a great guide even if you aren't international!

I really need to refresh my grammar, since I didn't realize how much I picked up on the regular grammatical errors that Americans use eac and everyday. Thanks for this..hopefully I will be able to contribute as I brush up my skills.
