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

seriously good initiative. i have not yet seen one complete source (one-stop shop) for all my GMAT grammar/SC needs. i've been using a bunch of materials including:

my editor (she's brilliant)
MGMAT SC book (5/5 stars book!)
PowerScore SC book (4.2/5 to me, not as thorough as MGMAT's)
random notes from the community/forum
Garner's Modern American Usage (probably the authority on style and grammar -- great reference!)
Purdue University Online Writing Lab (OWL)
Strunk & White, The Element of Style (awesome little book that i had since freshman year -- wow, 8 years now?)

I just bought the e-book and before buying it I was looking at the sample copy. The sample copy mentioned that the whole e-book has 294 pages but when I bought the full e-book I see that it has 272 pages only. Could you guys confirm that the actual book does in fact have only 272 pages and not 294 pages.

The version I have is Aug 1. Also - Is there a way I could be notified when changes are made to the original version of this e-book ?

thanks

48. Jane told Marcos that in spite to him being small, he would still be a great asset to the
team because of his athletic abilities.

a) that in spite to him being small, he would still (Correct usage is "in spite OF" not "in spite TO"

b) in spite of his being of small stature, he possibly might (Overly wordy, when compared to the correct answer

c) that despite he is small, he could yet ("Despite he is small" does not making grammatical sense

d) that in spite of him being small, he would definitely

e) because he was being small, despite that, he could still (Poor sentence structure

Quote:
Can anyone explain for me why we choose d?
And "him being" or "his being"
Thanks in advance
