It's the pay pal account creation I guess, can't I just pay directly though my CC and not create a paypal account. I don't think Paypal is available in my country.

Hi.. In the GMAT Grammar book, Exercise 35,

7- answer is (not have gone)... I believe it should be (not HAD gone) as in the past negative contrary to fact sentences we use hadn't + verb in past participle, for (would rather that) type.

8- answer is had served ... I believe it should be (have served) as its the "would rather - past case", the formula for that mentioned is subject + would rather + have + verb in past participle..

can someone pls confirm the above two, or am I missing something. ..

thanks.

I agree with you on #7 -

Should be: "Mark's Parents would rather that he not had gone to that school last semester
However, for #8 -Mary would rather they had served seafood than pizza at the convention last night is a Past Contrary to Fact. This is past contrary to fact unless someone thinks otherwise.

I also see that one of the last boxes should be labeled as Past instead of present. The description says "past" but the box header says present. This was an editing error. Originally it was correct but when we reworked the formatting and redid the boxes (I can see in tracked changes), the error was introduced.

I will update the PDF

Some more observations: From Advanced Practice Exercise,

5- (Answer given is C) - It can only be C, if you remove 'for' from the end or D if you add that to connect the restrictive clause.

33- (Answer given is A) - although none of the choices seem right, don't you think the answer should be ... "would work on it this weekend instead of... "

39 - (answer given is B) - Is this really a logical conclusion since we used 'must', sound more like an obligation and hence 'should', should have been used.. don't you agree ?

42 - (answer given is D) - It can't be D since the pronoun at the start of D 'his' has no subject/Noun (misplaced modifier).. Don't you think the answer should be 'A', the subject is being introduced and is a complete sentence with proper pronoun linkage.

Let me know..

Yes! I deleted "for"

I agree that that would be the best wording. I think here we tried to make it harder though by making the best choice not necessarily be the best sounding. It is easy to pick out an error and say - "it should be fixed this way" but it is harder to answer a question that does not have the answer you think it should. Does this make sense?
Quote:
39 - (answer given is B) - Is this really a logical conclusion since we used 'must', sound more like an obligation and hence 'should', should have been used.. don't you agree ?

Must is the correct usage here. Should implies that they are recommended to use great care but it is not required. Must has several meanings and in this case, does mean Must take great care so that they don't destroy them. I feel I am failing to explain this, so consider these examples: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/must[/quote]

Quote:
42 - (answer given is D) - It can't be D since the pronoun at the start of D 'his' has no subject/Noun (misplaced modifier).. Don't you think the answer should be 'A', the subject is being introduced and is a complete sentence with proper pronoun linkage.

I don't have an answer for this one. Let me play with it and I will get back with you.

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

Hm... I thought i have replied to this post.
Unfortunately there is no way to get notifications about the new revisions.

However, the revisions so far have been very minor.
The page count has been shrunk from 294 pages to 272 for printing purposes (we have cut out some of the white pages and separators as well as condensed questions).

So far, we have been updating once every 2 months. You are welcome to check in from time to time but none of these are major changes (mostly clarifications and changes as the result of user feedback)

The free download is the first part (Basic) and is about 30% of the size.
the full download is 3x the size and has Intermediate and Advanced parts.

Can I ask questions regarding the answer to the practice tests here? If not, please let me know and remove my post.

on #22 of final exam, why is the answer B? equipment is not uncountable and chemicals is definitely not countable?

BTW the book is GREAT! THX.

Sure you can.
Chemicals is countable in this situation
You can say 1 chemical or 15 dangerous chemicals

Hopefully this helps. I know, it sounds like chemicals is a group, so should be non-countable but it is a countable noun.

Thanks for the quick reply bb!
That does sound strange, I guess I will have to give in to exception like this in SC part.

I have one more question. On #72 of final exam. Why is choice D correct? I thought the first part should be in present perfect since this is an unreal condition?

Again, thanks so much.

Hey ... thank a tonn for composing the book.

Quick question about Q#45 on pg 147

45. The music for which we heard last night at the concert was exceptionally good.

a) for which we heard last night at the concert
b) to which we listened at the concert last night
c) last night at the concert that we listened
d) of last night’s concert who we heard
e) which we listened last night at the concert

Could you please explain why "B" is the right choice.

Isn't "which" preferred over "to which" ? "E" is a better choice, no ?

I think it's because "to" sticks to "listen".We say "listen to the music". When there's an object, "to" should not be dropped.
