I have heard many people say that they still receive 1 or 2 idiom questions per exam...until the GMAC officially states otherwise, I think it will be worthwhile to look over them.

Thanks to crejok for this list!

Do we still need to study idioms. I thought GMAC removed idioms

I'm glad you had that question as well, since my post, I've started using flashcards.

I'm using correct idioms only, opposed to focusing on the wrong idioms, which the MGMAT CH.9 Covers, I'm opposed to remembering wrong information, so I've focosed on the correct idioms, the book covers suspect & wrong, but just focus on the correct idioms, and take the unnecessary sentences away.

Focus on the idioms it self.

Not (In front of Flashcard)
Or (Back of flashcard)

Pg. 166 Ch. 9 MGMAT SC 5th Ed.

You'll be tired of writing, but it will help you out a lot. If you remember certain idioms don't bother writing them down, write down the ones that are challenging you.

Kudos if this helps,

Do we really need to memorize all of these? I feel we can make out most of the idioms by ear!!

The best thing you can do, is view them, and study the SC questions, sooner or later the idioms will 1) make sense 2) know when to properly use them 3) sounds better vs. grammatically correct are 2 different things.

Use Flashcards, for example write on one side, " Not X," on the back write "But Y", I've built a large pile of idiom/flashcards, and they seem to help me remember them, that and practicing a bunch of SC questions.

These are all fantastic, but maybe a little to thorough for me. I just can't study and remember all of these idioms

Does anyone know if there is a seriously condensed set of notes knocking about, with only the most important info?
