Hi all, I am new to this forum. I appeared my first mock exam which was from the GMAT prep software (Exam1). I did terrible in verbal and there is no particular pattern I could identify going wrong in SC, CR or RC. I will post the question I am seeking help on. Share your thoughts if anyone recently appeared for Exam 1

Hey Disha,

Can you let me know how much did you get and what percentage of your CR and SC you got wrong?
That might give me some food for thought and I can suggest you something

Regards,
Ankur

For SC, i would suggest you to start with MGMAT SC. Read the rules, memorize them and you will sail through.
Solve the problems here in GMAT Club SC section. They are very helpful.
What is the breakup?

And when are you planning to give the GMAT?

For SC nothing beats Manhattan SC and Aristotle SC grail... Just go through them thoroughly and you will see the improvement in your SC.

Your CR and RC seems to be fine .

I was sailing in same boat but now SC is a bit better than before.

Thanks Ankur & Abhinav. I did my initial round of reading from SC Grail....I do not understand but in some questions i apply parallelism right, in others i do not. the same goes for tenses related problems...i guess more of practice should help here..

Hey Disha,

I would suggest you to go through the rules first from MGMAT SC.
You can follow the following steps if you like:

1. Read the Rules.
2. Make the notes in your notebook.
3. Solve the problems related to that chapter from OG and Verbal Review.
4. Apply the rules in the mock tests.

This will help you for sure :)

Regards,
Ankur
