What do you think will get one past 40V?
I'll let you know when I find it!!! I've scored past 40 on one or two third party CATs (800score and an ARCO) and I scored way past 40V on the two PowerPrep (but people say PP is "easy") but SC is still my weakness; generally the only questions I get wrong are SC. maybe one or two CR/RC.
I think Manhattan is a great book, don't get me wrong... but there are some subtle things that either I am not getting, or the book is not giving me. IMHO, I think hunkering down with any grammar book and really getting into it from the basics is what I need.
I bought the Powerscore book, which so far seems to be just that - a more in depth approach. Although I am a bit wary as I think have found a mistake in the book! a minor mistake, but in a grammar book, one would expect the grammar to be precise at all times!
They have a grammar review as one of the first chapters, and the section on indirect/direct objects tells us to "ask who or what received the direct object" "who received the verb" we should as "WHOM" received the verb, as the pronoun WHOM is an object case pronoun (I credit that knowledge to Manhattan SC)
