How did you use the MGMAT SC book? [#permalink] New post 27 Dec 2010, 08:23
Hi, this question is for those who achieved a great score and used the MGMAT SC.
I would like to know how you used the book. Did you memorize the rules or just read it and inmediately practiced the questions?
Which was the best way for you?
I make this question because the difference between these 2 methods is TIME in the preparation.

Thanks!

Personally, I found the MGMAT SC book TOO convoluted for my liking - yes, their strategies are all-encompassing, but a bit overwhelming as well. But I'd recommend reading through the chapters first and doing their exercises first. Then, use the MGMAT OG Tracker and do all the OG problems and see where your hit rate is good/bad and go back and review those parts again. Personally, I had issues with parallelism when there'd be, say, two clauses of parallelism and I'd always pick an answer that went with the broader one, but the right answer would be the one that is parallel to the closest word. Simple things like that.
