How is SC "systematic"? [#permalink] New post 28 Sep 2013, 09:02
I've heard people from Kaplan and this board both tout the ease of SC, once you learn the "errors", provided that it is very systematic. Kaplan instructors have told me they have a process that makes it simple. I have the MGMAT books but TBH I don't really see any "system" here. All it really is is, look for splits and judge based on splits, and look for the various common errors as divided into chapters in the MGMAT book. But that doesn't really seem "systematic" to me at all, especially when some of the answer possibilities are written entirely different (which is common).

Maybe I haven't practiced these enough to "feel" how systematic this process can be, but I don't know. Am I missing something here or what?

Systematic is a funny word -- it implies a cut and dry approach. I think what most would tell you is that there are a lot of key themes that come up in Sentence Correction -- learn those themes, and get comfortable with some of the unique items (idioms, etc.) and I think you'll feel like you've got a plan in place.

I use the analogy of accumulating tools for your toolbox -- once you have enough tools for SC, you've got yourself a system.

Hope that helps.

-Brian

Yeah so I get it now. I've been plowing away at SC stuff. Basically I've gone through the MGMAT SC book two or three times, but I went through it an additional time and after each chapter did the practice questions and then the OG questions for that chapter. That really helped clarify all of the issues. I'm going through the rest of the OG problems, then I'm probably just going to skim through the MGMAT SC book again and review the idioms a few more times, but I'm getting like 95% of problems correct. Just takes time and consistency!
