Hi everyone
My question is as followed:
“One major strategy to solve a sentence correction problem is to scan the answer choices, to find a 2 -3 way split on a grammatical rule , choose a side and repeat till we have the right answer.
In order to do that efficiently, it is best to highlight the words in all the answer choices that are the subject of the grammatical split. While this strategy works wonderfully on a paper exam, it can't be done on a computerized exam, as you cannot highlight the word on the screen.
So what is the best way to implement the splitting strategy on the day of the exam when facing a computerized format of the exam?
Thank you

Welcome to the gmatclub, jackshirak.

The strategy you mentioned works well on computerized tests also. You just need to practice a bit and you'll develop a habit of this on computer also.

i would label A,B,C,D,E and cross them out accordingly. it is a little work but it helps so you dont need to backtrack. you can also start marking the sheet during the intro as well...
