About Aristotle SC Grail [#permalink] New post 02 Nov 2010, 10:30
Hi,

Have a query regarding Aristotle SC Grail.

On reading the product detail in the website,I was under the impression that this is a hardcopy book which is going to be shipped to me.Today,I ordered this online for 15 USD. While ordering, I was asked to provide shipping address etc.But after ordering, I was just granted access to the pdf.

If anyone has experience ordering this material from http://aristotleprep.com/book/aristotle ... tion-grail, please let me know if a hardcopy book will be shipped to me later or is it just the downloadable pdf?

From the site:
Quote:
Here are some of the key features of Aristotle Sentence Correction Grail:
● Provides a quick review of basic grammatical concepts such as nouns, adjectives, verbs, prepositions, gerunds, etc. without going into details that will not be tested on the GMAT
● Detailed analysis of each Sentence Correction error type along with the details of what exactly will be tested in each area and common GMAT traps
● Whenever a concept being discussed has been tested in the Official Guides 12 or 11, the question number of the same has been provided so that the students can actually see how that concept is tested on the GMAT.
● Comprehensive Idiom List (over 200 commonly tested idioms) along with the correct and incorrect usage and OG 12 & 11 reference questions on which these idioms have been tested.
● An entire section on what the GMAT likes and dislikes so as to make it easier to select between two options. Eg. whether and if, like and as, will and would, etc. So while the other books may take you to score of perhaps 600 – 650, if you are targeting a 700+ score, The Aristotle Sentence Correction Grail is a must-read for you! The book is available in electronic format only.On purchasing the book,you'll be able to download a pdf version of the book.

The book is good but if you have MGMAT SC, then I think you don't need to buy this book.

I completed OG 12 and MGMAT SC questions. I think I used these to understand basics. I need more thorough practice for each type of questions. Where would I get more practice resources?

Try Veritas verbal guides. The guides are very good and questions are good representative of real questions.

I am using SC Grail I must tell you that it lives up to the hype it has been generating for the last few months.
The good thing about the book is that it gives you a very systematic approach to Sentence Correction which is quite essential for getting a 700+ .
For eg, when I went through MGMAT SC Guide, I found it to be quite good. The concepts are given really well,but when I set out to do questions,I would invariably be not able to get more than 50% questions correct because I couldn't figure out the complexities of the sentence. After going through SC Grail , I am now quite comfortable with the concepts such as Gerunds,and participles (which used to seem scary earlier ) and by using their approach to read options vertically, now my accuracy has shot up to 90% and am able to eliminate options saying there are has to be parallelism between say Gerunds ,participles .Haha.I feel good. :-D

Great. This is good information for SC grail. I'm actually facing the same situation as you're facing. I grasped the concepts but finding it difficult to apply all of them at once in a sentence. I'll give a try for Aristotle SC Grail.

BB- If many people on this forum feel the same way, can we add this book in recommended books section?

RC99 is quite a good book. It has 99 passages divided over low, medium and high difficulty levels.It kinda came as a Godsend book as apart from the official guides there's not much good material for RC. Even the drawback with the passages in the OG is that the number of questions is usually 6-7 which ain't representative of the actual number of questions you get on the GMAT and as a result you don't feel very enthusiastic about doing them. However,RC99 has only passages and doesn't have strategies for RC . They claim that as such there's no great strategy for RC and reading as varied material for years is the key and if you haven't done that, then RC99 is the alternative as not only will you familiarize yourself intensively with different topics but you'll be tackling questions which are representative of the GMAT questions.
For RC strategies, you can refer MGMAT RC book.

Since they have updated the SC question bank, i have a question: is the question bank in the complete pdf-book the old question bank or the updated one?

I bought all of the Aristotle books and practiced quite a few of them. The RC 99 is good. I will probably give 4 points out of 5. Aristotle released a new set of CR questions recently.

I also liked the grammar part of SC grail.The practice set is good, but not the best. Probably 4/5 for the grammar part and 3/5 for the pratice question.

They also have a set of 100 meaning related questions. I would give 2/5 rating on this. These are all pretty obvious and easy to solve.

I tried few CR questions from the free pdf set. Although, I don't have any strong opinion on these I feel these were not bad.

Anybody knows if there is a difference between 2nd and 3rd Edition of SC Grail? And is it possible to purchase a pdf version of the 3rd Edition? I am from far away and shipping it would be quite costly. Thanks for help.
