I have been practicing SC for about 2 weeks after spending a weekend to read up Manhatten SC book. Since then I have completed OG 11 and OG Verble Review Scs and completed first 100 of SC1000 series. I kept error log and studied my mistakes so far.

However, the problem is I am not feeling confident enough with rate of my improvement in SC. After OG11 I started noticing some improvement but after jumping into SC1000, I am starting to see my errors increase a bit.

Moreover, I am just not able to get my hands on "a script" to improve consistantly as in most of the errors its style or idiom or meaning that I miss.

I was wondering how the experience of other members who have gone through much more practice have been, I am bit dis heartened, may be its fatigue and time to move to Math or CR, but its just not working out for me yet.. my error rate remains steady at 5 erros at every 25 questions.

Any thoughts or guidance will be greatly appreciated. Thanks. :evil:

Welcome to u ! :)

My case is problably special compared with u : non native speaker and at a medium level of english. :)

So, to give u an idea about my preparation, it's only after having done 1 time the 1000SC document that I felt some real improvments. I had built a XLS file with my self interpretations of the GMAT tested rules. Also, I had completed this 1000SC document very fastly, peaking to 100 SCs a day. Then, I have completed it 3 times more :)

That's my personnal case... Perhaps, u need much less but in any circumstance : trust in u & organize u to kill this GMAT. U can do it ! :D :)... Others, including me, have done it ! :D :)

I think your error rate of 20% in SC after only 2 weeks is quite impressive. If you can perform that in your exam, all power to you! The best way to increase your SC skills is to analyze each question (even those that you had right) in OG and know why something is correct or wrong. Then you should adopt your knowledge to SC1000 to improve your time management and efficency. Otherwise you are only testing yourself. best regards!

thanks guys, that really helps, I just discovered this forum for couple of weeks but its one of the best things I have seen.

I think SC1000 practice is very useful, fig, I am also not native english speaker btw, so dont worry you will get there, I just have spent long enough time in english speaking country now that I can deal with it somewhat..I will keep plowing through SC1000 for now and may be start doing some quant drills for a change, I am yet to touch CR and RC so we will see how that goes.
