I'm wondering what the best way to go at is. Do you read the 1st sentence and try and figure out the meaning and/or look for mistakes? Do you glance over all the sentences and check out the differences?

Re: How do you approach a SC question? [#permalink] New post 19 Dec 2010, 20:34
I remember it was mentioned in SC Grail that In sentence correction,you don't read the options horizontally,but rather you read the options vertically . When I read that for the first time, it seemed a little weird but then I realized the importance of this strategy. It really helps you eliminate options quickly instead of having to read each option and trying to see whether it fits or not.
But before you apply this strategy, you must make sure that you have understood the correct meaning of the sentence.

My $0.02:

1. Use the split-resplit method for starters manhattan-gmat-split-and-re-split-method-106198.html. This is what is meant as the vertical scan by the above poster.

2. Try to identify keywords which can help spot possible errors. Some examples (a) it/they/them etc will signify pronoun error (b) and will signify parallelism (c) than, more, greater will signify comparison etc.

3. Over and above using grammar rules, try to rely on logic i.e. what the sentence is trying to convey. Many a times people lose track of this in pursuit of grammatical flaws.

4. Preposition signify an idiom is lurking around. Ensure that you mug up any decent idiom book (part of any preparatory guide) and remember them well.

5. If there are long modifier then ensure they modify the current noun or verb. Once done, try striking them off and ensure you are not left with run-on sentences or fragments.

These are just some tips you need to remember when trying spot a sentence. As you practice more I am sure you will come up with your own list.
