I am uploading another doc ... the first one seems to be empty...

I am not sure if this is the same doc that has been uploaded.

This has examples for almost all of the idioms


Thanks 8-)

Isn't it amazing that we'll have to know all these and many more? Albeit, i believe it's worth the effort, not just for the exams, but for the future. :arrow: thanks Roc.

Great stuff :beer

I can't believe that it has taken me all this while to discover this link. I'd encourage everyone to take enough time to review the various forums. It looks like there's more information here than most of us have imagined.

I can hear my SC improving already :-D

From the Freen Online Dictionary - re: forbid... USAGE: It was formerly considered incorrect to talk of forbidding someone from doing something, but in modern usage either from or to can be used: he was forbidden from entering/to enter the building.

That said, this being GMAT SC, I would go with "forbid TO."

Note though that it is "prohibit FROM."
