MGMAT SC [#permalink] New post 07 May 2008, 10:25
Hi guys,
As everyone is aware of the fact that Manhattan SC is considered a bible for GMAT SC. I have Manhattan SC Strategy guide which I have gone though a couple of times. However, today I came across Manhattan Review Sentence Correction Guide. Which one is referred to as the bible of SC - SC Strategy guide or SC Guide.
I found Strategy guide to be a lot more concise than SC Guide. SC Guide starts from basics. I would have loved to go start from basics but unfortunately it might be too late for me now. I have GMAT scheduled for June 3rd.
Is SC Guide worth devoting some time now or should i stick to strategy guide?

Wow...thats news.
I thought there was just one. I have 2005 edition that goes by ISBN 974806951
Thats pretty detailed and seems to be called Strategy guide.
Even if you have other one...I guess content may not be mutually exclusive. Just scan it and see if it provides a 'great' value based on how your are doing on SC. If youhave other areas to improve upon that give better ROI for time....then do that...I guess you can best answer this question for yourself.

Thanks kyatin.
Yeah, the difference is that the SC guide starts from basics. Having it initially would have definitely improved my understanding of strategy guide. Strategy guide is more like a crash course - good to go through on the last day. I am anyways going through the guide and just making bulleted notes of whatever specific I come across. Don't know how much would that help, but just for mental peace :)
I got 4/14 SCs wrong on last MGMAT CAT :(.

4/14 is not bad buddy. but it could be based on what you are shooting for and how you do on CR/RC.
Also see how much time you spent on those...you want to leverage SCs to get some help on time.
Good luck.

Yeah, timing is another worry for me. I am spending close to 2 minutes per SC on an average. Doing equally bad in CR (4/14) and worse in RC (because of loosing time on SC). That is ruining my score. Got 39 on verbal on last MGMAT CAT (I went 10 mins overtime :) )
Tried everything to improve on CR and RC and I can just try to maintain my current hit rate on them. SC is something that can be improved.

I am going through the purple one currently. It starts from basics and is worth going through it in the initial stages of preparation. It just helps you grasp the concepts in the red one (strategy guide) better.

I don't see a SC specific book from Manhattan Review:

http://www.manhattanreview.com/gmat-book-material/

I see a Manhattan Review verbal guide.

Plus this thread is almost two years old.
