More verbal exercises? [#permalink] New post 05 Aug 2011, 08:58
Hey guys...
I noticed that there are tons of exercises for math (25 sets in the Gmat Club Test section alone). However, I need more exercises for the verbal section because I have already done the Manhattan Gmat Verbal stuff and the official guides. The issue I am having are the varying qualities of questions. I can't do the 1000 toughest Gmat SC questions because often the OA is not verified and I don't have the time to read through 5 pages of explanations and guesses. The Kaplan material I encounter also doesn't meet the quality standard I was hoping for... So what I need are more exercises form trusted sources... Any recommendations? Thanks!

OG12/Verbal Review
Aristotle RC99/SC Grail
Brutal SC
GMAC Paper Tests(No explanation)
Aristotle CR

Guess, that's more than enough.

Like I said, I did the OG and the Verbal review and I don't like the Gmat Club Brutal questions, because the explanations are often very lengthy, unclear and/or disputed...
But I didn't know Aristotle RC99/SC Grail, so thanks for that... Any other recommendations for Verbal exercises?

Did you review all the explanations for all the 5 options in every question of OG esp. Verbal including ones you got right ?

If so and have internalized the pattern, you do not need anything else....Just review the concepts/questions, try GC/BTG questions and write practice tests with proper review...

What's GC/BTG? And again, which Verbal tests from third party publishers do you recommend? I don't want to study material that contradicts the OG or has unclear answers..

For the uninitiated,GC is GMATClub - The forum right here were you are posting your questions expecting a good answer.
BTG is "beatthegmat" - A reputed test prep similar to GC, but having many more experts...
Both send out questions daily by email if you subscribe.
Also there are 25/30 GC Maths tests and 6 Verbal GC Tests at http://gmatclub.com/tests/

Yes there are materials that contradict OG, but for Quant it is always better to check other sources...
