EXPERTS PLEASE DO REPLY!!! I need you all urgently!
Fear and anxiety make us work hard for an exam but in GMAT land, they are the perfect recipe for disaster. GMAT is as much a game of nerves as skill. Look at the bright side - what is the worst case scenario? You will not get the score you desire and will need to retake it. So what? Most people take it at least twice. Also, you can retake it in a month's time so its not like you will have to wait a year (the way it happens for some other exams). So throw away the shouty capitals and try to calm down.
As for SC, we have a whole book dedicated to it (as do other test prep providers) so there is hundreds of pages worth of material. It's not possible to condense it all in a post and that too without knowing what it is that you are missing. There are tons of sentence correction related posts on our blog: http://www.veritasprep.com/blog/?s=sent ... on&x=3&y=7
All of them will give you insights on how to solve SC questions accurately. Lots of posts have great ideas e.g. 'Meaning matters', 'Colorless Green Ideas', 'You be the judge on Sentence Correction', 'De-clutter the sentence', 'Use Decision Points', 'SC for Non Natives' etc. Check them out.
