Not able to narrow down to single option in SC [#permalink] New post 13 Apr 2013, 04:25
I am having a problem in SC. For 70 % of the questions, I am narrowing them to 2 options. But picking up the wrong choice :( .

I completed e-gmat SC. Now doing the MGMAT SC and Grockit verbal.

How can i pick the correct option :) ? How can i improve my practice ?

When you find yourself in this position, you need to be able to categorize the issue you missed on that guess between the final two (i.e. modifier, pronoun, meaning, etc.). The explanation for the question should help you categorize the issue. As you categorize the issues you are missing, look for patterns to find your areas of weakness. Once you know where you are weak, you can focus your studies on those topics to improve your performance.

It's good to know that you are taking MGMAT SC. When you attempt any of the SC questions, whichever option you chose as the right one, you provide your reason for chosing it against your answer. GMAT SC has a set of rules that they are going to test. Once you start writing the reason for chosing the option, you compare it with the reason given by MGMAT. That'll help you get more out of each question. Sometimes, even you get the correct answer, the reason that you gave to elect the right answer may be wrong. If you get a similar question, it is likely that you are going to make mistake. Try this method. It helped me.

Great info in that previous post. It reminds me that I should emphasize reviewing your work. For each question (not just those you got wrong) you need to review the explanation thoroughly to make sure you understand each element that is being tested. The better you review your work, the easier it will be to apply your practice to future problems.
