hi, I m feeling disheartened after getting 75% of SC questions in OG wrong.I found them too tough.Is it me or others also feel the same way?
75% is kinda high in my opinion but don't beat yourself up.
Sentence correction is easy to learn, all you need to do is remember few key factors. I suggest you summarize all the different approach's (Modification, parallelism etc...) and work with what you just summarized while answering. after 50 questions you will remember most of the tricks you need and continue without even looking at the summery.
It worked for me and im not a native speaker.
I attempted OG 13
(i believe there to be a considerable overlap b/w 12 and 13 ) and got 124 questions correct out of the 140 (SC) .. My breakup was , 11 wrong in the first 100 .. and the remaining wrong b/w 100-140 . I am not sure how to interpret this , and whether to invest in more material for SC prep or to move on. I have covered parts of the MGMAT SC
guide, and read the SC chapter in the KAPLAN
GMAT premier (and taken the quiz that is included) ...I am in the process of creating an error log
of my mistakes from the OG and to see whether their is a pattern to the TYPE of questions that i got wrong.
I would appreciate if someone could recommend a sourse for extra questions for Sentence correction ..( I am all ready looking at the appropriate section on the forum for questions)
Aristotle SC has 100 SC questions at the end and is a very good guide too. the difference between Aristotle and MGMAT is that Aristotle is more straight to the point then MGMAT. MGMAT expands your knowledge and has more depth than Aristotle (IMO of course).
When I started to work on my SC skills, I first went through MGMAT and then Aristotle and i feel much stronger now.
BTW, there are alot of SC questions here in the forum as well...
If my answer helped, dont forget KUDOS!
