Before I post my question, I would like to share some information about me.

I'm not a native English speaker, so Verbal-SC is the toughest part for me.

Previously back in 2010 I had taken online course and on completion of course I was lagging way behind in SC, so left it that way. My Quanta concepts were good and I was comfortable with OG questions as well.

Recently in Sep-2012 I started back with GMAT prep, beginning with SC. I went through a basic Grammar Book to understand basic Parts of Speech. Thereafter, I was stuck where to start next. Anyhow I started with Ultimate GMAT Grammar Book, but have been again stuck at Basic section-1 - as I find it too exhaustive. It doesn't seems feasible to absorb all the concepts listed.

Right now I'm feeling too depressed as to why I can't progress further. For over a month of study so far, I'm still neither able to gather pace nor confidence.

I would greatly appreciate if someone could advise me where should I begin my prep for SC. I have the following materials:

Ultimate GMAT Grammar Book
MGMAT Verbal Foundation
Aristotle SC Grail
Kaplan GMAT Verbal foundations
Powerscore SC Guide
MGMAT SC Guide


Thanks,
Sam

Be patient is all I can say, it takes 2, 3 months for a non native speaker to become comfortable with the concepts.
I would say read MGMAT SC first few chapters and see if you face any major issues. Whenever you are stuck refer to Kaplan Verbal Foundation/MGMAT Foundation or any other grammar book. The basic goal is to Master MGMAT SC by reading it a number of times. Once you are done its all about practice. The other books are subsets of MGMAT SC. So once you are done MGMAT SC , the rest will flow.

Thanks AbhiJ for replying.

Earlier I had gone through MGMAT SC and failed to grasp the content and its application to OG questions. Moreover applying the concepts in 90seconds was way too much for me. That is when I gave up completely.

Currently I have started again with MGMAT Verbal Foundation to concentrate on SC portion and build up my confidence to start with MGMAT SC.

However, I'm still wondering at what stage one should go through Ultimate GMAT Grammar Book, and am looking forward for a reply.

Thanks,
Sam
