SC Troubles [#permalink] New post 09 Oct 2007, 10:48
SC has been the silent killer for me. Sometimes I do very well and other times I hit rock bottom with these.


I have reviewed the MGMAT book over several times. I know the basics very well.

However, I still run into serious trouble with SC's. I think this is what killed my last GMAT score and robbed me of my V38. I had only been doing OG SC's that I already knew the answers to. So I think my SC abilities went out the window.

Although the week b/f the GMAT I got a nice verbal on my MGMAT test so I dunno wuts up there.

I just don't feel my SC has improved at all for several weeks now and I don't know why. Like I said MGMAT book doesn't do anything for me anymore. I feel like I can recite the chapters.

I think this website hurts my SC abilities. It's my strongest category, due exclusively to instincts (I don't technically know most of the rules), but I start to second-guess myself when perusing the verbal board.

Maybe all of the debate over SC questions posted on this site throw off the gut feel you've developed with your extensive studying.

Just throwing the possibility out there. Good luck!

I can completely relate to the whole SC thing...
GMATBLACKBELT- have you tried the Brutal SC yet? If so, how're you doing on those? So far, i don't to too well on those.
I find myself having good days and bad days in SC as well. Not consistent.

If you're running out of new SC exercises, I would recommend the ones in Manhattan Review's Verbal book:

Course books:

They give you a good deal of practice on the more difficult aspects of sentence correction--verb tense, idiom, etc.
