Man,

Yes, i too found SC very difficult in the beginning!!
But now, after getting used too i save time by doing SC very fast and almost get 15/18 correct!!

this is how i did!!

I used Princeton review for SC and tried to distinguish questions explained in the 8 types in the book!!
If u need i ll give u the collection of questions too invery section............say, misplaced modifiers, tense, parallel construction,Idioms,comparision etc.,

Do concentrate much on Idioms which I feel the most tough!
All the best~!

John

May i add a few words
Participate in forum discussions ,regardless of time constraints.
knowing why you are right and why you are not is ,according to me, one
of the best ways to learn SC.

see what works for you
thanks

I agree with Pretorian.
Participating in forum is the best substitution for workshops (Kaplan,etc).
You can share your brainstorming with other members and you are able to analyse their ways to an answer.
So, take a part... :)

Two recommended books to help you conquer SC:

1) Grammar Smart. It has all the English grammar rules and will also be very useful to you when you write your essays. SC is all about the grammar, baby!

2) Verbal Workout, from Princeton Review. Like the other guy experienced, it will work wonders for you. There are quite a few practice questions in it. If you don't have the OG, btw, you should get that for the practice questions. But definitely use the PR book to figure out how to get the SC questions right.
