Expert's post
If you're simply looking for practice problems, rather than instruction, you should start with real GMAT problems. The Official Guide is the way to go: http://www.amazon.com/Official-Guide-GM ... 294&sr=8-1

That's going to be more than enough problems for most people's needs. Some of my students have run through all the problems in the OG, as well as the related Verbal Review supplement, and found themselves wanting more. However, you are better off "fully digesting" these problems by identifying the different issues at play, and analyzing each answer choice carefully. If you take the time to do this for the OG and any practice exams you take, and you have a solid source for GMAT-related grammar instruction (I humbly suggest Manhattan GMAT's Sentence Correction strategy guide), you shouldn't need any additional problems.

Best of luck!

There has been some positive feedback for the Aristotle SC book posted on this forum. The guide comes with 100 SC practice questions, and these can also be bought separately.

I have the same question.

I have SC Grail. Their strategies are compact and somewhat like a shorter n simpler version of MGMAT. The book is okay but the 100 questions are not that great. The english is very simple and the answers too obvious. I had 90-95% accuracy. They are good enough just to brush up the basics not great practice material.

SC questions in OG are way more advanced, even the simple onces. As a non-native english speaker, I too am looking for standard material for SC practice, other than the OG's n supplements!

Any ideas?

I also find the questions of Aristotle too easy! Do not reflect the real GMAT level. Just look for Brutal SC in this forum!

Manhattan SC and Aristotle SC for concepts and for practice don't look beyond this forum. The 100 Brutal SC and 1000 SC questions are more than enough. Ensure that you review the explanations though as it will help you eliminate the wrong answers quickly.

Trying to revive an old thread. Brutal SC, GMAT Prep SC doc, 1000 SC etc. are all great material except that they overlap with OGs or Prep software.

So has anyone found any other good practice material that doesn't overlap with official questions?

MGMAT is one option.

I recommend the PowerScore GMAT Sentence Correction Bible book for a good comprehensive collection of SC rules and related drills. http://www.amazon.com/PowerScore-GMAT-S ... 023&sr=8-1

I think DmitryFarber is being too humble about his recommendation. Manhattan SC and Powerscore CR are two must-have books IN ADDITION TO the OG12 & 2nd Verbal Edition. Powerscore's CR book rocks! I've been thru Manhattan's CR, and it pales in comparison. On the other hand, Manhattan's SC rocks!
