Dear chesstitans,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

First of all, about your "required" sources--the OG is a must, MGMAT is truly superb, and the Powerscore Bible is reasonably good on CR.

Veritas, which didn't make your list, has very good resources as well.

I would argue that what Magoosh offers is every bit as good as, if not better than, other private sources on the market. Here is our testimonial page.

Here's a free Magoosh math lesson:
Multiples
Here's a free Magoosh verbal lesson:
Substantive Clauses

Here's a free Magoosh DS question:
Circle & Triangle
Here's a free Magoosh SC question:
American cryptanalysts
When you submit your answer for each, the following page will have a complete video explanation. Each one of Magoosh's 1000+ GMAT practice questions has its own VE, and this kind of immediate feedback, question by question, is precisely what accelerates learning.

I hope this information is helpful.

Mike :-)

I am thankful that I can know something from you so that I can have a better decision. I am done with veritas. Surely, I will review it sometimes.

Hey chesstitans ,

I believe GMAT Score matters upto a certain point. Post that all matters is the profile.

New language depends on the school you are applying. If you are applying to European countries(say), you may get an added advantage over another person who has exactly the similar profile because third language is always an added advantage for recruitment.

For others, it really doesn't matter alot. I could see you already have a 700. If you feel your target school score range falls under this, make other parts of your application very strong else work on your GMAT.

Although I am the youngest of all you tagged in, I believe a decade ago it would have been very easy for people. No competition and very less candidates looking for an MBA.

I wonder what would happen a decade later from now. Schools will say bring 800 else go home. :P

All the best :)

Great post, abhimahna! Though I would be really, really upset if this prediction comes true:

I'm praying that the GMAT score arms-race chills out a little bit. Average scores at some of the top U.S. schools are close to 740 now. That's nuts.

I'll stop complaining now.

I'm thrilled that you're still hanging out with us in the verbal forums, abhimahna!

Thank you GMATNinja :)

Yeah, things have started working out for me and it's decided that I am traveling for my MBA next year. So, maybe a few days more and I am back with answering questions directed to you. ;)

Dear chesstitans,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

I see that two of my brilliant colleagues, abhimahna and GMATNinja, gave you thoughtful responses. I'm going to take a different tack.

My friend, there is something absurd about asking such a big question of someone else. Yes, up to a point you should get advice on strategies, but at a certain point, it's no longer about strategy--it's about who you are. Who are you? What is your life about? What statement are trying to make with your life? What is the vision that guides you? What is the deep intention that undergirds all that you do? Nobody else can give you answers to such questions, and the more clearly you can get on the answers to these questions, the more you will stand head and shoulders above most B-school applicants.

You have to understand the "why" behind all of your choices. See this Simon Sinek TED talk. As long as you are making choices to impress other people, you are not living; furthermore, people often feel this and are not impressed any way. You have to make choices that are deeply congruent with who you are and what your life is about. If you live firmly that way and can communicate that, people will be blown away!

Don't learn another language because it would look good, because it would impress someone else. Learn another language if you absolutely have to in order to walk the path you intend to walk. Learn another language if not learning it meant you couldn't become the person you need to become.

People who live from the outside in are often dissatisfied and find success elusive. People who live from the inside out often have a satisfaction that is not contigent on outer success, and ironically, such an attitude more readily leads to success.

Does all this make sense?
Mike :-)

No one list to memorize. Just keep in mind few idioms and the most common.

For the rest, rely on the logic and meaning of the question. Memorize is a total waste of time.

As usual, I agree with my Italian brother carcass on this. In general, the GMAT is designed to be mostly memorization-proof. You've all probably heard me say this a half-billion times, but the section is called "verbal reasoning", not "grammar and reading" -- so sure, it's useful to know some basics of grammar, but the really important thing on SC is the logic and meaning of the question.

Besides, there are about 25,000 idioms in English, and you'll have no hope of memorizing enough of them to make a big difference. It certainly doesn't hurt to learn idioms when you encounter ones you don't already know, but no list of idioms is going to transform your verbal score. More on idioms here: https://gmatclub.com/forum/experts-topi ... 41848.html.

I hope this helps... and for anybody who's following this thread, please let us know what you think of Souvik's question in the post right above this one! :)

GMATNinja, carcass. I believe your replies are great.
Nevertheless, since I am an international student, and idiom is sth that I barely know, I do not know how I improve my idiom skill.
Situation 1: if I sign up a gmat prep course, how do I know that I learn enough idiom from the prep course?

Situation 2: given that I have complete ESL 6, how do I check what idiom I still do not know?

Pls help me.

Never before had the e-business industry faced as many financial losses and employee cutbacks as they had in the late 1990s.

a. faced as many financial losses and employee cutbacks as they had

b. had to face as many financial losses and employee cutbacks as they had

I checked on this question, and there's no source listed for it -- and it almost certainly is not an official GMAT question. And that's probably why the thread was locked: if the question is not from a reputable source, then we really don't want hard-working test-takers wasting their time on it. :-)

The question seems to be an attempt to mimic this classic OG question: https://gmatclub.com/forum/qotd-in-no-o ... l#p1963042. If you're clear about what happens in the official question, you're all set.

There really is no such thing as "idiom skill", unless you're talking about English skills in general. Again, there are 25,000 idioms in English, so your knowledge of idioms will naturally accompany better English skills. If you read a lot of high-quality texts English, you'll get better at EVERYTHING in English -- including idioms. If you have tons of time on your hands, I suppose that you could try to memorize some of the lists that are out there, but as I've said repeatedly, I think memorizing idioms is a painfully inefficient way to improve your SC results.

In general, knowledge of idioms correlates very strongly with your fundamental reading skills in English. So if you struggle to understand RC and CR passages in general, odds are good that you also struggle with idioms, and vice-versa. It's not sexy, but the only realistic way to get better at both reading and idioms is to read more high-quality texts.

There are a couple of great GMAT Club threads on reading materials if you're taking a long-term approach to improving your verbal skills. Some wise Ukrainian guy wrote this classic post about books: https://gmatclub.com/forum/books-to-rea ... 76079.html. And a charming Italian fellow wrote this one about periodicals: https://gmatclub.com/forum/the-best-rea ... l#p1232840. Both of the gentlemen who wrote those posts are non-native speakers, and have been through exactly the same thing you're experiencing.

I hope this helps!

I have two General doubts.
1-GENERAL RULE-In case of SANAM pronoun, it can be singular or plural depending on the context of the sentence.
e.g. Some of the students are in the class.
e.g. Some of the water is in the glass.
In all the above sentences-VERB is directly dependent on SUBJECT (students,water)
Then why this sentence is correct-?
"Whereas 80% of firms quoted on some exchanges publish green data, none on the Indonesian and Saudi exchanges does so." SANAM pronoun-NONE SUBJECT- Indonesian and Saudi exchanges
Because the subject is plural,we must use do rather than does.

2-Does he play cricket?
0r
Does he plays cricket?
What is the correct rule for do, does and third person pronoun?
