100 Hardest Sentence Correction Questions

Are you familiar with the GMAT Club's timer? We have pulled timer results from our database and analyzed every question in the forum. Based on those results, we have compiled a list of the hardest questions in each of the question forums we have. Below I am presenting to you the top 100 questions from the SC forums arranged in a descending difficulty order.

A note about difficulty and how we determine the hardest questions - we use the GMAT Club timer and user statistics. We use both % of correct answers as well as the average time used. Though this list is very accurate, please keep in mind that minor shifts are expected over time.

Hi bb,

I'm relatively new to GMAT Club and I've been going through various material posted on this site to aid my practice for GMAT. I've read the MGMAT sentence correction guide and I feel decently comfortable with solving moderate level SC questions. I was looking for some suggestions on how I should be using this list of 100 hardest questions. These questions are hard for sure but for many questions, there are no official answer explanations, and as I go through user comments I get all the more confused because users differ in their choice of answers and explanations. Eventually, I end up not knowing or learning. It'd deeply appreciate if I can be given some guidance on a good way to approach this set of 100 Qs.

There is no value of these questions without explanations from experts.

BB, are these questions from different sources? (MGMAT or other prep companies?) Just wondering if most of them are similar to the actual GMAT material.
Thanks!

Hi bb
This appears to be a great compilation indeed. However, it has a shortcoming. Some of the questions have incorrect answers or have multiple correct answers. May be that is why they have a higher percentage of unsuccessful attempts and / or longer attempt durations. These questions would be much suitable for practice once these have been reviewed by a senior member / moderator.

Thanks a lot for such a comprehensive list. I have a small suggestion for improving this list. If the questions are tagged with the source of the sentence, it would be easy for us to identify the official questions. As there are few questions for which the OA is debatable, we can rule out such questions and the concepts if not in concurrence with GMAT standards.

Thanks Again!!!
