Do verbal sets 21-30 in 75 minutes. They are great even though often times they don’t have correct answers. Wrong answers can be frustrating but sets are very representative of the types of questions you’ll see on the real test plus you can always search for the correct answers on the forums.

Once you learned the concepts, focus on strategy, such as 2/3 splits, scanning the choices for an error tested, etc. I can’t emphasize enough that one should learn the concepts first and then learn the tricks. Knowing only the tricks will not get you far. GMAT questions are designed to fool you, so learn your basics first. Then practice, practice, and practice again! There is tons of material out there. Try 1000 SCs and the brutal SCs (see the attachement).

Nervous, first off thank you for posting this. It puts the verbal section of the GMAT into perspective for me. However I'm not sure which 'sets' you are writing about. Also, where can I find the '1000 SCs'?

friends,

I am looking for 1000 sc questions that have been mentioned so many times.

I was wondering if somebody can tell me as to how to get them.

Buddy, regarding idioms, did you actually sit down and memorize them?

I did the only way to learn them if you are not a native speaker!
I recommend using the idiom in a sentence as opposed to simply learning it as a phrase. That way you will remember the idiom better.

I actually am a native speaker and, thus far, I have been taking my verbal practice tests armed purely with gut reaction. I have been averaging around 39-45 V scores. I feel overwhelmed when I think about learning all the rules and what clauses and associations are supposed to be called. I am doing pretty good right now but I get so bored when I go through a general grammatical review. Is there anything that you can think of that I could do besides starting from the basics. I feel like I have heard these rules a thousand times and I just can't handle it.
