I have been trying to solve sentence correction from the 700+ level QBank on GmatClub. My scores are dismal. My scores in the 600-700 level questions are satisfactory. Unsure of how I can make the cut to the next level. Any suggestions?

Hi Sashwath,

To start, it might be that what you're focusing on right now might not actually be what you need to be working on to score at a higher level. Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

I have been using Sentence correction from Manhattan and OG primarily. I am looking for sources that outline the most common question types in the section.

Have you identified which types of SC questions are giving you problem? If there is a particular type of question that is restricting your progress then improving on that aspect should help you. I feel practice and reviewing errors is the Mantra to succeed in advanced SC.

I am unable to find material relevant to GMAT that clearly explains parallelism, participles and participial phrases.

Hi Sashwath,

I will highly encourage you to solidify your base in verbal 1st before you start solving OG questions. MGMAT foundation of GMAT Quant anf foundation of GMAT verbal will particularly help you solidify your base. For verbal and especially for SC, I would highly encourage you to consider e-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live course. They are both amazing courses especially designed for non-natives. They offer almost 25% of their courses for free so you can try out their free trial to decide which one you want to go for. Plus the e-gmat Scholaranium which is included in both the courses is one of the best verbal practice tools in the market. You can easily track your progress in that you can identify your strengths and analyze and improve on your weak areas.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practise tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

I would also encourage you to purchase the GMATPREP QP 1 for some great additional practice. Here is a link that will help you with your decision.

Hope this helps. All the best.

Hi Sashwath, since you mention SC as your specific area of concern, thought I would mention that our sentence correction book Sentence Correction Nirvana is perhaps the only book that offers a score improvement guarantee, and is especially designed for non-native speakers.

After reading the book twice (yes! it's an academic book, and so must be read twice in all seriousness, to reinforce the concepts), you will start looking forward to solving SC questions!

The book is available on Flipkart and Amazon.in. You might want to refer to these sites, to also read testimonials of how readers have benefited.

See here how Mohit, who scored 750 on GMAT, vouches for our book.

If you want to sample a chapter before deciding to go ahead with our book, please PM me your mail-id (along with the chapter that you would like to sample) and I will be happy to send that chapter to you by mail. In addition, the entire Grammar section of the book is also available for free preview at pothi.

Manhattan SC Guide is nearly perfect book for SC and all common SC question types are written in it.
Where are you facing problem?
Which type of questions you are getting wrong?
What is the reason for your wrong questions whether you are missing concept behind it?

Hi Sashwath,

Making the jump to getting the 700+ level question lies in your approach to the questions along with knowledge. I would like to know the following from you:

1. How do you approach the questions – do you follow a set process, or the process varies from one question to another?
2. What percentage of times do you make a mistake in identifying the intended meaning of the sentence?
3. What percentage of times do you make a mistake in identifying the error in the original sentence?

I hope you use the meaning-based approach to solve SC questions. GMAT verbal is not a grammar test but a test of logic and it is imperative that you use a logical approach to solve the questions.

    • Rhea shares her GMAT experience wherein the Meaning Based approach helped her nail 2 very difficult SC questions. She scored a V41. Click here to watch her inspiring video interview. Read her de-brief here

Learn the 3-step process to solve 700+ level SC questions with ease

I’m sharing some direct links of free trial material with you which can help you evaluate our course better. More of them (25 video lessons and 380+ practice questions) are available on your free trial dashboard.

Regards,
Aditee
