Hey,

I felt that the strategies are crisp. But the SC question contents are not equally good.

If you read already Manhattan SC you might also find an overlap. But surprisingly after reading Aristotle SC i started understanding Manhattan SC in much better way.

hi Alchemist - the book has grammer (~30 pages crisp not too boring) + common GMAT errors (~60 pages awesome!) + idioms (~40 pages) followed by 100 Questions and their explanations. I think its a good buy for the price but as someone mentioned there is an overlap between MGMAT SC and SC Grail. I have both and have done ~50 questions from SC Grail till now.

This is great SC supplement to your main SC book - MGMAT SC or Powerscore SC. I would not say it is a replacement by any means, but having said that, this book contains most of the tricky concepts of GMAT SC.

I did OG12 and OG Verbal; each time I would get to the end questions, while trying to maintain the pace, I would loose my accuracy. So I analysed why the heck it's happening - at this point I feel like I have a good grasp on most of the grammar rules - and noticed that it was primary not because I was making any Grammar error, but rather it was because I would miss the meaning of the sentence, making my choice illogical although grammatically correct. Sometime these SCs are tricky and most grammatically correct sentence would be illogical. Anyways, what I mean is: Aristotle SC problem set contains all such tricky answer choices, which trap you while you are trying to maintain the pace by finding an answer quickly, and thus gives you a good practice. I have done like 40 problems so far, and I believe it has helped me a lot. I am hoping to finish it this weekend.

Good luck!

You should really go through each answer choice while analyzing your answers to see why that choice was not correct. Plus, I recommend to visit MGMAT forums to read explanations from Stacey & Ron - they just provide brilliant mind blowing reasoning!

In addition, while analyzing answer, I also try to remember whether I could have approached this question differently in terms of process/method. Lately, ive started doing it for all my practice question. What I man is that - could I have used last underlined word to split answer choices or perhaps some middle word, did I keep track of sentence's meaning while correcting it grammatically. this extra awareness while
practicing has helped my accuracy. Good luck,
