Can anyone give me some advice on how to have a final improvement in SC? I have used MGMAT SC guide, and my efficiency is now close to 80%. After finishing the guide I practiced a lot, but couldn't improve. Any suggested study plan for 40 days?

Hi miguelmick,

The next phase after going through all the relevant material and practice tests for SC is the pattern recognition. I hope you have done all the hard work but some time you would be stuck between two options very close to each other. Then you can use the pattern recognition approach or you can try to read the mind of the writer. This strategy needs some confidence and a little practice. Try to find out what mistake the writer wants you to make. Isn't it funny?? But give this approach a try.

I had the same issue. After completing the MGMAT SC book, I had all the rules but did not know how to apply them rules. I started with the OG questions. I feel that the OG has excellent explanations for the SC part. Start doing some questions, may be 10 per day and make sure you go though the answer explanations in OG. They are awesome and taought me to actually 'crack' SC.

Yes, I agree with heygirl. Stick to OG questions as you don't want to practice with lower quality questions that might confuse you further. Here's a video explanation you might like.

Budget time for 10 questions per day but also budget time to redo questions you got wrong the previous day. Try to do them in random order, backwards and forwards. Over time, you'll have a cumulative improvement by compounding each day's learning with the previous day's learning. Hope that helps!

agree, i'd like to add that an error log by ourselves may help in this case. at least, it works for me.
