HI Chenchal, did u really try to solve the questions in MGMAT SC. Even if you have finished studying the concepts, you must practice the questions, study the explanations for each options. Try to identify which concept is being tested, then brainstorm and try to come out with the answer. Do not be in a hurry to finish the book. this book has so much of information that it is not possible to absorb everything in one or two reading. try doing this. let me know if this helps

Hi Ankur, I did, things seem fine when I am attempting questions by topic like S-V etc.,. I goof up when I do not know the category it falls under, kind of strange but if I can address this then I think I will be able to get through SC.

Yeah. you are right. However, it is not necessary that you identify the question. By the time you are prepared for the gmat, you will realize that this process of identifying question type becomes secondary in nature. For the time being, practice those questions again. Try to identify to errors. do not guess. try to come out with explanation. this will boost your confidence.

Hi ankurmgr,

That was a great score and an excellent debrief.

Even I am suffering a little bit, especially, in the verbal section. My individual highest scores, in MGMAT CATs, till date have been Q45 and V35. My highest GMAT score has been 640(MGMAT) and my target score is 740. I am a non-native speaker too, residing at chennai. Do you find MGMAT CAT tougher, considering your practice test scores, than GMATPrep and actual GMAT or is it at the same level?

As far as MGMAT SC is concerned, I have not read the idioms list. I just know some of the idioms that I learnt in these forums. Moreover, I have just read MGMAT SC only once and your post has made me rethink my strategy. I will read this book till all the fundamentals become second-natured to me. Having said that, RC has been pulling my score drastically, especially under time constraints. Do you take notes while reading the passage?

Aim for the stars and maybe you'll reach the sky. : NICE LINE
MGMAT CAT quants is definitely not like what u will see on the GMAT or GMAT PREP. MGMAT Verbal is similar to
the actual thing.
You don't need to remember all the idioms given the MGMAT SC guide.
I did not take notes while reading RC. Taking notes consumes lot of time. Practice RC with few questions in mind. Find the structure of the passage, what is the author's subject, author's mood etc. This may take time but practice, practice, practice...
MGMAT SC is a great book. Please go through it as many time as possible. It covers possibly all the topics that are tested on the GMAT SC.
I ll be happy to help..

hi ronit.. I was striking somewhere in between Q46-Q48. I do not appreciate OG-12 if one is aiming > Q49. However, GMATCLUB Tests are great. You can learn many tricks + timing strategy. Hope it helps
