God, this is the best topic on here! I myself am using Powerscore RC and like it. Its not for GMAT, but has lots of RC questions. Also have LR, but that book is too too big. Maybe when finished I can tell you guys if I liked it.

@conquistador
Hey just need a clarification.....How the following sentence should be written
"God, this is the best topic on here!"
I was under assumption that it is always, out there and in here.
So, it should be "God, this is the best topic in here!".
Can anyone comment on this, as which one is right?

Good luck to everyone on the Verbal section!
English is my first language but I think the CR/RC questions are very hard.
I like the fact that SC is somewhat predictable and I only need to apply a set of rules I know already.
I can't do that with the other two sections. I can rely on the fact that there are certain patterns but the patterns don't apply 100% of the time for RC or CR.
I've been using Kaplan's test materials but it seems like that there are some really good resources here, such as Manhattan GMAT.

OK, just finished Powerscore RC Bible. I think it's good, but maybe not needed for people already strong in RC. Since it has a decent number of practice questions, I won't buy the Superprep questions.

Howdy all? Any updates ?


I did OG Verbal for RC after Powerscore RC. I heard OG Verbal is an easy book, but I'm still pleased! I already started Powerscore LR and it's good. I don't want to wait to do all three books, so I combine book with an OG section so it will stay in my head. That's it so far!!!!

Revise CR concepts again.. Take a break, do not practice CR, just revise powerscore CR or any other CR source you have followed.

Updates : I m currently revising Mgmat SC and official guide. (accuracy of 65%).
I need to work really hard to improve SC. Modifiers and pronouns are my weakest area and I have decided to tackle them separately for 2-3 days.

My accuracy for CR in Og was very good initially but was quite lower for the initial hard questions , so I have decided to revise CR bible again after SC.
I m progressing , but at a very low rate.

Guys: please update.

Will start Manhattan SC tomorrow. Finally finished the Powerscore books, so I feel strong in RC and LR now. I'm finished with math books too, so just SC now and some OG.

Hello Friends,

What about an idea of posting the key points of what you have studied on particular day(or over a period of 3-4 days). It can be very brief, may be ranging from one liner to five liners. Believe me it would not take more than 10 minutes and it would be of immense help because we do study a lot of things, but usually we forget after a week or two. By this approach, we would be able to keep in memory the things we studied previously without affecting the topic we are currently concentrating on.

@Gurpreet : What you say? You are the one who started this thread :-D

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rakesh

P.S.: Post can be like
1. What are the traps one should avoid while answering particular type of CR questions?
2. Something you have studied about pronouns, modifiers or anything germane to the topic.

Today I went through the conditionals sentences. I am sharing the information garnered today:

The conditionals can be classified into three types:
If clause .....Main clause
1. If + present .....future(result) [If he comes to the market, I will meet him]
2. If + past .....would + verb(result)[If you practised hard, you could pass the exam]
3. If + past perfect .....would + have + past participle(result)[If Rohan had come to my house, I would have given him the money]

Now, look at the common errors in the usage of conditionals:
1. If I will pass the exam, I will get admission in the college [Wrong]
If I pass the exam, I will get admission in the college[Right]
2. If I had been there, I would avert the accident[Wrong]
If I were there, I would avert the accident or
If I had been there, I would have averted the accident [Right]
3. If I would have a degree from a top b-school, I would get a great happiness[Wrong]
If I had a degree from a top b-school, I would get a great happiness.[Right]

Looking forward to hearing from you. If it helps, I would continue[wrong sentence].
If it helps, I will continue. :)

Rax:Great Idea Rax !! What we can do is, we can edit our previous posts to include more information. It will be easy to follow this way. Next day just edit your previous post and share your learning.

Hi All? Whats up guys?

I have tried all sorts for Verbal ,and I m concluding that we can not improve verbal unless we read a lot of good english literature.
Follow the Gmat Fiction created by BB and read as much as you can.

Yep.

I found this to be most true. Sure learning grammar and solving SC and CR problems like they are math is relatively simple, but RC is a pain if you have a hard time reading through the little details.

Personally I've spent past two years reading, reading and more reading. Plus, practice makes it perfect.


At the rate I'm going with reading, it looks like I'll be ready for GMAT sometime in December.
