Hi All,

I am roughly starting Verbal SC again after a long gap of 6 months. (Background - I have been really weak on verbal and scores have been 21 to 24 till the last GMAT test which I gave in November 2018 )

During my prep last time(obviously for SC) I had started with Aristotle book - its a very nice and simple grammar book with 100s of questions; after which I had migrated to OG and then harder questions. I did not know about the Gmat Club Grammar Book then

Now I have recently downloaded it, so what should I do? Re-start SC from aristotle to brush my basics of grammar again or do the same from the gmat club grammar book?

Hi DarkHorse2019,

In a prior post, you described how you had studied for 6 months and scored 540/Q44/V21. That V21 means that you lost significant points in all 3 major Verbal categories (RC, SC and CR) - and you'll clearly have to make some significant improvements to how you handle the entire Verbal section (and the Quant section) to earn a 750 overall Score. While it's understandable that you might want to restart your studies with a book that you previously studied with, using that book did not lead you to a great outcome. Are you planning to use that book in a different way (relative to how you studied before)? In the broader sense, you will likely have to make some big changes to your study routine - and that will likely include using new study materials and focusing on Quant and Verbal Tactics during this next phase of your studies.

carcass thanks for your input :) I will try and read both, maybe similar topics simultaneously and practicing questions along side.

EMPOWERgmatRichC Yeah you are right, I have planned my approach a bit differently now. Now for every mistake I have bookmarked the question and plan to re-do the question after a week or so to see my strength/ improvement on the given topic, or else no point going through old or new GMAT books if am doing that just for the sake of it.
