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?

Both.

One has simplicity as its strength.

The other has the complexity and completeness has its strength.

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.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

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.
