Hi All,

I wanted to confirm if Idioms are not tested any more in GMAT.
I doubt that, but wanted to confirm this. In case anyone here has read something related to this at a reliable resource.

I assume that what would be happening is that GMAT would have been testing for Idioms solely previously but has now stopped the selection between two answer choices purely based on Idiom.

So if that is the case, Idioms memorizing should help.

Thoughts ?

I have memorized all the idioms in the Manhattan SC, but there still a lot of idioms out of it. Are there any experts have other idioms collection which is corresponded to GMAC's criteria?

Memorizing idioms will not add much value. It is not an efficient use of your time. GMAT focuses on higher order thinking and the questions reflect that.
