I've been stuck at V42 for a week+in between 15 hours of just doing OG SC questions. I've done all the SC questions in the Verbal OG and the OG with all the sections in it, reviewed the MGMAT book on sentence correction and reviewed/redid all wrong answers twice in the OG books. Probably ~300 questions all together. Are there really good sources from going from 85% to 99%+ on SC? I seem to have mastered all the basic concepts, but am not ok with the expert level concepts in SC.

My verbal for my 3rd practice test is 44CR/51RC/39SC. My verbal for my 2nd practice test was 42CR/51RC/42SC, so i've gotten WORSE in SC with 10 hours of studying. Oddly enough I've still scored V42 on both tests.

I'm trying for a 760+, but I also seem to be stuck on Q49. So I'm trying to get V44/Q50. It seems I make a bunch of stupid mistakes on the Quant section every time so I'd rather bring up my verbal (esp SC which I seem to be terrible at compared to the others).

Please help me with my SC :(.

Hi pistachiorose,

I'd recommend using only official SC questions. If you're done with both free GMATprep tests, you can get over 600 official questions from these CATs here:
https://gmatclub.com/forum/the-most-com ... 40372.html

In addition, you can find "new" questions in previous editions. For example, all the new questions of a certain OG edition are highlighted in the following threads:
https://gmatclub.com/forum/og-2017-foru ... 22326.html
https://gmatclub.com/forum/official-gui ... fl=similar

Another great source is exam pack 1, exam pack 2 and question bank. It's around $110 but worth every penny.

Also, check out Ron's videos, he provides really nice techniques to tackle SC questions:
https://gmatclub.com/forum/compiled-thu ... 54538.html

Here is another nice thread, check it out:
https://gmatclub.com/forum/comprehensiv ... 06724.html


Last, as your RC skills are awesome, you might want to focus on improving your CR to get your dream score.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

Thanks guys! Akela, is there any kind of tag to just find OG questions from pre-2018 books? Or just only OG questions in general? I'd rather practice from only OG. Also, any CR recs? I've already done all the Verbal OG questions, but will try to do the RC questions from the OG All book.

I don't think there is such a tag. But, you can find problems that were removed in this thread:
https://gmatclub.com/forum/breakdown-of ... 33151.html

To find OG questions, press "Source: official guide" in question description as shown in the attached file.
