How to Prepare for GMAT SC ?? [#permalink]

Guys,

I started my GMAT preparation from January 1st onwards and my diagnostic score was 460 ( V 17 ,Q 37 ) . My aim is to score 700 with split scores as ( V36, Q 49). I started my Verbal prepartion with Sentence Correction.

I have Veritas and Mahattan SC correction guide with me. I completed Sentece correction part from "Foundation of GMAT Verbal " and then started reading Manhattan SC guide.

1. What is the approach i need to follow to study Manhattan SC guide ?

2. How to practice OG questions?

3. When to start working on GMAT SC forum on GMATCLUB ?

4. How to check my accuracy on each SC topic like (parllelism, S-V agreement) ?

5. Do i need to follow any other books along with the above books?

Hi pardhunani143,

Manhattan SC is the holy grail for SC.
1. What is the approach i need to follow to study Manhattan SC guide ?
You should start from there itself, read the chapters and then solve the questions at the end. Re-read the concepts till you dont get them.

2. How to practice OG questions?
Finish the Manhattan SC and then start OG11. It is the best OG when it comes to explanations for SC.
You can follow this with OG 13.

3. When to start working on GMAT SC forum on GMATCLUB ?
Once you are done with Manhattan SC guide, you can start SC practice from gmatclub.

4. How to check my accuracy on each SC topic like (parllelism, S-V agreement) ?
On Gmatclub, there are questions sorted according to topics and difficulty, use them. Analyse the accuracy using the statistics that gmatclusb offers.

5. Do i need to follow any other books along with the above books?
You do not need anything beyond Manhattan SC.

Ciao pardhunani143

I am not an expert of verbal unfortunately but since SC is one of my strenghts I hope I can be a little helpful.
This is how I improved my accuracy in SC, I hope it will work for you as well

1. Reviewed the MGMAT SC (4th edition) and practiced the OG questions indicated at the end of each chapter

2. Passed through MGMAT SC again, just repeating all the main points and taking notes.

3. Practiced the questions of the OG for Verbal Review.

4. Practiced the questions of GMATCLUB

Regarding to the question of how to check accuracy, I would suggest the following:
In OG answer explanations it is indicated the type of question, you can count how many parallelism questions were there and how many of them you did right

I hope it helps

Best Regards
TC

When you go through OG - try the questions yourself, then compare yourself with how we do it: http://www.gmatpill.com/official-guide-gmat/

If you would like to check on specific categories within SC - you can see the various questions and answers on this page and choose the appropriate question for your needs: http://www.gmatpill.com/gmat-practice-test/
