Hi :
I have following scorees so far :

MGMAT 1 680 (Q44,v38)
MGMAT 2 640 (Q44 , V33)
Powerprep : 6409(Q47,33)

GMAT PREP : 690(Q48,V34)

Its very clear that any chance of scorijng 700 will need real improvement in verbal. But I donno How to do that ....
I have invested a lot of time in SC and can do almost all the SC's when practicing from OG , but during test . my brain goes freeze .. and I cannot think the same as when doing OG.

Any Help willl be a great help ....


thanks,

Since I'm a native speaker, the sentence correction wasn't too tough for me, but I did have a lot of improvement in it.

Obviously, the best thing is to try and spot the error right off the bat. If you can do this, then you can either find the answer or you're probably down to two choices.

If you can't find the error, then read all the sentences in comparison to the original. Pick out the differences and figure out which one is right. Once you spot the difference, you can probably find the same mistake in the other choices, so you can cross those out as well. Then if some still remain, you'll just have to go with what sounds right (I know this will be hard).

Two last tips:
1) When in doubt pick the shorter one
2) In my experience, it seems like choice A is right more often than you would think, so if you haven't picked choice A in 4 or 5 SCs and you have to make a guess, A might be a good guess if it's still remaining after POE.
