I have been reading this form since couple of weeks. It feels good to see that so many are helping each other. Based on some good advice here, I have started with Kaplan 2005. My goal is to achieve 7XX. I was able to correctly answer 70% of the CR questions, but SC is killing me.. I can only do 30% of the SC questions correctly.
Experts suggested here that try to read the answers and understand why it is right or wrong. For almost all the questions in CR I can understand why a answer is right or wrong, but for SC questions most of the time I can't understand the explainations in the Kapalan. It will not be that surprising if I say that English is not my mother tongue and I never had good relationship with the language.
Most of the answers mentioned the terms from english grammar so I decided to improve in those specific areas of my understaing of english grammar. I went to a public library found a book, called essentials english grammar, and read most of the relevant chapters, nonun-verb agreement, modifiers etc.
It felt better and I started again to solve the Kaplan problems. To my surprise and frustration if I may add, there was no improvement. I started analyzing again and found that I still don't understand why many of the ansers are right/wrong. Now, I am clueless.
Can someone be kind enogh to help me? What would be better book to improve my english grammer so that not only I can answer the questions correctly but can understand why a choice is wrong/right.

Thanks and Regards
Ashish

Asihsh,

This site is really good. Read the Official Guide and look for what each terms means at the below mentioned link. Dont worry, if you sepnd a couple of days just going through the OG and this mentioned link, you will be just fine.

Moreover, stay alive on this form and even if you dont get a correct answer for questions, still try to give your views and ask for suggestions from a lot of talented people here.

Thanks
