I have been practicing a lot of SC questions and trying to find out patterns in the questions, but my scores are not going above 30.
Where can I find good resources for SC?

Verbal contains 3 parts: CR, RC and SC, not just only SC. Thus, if you want to improve your verbal score, you also need to improve CR and RC as well.

Manhattan SC Guide could be good to start. Try it and practice regularly with OG questions would help you much. If you want to find more questions to practice, try Gmatclub, Veritas, Manhattan, e-gmat, Magoosh,...

please elaborate on your accuracy in SC, in terms of percentage.
also what sources have you used until now?

manhattan sc
e-gmat sc course
these two have good reviews everywhere. I am taking both and I like egmat's sc approach.

verbal score not going above 30 can be because of a problem of in all the sections and not just sc. I'd say identify and then rectify.

hope it helps, +1 kudos if it does.

Thank you for the information.I will look up the resources you mentioned. Also, my CR and RC are decent in comparison to my SC. Most or my errors happen in SC and hence I need special focus in that area.
Thanks again :)

Hey Tanvi, I have an accuracy of around 53.7% (V29) from the last verbal test I took.
correct - 22
incorrect - 19

Out of the 19 incorrect, 10 are SC.
I am not able to identify any pattern in the sentences. It appears like a huge challenge.

Also, thanks for your reply. I will look up egmat SC!

Hi sashankvissa! Since SC is your specific area of concern, thought I would take this opportunity to mention that our sentence correction book Sentence Correction Nirvana is perhaps the only book that offers a score improvement guarantee, and is especially designed for non-native speakers.

After reading the book twice (yes! it's an academic book, and so must be read twice in all seriousness, to reinforce the concepts), you will start looking forward to solving SC questions!

The book is available on Flipkart and Amazon.in. You might want to refer to these sites, to also read testimonials of how readers have benefited.

See here how Mohit, who scored 750 on GMAT, vouches for our book.

If you want to sample a chapter before deciding to go ahead with our book, please PM me your mail-id (along with the chapter that you would like to sample) and I will be happy to send that chapter to you by mail. In addition, the entire Grammar section of the book is also available for free preview at pothi.
