Hi guys,
I desperately need your advice. My Gmat is coming up in 3 weeks but I still struggle a lot with Sc, spending around 2-2.5’ on each Sc question and still got around 40% of them
incorrect. While I definitely see some improvements in RC and CR, Im so lost with SC !
I cant figure out what I’ve gone wrong. I read Manhattan SC guide twice, completed egmat course, finished all the OG questions and reviewed them carefully. I also bought extra question pack from Official Gmat to practice but still couldnt make any improvement in my practice prep test :(

Any advice guys ? Is there any good prep test company to quickly help me boost my score ?
Thanks in advance !

Hi htkv, what exactly bothers you on SC?

If you increase your current time (of 2-2.5 minutes to say 5 minutes), do you think your accuracy would improve? If yes, then it is perhaps not about concepts but about timing.

Also, sometimes students do take a very rigid view of grammar rules, and try to force-fit each SC question into that framework. Am not trying to be presumptive, but that is another thing you might want to look at.

What does your SC process look like? In other words, when you see an SC problem come up on the screen, what do you look at first? What do you do first?

Are you looking for differences among the answer choices, or are you looking at each answer choice one at a time? It's a lot faster to focus on what makes the answer choices different, since that's always where the errors will be.
