Hey guys,

At start of the prep i was of the opinion that since i have been taught in english and all throughout my professional life english has been the prime mode of conversation i will be good in english.

Well that was not at all true..

So went through many advisories how to pick up the language, since you read and read alot in the GMAT, right from Instructions to last of the questions its all in English, i felt that i did not have that much of stamina to constantly stare at screen and expect to grasp every bit of it...

I started with books, newspaper and articles...

To supplement my reading and to create a pool of good reads... I want to start this chain in which whatever you read an online article or an excerpt,,,, let others know about it....let others get the material and read and discuss their own maps....

I believe it will help others, it has surely started helping me..

Cheers

Umang

when you read you have to realize grammatical role of each phrase, word and the role of tense. you see grammar in the text you read
