It's no doubt that the best material is OG. Also, I think the good ones are Manhattan, Veritas, Magoosh,... Any material good or not is based on each individual and the study way. You could try all material I've mentioned and find the best suit for you.

Hi Lorena,

To improve in SC, one needs to work on the core skills: Sentence Structure in Sentence Correction. We recommend a Meaning based approach to solve the SC questions so that you never get confused between two answer choices even when both seem to be grammatically correct.

EGMAT’s Strategy for SC
1. Read the entire sentence
2. Understand the meaning
3. Look for mistakes in the original sentence
4. Check the answer choices.
5. Use POE (Process Of Elimination) to get to the answer.

To understand more on this, i suggest you go through the recording of the recently held SC webinar here. The following are discussed in the webinar:

Importance of Meaning - How to leverage meaning to solve 700+ level SC questions.
Gain 90% accuracy - How to develop a systematic process for solving any SC question.
Improve your Sentence Correction Ability - How focusing on meaning can improve your SC solving ability and can make you cross the V40 barrier.

Hope this helps.

Hi Lorena! Thought I would 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.

I will say gmatclub has all the resources you need!
read through e-gmat posts and free videos to start.
then practice daily starting with 600 level questions.
read through blogs by other gurus which are made sticky on the forum opening page.
go through OG diligently all and verbal.
move on the 700 level questions from manhattan prep, veritas, magoosh.
take gmat prep tests
then practice all gmat prep questions here.
if you take test series form one of the above companies dont practice their questions to avoid diluting the test results.
