For everyone who couldn't make it, key points of the discussion were

Chat Date : 30th Jan 2016 (8 am PST/9:30 PM IST)
Section : Verbal
Topic : Sentence Correction
Sub Topic : Parallelism

1. Should implies moral obligation, and usually options which have should are almost never right.
2. One common thing that the GMAT does is make BLIND parallelisms.
3. In GMAT a list with more than one item MUST be connected with AND. ex : If the list has 2 items - it will be X and Y( X and Y need to be parallel) ,
for 3 items it needs to be X,Y and Z.
2 sentences can be connected with an AND or BUT or For but not 3 sentences.ex : I love Paris and i love New york but i hate Berlin is not correct.
It could be I love Paris and I love NewYork ;i hate Berlin.
4. The only rule you need to know about ; is that it needs to have TWO COMPLETE SENTENCES on either side
5. Note that when we connect two things by AND, it means that they are independent of each other. However, when we use COMMA, ING we mean
that the second part is a consequence of the first part
Example : The traffic was out of control and i got late to work. Though this is a grammatically correct sentence, the meaning isn’t logical.
Correct sentence: The traffic was out of control, gettING me late to work.

souvik101990 , stonecold.

Hope i covered all points, please do add if i missed any.

Chat Session : 31st Jan 2016
Section : Quant
Topic : Evens’s Odd’s / Prime numbers and Factor theory

Key Points :
1.The most important thing to check in any even odd question is to double check if they are integers or not.
2.A key rule in solving any even/odd question is that unless the right hand side is zero => DO NOT FACTORIZE

Chat Session : 2nd Feb 2016
Section : Quant

Takeaway's :

When an area is given a circle will have the minimum perimeter
General tip shared by souvik101990 is
1. In quant you MUST always embrace alternative approaches. Mainly because the one trick that you have learned may not work on test day.
2. GMAT won’t probably EVER expect you to do math that rigorous (in my opinion). It is JUST not a math test. => Look for an easier approach.

Note : On Feb 1st session we continued our discussion parallelism, with the key points same as the previous session ( 31st Jan )

Chat Session : 3rd Feb 2016
Section : Verbal
Topic : Sentence Correction

The session lasted for around 20-30 mins. No key points on the topic itself, but there was a beautiful strat souvik101990 shared on how to study effectively :

Quote:
100 problems a day?
*five* days of just doing problems for every *one* day of review?
this is not good... not good at all.

if you're studying properly, you should be spending substantially MORE time on review than on doing problems. if you can do even close to 100 problems per day, that indicates that you're just doing problem after problem after problem after problem after problem, and not spending nearly enough (if any) time reviewing.

here's what you should be able to do:

for EVERY quant problem:
* don't concentrate on the solution to that actual problem, since you can be sure you aren't going to see that actual problem on the exam
* instead, try to find TAKEAWAYS from the problem, which you can then APPLY TO OTHER PROBLEMS. this is key - DO NOT LEAVE A PROBLEM until you have extracted at least one piece of information, whether a formula, a strategy, a trick/trap, etc., that you can apply to OTHER problems.
do not leave a problem until you can fill in the following sentence, meaningfully and nontrivially:
"if i see _____ ON ANOTHER PROBLEM, i should _____"
* notice the SIGNALS in the problem that dictate which strategy to use. if you miss the problem, then notice the strategy that's used in the book's solution (not always the best solution, in the case of the o.g., but better than nothing), and go back to see if there are any signals 'telling' you to use that strategy.

for EVERY verbal problem:
* you should be able to give SPECIFIC reasons why EVERY wrong answer is wrong, and why EVERY right answer is right. ("i just know that it's wrong/right" is NEVER acceptable -- you need to think carefully about the problem until you have discerned a specific reason.)
* you should GENERALIZE these lessons in ways that could conceivably apply to future problems (e.g., "on this problem type, any answer choice more general than the passage = wrong").

for EVERY SC problem, in addition to the above:
* you should be able to go through the CORRECT sentence -- including the non-underlined part -- and justify EVERY construction in that sentence.
e.g.
-- if there's a modifier, you should be able to explain exactly what it modifies, and exactly why that modification makes sense.
-- if there's a pronoun, you should be able to explain exactly what it stands for, and exactly why that makes sense.
-- if there's a verb, you should be able to find its subject. you should also be able to justify the tense in which the verb is used, and/or the tense sequence of multiple verbs.
-- you should be able to explain the exact meaning of the sentence.
-- if there are parallel structures, you should be able to explain (a) the grammatical parallelism AND (b) the parallelism in meaning.
etc.

if you're doing these things, there's no way you'll be able to get through even half that number of problems.

quantity ≠ quality. - Ron Purewal

Chat Session : 6nd Feb 2016
Section : SC

Takeaway's :

1. FLIP sentence construction

Note that every sentence needs to have main subject and a verb.
Both have two main verbs - does not work. you can see this by a flip.

of 100 students, 20% of them are absent - 20% of them of 100 students are absent - RIDICULOUS
of 100 students, 20% are absent - FLIP - 20% of 100 students are absent

2. you cannot have more as or more as much

3. likelihood implies future focused. You can have present likelihood but not future focused likelihood

4. A ratio cannot be 42 times of pay.

Hi guys. I have a planned dinner today, so I won't be available for the chat. Also, note that Narenn has scheduled a Johnson chat and a consultant chat today and tomorrow at the same time. So if you guys want to study, maybe move the discussion to the other chat link.

Here is the alternative chat: https://gmatclub.com/forum/mchat2.php

Hope you guys have a fun chat today.

Chat Session : 7th Feb 2016
Section : Verbal
Topic : CR
Sub Topic : Assumption questions

Takeaway's :

1. In CR you guys should write these two things Main Point and Missing Info down FOR SURE. The 5-10 secs that you will spend writing will help you a LOT in. Also the notes have to be VERY short and really precise(like the notes should be easily understandable by a kid.)

2. Conclusion = main point = KEY to solving questions.

Questions discussed :

1. https://gmatclub.com/forum/because-it-w ... 46450.html
