Hi all
Have finished MGMAT SC 2-3 times .. made an exhaustive list of idioms and practicing for 2 months but still struggling in SC because of which v32 is never becoming v38 or greater . Bit disappointed that even after MGMAT sc I m still struggling in SC . Should I try any other material ? Seems like the rules specified in MGMAT sc are insufficient .. or am I wrong ?
Please help

It takes time to improve SC... especially if your grammar and english skills are weak. You have to start with Structure of sentence, first master this. You should be able to tell the difference between a run on and a proper sentence. This is KEY, without this you will have a lot of trouble trying to figure out how to fix modifiers and missing verb issues. If you understand this first aspect then you can eliminate a lot of wrong choices just because they are not complete sentence.

Once you've mastered this simple aspect then move onto Subject verb agreement, this is again very easy to learn and spot. Easy points, then move onto Tenses, which are not tested heavily but you need to know this to make sense of sentences. Then onto Pronoun issues. These appear quite often and very easy to learn. Then next step is to learn modifiers, ing vs ed modifiers and how to modify the correct thing. Then onto comparisons. Last but not least you have to learn to see what words are redundant, and learn idioms.

Idioms by themselves will not help! Many wrong choices have correct idioms so you will pick the wrong choice if you only go by idiom. Hope this helps! It took me several weeks at the minimum to get this down, and I am a native speaker.... So don't underestimate SC.

Good luck! & Also Give E-GMAT a try, very good course and I used it to improve a lot. Manhattan itself i not sufficient for non-native speakers.

Hi ramukaka, since you specifically mention SC as your pain area, 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.
