This is too good a collection. Had started a little late on the prep but this has boosted my confidence immensely.

Hi
eGMAT says : Greater/ Lesser : is used to express comparison between TWO different things
e.g. the price of gold is greater now than it was in 1990. This sentence is wrong, according to them.
Now, according to Veritas, this is correct:
e.g.
The weight of the average American male today is roughly fifteen percent greater than it was fifty years ago.
This is correct according to Veritas.
So whom to follow, Veritas or eGMAT.??
This is confusing.

All I can say is Thanks to Vercules for putting down everything I want for SC in one post.. I find SC as the most difficult nut to crack and I hope to do better when I take the GMAT again!

Thank you

Thanks for the effort taken. But could you please segregate the must do list from the one provided, I am planning to re-write GMAT 60 days from today, and I reckon if I sit over this material i think it should take more than 2 months to go through it entirely. (My previous Verbal Score is 28, I know there is a lot of scope for improvement).

Hi all,

I've on e question regarding this question collection --> What is the source of the collection ? As I have not yet done a GMATPREP, I just don't want to face official PREP Questions in advance.
Can somebody tell me, which are the question banks that don't contain official GMATPREP questios.

I scored 25 on GmatPrep verbal and I would like to improve my score (at least 35), thus I have been looking around this forum and came across the Kaplan Gmat Verbal Workbook. When I checked the online stores I saw that they also sell the Kaplan Gmat Verbal Foundation. I was wondering if any here knows the difference between these two books, I can't seem to find it online

Or any other recommendations on verbal (books) are welcome

Little background info:
> I am a nonnative English speaker
> I went through the Manhattan Sentence Correction book but I guess it didnt help me score that high (V25)
> I went back to the basics and downloaded the GmatClub grammar book (which I really liked) but not high lvl enough to help me reach a score of at least 35

Hi all,

How Can I improve my SC? I have both studied verbal foundation and sc by manhattan. However, results are not satisfactory when it comes to solve SC questions...What else should I do to eradicate this problem?
