Hi,

I have spent around 2 months practicing SC from OG.
Gave 2 SC test
Test 1 : 14/30 and
Test 2: 11/30.

I have keeping track of all my mistakes which I have done previously.
Revising rules regularly but no matter what I cant see improved results. While solving also I usually get few questions right.

Pls guide me how to go about SC preparation in this situation. I haven’t taken test date but
have plans to schedule it around mid-June.

Also, which topics under SC should I focus more for eg

1.Comparisons
2. Tenses?

Thanks

Hi dhruvipatwa01

First off, Welcome to GMATClub.

Your scores are indicative of the fact that your concepts aren't as clear as
they should be. I would recommend starting from concepts. IMO, the best
online prep material available is eGMAT(where the concepts are in the form
of videos). The concepts are clearly supported by simple examples which
help improve your grasp on them.

Alternatively, you could read the Aristotle SC Grail/Manhattan Strategy guides
which are really good resources as far as GMAT SC is concerned. For practice,
you can use GMATClub. Please find below a link to all questions(that you will
need for SC)

Hope this helps you!

Hi dhruvipatwa01,

I will highly encourage you to solidify your base in verbal 1st before you start solving OG questions. MGMAT foundation of GMAT Quant anf foundation of GMAT verbal will particularly help you solidify your base. For verbal and especially for SC, I would highly encourage you to consider e-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live course. They are both amazing courses especially designed for non-natives. They offer almost 25% of their courses for free so you can try out their free trial to decide which one you want to go for. Plus the e-gmat Scholaranium which is included in both the courses is one of the best verbal practice tools in the market. You can easily track your progress in that you can identify your strengths and analyze and improve on your weak areas.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practise tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

I would also encourage you to purchase the GMATPREP QP 1 for some great additional practice. Here is a link that will help you with your decision.

Hope this helps. All the best.

Hi dhruvipatwa01,

You've self-identified that you need to work on your SC knowledge and Tactics, but it's not clear whether that focus should be your priority at this point (there might be other issues that are equally worthy of your time - or potentially worth more of your time right now). Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
6) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Hi Dhruvi! Since you mention SC as your area of concern, 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.
