Hey Abhinav,

SC was the problem even I faced while preparing to take my GMAT test. But the way I went about it was to ensure that in the other sections I am decent enough so that in SC even if I make mistakes in the tough questions I would still get a respectable score. You will need to decide on such a strategy for yourself. People can just guide you but you will need to figure out a few things like:

1) What is your current score in Verbal?
2) What is your target score in Verbal?
3) In the three section in verbal how many mistakes you make in each section?
4) Are these mistakes during the initial set of verbal questions or towards the end?

These will help you in deciding on a strategy for yourself. You will need to understand one glove doesn't fit all.

Regarding the material go through OG 10/12 or OG Verbal. At least these were the ones I went through.

Hey Rahul,

Thanks for writing...I always mess up with long sentences in SC :|
Am working on it with SC grail.And I am starting with OG 10 for verbal practice hope it is enough for GMAT.

Abhinav

Hi Abhinav,

In verbal are you able to pin point on which Topic you are facing problems. Until and unless you are able to pinpoint your problems you will not be able to work on them. I would suggest take the GMAT prep test to understand your weakness. Personally I found OG 12 and OG verbal enough material for my verbal preparations.

Hope this helps.
