    GMAT sentence correction tips

    • Look out for : none, each,....pronoun number errors.
    • Verb agreement with subject w.r.t. number, tense, etc.
    • Modifiers...recognize them.
    • Possessive case --it's not the subject.
    • Dangling Modifiers -- Modifiers which have no subject --- wrong!!
    • Almost always Modifiers come immediately after the word they modify!
    • IF Vs WHETHER - If--  hypothetical.... whether -- when you have to choose among options
    • Maintain PARALLELISM -- rather than, instead of, to X is to Y, etc.
    • Look out for Sentences starting with "to"...maintain parallelism
    • BOTH -- only two things!! and parallel too!!
    • Look out for COMPARISONS -- LIKE, UNLIKE, SIMILAR same types (number, type, etc.)
    • Look for countable and non-countable nouns. (amount, sum,etc.)
    • THAT Vs WHICH ...that is restrictive...which is non-restrictive.
    • LIKE Vs AS ... like expresses similarity ... As compare clauses
    • SUCH AS --; to give examples .. such X as x1, x2, x3.
    • JUST AS --; again to compare actions, not nouns.
    • BECAUSE Vs IN THAT ...because shows cause and effect ... in that is mostly correct on the GMAT.
    • USUAL Vs IS USUAL ... usual... compared to itself... is usual...when compared to a sub-group it belongs to.
    • NATIVE OF Vs NATIVE TO ... Native of is used for a person...native to is corrector person/thing..everything else.

    • BECAUSE Vs ON ACCOUNT OF --; former is preferred over the latter. both are correct.

    • 'Declining revenues' -- ; is plur.


    Many Students find Reading Comprehension is the toughest in Verbal Section on GMAT. I have only one thing to say to them : you may actually never solve a SC question or involve yourself in Critically Reason out an argument, but you would certainly read something everyday.Reading comprehension requires lots of practice and very good understanding of the Examiner's psyche.
    GMAT reading tips and tricks
    Reading Comprehension passages are up to 350 words long. Topics contain material from the social sciences, physical or biological sciences, and business related areas (marketing, economics, human resource management, etc.).

    Because the Reading Comprehension Section of the GMAT exam includes passages from several different content areas, you may be generally familiar with some of the material; however, no specific knowledge of the material is required. All questions are to be answered on the basis of what is stated or implied in the reading material.

    Reading Comprehension passages are accompanied by interpretive, applied, and inferential questions.
    Reading Comprehension questions measure your ability to understand, analyze, and apply information and concepts presented in written form.

    Here is the list of all Tricks / Pointers I could think of :

    • Read between the Paragraphs.
    • Read for Author's Main Idea and Primary Purpose.
    • Create a thought flowchart by writing down the Main Idea and Primary purpose after each paragraph.
    • The Main Idea of the passage is the repeated idea in each of the Main ideas (of the paragraphs)
    • The primary purpose is mostly the Primary purpose of the concluding paragraph.
    •  Classify the passages as:
    1. Explanatory (Mostly Science Passages, explain one Theory / Phenomenon in detail).
    2.  Argumentative (Subjective, Opinionated. Mostly Social Science / Business topics. Pros and Cons of a topic with author's view on them.
    3. Paraphrase the text to simplify.
      •  Don't over read. Skip examples, dates, lengthy names, any details which can be referred in case something is asked explicitly.
      •  Don't go for choices which hold true only for one part of the author's argument.
      •  Don't go for choices which exaggerate the author's conclusion.
      •  Don't fill in the blanks yourself. Use only as much is there in the passage.
      • At the end of reading, ask yourself questions like : What was the passage about? What was author's motive in writing all this?
      • Read quickly through soporific passages.
      • Read the first question before the Passage.
      • Use your Critical reasoning techniques for Reasoning / Inference / Strengthen / Weaken questions.
