Book Description

April 24, 2012 1935707671 978-1935707677 5 Pap/Psc
Considered the gold-standard in GMAT test prep, Manhattan GMAT’s ten strategy guides are the first books on the market to be aligned with the 13th Edition GMAC Official Guide. Fully updated and revised to deal with recent changes to the GMAT, they were designed with a content-based approach.

The industry-leading Sentence Correction Guide delves into every major principle and minor subtlety of grammar tested on the GMAT. From its comprehensive list of GMAT-specific idioms to its tailored coverage of topics such as pronouns and parallelism, this guide teaches exactly what students need for GMAT Sentence Correction—and nothing that they don’t.

Unlike other guides that attempt to convey everything in a single tome, the Sentence Correction Strategy Guide is designed to provide deep, focused coverage of one specialized area tested on the GMAT. As a result, students benefit from thorough and comprehensive subject material, clear explanations of fundamental principles, and step-by-step instructions of important techniques. In-action practice problems and detailed answer explanations challenge the student, while topical sets of Official Guide problems provide the opportunity for further growth.

Used by itself or with other Manhattan GMAT Strategy Guides, the Sentence Correction Guide will help students develop all the knowledge, skills, and strategic thinking necessary for success on the GMAT.

Purchase of this book includes one year of access to Manhattan GMAT’s online computer-adaptive practice exams and Sentence Correction Question Bank. All Manhattan GMAT Strategy Guides are aligned with the 13th edition GMAC Official Guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, great authors August 16, 2012
By Jo Ann
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In my pursuit of the 700+ GMAT score, it was disheartening to score consistently very low on my Verbal. I was doing very badly in Sentence correction and could not figure out why. Manhattan book made it easy for me to diagnose my mistakes and the Idioms list is useful! Definitely a good buy. Don't hesitate to get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Helpful April 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a non-native studying for the GMAT. I found on this book a great summarized and very concise manner to consolidate my Verbal knowledge. I dont use it as the main material for my studying, I use it as a complement. It also comes with 6 CAT tests!

5.0 out of 5 stars Only half way through February 18, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have only read half the book but I am already seeing significant improvement in my grammer. I took a pre test (cold) and scored 600 (44% quant / 27% verbal). At that time I answered sentence corrections by what sounded correct. Now when I answer the questions I am using the correct rules to justify my answers. This book will help.

5.0 out of 5 stars Step below the SC Bible... August 25, 2013
By Amit G.
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's like running 1st grade through 10th grade over and over again. More than enough to get you past a 48 on Verbal if the SC is holding you back, but a perfect may still require the SC bible.

Honestly, if you need the advanced stuff and anything past the first few chapters you are going to do great on the SC portion of the verbal. At some point though, I did realize that meaning and those basic few things - parallelism, verb tense, logical flow, etc. were the keys to getting 80-90% of the SC...That last few percent is a lot of work for not much return. CR book is also off the charts and saved my posterior!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book!! January 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great book. Especially the first few sections on verbs and nouns. I felt idioms could be detailed even more with many examples as it appears in GMAT. The examples in this book are very short. Other than that a great buy to study the sentence correction.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended for GMAT prep students June 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great book for GMAT test takers.

Could be a five star perfect book, if SC problems(other than OG ones referred) are provided at end of each chapter.
