Description

The Sentence Correction part of the GMAT is an opportunity - embrace it.

  • Sentence corrections are the easiest section of the test to 'game'. If you know the rules, you'll score really high, if you don't you'll score really low
  • Unlike math, reading comprehension or logical reasoning questions, sentence correction scores improve dramatically with practice
  • The sentence correction questions have their own, very specific quirks - these make little sense if you are a non-native speaker - but if you understand these quirks and can spot them, you'll crack the test

What's covered

  • 50 high-quality sentence correction problems
  • No grammatical gobbledygook - simple explanations you can understand
  • Visual highlights so that you really get why alternatives are right or wrong


Using discussion forums

Please use the discussion forums on this course to engage with other students and to help each other out. Unfortunately, much as we would like to, it is not possible for us at Loonycorn to respond to individual questions from students:-(

We're super small and self-funded with only 2-3 people developing technical video content. Our mission is to make high-quality courses available at super low prices.

The only way to keep our prices this low is to *NOT offer additional technical support over email or in-person*. The truth is, direct support is hugely expensive and just does not scale.

We understand that this is not ideal and that a lot of students might benefit from this additional support. Hiring resources for additional support would make our offering much more expensive, thus defeating our original purpose.

It is a hard trade-off.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!


Who is the target audience?
  • Yep! Anyone preparing to take the GMAT
  • Yep! Non-native speakers looking to level the playing field in the verbal section
  • Yep! Anyone that finds grammar jargon incredibly confusing, and would like simple, crisp explanations in everyday language

Sentence Correction is an Opportunity - Embrace It!
1 Lecture 02:56

The sentence correction questions on the GMAT are an opportunity - seize it!

Here's what this course is about and why you should take it:

  • Understand The Rules: Sentence correction questions are the most 'game-able', in the sense that they have specific rules that you need to know, and know how to use. Once you do, you can score really well on these.
  • Level The Playing Field: Non-native speakers tend to struggle on the verbal section, but if you are a non-native speaker, a class like this can level the playing field.
  • Move The Needle: Acing the sentence correction questions, versus flunking them, can make a big difference to your score - check out the GMAT scoring tables and you can do the math: a swing of 50 points is possible.
