About This Course

Published 12/2015 English

Course 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

Talk to us!

  • Mail us about anything - anything! - and we will always reply :-)

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.
