Book Description

May 2007 0979017572 978-0979017575
Sentence Correction (1 of the 8 books in Manhattan GMAT's Preparation Guide series) provides a highly organized and structured approach to the variety of questions in this verbal content area. Students are presented with every major grammatical principle and minor grammatical point tested on the GMAT.

The book offers a unique balance between two competing emphases: test-taking strategies and in-depth content understanding. Practice problem sets build specific foundational skills in each topic and include the most advanced content that many other prep books ignore. As the average GMAT score required to gain admission to top b-schools continues to rise, this guide provides test takers with the depth and volume of advanced material essential for succeeding on the GMAT's computer adaptive format. Book also includes online access to 6 full-length Simulated Practice GMAT Exams at Manhattan GMAT's website.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enormous help Sept. 13 2007
I cannot begin to describe how helpful this book was in learning the concepts of sentence correction. After thoroughly reading the book and doing the exercises, I observed a marked increase in my sentence correction accuracy. Pay attention to every detail in this little book and it will stand you in good stead. This book seems to be criticized for referring to the Official Guide. It does however provide access to an online sentence correction question bank and 6 GMAT CATs that I found to be excellent representations of the actual test and second only to the practice tests from GMATPrep. Definitely buy this book if you want to improve your sentence correction accuracy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book with some flaws June 14 2008
By Denis L. - Published on Amazon.com
This is the greatest book explaining all underlying rules for GMAT Sentence Correction among the books I used to prepare for GMAT. It provides very in-depth but easy-to-understand explanations for almost all aspects of English tested on GMAT.
The only reason why I was slightly disappointed with this product was examples and problem sets. It looks like they were not proof-read and thus they are inconsistent with the grammar rules described in the corresponding chapter.
So my advice would be - buy this book, use it as your primary grammar guide, but don't be too much concerned with the problem sets and explanations on the correct answers.

Finding it extremely helpful for my GMAT prep. Stresses on the grammar basics with good examples. The downside is you have to buy the GMAT official or Verbal book for exercises, manhattan standalone does not have many exercises for you to practise.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best SC Book For The GMAT Dec 15 2007
By english_august - Published on Amazon.com
This is the best book for sentence correction, specially if English is your second language. Provides a great overview of important concepts, a grammar exercise on each topic and then points to a bunch of relevant questions in the Official Guide and GMAT Verbal review.

If you don't want to be at a serious competitive disadvantage or if you are not already god at SC, my advice is that buy this book as early as you can in your GMAT preparation period.

5.0 out of 5 stars a MUST buy! Sept. 29 2008

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I took an expensive prep course and still fell short of needing better material to prepare for the GMAT. My tutor recommended this to me and it is bar none the holy grail for conquering sentence correction on the GMAT.

5.0 out of 5 stars worth the money Aug. 25 2008
By Ryan - Published on Amazon.com
Really good book. all the concepts clearly explained. I think its better to read this book once you have covered at least one other book like princeton, kaplan etc. (the gmat guides).
