    Hi everyone, Very Happy

    Firstly I woluld like to extend a BIG THANK YOU to the founders of this site. Beatthegmat.com represents the benevolent attitude that should flow throughout our society Smile . This remarkable site has been more beneficial than the hundreds of dollars I have spent on GMAT prep classes!

    Tips:

    1. During your revision of the scentence correction notes , pay special attention to idiomatic expressions such as: introduced...into,not so much ...as, such ...as, not only ...but also, and the use of as/like, if/whether, and being.

    2. Practice using 1000SC. this really works! Try fitting at least 10 per day in your busy schedule and even when you are focussing on other topics, do even 5. My experience has been that the more you practice, the more you get a feel of what the GMAT answer is. Also, I have become better able to decipher what seems correct to me and what GMAT expects the answer to be.

    3. Finally, DO NOT GIVE UP. Even when you are getting 2 out of 10. Try to get even more determined to improve. Always remember that

    "Our greatest glory is not in never failing,but in rising up everytime we fail"
    Ralph Waldo Emerson

    WORK HARD!
