process of elimination

Post Sun Sep 24, 2006 1:58 am
hi huys

recnetly i was havin difficulty in sc section but now i m feeling much better!!!!
actually wat i was doing is that when i read the sentence ,i started makin in my mind wat correct snetence shld be in place of that

however i have now abandoned that habit and finding myslef much better laced in the sc wat i do now is readin every answer choice and keep on eliminating every choice on the basis of thinking Idea that y this choice cant be the answer so reaching the corret answer and my acuracy really improved!!!!

plz suggest me am i following the right startegy for tackling sc part of sc?

Caveat.

All this POE suggested by PR is fine when you look at nice sentences where the mistakes stand out in neon lights. But they hardly help when you hit the 700+ range. What you need is rock-solid reason behind choosing the right answer.

So, use this strategy, but with caution.
