Announcing the New Foundations of Verbal Strategy Guide

by , Jun 1, 2011

The long-awaited Foundations of Verbal Strategy Guide is finally here! Were also launching an Advanced Quant book; click on the link to read about that one.

We published our first Foundations book, focused on quant, last year, and now ManhattanGMAT teacher extraordinaire Jen Dziura has gifted us with the equivalent verbal tome everything you ever wanted to know about parts of speech, sentence structure, reading comprehension, and all of the basics that most GMAT books (including ManhattanGMATs "regular" series of Strategy Guides) assume you already know.

Who should use this book? Great question. If you have taken a practice or real test and scored below the 50th percentile, then this book may be for you. If you are a non-native English speaker (or even a native!) who didnt learn much by way of formal grammar (whats a noun and what different types of nouns are there?), or who never had much practice with reading comprehension tests in English, then this book may be for you.

To give you an idea of what to expect, excerpts from the new Foundations of Verbal are below.
