The consensus is that MGMAT quant is harder than the actual GMAT, but verbal is a bit off from the real thing. Best strategy to study verbal is to focus on both OG guides and the GMATPrep tests. I endorse the view. The verbal will be cakewalk for someone who uses MGMAT startegy guides. The best way...

Thanks! thanks. Here is the link to the myohmy's[sorry i misspelt as myhomy] template topic I was talking ab...

I received a PM about this a while ago. While I don't have the OG with me right now to look up the explanation at issue, I am also not aware of any rule that says infinitives can't be placed after nouns. The examples provided in this thread seem fine to me, and I can think of plenty of sentences in...

Concept, you're right that "willing to admit......" is a participial phrase. Participles and participial phrases function as adjectives, so they modify nouns. The phrase is correctly describing the noun "people" in answer choice D. Hope that helps! Thanks Jen. But still I have the same doubt as Pae...

I don't think there's any strong reason not to use pronouns to refer to the author, but I'd use them sparingly, in order to maintain clarity and tone. And I would also recommend using "his or her," because while most readers probably wouldn't care one way or the other, you're right that it's not wo...

Kevin,
I agree that particple modifier can be used without a comma to modify a noun. But how is it ok to use it with a comma? Does it not work as an adverbial modifier whn used with comma?

thanks,
