I wish experts and member comment on my following idea.
Most unofficial SC from prep company is shorter than the SC from OG and gmatprep. This problem is not small. Looking for an error in a short sentence is different from doing so in a long sentence. When sentence is long, we have to remember the first part of the sentence when we find errors in the latter part of the sentenc. This is one thing gmat test us.
If test prep company make short sentences and focus on creating similar errors in the OG books and gmatprep, The test prep ignore an important thing gmat test us: remembering the first part of the sentence when looking for errors in the latter part of the sentence.

I do a lot of unofficial questions in this forum , most of them from the testprep companies to realize that the unofficial questions lack somthing important.

Experts, members, pls, comment. Thank you.

I don't think so!

IMO: GMAT exams have a mix of all type of sentences, short, medium and long and the degree of difficulty is not related to the length of the questions.

agree with gmatkiss;

its basically the usage/ fundamentals that are tested, whether it be in a long sentence or in a shorter one doesnt matters.

It doesn't really matter whether the usage or basics are tested in a lengthy or short sentence; what counts is how they are used. geometry dash

I am sure that a mix of long and short sentences will be used. The length of the sentence does not really matter, in fact, the analysis of a long sentence will probably take 20% more than a short one.

There are differences between unofficial and official sentence correction (SC) questions in GMAT preparation materials. The shorter SC questions in the unofficial preparation materials may not adequately prepare test takers for the complexity of the longer sentences on the official GMAT. This discrepancy can affect test takers' ability to accurately identify errors because they must recall the context of the entire sentence. Test prep companies should consider including longer, more complex sentences to better align with the format of the official GMAT test questions and improve test-taker preparation.GMAT dolls cheap
