Overview

The Sentence Correction guide (1 of the 8 books in Manhattan GMAT's Preparation Guide series) provides a highly organized and structured approach to the variety of questions in this verbal content area. Students are presented with every major grammatical principle and minor grammatical point tested on the GMAT.

The book offers a unique balance between two competing emphases: test-taking strategies and in-depth content understanding. Practice problem sets build specific foundational skills in each topic and include the most advanced content that many other prep books ignore. As the average GMAT score required to gain admission to top b-schools continues to rise, this guide provides test takers with the depth and volume of advanced material essential for succeeding on the GMAT's computer adaptive format. Book also includes online access to 6 full-length Simulated Practice GMAT Exams at Manhattan GMAT's website.

Special Features:

*Each of the 8 Guides covers 1 major topic in extensive depth, providing students with many more pages-per-topic than found in all in-one books. Single-topic focus of each guide allows the student to purchase only those guides that pertain to his/her weaknesses.

*Purchase includes 6 Full-Length Computer Adaptive Online Practice GMAT Exams and Bonus Sentence Correction Online Question Bank developed exclusively by Manhattan GMAT. Your book includes a unique access code that enables you to access these online resources.

*Cleanly-presented strategies, problems sets, and explanations with sidebars that highlight key concepts; no need to wade through cramped pages in small typeface.

*Each chapterbuilds comprehensive content understanding in the given topic area by providing rules, strategies and in-depth examples of how the GMAT tests a given topic and how you can respond accurately and quickly. Each chapter (except Odds & Ends) is followed by 15 challenging practice problems, progressively increasing in difficulty and designed to increase your ability from novice to expert in the given topic. Answers with explanations follow each problem set.

*After mastering all the Sentence Correction topics and completing Manhattan GMAT's comprehensive problem sets, you can test your knowledge on Sentence Correction problems that have appeared on past GMAT exams. These problems are contained in The Official Guides For GMAT Review (sold separately), published by GMAC, the organization that administers the GMAT. Manhattan GMAT has categorized all the Sentence Correction problems in The Official Guides by grammatical topic area. These categorized problems have been organized into a problem list and problem matrix that appear in the back of the Sentence Correction Strategy Guide.

Meet the Author

Manhattan GMAT's 8 preparation guides were developed by Manhattan GMAT's talented staff of real teachers, all of whom have scored in the 99th percentile on the official GMAT. As the company focuses solely on the GMAT (no other tests), it continually updates the guides to reflect the GMAT's most current trends. Questions are refined and strategies enhanced, blending the academic and test-taking skills that have been essential to the success of Manhattan GMAT students around the world. The nation's largest GMAT-exclusive preparation provider, Manhattan GMAT was founded by Zeke Vanderhoek. A Yale graduate, Zeke taught as a member of Teach for America at New York City public junior-high school, earned a Masters in Philosophy & Education from Columbia University's Teachers College, and supplemented his day-job by tutoring individuals in various subjects at all educational levels. Word-of-mouth referrals soon brought in a remarkably high number of GMAT test-takers, and thus Manhattan GMAT and its prep guides were born.

The book is very comprehensive. I have studied several GMAT books and this one is by far the best for Sentence Correction. As the other review points out, this book does not contain many sample questions. I don't think that is a good reason to tank the book. The other books give you watered down study material with questions that don't exactly mirror the real test. If you want to get a good score, you will need to use many resources. This is the best resource for Sentence Correction.

Even though I like how the material is explained in the book, I give it only 2 stars because you need to buy 2 additional books to practice-The Official guide for GMAT 11th edition, and The official guide for GMAT verbal review. The book only refers to sertain pages from these 2 books where reading passages can be found, and gives answers, but doesn't provide passages themselves. The most dissapointing part of it is that the editor doesn't say anything about the other books that you ought to have in order to practice before you buy this book.
