2011年GMAC关于sc的idioms做出的最新的解释https://forum.chasedream.com/for ... 023&fromuid=1391407(出处: https://forum.chasedream.com/)


贴到自己这里来,免得到时候找不到了

The good folks at GMAC (makers of the GMAT) sent this message to Beat The GMAT this morning, to share with our community:

Quote:Idioms, Sentence Correction, and the GMAT Exam

Recently there has been some discussion and questioning about the role and place of idioms and sentence correction as they apply to the skills tested in the GMAT exam. Much of what has been written has been well-reasoned, but some of what has been written is only partially accurate or reflects some misconceptions. With this posting, I hope to put these two important pieces of the GMAT exam in their proper place within the context of what the exam measures and how.

Idioms:

The general categories of language-use skill tested in GMAT Sentence Correction items haven’t changed, and test takers do not need to do anything different to prepare for the Verbal section of the GMAT exam.

For years, GMAC has paid close attention to the growing international make-up of GMAT test takers and has worked to assure that the exam is not viewed as -- nor is it actually -- an American test. As the GMAT exam has expanded globally and been taken by more students from around the world, GMAC has continually made extra efforts to ensure that newly introduced GMAT items do not depend on familiarity with distinctively American expressions and usages. We have taken steps all along the way to ensure global fairness and appropriateness.

Still, every language everywhere in the world consists of idioms, or standard constructions that are not literally derived from the most basic rules of grammar and vocabulary. Some Sentence Correction items continue to pose reasoning tasks that incorporate English-language, NOT American, idioms. These are not intended to test specialized knowledge of colloquialisms and regionalisms.

Grammar in Sentence Correction:

In recent years, GMAT item writers have been concentrating on the reasoning aspects rather than the purely grammatical aspects of Sentence Correction skills. As always, test takers need to carefully read the prompt in order to choose the answer that produces the most effective sentence. This means that whereas two sentences may both be grammatically appropriate, the correct answer is the sentence that is most “effective” -- the sentence that better expresses the idea.

The end result is a GMAT exam that doesn’t test simply a person’s ability to memorize grammatical rules or recognize idioms for their colloquial meanings, but a test that rewards reasoning regardless of the test taker’s background.

The recent back and forth around whether idioms are in or out or how Sentence Correction works ignores the fact that the core purpose of the exam hasn’t ever changed, even as the way we treat certain categories in order to meet the needs of our ever expanding marketplace may have. The GMAT exam tests higher-order reasoning, and preparing for the exam remains an exercise in developing and exercising those skills.

同9月(准备考9月底)二战党啊,8.17号一战惨死
9月也是要开始申请季了(到现在文书啥的都没开始准备),G考的分数真的非常怀疑人生
难过了几天后最近在开始制定二战计划,有点无从下手的感觉...感谢楼主分享诺!
楼主现在每天有效学习时间有多长啊?总觉得每天刷题+复盘,时间很快就没有了......刷完题整个人也很累,想看看别的零碎知识点也非常低效.....

终于定下了日子...9月25号。9月的场次可真满,,差点就没考位了。其实还是自己怂了...

重新改了一下计划。多出来的几天可以有更多时间模考了2333(希望到时候能复习完o(╥﹏╥)o)

现在每天还是上午背单词看阅读,SC在看千行,CR倒是越发摸不到头脑了....今天找到了一个视频课,决定用之后的七天把它们看完。RC现在在写笔记了,看老师写的笔记觉得好有道理啊,自己就感觉提取不出来o(╥﹏╥)o

生活还是很甜的,,,超级甜,,希望一直甜下去

8月28日

今天不知道为什么进度有点慢...任务没完成...(所以今天晚上要不要熬夜呢...(/"≡ _ ≡)/~┴┴)

语法只做了10道题,框架笔记补充了一半,每天都会有新收获!希望方法是对的~

逻辑看了课程(orz又是削弱题...希望自己真的把削弱题搞懂了),明天把题目做完,然后核对答案。今天逻辑感觉很神奇的地方在于,老师说提取信息然后直接找GAP,第一次用这种方法做题感觉好神奇。。可是感觉这样做起来会很慢,,先练习一段时间再说叭

阅读,除了做了一套题以外,偶然看到了魔力学院的公开课,里面也讲到了阅读做笔记的方法,感觉还不错,可以一起食用~

-------
发现了一件令人崩溃的事...我发现在学校里面没有办法上Manhattanprep,但是在家里的WiFi就可以。我怀疑是因为校园网是公共网络的原因,但是我用手机给电脑连热点也上不去啊啊啊啊啊啊...orz这让我如何是好~

我看了陈虎平的视频课,跟着他的方法学来着。
今天还发现了魔力课堂的阅读公开课,也是讲怎么记笔记的。你可以看一下啦~
感觉大部分都是梳理框架,你可以试一下哪种好。
我也还在摸索,欢迎交流!!
