1/22

今天做了SC和RC. RC其实就是做阅读小分队的训练,以后就坚持下来作为routine了,不再写进日记了。

SC: Verbal Review 2nd, Q# 101-113
错得挺多的,6个...
花了很多时间分析错题,写下来了每道题自己当时咋想的。很多错误都是technical error(区别于content error或者careless error)。错误原因大体如此:在时间紧迫的条件下,看到正确选项的某种不顺眼就草率地排除,然而却对错误选项的错误缺乏acumen,或者举棋不定搞不清出题老头的preference。
我看不顺眼立马排除的但是又是正确的:
.... than were sb. (倒装结构,这种很典型)
", to be sighted" ——今后看到这种就得推断:前面是个插入成分
(动词时态有时候两种皆可)
"In A.D. 391, ...., later generation ..." (我以为in要用after才合适)
而我对错误选项的meaning issue (ambiguity, pronoun's lack of reference, ...)不敏锐!
下一步按计划做prep语法笔记,多见一些题能够多体察GMAT的审美观价值观,然后回顾OG中的meaning issue。

另:这两天断断续续背单词,Word Smart List 3 finished, previous lists reviewed.

1/23

今天除了小分队的阅读就只做SC了。
开始prep08,先做第二套题(因为有仿真界面版的可以方便计时做)。
#152-165,错了一个#159

错的那道嘛,充分体现了GMAT SC的喜好。我后来就看Manhattan论坛这道题的讨论,然后顺着cross-reference看相关题的讨论,看啊看啊花了好长时间,然后就有疏通脉络的感觉,很神奇~以前不太缺定的几个问题也都明白了。话说那个Ron真太厉害了!我在想要不我速度过完prep笔记就去把他以前的录音拿来听。

----------------------------------------
Ambiguous Pronouns

so, a takeaway for you:
the rules on ambiguous pronouns are NOT absolute.

there are only two ABSOLUTE RULES for pronouns:
(1) the pronoun must stand for a noun that is actually PRESENT in the sentence;
(2) the pronoun and the noun must MATCH IN TERMS OF SINGULAR/PLURAL.

---------------------------------------------------

THAN后面的倒装结构(这就是我昨天纠结的,现在明白了)

* if you have just a noun - WITHOUT modifiers - in the second half of your parallel structure, then you can place the helping verb ("do", in this case) EITHER before OR after that noun.
ex:
i know more about shakespeare than my brother does. --> correct
i know more about shakespeare than does my brother. --> correct
in this case, the first one (helping verb AFTER the noun) is usually preferred, because it flows more naturally, but either is correct.

* if you have a noun followed by modifier(s) in the second half of your parallel structure, then you MUST place the helping verb BEFORE the noun.
ex:
i know more about shakespeare than my brother, who has never studied literature, does. --> WRONG
i know more about shakespeare than does my brother, who has never studied literature,. --> correct

in this problem, "branches" is followed by a modifier ("from trees"), so you MUST place "do" before it.

...than do branches from trees --> correct
...than branches from trees do --> WRONG

------------------------------------------------
PUNCTUATION

the words "however" and "therefore" are not used in american english as they're used in british english.
in british english, these words are used as coordinating conjunctions, in the same way as are and, or, yet, and the like. in american english, on the other hand, you CANNOT use them as coordinating conjunctions; you have to use them in the same way as words/constructions such as nevertheless, despite all of these things, etc.

for instance:
i left home twenty minutes early, however i was still late. --> i think this is correct british usage, but it is WRONG WRONG WRONG in american english.
i left home twenty minutes early; however, i was still late. --> correct american usage. note the semicolon (which could also be a period, if these were longer sentences) and the comma, BOTH of which are essential.
