遇到搞不懂的题搜索一下那个论坛好了,解释得很精彩。Ron is probably the most popular instructor at Manhattan GMAT, and he leads a free online study hall every other Thursday.

曼哈顿论坛?在哪里~~~~~ Ron何许人也??? 我好多东西不知道啊。。。。

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。

1/24

除了小分队阅读,就搞SC了....而且也没做prep笔记,就看Manhattan的Forum、听Ron的课堂录音、复习相应的Manhattan SC章节和相关的题目、在SC版灌水,基本围绕comparison这个话题吧,还是收获颇丰的。

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
感想:就是强调logic....Identify what is being compared.
不用记那些比较的语法结构然后看属于哪一类pattern,只需要check grammatical parallelism and, in particular, LOGICAL PARALLELISM.  

我发觉有些特殊的句型,其实也是“万变不离其宗”。
比如好几道题正确答案都有"As be the case with ..., " nn们总结了出来,可以当作考点记住。然而,作为non-native speaker,我无法保证真正考试的时候就都是我见过的句型。  
只需要知道 "As" should be followed by a clause or by a prep. phrase, not by a noun.
然后错误选项"As with the case of traditional pharmacies, online drugstores ...."
解说:"with" does not make literal sense! 什么叫"drugstores with the case of ..."?
只需要知道basic rules,然后体会那个“宗”——句意/逻辑,就可以迎刃而解。

其实还是有点疑惑呼唤点拨讨论

看到个有意思的评价,copy到这里再说

there are, occasionally, things written in the OG SC answer keys that are actually incorrect.
(also, these answer keys are VERY often incomplete - often neglecting to mention the most conspicuous mistakes!)
it's obvious that the answer keys are written by their less skilled writers, and that the problems themselves are written by their "A"-team, so to speak.

看来要以批判的眼光看OG。
------------------------------
note that they will NEVER include an answer that is only incorrect because it's "awkward".
they may include such options in answer choices, mostly to give a compensatory advantage to people with a very subtle understanding of the English language.  (by "compensatory" i mean that this sort of linguistic skill would help balance the scales for verbally talented individuals, given that there is an entire quantitative section on this exam.)  however, you will never have to make such distinctions to solve a problem.
------------------------------

don't try to fix sentences!
even though this section of the test is called, ironically, “sentence correction”, you do not need to be able to fix the sentences; you only need to be able to select the correct answer choice from the choices given.
trying to fix the sentences is an irrelevant skill set; if you do too much of this, it will distract you from the skill set that you actually need.  moreover, most users' attempts to fix sentences create numerous other errors, many of which are outside the scope of what is tested on the gmat.

if you want extra practice using correct constructions, DO NOT rewrite the current sentences; instead, make your own (much simpler) examples that use those constructions.

“老美”也在发牢骚。

看样子lz 在增加此帖的含金量,给与最热烈的掌声。。

看此帖之前,发现这么大段英文,本来不想看的, 说明自己对英文阅读还是有抗拒感的,

后来告诉自己,当阅读看吧,有收获。。。

惭愧啊.....今天就泡论坛了,看Manhattan的论坛真容易上瘾..........
语法笔记没接着做,CR Bible也没看....
明天要系统地学习

哈~我觉得看Manhattan论坛很有趣的,看各种千奇百怪的问题,Ron他们怎么应对的,太精彩了.....上瘾了咋办?
就算不上瘾,经常这道题连接那道题,然后再连接又一道题,follow下去,半天一天就过去了,苦恼中......

不过倒是收获挺大的.....

放些个好玩的在这里吧,不看笔记凭印象写

1.
My brother tricked me, disappointing dad.
I was tricked by my brother, disappointing dad.

Why was dad disappointed, in each case?

2.
"the time that we were scheduled to meet"
What's the problem here?

3.
I have never heard of bees stinging dogs.
I have a photo of my brother playing soccer.

Why is the 1st sentence wrong, while the 2nd correct?
