Session # 1

Session Name SC1-Importance of Meaning

Pre-Session Work e-GMAT SC Diagnostic

Session Coverage Typically students skip the most important step while solving SC questions understanding the meaning. In this session, we prove the importance of this step by solving questions. We show how you would solve the question correctly if you do this step and how you will answer reach incorrectly if you do not do this step. In this session we discuss grammatical parallelism. We understand what it means when we say that the list must be logical parallel. We solve 4 difficult questions that test these basic concepts of parallelism. We also cover the concept behind imperfect lists. We see how verb-ed words can be parallel to verb-ing words. In this session we will resolve a few doubts about the use of past perfect tense. We will discuss when past perfect tense is incorrect and when it is optional (and hence not incorrect). We will also explore the concept of "related events". We will solve 3-4 difficult questions by using the step by step method. We will discuss how

noun modifiers modify and will solve a few questions by using step by step method. We will show how you should use meaning/context to determine if the modified entity is the closest noun or the head of the noun phrase. We discuss another dreaded topic in this session - comparisons and ellipses. We show how if you think about the sentence in logical manner, even seemingly difficult questions involving comparisons, can become easy. We also comprehensively cover often confused words – as and like. We discuss the source of confusion and teach you the methodology of avoiding mistakes. Students are typically scared of verb-ing modifiers. We will show how these modifiers can be used in various different ways.

We will start the session with how to approach prethinking and apply the approach to 5-7 problems. The goal will be to prethink multiple assumptions for each problem. Since finding assumptions is the foundation for Strengthen, Weaken, and Evaluate question types, this concept is a great first concept.

We will tackle six 700+ level problems in this...
