If you are stressing out over the GMAT Verbal preparation, stop now! There is an easy and practical way to effectively prepare for this section.
It took two months of intense studying for Marina to get ready for the GMAT test. However, she thinks that if you spend three to four hours a day just on the Verbal part, you could master this section. For instance, in Sentence Correction there are specific patterns that you could learn by practice and apply to every single sentence, which ensures you zero mistakes for this part. Here are some advice on how to approach the material.
The Verbal part takes 75 minutes and consists of 41 questions. This is the last section of the GMAT exam, so you would already have done the other parts before that. This means you would be super stressed already, so take as many practice tests at home to prepare your brain for this stressful situation.

There are three types of questions in the Verbal section – Reading Comprehension, Sentence Correction and Critical Reasoning. We are focusing on the Sentence Correction part, as it is the one that you can really master. Basically, they will give you a long sentence with a lot of additional details that you don’t need for the answer of the question. In the sentence they would most probably give a basic grammar mistake that you would easily spot if it was incorporated in a simpler structured sentence. So what you need to do is to eliminate the parts that are not vital for answering the question and look at the sentence as if it’s the easiest sentence in the world.
The mobile app Prep4GMAT is very helpful for Sentence Correction practicing. It’s quite suitable if you are travelling and you don’t have a piece of paper or a desk to sit on. You can choose the amount of questions to start with, so it’s the best way to utilise your time while waiting for something.
Last but not least, don’t trust your ear. If you think that something sounds correct, always double check. We use some aspects of grammar incorrectly in our daily lives, thus sometimes we could be easily mistaken.
