Video: Identifying Sentence Structure Errors

Posted in Test Prep on January 14, 2011 by

We recently a released a new and improved on-demand video player in our GMAT course, and to spread the word we’re releasing the first Sentence Correction lesson in nine handy installments. If you’re looking to improve your score in SC, be sure to watch all the videos for expert advice on this tricky section.

The second installment of the lesson, shown above, is all about how to identify sentence structure errors on the GMAT SC section.  As expert teachers Dave Ingber and Jen Rugani illustrate, sentence structure errors most often occur when:
  • There is no main subject or main verb.
  • No verbs correspond with the main subject.
  • Clauses are not connected correctly.

Watch the video to learn how to spot, and fix, all of the above errors, and be sure to stay tuned for the next SC lesson installment!
