In this video, I show you the 2 Part Study Method of the GMAT Pill Study Method-SC.
1) 10 Core Frameworks (roughly 90 minutes) – Every GMAT sentence correction question falls into one of these 10 frameworks. Master these and you’re half way there.
2) Test Questions (roughly 275 minutes) – Videos showing thought process for 600 and 700 Level (Medium and Difficult) Questions will be shown. These questions are not exactly the same, but are *very similar* to Official Guide questions. Great for preparation. Go through these and you’ll know how to apply the 10 core frameworks in the context of test questions.
As you may know from the About Us page, I was hesitant about showing these techniques to people other than my close friends. But my friends got such great results in such a short amount of time that they convinced me otherwise. You can now follow the GMAT Pill Study Method, which is as close to a real private tutor as you can get–for a fraction of the cost. For less than $15/hour you will receive the highest quality instruction for sentence correction you’ll find anywhere!
Sure, you may be more comfortable with big names like Kaplan and Princeton Review, but when it comes to value for your dollar (bang for your buck), there’s no question the GMAT Pill Study Method wins out. Get in before we become more popular and raise prices as more people learn about our study method.
We fit everything you need to know for sentence correction in just under 5 hours of videos. Your time is limited. Quality is more important than quantity.

(A) music that during the time was prominent primarily because of the works of J.S. Bach
(B) music that was, during the time, prominent primarily because of J. S. Bach’s works

Why has the GMAT Pill Study Method been so successful with students?
This question is best answered by our students who have gone through the process:
“So even though regular private tutoring seemed like the best option at first, I quickly realized that the GMAT Pill Study Method was actually more effective and efficient–AND a lot cheaper!”
–Ryan, Graduate Student, Columbia University
“So I ended up emailing Zeke only a few times (I was expecting to email constantly!) and I was glad a few videos were modified as a result of my questions for the benefit of other students.”
–Jim, Financial Analyst, New York
“The GMAT Pill helped me look at questions in a totally different way. I felt like I was taking apart the question, not the other way around.”
–Cynthia, Paralegal in Los Angeles
“For someone like me who is skeptical with things online, I would say I actually learned more in the 2-3 days I spent with these videos (few hours each day) than I did in the MONTHS of surfing the web for questions.”
–Anne-Laure, Consultant in Paris

How do I know if I qualify for this product?
You do NOT qualify for the Sentence Correction Pill if:
1) You learn best with traditional book and pencil, even though you do realize the real exam is in front of a computer.
2) You are already a writing guru and edit major newspapers for grammar mistakes on a regular basis. Acing the sentence correction is no problem for you.
3) You actually enjoy learning in the context of fancy grammar terms. Somehow terms like participial phrase, rhetorical construction, or gerund turn you on or give you the perception that you are actually “learning.”
4) You have all the time in the world to study for the GMAT (you are unemployed or on a summer break)
If you fit the above profile, then this product is NOT for you.
You DO qualify for the sentence Correction Pill if:
1) You want to learn in the environment that best simulates the real exam (in front of a computer)

3) You want to learn everything you need to learn in plain, simple English with CLEAR diagrams and voice narration.
4) You are a busy professional with limited time to study. You spend as little time as possible but still have the confidence to do well.
If you fit this profile, then you should take the Sentence Correction Pill.
