When it comes to the grammar section, imagine you’re in the thick of the World Series of Poker. Put on your best poker face, and concentrate on the hand in front of you. Certain types of mistakes trump all others. Look first for mistakes in pronoun and subject/verb agreement, as these are the Royal Flush of grammar errors. You do not need to memorize lots of grammar rules, but to win this game you do need to understand the rules of pronoun and subject/verb agreement. Like a game, look first at the pronouns and verbs underlined and make sure all are correct. THEN, and only then, look at the other underlined words or phrases for mistakes. The stakes couldn’t be higher: ace this game and your prize is a college acceptance letter!
