Thanks for the review bb.
2 questions -
1) Do you think it is necessary to have completed the previous Manhattan GMAT quant books before we pick this one up? Are some strategies revisited or referenced? The reason I ask is because I have never read the other Manhattan GMAT books. I am retaking the GMAT in July and I am currently scoring in the 44-46 range. I am working towards a Q49 or Q50. I just finished revisiting all the basics in Total GMAT Math and I am going to move on to the Extreme Challenge Set by Jeff Sackmann.
It is OK. As long as you are scoring at 44+ range, you should be fine. I think the book is very helpful for the advanced use. I am not 100% clear as to how holistic it is but will definitely help at $15 level. I liked it quite a bit (but this was based on 2-3 hours going through it). I have not covered every question at this point.

2) How do you compare the 150 questions and the explanations in Advanced GMAT quant to the 100 questions in the Extreme Challenge Set?
Let me ask this to the MGMAT team and see if they have a good answer. _________________

Hey bb, A really helpful review, indeed! Before I order this book, I just want to know if this book will be something worthy side-by-side the GMATClub.com's Math Tests? Thanks in advance!

Great review! My experience with Manhattan is that they`re great with question solving strategies and with explaining concepts, but produce sample questions which vary in quality and organization. This book seems to hold up with what I`ve seen.

Hey bb, thanks for the review! I am going to purchase this book from Amazon, can you just verify that I am buying the right book because I thought it was coming out on the 31st but apparently its already out on Amazon :S. Anyway, here is the link _________________

I have not covered every question yet, so can't speak very intelligently from that perspective. On the surface, the book is very good, esp the explanations but the question count is about \(\frac{1}{4}\) of the GMAT Club test content and then you have the questions in the book vs. actual test timed experience. They are two slightly different things.

This is a thorough explanation! Thank you! My book arrived yesterday but I don't plan on touching it until I go through the other 5 MGMAT Math Guides! I am scoring around 43 for Quant so I think this book should help me out. _________________

Nice post Ravish. Could you let us know approximately how much time it takes to cover the entire book? I will probably want to solve just about enough problems to get a handle over the key concepts introduced in the book.
Hey BB, thanks for your review. I request your thoughts here too.
I have just about 4 weeks left for my GMAT and I have started with the GMAT Club tests with a plan to take one test every day. I am learning a great deal from these tests and was wondering whether you think it worth the time to go over this book? I have reached a reasonable success rate on the OG12 problems and I do score consistently above 45 on the MGMAT Quant section, but I still struggle with timing on the 700-800 level.

Thanks for the quick reply Ravish. I guess I'll go ahead and order the book while I ponder over how I am going to find the time to study it. I am hoping that even if I were to consume only about 50-60% of the book in the time I have remaining before the GMAT, it would be beneficial.

@BB, one more question-this one is relaively dumb,,i have neve bought books from AMAZON, if i buy the Adv. Math or any other new MGMAT strategy guide from AMAZON instead of the MGMAT website, should it still give me the access to the online material, the 6 CATS for example which are my main necessity right now. I have this question because the same new books are cheaper on AMAZON than MGMAT website.

hi desiaggie, this book doesn't gives you access to 6 cats. I have bought this book myself , the book offers some online practice questions though not the 6 cats. Regarding your other question, yes if you buy any one of the 8 guides of manhattan through amazon you do get the access 6 practice cats. Your question was not directed at me, but i have answered, hope you don't mind.

Awesome review. This book just came out at the end of May 2011?
I can't believe it my luck! I just finished studying all of the MGMAT series last week, and I am stuck at Q45 (77% percentile). I even posted in the forum that I was lost and didn't know what to do after the MGMAT series. I guess this is next!
