Best books for limited study time [#permalink] New post 06 Nov 2010, 11:59
I'm in the Army and currently deployed in Afghanistan. I work 90+ hour weeks and am under a decent amount of stress. I plan on taking the GMAT in Feb before I come back to the states as they have a testing center in Bagram Air Base where I can take the test for free.

I've been out of school for about 2 years, so I know I need some books with the basics still covered. I'm trying to find prep books, but don't want to overwhelm myself with too much since my time is limited. I'm aiming for a 650 on the GMAT.

What I'm thinking about getting is GMAT Premier by Kaplan along with the OG 12th Edition or both Verb and Quant OGs. Would this be sufficient for a 650 with limited time or would you recommend other books? Also, should I get the OG 12th Edition or both the Verb and Quant OGs?

Any other advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

My advice: OG 12 and Manhattan GMAT set. Don't be intimidated with 5 books in the mgmat set, as the books are short and easily read. If you need additional questions, get og verbal or og math.

Good luck!
