Manhattan Set

Kaplan Math and Verbal workbook

Not sure if you need the 2 workbooks.... maybe. The MGMAT guides are pretty detailed.
I could only suggest their new Advanced GMAT Quant book that came out this week

Quote:
In the above combination, I am getting 2 Free tests(GMAC) and 6 manhattan tests. Are these enough? Are the various free tests available online any good?

Does Kaplan workbooks come with any tests or Only Kaplan Premier has the tests? In which case, should I buy the Kaplan premier only for the tests?

The workbooks do not. Only the Kaplan Premier.

You may want to have access to those, just to have them, so I would get the Premier esp if you burn through the MGMAT ones.

hellow,

from your experience what OG QUANT represents most the real test:
OG 10
OG11
OG12
OG QUANTITATIVE

i went through most of OG 10 AND BESIDES THE LAST 50 Q most quant is easy-medium level.

OG 12

It has the latest set of questions but they are not super hard either. The supplements are definitely on the easier side.

OG 10 is not bad either - it has a lot of questions overlapping with the GMAT prep software. Just FYI.

Dear advanced users,

Is there someone who succesfully combined classes (preferebly on-line) and also bought self-study materials? Does it make sense to combine different study materials?
Please, share your experience.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Guys,

I am new here and new to GMAT. Still navigating this site but already found the tonnes of useful tips and info.

I have just purchase used books - Official GMAT Guide 12ed, Official Quant review 1ed and Official Verbal review 1ed. Likely to also get the Manhattan guides too.

Just these are enough to take up a good amt of space on my table!

Hi ,
I am a GMAT newbie.

I started with the idea of studying again only last week,enquired with universities and just started researching on GMAT yesterday night.

If there is one source that has proved most invaluable to me in kickstarting my preparation as far as preparatory materials are concerned, its this source. so i will remember this thread for long.

So far i have got the OG 12 th edition,Manhattan 8 set.

i want to enquire if OG verbal and quant are really required? or for that matter kaplan's math/verbal workbook to the premier cd?

i am planning 2 month preparation for a sept 15-20 CBT making use of kaplan,manhattan and OG. Is this sufficient preparation for someone aiming for high scores typically?

i didn't understand the power score part. where would powerscore guides be required?

since i am going for the CBT, i don't have to bother about test simulation book let?

Also i checked the practice scores links.Most sources have only one or two free tests. i was planning a series of tests in the last 25 days (like the ets gre tests of old).

is there a single test that offers plenty of practise tests? liek the gmat of the past? or is it all covered by the OG?

You should be good with the materials you have. Start working through the 8 MGMAT Guides; they come with 6 online cat tests - those should be good. Get GMATPrep as well and you should be fine.

Thanks.

I found info earlier in the thread there is no overlap between OG and OG verbal/quant. is the kaplan verbal or math workbook different enough from the premiere to require seperate purchase? or premiere is the one you recommend? hope to purchase it today based on the input.

I have both Kaplan workbooks and Premier 2010 and yes I did find some overlap( around 30-40%)
Though Kaplan 800 has some real good questions

kaplan 800 is included in the premiere or you are talking the 2008-09 edition? what are the material included in the premiere.

so i guess that the kaplan work books will give me some extra preparation atleast.

I think Aristole SC Grail should get the place in the standard plan and Wren & Martin in the comprehensive plan ...just my 2 cents..
