1. GMAT Math Books


1. Manhattan GMAT (MGMAT) Guides
Recommended for best results if you have the time.
Strengths:
1. Good balance between test taking strategies and background theory explanations
2. Single-topic focus of each guide allows the student to purchase only those guides that pertain to his/her weaknesses
3. Covered concepts are illustrated with examples that are conveniently assigned to either PS or DS section.
4. Access to 6 Online CAT's (same for each book)
5. Additional online practice question banks (different for each book)
Weaknesses:
1. Time and Money
2. Books themselves do not contain many practice questions (though online and OG 12 references more than compensate)
Notes: most often recommended guide is the Manhattan GMAT Number properties and MGMAT Word Translations




3. Veritas Prep Guides
Rival of the MGMAT bundle though a bit higher priced.
Strengths:
1. 12 total guides + an intro book for quant + test simulation booklet
2. Practice questions. Every one of the guides is packed with practice questions
3. Fresh questions; you probably have not seen them on forums/etc since these books have just been published

Weaknesses:
1. Price: $250
2. Spacing is a bit strange sometimes with only one question per page







3. Kaplan GMAT Math Workbook
A solid supplement to the Official Guide
Strengths:
1. Fairly comprehensive review of the basic math concepts needed for the GMAT
2. Structure of the book allows you to work from start to finish, building on previous skills learned
3. Sections devoted to Word problem and Data Sufficiency questions
Weaknesses:
1. Statistics, Combinations/Permutations and Probability are not covered
2. Questions do not reflect GMAT questions, but rather are designed to insure that the material is mastered
Notes: Recommended/most interesting problem compilation from Kaplan Math Workbook
Faster than going through the math MGMAT Guides, but also not as thorough




4. Official Guide for GMAT Quantitative Review
Great for additional math practice questions, but don't expect to find any strategies or math lessons here.
Strengths:
1. 300 real GMAT questions
2. Real GMAT questions retired from past tests
3. The practice questions are organized by level of difficulty
4. The practice questions follow actual GMAT test patterns - great to have one's ear trained.
Weaknesses:
1. The book does not contain any strategies
2. It does have a few short review sections but they are very weak
3. Mostly low and medium difficulty questions. Not very helpful to a person aiming to get above 700.
Bottom Line: this book is optional; usually OG 12 is sufficient by itself.









Notable Specialized Books - Arithmetic, Probability, Combinations, DS, etc


Combinations & Probability


Veritas Prep Combinations & Probability - added 08/24/10
[Reveal] Spoiler: Table of Contents
Attachment:
veritas_probability-TOC.gif
veritas_probability-TOC.gif [ 42 KiB | Viewed 410762 times ]

Dedicated Combinations and Probability Guide considered by many to be the best
Strengths:
1. Good strategies
2. Plenty of practice questions
3. Well organized and laid out

Weaknesses:
1. Possibly crosses into non-gmat section but a very minor concern



.

5. Manhattan GMAT Word Translations Guide - added 11/11/09
1936240122
[Reveal] Spoiler: Table of Contents
Attachment:
wordtranslations.png
wordtranslations.png [ 24.83 KiB | Viewed 410070 times ]

Contains material on Combinations and Probability
Strengths:
1. Coverage of combinations and probability
2. Coverage of Statistics and Overlapping sets problems
3. Comes with 6 MGMAT tests
Weaknesses:
1. As with all MGMAT Guides, lacks practice questions and relies on the Official Guide for additional practice. If you have covered the OG, you may have to look elsewhere for practice, such as GMAT Club's free collection of probability questions: combinations-permutations-and-probability-references-56486.html






6. Manhattan GMAT Foundations of GMAT Math - Added 2/5/2010
[Reveal] Spoiler: Table of Contents
Attachment:
mgmat_foundations_TOC.gif
mgmat_foundations_TOC.gif [ 24.12 KiB | Viewed 409702 times ]

Great for refreshing math concepts and building confidence in math
Strengths:
1. Works well with other MGMAT books (structured in a similar way)
2. Best book for brushing up on long forgotten math concepts (fractions, powers, etc)
3. Comes with additional online practice questions
Weaknesses:
1. The book has 400 practice questions but they are not in a GMAT format, rather a math-textbook format
2. Long! 300 full-size pages - I think the expectation is that you skip parts that you know
3. No access to MGMAT tests that usually are included with all of the other 8 guides
Notes: recommended instead of the Kaplan Math Foundations. See a very detailed review of the Foundations of GMAT Math by a member

Okay so I'm at a wee bit of a loss. I have now looked at quite a few quant prep books, and own a lot of them, to ensure a top quant score. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a cohesive and uniform consensus between what I am reading here on GMAT Club and what I see when reading GMAT Club's Amazon reviews. For instance, Total GMAT Math by Jeff Stackman and Nova's GMAT Math Prep Course are rated very highly on Amazon by GMAT Club, but Nova appears nowhere on this site and Total only appears under the Self Prep - Verbal GMAT Prep tab. (weird) GMAT Club states on Amazon that Total is "The most complete GMAT Math Guide hands down", and that Nova is really geared for those who are looking for a 700+ score, stating that it is "a nice alternative to Kaplan and MGMAT" and "the best use for this book if you are aiming for a high quant score and willing to sweat for it". So what's the deal? I am aiming for a high score and willing to sweat for it and am prepping from the cobbled ashes of my jurassic math past. I have bought all of MGMAT's quant books (including Foundations and Advanced GMAT Math), have Kaplan's Math Workbook, Probability for Dummies and now I see that Total is "the most complete" and that Nova is only for those "willing to sweat for it" as if it were the Everest of GMAT Math books.

What is an ambitious GMAT rookie to do? :?

Thank you for doing such diligent research.
I have to say those reviews were written independently of each other (and some books were reviewed earlier than others so the comparison was not done per se on each book).

I would start with the MGMAT Guides - they provide a great balance of material, questions, and ease of understanding.

i would also recommend the MGMAT Math Foundations. Does this help?

Hi,
I'm new to the forum and a bit lost on all these quant books.

A friend of mine, who has already passed the GMAT, would sell me his Manhattan GMAT Set 4th editition for a good price.
Should I take this offer or wait for the 5th edition? Do you think it's worth spending extra money on? Because I would also buy Avanced GMAT Quant and additionally I have a ton of material from a GMAT prep course so I would have a lot of material to work with.

So basically I have two questions:
1) Quant section: Is the 4th edition good enough if you also have other sources for practice (OG, material of the GMAT prep course, gmatclub forum)?

2) Verbal section: What about the SC book? Should I buy the latest edition? I'm asking for this one specifically because this seems to be the holy grail of SC and will be my primary source (and because I'll definitely look into other books for CR and RC).

bb, he made a really good point. In my initial research, I too stumbled upon other books, particularly Sackmann's Total Math as highly regarded yet very seldom mentioned on here. Did you get in a fight with that guy or something? Why is it no good?

hey guys,

I find very interesting this post. I am starting to study the GMAT, although I have been some months thinking about it.

Such a lot information really quite desperates me, because there are many books, and many resources so I don't know which way or strategy to chose. So time is goes by. I don't know if some of you had this similar situation, although I see that many of you have good strategies and are very focus on what you want, and how are you going to pursue your goals.

The point is, if you had to start now to study Quant section, and only you had to choose one book, which one would you take? I already have Official Guide 12th, but once I started with math section I saw in this forum that it was a mistake to start with this book, because it is better for practice.

Are the recomendations the same than 3 years ago? (date of the initial post) with Kaplan Math Workbook? or are there any updates in your recommendations. I asked for the math section because I'm starting to study GMAT, but I also appreciate recomendations for verbal section.

I am available to contact all of you that are in the same situation, so we can share our study experiences :)

Thank you very much! :wink:

best,
madmal

I am planning to start my quant prep. with MGMAT number properties and word translations followed by OG and complete all this in a month. My aim is to score 48-50 and I am not bad at quant. Do i need any other book that can help me achieve my target? Do I need to set aside some more time for quant? Please suggest...

Hi Everyone,

I have begun preparing for the GMAT and like many others need some advice on books. I have started with Kaplan Premiere all in-one, but to be honest the math is really giving me a headache. I have heard that the Kaplan books are pretty tough. Since it seems to be unreasonably tough, would anyone recommend a book that might help to brush up basics before stepping into more complex study material like Kaplan?

Thanks in advance for any feedback!

Mc650,

I thought the manhattan GMAT books were good for refreshing basics. They aren't extremely challenging but will help refresh you before jumping into more difficult material.

I currently have the MGMAT Number Properties book. This book does reference other books. Since I am completely rusty with Math should I get those referenced books or should I just move on to the Kaplan books? ANy suggestions would be very helpful.

Just to give a background, I started with GMAT preparation; i'm an engineer academically and passed in 2009.

I will be applying for 2014 fall session and planning to give GMAT in the coming couple of months. My math skills are better than my verbal skills.

Just a week ago, I started with a couple of books—Kaplan Math Workbook and Kaplan Verbal Workbook, going by the Standard Plan as I don't have a lot of time over the week to study.

In a week, I was able to complete all the questions in Math Workbook's first 3 chapters out of 5; and in my opinion, I just wasted my money; they appeared to be very easy (Even the advanced ones).

My question is that, shall I switch to a tougher book or this would be suffice for GMAT Math?

Hello bb/bunuel, I was wondering if we should mention our "GMAT club Math book" in this table/list of books. Its a good read for those who are prepping up for Quant.
