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 380809 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 380152 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 379791 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

for a final brushup, i feel MGMAT adv quant is very useful

Consider a Kudos if you find this post useful

in my opinion, LSAT books contain some very good verbal questions which goes into the depth of the subject, but i am not sure if such questions are useful for GMAT

my opinion was based on , short term preparation course. especially for non-natives

Hi,

I am considering using only Gmatclub's Math book. I have gone through about 20 pages and I feel like It is exactly what all the theory is needed for GMAT. Though I have Manhattan's Guides, I am afraid they may take quite some time.My exam is about in 45 days and so I am considering going through Gmatclub Math book and topic wise OG practice using the directory.My Target in quant is 49+. Will this work for me? Btw, I am a retaker and got Q44 in my first take.

Thanks,
Pavan.

Hi Pavan,

What is GC? would you please elaborate? If your exam is so near, i would suggest you concentrate on verbal more as it may take more time.

Hi, by GC I meant Gmatclub. Edited my previous post to remove this confusion.

Coming to verbal, I have been spending most of my time on verbal since about 2-3 weeks.

As a well wisher I would suggest complete OG and quant review 2 times each and nothing else would be required in quant. Easily u can score 49 in Quant

A good book for quantitative aptitude is by Arun Sharma. The book has some mistakes in the answer key but the level of questions is good...

Hi,


I just have question specifically related to quant prep, at the first page of posts you said that if

Rusty with Math or want to be very methodical - start with basics: Manhattan GMAT Foundations of GMAT Math

then in the same page for a particular user to mentioned

If you are completely bad and rusty with math - get Kaplan Math Foundations

I would like to buy the MGMAT quant set (would also like to know if thats a wise decision) but before that would like to get my fundamentals strong and clear thoroughly, so could you clarify among MGMAT and kaplan foundations which is the right book to pick up and start polishing my basics.

If the MGMAT quant set of 5 books is preferable which presently are
Fractions, Decimals, & Percents GMAT Strategy Guide, 5th Edition
Algebra GMAT Strategy Guide, 5th Edition
Word Problems GMAT Strategy Guide, 5th Edition
Geometry GMAT Strategy Guide, 5th Edition
Number Properties GMAT Strategy Guide, 5th Edition

So, Is buying the entire set preferable or buying few specific books from this set and other topics from some other publisher is prefered, and if it is prefered this later way then among the MGMAT which should I buy and which other publisher should I buy.

I would like get clarified with the which foundation of math to buy (either MGMAT foundation of math or Kaplan foundation of math) --have seen a few comments like MGMAT foundation has a lot of errors but those posts were quite old, now the fifth edition has come out so has these been taken care in the MGMAT foundation of math?

Once clarified with the foundation would like to know next which books to buy, either the entire MGMAT quant set (5 books -- will just following this entire cover all the quant topics in gmat? ) or topic wise separate publishers are preferred. I would like to get the best follow it to the end, once done will move to OG and others but until then to instil the hardcore confidence I would like to get myself completely clear with quant individually topic preparation.

Hope my post isn't intriguing but I just want to have a crystal clear path before in hand of what I need to do and follow. A detailed reply would really be helpful for me to decide which to buy and start my preparation as I rather weak in quant than verbal.

Have you guys tried out the Jay Stewart's Ultimate Guide to GMAT Math books? I'm considering getting them on Kindle so I could study on lunch, breaks and whenever I have time.

Hi everyone


Though I have asked this question to bb via PM , I want to present it to wider audiences so here it goes.

I am from Engineering background so have a pretty strong fundamental grasp on Maths. Having said so I started my preparation with the GMAT Math club book along with the questions tagged at the end of each chapter. Needless to say , I was rusty so the solutions were taking time. After consulting with some friends who have given GMAT , I got hold of Manhattan guides ( 5 Maths books). Now I am finding these books too trivial. For eg , there is no way lot many questions asked in this forum under 600-700 and 700 category can be answered if one refers to these books only. So my concern is whether Manhattan material is providing sufficient coverage for GMAT ?

Any pointers will be appreciated .

Hi guys!

I need your advice and help.

I finished the Official Math Review, 2d edition. After careful analysis I found must difficult questions and topics for me:

1)Word problems
2)Tough questions about divisibility, LCM and similar questions.
3) Probability and combinations.
4) Sets

I passed two Official free practice tests (from official GMAT website); my results of quant part: 1 attempt - 43Q
2 attempt - 44Q


I would like to pass the GMAT test in August and want to reach 49-51 in Quant.


I also read previous material on this site and made a decision to continue my preparation with following books:

- GMAT Club Math Book
- Manhattan set of math books

Is it the right choice for me?

Give me some advice :)
