1. GMAT Math Books

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

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 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 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 [ 42 KiB | Viewed 623274 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 . - added 11/11/09 1936240122 [Reveal] Spoiler: Table of Contents Attachment: wordtranslations.png [ 24.83 KiB | Viewed 622382 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 - Added 2/5/2010 [Reveal] Spoiler: Table of Contents Attachment: mgmat_foundations_TOC.gif [ 24.12 KiB | Viewed 621914 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.

Interesting Second Tier Books Great Mathematics fundamentals review book.Strengths: 1. Great for a zero-knowledge start or for those who did not deal with maths problems for a long time. 2. Simple,straightforward and relevant 3. Extremely low price 4. 5 Stars on Amazon Weaknesses: 1. Technically not a GMAT-dedicated book 2. Lacks some of the more advanced areas Good Mathematics refresherStrengths: 1. Good book for starting from scratch. Weaknesses: 1. Many people have found this book too basic. 2. Lack of good strategies. Not a solid performer, even when it came out in 2005 Strengths: 1. Could be a good supplement if you need to master some of the more basic math areas 2. Contains 220 GMAT math questions 3. Price Weaknesses: 1. Statistics, Combinations/Permutations and Probability are not covered 2. Tricks are emphasized above fundamentals 3. Not suitable for solid math performers 4. 2nd edition, published in June 2005 - long overdue for an update and hopefully will use a better paper grade Table of Contents: [Reveal] Spoiler: Table of Contents Good coverage of Math Basics but numerous errors wipe out value; lacks difficult questions. Use the Foundations of GMAT Math instead Strengths: 1. Methodical - starts with very basics of number properties and how to add/multiply large numbers 2. Good coverage of topics and well organized though a bit strange with equations as the last chapter 3. Covers adequately probability and statistics, coordinate geometry in great detail 4. No overlap with other Kaplan GMAT Books Weaknesses: 1. A significant number of errors in questions and explanations 2. One-step questions only - nothing hard 3. No index and no single place for formula reference _________________ Founder of GMAT Club US News Rankings progression - last 10 years in a snapshot - New! Just starting out with GMAT? Start here...

I have started my GMAT preparation around 1.5 weeks back (wasn't much in touch with these types of quant or verbal qs in the last 4-5 years)....to comment on the Mcgraw book, that was the 1st one I got from a friend and started with it......with absolutely no pratice, I found the questions pretty easy, I could finish all the quant (taking less than 2 mins per qs on an average) and verbal qs (taking a few secs more than 2 mins/qs on average) with fairly good accuracy......thus I feel 1> the qs standards are not up to the mark at all 2> the reviews are not very detailed in some specific topics like permu-combi, probability etc. Then I got the OG12 this week and found the 1st 5 diagnostic tests (in the begining of the book) much different from what I saw in McGraw. I am planning to get Kaplan and some of Manhattan next week, I am happy that I did not spend much time on the McGraw one and then find out it's flaws nearer to the test date.

You can look though this thread gmat-books-ez-solutions-thoughts-76791.html But I'll sum it up for you. Apparently this company has its employees writing fake reviews on amazon and other web-sites. There was an attempt to do so on gmatclub site also. Since we find such a way of doing business not only inappropriate but also highly unethical, we removed our review on E-Z books from Best GMAT Math Prep Books thread. _________________ My Recent Posts: All GMAT CAT Practice Tests - links, prices, reviews Master thread - GMAT Prep classes links to reviews and ratings Review: GMATPrep (GMAT Prep) & PowerPrep (Power Prep) Tests Have trouble finding answers on this site?

I bought Manhattan GMAT Inequality and Geometry, I will highly recommend in case you want to work on the fundamentals of these 2 topics.

Thank you. I have also added the Star Rating system for the books (planning to split up the Manhattan GMAT Books next but that's too much work )

I am truly torn. After working through the math section of PR's Cracking the GMAT it is apparent that I need additional study. I'm deciding between some of the specific Manhattan books, the Kaplan math workbook, and now the new entrant, the Kaplan math foundations book.

I should note that I am less concerned with additional sample problems accompanied by many of the books, but most concerned with what gives the most thorough, succinct, correct instruction on math concepts. I'll be purchasing the official guide to make sure I have a gauntlet of questions to test out my knowledge on, once I've studied up.

Are the mistakes in the Kaplan Foundations book only present in the review questions, or are their some errors in the fundamentals they teach?

Are Manhattan's books worth the added expense? i.e. If I purchase 3 math review books from Manhattan I am looking at roughly $50+ vs$15 for either the Kaplan Math Foundations or Kaplan Math workbook? Is this a 'get-what-you-pay-for" situation?

I ask because I cannot find any of the Manhattan books at any local retailers, so I can't actually take a look at these books before purchasing.

Very valid question and I have been trying to figure out how to make the process of picking books easier.

I would say that the mistakes in the Kaplan Math Foundations are not very concerning - a few errors in the explanations are easy to spot. They are not in concepts or rules or theorems, so you are not learning baloney, just a few errors in the explanations/answer choices, which are minor. So, it is irrelevant for the majority of test takers except the pickiest, but I am sure the book will be condemned on Amazon as the result.

Here is my shot at it. I would say the best combination for what you are looking for is probably Kaplan Math Workbook with MGMAT Number Properties book.

Kaplan Math Foundations is much more thorough but basic and starts with how to multiply/divide numbers. It is not enough by itself - you would need another math book with harder Math Questions to practice.

MGMAT Guides are better than Kaplan Math Workbook in terms of explanations and learning presentation - they are the ultimate collection and having used them, you can be confident you covered all areas, though most people find that though they learnt the concepts, the books did not contain anything they did see in other books (except Number Properties book). In my opinion, it is probably not worth the extra \$ for all of the guides.

To summarize:
If you are completely bad and rusty with math - get Kaplan Math Foundations
If you are looking for a good time/money ROI, then Kaplan Math Workbook and MGMAT Number Properties
If you are looking for the ultimate high score/thorough coverage, then the MGMAT Guides.

My view about MGMAT books except SC Guide is not that great. Other MGMAT books lack in number of questions.
No dount to start with very basics, these guides might be helpful.

Also, i am under the impression that all high scorers usually refer to KAPLAN series and OGs.

I have a question here, I haven't tried, practising 1000 series questions. How much useful are these??
