Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I know, quite a lot already but i prefer studying from books than attending workshops. Now i'm wondering: is there any sense in getting Manhattan's books, e.g. on sentence correction, on top on what i've got already?
Sounds like you decided to take a trip to Barnes and Noble and pick out random books on GMAT. I hope you saved your receipt because many of us (high GMAT scorers) used pretty much same book during our prep.
thanks for the quality response! you were pretty right about my stroll down to barnes & noble. shame on me... so i hear for high scores kaplan is not very good? at least for an intro though? or should i be good with your list?
ive got kaplans verbal workbook, math workbook, premier program, gmat 800, the official guide and project gmat's advanced math. i know, quite a lot already but i prefer studying from books than attending workshops. now im wondering: is there any sense in getting manhattans books, eg on sentence correction, on top on what ive got already?
ninkorn has covered the best of books available for GMAT as of today .........
Thanks for the list. I am curious to understand how the OG quant questions are broken down by difficulty? Are they broken down by level of difficulty in OG 11?
All the three OGs have questions in increasing order of difficulty ..... but it is not possible to find the exact level of difficulty of each item ... So the first few questions are easier than the next few ... and so on ... This means the last few questions are the toughest in the OG ...
Hope this helps

first very helpfull forums and information, thank you all for taking the time to enlighten us. I am a structural Engineer meaning math is definitely my strength)
I am Planning to buy these books and I am wondering if they are compatible with each other:
1) Sentence Correction - Manhattan GMAT SC (From the forums i learned it refers to OG 12th ed. and OG Verb. 1st ed.) 2) Critical Reasoning - Powerscore Critical Reasoning Bible 3) Reading Comprehension - MGMAT RC (Would have liked to get GRE Prep for RC from Princeton Review but it seems like it is geared more towards GRE) 4) Official Guide for Verbal (I would have to get the first edition for it to be compatible with MGMAT SC) and is this one needed?
1) MGMAT Guides (Does this one seem excessive for an engineer?)
