I am surprised RC99 by Aristotle is not listed as well as SC Grail. Are these two sources (RC99 and SC GRAIL) any good?

Hey,

I'd recommend RC99 by Aristotle and also try Powerscore CR. I've heard some really good reviews on RC99 so yeah.

Well my gmat prep started last week but I am purchasing the RC99 today and using it to prepare for RC. I have heard good reviews about it so I think it will be a good buy.

Interesting point. We do have a review avaiable for one of the products, but my suspicion is that these resources are still building momentum. The website will probably include them soon!

If you want a guidebook, then the Powerscore RC Bible is an option. For question practice, the LSAT SuperPrep has 100 RC problems. But for free material, just go the RC forum and you can find a large collection of questions and discussions.

Thank you for bringing it up Bmillan! I will add it.
My rule of thumb was not to add e-books but I think it has grown big enough and will make an exception for this (and perhaps one more resource). Usually there are many e-books but I feel they are not REAL books since if they were, they would have been printed (it is so easy to do even GMAT Club has its own ultimate grammar book). However, I will add the SC Grail into the master list.

I have a feeling I need to review the list again and update it. MGMAT came out with the MGMAT Verbal Foundations book for one.

If you buy Kaplan Premier (make sure on the cover it says that tests are included) you will get all 6 online.
The instructions are in the book (you have a code you have to redeem)

See over here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html? ... ive=390957

I uploaded pictures of the book and instructions how to get tests.

For RC practice, you can try Veritas RC book. It has passages of varying difficulty. Some of them are the toughest that you could see on the GMAT (if you are aiming for a very high score).
