Best math preparation - which one? [#permalink] New post 13 Oct 2006, 01:54
Hi, everyone! I need the best math preparation guide out there because my quantitative score is average (I want a lot of practice). :( I already purchased the OG book and the separate OG math guide..... Does anyone have other recommendations for good math review books? I heard that the Kaplan math problems are more difficult than the OG's....any feedback on this? I want a review guide with math problems that are similar to those found on the actual GMAT. Please help!! Thanks!! :-D

I have mgmat word problems and number properties. They are necessities. ALso, get the kaplan premiere program, it has a math outline in the back that is essential. After that, do the OG Math problems, all of them . . . at least twice, paying careful attention to the questions you get wrong or take too much time on.

Depends upon your current level.

If you are a Q 25~30 tester, then master the Kaplan Math Workout book.

If you are in the Q30~35 range, then go for McGraw Hill (12 tests) and Kaplan 800.

Assuming that you want to break into the low-mid Q40s (my current short term goal), then yes, the OG + supplementary guide + retired tests + GMATPrep (with reloads) should help.

Now, if you are already a Q45 batter aspiring for a 48+, the only recommendations I can offer are GMATClub challenges and ascenteducation.com. Somebody once said that the 4GMAT workbooks were very challenging too. 48+ is really "no man's land" for us non-engineering/humanities majors.

Finally, if and when you are ready to cross the Q50 to 51 mark (96 to 99%ile), do a search on all the kevincan posts in the math forum.

Good luck!
