Hey, I'm new to the forum. Just been looking around for a few days now.

I am gearing up to sit my GMAT exam early next year and looking to self study. I've looked through the prep section and narrowed it down to:

The Official Guide 12ed
The 8 Book Manhattan Series

Will this be enough prep to go from start to finish? Ideally, 2/3 months of study before the exam. Also would it be worth buying the Kaplan Premier with the prep listed above?

Thanks

I think this is very good material to start with. You can buy books for improving individual sections such as PowerScore CR , Aristotle SC Grail. After going through concepts, you can buy GMAT Club tests or question bank from Kaplan or Knewton.

I don't think you need the Kaplan Premier on top of what you have (only if you want additional tests perhaps - \$30 is not going to change much).

P.S.

Thank you. I was just worried that the official guide and MGMAT wouldn't have much on strategy and how to approach the test.

Considering your other study material, skip the Kaplan Premier book. It would be redundant and may introduce a certain level of burnout. Everything else looks fine. Good job at picking the right books!

If you need more practice questions, visit the GMATClub forums or use GMATClub Tests. That should be enough for a solid performance on the test.
