Confusion in preparation [#permalink] New post 30 Oct 2012, 22:08
I'm new to this portal and so to GMAT too and this is one of the best and detailed site I have found available online.

Moving to my question, I come from an Engineering background and have given GRE for my MS and now after few years or working I'm giving GMAT. If I may be asking a repeated question(s), then, please divert me to the correct link on this site.

1. Since I have ' been-there-done-that' for GRE, how close/ discrete would be the experience of GMAT. By comparison, I'm looking for toughness/easiness in evaluation of sections and areas of focus by the evaluators

2. I have a Kaplan Verbal and Math Workbook to start with and plan to advance to either Kaplan Premier or OG'13 based. Which one do you suggest amongst the two as a better guide. I will be taking CAT test in some way, so please eliminate the 6 tests Kaplan as a reason to select Kaplan.

My plan is to complete GMAT in about 3 months prioritizing my work schedule, so here is a tentative plan, what do you think about the following.

Study Plan

Strategy and Real Questions : The Official Guide for GMAT
Verbal - Kaplan Verbal Workbook
Math - Kaplan Verbal Workbook
AWA - Book and some samples
Test Plan - Kaplan, Manhattan Test/ OG. GMAT site, few free one's

Thanks, looking forward for your guidance.

Well not many people use Kaplan Verbal and Math books are the books are quite mediocre. You may use them, however, if you are targeting say 600 or so but if you are aiming higher, you need more intensive stuff for Verbal.
Go through the GMATCLUB GMAT Verbal Books 2012 thread in my signature to see the recommendations.

I would buy a better set of books that teach the fundamentals. The OG books are great for questions. And as far as I understand the MGMAT and Veritias Prep books are good for helping you learn the underlying concepts.

Give Kudos if my post was helpful!
