Hi,

Please let me know what is the difference between 11th edition and the 13th edition of the Official guide. Is there only few questions added or a totally new question bank has been prepared. Actually I have the 11th edition. Please suggest what should I do?

Also I have the Verbal Review and the Math review - original edition and not the latest 1st edition.

Please guide. Thanks
Pooja

Expert's post
You should get the OG13 edition -- there some question types that have been phased out or decreased in proportion. Between OG12-13 approximately 12% of the questions were removed and replaced with newer versions. The changes are subtle but over 2 editions, OG11 will not be representative of the exam so you're better off getting the OG13. In just 1 section for example, there are more "complete the argument" questions and "helps explain". in SC, idioms have gradually been phased out so that international students are not at as much a disadvantage for not knowing some of these idioms.

Verbal and math review books are fine -- at the minimum you should update to OG13 -- there's also the integrated reasoning section that is missing in older sections.

You won't necessarily bomb the exam if you stick with OG11 -- but if you're looking to max your score go for OG13. Read a review of the OG13 for more info.
