Enough materials? [#permalink] New post 24 Sep 2005, 12:30
I am taking the GMAT by the end of Oct...I've been studying since June. I am just wondering, is this enough materials to boost up my score? I've been scoring in the 500s, but would like to get my score as high as possible. Should I purchase more materials or should I stick with all that I have currently? These are the materials that I have:

OG guide 10th Edition
Princeton Review 2005
Kaplan 2005
Kaplan 800
ETS Paper test (all 9)
Manhattan GMAT CD Rom
Prof Dave's
Nova's
Kaplan Math workout
Princeton Review verbal workout

Actually u already have more than u should use. Remember it is not about how many books u have covered, but rather how effectively u have utilized them -- the quality matters and not the quantity. Moreover, there is high risk of getting "too much" material all jumbled up and getting confused. Stick to official material and KAP and Princeton. From ur list I would rather delete Prof Dave's and Nova's as I think they are bad overall. Also, if possible, get OG 11th ed and not 10th. Also if u plan to study KAP 2005, then take out KAP 800, most of the questions on this are repeat from KAP 2005 and KAP workouts, hence not worth an extra dime.

Focus and approach ur prep with confidence. Keep ur prep time max to
3 months and u will be fine ! Good luck !

I only have one month left, is it even worth to get the OG 11th ed? Is there any repeat questions from the 10th edition?

Also the Kaplan 800, some people says that it's a must have for challenging questions, is that true or not?

There is no reason for u to replace OG with 11th ed now. 10th edition shud be enuf. I think ppl will need 11th ed for tests starting from Jan 2006. Regarding KAP 800, I didn't find it any hard (CR was lil better tho). I felt all types of questions in KAP 800 were of the same level as OG, specially OG's last set of quant questions can beat KAP 800's quant anytime.

I am still struggling with my verbal, should I use the Kap800 just for verbal then? I was told that it's best to use the LSAT materials for CR and RC. Have you used the Manhattan GMAT before?

Instead of KAP 800, it will be better to invest on one LSAT book (Next 10 Actual LSAT test): use this book only for CR and RC and also use one MGMAT guide for SC. Use this guide and OG for SC and u should be all set !

Don't buy the OG 11ed if you have the 10ed.

I believe that they are exactly the same thing.
