I have my own MGMAT books. How can I register them to GMAT Toolkit, so that I can access the GMAT Toolkit version?

You can't do that now, sorry, but it's a great idea if you have purchased paper books and want to get access to them in GMAT ToolKit. We are going to discuss whether it's possible at our next meeting with Manhattan GMAT. We 100% support the idea and are going to work on it further, although it requires some additional verification work.

Ok, sounds good. Thanks for the clarification. For the very same reason I had to buy both the paper version, which I bought a while ago, and the kindle version, which I bought recently, of the verbal books. Now AGAIN, I don't want to spend another $10 per book for GMAT Toolkit version :( - well maybe I will, just for the curiosity :D. What would I get more here compared to the Kindle version?

I should be able to buy just once and be with it. Good that I have not bought a single Quant book, but weird that I have bought pretty much all the books/resources out there for Verbal - that balances my expenditure fairly well :D

The only benefit of having Manhattan GMAT books (in standard format) in GMAT ToolKit is just to have them "close" to other materials you have in GMAT ToolKit. There are other benefits but honestly they are rather secondary ones.

At the same time, we've introduced two books in "interactive format" and that changes everything. Now you are able to interact with books and keep stats. I've created video, so you can see what you can do with Sentence Correction book:



You also can open Library and play with a sample book in interactive format.

By the way, all explanations from OG Companion are integrated in the OG Tracker tool and you access them directly when you just need it most.

Wow. This is very very impressive. I wish I had it when I was starting my prep. Anyhow, I might just buy the MGMAT SC yet again.

Does OG Companion also have Verbal? The description only talks about PS and DS.

Ahh. Not for me then :( Anyways, too much resources already. Don't want to overload. I liked feature in the MGMAT SC, where you can drill down to the problems in OG. Thanks for your response Walker. Good luck!

I swear to God, I so want to. But man, sometimes you gotta sacrifice your desires for your necessity. And right now improving in Verbal to get past 40 is my necessity :p. On weekdays, I hardly get time to study; hence, I am investing all my available time on SC and RC (and if time permits CR). I will 100% try this weekend, after I give my 1st GMAT Prep :). If nobody has cracked you by then, I will give it a shot ;-)

I am sure this Game will give me some incentive to practice some Quant.

Wow!! Man, I bought the MGMAT SC interactive book. It is awesome. Loving it. I am gonna solve 1 set everyday during my lunch break at work - feels like I have the power of MGMAT SC in my palms now. I hope this helps me further my strike-rate in SC. Thanks dude and your team for this awesome feature!

Hope you guys make other books interactive as well, and thus serve the community. I know I won't be using the App by then to reap the benefits but I am sure others will :-)

Feature request: It would be awesome if the interactive book had Index (maybe also Search) capabilities. Let me elaborate.

This index could be Alphabetically ordered keywords relevant to GMAT SC. For eg. that, which, as, like, pronoun, relative clause, prepositional phrase, it, etc etc etc. Now here is the magic trick - when one click on one of items in the Index, the app will show you all the relevant places in the Book that keyword is illustrated in the order of relevance. One can go to the 1st suggestion and there should have a link to the next relevant item, or something like that.

Currently, I waste some time to flip through pages to get to the part of the book I want to review. Sometimes, it is very annoying.

This feature can further be extrapolated to something like Search. But it is very important that it is not just any random (Lucene like) set of search results, rather these results should be relevant to MGMAT SC book. This definitely needs a lot of work, or maybe not, but this will definitely be helpful to many; moreover, it will help engage your users :-)

Thanks! That's a great idea!

Yes, it probably requires a lot of work... and rather manual indexation.
