Inspecta83,

You would be well served by reading a lot of the different message threads here. There is some very good advice, and it all comes from people who have walked this path ahead of you. Most of the frequent contributors, from what I have seen, have been accepted at the schools of their choice, or are well on their way to admission.

In general the Official Guide 11th edition (OG11), OG Verbal, and OG Math texts from GMAC, are on virtually everyone's list. The same can be said of the Manhattan GMAT Prep (MGMAT) Sentence Correction (SC) guide.

After that thing get a little more spread out. If you need quant work, the consensus is that you can't beat the GMATclub tests for strengthening your Quant skills.

I, too, have just started this journey, and have chosen to spend my $$$ on the MGMAT guides (all of 8) in addition to a classroom group offered locally.

Best of luck on your journey!

Cheers,

cP

As for a "review" product, I'm not sure any of the "comprehensive" review things are as good as the Official Guides. These are retired questions so they're written exactly the same way the current questions are written. There is also a good mix of easy, moderate, and hard questions.

Second, I would say Manhattan books. SC is the bible of SC. Number properties is good to start. Plus, you get 6 full CATs when you purchase any book.

CR = PowerScore CR Bible. Enough said.

GMATClub Challenges. They're only $79 or you can meet the post requirements. They're awesome.

Some people have said they like the 1000 series of SC and CR, but I'm not that impressed with them. Some of the answers were wrong and there are no explanations unless you google a portion of the question and find the answer on a forum somewhere.
