All Manhattan GMAT books are available for in-app purchase for $9.99 each. the Sentence Correction book has a specially developed interactive format that makes it easy to use on the go. Other books are in ebook format. We will contact Manhattan GMAT about the Integrated Reasoning book and I keep you updated.
Thanks Walker. I think I will try it out and give it a go.
I am looking to start studying for the GMAT soon. My initial goal is to take the test prior to the switch in early June, but I know that that may be unrealistic. That's weird for me to say that, since less essay writing is fine with me! I just feel that the IR section is too new for people to have a good feeling about preparing for it.
1) Does the ToolKit currently account for the IR section?
2) Are there any recommendations on which study books I should look at getting that would compliment using the ToolKit?
1) IR section is relatively new one and even the Official Guide doesn't include IR questions, although it has an access code to 125 IR questions online. The app doesn't have any IR questions as most of our partners are still figuring out what exactly the new section is. As you may know we are selling Manhattan GMAT books inside of the app and we are going to add their IR book as soon as it becomes available.
2) As I said early the new OG guide has an access code to 125 IR questions online. It should be enough to get an idea. As you may know IR questions are not included into calculation of the main score and for me they are just a modified AWA section that is far less important than the quant and verbal sections. Anyway, I would recommend to start with the new OG guide and then figure out whether you need more practice or it's better to focus on the main sections.
Hi, Has the app been tested on the iPod touch / the 'new' iPad? Also, are there any plans to develop it on other platforms (Android phones and tablets / Kindle)...? From the snapshots and the reviews, it's almost like I want to buy a Ipod touch 'just' for it (and replace my Classic someone stole at the library)!
Yes, it works with iPod touch and we added Retina graphic support for the new iPad in the last update.
I would recommend to watch videos (the first post) and maybe try our free app - GMAT Club before buying GMAT ToolKit. We are trying to develop Android version too but with no luck so far to find a good developer. Moreover, a variety of hardware (display sizes, etc) makes it challenging for us to maintain the same quality as for iOS devices. So, I don't think we are able to release Android version in next 6 months but we are working on it.
For those of you who have the MGMAT OG Companion book, please open the Store (GMAT ToolKit). You will see "update available" under the icon of the book. Tap the "update" button (the top-right corner) to update the book.
Jfk, please let me know whether it fixes the typo.
I can't wait to try out this app. I am actually going to buy an iPad very soon and the GMAT ToolKit will be my first app on it. Do you guys have stats about how many you sold total/ over time / by version? Any way to know whether people use it on 1/ iPhone 2/ipod Touch 3/ iPad 4/a combination of those?
Can you actually 'sync' the data (scores, history of tests results, etc...) between multiple devices?
We keep only general stats and what I know for sure that GMAT Toolkit is the best selling GMAT prep app over 2 years (it's true). People use it on different devices but recently we have started to move away from supporting old iOS versions. Currently the app requires iOS 4.2 or later and we going to keep 4.2 as the least supported iOS for awhile. (roughly 98% of all active iOS devices use >=4.x iOS and 79% - >=5.0 iOS).
Yes, you can transfer data between devices. Now, it requires some manual work but we are working on version 2.0 that will allow you to synchronize data seamlessly between devices.
Yes, GMAT ToolKit 1.6.14 is available for download.
Now you can work on particular questions in the OG Traker tool. For example, if you in the search field enter "1, 5, 12, 16, 22, 26", only those questions will be visible and you don't need to jump over questions you don't want to answer. It's particularly useful together with MGMAT books or any other books that have references to the OG guides. Thanks bgpower for the suggestion!
1) Do you still need to purchase the Manhattan GMAT e-books if your already have purchased them (through a course, for example)?
2) Under Practice, I chose to scan in more questions from the Club. In te end, it appears that around 500 more questions were loaded. Does that seems right? It did seem to scan up to 400-500 and then drop back down to around 200 a couple of times.
