Hey Silver,

1. http://www.flipkart.com/books/193570716 ... p2x3fnylod

You can buy Mgmat's foundations - Verbal from flipkart.com if you are based somewhere in India . Check if it ships to middle east.

2. Else Use Gmat Club's Ultimate grammar ( search the forum ). It is available as an PDF for just 10 $. I used it for brushing up my basics and then followed it up with Mgmat SC Guide ( The preferred combination ). Download the pdf instantly upon payment and take a printout of the book ( around 240 pages , so 120 pages if printed both sides and that shouldn't be much )

3. Look up to " Doing Grammar " on Amazon. Its a awesome grammar book too around 250 pages.

If you have time use " do grammar "
If you planning to give gmat in 2-3 months, lookup to mgmat verbal foundations of gmat grammar book
If not, the best combination IMHO is GMAT Club's Ultimate Grammar Book + Mgmat SC Guide. ( i loved this along with mgmat SC guide and also easily available ;) )

Hey,

Instead of just studying from a generic English grammar book, it might make sense to use a book that is tailored for the types of verbal problems you'll see on the GMAT specifically. I recommend that you check out Manhattan GMAT's new Foundations of GMAT Verbal Strategy Guide. It will help you strengthen your understanding of basic principles such as grammar, logic, and reading, while building core verbal skills for the GMAT. Check it out on our website (http://www.manhattangmat.com/storeitems ... 9&catid=10) or on Amazon for reader reviews (http://www.amazon.com/Foundations-GMAT- ... 1935707167).

Best,

Hey,

Try checking this Middle East shipping list to see if Amazon can ship to you: http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/ ... 4&#country

If so, you'd be able to pick up a copy of any of Manhattan GMAT's books. Other online booksellers might also ship to your country. If you have an e-reader, another option is e-books. We offer e-book versions of our books, including Foundations of Verbal, on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and iTunes.

Best of luck,
