I was wondering if anybody can recommend a good answer explanation guide to the OG. I'm currently debating between the GMAT Fix Companion to the OG by Patrick Siewe and Jeff Sackman's Guide to the OG.

Any feedback and/or suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Ive heard good stuff about hackman's math sets, not sure about the companion guide. But I would rather spend money on other kinds of prep materials than a companion guide.

What is the value of those books? (What am I missing?)

http://www.officialguidegmat.com/ --- .. IT BASICALLY GIVES THE SOLUTIONS TO ALL THE QUESTIONS IN MUCH DETAIL THAN THE OG SOLUTIONS.

I heard good things about Siewe's book, but that was for OG 11. Not sure if his new one has been completely updated for OG 12?

Guys, thanks for your replies.

bb: Like gmanjesh mentioned, they basically provide answer explanations to questions in the OGs in much greater detail than those that are there in the OGs.

gmanjesh: Thanks for providing the link. The feedback in the thread is quite helpful.

bonedry: Yes, that is correct. Siewe's book hasn't yet been updated to cover OG 12 but then again, it's for $29.99, compared to GMAT Hacks'$69.99.
