Is Nova GMAT Math Bible any good. It has a lot of topics covered, but is it worth the time???

Few members use the Nova materials. Since there is a lack of consensus, it's probably best to use caution here. Choose products that are widely supported by the community and have a strong reputation.

I have a copy of the book - it is very extensive (and I think quite a bit more than you need it to be). See my review here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/188905 ... 1889057509

I would not jump into it until you have covered either MGMAT Guides or Veritas Guides, but it is not a mistake to either

I was working on the geometry portion and it covers a lot of problems. However 500 odd pages takes time and i'm getting bored. Probability section can come in handy..

I used Nova's GRE Math Bible for GRE preparation and it is an awesome book. Infact it is "the most" recommended book for GRE Maths. The content of GRE Math Bible is similar to that of GMAT Bible except for the Data sufficiency section.

Geometry section is covered very well in this book.

However if you need to get just one material for for GMAT Maths,I think the MGMAT books are a better option.

Your review isn't up there anymore. What were your thoughts about the book, and how do you think it stacks up to the Gmat Club Math book?

Its a good one for beginners. Problems will be a bit easy for us to understand the concepts. If you are scoring close to 40s in quant then probably you won't be in need of it.
