Hi Gent's,

I recently purchased Manhattan GMAT books 5 Edition. Since I am pressed
for time,I was wondering if there is any plan to start with these books?

What are the most important books of them?

I did't take any prep test of the gmat until now but I read more about the test how it will be?

Looking for the Experts advise & Thanks alot for any help in advanced....

khalid,

I think it depends a lot on your strengths and weaknesses. If you have a strong quant background then maybe you can plow through the math a little quicker.

For me, personally, I found Manhatten to have really great math instruction. But I identified quant as a bit of a weak spot. If you already quite good at it maybe you'll find it a bit dull.

Overall, I dont think you can discount the value of any of the books because they teach valuable approaches to taking the test. If your short on time it's all about pin pointing your weaknesses and bringing them up to speed.

Yes, it's best to take a diagnostic test first and then pinpoint what areas are your weakness. There are 5 sections of the exam + 1 section for IR. Usually you'll find yourself weakest in a few sections, spend your initial time focusing on strengthening these areas. Within each of these sections, you'll find there are even subsections within these sections and you can then focus more of your time on specific subcategories.

If you don't want to take a diagnostic test, you can also try a few questions and learn about the various question types by trying out the Practice Pill Platform. Here is a sample SC question you can try.
