I Apologize in Advance...But I Have to Ask [#permalink] New post 24 Jul 2011, 16:21
Are the individual GMAC OGs for quant and verbal worth purchasing seperately? I already own the OG 12, but was curious if the individiual quant and verbal books are worth buying on their own.

I generally find that the other services are great for learning the materials, but nobody does a truly excellent job of writing questions that most closely mimic the OG.

Thanks - I know this has been covered.

This depends on how you score in the medium to advanced problems/practice tests. If you score fine, then you might not need the additional content.

My personal recommendation: They are the next best material after OG12 out there.

If you are VERY strong in Quant or Verbal, you might skip this book. Also it depends on how much time you have for preparation. If you do it the right way, i.e., read "every" explanation till you understand it fully, then it will take a while to finish just the OG12. But if you have sufficient time and have been struggling with OG12 to attain the accuracy you desire, please go for these or one of these books. Also, don't forget most people, including me, have seen repeating OG itself is important.

I have heard that Quant book has easier questions compared to the real GMAT. But I can't confirm as I don't possess the book.

Hope this helps.

Verbal Review is worth purchasing, but I wouldn't say the same about the Quant Review. IMO, problems in the Quant review are easy.

I agree with the above person
The verbal review was very useful to me and had some tricky questions.
The quant review had very easy problems and is very useless.
