Hi,
I graduated May '03 with a double major in Accounting and Finance from a large state school in the south. I've been working since then and thought now would be a good time to take the GMAT.

I just received the Kaplan 2006 Premier Edition. I plan to work the entire thing before moving on. Any suggestions on how to best utilize this resource? Or, what resource to move to next?

Any help/advice is much appreciated and I look forward to participating in this site.

Thanks,
Chapman

GMATPrep official tests and the Official Guide (http://www.mba.com) are musts. I would also strongly suggest Princeton Review. Much better for verbal than any of the other prep guides, and in general the strategies are solid.

If you can get the old powerprep tests (from mba.com) it might also prove useful.

My weakest area is Problem Solving because I'm horrible at algebra. What do you guys think about the Kaplan 800 Math workbook?

Welcome aboard Chapman! Looking forward to you taking part in our discussions...

Kaplan 800 is a combined Math/Verbal workbook (at least it was in 2005) with limited, but insightful practice sets. My math sucks too, but I happened to raise it a few points by going through the OG (Official Guide) 11th edition and the MGMAT problem of the week archives. If you are aiming for a 45+, I might also recommend Project GMAT by Veritas as it is worth it`s weight in gold.

See you in the forum,
