Kaplan workbooks vs Kaplan premier [#permalink] New post 13 Oct 2009, 05:21
Folks,

I went and purchased both the Kaplan workbooks today. The Kaplan premier was out of stock so decide to go ahead with the workbooks.

My question here is will Kaplan premier add any value to my prep once i am done with my Kaplan workbooks(math & verbal)?? I am pretty familiar with the GMAT pattern but still a bit of help in SC and DS.

What are you two cents on the same?? Should i go ahead and invest in Kaplan premier?? Also would Kaplan advanced be of any good once i am done with the workbooks since i have heard that there is a lot of questions that are repeated amongst the Kaplan books. Is there anything inherently different amongst all the three??

Sorry for the long post.... Tried the search function but could not manage any conclusive info.... :oops:

I own both books. After going through the SC and CR sections of both books I can say that they are pretty similar. Question types and difficulty levels are equal, you just get a lot more practice with the WB than you would with the Premier.

For SC I was really impressed by MGMAT book. I would definitely pick that up over the Premier if you are looking to learn the basics.

Kaplan premier is kind of like a sampler (has all kinds of things but in small portions).
Workbooks go in more detail. Though I recommend to start there, I think you can skip it (unless you want it for the 6 tests).

I assume you have seen these threads:
