I've just started studying for the GMAT and purchased the Official Guide 13th edition, as well as the Manhattan GMAT Strategy Guides. I was wondering what everyone thought of using Khan Academy GMAT prep as well? Has anyone ever used the videos and did they find them helpful at all? It seems like the questions he uses are from the 5th edition of the OG which I'm assuming is from a while ago. Would this matter?

Thanks everyone for all of your time and thoughts.

I used the Khan Academy quite a bit to help brush up on math basics I had forgotten early in my GMAT prep. The normal videos were quite helpful where he just covers topics. I thought his GMAT videos weren't very helpful though. He just went over random questions and kind of solved them quickly. Eventually I went on to using videos from Knewton and found those much better.

Found this very interesting info on Khan academy: Looks like they got $2 mill funding from Google. Can someone confirm this?

Thanks everyone. I love using Khan Academy, but wasn't sure about the GMAT section. It's definitely a great resource to use. I've mostly been using it for brushing up on the basics, i.e., arithmetic, algebra, etc. Glad to hear that people have actually used it with some success.

I prefer GMAT Quantum since his explanations are thorough and are better than the OG. I think MGMAT is pretty solid too. The more ways you can approach a problem, the better.

Have never heard of GMAT Quantum. What is it? And also, are you recommending MGMAT for Quant also, or only for verbal?

Hey,

GMAT Quantum is this site: http://www.gmatquantum.com/

He provides free explanations to all OG problems. He has a premium portion of the site, but I never used it.

I recommend MGMAT for Quant, but quite honestly, it's not fully comprehensive even though it's the best on the market. I supplement A LOT of what I learn with googling/etc. For instance, I think it's Geometry book is painfully simplistic. Number Properties is the best out of the whole thing.

For Verbal, I'm actually naturally good in Verbal (RC > CR > SC). MGMAT is the best, but I feel like I need a different approach for SC. It does give a great overview of grammar topics to be tested, but you have to review the OG SC problems consistently since GMAT grammar is hard to duplicate.

LOL, I swear the SC problems during my GMAT exam were not real English. That was always my weakest link in the GMAT Prep
