Guys,

A quick question. I just started with my preparations for the Verbal part and bought MGMAT Foundations of GMAT Verbal. Is this enough or what other books do you recommend?
I'm aiming for a score of 600.

Thank you in advance.

This is a great place to start. I recommend also getting a Official GMAT Guide 13th edition. This contains questions that have been retired from the GMAT and will give you plenty of practice problems to do. Once you have spent a month or more studying, you will have a better idea of your strengths and weaknesses, and at that point, you can purchase one of the Manhattan books that focuses on strategies for specific question types. Also, you may find it useful to use an online tool to practice as well.

Also, don't write in the books so that you can attempt the questions a second or third time.

Best of luck!

That Foundations book will be great to understand the underlying concepts, but you will probably want a strategy guide or two - the Sentence Correction guide is a must (http://www.manhattangmat.com/storeitems ... 80&catid=6). You will want to run through some of the MGMAT practice exams (you should have access now if you bought from the MGMAT store) to see how you are performing in each question type. Take a practice exam now and one in a month to see how you are doing. Depending on your performance overall and by type, you may want to pick up the CR or RC strategy guides as well...
