Manhattan Gmat Online OG (Official Guide) Archer [#permalink]  07 Jul 2012, 00:18
I took Online OG (Official Guide) Archer. They do not apprise cleary that you can not reach all part of the each problem in description. Only few words can be seen on every problem and after purchasing(!) which can not be refundable(!) there is an explanation that you can not see the whole question because of copyright issues. How would it be useful and cost 14$. I bought a product that I can not use!. I know OG is more expensive book but I thought that it is 14$ because it is an online source. They should write "why you can not see whole problem" note before purchasing otherwise this debases credibility of Manhattan Gmat. I think Manhattan Gmat sources are so good products to need such fakeries.

I'm sorry that you didn't get what you expected from the OG Archer, but I will say that there is HUGE value in the Archer. I refer to it consistently with classes and students as one of the best tools to assess your progress, tackle your weaknesses and improve your GMAT scoring potential.

Since the GMAT is an adaptive test, you really are only as good as your weakest areas. Let's say you are absolutely amazing at Geometry and can answer every Geometry problem the GMAC has ever produced, but you can't handle Word Problems (i.e. Rates) to save your life. You'll probably never see the really hard Geometry problems because your performance on Word Problems will tell the GMAT that you aren't capable of handling those really hard problems. You have to work "bottoms-up".

In order to attack your weaknesses, you need to know them. That's exactly what the data that the OG Archer will give you along with some nice bonus info like timing, payback (% correct when you go over the prescribed time) and additional explanations (when the OG just isn't enough).

If you take advantage of the data the Archer provides to guide your study, it's safe to assume you will safe some time, so at $14 it doesn't take long to pay that back...

What do you mean by a solution book? The Official Guides all come with explanations in the book. We (Manhattan GMAT) have a separate solution book with our explanations for Quant Questions (http://www.manhattangmat.com/storeitems ... 4&catid=10), but we don't have a separate solution book with explanations for Verbal Questions...yet. That said, the explanations from the GMAT for Verbal questions is pretty good and I would definitely recommend reviewing the GMAT explanations.

A bit more deeply analysis would have been far more useful. Don't you agree to that sir? _________________ Regards, S Consider +1 KUDOS if you find this post useful Manhattan GMAT Instructor Joined: 30 Apr 2012 Posts: 655 Followers: 259 Kudos [?]: 439 [0], given: 5 Re: Manhattan Gmat Online OG (Official Guide) Archer [#permalink] 23 Jul 2013, 10:53 Expert's post Yes, I completely agree I know we are working on a "Companion" guide to the Verbal OG questions, but I'm not sure how soon it will be released. In the meantime, my suggestion to people is to do forum/google searching on the OG questions that have an inadequate explanations. You can find decent explanations to most questions online (many right here on GMATClub). Best of luck.

I don't have details about the availability of an online version, but I would assume it would be released around the same time.
