Hi,

I am planning to buy one of the Manhattan GMAT Quant Books but not sure which one is THE BEST.
The main reason for buying the book is to get access to 6 online Manhattan GMAT Practice tests so there is no particular section of Math I am looking for. If I have to buy just one of the 5 Quant books which one should I buy.
Please suggest.
Thank you in advance.

If there is no specific maths area you are looking for you could get the foundations of GMAT maths.

http://www.amazon.com/Foundations-GMAT- ... 0984178007

It's not part of the 8 guide series but it acts as a general refresher guide for each of the 5 quant sections in the series.

You can access resources online but im not 100% sure whether you get access to the 6 cats. You should double check before buying. The book was a good warm up!

Purchasing the most recent edition of any of the MGMAT guides will provide online access to the CAT's.

The best book will cover the topic in which you're weakest, of course! But from what I've seen, the Number Properties guide is the most popular of the five.

I can't speak about which one is the best because I only used the Number Properties guide but it was definitely worth it. A great tool/refresher.

How in depth does the foundations book go into? Is the foundations book sort of like an "entry-level" book before diving into the specific sections?

Most of the GMAT-takers consider Manhattan SC book indispensible for verbal preparation.

So, if you are looking only for the online access to CAT, you may want to get that one.

Hi,

What I would suggest doing is to take the first of your 6 CATs now (you can do so for free) and use our analytical tools to figure out where your weakest areas in math are. Then you can buy the book that covers your weakest area.

You can find the test here: http://www.manhattangmat.com/free-gmat.cfm

Let me know if you need any help with the analysis of your test!

Best,
Caitlin Clay
