Can someone tell how good these books are and if they are worth buying for reviewing the material?

Thanks..........

The SC book is supposed to be especially good. That's the one I see people recommending on the forums all the time.

All the MGMAT books are excellent... especially the "Word Translations" and "Sentence Corrections". Use them in conjunction with the OG.

I also highly recommend the SC book. I've purchased many books in the past for the GMAT, including ones from Princeton Review, Veritas, Kaplan and MGMAT. Here is how I would rank the books in regards to SC strategies:

1) MGMAT - The best. A MUST read.
2) Princeton Review - A good primer, although not as comprehensive as MGATM.
3) Kaplan - slightly below Princeton Review
4) Veritas - The WORST. Only available to Veritas students, but a COMPLETE waste of time. This book has a horrendous verbal strategy guide that is will ultimately LOWER your score.

Case in point: After reading the MGMAT books, I regularly get 80 - 90% of the SC questions right (after only 2 weeks of studying) and spend less than a minute on each question, VS. before when I was in the 50 - 60% range and spent 2 minutes on each question.

Good luck!

Granted I have a natural penchant for verbal anyhow, but the Veritas stuff worked for me. Moved from 86-91 percentile to consistent 94-99
