Matching latest version full set MGMAT with OG12 versus OG13 [#permalink] New post 28 Jul 2012, 08:29
Hi everyone,

I am going to buy the latest version of MGMAT full set, which comes 10 pieces as opposed to previous 8-piece version. I know that OG is a complementary to MGMAT set.

My question: I have OG12. If I get MGMAT latest edition, is there going to be a discrepancy and problem following the latest version of MGMAT set with older version of OG?

Also, if I have OG12, even if there will be no problem matching it with MGMAT set, do I really need to purchase the OG13 as well or is it going to be the same result if I just purchase the extra questions that are included in OG13 but not in OG12?

Thanks for your advice in advance!

You might want to check which strategy guide package you are purchasing - some include the OG, some do not (see the links at the bottom of this post). You can continue to use the OG 12 with the latest version of the MGMAT materials, but there will be a little work on your part. Only 17% of the questions are new, so chances are strong that most questions referenced in the strategy guides will still appear in your OG 12. The numbering may not be exactly the same, so you might be looking around a bit for the correct problem. You can follow this link to a blog posting that discusses the differences between OG12 and OG13, including a listing of problems that have made a significant shift in numbering - http://www.manhattangmat.com/blog/index ... ial-guide/.

That said, I just searched on Amazon and found the OG 13 available for ~$25 bucks. Is it worth $25 to deal with shifts in numbering and potential missed problems? That's for you to decide...
