I think I will be very weak on quant, but obviously need to review everything. What book should I start with first? Does it make sense to jump into the OG 13 first and work my way down from there?

Also, any book or set of books that I am missing?

Thanks guys!

Obviously you need to find something that works for you, but here is what I would do.

First take a GMAT Prep practice test. They are the most accurate and will give you a good idea about strengths and weaknesses and will serve as a benchmark. From the test you see where you need to dedicate the bulk of your studies.

Maybe look through the Kaplan Premier book to get a general idea about what is on the test. From my understanding the Kaplan book teaches just the basics of all the sections of the test.

As you become more advanced I would start by going through the MGMAT books to dive deep into the concepts. As you learn the material-for example, complete the MGMAT critical reasoning guide test yourself using the OG CR questions.

By the time you use these resources you will have a much better idea about what to do next. Everyone is different so ultimately you have to learn what study methods work best for you.

Good luck.

I have all of the books you do and this was my plan:

I started off with the MGMAT Quant books, One by one attempting the problem sets that accompany them. I did not touch the OG 12/13 and gave it a pass for later. After i finished each MGMAT book i did all the problems given in the relevant section of the Kaplan Premier book (which i bought only for verbal and for the CAT's). After i finished all the quant books by MGMAT i started doing timed OG13 sets. I did sets of 30 PS problems at a time (all timed) and moved on to DS after finishing the PS set (and reviewing even the correct answers). In between my OG i used to mix up a few Kaplan 800 Problems just for variety, all the while going over relevant questions on this forum and from the materials posted by Bunnuel and others (GMAT PREP AND MGMAT SECTIONS, Tough problems etc).

This is where i stand now, Must have attempted around 2000 quant questions by now (in two months) from various sources (those GMAT specific that are mentioned, plus from online sources, high school books, and other test prep books (non gmat) ) . I needed to practice a loooooot because i had not taken a quant class in almost a decade, so if you are from a quant background then you need not practice as much as i am doing.
