Need advice on how to prepare. [#permalink] New post 19 Jun 2013, 02:38
Hello Everyone..

After months of procrastination I finally decided to prepare for GMAT. :) I bought OG 13th edition and borrowed the Manhattan 8 strategy guides. My work timings won't allow me to register for a training course. So I decided for self study. Can you please advise me on where to start. I am really confused!! everything seems so important in the all the GMAT material I see.

By the way I found the GMAT club math book to be very informative.

Thanks in advance..


Regards
Sunil

Sunil -

If you're comfortable enough - just start from the beginning. Pick up book 1 and go from there. I'd probably go through all of the books first and then come back and do the advanced stuff, that's what I did. But everyone is different. If you go through the book and feel ready for the tough stuff as soon as you're finished, go for it. I let the non-advanced stuff stew for a little before tackling the tougher sections, though.

Go through the books and do all of the practice work and then start working on the official guide. Both of these books should be sufficient for a great score, but I don't think there's any special order that you need to review these books in, I'd probably just go in numerical order.

Good luck!
