Hi, I am new to this club and GMAT too.
I have completed my Engineering in 2007 in India and I was working in a software company for the past 4 years.
Now I am a home maker and I am planning to take GMAT exam after one year.
I was good at maths when I was in college but now I am completely out of touch. So please recommend best and affordable books for self preparation for cracking GMAT to get into any state colleges in NJ.
Thanks in advance.

Hi... welcome to the world of GMAT.

quants you should refer Manhattan books as they are the best guides for covering basics and have some gr8 questions also along with that you should do OG12.

verbal:
SC: Manhattan is bible devote maximum time on this book and do as many questions as you can from various sources like 1000 sc.
CR: I would suggest power score 800 for basics and Manhattan for further practice.
RC: Manhattan again

be active on GMAT club it will keep you aware about all the current discussions, new questions, methods etc. also please go through BB( Founder of GMAT club) tread about from where to start on gmat, books, guides, test preps etc.

Happy studying!!

Hi

Starting a preparation from the bottom always helps....But as you said you were good in quant...So go through MGMAT quant directly....They have 5 quant books and 3 verbal books...

Later if you face difficulty understanding the material...You always have an option to buy foundation books.....

Hi,
If you are planning to write the GMAT after 1 year, I believe it's too early to start your preparation.

3 months is the recommended time. People who extend their prep phase more than three months tend to burn out and perform sub-optimally. However, you can start building your foundation in maths.

There's a book called "Quantum CAT." The book has a lot of solved problems and the theory coverage is also pretty good. It's very good for self study. Unfortunately, it's available only in India. You will have to get someone from India to ship it to you. Also, it costs only Rs. 550. Compared to other GMAT prep books, this book is dirt cheap.

Once you get that book, spend around 1 hr every day learning concepts, making notes and solving problems. Although you're spending only 1hr a day, if you do it consistently, these small increments will add up and you'll see a remarkable improvement in the long run.

Plus, studying only 1 hr per day will prevent you from burning out.

Good luck...
