Ok, so i totally need help. I have bought the Kaplan, Offical Guide, Priceton review books for the gmat. Here's my dilemma- how do i start studying???? i mean do i just pick up a book and go through it, I talked to a co-worker who took the kaplan course, and she said that everything they teach is right in the book. I took a pracitice score and got in the 500's :(.. anyone willing to help give me some guidance ?

thanks,

I had same dilemma exactly 1 week about about how to start it. But now I can say that at least I have started. I started reading SC theory from PR verbal workout book and then moved on to solving OG questions. For RC you have to chose your own set of rules about how you are going to attack the passages from OG, so start doing them and see which method suits you best. For CR "Powerprep Logical Reasoning Bible" is excellent book. Finish this book first and then move onto OG, but do remember that this book itself is over 500 pages, so do not try to finish it in within a week. You need to understand the concepts in this book so take good time may be atleast 15 days or so. But I will say before starting RC do finish up first four chapters of "Powerprep Logical Reasoning Bible".

For DS treat the question and first statement together as one part, and see you help the question or not. If not then start the question afresh but this this time only using second statement and dropping any conclusions from earlier solution, if you can solve it. Even by doing this if there is no solution, then take question afresh alongwith both statement 1 and 2 and see if question can be solved or not.
