I am really struggling with the problem solving questions in the Gmat quant section. Could you please recommend some good books that will help me focus specifically on this issue. I plan on gettting the Manhattan guides, but what other books are out there that really focus on the problem solving questions in the quant section. Thank you in advance.

Hi Bigpete757,

Have you seen the book review thread?
top-gmat-prep-books-guides-reviews-comments-77703.html

What part of problem solving is getting the best of you? Word Translations? Work/Rate problems?

Also: best-gmat-math-prep-books-reviews-recommendations-77291.html

And: top-20-best-gmat-books-on-gmat-club-76582.html

You will want to take a look at the MGMAT Number properties, Kaplan Math Workbook, OG 12 if you have not, and PR 1012

Thanks for the replies. I still have to go through OG 11 and 12 and will use the manhatten and kaplan math book and maybe another one or two. Hopefully I will start getting better as I progress through more questions. Its just that math as always been a weak area for me. I caught onto the DS section pretty quickly, but I just seem to have a hard time setting up the word problems so you can solve them.

What I should have asked in this post, was basically, is there any hidden gems (books) that have really helped people succeed in the word problem section. Most likely they would have been mentioned on here already, but you never know.

The only other 2 items that have not been mentioned are electronic:
1. GMAT Club tests - these are only hard gmat tests - 2 are free to everyone and the rest are free if you are an active member of gmat club.
2. Total GMAT Math PDF by gmat hacks - I have not used it but we have heard positive reviews of it. The only downside is that it is $50. _________________ Founder of GMAT Club US News 2008 - 2017 Rankings progression - New! Just starting out with GMAT? Start here... Need GMAT Book Recommendations?

I concur with BB.

I've met Jeff Sackmann (author of Total GMAT). He's very reputable and can vouch for his products.
