In for a free set. I’m actually curious about the updated CR book since the general feedback on the CR book is not that great compared to the other books in the set.

The 5th edition books are much more streamlined, content-wise. We've included a couple brand new books, the GMAT Roadmap and the Integrated Reasoning & Essay book(to address the upcoming Next Generation GMAT).

The Critical Reasoning book changed a great deal. We developed a new overall process, we grouped the questions into three major families based on certain characteristics, and we developed some new question categories and dropped others. We’re really excited about our new Critical Reasoning strategies.

We made three major changes to our quant books. We focus less on the number of practice problems in the guide and focus more on the quality of those problems, we simplify the discussion of each topic, and we separate the discussion of content from discussion of specific strategies.

We'll have a blog post up in the next day or two that goes over all the changes so stay tuned!

It would be great to get a copy of the 5th Ed!
Currently I own the complete set of strategy guides of 4th ed and would like to know the overlap of 5th ed with 4th ed so that I could decide if I need to purchase again the complete set of 5th ed.
As mentioned,CR guide has a new strategy so it has less overlap with 4th ed.I believe there is much overlap in strategy used in 5th ed with 4th ed SC, RC and quant books.
Is the practice problems in 5th ed totally new or are there much overlap in the practice problems in the 5 the ed with 4th ed.
Also is the question banks that could be accessed with the guides totally new for the 5th ed.
Finally,does MGMAT provides any discount for those who currently own the complete set of 4th ed or some sort of an upgrade?

I have gone through all of the Quant and so far 5th edition is very heavily overlapping with 4th (95%). Verbal seems to have been revised significantly more but no clear number yet.

Edit: i have to add the CR book (book #6 seems to have been substantially revised, updated and rewritten and now contains a chapter on bold face CR questions.
