How different are the books than the 4th edition?


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!

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.

Hey am in too...

Question though....are these soft copies or hard copies you talkin about?

And if latter, will they be shipped outside the US?


We're talking hard copies. And yes, we'll most definitely ship to you if you win and you live outside the US!

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.

There's definitely overlap--I don't think you need to rush out and replace all your 4th edition books. That said, there's definitely some must-have stuff like the Critical Reasoning book and the IR & Essay book. More info on this coming soon in the form of a blog post. I'll keep you all updated.

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.

We've included some new practice problems and we've removed some, too. Instead of adding in a ton of new practice problems we actually focused more on simplifying, rewriting and reorganizing sections so that the content builds better and our students have an easier time with the material.

chandroth129 wrote:
Also is the question banks that could be accessed with the guides totally new for the 5th ed.

The question banks will be exactly the same.

chandroth129 wrote:
Finally,does MGMAT provides any discount for those who currently own the complete set of 4th ed or some sort of an upgrade?

We don't provide a discount or upgrade offer.
