Official Guide Quant Review 1st Ed vs 2nd Ed [#permalink] New post 07 Apr 2011, 07:53
Can anyone help me understand if the 2nd edition is significantly different or improved from 1st edition?

I am getting the Manhattan quant books from a friend and they also have the 1st Edition OG GMAT quant book. I am wondering if it is would meet my needs or if I should just go ahead and order the 2nd edition.

Thoughts?

Thanks.

The guys at Manhattan GMAT have made a useful thorough comparison between the two editions here.

The Problem Solving part is here.

The second edition version for OG Quant and OG Verbal are better in the sense that they contain a larger portion of difficult questions. But some feel that the books still suffer from too many low-difficulty questions. I suppose, then, that this problem is even more pronounced in the previous edition.

While the first edition is probably cheaper, I would advise you to purchase the newest version - even if the difference in quality between the two is not that noticeable.
