look manhattan set of 8 books hardly have any 'problems' in them. They are more for concept building IMO. So the question really is what do you want to do.. build theory or just practice more problems!

I feel that, verbal concept will add to my confusion and only practice can get me better.

Quant: I am weak in few concepts Number Properties and CI, I tend to make some silly mistakes or consume excessive time.

Please do correct or suggest me if I am wrong in approach or thinking......

OG is not enough ... u need to do a lot of hard work (assuming that you have just started and only read the OG)

Folks in this forum have done a pretty good job in listing out the books.

Ya, just doing practice problems is not going to build your foundations. If you're confused, it is most likely due to the fact that you don't understand the underlying principals that go into each question type and question area. Going through the guides should help you build your foundations. Problem is, Manhattan guides use the OG as their question bank (Plus each chapter have questions to reinforce your concepts, although they are not set up like multiple choice questions). So my advice is to purchase the brand new Manhattan GMAT guides along with the OG13 for more review and practice problems.

Studying the OG book as the only study material is a big mistake, and your score will suffer. You will not learn the underlying concepts that you need to know before you chug away at practice problems.

you know we can guess our way through (or rely on our ears) for verbal only for so long. the options in verbal get so tricky that unless you know the fundamentals its difficult ot choose one option over the other. Its best to build foundation. Will also help you to reduce your time per question.

Yes, I know verbal needs brushing up of some concepts I did that before starting OG with help of some notes provided by friends.

Thanks for all suggestion friends, I am surely gonna acquire MGMAT Series and brush through the concepts on which I feel I am weak.

And then target OG 13 (additional Probs), and OG Verbal & Quant. (If any alternate better option to consider please suggest)

I feel adding more to read or to practice will spoil my way since i need to work more on my weaknesses than anything else.

If any suggestions or add ons please do it, it will be a great help !!!

Manhattan books are great to improve on fundamentals and get the CR bible. Better than mgmat..
U can get the verbal and quant books by GMAC to get more problems to solve
