Prepping with "For Dummies"? [#permalink] New post 13 Dec 2009, 19:18
I am pretty bad at math so I was going to go to the library and get Algebra I/II for Dummies, Probability for Dummies, and probably a couple others (maybe Math Word Problems/Geometry). And for the verbal side I was going to get English Grammar for Dummies. Would this be a good way to prep or would the Kaplan/Princeton Review/ Manhattan GMAT routine be better? I studied and took the LSAT and the critical reasoning and reading comprehension areas of the GMAT seem rather easy to me, so I'm just looking to get a solid review of math and English grammar going.

I heard Probability for Dummies is good
Rest I am not sure. It might just be efficient to go through the prep course material since they would be covering more relevant material.

Grammar for Dummies is a mistake. Though most of English Grammar is fair game on the GMAT, there are only a handful of grammar issues that are actually tested with any frequency. Furthermore, there are a number of common warning signs that certain types of grammar might be at issue; Grammar for Dummies won't help you there.

Check out the book thread for better recommendations; no surprise, a lot of Kaplan materials are on the recommended list, and our workbooks and guides can really help you out!

There seems to be a lot of books to choose from. What are a group of books that would be sufficient enough to achieve a high score? Is there any study guide that lays out which books to read and do practice with? I found the recommended books link but that just seems to be a big collect of all kinds of books to use.
