Hi,

I wanted to know if anyone had comments/opinions of the usefulness of the individual OG Verbal and Quant guides?

Are they any good...if so for what?

Are the questions in them, the same as those in the OG official guide?

Thank you.

-Saumil.

Hi fellas,

I finally finished the OG 11 cover to cover the last weekend, and just this afternoon rushed down to the bookshop to pick up OG Quant (my weak area).

Guess what, first 60 or so pages of the OG Quant are IDENTITICAL to the OG 11, word for word. So you really are only buying the OG Quant for additional sample questions, and the corresponding answers.

And after having done the first 75 problem solving quetions this afternoon, i find that it really is much easier than many of the questions on the OG11. But, comparing with my Kaplan (which is even easier than the OG Quant), I would consider the OG Quant to be a better tool.

can't really say that the OG quant is a waste of  especially if u have the OG 11. But I think you probably could get better quizzes elsewhere. Only thing about the OG series is that you are pretty sure you are learning stuff that is really needed in the actual test.

sorry to disagree with many of the guys out here, but I don't think Kaplan's material is really useful, not unless you are really working from the ground up. But the full length test does give you a good run though!

Cheers,
Den

The review sections in the verbal and quant are consolidated in the OG 11. The OG 11 also has a "diagnostic" set of questions to help you pinpoint where you need to focus.

When you buy the verbal and quant books individually, the only thing you get above the OG 11 are a different set of questions. I would recommend buying the OG 11 first; if you find you want more questions halfway through, buy the others and they will arrive in time for when you finish the OG 11.

Outside of the diagnostic test (which increases in difficulty), I could not find anything in the OG/verbal/quant books that said the questions were segregated by difficulty, but I could be wrong....nor did I find them increasing in difficulty as they increased sequentially, but that is just my opinion. I tried working backwards just to be sure after I hit 100 or so.

Also, I highly recommend you download the free GMATprep software with the two computer tests.

Good luck.
