Questions on the differences between the Official Guides [#permalink] New post 07 Dec 2009, 22:19
Hi everyone,

I have some questions about the Official Guides.

- The integrated Official Guide seems to have more questions than the individual Quantitative and Verbal guides combined. Do the questions overlap, except the Official Guide has MORE? Or are they entirely different question sets?

- Which is the best edition, according to most people's tastes?

- Recommended "pace" of study. I don't want to consume the guides in a week.

Thanks.

Best edition, the latest one as it would have the latest questions and better explanations (OG 12)

Recommended pace of study: the pace that allows you to learn the most. Some people might need 100 questions in 3 months and some can do that in one day but one isn't necessarily better off if one isn't learning

question is to learn

Hello osbornecox,

Please see the OG 12 thread to see the comparison between OG 11 and 12.

The official verbal and math guides are only in 2nd edition print, thus many people will not have experience with them. I found them very useful.

Official Guide 12 threads (including some links to older guide threads):
