Sorry if this is the wrong place to post, but I thought some of you would like this information.

I was able to rent the set of 8 strategy guides from Campus Book Rentals for about $70 (including shipping).

The rental period is 130 days, so if that's enough time for you, then I think renting is the way to go. I rented in early February and took the GMAT on April 23. The guides were very helpful! (I focused more on the Quant guides and really only glanced at the Verbal guides...)

This link is for the set of 8, however, I think you can rent individual guides as well.

P.S. In case you're wondering: I am in no way affiliated with Manhattan GMAT Prep or Campus Book Rentals. =)

Thanks! I did not know these were available. This is a good option!
I think most people buy for 2 reasons though:

1. The total package of 8 MGMAT Guides is $120 on Amazon and most don't pay sales tax
2. With new books, you get access to the question banks and online tests (which I am guessing you don't with the rentals)

Then you can always sell your books back (130 or 151 days after).... it is also the American way to buy things upfront, even if you can't afford them ;)

I was able to access the online tests since the books were brand new when I got them. But yes, there's no guarantee that future rentals will be the same.

You can purchase the 8 set MGMAT from Amazon for only a little more ($112), after which they have a buyback program that will get you some money back if you choose to sell them.
