MGMAT books to strengthen verbal- especially SC and RC.

Any suggestions or recommendations are appreciated. Looking to break 700 and would be very happy with 730+

Hello Chad,

I'd definitely recommend the

MGMAT SC workbook and

Powerscore CR bible. I used the

Kaplan Premier (2009 version) and found the material not as difficult as some of the MGMAT material. The MGMAT Quant books are perfect for help with boosting your math score, especially since they come in different sections.

Firstly, based off of your practice tests, see which math content you're the weakest in. Get those books first.

In general usefulness though, I would rate them in this order:

1. Number Properties & Word Translations. The advanced section of these books have some good information.

***Also Advanced Quant book for strategies, tactics, and practice problems (but only get this if you're confident with the other math concepts). On the manhattangmat(.)com site you can find this book here: (storeitemshow.cfm?ItemID=380&catid=10)

2. Equations, Inequalities, and VICs. The advanced section of this book also has some good information.

3. Geometry (going through this book will take very little time).

4. Fractions, Decimals, and Percents (I didn't use this book, but if you're having problems with this content, you should get it).

Hope this helps!
