How do you feel that Sackmann's challenge set compares to GMAT Club Math tests. I have his entire challenge set, and I'm considering buying the Gmat Club tests. Any insights into how the two sets compare for someone in the 43/44 Q range.

Imo you should really focus on the basics in your stage of preperation. At those quant score levels you usually still have some deficits in the basics and by strengthening those you can boost your score up to 47-48. Sackman's sets helped me do that, I think they're excellent for that.

So do you think Sachmann Challenge Sets--> Gmat Club Math Tests in that order should suffice?

GMATClub tests are more difficult than Sackmann's material. So save the GMATClub tests for last.

I second bmillan01.
The club tests and Bunnel's signatures are the hardest good quality test material so it's better to do them when one is at his or her peak.
Also, If you are scoring around 43, then it's time to identify the concepts you have problem in. You must revisit theory books( such as mgmat) to understand those concepts better and thereafter do a lot of problems of all level( you may use the gmatclub latest level wise distribution), Rinse and repeat for other topics.
After doing so, i am sure your score will minimum jump to 47/48 and that would be the right time to dig into Jeff's challenge sets and followed by gmatclub tests. :) I've mentioned that in my signatures below.
Regards

I am finding about 1 error in every 30 questions in the Sackmann sets. Not entirely impressed with them. I also get the feeling that a lot of these questions are sourced from gmat practice exams etc., with numbers changed slightly etc.
