You probably know that these are the veritas course books so they are available only on the secondary market and in a very small quantity. For someone to know that the books have changed and to what degree, they would have had to take a Veritas course twice :roll:

thanks bb but dont they have editions? i remember looking at the princeton review course manuals and they are on the 9th edition right now so if i can find out what edition is being used right now in veritas courses, i could ask the guy what edition he has.

Hi jimjohn,

I work for Veritas Prep, and I can tell you that while our books are updated multiple times per year, in early 2009 they were completely revamped, such that someone with pre-2009 books wouldn't even recognize our current books.

Of course, I'd prefer that you buy them from us :-), but you can ask anyone selling Veritas Prep books about the covers on the books... If they're white, then they're the pre-2009 books, and you shouldn't bother buying them. If they have blue covers, then they're the newer books. They may not be the very latest edition (we update them all the time), but they'll be up-to-date with our latest techniques for GMAT prep.
