BOOKMARKED
Hello everybody,

I just started studying for GMAT last month. My GMAT goal is to get 700+. I bought the Official Guide 12 Edition and the Princeton Review Cracking the GMAT 2010 edition. Princeton Review is a good book for reviewing the fundamentals, but the questions in the book seem to be too easy compare to the questions in the OG. Also, the book focus on process of elimination rather than teaching the "actual materials". So, I ordered the Manhattan 8-book guides because of other people's recommendation. English is not my native language, so the Verbal section is my weakness. Thus, when I get the Manhattan Guides, I plan to start studying CR, SC, and RC (in that order). Then, I will begin studying the math parts. Are those books sufficient in terms of helping me to reach my target score? Also, I plan to take the GMAT next year, so I don't mind spending extra time studying. Thanks in advance. :)

Welcome to the gmatclub Samwong!

Yes, MGMAT along with gmatclub tests would be enough for the GMAT. If you think you need more practice go for Veritas guides.

Great books! Definitely study hard using those. I recommend an error log too to catch and learn from your mistakes.

hello everyone,

as i read the blogs it appears that most ppl are pretty good test takers. For that is far from the truth. i am a good student with 3.79 GPA. I was student commencements speaker but i am AWFUL with test takers. Same in high-school. 3.89 GPA with a 960 SAT. I took a practice GMAT and got a 410. Now, i had 0 clue what i was doing and i took it at night for fun. But now i am very serious about grad school and scoring north of 650 would be my dream. i am willing to do what it takes to get there. is this possible. i am planning to take GMATs on August 2nd. So i have a little over 4 months to prep.

Master GMAT which appears to have been purchased by the Economist is an awesome prep tool. I used it along with a class and found it to be so much better than the much higher priced course. Highly recommend on its own or in conjunction with whatever else you are doing.
