test preparation material and tests:repeat syndrome [#permalink] New post 17 May 2004, 12:21
I am really confused by the availability of different test materials by different publications.

If I start solving the Official Guide (OG) questions/material, then the powerprep tests that i will take later would repeat some the questions from this material and the scores would not be fare.

If I do not solve OG material, what do I solve for practice? I heard Kaplan is too difficult..Barrons is vague/incorrect at times.

Iam really confused.
Please help me here!

You can probably do a few Kaplan's tests (don't take the scores too seriously becoz like you said, it's more likely to be lower than what you'll get on PP). Then do the PP tests.

No worries...do your Powerprep tests before going too far in the OG. If Kaplan freaks you out get the Princeton Review tests. There are 5 of them on the CD (well, one of them is online) that comes with the book, and they are much closer to the real GMAT in terms of difficulty. I have not tried Barron myself so I couldn't say if they're good.

Mr Hope, you are welcome to look through our reviews of books and materials. Also, if anybody wants to comment on a book they loved/hated, you can all do it here:

P.S. you are absolutely correct about saving PP; a ton of people say that PP is usually the most accurate tool in estimating your final score even though it is quite dated.
