Kurt,

Don't delay buying MGMAT - go and get the series. They're good for getting you ground up.

don't know about Veritas book, but you won't miss anything if you skip MGMAT RC/CR book... I didn't even bother reading it... their strategies in those sections are not that great.

kurt, this book is the proverbial s**t when it comes to algebra:

http://www.amazon.com/Practical-Algebra ... 0471530123

if the MGMAT books are worth their weight in gold, then this is worth its weight in platinum - it really is that good. if you don't believe me, then read the reviews on amazon, they are testament to how good it is. I don't think i've ever seen a book with as much unanimous praise as this one.

Yea that is true, but i like to think of it this way - if you pratice running a marathon, doing a half marathon will be a piece of cake :-D. I would say the first 6 chapters are very useful (there are about 10 total). It does spend quite a bit of time on bad ass quadratics, but this makes the GMAT stuff look like childs play.

You say, correctly, that you don't want to study algebra for the sake of algebra, but you want to stay focused on the GMAT. You have hit on one of the key problems with self-study. Because most people do not have extensive experience with the GMAT, they study material widely out of the boundaries of the test, or material that is so very restricted, it misses the more "foundational" types of questions on the GMAT.
GMAX Online was specifically designed to teach the material within the entire scope of the GMAT, not leaving anything out, and not broadening it beyond the test. The methods used begin each topic from the start, so the student truly learns the foundations of the material and can do the hardest questions on the test - the ones that demand complete understanding of the subject and not just some tricks or formulas. The GMAT course is long: many students study with it for more than 80 hours. And there is extensive homework that should be completed. But because of the unique style and delivery methods (check out a few demo lessons on this website under "test prep reviews" for GMAX Online on the home page - you'll find links to the demos about half-way down the review) students do very well. There are posts in this forum, and in others, of students getting well over 700 just with GMAX.
Since all your grades are visible to the universities when you apply, it is very important that you take this test seriously and do not show a poor grade - even if it is your first grade. Some universities assume that you know they will see all your grades and that they will receive and read your GMAT essays. So study properly, and do not go for the test until you know that you will do well.
The best of luck.
