Did you ever wonder which GMAT Books are most popular? We did!
We looked at our forum and counted the number of times each of the GMAT prep books has been mentioned by our members and created a popularity ranking.



[Reveal] Spoiler: Old
Not sure about you, but I was surprised a little to see the books that made it to the top. On the other hand, the search results included all references starting with 2003, so potentially popularity of some books is inflated as others were not yet available back then. But again, at the end of March we will release the updated ranking that will reflect only results for March.

I am not sure how to best post tables in the forum, so here is one version and also another version with links at the bottom:
Code:
#   References   GMAT Club's Top 20 GMAT Books
1   2985   The Official Guide for GMAT Review
2   1667   Manhattan GMAT Sentence Correction
3   1332   GMAT 800
4   557   Official Guide for Verbal Review
5   494   Official Guide for Quantitative Review
6   427   Kaplan Verbal Workbook
7   360   Kaplan Math Workbook
8   334   Cracking the GMAT by Princeton Review
9   311   Kaplan Premier Program
10  215   Manhattan GMAT CR Book
11  195   Powerscore Critical Reasoning Bible
12  79   Manhattan GMAT Number Properties Guide
13  73   Project GMAT Advanced Math
14  71   Manhattan GMAT Word Translations Guide
15  57   Powerscore Sentence Correction
16  45   GMAT for Dummies
17  36   Manhattan GMAT Geometry Guide
18  6   Manhattan GMAT Fractions, Decimals, and Percents Guide
19  4   Manhattan GMAT Equations Inequalities and Vics Guide
20  4   The Ultimate Math Refresher for the GRE, GMAT, and SAT


Also, let me know if there other notable books we should include into our ranking and we will keep track of those as well.

It looks like this month the MGMAT books wiped everyone else out.

In terms of strategy, what would you guys suggest for someone just starting out to study the GMAT? I heard Princeton Review is the best for beginners. After understanding the test, I heard that people move onto Manahattan GMAT. Any thoughts?

Dear testme475

Here are a couple collections of book reviews ----

1) http://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/gmat-book-reviews-2013/
This is a general review, good and bad. You can read my review of the Princeton Review book here.

2) http://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/best-gmat- ... rces-2013/
This is just the cream of the crop.

I hope this helps.

Mike :-)

Re: Top 20 Best GMAT Books on GMAT Club [#permalink] New post 19 Jul 2013, 21:37
BB,

Thanks for the list, and i am happy to know that i have studied from most of the above mentioned material. However, i was searching for more quant material to practice and lately came across "Total GMAT Math" by Jeff Sackmann. I got the information about this book and its material after reading from the following posts:-

total-gmat-math-jeff-sackmann-86892.html
gmat-hacks-quant-1800-questions-jeff-sackmann-90761.html
jeff-sackmann-s-quant-sets-vs-total-gmat-math-114206.html?fl=similar

and was about to make a decision on this book and its material, but today after reading this page, i am a bit confused.

"Total GMAT Math" is costly but its reviews seems to be good. Please help me in making the decision. Should i go for it ?
(I have all the MGMAT quant guides, and Kaplan work book)

Thanks & Regards
Vinni

Not right now. We have lost the ability to track books and book clicks. But we should get it back in the next few months.

Thanks for bumping the thread!
