:evil: Veritas told me last year that this(2009) is the latest one..! I did even ask them before purchasing! Perhaps,latest edition was not out there at that time.BTW,what is the publication month of your latest edition ?

Hey Souvik,
I've few queries on the Veritas prep books :

1.Can you please let me know that between Veritas prep's SC1 and SC2 what's the basic difference ? If I consider it for practice,which book should be better-1 or 2 ?

2.Also it would be great if you shed some light on Algebra book...how many Questions(700+),any special strategies etc.!

3.Which one is better and worth to own Algebra or Arithmetic book in your opinion?

Appreciate your feedback.

Hi!

1. I got the latest 10th anniversary Veritas books which did not have SC1 and SC2. It had 4 Verbal books. 3 for SC, CR and RC and 1 advanced verbal workbook.
2. I have not gone through the quant books except the probability and the word problems book :P. I completely trust the GMATClub tests and Sir Bunuel.
3. None. For quant I would just do GMATClub tests, browse the forum, watch thursdays with Ron, follow Bunuel, try Bunuels signature and if possible do grockit (very good questions on a low budget)


Thanks for your quick reply!
1.I see..things seem to be bit different in your case.May be they didn't want the general course to be thrown away for free :P
2 & 3.Yup ! Agree with you..undoubtedly Sir Bunuel is a 'Masterpiece' and so his creations are..:) thursdays with Ron is also a great free resource out there in the market..

And oh! I've consolidated thursdays with Ron on SC in my post..Please refer to my sig. I don't think you've seen that..

Actually from your review,I thought you went deep into the Veritas Quant books... :wink:


Yeah so I did not go through the quant books as deeply I should. Probably because my quant was always 50/51 and I would only do the harder problems Bill (instructor) mailed us. Worked better that way.
And, the books we got are the new books. The older books, are well old. But I have a sense that they contain the same problems, because the veritas on demand app on the iPad has the same questions as the new book and I am sure that they have not updated the on-demand app.

Hi everyone,

Just to clarify, our most recent edition of GMAT course books contains 12 volumes. You know you have the "old" or "new" set based on whether SC and CR each come as one book or two -- if it has ONE book per topic, you know you have the newest set.

Also, Vips has it right: The newest set (which has 12 books) is in reprint right now, and will be available for retail purchase in just another week or two. This new one coming out reflects the all-new curriculum we released this past fall, but with some modifications, additions, and errata fixes. If you have the old books, you will find that many of the practice problems carry over, but the lesson content is entirely new compared to the old books! Students who buy a new book kit get access to our online solutions sets.

Let me know if I can answer more questions!

Scott

I have only taken one and it depends really.
How easy an adaptive test is really depends on how well you perform in it.
So, its very hard to comment on the difficulty level of a test that is adaptive.
