What kind of score would I achieve with these books? [#permalink] New post 14 Oct 2013, 13:21
Today I am going to start my study plan for the gmat. But I wonder what kind of score(quant) can I expect when I have worked through Foundations of GMAT Math(by Manhattan)? I know it is just the foundation but is it enough to score average? Don't worry I will also go through the guides of Manhattan, I believe there are 9 guides there, and I will ofcourse do the questions of OG 13. How well do I have to study to score like 600 on quant? Median score is around 560; on what level is that math skill?

I also have to brush up my English skill al lot. Thus, I am planning to complete a grammar book. I am still undecided which grammar book to pick. Grammar book by Gmatclub or Grammar in Use. Which book would be in my best interest? Cost is not a factor.

So, if I gave you a pair of ski's could you tell me how fast one would ski down a mountain?
It is not about the books..... it is about determination, focus, and perseverance.

Yes ofcourse...

I'm just asking what can one achieve with these books? Will these books be enough? Because the quant guides didnt seem to be too hard. However, I saw some questions on here and it is alot harder than what is in the books. For which score are the books preparing you for? I have read your review on the fundamentals of gmat, and you wrote the questions in that book were too easy in comparison with the actual gmat question. Define too easy. 300-400 range?

Yes that is because you are working on Foundation book(to brush up your basics). Now for complete series you can go for Veritas guides or manhattan guides.
