What's the best way to use the MGMAT guides? [#permalink]

I'm going through these methodically, and I want to note what I'm weak at or need more practice on, but the books only have a handful of questions each! I was thinking about going through the specific categories of question bank on here after completing the corresponding MGMAT section, but would love to hear some advice on how you guys systematically handled this. Did you purchase the Princeton Review question book and go through that at the same time, or just use the questions on here, or what?
You definitely want to practice with real GMAT questions! Our strategy guides are designed to be used in conjunction with the Official Guide for GMAT Review, 13th edition. At the end of each book (Appendix A) is a list of official practice problems for each topic covered in the book. Once you've checked your skills with the review problems at the end of each chapter, you should delve into these official practice problems in short sets, reviewing carefully after each set. We encourage you to go for quality over quantity, but if you end up wanting more, or if you've already worked a lot of the Official Guide questions, we also list all of the related questions in the 2nd edition Quant & Verbal Review books.

I found that using the Manhattan problems with the corresponding OG questions was enough. By taking my time (not worrying about test timing), I'd get the most out of each section. Each time I moved to the next book, I began to forget stuff I already learned, so I'd pick out one day each week to go through previous sections. When I did that, I'd pick out random questions from previous sections to re-work and review. Re-doing old problems wasn't an issue -- by the time I moved on, I'd forgotten exactly how to solve them, so it didn't feel like recycling the same material. I didn't use any other problem banks, and I was pretty rusty with quant stuff when I started studying.
