Hey,
I am 34, and haven't "studied" in 15 years. My math is sub par, at best. What book would you all recommend for a guy like me that basically needs to start from scratch and re-learn the math portion?

I would probably use GMATClub and some old High School math books to comprehensively relearn the math stuff.

Get OG11 for practice questions...

Princeton Review is full of uessing techniques (which is not for me)

Manhattan Review explain concepts in great detail and in my case it's the book to brush up all concepts I need for GMAT.

Kaplan is also good, but not as good as Manhattan Review. Kaplan has really good practice questions.

Official Guides of course, are a must. They're the best book out there only because they're the people who make the test, so they know what they're talking about.

I agree that Manhattan Review books are great. I had them when when I took their course right before my GMATs and they helped a lot. They update these books frequently so that's always a good thing. Make sure you get the newest one.

I did have the PR books. I didn't think they were that great, but they were alright if you need brush up on your basic skills.
