PR wud be a good place to start. I found Arco kinda silly as the question types were not quite similar to what you could expect in the real GMAT.

Try Kaplan after Arco.

hi:
thanks for the reply.
i got PR yesterday.. there was another one by Thompsom (somthing), which was on sale so i bought that as well only for some extra questions that i might want to work upon in some time...
kaplan is not avilable here, so for the time being i'll use PR..
can you suggest the bst approch? i mean i'm going to start going thrugh the study material first and then take the sample questions at end of each section/chapter.. is that the only way (?) or...?
dont mind! i'm a novice.

Go for the following :-

1. OG 11th edition, along with Verbal and Quant OG guides
2. Manhattan
3. Kaplan

I found first two pretty good and Kaplan is optional. Also, go to forums like GMATClub and this should be enough.

I am finding OG and Manhattan best of the lot. The best part about Manhattan is that it uses OG as the base.

Kaplan is good but not the same as OG, which gives Manhattan an edge. But if you want any additional material after Manhattan and OG, go for Kaplan.
