Just signed up for my first GMAT today, scheduled for July 28th. Needing to get a 600 minimum, but looking for 650+.

My sister wrote it back in 2015 and she still has her 2015 quantative and verbal review books. Are they still usable?
Or should I go out and buy the 2017 OG and Quant/Verbal?

Also, any other study material you guys strongly recommend? I've heard the GMAT prep exam package is extremely good.

Thanks in advance for your responses!

Hi ghg07,

2015 Official GMAT guides are perfectly fine. There is nothing revolutionary that has been revealed in the later guides, and I am sure that will be the case with the 2018 guides that come out in June. This is a standard planned obsolescence technique used by publishing houses to sell more books. I would save the money and use it to buy say GMATPrep Question Pack 1.

Hi ghg07,

Any of the recent versions of the Official Guides (going back to 2013) would be fine to use during your studies, but it's likely that you'll need to invest in a variety of additional resources as well.

Since it sounds like you're just beginning your studies, then it would be a good idea to take a FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Test; you can download 2 for free from www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). If you want to do a little studying first, so that you can familiarize yourself with the basic content and question types, then that's okay - but you shouldn't wait too long to take that initial CAT. That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. A FULL CAT takes about 4 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan.

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) What is your goal score?
2) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
3) What Schools are you planning to apply to?
