Hi guys,

May I have your comments about the book 'BARRON'S 2007 - How to prepare for the GMAT (incl CD)'?

I have actually never read any mention of anyone using Barron's for GMAT prep in any of the b-school forums.

I used Barron's for a little while. Simply put, the book will not deliver any desirable results on test day. I suggest that everyone avoid this book.

Yeah, it deserves a spot on the "worst GMAT prep books" list. Actually, it might be a good idea to have a list like that . . .

We used to, but the publishers were getting offended, and kept asking to take them off, complaining, pleading, and threatening. I finally took the thread off. If anyone else wants to maintain one.... please feel free.

Pretty much the way it works, the ones in the top-gmat-prep-books-guides-reviews-comments-77703.html thread are worth looking at; the rest are a wash.
