Hello everyone,

I've decided to open this thread because I haven't find a definitive answer to my questions. On MGMAT Guides (2012) is it essential, according to your experiences, to complete all of the exercises at the end of the chapters (note that they aren't GMAT-related as they are simply questions not following the structure of the exam) or is it sufficient to focus only on the theoretical part and then practice on other books (OG 13 first of all)? Do these exercises add something or are they just intended to make you remember the rules previously described?
I've already studied Kaplan Premier 2013 (with exercises this time) and the MGMAT complete strategy Guides, taking notes and trying to summarize all the most important rules, so I really don't know whether it's better for me to go back to the MGMAT exercises or to begin with practice questions, error log and flash cards part immediately. Time doesn't matter for me actually, in fact I plan to devote months to prepare for the exam but I haven't decided the date yet.
Thank you all in advance for the precious help!

I would do the exercises as they allow you to consolidate what you learn in the theoretical part of the books. Even though they do not follow GMAT structure, they are still related with topics that appear on the GMAT. Also, as they are more 'math intensive' than the actual questions, I feel like they give you the opportunity to practice/find new ways to solve problems.
