Hi

I am taking the GMAT in Oct this year. As a first step I thought I would buy 'The official guides for GMAT review'.

CONFUSION: The mba dot com websites shows that the 13th edition and 2nd edition in Quant & Verbal are the latest editions. But online retailers & the publisher wiley's websites have another version too 'The official guides for GMAT review 2015'.

Please guide me...which one should i buy...The 13th edition or the 2015 edition.

Hi, I would suggest you to wait for some 2 or 3 weeks. As the scheduled release of this book(2015 Version) as per amazon/wiley is 23rd July.

Also the Wiley website says that this is the ONLY official guide to have more than 900 retired problems (Most will be there in OG 13 also).


But many new retired questions will also be there.


It is always better to buy a new version. Also this is about to release in couple of weeks.

Hi,

Im scheduled to be taking my GMAT on 20 September'14.
I was enrolled with Princeton Review in India.
- So far I have completed the Princeton Review material (online and Paper)
- I have completed the OG-13 edition, thereafter I started with the OG 12 edition
However iv observed that almost all of the questions in the OG 12edition are repeated(as in same as 13th edition)

As evident from the date above i currently have an entire month of Prep time on Hand.
Can someone please suggest a book that i can take to for practice in the remaining days (especially for Verbal).
My choice would be the Quant/Verbal review by GMAC. However if the questions are not going to be challenging enough then it will not make great practice for me.

Practice Test scores - 610 - 630 (on the Princeton tests)
I need to make it to 680 - 700..

Please suggest.

Best Regards.

I took the GMATprep from MBA.com and had a dismal performance to say the least. With Quant being my weakest subject I am looking for some good books to begin studying up. I am thinking about the following books.

Total GMAT Math by Jeff Sackmann

The Official Guide for GMAT Review Paperback

Foundations of GMAT Math, 5th Edition (Manhattan GMAT Preparation Guide: Foundations of Math)


I also downloaded the MAGOOSH Complete Guide to GMAT.

My main concern is with so much material available I do not want to get something that is out of date especially with the recent changes to the exam.

Any advice would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I'm having some trouble practicing for the GMAT and I'm looking for some advice. I'm trying to practice difficult questions (700+) to beat the 700 threshold, however I'm having trouble finding questions for good practice. I have the following books:

MGMAT Set of 8: Has hard questions but not enough for a good amount of practice

Kaplan Gmat Premier: all of the questions seem like low difficulty questions

Princeton Review 1037 practice questions: all of the questions seem like low difficulty questions

The Official Guide 2015: all of the questions seem like low difficulty questions

All of these books (except for MGMAT) seem just too easy compared to the real thing. Where can I go to practice difficult questions to get me past the 700 mark?

Hey all,

I'm pretty much disturbed with how my studying goes now and would really appreciate advice from you. So, I've thoroughly read all Manhattan Guide books and started practicing real questions and it's still SO difficult, esp. with Math, even though I've been doing this for a while already. I have never had problems with math and expected this would be easier. I suck with almost any new type of question I see and even with some I already met and read an explanation (even including 600-points level).

Would you advice to read some more theory or just practice as much as possible? Does it happen with other people?:)

I have just finished reading the Total GMAT Math book by Jeff Sackmann.
I am an Undergraduate Economics student and I am currently at a 46-47 lvl at the Quantitative section.
I have concluded that:

1) Its a well-written and comprehensive book for everyone that starts from 0 with very good explanations about the problems.
2) Its a beginner's book. You won't be able to improve yourself from Q45 to Q47 for example.
3) Its questions are either too easy (which is not bad, because it lets you understand deeply each section) or of medium difficulty (Challenges problems).
4) This book can also be useful if you want to revise some basics about Maths.

Overall, I think that 50$ (approximately) is a really nice price for the book even though it didn't help me get my Quant score a step further.


I' ve also bought MGMAT's Advanced Quant book. I will give a review once I read it.
