Best GMAT Math Books 2019

Here are the couple of things you should take notice of before waging the war against GMAT Quant.


  1. Need to figure out your weaknesses in GMAT math? Take a Free Quant Diagnostic Test from GMAT Club or Math Revolution
  2. Rusty with Math or want to be very methodical - start with basics: MGMAT Math Foundations
  3. Need to refresh in a short amount of time? Try Kaplan Math Workbook + MGMAT Number Properties + MGMAT Word Translations or Magoosh Course
  4. Need the highest Quant score and have time? You have a few Options:
  5. Need additional quant question practice? Use Forum Question Banks
  6. Looking for Q51? Try the Ultimate Q51 Guide




GMAT Math Books

Image
Manhattan GMAT (MGMAT) Guides

Strengths:
1. Good balance between test taking strategies and background theory explanations
2. Single-topic focus of each guide allows the student to purchase only those guides that pertain to his/her weaknesses
3. Covered concepts are illustrated with examples that are conveniently assigned to either PS or DS section.
4. Access to 6 Online CAT's (requires purchasing a bundle)
5. Additional online practice question banks (different for each book)
Weaknesses:
1. Time - it is a serious collection of books






Image
Veritas Prep Guides

Strengths:
1. 12 total guides + an intro book for quant + test simulation booklet
2. Practice questions. Every one of the guides is packed with practice questions
3. Fresh questions; you probably have not seen them on forums
4. Access to 7 CAT's

Weaknesses:
1. Spacing is a bit strange sometimes with only one question per page








Image
Kaplan GMAT Math Workbook

Strengths:
1. Fairly comprehensive review of the basic math concepts needed for the GMAT
2. Structure of the book allows you to work from start to finish, building on previous skills learned
3. Sections devoted to Word problem and Data Sufficiency questions

Weaknesses:
1. Statistics, Combinations/Permutations and Probability are not covered
2. Questions do not reflect GMAT questions, but rather are designed to insure that the material is mastered
Notes: Recommended/most interesting problem compilation from Kaplan Math Workbook
Faster than going through the math MGMAT Guides, but also not as thorough





Image
Official Guide for GMAT Quantitative Review 2019

Strengths:
1. 300 real GMAT questions from past tests (mostly easy)
2. Great for additional math practice questions, but don't expect to find any strategies or lessons here.
3. The practice questions are organized by level of difficulty
4. The practice questions follow actual GMAT test patterns - great to have one's ear trained.

Weaknesses:
1. The book does not contain any strategies
2. It does have a few short review sections but they are very weak
3. Mostly easy and medium difficulty questions. Not very helpful to a person aiming to get above 700.





Image
GMAT Club Math Book

Strengths:
1. 120 pages covering some of the trickier and harder topics such as Number Theory, Probability, and Combinations
2. It is Free!
3. Has sample and practice questions with extensive explanations and support on the forum

Weaknesses:
1. It does not have some of the more basic topics such as simple algebra and arithmetic
2. You will need to find more practice questions
