Best GMAT Verbal Books - 2018 edition


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

    1. Need to figure out your weaknesses? Take a GMATPrep test or one of the other many free GMAT tests available.
    2. Looking for a verbal study plan? General GMAT study plan | Verbal GMAT study plan
    3. Need to start with basics? (recommended for international applicants) - start with MGMAT Verbal Essentials
    4. Need highest score and have time: MGMAT Guides
    5. Need specific question practice? use gmat club tags
    6. Need help with Grammar? Try Ultimate GMAT Grammar book by GMAT Club

GMAT Verbal Books Catalogue


Official GMAT Books

- By GMAC
These are the official GMAT books. These books are essential for Verbal practice. However do not expect to learn or study from this set. These books contain retired official questions and are considered the best practice materials for GMAT Verbal.

Image

GMAT Official Guide - 2018 Ed

Strengths
    1. Contains 907 Real GMAT Questions.
    2. Best resource for Verbal (It is hard to replicate the GMAT esque style of questions so the OG is a great resource to develop the GMAT - ear)
    3. Question bank - Online
    4. Questions are scaffolded according to level of difficulty
    5. Contains a Verbal Diagnostic test (Includes a Quant diagnostic as well)
    6. It is easy to get questions based on particular topics (either from MGMAT or GMAT Club forum tags)

4. Mostly low and medium difficulty questions. Not very helpful to a person aiming to get above 700.

I'd like to put in a plug for my own books, which are cheap ($5 each!) and incredibly effective: https://gumroad.com/trevorklee

They're brief, so I don't think you can start from zero with them, but if the incredibly specific strategies of Manhattan or Aristotle aren't clicking for you, my books will provide you a foundation to build on. Also, they're great for native speakers who manage to get pretty good scores on GMAT Verbal because they're good at English, but have hit a wall because their lack of GMAT-specific Verbal knowledge.

Hi GMATters,

This week as a little gift I'm making copies of my Last Minute GMAT Grammar available for free for ONE WEEK (at this link): (link removed--after one week!)

It's a quick and dirty guide to changing your thinking about GMAT grammar--great for beginning, ending, or reviewing your work in SC.

No point in paying the full Amazon price! Here's the Amazon link: http://amzn.to/2kEUIfI

Just as a warning, I'm taking down this link in a week so get it while the getting's good.

As ever, I'm happy to hear any comments or suggestions--I'll work them into the 2nd edition!

Verbal:

Concepts

SC: Manhattan Sentence Correction Guide
CR: Either Manhattan Critical Reasoning Guide or Powerscore CR Bible
RC: No good book per se. A document titled ‘Gin’s RC’ helped me improve my score in this section. So probably a good bet to read this.
Practice

Official Guide
Official Guide Verbal
Quant:

Concepts

Manhattan - Set of 5 books (Even if you already know the concepts, it doesn’t hurt to go through this set of 5 books. There may be tiny bits of information which you didn’t know earlier)
Practice

Official Guide
Official Guide Quant
Additional:

The above mentioned books are the bare minimum you need to get a good score. Additionally, you may refer to any of these books for additional practice:

Kaplan 800 - Material only for those who are already at the 700 level
Kaplan Quant - Lot of questions
Veritas Books - Concepts + Good questions
Aristotle SC - Good revision of SC concepts
According to me, this should be sufficient. Of course, apart from this, mocks will be your best bet for additional practice.

Thanks for sharing this! It's really helpful :)

I will be facing my GMAT in 3 months, and I'm looking for the best resources.
I like this list because it's updated.

Thanks again!!
