After my first GMAT attempt, I have found I need to start from the ground up on quant. I'm looking for a good book on the basics of math to start. I have found a book called the no bull Shi* guide to math and physics. Any thoughts on this book? Anyone used it? It does have decent reviews!

Why? You do not need Physics for GMAT, so no reason to study what you will never be tested on. You hopefully don't buy a train ticket for a ride that goes 200 miles past your home town and then back track.... you can use a high school math book or something else, but why invent when you can get MGMAT Math Foundations - it is kind of the gold standard of basic math.

At the same time if you want to cover physics, it should not hurt. Have fun!

Hi jelobb88,

I would encourage you to study only from trusted sources for GMAT. You can try out the MGMAT guides they are phenomenal and cover the entire syllabus really well. You can also try GMATCLUB Math Book. You can refer to this link. https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-math-bo ... 30609.html

There are some great online resources that can help you out as well. In order to make an informed decision I would highly encourage you to go to their websites and try on their free trial and decide for yourself which one do you like better. You try out free access to EmpowerGMAT, Math Revolution and Optimus Prep as they have great reviews on GMATCLUB.

I must add that if you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

I would also encourage you practice all the questions twice from the latest version of OG and the GMATPREP QP1.

Hope this helps. All the best.
