Hello Guys how likely is it that there will be a fundamental change in the gmat process so the books and courses now are instantly becoming outdated? I am considering to buy all the Ressources (Manhattan GMAT, and Official Guides) this month, although I plan to do my GMAT next year july.

Another Question is, the Business School I want to apply to, doesn't look at the total score but at the relative percentage, is there any table who shows the actual percentage of each total score? When are you better then 80% or 90% of the people?

1. In terms of concepts, none whatsoever. You can start studying now for an exam next year, though preparing over such a long period of time has some major disadvantages. If you're not looking to start preparing now, you could just buy the same books later at a lower price, if that's important to you.

2. You can check the latest percentiles here.

As you may know, the length of the GMAT test is shortening - this month.

Over the years, the GMAT has continually adjusted the types of questions ever so slightly - with the most significant change in 2013 - with the addition of integrated reasoning. But since this section does not affect the core test - the part where you are scored on an 800 score - its importance is still being assessed in the admissions industry.

So for the most part - you can prepare now - and still know that what you are studying now will likely be highly relevant towards your exam in the near future.

As you gather resources, you may find these video tutorials helpful:

Here is a Google Sheet with links to OG SC video explanations:

As an example, you can try to watch through a few walkthroughs here:

This is a great resource from which to practice and also hear an expert's perspective thinking through test questions.

We encourage you to explore some of the success stores of GMAT Pill-ers at:
