Hello there,
are the questions in OG 13 verbal section different form that in OG verbal Review2?? Is there any overlap between these two? I have Og13 and there are about 400 questions in verbal section. Og verbal review claims to have 300 questions. So are these 300 questions different form that of OG13 questions??
Isit be worth buying OG verbal review when I have OG13?

plz help...

Yes the questions do not overlap.
And also, investing on official questions do come with the best ROI, provided that you are using the books properly. (that is intense reviewing and googling the questions!)

While souvik101990 addressed your main questions, I will add that the OG Verbal 2 questions are noticeably easier than OG 13 questions. The book is still worth using, though.

Here is a comparison between the two editions of OG Verbal: the-official-gmat-verbal-review-1st-edition-vs-2nd-edition-83882.html

http://www.manhattangmat.com/blog/index.php/2012/03/20/manhattan-gmats-analysis-of-the-13th-edition-official-guide/

The questions are different in those two books, so there is no comparison of them.
The ROI question is for you to figure out. It depends what you have used for studying and where you are right now.

Hi bb,
Could you please let me know that which two books exactly you're specifying here ? Are they OG13 and OG Verbal 2 ? Are both of these having ALL unique questions in Verbal section ?

As far as OG Verbal 1 & 2 are concerned, there are qs. overlap as per this post : http://gmatclub.com/forum/the-official-gmat-verbal-review-1st-edition-vs-2nd-edition-83882.html
Please find MGMAT_zip file attached over there.

Hey Debayan
As far as I know,
OG 12 and OG 13 are overlapped to an extent of 70-80%.
Verbal 1 and Verbal 2 are overlapped to similar extent.
However, there is no overlap between Verbal 2 and OG 13.

Thanks Souvik for this help..!
But actually my question was somewhat different that do we have any analysis for OG verbal Review 1 & 2 in our forum like OG 12 analysis here @ http://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-club-guide-to-the-gmat-official-guide-12th-ed-85956-120.html ?

Probably not!
The mgmat OG Archer lite (free) might be useful though.
You can check it out!
