Discovery of the GMAT Club has inspired me to shoot for 700+ [#permalink]

Hello everyone, I've been a member for 4 days and haven't logged off since.

Sometime last month, I purchased OG11 and tackled the 'Math Review', but found that it was a bit thin in terms of explanatory content and examples. Naively, this was the only book I thought I needed. Fortunately, it prompted me to research supplemental material and I stumbled across GMATClub. I haven't been here long but I feel very lucky to have discovered this board well before I take my test. It's even convinced me that with enough time/dedication, theres enough resources here to shoot for a 700+.

So enough of that, I have used GMATClub to narrow my Quant Prep down to: (this is where I need your help)

1. Manhattan GMAT Math Guides
2. EZ Solutions
3. GMAT Math Bible - Jeff Sackmann

I'm not really looking for a comparison since most people would only focus on one but I guess my question is, which series is catered towards the "math challenged"? In reality, I'm not, but I prefer to have a thorough understanding/explanations in front of me, even if the concept is simple/basic. I'm leaning towards EZ Solutions but I've also been reading great things about MGMAT series. I have 5 months to prepare, can anyone give some insight/experiences w/ any of the above 3?

I wish I could give more meaningful feedback on those specific books, but I haven't used them all. The Manhattan GMAT Number Properties Guide is really good, so I'd imagine that the others are good as well. I've always been interested in the GMAT Math Bible, but I've never had the opportunity to try it.

For covering all of the fundamentals from step 1, I'm a fan of Kaplan's GMAT Math Workbook.

Good luck with your quest to 700

Please let me know if you ended up using GMAT Hacks Math Bible by Jeff Sackmann. I'm seriously considering buying that but would really like to hear from someone who's used that book before I buy it.

@Pathfinder:

That's for the links! I found the descriptions/reviews helpful. I think I'm probably going to go for it.

I just got this book recently, mostly out of curiosity, and it looks really impressive so far. I haven't read enough to give an accurate assessment, but the table of contents covers every topic tested on the GMAT, including Probability, Combinations, Permutations, Functions, Symbolism, and Sequences.

Same here, I think the pdf guide covers all the types of questions tested on GMAT but again not enough practice questions, which you have to buy separately for >\$200.

@Avernusaur and megafan:

Yeah, GMAT Hacks sells the practice questions separately. It's \$249 for the practice questions which I find quite expensive. I think I'll probably just go for the Math Bible.

Recommend the Math Bible, you can read my tale here:

690-q39-v45-surprised-likely-retake-73916.html

I bought the questions but never got to them. I just worked the exercises in the GMHMB and then the OG for my retake. I had done the MGMAT study guides first.

The other thing I spent time on was I Jeff Sackmann's GMAT Math Bible. [1] It's not as detailed as the MGMAT SG's, but it was new content to me and it felt like decent practice. After all is said and done, I'm not sure what the right content really is to prepare, but I did consume a lot of it from a lot of sources. I didn't do any more Challenges here this time around.
