Hi,
I'm planning on taking the GMAX online course. Currently, I have:

OG 10th edition
Kaplan GMAT 2005 Edition
Arco-Master the GMAT CAT 2004

If you have already taken the course, could you please let me know if Barron's guide is really necessary for the homework questions? If it's not, I won't be buying it.

Your response would be greatly appreciated!!!!

You ask if the Barron's GMAT book is really necessary. The book is well suited to the GMAX Online course, and is used throughout the sentence correction lessons and homework. I agree that it may be less valuable as a self-study guide, but we don't intend you to use it that way.
Nevertheless, many students find the math review and questions helpful.

Altho I don't know how GMAX integrates its course with Barron, but one thing is well known that Barron is one of the worst GMAT guide out there. Its sections and questions are way off.

i completely agree, i wouldnt spend my money on barrons its just not worth it, most of their explanations are not making any sence or plain wrong. its horrible, ignore it, spend your money on something else. like beer
