Dear GMAT community,

I am now working on the GMAT for over one month. Regarding the Quant section, I am working with Kaplan books. I do almost all exercices pretty easily however when it comes to the real GMAT preparation software I get disappointing results. What do you think about Kaplan books ? What were the books you found to be closer from real GMAT questions ?

I am also thinking about taking a self-preparation package. However, I am a bit lost between all existing products (Magoosh, E-GMAT, Empower GMAT, Veritas...). What is for you the most comprehensive package ? I am targeting a 660-700 score.

Thanks for your help!

Hello louisd8 - To be honest which material to refer completely depends on the respective individual.

So for example, someone might have scored 700+ using Kaplan Books, however, you are facing some challenges and it can be a vice a versa.

Here are some of the reputed courses in the market, but before you go ahead and purchase these courses, I highly recommend you to take a trail. Purchase the course only if you like it.

SC: Book of Manhattan is Grear, though you will have to read it more than one time as not all the concepts will be clear in one reading. I also have heard rave reviews about E-GMAT specifically for SC, and do not hesitate to take a trial for this.

CR: Nothing Beats Power Score when it comes to CR and it is genuinely regarded as "The Bible" for CR

RC Veritas RC Strategy is good and you can club OG passages for practice along with this

Quant: Theory - Manhattan Guides and Tests - GMAT Club Tests(The Best!)

Please note this is just personal opinion, and as I said what works for me may not work for you, so take this with a pinch of salt.

Hope this helps and wish you all the best :-)

"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."
