GMAT Guides and Manhattan Prep - worth it without online access  [#permalink]

Hello all,

I have found someone who is willing to sell the following second-hand for 200$

- GMAT Official guide bundle, that the 3 books
- Manhattan prep Complete GMAT strategy guides

That's a combined value of 335$. The problem is that these guides do NOT come with online access. Well, they do, but they will expire in a couple of weeks. I'm just starting my GMAT prep so I would need it for a while.

I'm wondering if online access is really worth it? Should I buy them new instead? Or is the 200$ price point good?

I don't think so but yes, you can go for it if you want. Besides, manhattan has released new guide and you need only SC guide to be frank, all others are just a waste of time. P.S You get those free for the online classroom program they offer.
As for GMAT, I would say why not just use GMAT Club sources instead of the online access

Hi a22mun,

Based on your initial post, it's not clear whether you're just beginning your studies or you have put in some significant study time already. Many GMATers use a variety of different study materials - some books and some online (courses, practice CATs, etc) - so whether you buy these books or not, you will almost certain end up investing in some addition non-book materials.

Before I can offer you any additional advice for your studies, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied? How many hours do you typically study each week?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) On what dates did you take EACH of your CATs/mocks and how did you score on EACH (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your overall goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School and what Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
