Hi All,

Looks like the new OG for '18 will be out in June. Big change in the look but overall the update is very similar to what we got from 2016 to 2017 (15% new questions). If you want to get started studying now go ahead and buy the current edition. Those "new" questions don't mean a heck of a lot.

Here's the Amazon page: https://www.amazon.com/GMAT-Official-Gu ... 018+Bundle

Happy Studies,

A.

Current release date: June 19, 2017. I'm not a fan of the new look, but I guess GMAC felt the need to change it up. Good old planned obsolescence...

Thanks for posting! I like the "New Questions" comment The last few years, the new OG Questions came from previous OG sources such as paper tests, PowerPrep, and OG 10, so by "new" GMAC often means, not included in the previous edition of the book, but possibly included 2 editions ago or who knows where else. OG is still an important book and very cheap source of questions but updates from edition to edition are less meaningful.

I wonder if they will actually improve wiley.com with this edition or it will still be as user-unfriendly as it is today.

I am giving my exam in October 2017. Is it okay to use the 2018 version? Because I am getting that one at a discount price compared to the 2017 OG.

Hi kanika313,

Both of the recent versions of the main Official Guide (GMAT2018 and GMAT2017) are great sources for practice questions, but neither book was designed to teach you Tactics, patterns or the little 'secrets' to the GMAT. Depending on your personal strengths, weaknesses and score goal, you will almost certainly need additional resources beyond this OG though.

Since it sounds like you're just beginning your studies, then it would be a good idea to take a FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Test; you can download 2 for free from www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). If you want to do a little studying first, so that you can familiarize yourself with the basic content and question types, then that's okay - but you shouldn't wait too long to take that initial CAT. That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. A FULL CAT takes about 4 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan.

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) What is your goal score?
2) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
3) What Schools are you planning to apply to?
