Really the best books are the ones directly from Official Guide. If you need additional practice, try the OG Quant book or the OG Verbal book.

After that, have you considered learninig through videos instead of a book? Might be easier for you to comprehend the material. All depends on what learning style fits you best.

Hi @linguarama,

There are several companies that provide video-based learning - basically creating the feel of a personal tutor by your side. Videos tend to be better for visual and auditory learners because you can see and here a GMAT expert teach you a lesson or go through an explanation. But videos aren't for everyone, it just depends on your learning style. See the examples below for a better sense of video-based GMAT prep.

An example math video lesson from Magoosh:
FOIL method

An example of practice question with a video explanation:
Geometry Question

We also have similar lessons and questions for Verbal.

I hope that helps!
Bhavin
