Hi
This is Mohammed from KSA. As you can tell I am not an English native speaker.
I have a quick question. I just got the official guide for GMAT review with the math and verbal book. Also, I have Kaplan book which I studied in 2015.

What do you think guys? Should I review the Kaplan book then start the official guide for GMAT review with the math and verbal book or just start the official guide for GMAT review with the math and verbal book.

Also, sometimes I find some problem understanding the meaning of vocabularies in math. Please if you have any math vocabulary's list attached here!

Thank you,
Manager

Hello mohd_int,
Since you have Official Guides and Kaplan only, you should learn the concepts from the Kaplan book and practice from those concepts from the Official Guides. Official guide is just the collection of official question. Here is link https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-math-book-87417.html to the gmat club's math book. Best of luck for your gmat studies.

Hi
first of all get a plan, "how much time you need to get your desire result". I will suggest that the official guide is the best source. However, For quant you can use Manhattan and Gmatclub..These two sources are awesome. If you are non-native English speaker then egmat is a good course as it is designed for candidates whose primary language isnt English. The other sources Magoosh or veritas are also good.
Veritas Mocks are awesome...You can find different courses and all are more or less the same. It depends on you that how you use these sources. Keep an error log and revise ur mistakes weekly. Do give mock once a week.

Hi Mohammed,

Please find below my recommendations :

1. Download the GMATPrep software and take one of two free tests you get.
You will find this in mba.com. Once you have a preliminary score,
experts on the forum will be able to show you a clear path as to how you could proceed.

2. Once, you begin with the preparation for GMAT, first clear your concepts(topic-wise)
and follow it up with some practice. To build your concepts, you could use Manhattan Guides
or the Math Book(link shared by @mkrishnabdrr)

For practice, you can find questions here at our forum - GMATClub.

Follow Bunuel at the Math Forum(for the Quant Section)
His signature contains some awesome questions that give you the true taste of GMAT.
Baker's Dozen, 12 Easy Pieces etc..
Also, Solve each and every question he puts up on the forum.

3.As for improving vocabulary related to the a particular type of problem,
if a certain type of question troubles you. Do some specific topic wise practice &
get rid of the problem. For example, I used to get confused when a question said
"three times as big as" or "he works thrice as fast as her". I did 20-25 questions with
similar wordings, like a drill. Now it confuses me a lot lesser.

Also, invest in the GMATPrep Test Series(EP1,EP2 and QP1) and use these CATs to assess
your progress.

Last but not the least, this is a post which will benefit you immensely(since you are just starting out)

Hope it helps you in some way!

Thank you,


I would suggest you to start with taking a mock test. You can download the gmatprep software from GMAC website. Also you can use free mock available from manhattan gmat or veritas prep.

Set your baseline based on the scores you get. This identifies your strength and weakness. And then you can start preparing for the quant or verbal.

There are lot of topics on how to prepare for the GMAT. Look into those topics to get some ideas. All the best.

You could consider using this. The authors of that book are on this forum itself, so support is also available, should you need it.
