hi guys. although it was long time ago when i signed up to this forum, this is my first post here. because i'm about to start to study toefl and gmat.

the question is on the top. three months later, i am going to take toefl and gmat exams. so i have to study them at the same time. i have school one day per week. the rest of the week, i am free and i can study up to 15 hours at least per day. these are the tools what i have:

for toefl:
1- cambridge toefl ibt with cd-rom( also includes audio cd's)
2- kaplan toefl ibt with cd-rom( also includes audio cd's)
3- princeton review- cracking the toefl ibt
4- ets- offical guide to the toefl ibt
5- longman toefl ibt with cd-rom(also includes audio cd's)
6- barrons toefl ibt with cd-rom(also includes audio cd's)

for gmat:
1- manhattan- sentence correction
2- manhattan- critical reasoning & reading comprehension
3- princeton review- cracking the gmat
4- the offical guide for gmat 12th edition
5- the offical guide for gmat 10th edition
6- manhattan- fractionals, decimals and percents.

ok, what do you think about these tools? are they sufficient? hey, i didn't take any prep test yet. so i don't know where i am right now. but as general english my level is advanced.

for the quantitative i couldn't find manhattan books in my country's bookstores. so do you have any suggestion alternative to manhattan quant series? though i trust myself in maths more than in verbal.

and how about the prep tests? how often should i take a prep test? one per week? or more?

thank you in advance. ciao:)

Welcome to GMAT Club Migelo!

It used to be that TOEFL was easy to study after GMAT but not so much with the new format and speaking/listening section that tests skills not tested on the GMAT. A few other books to suggest to your list would Kaplan Math workbook (if you don't have access to the MGMAT books) and possibly Kaplan Premier, again if you have these around.

I would focus mostly on the background/fundamentals rather than solving a lot questions.

A few other thoughts:
1. Take TOEFL first, that way you will know where the test center is and the test center environment
2. Depending on your level, 3 months may or may not be enough - set realistic goals (I would not study 15 hrs/day). Set a day off too so you dont' feel guilty
3. Take diagnostic tests soon so you know your level and weaknesses

Also, depends on your starting point. Take a GMAT Prep for a diagnostic and you'll know how high/low you'll need to climb.
