Quick question, I'm looking for a book of challenging math and SC questions. I used to see Kaplan 800 mentioned a a good book for challenges, but all I see in the book store is Kaplan Advanced. Is this the same book with a slight name change?

I havent really used KAPLAN 800 / advanced ; however if you are looking for some tough SC's , you may try Brutal SC or 1000SC. They are a good source of non-OG questions.

Wow bb this the most I have posted yet!

I have the Kaplan 800 book and it is not nearly hard enough in the Math section. The verbal is pretty good though. For tough math probelms order the GMATClub tests - trust me my friend, there are none tougher. Just remember when you take them your not going to do well, but they will get you ready. Just remember to really study them after you take them. Remember to get some vaseline before you take them also lol.........

Yes, Kaplan 800 and Kaplan Advanced are the same exact books. I did not find them that impressive. Probably 650-700 level at most. Also the layout is cumbersome - read my review of the Kaplan Advanced Book on Amazon - I gave it 1 star as a guidebook but 3 stars as a question collection.

Do look into the GMAT Club Tests - they are 700+ level.

I used this book, it is helpful, but as others said..it is more like GMAT 650..I have not looked at the Challenges, but by gauging the scores of those forum user's that have, I would say they are worth using.
