So I've been accepted in to two Top 25 MBA programs on the condition that I score well on Executive Assessment. I find the GMAC EA study guide is less than optimal. I figure that I'll study for the GMAT course for next 30 days minus the geometry portion and any other material that isn't scored on the EA. I need the most help with the quantitative and sentence structure part of the test. Should I buy the Manhattan Prep GMAT book set or follow the Magoosh 30-day study plan that uses Magoosh materials and the GMAC Official Guide?

Dear PaulSG,

This is Mike McGarry from Magoosh. I'm happy to respond.

First of all, I don't know that either is a bad choice--it many ways, it's win-win. The MGMAT books are superb. Depending how much time you have, you could do both: read the MGMAT math (minus geometry) & SC books, and watch the Magoosh math (minus geometry) & SC videos. Hearing ideas in more than one way can help you learn more deeply. You will have a little extra time in the schedule if you omit geometry & RC & CR.

Certainly one option would be to sign up for Magoosh and check it out during the 7-day trial. That would give you a feel for what we offer.

I hope this helps. Feel free to ask me anything else. Best of luck!

Mike

Thanks for the quick response, Mike. I'm a little confused on what topics I can forgo studying. Are Geometry, Reading Comprehension, and Critical Reasoning not covered on the assessment? Sentence Correction is covered, correct?

I haven't used the online tools for MGMAT, but the books are great. As far as Magoosh goes, it's the best all-in-one resource that I have used. I would warn you that the questions on average are slightly more difficult than those in the OG.

Dear PaulSG,

I'm happy to respond. Geometry is NOT on the EA. The EA has Integrated Reasoning, so those data-driven topics are in play: in fact, on the EA, IR and Q & V all count the same. The Verbal part has SC & RC & CR--all three question types are covered. I simply mentioned SC only because you gave me the impression, perhaps mistaken, that this was the only part of the Verbal test you felt you needed to study.

Here's a set of articles by that MGMAT genius Stacey Koprince:
How to Study for the Executive Assessment

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Mike
