Hi,

Had been planning to give GMAT for a while now but hadnt gotten the chance.

I have finally put myself together and have started with putting in at least 3 hours every day. I did a diagnostic and scored 550. I am aiming for a 700 plus.

I have the manhattan fourth edition guides, which has 5 math books and 2 english books. A friend gave these to me back in 2014 when i had been planning to give it.

Are they outdated now or should i stick to these? I have just started so i can still go to the new editions.

A quick reply would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi,

I don't think buying new books would be a good idea as you already have them.

Manhattan books are quite costly, so save your money.

You can use GMATClub for more questions on Manhattan. Other than that, you should be good.

I'm studying now and am using the 4th edition- I think it is fine. I would get the OG 12, which is what the 4th ed Manhattan books refer to for additional practice; it's very cheap used. The only books I would consider upgrading would be the verbal. I believe they have all been overhauled since the 4th edition. I bought them each individually used.

Hi Haider1,

You should be fine beginning your studies with the books that you have. However, many Test Takers who use a 'book heavy' study approach end up getting 'stuck' at a particular score level, so you'll likely end up needing to invest in some non-book resources at some point.

Raising a 550 to a 700+ will take some considerable effort - and all of that work will likely take at least another 3 months of consistent, guided study.

1) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
2) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
3) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

Hi

Manhattan have published its 4th edition in 2009
5th edition in 2012, 6th edition in 2014
although 6th edition is not available free of cost but 5th edition is available in PDF format free of cost
and it is far better than 4th edition. Selection in yours

Does their website mention in which ways they've improved their books? I think you should be fine though. It's not as if there are big changes on the GMAT that just weren't there in 2014.

I don't think content has changed as the GMAT hasn't changed much recently (apart from the IR section of course)

Hi Haider1,

With each edition the guides have only gotten better. Yes there have been some drastic changes especially in the Sentence Correction, Reading comprehension and Number Properties guides in that they have introduced some new strategies with some new Chapters which are very helpful. If you are on a budget, you can purchase the aforementioned guides. If, however, you do not mind spending, go with the new guides and you will not be disappointed. Plus you will get access to all 6 MGMAT tests and online question bank with each guide, which is great. To complement your guides, I would also encourage you to purchase the latest version of OG and Quant and verbal review for some great additional practice.

Hope this helps. All the best.

Hi rohan2345

I recently purchased the latest version of OG with quant and verbal review. I'm now looking to purchase the MGMAT Set but unsure of what to buy. Please forgive my ignorance but what is the difference between Manhattan GMAT Complete Strategy Guide Set, 5th Edition [Pack of 10] (Manhattan Gmat Strategy Guides: Instructional Guide) 5 Pck Pap/ Edition and Complete GMAT Strategy Guide Set (Manhattan Prep GMAT Strategy Guides) Sixth Edition, and which one is best?

Your input would be much appreciated and apologies to OP for potentially hijacking thread. :)

Hi mrdlm,

Happy to help. Manhattan GMAT Complete Strategy Guide Set, 6th Edition is the latest version of Strategy guides released by the MGMAT instructors. All the concepts are pretty much the same from the previous versions; however they have broken down and simplified a few concepts by adding some new chapters in each strategy guide. As I mentioned in my previous post, the 3 guides Sentence correction, Reading comprehension and Number properties guides have gone through some drastic changes. If you have the previous edition just go for these three guides if you must. If however, you do not have the previous edition and are deciding between the 5th and the 6th edition, then go for the 6 edition, as the makers have done a great job in simplifying the concepts even further. The 5 Pck Pap/edition I think includes just the Quant guides which are Fraction, Decimals & Percents, Algebra, Word Problems, Geometry and Number properties. Hope this helps a little. Feel free to reach out if you have any other questions. All the best.
