Hi,
I have searched around the forum but I could not find the answer to my question.

After intensive research, I have decided upon my study plan where I will use Magoosh, OG2018 and 6 Manhattan CATs to prepare. I will also get the Manhattan book in which I think I need the most improvement in.

However, Manhattan sells 6 CATs separately for $50 and only 1 CAT if you purchase any one book among the 6th edition series. Although, in my country, a single 5th edition book which has 6 CATs bundled together is also available for sale. I don't know if those 6 bundled CATs will have the latest test settings of choosing the order of the sections or not. Also, will it be worth to buy the 6 CATs and then to buy a book separately? Further, any major gap between the 6th and 5th edition?

So, should I:
A. Buy 6 CATs separately and the 6th edition MGMAT book if I need it.
B. Buy a 5th edition MGMAT book bundled with the 6 CATs along with it.

Cost difference comes to about $80 between the two options. It's not much in the grander scheme of things but if I can save some money, why not?

Thanks for the reply. So no major quality gaps between the 2 editions, right?

There shouldn't be any major differences in terms of either quality or content. The structure might be a bit different. Also, just keep in mind that the book(s) you buy might refer to questions in a different edition of the official guide.
