The GMAT itself hasn't changed, so purely from a content perspective you should be fine going with either edition. Also, you should check whether they have managed to update their guides yet. The review and publication processes must take some time, so it's possible that the editions currently in the market don't actually refer to questions in OG2018.

You need not have to buy MGMAT 6th edition guide, if you have 5th edition guide.

Hi KalyaniJyotsna,

Since it sounds like you're just beginning your studies, then it would be a good idea to take a FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Test; you can download 2 for free from www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). If you want to do a little studying first, so that you can familiarize yourself with the basic content and question types, then that's okay - but you shouldn't wait too long to take that initial CAT. That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. A FULL CAT takes about 4 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan.

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) What is your goal score?
2) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
3) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

I would recommend to get 6th edition of MGMAT Sentence correction. IMO, it is organized much better than 5th edition.
Also, consider getting PowerScore CR bible, it's one of the best books for critical reasoning setion.

Hi

Both Editions are good, if you have both edition go with 6th edition but if you have to pay additional sum of money for 6th edition then 5th is all right

Good Luck

Hi KalyaniJyotsna,

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 and added some new concepts 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 not only the latest version of OG but also the Quant and verbal review for some great additional practice. Hope this helps. All the best.
