Hi Guys,

I have a question for you.. I'm starting my GMAT preparation and I have already bought the entire Manhattan Gmat Strategy Guides (10 books) plus 5 Supplements (included Advanced Quant book) and the entire Veritas Prep Curriculum (12 books). They say they are the best available in the market, but i don't know what i have to start with. The MGMAT is more content-based, Veritas more strategical (think like the test maker, learning by doing etc etc). Please, if you possess both, tell me your opinion. Thank you for help!!

You really only need one or the other. Doing both will not result in a higher score automatically (most likely will depress you) - think of it this way - you need a chair. If you buy 2 that are the same, will it be more comfortable to sit if you had both?

These chairs/books are slightly different so you may find more comfortalbe than the other, but again, you wont be able to sit in both at the same time.

Thanks for the immediate reply.. honestly, I thought the same way as you.. I just got both Veritas and MGMAT because I read all your comments and rates (for this purpose, they were really helpful because there are a lot of resources out there.. you really do a great work) about the two curricula and you said they are the best available in the market (except for the power score critical reasoning bible, really amazing), furthermore I read you bought both. Then, as you know both of them very well, what would you recommend for a high score? I would need 700+ for MIT SLOAN.. thank you for all (however, I have the feeling that sometimes there is a lack of content in Veritas prep curriculum; it is terrific from a strategical and managerial standpoint, I think better than MGMAT, but the latter features more "theory and content", and probably less strategy).. either case, I will follow your advice attentively, as you have been in the field so long.

Hi All!!

I have a curious question directly from Manhattan GMAT Foundations of GMAT Math. It says "If integer a is not a multiple of 30, but ab is, what is the smallest possible value of integer b? The official answer is b=2, but is not b=0 the right answer? a could safely be 20, ab 0 and b = 0. 0 is an integer and multiple of all integers. Any suggestions? Thank you!!
