I have the 5th Edition of the MGMAT guides. Is there any significant difference between the two guides in SC or any section that warrants a purchase of the 6th Edition? I read somewhere that the GMAT was moving away from idioms and recently made changes to the exam. Has anyone recently studied with the 5th Edition and performed well in SC? I just don’t want to waste my time running through a potentially obsolete guide.

Thanks in advance.

There is no significant difference between the both, if you have 5th edition of SC you can go with it.

Thanks

Hi TippingPoint93,

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 the latest version of OG and Quant and verbal review for some great additional practice.

Hope this helps. All the best.
