I went to amazon and searched for "Manhattan GMAT" and the list at the above link was the result. Can anyone help me figure out the best one? I scored a 66% on Quant the first time I took the real GMAT.

If you're unwilling to get all of them, figure out what your weakness is and get the corresponding books. If you don't know your weakness, then review your last practice test/exercises.

I did say my weakness is Quant. If you're referring to what my weakness is within Quant, then Data Sufficiency. Even though I know my weaknesses, I'm not sure which books are best for this. The titles don't really tell me that much about what's inside. "Math Solutions Guide" & "Math Study Guide". It appears that Math Study Guide would be more general than Math Solutions Guide. I already have the OG11 and Kaplan800. So many people seem to rave about Manhattan, I think it's worth checking out. I'm also thinking of pushing back the date i retake the GMAT. I was going to take it again June 4th, but I think putting it off another 2 weeks would be better.

Jallen, you're gonna have to dig deeper than that. Sure data sufficiency is a weakness, however, in GMAT, quant is made out of the following sub categories :
Geometry
Algebra
Fractions and Decimals
Rate and speed problems
Number properties
Statistics
Overlapping sets
Combinatorics
Probabilities

You'll need to assess which of the topics gives you most problems and then work on the fundamentals of those topics. DS and PS are just a method of testing your knowledge within the above categories.

Manhattan GMAT does a pretty good job by addressing these topics individually.
