Hi there!
Now I'm studying Gmat by myself. I use Mgmat 5th ed. books set. Is it ok to learn from this book or should I update it latest edition? I mean that new edition covers something new?

Not really anything new in the 6th edition but a few books have been revised and redesigned. The 6th edition was out end of 2014.
5th was out in 2013 or 2012 so it is a bit dated but many people have used it to get a great score.

Here is a bit more about the differences between the editions:

This is my take that i find the older one more descriptive and helpful. I read through the 3rd edition and it worked fine with me . Specifically in GMAT Manhattan is your base creator, and rest of it is on your practise

Good luck

Hi Suhrobbek,

Happy to help. Manhattan GMAT Complete Strategy Guide Set, 6th Edition is the latest version of Strategy guides released by the MGMAT instructors. All the concepts are pretty much the same from the previous versions; however they have broken down and simplified a few concepts by adding some new chapters in each strategy guide. The 3 guides, Sentence correction, Reading comprehension and Number properties guides have gone through some considerable changes in that they have introduced some new strategies and added some new concepts which are very helpful. If you have the previous edition just go for these three guides if you must. Hope this helps. All the best.

No much difference between them, IMO. Make sure to use errata log as there is some corrections made later.

Good luck

IMO MGMAT book has not undergone much change in the 5th and 6th edition. Since u already have 5th edition go ahead with it.
