Hi everyone,

I am planning on taking the GMAT soon and decided to purchase the MGMAT package and the three officials GMAT books to study. It will be my first time doing the GMAT and I was wondering if it was necessary to go over the advanced sections in the MGMAT curriculum. I understand that these parts give an interesting insight into more complex issues, however, I am not sure whether I should delve into these issues or if I should simply master the general concepts. I am not aiming at a 700+ score either. Anything with 580+ would be satisfying for a first try. So do you guys think I should go over the advanced parts ? Or just focus on the first part of each book to master the basics ?

Thank you

Hi, what if you go through both the sections?? I mean if I were you, I would be doing both general & advanced sections. Advanced section would not take much time and ultimately you would not lose anything.

I suggest you try and do the beat you can. If you feel comfortable with the advance material then by all means do them.

I personally wouldn't have the attitude of looking to take the test more than once. A little bit defeatist!

Six of the 8 Manhattan GMAT Strategy Guides (all the math books, as well as Sentence Correction) have a division between Part 1 (General) and Part II (Advanced)

We suggest that you master the content covered in the General material before moving to Advanced material. That is, make sure you're completely comfortable with with the General reading, the General In Action problems, and the General OG problems (at least the Benchmark problems) before moving to the Advanced reading, In Actions and OG problems.

It's important to first build a solid foundation in all eight subjects by mastering the General material before focusing on any Advanced work.

I hope this helps! Good luck with your GMAT studies.

Best,

If you have enough time to cover the material, in my opinion, I think you should cover all of the material. I bought the set yesterday and I plan on doing my gmat 3.5 months from now for the first time. Also, why depend on your second test score if you have the opportunity to do well your first time?

I am not depending on my second score actually. I might not have expressed myself correctly in the first post. By 'for a first try' I meant that many people sometime get a lower score on their first try than on their second try. But I am definitely aiming at getting the highest possible score.

In that case I think you have to go above and beyond those advanced topics. I think that is just a starter. I am saying this because I started studying for gmat and bought MGMAT books yesterday. I went through the first five chapters of number properties in 1.5 hours and I am trying some questions now in the 700+ level and clearly I need more concept building and more practice so I am treating the MGMAT books as a starter.

I hope this helps. I am going through the same thing as you are..uncertain of what books to cover to achieve the highest score we possibly can.
