Hi, I just started preparing for the GMAT and need some inputs on prep material and strategies. I have the Manhattan guides and was thinking about using them for the quant section, and buy E-gmat for the verbal. I have a bachelor in finance, so I would say that my quantitative ability is ok, but just from looking into the quant section I can see that the types of questions are totally different than regular math. I am also a non-native speaker.

Any inputs? I suppose I would need some extra problem sets for quant?

Thanks.

These are few of my recommendations:

You will find this in mba.com(where you need to register for your GMAT)
With that score in your hand, it would be easier to understand how to move

2. Follow Bunuel at the Math Forum(for Quant Section)
His signature contains some awesome questions that give you the true taste of GMAT.
Baker's Dozen, 12 Easy Pieces etc..
Even otherwise, solve each and every question he puts up on the forum.
They will give you all the practice that you can ask for.

3. Since you are only beginning with your preparation,
it makes sense to first clear your concepts for every topic.
Follow that up with some practice(preferably from the OG)
You can find more questions(specific to that topic), here at GMATClub.
The Timer feature will give you a feel of the original test.

Once you are clear with your concepts and need tougher questions :

An additional resource that you must consider are the GMATClub Tests.

You can buy the tests here or redeem these tests for Kudos

Hope that helps!

Agree with the points above. In addition to the strategy guides, Manhattan has an "Advanced Quant" book that is great for 700+ questions. A great way to study is to identify common question types and study up on specific weaknesses.

Hi TheNarsisisst,

Since it sounds like you're just beginning your studies, then it would be a good idea to take a FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Test; you can download 2 for free from www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). If you want to do a little studying first, so that you can familiarize yourself with the basic content and question types, then that's okay - but you shouldn't wait too long to take that initial CAT. That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. A FULL CAT takes about 4 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan.

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) What is your goal score?
2) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
3) When are you planning to apply to Business School?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
