Hi everybody,
I am newbie to this forum and I found this forum very encouraging. I plan to take my GMAT sometime next year but I would like to start my preparation from now. I have one year experience as a software engineer and I am very much interested to move onto the management side. It would be great if anybody can guide me as to what books I should start off as a beginner and also advice me what practice tests I should take etc. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Cece

I highly recommend starting off with Cracking the GMAT, from Princeton Review. It has the best overall review of the test and very good strategies. It also comes with 4 practice tests on CD, and another one online. The tests are great because they have answer explanations -- be sure to review those, even for the ones you get right.

The other musts are the official materials -- 11th edition Official Guide (it has a TON of practice questions, but no strategy), and the GMATPrep downloadable tests (go to http://www.mba.com). The GMATPrep tests are free.

Start there, and come here for the Challenges! Lots of good stuff here.

2 must haves:

1. OG 11th Edition
2. Manhattan Gmat

You can disregard the rest unless you need more practice.
