Attention:

Anyone ever posted anything about what sub-topics are out of scope on GMAT? I face this problem since I am preparing from different publication's books, I find topics unique to each book. What do I do about those?

Serious trouble, please help...

Well one sub topic which is out of scope on GMAT is the IDIOMS. you should not at all waste your time studying idioms as they are not being asked in the exam . SO you can take them out of your list :).
+1 Kudo from my side to celebrate the non inclusion of Idioms from your list. Congrats :lol:

You should be comfortable with all aspects of algebra, geometry and basic trig.

Triangles are the most common geometry problems, but in the higher difficulty problem, expect to see embedded question (partial area of a triangle embedded in a circle, etc.).

Don't try to break it down beyond that and study only specific aspects. You should be comfortable with what I have above.
