I am really surprised Veritas does not feature much. I just watched a few of their videos on their youtube channel before entering this thread and thought they would feature quite prominently as I was impressed. I guess I have to check out Manhattan first then compare.

Good observation and point. I think there may be a few reasons:
1. For a long time they have only offered courses and did not offer books like MGMAT Did
2. They did offer their books a few years ago (3-4) but their cost was \$300 vs. \$150 for MGMAT so I think more people went with MGMAT
3. Veritas also stepped up the game and redid a lot of their curriculum, books, etc in the last few years, so their stuff is really good, but there is a lag in terms of folks knowing that, reporting on that, and that being the generally accepted information of at least 2-4 years.....

that's my 2 cents why they are not showing up.

Oh right yeh, that makes sense. Seems like they went back to the drawing board and just basically refined the whole thing. I see you scored a 750 congrats, what did you personally use or would recommend for Quant, Verbal and Tests?

I have been around for a while, and when I prepped there was no Veritas Prep or MGMAT - they came after that... so I have used Kaplan books, which proves you can achieve the same goal through different paths, some just make it easier and others are a bit tougher.

You have probably seen my post here about my suggestion for study materials these days: gmat-study-plan-for-gmat-novices-start-your-gmat-journey-80727.html

Can someone please share Amazon links to MGMAT Quant guides. I just want to be sure I am purchasing the right materials. Also, what's the difference between the below-mentioned guides?

Thank you so much for this. This compiled data is such a huge help for me in deciding the materials and strategy to use. It also validates some parts of the strategy I use now
