Hi Guys,

I am reading lot of posts by different applicants and on different websites, each individual have different preferences for quant material and some posts seems me like paid posts. After doing lot of R&D I conclude that Manhattan quant series books(each book for separate topic) and Quant OG will provide me better ground to score in Quant.

Am I in right direction or some one have better suggestion of material please let me know.

P.S.: I am preparing for GMAT by self studying

Thanks :-)

Hi Shashank,

Back in late October, you post implied that you were beginning your GMAT studies. Have you been studying since then or are you starting now? When it comes to studying for the GMAT, there are a variety of different options (and lots of different study resources to choose from). Most Test Takers end up using a mix of materials, so while you can certainly start with any of the books that you're considering, you will almost certainly end up needing additional materials at some point (and some of them will NOT be books).

If 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?

Hi saddu14

You have a lot of time if you plan to give the exam in June
IMO, you should write a mock(which is easily available on
mba.com) and understand what your weak sections are.
Based on the scores in the mock, you could take a call on
how much time to allot to which section.

Please find below a link which has a collection of all the
good books for Quant
https://gmatclub.com/forum/best-gmat-ma ... 35162.html

Alternatively, you could study the concepts here -> Quant MegaThread
and purchase the GMATClub Tests for practice. IMO, there is no
better collection of questions for the Quant Section of the GMAT.

Hope this helps you!

Hi saddu14,

A June Test Date gives you plenty of time to study - which is good. That having been said, we really need an initial CAT Score result to get a sense of your current skills, strengths and weaknesses, so you should plan to take that Exam sometime soon and report back with your results.

Hi saddu14,

Your choice of using MGMAT guides for your preparation is great. MGMAT guides are phenomenal and cover the entire syllabus really well. Just by going through these guides and solving the OG will help you reach 600+. I must add that if you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them. Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have a good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practise tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

Lastly I would also encourage you to purchase the latest version of OG and the Quant review for some great additional practice.

Hope this helps. All the best!
