All other resources seem to get mixed reviews.

agree with vlad - check out the various debriefs of the resources that top scorers used.

i have the kaplan premier and kaplan 800 books. in my opinion, kaplan, along with princeton review, is good for earlier stages of studying when you want to get into some questions and just get used to writing GMAT style questions. however, since the questions are written in a style that vary in consistency with the gmat, i would spend less time on kaplan later in your study period, and ramp up on official guide questions.

also, the kaplan CD CAT scoring is a bit skewed from the actual algorithm, so ppl usually score 50 points lower on kaplan CAT's which can be discouraging to some.

So far I have Cracking the GMAT and PR's Verbal Workbook, and am going to download GMATPrep. Haven't gotten OG yet, but hear that's a must.
