BOOKMARKED
Hello guys, below is a list of which I have studied or will study before my GMAT, is there anything essential which I have missed for my GMAT? Even if you think some books are not that "essential", it would also be useful if you could point me a direction to look at. (I know there is a book list on this forum but I aware some of the books may pretty much cover the others. )

I am aiming for 730+ but anything above 700 is actually acceptable for me.

ANY comments would be really appreciated! I will give Kudos to any positive input!

ALL the BEST to all of you!

Gordon.

Hello, I put a lot of details on this post and giving out kudos just because I really want to know the answer. I understand there is a lot of information on this forum but it's too much. I really hope someone could direct me specifically for my case.

Just leave anything, a word, a link, anything will do.

How much you will score depends on your foundation level, current practice score range, and time in hand for GMAT.
You need to provide your practice test score - if you haven't taken already, you need to take one asap and find out your strengths-weaknesses.

The material you have listed is enough, if you follow them religiously and keep yourself focussed to your target score.
Powerscore CR bible is the one missing in the list. Refer that, if you need improvement in CRs.

For practice questions, we recommend the online Practice Pill Platform: http://www.gmatpill.com/gmat-practice-test/

For OG video solutions: http://www.gmatpill.com/official-guide

Remember, the key is to learn from your mistakes. Know how to spot the booby traps and little things that can save you time. GMAT is a marathon so train for it by building mental stamina.

These materials are used by people who score 760 and by those who score 660. Having said that if you truly master these books and have either strong quant and or verbal skills breaking 700 should be quite possible.

Hi there,

Your study strategy will depend on where you are now and how much you wish to improve. A 650 to a 700+ is totally doable. However if you're starting at a 500 or below, I'd have different advice for you and recommend you start with the basics, which would probably be the Official Guide books.

Regards,

Elizabeth
