Hi, I have the MGMAT complete package with online access, the Veritas on-demand course, the Powerscore Critical Reasoning book, the Nova Math book, and the EZ Solutions Math book. I am planning to take the GMAT in the beginning-mid December, and would appreciate any help that you can give on a how I can use these materials most efficiently. Also, I am going away for 5 weeks (until mid-October) and would NOT like to take a complete book set with me. I was actually thinking about doing the fondations math book before I leave and then taking the Nova math book with me to complete over those 5 weeks. When I come home, I will work through the MGMAT and Veritas books, and then I will spend the last week or two doing practice CATs (I have access to 21). Does this sound like a good plan to achieve a high GMAT?

About me, I typically don't study for standardized tests and score above the 90%- I am hoping that with some studying I can get above the 95%.

Thanks in advance!

Hi and welcome to GMAT Club.
I don't think you need so many books - getting a MGMAT set or Veritas set should work just fine.

If you have them all that's good. I'd start with MGMAT Math Foundations or if you have issues with math, whatever area you feel most comfortable at.

HI Lilli,
welcome to the Gmat club.I liked the way u said i already have everything what to do know :)

Well as bb said Veritas prep is suffice for ur study,but u can divide ur study in bit parts if u like.
Like u have powerscore CR bible i will say try to grasp the concepts from Veritas first if u find any trouble u can switch to CR Bible which is the best for CR or you can study the CR bible first and attempt questions provided in veritas course..
Likewise For nova Book i will say its not that much used by people for GMAT.You can read the review provided by BB on amazon.com for this book.it will tell u exactly which portion of the book are good and which are not worth..
i will say u shud start with on demand and when u find trouble with the concepts of Veritas try looking for the same in ur other books. that can help u....

Thanx
sandy

Thanks for your suggestions. I still have the issue of my trip abroad. I think I will do Nova while I am away then come back and do Veritas, as suggested. I just don't find it feasible to carry 20 #s of books with me. Thanks!

Lilli, as others have suggested Nova isn't really known much in the realm of GMAT Preparation. What I'd advise is to first identify two or three key areas of weakness. Perhaps things you know you are weak in - whether it's Quant or Verbal and so on, and just take two or three of the Veritas books with you when you go. They are all pretty thin and should not take much space. Since you said it was a 5 week vacation, and we don't know how much you're willing to study in that time, you should give due consideration and take something that'll definitely help you - it IS a long period of time :)

The Powerscore CR strategy is excellent too, btw. The Veritas books, from what I've looked through, look really good :)

Good luck!

Lilli,

Stay away from NOVA. I checked out their book, their problems aren't that representative of GMAT problems.

Thanks,
Dawg

Thanks everyone- you have been wuite helpful. I think I will do as whiplash suggested and just take a few individual books. I actually discovered that I have until the beginning of January to take the test so I am less concerned about my 5 weeks away, BUT I am still definitely going to study.
