Hi guys, I am preparing to give my GMAT in May 2018, but I am preparing from Manhattan GMAT Strategy guides Fifth edition which was released in April 2012. Is it ok to study from these guides or has the syllabus or GMAT exam format drastically changed from 2012 onwards ? Any help on this will be much appreciated. Thank you so much :)

Hi
There is not much changes in MGMAT guides in the Fifth and the Sixth Edition.
In my opinion, it is OK to study from 5th edition.

Hello

Don't worry about that there is no considerable change in the both they are Different in MGAMT Logo, Text Style and number of Pages but test material and Manhattan's Concept Building philosophy is the same just carry on with 5th edition

Good Luck

Hi rohitsood43,

Most Test Takers use a variety of study materials as they prepare for the GMAT. While there's likely no 'harm' in using slightly older books, you will likely end up needing MORE than just those materials to hit your Goal Score. Before I can offer you any additional advice, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?

Goals:
3) What is your goal score?
4) What is your exact Test Date?
5) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
6) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Hi rohitsood43,

With each edition the guides have only gotten better. Yes there have been some drastic changes especially in the Sentence Correction, Reading comprehension and Number Properties guides in that they have introduced some new strategies and added some new concepts which are very helpful. If you are on a budget, you can purchase the aforementioned guides. If, however, you do not mind spending, go with the new guides and you will not be disappointed. Plus you will get access to all 6 MGMAT tests and online question bank with each guide, which is great. To complement your guides, I would also encourage you to purchase the latest version of OG and Quant and verbal review for some great additional practice.

Hope this helps. All the best.

Hi All,

I have the PDF of Manhattan guides 4th edition an the hard copies of 6th edition. There is a lot of change in math guides as i the content seems more in old editions with more questions on Advanced topics. Which is advisable to follow as I need to score Quant more than 49

Please help!

Hi rohitsood43,

As many have mentioned, you should not have any problems using a book from 2012. Are you just starting out with your GMAT prep? What is your score goal? Have you taken a practice exam to get a baseline score?

You may find it helpful to read this article about how to score a 700+ on the GMAT.
