Hello friends,

After taking the GMAT for the first time last January and not scoring well - 590 Q44;V27 - I decided to take the test again during the Summer. The main books I decided to use were the Official Guides, the Manhattan Books, and Kaplan Premier 2016.

I started studying for the GMAT again last June, and as I was reading the Number Properties Book of the Manhattan set, I was surprised to find that I couldn't recall much of the information I learned before taking my first GMAT exam in January. In fact, reading the Manhattan Books felt like learning everything all over again. Neither could I recall the simple divisibility rules, nor could I recall the not-much-more complicated standard-deviation basics.

For these reasons, I thought that writing a short summary of each of the paragraphs of the five Manhattan Quant Books would help me quickly review the basics in case I didn't get a decent grade in my second attempt and had to re-take the GMAT for the third time.

Each of the PDF documents attached contains a detailed summary of each of the chapters included in the Manhattan Books. Plus, you'll find some of the in-chapter problems that gave me a hard time in addition to all the formulas that you need for the GMAT.

I hope these help you in your journey toward a great GMAT score!

N.B.: By the way, I scored 690 (Q50,V34) in my second attempt and plan on retaking the GMAT for a third (and hopefully last) time. My goal is to keep my Q50 while improving the Verbal score.

Best,
MoulayAbdesslam
