This post was BOOKMARKED
This is GMAT Club's Most Popular 20 GMAT Books Please also see this recommendation: Best GMAT Books Did you ever wonder which GMAT Books are most popular? We did! We looked at our forum and counted the number of times each of the GMAT prep books has been mentioned by our members and created a popularity ranking.Not sure about you, but I was surprised a little to see the books that made it to the top. On the other hand, the search results included all references starting with 2003, so potentially popularity of some books is inflated as others were not yet available back then. But again, at the end of March we will release the updated ranking that will reflect only results for March. I am not sure how to best post tables in the forum, so here is one version and also another version with links at the bottom: Code: # References GMAT Club's Top 20 GMAT Books 1 2985 The Official Guide for GMAT Review 2 1667 Manhattan GMAT Sentence Correction3 1332 GMAT 8004 557 Official Guide for Verbal Review 5 494 Official Guide for Quantitative Review 6 427 Kaplan Verbal Workbook7 360 Kaplan Math Workbook8 334 Cracking the GMAT by Princeton Review 9 311 Kaplan Premier Program 10 215 Manhattan GMAT CR Book 11 195 Powerscore Critical Reasoning Bible12 79 Manhattan GMAT Number Properties Guide 13 73 Project GMAT Advanced Math 14 71 Manhattan GMAT Word Translations Guide 15 57 Powerscore Sentence Correction 16 45 GMAT for Dummies 17 36 Manhattan GMAT Geometry Guide 18 6 Manhattan GMAT Fractions, Decimals, and Percents Guide 19 4 Manhattan GMAT Equations Inequalities and Vics Guide 20 4 The Ultimate Math Refresher for the GRE, GMAT, and SAT Also, let me know if there other notable books we should include into our ranking and we will keep track of those as well.

Is the MGMAT Bundle with the three official guides, their own 8 guides, the practice papers and question bank good? Will it be worth the $250? I have gone through the threads and except for the last post here, all the others seem to rank the books separately. But as a combined package of books from any given source, what do you think the best GMAT preparation books are?

Looks like a few books doing well including MGMAT Math Foundatiosn and MGMAT RC; a bit surprised Kaplan 800 is on the rise (not a bad book but it gets bashed a lot). Also looks like Kaplan Verbal Foundations are back on the map. Interesting month

Hi all, This is my first post in gmat club..quite amazed by the number of people on this forum..im looking to take up the gmat in april 2011..with regards to the books mentioned above..i just have some doubts here..on some other forum i came across the Powerscore CR bible as the best option over other Verbal related books..but here the ranking seems to different..is it because people havnt been able to get thier hands on Powerscore or is it because of something else?

For CR, PowerScore CR is the best (close second is the MGMAT CR) and Veritas also has a good CR book now too. So, yes PowerScore CR is the best but it does not compare to the OG 12.
