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.

[Reveal] Spoiler: Old
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 Correction
3   1332   GMAT 800
4   557   Official Guide for Verbal Review
5   494   Official Guide for Quantitative Review
6   427   Kaplan Verbal Workbook
7   360   Kaplan Math Workbook
8   334   Cracking the GMAT by Princeton Review
9   311   Kaplan Premier Program
10  215   Manhattan GMAT CR Book
11  195   Powerscore Critical Reasoning Bible
12  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.

Hi,

No, the $250 fee covers only your taking the GMAT and sending the score reports to 5 schools afterwards. This thread should give you some ideas on the prep strategy: gmat-study-plan-for-gmat-novices-start-your-gmat-journey-80727.html Your study plan will depend greatly on your current standing TheDuke wrote: Hello, I have a personalized question I was wondering if you can help me with: I'm trying to figure out which books/packages would be best for me considering I'm not looking for an extremely high score (so don't need those advanced books/questions), and I have to work within these time contraints (so cannot go thru a ton of material) -Essentially only looking for 580-600 score -Study needs to be done in close to a 4 week period (not working at that time) -Been out of University (B.Comm) for 2 years (taking GMAT in Canada) -I dont anticipate I'm close to a "1 week and 700" club member What would you recommend ? 1) The Official Guide for GMAT Review 12th Edition 2) .... (not sure) 3) .... (not sure) OT Question - Does the GMAT fee of around$250.00 include any books? Or all materials (books) are purchased afterwards (extra).

Thanks!

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

Welcome to GMAT Club!

This particular ranking is based on the number of times users mentioned a certain book here on GMAT Club forum.

You can see this thread for more books:

Good luck with your GMAT preparation!

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.

The MGMAT guides refer to questions in OG and OG verbal/quant review for each topic. Powerscore CR doesnt do that. However, from the reviews I read here and in amazon.com, this book is more recommended than MGMAT CR.
