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

Manhattan GMAT strategy or Prep??????????????? [#permalink]

### Show Tags

13 Feb 2011, 08:30
I am confused about difference between Manhattan GMAT Prep guides and strategy guides. The 5th and 6th rankings at this forum ( top-20-best-gmat-books-on-gmat-club-76582.html ) consist "8 Manhattan GMAT guides" and "Manhattan GMAT Sentence Correction". Are they stand for Prep guides or Strategy guides?
What is the difference between prep and strategy?
Which one would be better to buy?

I believe this has been answered here: manhattan-gmat-strategy-or-prep-109272.html

Let me know if any other questions.

I'm colourblind. So, it all looks the same to me

I know I represent a minority group, but instead of using colours, it would be cool if you could use a symbol.

e.g ˄ Manhattan Sentence Correction [Up]
˅ Official Guide [Down] {No offense, official guide}

:D

Is there any sequence of approaching the MGMAT strat/ prep guides, I have started with guide 3 on eqns, inequalities and VICs, chapter 6 on inequalities is killing me! I cannot memorize rules, always thought math is more intutive , anyways need some guidance from ppl who smoothly glided thru the MGMAT strat guides in their gmat battle, personally I just want to give up, mgmat strat guides are real draining!

Thanks entwistle, basically all last 15 problems out of 30 in the chapter 6 exercise came out wrong; may be becoz for this chapter I got lazy and didn't take any notes, I will try to send a PM later outlining my exact goof-ups.. Little background: I am not good at quant basics: gave gmat prep1 10days ago and got a 45 in quant with 15 problems wrong!

@ BB

Thank you for the reply; it really saved my money and time. Thanks a ton!

Have you reviewed the book "The MBA Reality Check: Make the School You Want, Want You"? I think it's a hidden jewel. It has got 5 out of 5 in the Amazon.com reviews (11 reviews).
