Does anyone have any tips on how to use the Manhattan books? I have all seven of them - and I know Rhyme used them in his success getting over 700.

My main concern is that you read the book, then do the problems, and like Rhyme said - the lesson is fresh in your mins so it is easy to get questions right. How do you ensure you are soaking in all the information?

Also - Rhyme - do you have a copy of the excel sheets you used to break down the problems into specific sets? I would like to use them in my studies....

Well, I always try to write a short sum-up. For example after finishing MGMAT SC, I have created a summary of the most important chapters and used exactly the same examples as MGMAT uses. Now when I look into this paper, the example reminds me of the rule.

Everything I have is in my original inspirational thread -

http://www.gmatclub.com/phpbb/viewtopic ... c&start=20

See the last post on page 2.

In the end, I ended up doing the OG twice.

Once, with the manhattan books, chapter by chapter, following hte question lists in the back. The problem with this was short term memory.

So..... after I had finished a book, I'd force myself to go back through it chapter by chapter - faster this time of course, but every time I found anything important (i.e. the sum of any two sides > the third) I'd write it down in Microsoft Word. Two reasons - ONE, at the end of the process I've got a 2 or 3 pager that covers the book at a high level for when I want to review, and TWO, by forcing yourself to slow down and RE-WRITE what you read in your own words, you absord far more. Difference between passive and active reading.

Then, I just re-did the OG. Started on problem 1, and just did problems, problems, problems... every one I got wrong I forced myself to understand - there were some I never fully understood - but I'd give them serious attempts - not a minute or two late in the day when you dont feel like reviewing the hardest problems - but in big chunks.
