Hi GMATclub fellows,

I am planning to take GMAT in 3 months. two sets of books I am interested in are Manhattan prep and OG.
As I talked to my friend who has taken GMAT before (Back in 2017). She is willing to let me borrow her Manhattan prep and OG book version 2017.
I would like to know if the questions or anything has changed much in version 17 vs 19. Is version 2017 still a viable option?

Have a nice day :)
Regards,
Best

Should be no issue. The number of questions in the quant/verbal sections has changed but for 95% of your studying (actual content), you’ll be studying the correct content.

I would say that SC book has slightly been changed and I like the latter version much more because it is better organized and makes better examples.

Hi BestWich,

The content and question types that are tested on the GMAT have not really changed over the last several years, so using some slightly older books should not cause you any big issues. That having been said, there might be some references in those older books that are no longer accurate (the GMAT was shortened in 2018, so there are fewer Quant and Verbal questions on it than there were in 2017).

Since it sounds like you're just beginning your studies, then it would be a good idea to take a FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Test; you can take 2 for free at www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). If you want to do a little studying first, so that you can familiarize yourself with the basic content and question types, then that's okay - but you shouldn't wait too long to take that initial CAT. That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. A FULL CAT takes about 3.5 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan.

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) What is your goal score?
2) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
3) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

Hi BestWich,

The 2017 version will work fine for you. That said, since you are just starting out with your prep, have you taken a diagnostic to get a baseline score? What is your score goal?

Also, you may find it helpful to read this article: How to Score a 700+ on the GMAT — A Mini Guide for Success.

Feel free to reach out with further questions. Good luck!

Hi BestWich,

The latest sixth edition was published on December 2, 2014:
https://www.amazon.com/Complete-Strateg ... oks&sr=1-3

As mentioned above, you don't need a new OG edition. The new OG 2018 questions are highlighted in the thread:
https://gmatclub.com/forum/the-official ... 42995.html


Hope this helps!
So, your friend is likely to have the latest edition.

Each new OG edition replaces some old questions with new ones. So, you can
