Since we are unaware of where you stand currently in terms of scores on the GMAT, what I can share with you is the general stuff I get from everyone.

So, Generally, refer the OG. The latest 2018 OG is here, if you are yet to get one, get the new one. If you already have the older 2017 or 2016 versions, there isn't much difference in the print version, so make sure you use the OG to the fullest. This is followed by the Quant and Verbal reviews from GMAC.

Next, you can use the Manhattan Prep GMAT strategy guides which will help with strategies, which can be followed / supplemented by their fundamentals of quant/verbal books and the advanced quant books. The Advanced quant book by Manhattan prep is for once you reach a Q47 score which will help you to get to Q50/51.

You can also make use of this platform by searching for 700 level questions, which you will find a lot of on the platform. Apart from this, you can also buy extra question packs from mba website.

Hope this helps, this is what I know so far. Do let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Hi Aditya

Manhattan booklets are good place to develop good concepts for answering 700+ questions , but keep your focus on questions mostly in OG, as they most correctly match standards with questions in GMAT.

PS: I'm not an expert, but a soldier in same pursuit.

All the best, brother

Hi abeenav

For AWA, it would be helpful to refer to https://gmatclub.com/forum/how-to-get-6-0-awa-my-guide-64327.html and practice 5-6 essays.
For IR, refer manhattan material to see the format of different IR question types tested and practice from OG.

Best,
Puneet

Hi AdityaHongunti,

Since you haven't provided any information on your current studies, there's a pretty good chance that what you're asking for is not actually what you 'need.' Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,

Hello. My apologies for providing incomplete information. I've been studying for 2 months now. My latest test score is 630 . And I wanna secure 730+. My weaknesses are the 700+ level questions. I'm done with 2 OG's 2016 and 2017. I need a book specifically for 700+ level questions and with satisfactory explanation. Please help me out here.

Hi AdityaHongunti,

If you're currently 'stuck' in the low-600s on your CATs, then focusing on "700+ level" question is NOT what you need to be focused on right now. You didn't answer all of my prior questions, but based on our Score Goal, you will likely need at least another 2 months of consistent, guided study to get to that level. Before I can offer the specific advice that will help you to achieve that goal, I'll still need answer to the following questions:

1) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?
2) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
3) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

Hi

For Explanations you should better use GMAT Club because each question contains many explanations by different members
for Practice questions OG and OG Verbal review is best sources
for Concept Learning of RC, use Manhattan RC guide

Hi Aditya,

OG is certainly not a guide you one should dive into directly. You should dedicate around 3 months to achieve your dream score. If you are willing to study dedicatedly for four months, you are sure to achieve your goal. E-gmat is a great course to help you improve your score.

You can also try out the MGMAT guides they are phenomenal and cover the entire syllabus really well. I must add that if you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in Quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practise tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

I would also encourage you practice all the questions twice from the latest version of OG and the verbal review. Here is a link that will help you with your decision.
https://gmatclub.com/forum/best-gmat-ve ... 68383.html

Lastly, you can check out a very interesting article by Mike McGarry from Magoosh detailing a 3 month study plan

https://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/3-month-g ... -students/. You will find it very helpful as it gives out a study plan as per your needs.

Hope this helps. All the best.

If you're talking about SC: there are exceptions, but the explanations in the OG can be very useful. Don't dismiss them completely.
