Which book to consider for the GMAT prep [#permalink]

24 Sep 2010, 02:41
Hi,

I have around 40 days left for GMAT exam and I am reading from these books

1: OG 10
2: OG 12
3: Manhattan SC
4: Princeton review 2009 edition

Do I need any other book. It may sound wierd but I don't have enough money to buy some other book and at the same time I am worried if these books are not sufficient. I have already spent so much money to get these books and register for exam which is beyond my limits.

Please suggest me if these books are not sufficient to touch 700. Your suggestion and help would be highly appreciated.

Your existing material is not sufficient in my opinion, ( but this depends on your current CAT performance). What are your latest CAT scores or have you not tried them yet??

Let us know if we can be of any help. Best of luck!!!

Thanks for yoyr response and assistance.

I haven't tried CAT yet. Where can I attemp it?
Also, please guide me which section is not correctly covered in the above books. I am from Math background and I found OG question quite easier to solve. But I consider myself very weak in SC and RC, as I am not a native english speaker.

Do I need to try more math question or OG reflect the complexity of the real GMAT question?

Which book will be the best for verbal practice? I can grab the used Kaplan book. Is it useful? Should I buy it?

I think you are in an initial stage of your preparation & you need to know all aspects of an effective gmat strategy. Check this link out
gmat-study-plan-for-gmat-novices-start-your-gmat-journey-80727.html

I wonder how will you do in your actual test in 40 days time as you have to tackle RC & CR alongwith advanced Q concepts. Also you have to take & evaluate CATs.

Golden Advice: Take a diagnostic test. You can take one free from MGMAT

Your books should target the questions types in which you are weak.

Check your statistics of the CAT and then select the books accordingly.

I am soon going to update this thread with my CAT and Manhattan test score. Then I'll need your advice how to proceed and which book to consider. I hope I'll get the required help from this forum because I am too much worried now.

We will be waiting for your update. This forum will help you in every bit of capacity to tackle this gmat beast. If you get some low score on your free CAT, dont get disappointed. (I got 470 in my MGMAT free test, a year ago). Who knows a gmat attempt after two months will get you your dream score. This forum has all one thinks of.

Best of luck & keep us posted.

I have appeared for MGMAT and here is my score

Q - 36 and
V - 16.

I didn't updated earlier because I thought that this is not a good score. Even I have no idea what is the highest score I can get in Quant or Verbal. or the complexity level of MGMAT exam. Please let me know whether my quant score is good if I am aming for 620+.

Can someone please give me the list of FREE well recognized GMAT online test on internet, like MGMAT?

I am really depressed with my score.

Sorry to hear about your score. I think you need to work very hard if you want to sit for GMAT as per your schedule date.

You will find some free resources if you google, but dont ever rely on that free stuff.

In order to get a 620 with your current Q score, you need a high verbal score. In my opinion you need to go for a new strategy. Best of luck & keep us posted.
