Hi,

I'm a newbie to the site. I'm looking to start studying for my GMAT. I would like to know which books I need to buy so I can start. Please let me know which ones you found to be the most helpful. It would also be helpful if you list the order of which ones to study first.

Thanks,

First and foremost, get the Official Guide, 11th ed. There's three books, an orange with math and verbal, green with just math and purple with just verbal. They all have real questions from previous GMATs and are made by the same people who made the test so this is essential.

There's lots of recommendations here on the site that you can browse through. Personally, I found the Manhattan Review books to be really helpful since I took their course too and it was good complimentary material. I'm sure there's other helpful guides out there, but the OG is a must.

Definitely OG...I would also add Cracking the GMAT. Best book for strategy, and the tests are great too. It's not a book, but download the free GMATPrep tests from mba.com. They're a must.
