Hi everyone!

See, in this moment I'm studying with Manhattan's books "Foundations of GMAT Math" in order to refresh my math knowledge and some days later I wanted to continue with others Manhattan´s guides. But someone has gifted to me the pdf version of "The Official Guide for GMAT 2019".

As an old-fashioned guy I prefered printed books and I was wondering which ones could be convenient for me in this moment. Should I print first the Manhattan's guides and when I achieved a plenty knowledge about GMAT go for the "Official Guide"?

Thanks for your comments!

The Official Guide is great for practice questions but you can focus on it after completing a test prep curriculum, whichever that may be.

Most test takers need to go through the basics from a detailed curriculum first. After that, practicing questions from OG is more useful. Also, you should look for alternative solutions online and not depend only on OG solutions. We have awesome free video solutions to many OG problems here: https://www.veritasprep.com/gmat-solution-station/

Hi Mozart721,

Official Guides are good for practicing questions. But, to make the practice effective, you need to learn the concepts and their application first. So, after you have learnt the topics that GMAT tests you can apply the learnings on official questions to improve further.

Hope this helps you decide which resource to use when.

Regards,
Zinnia

Hi Mozart721,

In your previous post, you mentioned that you scored 320 on your first practice exam, so you really need to learn GMAT quant and verbal from the ground up, right? That said, my students tend to find that prep books are most beneficial when paired with a more robust resource, such as an online self-study course. I realize that you may be old-fashioned, but you still may find it beneficial to use a self-study course. So, spend some time reading through GMAT Club reviews of prep resources as well as some experiences of past students to see what has worked well for other test-takers.

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