Hi there,

I'm writing my GMAT in May 2012, so before the Integrated Reasoning section is implemented. For the Official Guide, should I buy the 12th edition or the 13th edition? If I buy the 13th edition, should I just ignore the IR section completely?

Thank you!

sfeng,

the IR session (50 practice questions) is merely an online addendum to the regular content of the OGs. Even with a 80-85% overlap, you still better go with the 13th edition. You are gonna have the same number of questions but you will be able to practice with this 15-20% of recently retired questions.

Great, thank you!

So essentially I can just ignore the IR questions.

I'd agree...go with OG 13 all else being equal.
