The Official Guide for GMAT Review
Official guide of GMAT was sweet. We had a great time. I thought it liked me, but I was wrong: Surprisingly, I enjoyed working on GMAT problems both quantitative and verbal, particularly critical reasoning. I need at least another 6 months preparation for getting a good score.
Very much worth it. The review sections covered ymac necessary for the test and explained things pretty well before they gave you a quiz over it.
The Official Guide for GMAT Review 12th Edition is out on March 23rd, 2009
The book definitely prepared me well and I would buy it again. Nov 02, Sahifa rated it gmqc was amazing Shelves: This is one “go-to” book for all the Gmat preparations one needs. I solved this book and few others by the same publishers and was really impressed by it. This book contains all five sections. There are other books also with specific categorization but this edition covers almost the entire syllabus. There are almost no mistakes and the solutions are explained clearly and comprehensively.
The most important way to prepare for any standardized test is to practice, practice, practice. This book contains a tremendous number of practice questions for all the various types of questions found on the GMAT. The GMAT Review includes a very straightforward explanation of each type of question, as well as some general suggestions on how to approach each type of question. I also used the Kaplan GMAT Premier to study, and found that book to have better explanations of the practice question answe The most important way to prepare for any standardized test is to practice, practice, practice.
I also used the Kaplan GMAT Premier to study, and found that book to have better explanations of the practice question answers. That book also had better test-taking “tips” – it was more prescriptive in its suggestions than the GMAT Review.
Whereas the GMAT Review repeatedly says things like, “Use the best technique for you,” the Kaplan book makes stronger suggestions as to what will work in a test-taking situation.
Overall, I recommend this book – if only for the impressively large number of practice questions. Aug 27, Leonard rated it really liked it. A must have if you plan on taking the GMAT.
Make sure that you buy the Princeton Review or Kaplan Review as well. This book alone will not get the job done. Primarily, I used this book as reference material. In other words, it’s only use for me were the practice questions – which are taken from old tests. The answer explanations – while correct – are not helpful. The same is true for the Verbal section. This is why the Princeton and Kaplan books are a must have. The material is not that difficult but the questions can be counter-intuitive.
On average you’ll only have approximately 2 minutes or less to solve each problem on the GMAT. Haven’t taken the GMAT yet, but I have to review this book because it kind of sucks and it’s frustrating. I have found more than several misprints, and just some weird information in there that just isn’t right. I bought this because I wanted at least a feel for what I am going to be up against when I take the actual GMAT, but I can’t believe how there are misprints and inaccuracies in this book.
How will people be truly prepared, if that’s the case?! The math review is helpful, but there is litt Haven’t taken the GMAT yet, but I have to review this book because it kind of sucks and it’s frustrating. The math review is helpful, but there is little to no advice when it comes to the sections regarding data sufficiency and sentence correction.
One of the tips for sentence correction just tells you to gma Books, newspaper, whatever, because they generally use correct grammar. I use the problems in this book for drill, in tandem with the Princeton Review books for strategies. I think that’s the best way to go. I sure hope the 12th edition has improved on the misprints and whatnot Jul 12, Haneen Alshujairy rated it liked it.
Had to give up on this one, go out and buy the 13th edition. It has basic explanations and lots of practice questions which is revew what I want but since they keep renewing the GMAT exam a couple of weeks later I found out that there is a new section called “integrated reasoning” that was added to the exam, so now it’s one essay question, one integrated reasoning instead of mgat essay questions.
It doesn’t change a lot but I’d gmaf to recommend buying the newer version since the old one only m Had to give up on this one, go out and buy the 13th edition. It doesn’t change a lot but I’d have to recommend buying the newer version since the old one only mentions the essays part. Also, the older version has a couple of errors and typos gmmac I’m hoping I won’t find in the newer one.
A great “practice” guide, with lots and lots of questions and their answers, explained, which are very similar to those you get in the real exam. It also lists briefly some good strategies for each of the GMAT sections.
On the other hand, I don’t believe this can be a great “study” or “prep” guide simply because it lacks tools and techniques on how to improve your score and learn how to do better. For serious GMAT takers, I recommend this book only after getting another source on GMAT preparation A great “practice” guide, with lots and lots of questions and their answers, explained, which are very similar to those you get in the real exam. For those who are fine with a low to moderate GMAT score, this guide is more than enough.
Jul 22, Kim rated it liked it Shelves: This book has testing, but I ended up skipping the “study” section.
Not the best example, but the point is they just basically restated the correct answer as the explanation. But, I think this book is a necessary study material because its written by the test makers. I used the book for my GRE preparation. The verbal section is easier as compared to what you see in GRE exams, so I started with this book to make myself comfortable with the arcane passages coming in for the exams.

Nov 11, Dan Gmzt rated it liked it. So many amazing practice questions! Data sufficiency still sucks though. A structured approach to study GMAT with small chapter to study then many long chapters of questions on various sections with answers detailed to the extent of why each wrong answer is wrong! With few new questions and none for the new section, it’s a weak upgrade. Jul 31, Amiruddin Nagri rated it liked it Recommends it for: Nov 13, Colin is currently reading it.
Jan 21, Kristine rated it liked it Shelves: Basically a book of prior GMAT questions to study and review. Good to use in conjunction with the Princeton Review book.
