GMAT Study Materials
GMAT Study Material 1 - The Official Guide for GMAT Quantitative Review (Paperback)
For the student who has studied well for the GMAT, but feels a need for a last minute jam session, this book is a good weekend's work. Questions tend to be less difficult than those in the orange guide, but they increase in difficulty as you go. As a result, they emphasis on math will be helpful, but the problems not as complex as in the Guide. Written by the test designers, it's likely the closest you will get to sampling real test questions.
GMAT Study Material 2 - Kaplan GMAT Premier Program, 2009 (Book & CD-ROM) [ILLUSTRATED] (Paperback)
The Kaplan book can only be viewed as a good supplement for study of the official guide books. It's a good source of additional practice questions, which every students needs. The math is much too basic, though it has far more test-taking technique than the Guides. However, don't depend on the math solutions for accuracy. The 2009 version of the software might be helpful if you don't need it to be compatible with Windows Vista.
GMAT Study Material 3 - Sentence Correction GMAT Preparation Guide (Manhattan GMAT Preparation Guides) (Paperback)
This is one of seven GMAT preparation books in the Manhattan Preparation Guides. It thoroughly covers grammatical rules and principles, and does a good job of preparing the student for the grammar part of the GMAT. The price of this book is a bit high at $30, but it's well worthwhile for the portion of the test that it covers. As a supplement to the Official Guides, it would be hard to beat this one, with its online references for more information.
GMAT Study Material 4 - The Ultimate Math Refresher for the GRE, GMAT, and SAT (Paperback)
Billed by the publisher as the ultimate math refresher, this one seems to actually live up to its name. It was clearly written, easy to follow, and a thorough refresher, though it lacks detailed explanations and practice questions don't seem what I expected from the GMAT. For those with a good math foundation who have been away from the hallowed halls for awhile, this is as good a way to start as you will find.
GMAT Study Material 5 - Reading Comprehension GMAT Strategy Guide (Manhattan GMAT Preparation Guides) (Paperback)
Like the others in this series of eight, the Reading Comprehension volume is well-organized and presented with clarity. It thoroughly covers its subject and contains passages that have actually appeared on past tests, as well as references to helpful on-line sites. The book offers a few new tips to help you master this difficult area of study. As part of the series, it is expensive (around $150 for the set) but excellent of its kind.
GMAT Study Material 6 - GMAT for Dummies (Paperback)
Okay, dummies don't take GMAT, but what the heck. The Dummies series has a fun format for doing a pretty good job of introducing people to its concepts, and this book is no exception. If you tend to doze off in math class, the humor will help keep you awake, and the material presented is well-organized, easy to read and fairly accurate. I found only a couple of errors. Otherwise, it is a very good study supplement!
GMAT Study Material 7 - Fractions, Decimals, & Percents GMAT Preparation Guide (Manhattan GMAT Preparation Guides) (Paperback)
This is another of the Manhattan series of eight, and presents its material in the same well-structured, readable, effective fashion. It's very thorough, and includes opportunities for on-line practice. There is a nice balance between material study and test-taking techniques. It could be more helpful by moving toward more difficult problems. For anyone who needs a good math refresher before taking the GMAT, this one will offer a solid foundation. Alone, it's reasonable at $26.00.
