    Most irrefutably, think very hard before “enrolling” for either a classroom or an online course. In majority of cases, and for most students, you can often learn a lot more, by utilizing various books, and by using information available in public libraries.

    The official guides still remain one of the best sources to practice real test questions that have been retired from the current pool.

    The practice question in the official guides resemble very closely to what you are likely to see on the real test.

    Hi FireWolf, sorry the delay in replying to your question - you can buy Kaplan or Barrons, both books have something different to offer.

    Tutoring helps too?

    Score,
    Besides reading the Kaplan books and Official Guide, Do you recommend hiring a tutor?

    If you follow the plan I outlined in my original post, I don’t think you’d need a private tutor unless – you happen to be someone who is better able to understand things when someone is teaching you versus learning yourself by reading books, plus you have loads of money to waste. I think most people can get a very good score – just by self discipline and self study.

    I self-studied for the GMAT and scored a 750.


    In my opinion, the Official Guides are absolutely necessary for good GMATpreparation as they have best questions.

    But sometimes, the answer choices are not the best: As a result, I have written shortcut and alternative solutions for some of the questions in the Official Guide 12th Edition book:
    Alternative Solutions for the OG 12the Edition
    I have also written shortcuts for some of the Quant 2nd Edition Book (Green Book). They can be found here. In my opinion, the 2nd Edition Quant Review book problems are not very hard. If you are scoring 80% or above there is really no point in getting this book.

    As far as Verbal: The Official Guide questions and answers are both pretty good. The Verbal Review (Blue Workbook) is not easier like the quant one.

    I just wanted to share with you guys that just last week I received EZ Solutions six new verbal books and the GMAT Official Guide verbal new edition from amazon. It is simply amazing how good they are. They have broken down each section into small parts. I am just beginning to read them but I have not seen such a thing ever. They have all that you would need to ace the test. Even if you know nothing you will learn everything in a systematic manner. You will get be a complete picture of grammar, vocabulary, reading, writing, sentence correction and critical reasoning. EZ Solutions is truly your one stop prep for the GMAT math and verbal.

    I agree with your post about the verbal books.

    I also suggest that you use the Official Guide to get practice with real verbal test questions.
