beatthegmat.com is the closest you will come. But there is not nearly the network and support as there is here. Also less BS's. Probably because it is an older crowd. check it out. I also took the gmat.

Thanks.

I'll be asking this question on both of the suggested forums, but I figure I should ask it here as well: what company produces the best self-study guides? I've heard Manhattan GMAT thrown around by several people, so that's where I'm leaning.

My weakest area is definitely going to be the quantitative sections, so whatever guide(s) most effectively prepares students in this area is probably the best one for me.

My GF and a few of her friends used Manhattan GMAT and were very satisfied with the results.

at a minimum u will need the MGMAT SC guide and the official guide. also highly suggest using hte powerscore gmat CR guide (or the LSAT LR guide).

i used all 8 MGMAT study guides. some of the quant stuff was REALLY easy so i used the gmatclub tests.

I saw GMAT Club was mentioned, so appreciate the kind words, and wanted to chime in.

There are several approaches you can take and several "study plans" so to speak.
The most comprehensive is a 8 MGMAT guides combined with the Official Guide 12th edition. It is very methodical but takes quite a bit of time.

The other approach is taking the best of the MGMAT and other books. MGMAT's star books are:
Math
  • MGMAT Number properties - very strong book covering arithmetic that most don't remember or don't think about. 50%+ of gmat quant questions are covering Arithmetic.
  • MGMAT Word Translations - probability, combinations, and statistics
Verbal
  • MGMAT CR. Powerscore also has as good/better book on CR.
  • MGMAT SC. Powerscore also has a good book on SC
  • MGMAT RC. Powerscore has no RC book

I often recommend that people get their intro to GMAT from a general guidebook such as Kaplan Premier. I personally studied with a combination of Kaplan Premier, Kaplan Math Workbook, and Verbal workbook, but they are not as thorough as MGMAT's materials.

Anyway, if you Google for "Best GMAT Books" - you should find my detailed overview of most worthwhile GMAT books on the market (should be a link to gmatclub in the top 5 results).

Any questions - let me know either in this thread or on gmatclub. Funny that we both use the same forum software - very easy to switch back and forth.
