Along with having some top GMAT test prep books, you should have a solid GMAT study plan.

Use the Official Guide for GMAT when taking GMAT practice tests. These 3 Official GMAT books contain over 1,500 practice test questions.


  1. i need to score 450 in gmat as this is the official requirement for my ms-is program.

    can you please tell me whether these books will be enough? i’m yet to buy them.

    1 ) everything verbal ( rc / sc / cr / essays ) and strategies / shortcuts – princeton

    2 ) maths / ds / graphs – barron

    3 ) practice tests – gmac official guide

    i’ve heard that kaplan is not worthwhile for studying purpose as there are no tricks discussed and all the maths problems are done using step-by-step approach. also, the difficulty of practice tests is a little less than the gmac official guide, so is it still wise to buy the kaplan just for the sake of practice?

    do i need to buy all the three official guides ie official guide for gmat review, official guide for gmat verbal review, and official guide for gmat quantitative review – or the first one compensates for second and third?

    and which set should i read just before gmat – ONLY the official guides OR ( princeton + barron )

    regarding toefl; which book should i read just before the toefl – barron, kaplan, or ets?

    thanks in advance.
