GMAT Study Guides

Which GMAT Study Guide should I buy

We strongly recommend that you buy at least two books to prepare for the GMAT.

Firstly, you should get an official guide. The book will contain actual questions from prior GMAT exams. There is a significant difference between the official questions you will be asked on the exam and the practice questions contained in all other books. With the official guide you can familiarize yourself with the quality of questions you will encounter on the GMAT.

Secondly, you should consider buying at least one of the "unofficial" guides reviewed below. Knowing the time-proven test-taking strategies would help to improve your score. The better unofficial guides contain many such strategies, as well as explanations and timesaving techniques to answer questions.

You will greatly increase your chances of receiving a higher test score if you prepare yourself with GMAT test-taking strategies and knowledge of actual questions from previous exams.
