It’s hard to tell from the photo but the height, literally, of my GMAT study books is approximately 9 inches or 22 centimeters tall.
You may have noticed at the top of the stack I have an old Kaplan book that I purchased in 2007 when I was first considering taking the GMAT. Many people had lukewarm reviews for Kaplan’s materials and I tend to agree with them. Kaplan’s content review sections were slim at best and some of their sample questions were not well written.
The majority of my study materials are Manhattan GMAT books followed by the Official Guide books. This is pretty much what is prescribed when taking their courses. There’s definitely a larger ratio of Math content here, but I feel this is a good balance for me because Math is my weaker subject.
I feel I’m well covered, but what other books / publishers would you recommend for someone looking to get 700+?
