Fifth Ed. - GMAT Roadmap
The GMAT Roadmap guide provides the definitive blueprint for students to follow as they get ready for the GMAT. All the test-taking wisdom gathered over the years by Manhattan GMAT instructors has been distilled into practical advice and helpful tips.
Success of the GMAT requires far more than content knowledge – it requires excellent strategy and proper execution of that strategy. The Guide helps students map out their studying, stick to their game plan, and manage test anxiety on the GMAT itself. It’s like having a Manhattan GMAT instructor at your fingertips!
All of Manhattan Prep’s GMAT Strategy Guides are aligned with both the 2015 Edition and 13th Edition GMAC Official Guide.
