The Official Guide for GMAT Review Set (13th Ed.)
This package includes the 3 Official Guides published by GMAC (the organization that administers the test): The Official Guide for GMAT Review (13th Edition), The Official Guide for GMAT Quantitative Review (2nd Edition), and The Official Guide for GMAT Verbal Review (2nd Edition). These Guides are the primary source of publicly released GMAT questions used on previous official exams. This package is ideal for students who are already comfortable with the concepts tested on the GMAT, but are looking to test their knowledge on real GMAT practice problems. Note there is no overlap in questions between the 3 Official Guides.
The Official Guide for GMAT Review, 13th Edition
The Official Guide to the GMAT, 13th Edition contains official sample questions from the new Integrated Reasoning component being fully integrated into the GMAT test in June 2012. Because this component is more interactive than other core components in the GMAT exam (Verbal, Quantitative, and Analytical Writing), the Integrated Reasoning practice questions are housed on a companion website that readers can access after purchasing the book.
The Verbal Official Guide, 2nd Edition
The Official Guide for GMAT Verbal Review, released on August 17, 2009, contains 300 multiple-choice questions that focus solely on the verbal portion of the exam.
The Quantitative Official Guide, 2nd Edition
The Official Guide for GMAT Quantitative Review, released on September 8, 2009, contains 300 multiple-choice questions that focus exclusively on the quantitative portion of the exam.
How to Study with this Prep Package
All 3 Official Guides contain real GMAT practice problems that have since been retired from the official exam question pool. These problems best match the style and subject type of questions you will encounter on test day, and are highly recommended.
Test Your Knowledge
Use the questions found in these guides as practice for the real exam. The questions found in the Official Guides are indicative of the content that can be found on real GMAT tests. Be sure to time yourself on each question and use a stopwatch to limit yourself to just 2 minutes per question so you get used to the timing demands of the real GMAT.
Be sure to return to these books before you sit for your official GMAT. This will help you re-acquaint yourself with the material and keep it fresh in your mind.
