Reading Comprehension is one of the most difficult areas to improve in a short time for the GMAT. If you are not getting good scores in this section and if you've not been a life long reader, then it is not easy to improve your score - it will take hard work and a lot of practice, and probably the Manhattan GMAT RC guide.

This book is definitely one of the best out there for this section. The book offers some radically new tricks and tips to better attack this section (I ended up using a few of them and they were very helpful) and it also has a bunch of practice passages apart from pointers to practice passages from the Official Guide.

I will be reviewing other ManhattanGMAT Prep books individually but here's what I have to say about the entire series - buy them all, it will cost you less than 150 dollars and believe me, it will be money well spent (I scored 760 on my GMAT last month).

I wouldn't take the gmat without comprehensively reviewing all the workbooks and online material for manhattan GMAT. They are simply the best books and most directly relevant books to studying. They don't care about teaching you material, but teaching exactly what you need to know for the GMAT, and nothing more!

If you get this book, you should also get access to the online material. I would highly suggest you do all the material and time yourself. There are 6 practice tests that in my opinion are the best in the market. I would do the pearson/GMAC provided test once in the beginning to see where you stand. Then take on practice test from Manhattan GMAT per weekend. Treat it like a real test! Then carefully go over all your answers and mistakes. Even go over the ones you got right!

During the week, I would focus on going through the workbooks and other online exercises.

It is a major commitment but it was worth it...I got a 740

If you read this book from front to back and do all of the examples, it WILL raise your verbal score. I ended up ranking in the 92nd percentile for verbal, which is usually my weaker subject. I did not take the course in addition to using this book - so my comment is really just on this specific product/book. Hope this helps!

This and all the other Manhattan GMAT guides were really helpful in helping me prep for the GMAT. My colleagues had recommended them over other guides and I continue to do the same after getting the score I needed on my first try.

Format: Paperback
This is a strange topic to write a whole book about but the GMAT prep team from Manhattan has included some solid topics on this difficult subject matter. RC is tough to teach since it's really dependent on the reader's skills and time they spend reading for comprehension. This book is limited because it really does focus on a few case study stories to analyze and dives down deep. Not a ton of tips but a focus a few examples to "over analyze". So, I don't think this is a easy subject to really teach but this book is a certain asset.

Not much to be taken away from this book. Book suggests no concrete plan to proceed from. I do not recommend.
