If you are just starting out with GMAT prep - get this bundle; it's a good deal for the Manhattan GMAT Guides (separately they cost close to $150). These books don't emphasize tricks or easy ways to 700+ score, instead they methodically cover areas tested, and should be pretty much all you will need (besides the Official Guides - see below for links). If this is above your budget, then would recommend you pick the best of the pack:
- Number Properties Guide (condensed overview of Arithmetic and strategies for saving time/solving questions more effectively)
- Word Translations Guide (includes some of the hardest topics - probability, combinations, and statistics)
- Sentence Correction (best book out there and closely followed by PowerScore SC)
- Critical Reasoning (only second to PowerScore CR but by a slim margin)
- Reading Comprehension (there are no other dedicated RC books on market really)
Between these 5 books you should have 80-90% of the GMAT covered and the rest could be picked up from the remaining books and practice with the Official Guides. You can throw in a Kaplan Premier as well - a good intro to GMAT book with 6 free GMAT Tets. It is a good starter book to get your feet wet, but definitely not a must.

To make the most use out of the MGMAT guides, you will need the Official Guide 12th and also OG Verbal 2ed and OG Quant 2nd are recommended.

When I first started studying for the GMAT, I had not heard of Manhatten GMAT, though I was impressed with the positive feedback they received on Amazon. Only a few weeks into studying I now understand why they have received such positive feedback. I have tasted their Koolaid and highly recommend using their entire suite of tools for all things GMAT related...

Manhatten has come very close to perfecting the art of studying for the GMAT. Their strategy guides provide the most comprehensive, easy to understand GMAT roadmap on the market. I highly recommend purchasing the entire study guide if you are just beginning your studies, or purchase any of their 8 strategy guides if you need targeted practice in a specific area on the GMAT.

Who should use these guides:
Anyone who is serious about getting a good score on the GMAT AND has the time to invest in getting that great score. Manhatten GMAT's philosophy is to teach students to "do more with more" rather than to "do more with less". This is a great concept for anyone who has the time to invest in learning the test and for those with the desire to score well above average.

Who shouldn't buy these guides:
Those who don't have time to invest and just need a basic understanding of the test. Manhatten really caters to those who are trying to get above a 600 (if not above a 700) on the GMAT. If you are a last minute studier or don't have the desire to ace the test, then I would recommend going with either Kaplan or just the Official Guides provided by the test makers.

Bottom Line:
Manhatten GMAT provides the most comprehensive, in depth coverage of the GMAT. These books, which are accompanied by access to their online practice center (and 6 practice exams), are worth the premium compared to other study material.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only books to use for a 700+ score June 1, 2010
By John B
Format:Paperback
I bought the Kaplan GMAT book and breezed through it and thought I was prepared for the GMAT... Luckily a friend recommended the Manhattan GMAT books to me just in time - they were orders of magnitude better than Kaplan.

These books are much, much more thorough and really break down "typical" GMAT question formats - there will be few if any surprises on the actual test. The Sentence correction strategies were useful, but if you have to cut costs/time, skip the reading comprehension stuff (assuming you're a native english speaker).

Manhattan really shines in the quantitative books - even if you're good with quant and good at taking tests, these questions can be tricky when you're under the gun. The books lay out step-by-step processes for every type of question that makes them very easy to solve.

The online practice tests are also invaluable and did a very accurate job of predicting my actual score (in fact, they were slightly harder than the actual GMAT).

[I scored a 760]

The Manhattan set is highly recommended but the product is not good for people out of school for a number of years and if your background isn't in math. The reviews on GMAT Club and Beat The GMAT come from people with engineer backgrounds or they are very good at math. If your fundamentals are terrible then this set will go over your head. Manhattan assumes you know the basics. After you get your fundamentals down then this set will be useful. Try the Manhattan GMAT Foundations of GMAT math first or another book to get your basics down. The three stars do not reflect the quality of the books but how useful the material was to my studies.
