Item came new and clean, as well.

Note that questions in this book are on average somewhat easier than ones found in The Official Guide for GMAT Review, 12th Edition.

Use this as a good backup with Manhattan Prep books to get a high score.

Format: Paperback
Note that questions in this book are on average somewhat easier than ones found in The Official Guide for GMAT Review, 12th Edition. If you are looking for 700+ Verbal practice - look elsewhere.

BUY THIS BOOK IF:
1. You are studying using Manhattan GMAT books (there are only a few practice questions in the books and for additional practice,they refer to questions in the OG 12 and this book)
2. You need more practice with average and low difficulty verbal questions

DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK IF:
- You have OG 10 (there is quite a bit of overlap)
- You have used or were planning to use power prep (previous version of the GMAT prep software has quite a bit of overlap too)
- You have purchased paper GMAT tests from GMAC (overlap again)
- You have not gone through OG 12 yet

Yes, this book is a cheap source of Real retired GMAT questions; (first being the Free GMATPrep software, second, The Official Guide), but the questions are easy and quite a bit dated. Bet the Main Official Guide first, go through 900 questions, and then decided if you really need more questions - most people don't. Also, it's not practicing thousands of questions that get your high score, rather it is a strong knowledge of basics, strategies, and control of the test.

In terms of difference between 1st and 2nd editions - there are 75 new questions and it seems all sections got a bit of a refresh, so you will find about 25 new questions in CR, RC, and SC sections. No other changes have been made. If you own the first edition of this book - don't bother.

If you're new to the GMAT and you're trying to figure out what book to purchase, the GMAT Verbal Review is absolutely indispensable. The first three books you should purchase are the Official Guide (preferably the 12th edition), and the official GMAT quant and verbal reviews. The GMAT is a bizarrely nuanced test, and it's tough for even the best test-prep companies to mimic the style of the actual test. Other books can definitely be useful, but you'll want to start with the official guides.

The bad news is that the 2nd edition doesn't really break much new ground. There are 82 new questions in this edition (31 RC, 23 CR, 28 SC--some weirdo at a website called GMAT Ninja counted all of them), and they aren't all that dissimilar to the ones they replaced. It's arguably worthwhile to pay $13 for 82 "real" GMAT questions, but only if you really feel like you need all the help you can get. Otherwise, you'll be fine with the 1st edition if you already have it, especially if you're pretty confident on the verbal section.

My math skills are far superior to my verbal skills so I bought this book to try to improve my verbal score. SOMEHOW I scored Higher on the verbal than on the math and I did awesome in both parts so these official guides REALLY work.

I read this book front to back and did every single problem and I passed the GMATs the first time. Well, you don't really pass or fail you just get a grade, but I felt like it was a high enough grade to apply to business school and I got accepted after my very first application. This is essential and was so helpful and gave me enough confidence to take the test. BUY THIS.

I bought this book and used it in conjunction with the official guide quantitative book and the Manhattan GMAT series books and felt extremely well prepared and confident entering the GMAT and left with a 740 (50 Q, 40 V). Strongly recommend this book to anyone looking to take the test

I consider this guide to be a wonderful for better preparation after GMAT Offical Guide.
The book contains enough additional questions of different difficulty with good explanation.

In comparison with Manhattan Review Turbocharge Your GMAT: Verbal Study Guide - the last doesn't contain answers. Therefore if you would like to have much more questions to practice GMAT with only one book, I recommend to buy GMAT Verbal Review.
