About the ManhattanGMAT Strategy Guides

The ManhattanGMAT Strategy Guides offer students a unique balance between two competing emphases: test-taking strategies and in-depth content understanding. Most prep courses focus on the strategic portion of the GMAT - timing, shortcuts, etc. However, we believe that unless a student has a solid understanding of the content, the tricks won't be of any use. Therefore, we include practice problem sets that build specific foundational skills in each topic as well as advanced content that many other prep books ignore.

About the Author

Manhattan GMAT's 8 preparation guides were developed by Manhattan GMAT's talented staff of real teachers, all of whom have scored in the 99th percentile on the official GMAT. As the company focuses solely on the GMAT (no other tests), it continually updates the guides to reflect the GMAT's most current trends. ManhattanGMAT's guides offer students a unique balance between two competing emphases: test-taking strategies and in-depth content understanding. Most prep courses focus on the strategic portion of the GMAT - timing, shortcuts, etc. However, we believe that unless a student has a solid understanding of the content, the tricks won't be of any use. Therefore, we include practice problem sets that build specific foundational skills in each topic as well as advanced content that many other prep books ignore.

The nation's largest GMAT-exclusive preparation provider, Manhattan GMAT was founded by Zeke Vanderhoek. A Yale graduate, Zeke taught as a member of Teach for America at New York City public junior-high school, earned a Masters in Philosophy & Education from Columbia University's Teachers College, and supplemented his day-job by tutoring individuals in various subjects at all educational levels. Word-of-mouth referrals soon brought in a remarkably high number of GMAT test-takers, and thus Manhattan GMAT and its prep guides were born.

Format: Paperback
Huge point - I did not see this mentioned anywhere: this book comes with access to 6 online Manhattan GMAT CAT Tests, which are very good quality - they are yours just for buying this book, which makes it a VERY good value!

Another important part to note right away that the book has VERY FEW practice questions. There is 1 or 2 that are used to carry the point across and then there are "In Action" collection of 10-25 sentences at the end of each chapter (plus some online practice) but the book assumes that you will be using the Official Guide or the Verbal supplement for the official Guide. You should get those books anyway, but beware that they are required for practice. If you have already gone through OG's, get The PowerScore Sentence Correction Bible - it is almost as good but comes with practice questions.

This is the best book on the market today as voted by many gmatclub members.

Strengths:
* Only the relevant information and grammar points. Saves a tremendous amount of time
* Indepth overview of each error type to notice the patterns
* Good structure and gradual progression from basic to more advanced topics
* Includes advanced strategies for advanced test takers (650/700+ level)
* Finally, it provides approaches and strategies that work
* Excellent layout - very conducive to learning - especially helpful for visual learners (I am one). The book is actually so well laid out and published that it is enjoyable to read.
*** Access to 6 online GMAT Tests online

Weaknesses:
* Few practice questions included (mentioned above)
* Poor "style" coverage, which usually are the hardest GMAT questions

Let me know if you have any questions about this book - I answer comments on Amazon.
Good Luck on your GMAT,
Best Regards,
BB, Founder of GMAT Club GMAT 750

The GMAT Sentence Correction is what massacres their most people's GMAT score. This book provides GMAT SC coverage better than any book I know.

The previous edition of MGMAT Sentence Correction was decent. But it only covered part of what is tested on the GMAT. This version has largely resolved that problem.

This book covers many areas such as "complex verbs that act as nouns" which is not covered in the previous version. The anonymous authors of this book are apparently high level experts of not only GMAT SC but also general grammar.

GMAT has changed over the years and it has become a substantially different test. The Official Guides no longer provides an accurate guidance of the type and the difficulty level of the actual GMAT questions. If you have taken GMAT Prep (provided free by providers of GMAT), then you will know what I mean.

I have purchased the previous MGMAT SC, PowerPrep SC, and this book. By a wide margin, this book provides the best coverage of both the range and the difficulty level of the real GMAT SC questions.

This is not a short book and you will need to master every inch of it to do well on the GMAT SC. I highly recommend it as the primary source for GMAT SC studies.

I tried sentence correction with several different books - Kaplan, Princeton Review, and others. The other books seemed to focus more on the tricks and shortcuts you can use to arrive at an answer. This book actually takes the time to teach sentence correction, which is exactly what I wanted. This book, plus a bit of effort, turned what would have been my worst section of the exam (based on pre-tests I took) into my best one.

The online material that Manhattan GMAT offers is really helpful to get some additional sentence correction practice problems. You also get access to sample math problems, but I didn't find those to be at all representative of the type of questions you would see on the exam.

Consistent with other recommendations, after studying with this book, get a copy of the GMAT official guide to try out some more problems.

The book is really solid and thorough. I went through several other books before breaking down and purchasing this one and I am glad that I did. Manhattan GMAT breaks down everything, from what you are most likely to see to what you may only have a 1% chance of seeing. They cover every possible angle of this aspect of the test. I would say that improving your sentence correction score is the easiest way to improve your verbal score. If you are on the fence about whether or not to purchase this, definitely make the right decision and order it at least a month before your test.

This book is the best. It gives you a great explanation for the grammar basics in a nice flow. It was good for me in a way it broke down the info in a way I can relate to! If you are looking for something that gives you the infrastructure to master the GMAT sentence correction, then this is it! It does not have practice exams but I already knew that before making the purchase. If you want something with lots of questions and exams, then Kaplan GMAT book is the one for you. I received this book the day after I ordered it, even though it should be 4-9 business days! What a great service!!!
