BEWARE - The discount vs the Manhattan website is not free money,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Manhattan GMAT Complete Strategy Guide Set, 5th Edition [Pack of 10] (Manhattan Gmat Strategy Guides: Instructional Guide) (Paperback)
I recently purchased the Manhattan guides from amazon on the recommendation of a colleague. I found them to be very helpful, and decided to register for a local live Manhattan GMAT class as a result of the purchase. Here is the catch- Manhattan GMAT forces you to purchase the books along with the class. They will grant you a waiver if you already own the books, however YOU MUST PURCHASE THE BOOKS DIRECTLY FROM MANHATTAN GMAT TO QUALIFY FOR A WAIVER. If you order from amazon, you will save money up front but realize you will be forced to pay for the books again should you later decide to get additional prep through Manhattan GMAT. Of course, there is no documentation of this policy anywhere on the Manhattan GMAT website, but they magically expect you to know it.

Amazon Customer says:
So, your rating is not for the quality of the course - just this catch 21 over the books? It would be helpful if you would tell us about the books here and also if you took the course...

The review is good but it tells nothing about the quality of the books. Could you please tell us if you liked the quality of the books? Are they helpful? Did they affect the score you received?

If you e-mail MGMAT with a picture of your Amazon receipt, they will grant you access to all of their practice exams. Just make sure your e-mail on amazon is the same one you used to register for MGMAT prep.
