Why GMAT Official Guides?

The Official Guide set contains a total of over 1400 questions in a set of three books: GMAT Quantitative Review, GMAT Verbal Review and Official Guide for GMAT Review.

All questions in the 2018 Official Guide for GMAT® Review, Official Guide for GMAT® Verbal Review 2nd Edition, and Official Guide for GMAT® Quantitative Review 2nd Edition, are actual retired GMAT® exam questions. There is no overlap between questions found among the main guide, the Verbal guide, and the Quant guide.

The new guides also categorize each section by topic or type. For example, in Problem Solving, the topics include geometry area, properties of numbers, etc. In Sentence Corrections, each problem is identified with one or more grammatical issues. In Critical Reasoning, the three main categories are: argument construction, argument evaluation, and evaluation of a plan. In Reading Comprehension, there are six types of questions: main ideas, supporting ideas, inference, application of information, logical structure and tone/style.

Therefore, we highly recommend you study for the GMAT using all 3 Official Guides of the latest edition.
