Alright, I can no longer delay this. It’s time to get studying. I’ve been doing some research to decide what prep materials I should use. It seems like the Official GMAT Guide is a no brainer. Insight from the actual company that creates the tests, previous test questions, and a full guide-yes please! You can find a comprehensive review of all the products offered here: http://www.mba.com/us/store/store-catalog.aspx. But to be honest, I saved a few dollars and ordered my materials off of Amazon. The Official Guide Book gives a great overview of the test format, question types, and other tips and tricks.
The only other resource I’ve tried so far is the Magoosh GMAT software. It is not as comprehensive as some of the other software programs, but it’s a great resource to get started. And it’s affordable, only about $100. The program offers study videos, examples, and questions. Is also has a dashboard to help track your progress. This software is great if you want a quick refresher in the basic areas of study to help with the Quan and Verbal portions of the exam. There are not many strategy techniques offered in this software. http://gmat.magoosh.com/ That being said, I do not recommend this as the only study materials you use for preparation, just some materials to get you started. Let me know if you have any questions!
