The Official Guide for GMAT Review (With CD ROM) (English) 13th Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.1279

The Official Guide For GMAT Review (With CD ROM), is the only GMAT text which provides a thorough preparation for the exam.

Summary Of The Book

The GMAT, or Graduate Management Admissions Test is an assessment test administered via a computerized method, used to evaluate an individual’s Analytical, Quantitative, Writing, Reading, and Verbal Skills. The results of the GMAT are used to determine an individual’s admissions options to various business schools, which offer MBA programmes.

The Official Guide For GMAT Review (With CD ROM), is the only text which contains official exam questions taken from the Integrated Reasoning section. The text contains more than 900 questions from previous GMAT exams, access to a companion site which has more than 50 integrated reasoning questions, and a diagnostic section which will aid in test preparation.

Since this component is very interactive as compared to the Verbal and Analytical areas, practice questions for Integrated Reasoning can be found on a special website, which readers can access after acquiring the text. The book also contains more than 20 per cent of official questions from the actual GMAT. The authors of the text have also provided a grammar, and math review. In addition, sample responses to actual essay questions, as well as scoring information has also been provided. A free CD ROM containing the 12th edition of The Official Guide For GMAT Review, is also included.

The text is divided into 11 units and two Appendices. The first unit centers around the makeup of the GMAT such as Scoring, Integrated Reasoning, Exam Format, Assessment Areas, and Test Center locations. Unit two advises students on how to prepare for the GMAT. Unit three, titled Diagnostic Test, looks at the different types of questions in the exam and their respective explanations. Unit four, title Math Review, provides students with a comprehensive revision of various Mathematical topics such as Algebra, Geometry, and Arithmetic.

Unit five, equips students with Problem Solving strategies, Answer Explanations, and Answer Key. Unit six is titled Data Sufficiency, and includes practice questions with solutions. Unit seven covers Reading Comprehension and Unit eight is titled Critical Reasoning. Unit nine is titled Sentence Correction, and addresses various grammar components. Unit ten is Integrated Reasoning and Unit eleven looks at Analytical Writing Assessment. Appendix A contains Percentile Ranking Tables, and Appendix B contains Answer Sheets.

The Official Guide For GMAT Review (With CD ROM), was published in 2013 by Wiley India Pvt. Limited.

Review above

The above review by Subbu is actually misleading. Please read the book summary - the GMAC has clearly stated that only 20% of the questions are new. It is unclear what Subbu expected even after reading this. This book provides a great way to kick off your GMAT prep and includes a primer on the new IR section. It's worth getting this book even if you have the 12th edition ; don't compromise on your exam prep for a mere 1000 bucks. And please don't be carried away by such misleading reviews.

A good supplement to the 12th edition

First off, I'm extremely happy with FlipKart's delivery. It was prompt, and I received the book in very good condition.

Now, about the 13th edition:

I'm very disappointed in the way GMAT folks have come out with a new edition - that has so little to offer.

The caption on the cover reads "More than 900 questions from past GMAT exams" - while this is true & does offer a comprehensive question bank, be warned that almost 70% of the questions are repeats from the 12th Edition. I own the 12th edition too - and I was disappointed so see this much of an overlap between these 2 edi...

I own the 12th edition too - and I was disappointed so see this much of an overlap between these 2 editions.

There is no change in the "Strategy" sections of 13th edition as well - they are exact copies of those in the 12th edition.

From June 5, 2012, GMAT is introducing a new section called "Integrated Reasoning". This book does have a brief section dedicated to it, and offers 50 practice questions online. You'll have to register yourself to get access to those questions; for this you should use the unique access code printed at the back cover of the book - which you should do as soon as you get the book delivered, to prevent any misuse. Oh, and by the way, the access to those questions expire exactly 6 months after you register - so make good use of the practice questions as soon as possible.

Apart from a few additional questions in the verbal & quantitative section plus the 50 IR questions, 13th edition does not have anything more to offer than the 12th edition.

So in conclusion- I would say if you have the 12th edition, don't buy the 13th edition - but if 13th ed is going to be your first book, go for it. There is no other book which offers actual GMAT questions.

OG-13 : Indispensable for GMAT aspirers

OG 13th Edition is absolute indispensable for anybody who plans to appear for GMAT. They contain the most authentic GMAT questions that too organised according to the level of difficulty. If you don't know where to start from or new to the idea of GMAT, the strategy should be to understand the exam pattern, take the diagnostic test and guage your expertise on the both the sections first. I have been reading a lot of reviews about OG and I would beg to differ that this is not the book to commence your preps with.

I have been reading a lot of reviews about OG and I would beg to differ that this is not the book to commence your preps with. These are most valuable real time GMAT questions and should not be wasted by practicing this as the first thing! Rather OG-13 should be practiced when you are half way through your preparation. The standard beginner level quant/verbal and strategies can be practiced from books such Kaplan or Manhattan and then the techniques should be applied on the real thing. I would also go at length suggesting that OG-13 together with GMAC's Verbal Review and Quant Review provide enough material to practice and get used to the real GMAT. Believe me, other than extra practice tests, you won't require an additional resource if your basics are rock solid.

Good luck with your preparation !

Neverthless, kudos to Flipkart, excellent delivery as usual !

Official Guide 13

I think this version is utter crap. I request everyone preparing for GMAT to either refer to the Manhattan material or Kaplan 800 or the new book by Princeton which has over 1200 practice questions, to have any remote chance of doing well in the exam. This material given by GMAC is way too simple as compared to the actual questions which pop up in the GMAT.

I would ask you guys to trust me since I have been a GMAT instructor for the past 5 years and would absolutely not recommend the official on grounds that it is outdated and too simple. In fact I don't recommend it to any of my students...

Good book, not so good delivery

This is a very good book to start your GMAT preparations. And, being the only book from the creators pf the test, it provides a good level of confidence for the preparations.
Though, I was disappointed with the delivery. The pages are bent on one corner, suggesting that the book fell on that edge and there was no hard cover for the transport. Quite disappointed since I have ordered quite a many items from Flipkart, and all were delivered in good state. Full marks to the book, but not to the delivery.
