    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.

    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 comme...

    Ofcorse its helpful

    This book is pretty helpful but if you are not very good at maths and verbal i will suggest refer to foundation manhattan then princeton and then official gmat.. you will not need any coaching..
    Level 1- foundation manhattan (which contains basics).
    Level 2-Princeton (easier presentation of official gmat).
    Level 3 - Official Gmat.
    Practice Tests as many as you can take.

    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 d...

    A Good Book For The Beginners

    I would recommend this book for those who has no idea where to start for the GMAT.. The book starts with the basic idea of what is GMAT and then how to prepare for it.. There are practice questions but those who think that this will act as a textbook must know that this is just a review for the whole GMAT exam. This will help you about the know-hows, don't expect it to be a textbook of any particular field..

    And flipkart delivered this book in 6 days in a good condition.. Not perfect but good..

    worth buying

    I agree with Gaurav.
    New OG offers 180 new questions and that too by the creaters of the Test with best explanations. Worth buying even you have earlier OGs.
    Best part is access to the critical reasoning questions for those taking the test on or after 5.6.2012.

    Really Good book !!

    This is the go to book to solving problems. Prefer an Aristotle or Manhattan or PowerPrep for concepts. But questions in this book are of GMAT level.

    Make sure to go through the Wiley IR question bank (CD provided) although actual IR questions are on the tougher side.
