I purchased Manhattan's GRE Strategy Guides a few months ago for self-study, as I couldn't afford a private tutor. I would also recommend going over the Drill Sets of each book every so often to stay sharp on all mathematical and verbal concepts.

When I first started studying for the GMAT, I had not heard of Manhatten GMAT, though I was impressed with the positive feedback they received on Amazon. Only a few weeks into studying I now understand why they have received such positive feedback. I have tasted their Koolaid and highly recommend using their entire suite of tools for all things GMAT related...

Manhatten has come very close to perfecting the art of studying for the GMAT. Their strategy guides provide the most comprehensive, easy to understand GMAT roadmap on the market. I highly recommend purchasing the entire study guide if you are just beginning your studies, or purchase any of their 8 strategy guides if you need targeted practice in a specific area on the GMAT.

Who should use these guides:
Anyone who is serious about getting a good score on the GMAT AND has the time to invest in getting that great score. Manhatten GMAT's philosophy is to teach students to "do more with more" rather than to "do more with less". This is a great concept for anyone who has the time to invest in learning the test and for those with the desire to score well above average.

Who shouldn't buy these guides:
Those who don't have time to invest and just need a basic understanding of the test. Manhatten really caters to those who are trying to get above a 600 (if not above a 700) on the GMAT. If you are a last minute studier or don't have the desire to ace the test, then I would recommend going with either Kaplan or just the Official Guides provided by the test makers.

Bottom Line:
Manhatten GMAT provides the most comprehensive, in depth coverage of the GMAT. These books, which are accompanied by access to their online practice center (and 6 practice exams), are worth the premium compared to other study material.

These are the top of the line... very structured and every topic is compartmentalized within itself, then further broken down into additional topics. If you like structure then this is for you -- so listen up, all you engineers applying to business school! The books rightly focus on how to master *taking the GMAT*, not how to learn concepts that will propel you in school. If you want to learn a topic, go get a textbook... if you want to learn the GMAT get these. Then just go through each one. Lots of little things that you might not think about even if you're smart -- remember the GMAT doesn't test how smart you are or how well you know a topic... it tests how well you understand the GMAT methods and tricks. These guys have it down for sure.

Context on my usage:
I took the exam in March 2012 of this year. I studied intensively for approximately three weeks (however, I am historically a high performer on standardized exams so for those with greater ground to cover I would suggest allocating more time). I browsed through materials from four major brands before making a selection.

Personal commentary/opinion/experience:
It is much easier to improve your quantitative score than your verbal score, no matter what your starting proficiency. The rules of grammar are riddled with exceptions, and if the nuances are not already ingrained in your mind from years of usage, it will be difficult to internalize over the course of months. Getting problems wrong, understanding the mistake, and remembering it for the next time will be more helpful than trying to memorize rules and exceptions. The math sections, on the other hand, are time-constrained. The hardest problems test the same concepts as the simple ones, but they require multiple steps. The more rules and equations you internalize, the faster you will become. The faster you can either do the problem or assess that it is not doable in a reasonable amount of time, the better your score will be.

Pros:
This is truly a case of getting what you pay for. I would not recommend any of the single-volume prep materials offered by the major test prep brands. You get eight volumes - one dedicated to each question type. You also get access to online resources including computer adaptive diagnostic and practice exams, detailed score analysis, and (somewhat less useful) problem set banks for extra practice. What truly sets this product apart, however, is not the quantity but the approach.

This quality is best described by addressing the math and verbal sections separately. The math sections start with foundational concepts and build up from there. If you go through all the material, you will know all of the relevant topics in sufficient depth. (This is in contrast to the competing solutions, which often only scratch the surface of actual material and instead focus on "tips and tricks" like the process of elimination and comparing your guess of the difficulty of the question to what the average test taker would choose).

The verbal sections are somewhat less differentiated from the competition, largely because there is a natural limitation on how much you can absorb. Again, MGMAT definitely goes in more detail and is far more comprehensive, but at the end of the day the average person will not be able to retain all that material. I think churning through problems (as described in the context section) is the best use of time for these sections.

Cons:
You really do have to commit a lot of time to get through everything. If you're just going to rush through it, you are unlikely to end up any better off than if you used the competing offerings.

Parting thoughts:
If you are serious about boosting your score AND willing to put in the time and effort, this is the product you want. However... IMPORTANT NOTE: Don't buy this edition because the exam changed in mid-2012. A new section (integrated reasoning) was added, which the newer edition incorporates. I can only imagine the fundamental approach to the other sections remain the same, but I do not know that firsthand.

DISCLAIMER: I only used the Number Properties book, the Fractions/Decimals/Percents book, and the SC book.

Speaking only of the above books I used, the set is superb. You also gain access to MGMAT's CATs, and those are fantastic (widely regarded as the next best thing to GMAT Prep), with excellent problem explanations. The set and the CATs definitely helped me get what I got on the exam.

I would also highly recommend the GMAT Math Prep Course book, as that book was what put the extra layers and the icing on the cake that were necessary for the jump to 750. GMAT Math Prep Course

The Manhattan set is highly recommended but the product is not good for people out of school for a number of years and if your background isn't in math. The reviews on GMAT Club and Beat The GMAT come from people with engineer backgrounds or they are very good at math. If your fundamentals are terrible then this set will go over your head. Manhattan assumes you know the basics. After you get your fundamentals down then this set will be useful. Try the Manhattan GMAT Foundations of GMAT math first or another book to get your basics down. The three stars do not reflect the quality of the books but how useful the material was to my studies.
