Q: Should I purchase the GMAT® Official Guide Verbal Review 2018 and GMAT® Official Guide Quantitative Review instead of the GMAT® Official Guide 2018?

A: We generally recommend starting with the GMAT® Official Guide 2018 because it offers more questions than the Verbal Review and Quantitative Review combined. The Verbal Review and Quantitative Review are designed as supplements to the main GMAT® Official Guide and offer additional practice questions for students who have exhausted questions in the main GMAT® Official Guide.
