A lot of people have asked which GMAT books to use. I have a made a list of all (or mostly all) the GMAT Books that are available on the market. In general, I recommend Manhattan GMAT and I have heard good things about Veritas. I would also recommend you checkout the reviews on Amazon too. (You can do this by clicking on the link for each book) In interest of full disclosure, I do get a small commission if you click on one of the links and purchase the books. Please note that it is a fixed percentage and the comission is the same for all the books. Happy studying!

Veritas Individual Strategy Books (Quant)
Veritas Individual Strategy Books (Verbal and writing)
PowerScore GMAT (Verbal Books) These verbal books are pretty good too.
In my experience, these books are okay, not great but not terrible either.
- These books are quite mediocre. I don’t recommend these if you are targeting a score of 700 or higher. Ironically, these book are targeted to the Joe Bloggs of the world while the books simultaneously make fun of them.
Other GMAT Books
I haven’t used these GMAT books so I can’t attest the quality of these books. I added them here is I want this page on GMAT Books to be as useful and comprehensive as possible.
