You’ll discover how to:

Understand the test’s format Bring the right stuff Make educated guesses Avoid the exam’s pitfalls Calm your nerves Save time and beat the clock

This Fifth Edition is packed with plenty of updated practice questions so you can see just how the GMAT tests a particular concept. Our sample questions read just like the actual test questions, so you can get comfortable with the way the GMAT phrases questions and answer choices. You get plenty of tips on correctly answering the sentence correction, reading comprehension, and critical reading questions and tackling the analytical essays. There’s also a comprehensive math review of everything from number types to standard deviation and expanded coverage of statistics and probability. Each section ends with a mini practice test to prepare you for the two full-length practice tests featured in this easy-to-digest guide. You’ll see how to:

Quickly eliminate incorrect answer choices Read passages quickly and effectively Break apart and analyze arguments Write a well-organized, compelling essay Tackle the data sufficiency math question type that only appears on the GMAT Use relaxation techniques if you start to panic during the test

Complete with a scoring guide, explanatory answers, timesaving tips, math formulas you should memorize, and a list of writing errors to avoid, GMAT For Dummies is all you need to practice your skills, improve your score, and pass with flying colors.

This is a wonderful book to begin studying for the GMAT. It contains almost everything you will need to learn in order to succeed in the exam. At the point when I write this review I am about 2/3 into the book and well into the quantitative section. I have also purchased several other books to help achieve my business school goals including the books Your MBA Game Plan and Great Applications for Business School. I have taken practice GMAT exams before and after reading most of this book my score did improve considerably on the practice tests. I can only imagine that my score will improve even more once I finish the entire book and review all of the concepts in preparation for the real GMAT.

A few bits of advice I can provide those thinking about buying the book are the following....

1. If your goal is to get into a top 20 MBA program and need a score of 700+ this book will absolutely not be enough to achieve that. GMAT for Dummies would be an excellent choice to start your studying for the GMAT and boost your confidence as well as introduce you to the basics of what you will find on the GMAT. If your goal is a top business school then you will want to supplement this book with the Manhattan GMAT Complete Strategy Guide Set.

2. If your goal is a more modest institution where you only require a 550-600 score on the GMAT then this book could prove to be enough for you. I would still recommend you buy at least one other preparation book to supplement this with because this book really makes the GMAT appear easier than it really is.

3. Do not skip the first two chapters of this book. They are essential strategies for handling the GMAT exam as a whole.

4. There are a few errors in the quantitative section as well as some in the qualitative section. Make sure to pay close attention to these so you do not get tricked. Some of the other reviews have already posted these errors here. Make sure to take note of them.

5. DO NOT CRAM this material. There is a lot you will likely need to review for the GMAT and if you try to cram it all at once it will only end up costing you in the end. I would recommend you read one or two chapters each day and review the information on the following day, making flash cards, taking notes, or writing reminders in the process. The book should take you about two weeks to finish if you study effectively and at a good pace.

6. USE THE PRACTICE EXAMS. The practice exams that come with the book are very useful to get you familiarized with the GMAT's style. There is not much else to say about this, use the practice tests.

Overall, the book is great for people who have modest goals for obtaining an MBA. Those of you who wish to go to a top 20 school might want to look elsewhere or only use this book as a starting point.
I liked the idea of using a "Dummies" book for concept review and something to start the foundation for my GMAT prep. In Chapter 16 in my printed version has many test questions that are missing the actual answer selections that renders the mini test useless. There are a few other exam examples elsewhere in the book that are also missing the answer selections. The corresponding explanations given make no sense unless you can see what the answer choices were. I called Wiley and they are examining if there is a problem with the book itself (Master Copy) or just the one I received (specific print run).
This is really poor quality control if the printing company is to be blamed and even worse if the authors were missing these sections, because that meant the authors and editors did a really poor job. The fact that some of the errors already pointed out do not accur in my printing means that there are probably several print runs of the 5th edition with different errata corrections within.

Wiley, fix the QC issues. I hope to hear from you soon.
I did like the content and the writing style of the authors to help with the review material. It made things fairly easy to understand and simple for review purposes.
If you want a book to give you an idea of what to expect this is the one. It's a very easy read, and gives you the basics to start studying for the GMAT. I wouldn't recommend this book to be the only one you look at before taking your GMAT. If you did that, you would be very unprepared. Look into buying The Official Guide for GMAT Review, 12th Edition,The Official Guide for GMAT Quantitative Review, 2nd Edition, and The Official Guide for GMAT Verbal Review, 2nd Edition if you are serious about taking the GMAT. They are a lot more informative and give you many more test questions to study with.
Some of the tips and tricks for the test taking experience were helpful. Most of the questions were not worthwhile if you plan on scoring beyond a mid-level score. Probably would try a different learning tool (GMAT actually offers some software for free testing practice. Although I feel it is dumbed down a little bit it was one of the more helpful things I used while studying).
I used two books to study for my GMAT exam: Kaplan Premier and this book.
"GMAT for dummies" was a very good overview and a refresher. It helped me get quickly up to speed.
However, This book however was awsome for strategies and practice. It has one significant drawback - there are no computerized tests.
I found practicing on the computer extremely important.
I recommend this book as an overview book but also recommend using either Kaplan Premier or some other source for online/computerized practice
Even though the book was marked as "used" but it was as good as new!!!

Thanks a lot for a great product and excellent delivery service

The book though was not very helpful to me... I know that I have not readi it all, but when i did start to read it, it was very boring and not user-friendly that I stopped reading it and focused on studying instead.

I cant say if it was my problem or the book was not very appealing to me!
When I was searching for a GMAT study guide, most of the ones I found on the market were 700 and 800+ page tomes. Sheesh! GMAT for Dummies, however, is much shorter but still goes over all you need to do well on this exam.
This is a book for everyone who needs the get an idea about the gmat. It's more of a warm up before moving to the real books such as the official set of books which are the best tool to test yourself. I would suggest Gmat for Dummies for those who are scared of the test, this book makes the test not as frightening as it looks.
