Study Guide - Overview

A Simple Approach – Watch, Learn, Practice, Practice

This Study Guide will lead you from day one of your studies all the way to test day. It's based on the proven, straightforward strategy of learning one concept at a time and then reinforcing your learning by practicing several questions related to that one concept. This allows you to see the many different ways the GMAT can test your knowledge of this one concept.  It also helps build your confidence as you master one concept at a time.

Complete the Steps and Take the GMAT with Confidence

Each learning activity in the Study Guide has a corresponding checkbox, allowing you to track your progress, and easily see which activities are left to complete.

Required Resources

  • The Official Guide for GMAT Review (2019 edition, or earlier editions from 2015 to 2018)
  • GMAT Prep Now's Improvement Chart (for the 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016 and 2015 editions of the Official Guide for GMAT Review ). This downloadable Excel file helps track your progress and identify weaknesses as you work through practice questions in the Official Guide

  • Official Guide for GMAT Quantitative Review (2019 edition or any earlier edition)
