I am scrambling to finish my GMAT before the IR hits the GMAT. That means, I will be registering for end of May test date. Should I consider taking a look at OG13, or any other "new" material if I am taking the test before June5th? Is there anything I should consider w.r.t the new changes in GMAT if I am taking the test in May 2012?

Thanks in advance.

I understand there are some 158 new math problems..might not be a bad idea to get it.. you could create a self test and do a series of problems and time your self..bottom line, you are unlikely to learn anything new, its just practice and testing your skills from your GMAT tool kit..good luck

Hey iwillsurvive,

Our own DanaJ also wrote a review of the OG13 here: https://www.beatthegmat.com/mba/2012/03/ ... ook-review which references Stacey's article that you've linked to.

Hope that helps!

Best,
