In my opinion, OG and Princeton Review are great books to start with. OG gives you the seriousness, and Princeton lightens up things a little bit.
After that, Manhattan SC, Kaplan Premier, 800 etc based on how well you identify your strengths and weaknesses. Again, check the Query Center. "The key is to study smart not hard"...was what Arun (Psychodementia) said in one of his postings....and that my friend is the "Mantra" of the day for me ! 😃
thanks Vikram, Do you have a schedule , as to wht to start with. I am planning to have a diagnostic test frm OG first to analyze myself initially and than move on to invidual sections.When one shud do Kaplan 800?
There are many other books/resources that people recommend. One thing in common that I found from most gurus is, practice online/on pc as much as possible, rather than basing most of the prep on books.
There are numerous postings on these lines on the Query Center.
Please go through :
Hope it helps.
