GMAT Course Materials

The required text (paperback) for the September 2016 GMAT Strategies course, The Official Guide for GMAT Review, 2016 ($45.95), can be purchased through www.MBA.Com. The publisher released a 2017 version; however, the text contained typos and is currently under revision.  Confirm the current text when registering with The Massey School for the GMAT Strategies course.  Students are required to purchase, download, and bring to the first class meeting prints of GMAT Paper Tests Set 3 ($29.99; www.MBA.com).  Since material from these tests will be used for in-class testing, material should not be reviewed in advance. The instructor will advise students which free materials should be downloaded from www.MBA.com during the course to supplement instructor-provided materials.  Materials prepared by the instructor are included in the cost of the course and distributed during the course.

Students whose essay writing skills need strengthening are encouraged to provide the instructor an advance copy of a sample essay, written under timed conditions, on one of the topics presented in the text and to schedule a 1:1 session with the instructor at lunchtime during one of the last three class meetings to review the instructor’s suggestions for improving it.
