GMAT Quant Review 2016

GMAT Quant Review 2016

The GMAT Quant Review 2016 improves an already solid skill builder. I can attest that our GMAT rulers at the Graduate Management Admission Council have blessed us with a decent update and a worthwhile purchase for anyone needing extra official GMAT Quant practice. It is certainly on the purchase list for a majority of new GMAT tutoring students. That said, if you already own the 2nd edition, likely that the 2016 edition won't add much value.

Problem Solving

GMAC has filled the problem solving section with 61 new questions - a 30% boost. The Quant Review 2nd Edition had a few tough questions - those remain and are joined by another couple dozen reasonably tough puzzles. Most of what has been deleted was on the easy/medium side. Still, don't expect to see questions as tough as the toughest from the OG 2016, GMAT Focus, GMAT Prep Tests, Question Pack 1, or the GMAT Exam Pack. There are one or two that compete with the elites, including one that I recognized from a GMAT that I took a few years ago but on the whole these questions from the Quant Review shine a bit less bright than the stars of other GMAT resources. Are there some puzzles to sink your teeth into? Certainly. Is it necessary to work only on the toughest of the tough? Not really. The GMAT Quant Review 2016 will get you in gear for the crucial mid-range of the test. 

Data Sufficiency

The DS update is anemic - most of the newbies are on the easier side of the spectrum. It would be great to have more of the tougher stuff but across all of the 2016 updates we see a pattern of stinginess with the upper crust of questions. Is this DS from Quant Review 2016 a waste of time? No. There are still plenty of solid learning questions. You need practice for the beginning of your GMAT preparation. This is it!

A Quant Review Conclusion

This GMAT Quant Review 2016 is a step in the right direction and provides reliable practice for the beginning of your GMAT preparation. It's also a great skill builder for doing reps on specific topics. Be aware though that the questions are generally on the easier side so you will certainly need other resources (OG 2016, Question Pack 1, GMAT Prep Tests 1 & 2, Exam Pack) if you want a better simulation of top shelf GMAT Quant questions.
