RESTON, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/14/14 -- The Graduate Management Admission Council, in partnership with Wiley, is making studying for the GMAT exam easier and more convenient. The best-selling Official Guide for GMAT® Review series is adding online content, videos and a study tool, allowing business school applicants to access hundreds of real, retired GMAT questions both in book form and online to customize their own question sets.
The best-selling Official Guides are being released as an annual series, starting this month with the Official Guide for GMAT® Review 2015 and supplemental guides for the Quantitative and Verbal sections. The Guides are released by the Graduate Management Admission Council, which creates and administers the GMAT exam on behalf of graduate business and management programs worldwide.
"The Official Guide for GMAT Review has been a consistently popular trade publication since the first edition was published in 1978. Now, we are making studying for the GMAT exam easier and more flexible, as people can both annotate the book and customize question sets with the new, online component," said Ashok Sarathy, GMAC vice president, product management.
"Our growth in the digital space and dedication to further learning and career development created an ideal partnership for Wiley and GMAC," said Joan O'Neil, VP and managing director at Wiley. "We are excited to see how the new online aspects and tools evolve so we can continue to bring the best content and value to our customers."
The 2015 series will contain the same content as the Official Guide for GMAT Review, 13th Edition, and the Official Guide for Quantitative Review, Second Edition, and the Official Guide for Verbal Review, Second Edition, along with access to exclusive online content including videos and a study tool that allows users to customize practice sets by question format and difficulty level. The series contains:
- Official Guide for GMAT Review 2015, with 900 retired questions and answer explanations, a diagnostic test, online access to 50 Integrated Reasoning questions, and sample essay questions, along with online access to exclusive videos and a tool to put the questions into customized question sets. $45.95.
- Official Guide for GMAT Quantitative Review 2015 and Official Guide for GMAT Verbal Review 2015, each with more than 300 additional questions in the print book, plus online access to video content and a tool to put the questions into customized question sets. $19.95 each.
The 2015 series is available at bookstores worldwide and at the mba.com/store.
"We see our role as giving candidates the best opportunity to perform to the best of their ability on the GMAT exam. Publishing the Official Guide is part of that mission as the series offers more retired practice questions than any other product on the market. The online enhancements made to the 2015 edition are the first of many improvements, and we plan to update the Guides on an annual basis," Sarathy said.
