oreillk2 Posted October 14, 2013 Share Posted October 14, 2013 Hey guys, I'm applying for a masters in financial economics and looking to get as close to a perfect score in the math section as possible (i need to score at least above the 90th percentile). I also need to score at least above the 80th percentile for the verbal. As such, my main focus is the math. Coming from an economics background, I'd like to think I'm quite good at this level of mathematics (got 750Q in the SAT--2100 total). With all the books out there, it's quite difficult to choose among them. I have read strong reviews for both the Manhattan prep and Nova's Math prep course. I am offput by Manhattan's amount of reading. Some of the math books may be superfluous, but it seems like it might be a good basis for a general strategy guide as well for both math and verbal. As for Nova's, it seems very comprehensive with regards to its more fundamental approach.. but my apprehension comes from the fact that it isn't updated for the new GRE. Was going to buy the official ETS guide and the Manhattan 5lb book too... a lot of material to cover! I have about a month to prep. In any case, I am looking for some advice about what books to get: --Experience regarding the aforementioned material --Advice from those who have gotten scores in the range I'm aspiring for (especially w.r.t. math) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
