The Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), in partnership with Wiley, is pleased to announce the publication of the GMAT Official Guide 2018 series. As the only GMAT study guide to contain actual questions retired from the exam, this year’s edition contains 15 percent new content — including 220 never-before-seen questions across the Quantitative, Verbal and Integrated Reasoning sections of the GMAT exam.
Created and administered by GMAC, the GMAT exam is an important part of the admissions process for more than 6,500 graduate management programs worldwide. The guides offer a comprehensive set of questions for all types of test takers and they represent a significant first step for those who want to advance their careers through graduate management education. More than 2,100 universities and institutions in 115 countries use the GMAT exam as part of the selection criteria for their programs.
The GMAT Official Guide 2018 series — comprising the GMAT Official Guide 2018: Book + Online, GMAT Official Guide 2018 Quantitative Review: Book + Online, and the GMAT Official Guide 2018 Verbal Review: Book + Online — offers access to more than 1,500 past GMAT questions.
