Published:

RESTON, VA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/05/12 -- The only GMAT study guide with real questions from past exams has been updated with new questions and an online companion to help you prepare for the Integrated Reasoning section, which will become part of the exam in June. The 13th Edition of The Official Guide for GMAT Review (Wiley Paperback; April 9, 2012; $42.95) is on sale at mba.com, at online retailers, and in bookstores around the world.

The 13th edition of the guide includes more than 900 real questions and answer explanations from past GMAT exams, including 205 that have never before been released to the public.

A new chapter provides details about the new Integrated Reasoning section, as well as instructions on how to access an online study companion with 50 Integrated Reasoning questions and answer explanations. These questions simulate the actual Integrated Reasoning section, which includes questions that require you to toggle between multiple screens and manipulate data in tables and charts.

The guide also features comprehensive math and grammar reviews that cover concepts tested on the quantitative and verbal sections of the GMAT, plus a diagnostic exam to help you focus your test preparation. The guide includes more than 400 quantitative questions and answer-explanations and more than 400 verbal questions and answer explanations; both types are in order of difficulty.

Beginning in June, the Analytical Writing Assessment section of the GMAT will include only one essay; the previous version of the test included two. The 13th edition of the guide, however, still has 135 essay topics with sample responses and scoring information to best help test-takers prepare for the exam.

The Official Guide for GMAT Review, 13th Edition, is written by the Graduate Management Admission Council(R) (GMAC(R)), a nonprofit organization of leading business schools around the world that owns the GMAT. The guide is published and sold by Wiley.
