The wait is over. The 12th edition of The Official Guide to GMAT Review is now "in stock" at Amazon.com. The official publication date isn't for another week, but it appears the book is already shipping.

For those of you who don't know exactly what I'm talking about, here's a little background. The GMAC--the organization that creates and administers the GMAT--publishes study guides--the "Official Guides"--for the test. A new edition is released every 3-4 years.

These guides contain hundreds of practice questions--"retired" items from past tests. Because of that, they are the foundation of any GMAT study plan. If you already have the 11th edition, don't fret--it's still a perfectly adequate resource. In fact, while I haven't received my copy of the 12th edition yet, it probably contains at least a few hundred of the same problems as the previous edition.

Along with the 11th edition a few years ago, the GMAC published two supplemental books for the first time--one with more math practice and one with more verbal. I don't know whether there will be another edition of those books; at least, none have been announced.

You can read my review of the Official Guide books here.
