Improve your GMAT Score with Hacks From Jeff
GMAT Hacks Author is Jeff.
About the Author
Jeff Sackmann has been helping students like you reach their GMAT score goals for nearly a decade. Jeff began as a star tutor and classroom teacher for a big test-prep company. Since 2006, he has focused on developing the best materials in the industry, saving you time, money, and stress.
In his books, Jeff focuses two things: building solid content knowledge and providing extremely realistic practice material. Unlike many other resources on the market, his practice problems are virtually indistinguishable from the real thing, making you that much more prepared for the GMAT before you sit for the exam.
Words from Rome Wells
Jeff managed to figure out a way how to hack GMAT exam and packaged it neatly in 2 main books, specifically for math quantitative section and verbal section. Jeff managed to infuse his tutoring experience, to create test prep material that is certainly unique, and definitely affordable in comparison to what's on the market out there. Jeff didn't just create GMAT books for math and Verbal, but went above and beyond by creating a 3rd book as well, that covers 111 GMAT: Tips, Tricks, and Tactics, which walks you hrough the entire process, from determining a goal score, to encountering Data Sufficiency for the first time, to handling the stress of exam day.
Some of these tips of course you can find in other books, such as exam secrets, etc, but Jeff managed to infuse some of the tips that are indeed unique in comparison to other content available on the market. Cool part about his books, that i like the most is first of all they are way more affordable then fully blown packaged GMAT courses.
My Review Continued
However in regards to claim from the author that this is the only book that you would need to prepare to tackle your GMAT exam, well... I wouldn't go that far. Simply because there are multiple types of students, and everyone learns differently. Can Jeff's books provide great level of learning effectiviness? Yes, would I put my faith into studying only from one resource for GMAT? Probably not.
Rome Wells GMAT Study Advice
My advice always study from multiple resources for maximum learning effectiviness. One test prep vendor can cover concepts in different way that another vendor simply couldn't cover the right way for your particular learning style. Also one thing i noticed with Jeff's site some links were broken, and some content is a bit outdated. However, what I like the most about Jeff is that he is not just some company who created GMAT prep, but instead from an actual person full of GMAT educationa test perp passion.
Difference between Jeff's GMAT Hacks and big company GMAT books
When books are created by individualized entities, rather then companies, they tend to cover information in holistically different way, and in many caseses end up maximizing learning effectiveness, by making books more interesting, simply because bigger companies mostly hire educatorsto create some content, but such educators only get paid hourly and in some cases simply don't care about student success (since in many cases they are working for someone else rather than themselves) other than to create content and sell it (hence in bigger company type of books that you find on the internet, it's just much more difficult to be engaged into study content). How doI know that (Rome Wells)? because I run company myself named Tutoring Servcies, LLC and know how to decipher quality product from mass products.
My Verdict about Jeff's GMAT resources
What I am seeing with Jeff's resources is passionate GMAT resources created by not just someone who wanted to improve his chances of helping students out by creating a book and selling it, but by someone who also happen to be an educator himself as well helping students and tutoring them as well (In some way Jeff even reminds me of me Rome Wells). Having such breed of a combination and infusing such level of experience into GMAT Hacks books is indeed what makes Jeff's books different, plus they are way more affordable then the local tutor or packaged course.
Study Prescription formula for GMAT from Rome Wells
Hence if money is a huge issue and you can't spend money on packaged courses, then Jeff's book can be one of the most affordable ways to prepare. If you are weakest in math, for example for maximum learning effectiviness, I would prepare with Jeff's GMAT Math book + either examPAL or GMAT Pill. This way you are studying from multiple resoruces, for higher chances of improving score.
Then if you really need to be in top shape and must have an absolute top GMAT score, then I would study with Jeff's book + GMAT Pill or examPAL or other packaged course + local tutor. Local tutor may know many things that you simply don't and is indeed expensive but, at the end of the day is worth it, especially if you are simply not good studying on your own, or simply can't manage to improve your score, no matter how hard you try.

Money Saving Tip From Rome Wells for Total GMAT Math Help
This e-book is only $49.95 Jeff also sells Amazon version which is basically the same thing, but hard copy, but costs $10 more istead of $49.95, $59.95, however if i was preparing for GMAT and money was seriously an issue, then if it was me instead of paying $49.95, I would instead get both books the Math book and Verbal, and save additional 10%.
Buying Ebook as oppose to print, can save money, and buying it as part of package can save 10%
So instead of paying for math book $59.95 printed version, I would get non printed version, since it's available right away and downloadable right away, instead of me waiting for it to arrive and plus it's cheaper, additionally I noticed Jeff offers 10% if you get both verbal and math books, totalling $89.95 wow which is even more cheaper. If you were to go to Amazon and buy them seperately you would pay basically $120, instead if you were to purchase it as a bundle you get to save 10% When you visit Jeff's site look for this image shown below, to take advantage of the savings.
Quick Price Analysis from Rome Wells and Money saving tip
This price is way better then a local tutor or online (trust me I know see for your self how much GMAT tutors cost at our local tutoring site or on our sister www.TutoringServices.com site) or packaged course, however, it doesn't come close to the dynamic adaptive method of learning type of experience, that you would get for example from examPAL. (the type of method that is one of the most unique methods I have ever seen in GMAT test prep type of study resources)
Jeff makes it affordable for students who are either good in math or english
Note, one thing I like the most is that Jeff, doesn't just sell one book with both math and english type of test prep material, instead he seperates it into 2 types of books. This is actually pretty good, because some students may be really good in english, but bad in math.
In fact Rome Wells strongest subject is Math, and not English. Hence, no reason to pay twice as more for something that you don't need. Hence if you are skills are not that great in math, but good in English, then guess what getting GMAT Math book can most certainly help you improve your chances, and get such book for very affordable price, in comparison to other resources that exist on the market.
Difference between Jeff Books and Packaged courses
However, keep something in mind, some of the packaged courses that are way more effective, then static book reading, also in some cases offer discounts, so if you think about it, if you get an actual packaged course instead of what Jeff is selling, and happen to fall into promotional period, then the difference between the price of what you would pay for Jeff's book and packaged course may not be huge!
Yet the amount of time you save studying from packaged adapative course, would be more! Essentially equating your amount of potential money spent, from the perspective of amount of time you may waist of studying for GMAT statically!
Often no one tells you about such things, but Rome Wells does! So definitely before making your decision be sure to contact us (especially if Rome Wells contacted you directly) and ask if there is any promotional coupons available for packaged courses. However, if you do made up your mind already and want to proceed with Jeff's affordable book instead, then definitely feel free to continue reading to view more information about Jeff's GMAT Hack Books.
More about GMAT Total Math Resource Book
GMAT Total Math book is Jeff's most popular book (Rome Wells don't blame him... math is difficult subject heck, I my self used to struggle in math). (It was formerly known as "The GMAT Math Bible.")

Best of all, the book is broken down into about 40 chapters, each of which covers a single GMAT math topic in depth.
According to Jeff. If you have to prepare for the GMAT Quantitative section with only one resource, this is it!. (as mentioned earlier by me Rome Wells, I would always recommend to study with multiple resources, however Jeff's book does cover lots of questions, and for some students could be just enough, however it all depends on student's educational background, and how quickly student can grasp concepts)

Here is how Jeff Describes this book
There are a lot of books on the market that aim to cover the content of the GMAT. Rarely does such a book provide an thorough strategy for studying, preparing, and attacking the entire test.
That's why I wrote GMAT 111: Tips, Tricks, and Tactics. Broken into 111 bite-size chapters, it walks you through the entire process, from determining a goal score, to encountering Data Sufficiency for the first time, to handling the stress of exam day.
More than anything else I've written, GMAT 111 is like a "Best of GMAT Hacks." For the last four years, I've been sharing my insights on this website. GMAT 111 organizes and combines them into one resource--and even long-time readers will find new concepts here to improve their score.
This book is designed to be concise and to-the-point. Each chapter is no longer than one page, meaning you can read and understand a new idea during downtime at work or in a few minutes before bed. Each concept is actionable, so you can immediately put it to work in your next study session.
