    This book is primarily useful for giving a study outline, but the same can be achieved by reading an intro psych textbook. It lists terms and key figures with which/whom you should be familiar, but it doesn't give information about most of them. If you have forgotten these names since you took the pertinent course, you're out of luck. However, it frequently reiterates that you should be reviewing alongside a "good" intro psych book. If you do, in fact, have a good intro book, you actually don't need the Barron's book. You already have all the information the review book provides, plus the important details that the review book lacks.

    For testing information, the introduction is confusing and somewhat misleading. For example, you are encouraged to answer as many questions as possible, even if guessing is required (as is necessary on the computer-based general GRE exam, which you have probably already taken and have come to expect). However, credit is taken off for wrong answers and not for blank responses. This appears to be a conflicting strategy.

    In short, I would recommend just having a good intro psych book and skipping this altogether (Gazzaniga & Heatherton's "Psychological Science" is very comprehensive and probably suffices on its own as review). If you want a practice exam to follow your progress, go ahead and sign up with ETS and they will mail you a practice test (or find one online). Save your $$ and your time.

    Barrons should only be used if you have already studied material from Kaplans and the Princeton Review guide. I bought as many GRe psychology guides as I could to make sure I studied everything, Barron sonly helped to verify I knew everything and maybe gave me some more topics to study, but I would not recommend this guide. Use it only if you have used all of the other books and want to make sure you study as much as you can to be really well prepared for the test. Good luck!

    I really wanted to like this book, given the usefulness of Barron's General GRE book. However, this book fell far short of my expectations. For every section it says, "Be sure to have your intro books handy for review." I don't see the point in buying a book that tells me to read other books. On the other hand, the practice tests are useful if you have the time to run through all of them. My suggestion is to make this book the last one on your list of study aids.

    I am applying for clinical psychology doctoral programs and bought this book based on the reviews I read about it on Amazon to prepare for the GRE Psych exam. I did not major in psychology and was 1.5 years out of college when I started using the guide (just to give you some context of my starting place).

    I found the book to be very helpful and well organized. I appreciated that there were two diagnotic exams to take along the study path to gauge your strengths and weaknesses. There is a fairly in-depth review in the book for quick reference on names, dates, research studies, and theories that proved to be very useful during my study. However, I noticed that a few questions were repeated in the exams offered in the book.

    I would not recommend that one use only the study summary in this book for the sole means of preparation for the exam. The exam is so densely content-based that it would not be a good idea. Before I started using this study book, I reread an introductory psych textbook to refamiliarize myself with the concepts.

    Those two methods helped prepare me well. I have yet to see my scores.
