I bought this book as a suggestion to help me review for the GRE test.
Cece
This book was very easy to understand, and was a great review of simple math concepts to complex concepts.

If you do not have great math skills like me, I HIGHLY recommend purchasing this book.

I am returning to grad school next year after a long hiatus from any kind of formal education (I received my undergraduate degree in 1991) so although I generally have been pretty successful with standardized tests, I was a little nervous about the GRE, in particular about the quantitative analysis portion. I haven't had a math class in over 25 years, since I majored in literature and communications as an undergrad, and was in an honors curriculum which allowed me write papers about math instead of taking a "real" math class.

I took the revised GRE a few weeks ago, so I haven't received my official scores yet, but the range estimates I was given after completing the test were numbers I was happy with (750-800 verbal, 710-800 quantitative). I won't have the official scores until November. These numbers were fairly close to the practice score numbers I got taking the official ETS sample test, and a bit higher than the practice scores I got taking the practice tests.

EDITED TO ADD that my final scores on the new scale were 168/170 verbal, 157/170 quantitative, and 5.5/6 on the analytical writing. As I said above, I am not, nor have I ever been, very good at math, so although the quantitative score is only what I'd consider on the high end of average (77th percentile), for me, this score was far beyond my original expectations, so the studying I did paid off enormously. This Cliffs Notes book is the one I credit the most for my improvement on the quantitative questions.

Here is how I studied:
1. I downloaded and took the free ETS test as a baseline. I also downloaded and studied their free math review materials.
2. Based on step one, I reviewed my options here on Amazon for supplemental study materials, and decided I wanted about two months to study.

I'm a full-time test-prep tutor. Many of my students, particularly my GRE and GMAT students, haven't taken a math class in years. They might have been strong math students at one point in their lives, but if they haven't used the "math lobe" of their brains (if there is such a thing) for that long, their math abilities have usually atrophied.

I view math skill for standardized tests as a foundation - if a student has a strong foundation without any holes in it, they'll more readily learn how to handle some of the trickier questions that standardized tests can present. But if there are holes in their math foundation - a missing triangle formula here, a forgotten exponent rule there - then those deficiencies will come back to haunt them in the midst of a multi-step problem.

That's where this book is so useful. If you do all the practice problems, you'll cover the great majority of concepts that tests like the SAT and GRE will test. Doing the problems is essential - they will give you enough repetition to learn (just staring at a page of formulas isn't that helpful). By the time you're done, you'll have a strong basis for learning the nuances of the test you'll take. This book even has helpful sections for the Data Sufficiency problems on the GMAT and the Quantitative Comparison questions on the Revised GRE.

For math review, I'd recommend the exercises at KhanAcademy.org if you're more of a computer learner, but the advantage of this book is that it's easier to find the concepts on which you want to work. And it's only about nine bucks. Highly recommended.

This is a very good book to learn the presented concepts. But I found that the questions presented in GRE test are of higher difficulty that what is presented in this book. If doing GRE, look for a book with harder questions. The ones in this book are too easy and can mislead you to think that the questions in the GRE will be as simple.

Otherwise, a good book.

I used this book to study for the GRE. I am terrible at math, and I was having trouble answering any of the questions in the GRE study book I bought previously. I decided to give this book a shot, and I am so glad that I did. I took the old SAT quite a few years ago, and I scored in the 20% percentile in Math. I just received my official scores for the new GRE, and I scored in the 67% percentile. I'll take it!

The book covers Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, and Word Problems. There are several diagnostic tests to asses your current skill level. Each test is followed by the correct answers along with thorough explanations. You have the opportunity to answer the same types of problems over and over again for extra practice. The type of math in this book is basic, stuff you do in middle or high school, so most of the problems you will see in the book will be a review. It gives you tips, short-cuts, and provides plenty of examples and explanations for every type of problem presented.

If you do not have great math skills like me, I HIGHLY recommend purchasing this book. I would have totally bombed the math section of the GRE if I didn't study with this book. The way I studied was by taking each diagnostic test in the book, seeing what I got wrong, and focusing mainly on my weak points. I would then go to my regular GRE study book and take a practice test.

Good luck!
