I felt it was an OK starter book that explained how the GMAT works and logic behind the test, etc but after that it started to fall apart. In particular, I had a few issues with the strategies and expectations this book set - it gave an impression that GMAT was pretty easy and it was a guessing game rather than a test of skill and knowledge (it is definitely not a game).

NEGATIVES:
- Approaches GMAT from high level strategies such as POE, getting into the mind of test writer, backsolving, and others, which are all great strategies but they really belong at the very end of the book, not upfront. Basics such as blocking and tackling need to go first; otherwise it works in a controled practice environment but fails on the test
- Lack of basics coverage for Verbal (very little review of questions, grammar)
- Reading Comprehension strategy needs to be reconsidered. Every other provider such as Kaplan, Manhattan GMAT, Manhattan Review, PowerScore, Veritas, and others suggest to read the passage in its entirety. Which I strongly agree with. Princeton continues to insist on briefly reading the passage and then jumping into the question - the result is the same as above - jumping into hot water unprepared and fumbling through questions. By changing my reading strategy I was able to go from 30% success rate to about 60-70. Literally within 2 days.

Short and simple:
- This book is full of errors
- The online material also has ridiculous amounts of errors and the same questions as what is in the book (i.e. you already know the answers when you try to take a full length test, which does not give you an accurate portrayal of your score)
- The online platform is difficult to navigate and fails to save your scores (not that they're valid anyway considering they just cycle the same questions through all four "full length tests")
- The DVD offers no new insight or practice questions, but simply puts what is in the book into a boring video format

Save yourself the effort and time and go straight for the official GMAT study book. I will take the GMAT for the first time later this month and wish I could get a refund on this poorly constructed and edited study guide...

In my case I took Kaplan's course; and after that I realized problems on this Cracking book result too easy and lacks some other important stuff I realized K does have -especially very important concepts and tips on Math section, so I would recommend to get Kaplan's or something similar (Manhattan being the toughest according to even K!)

Overall, it was a good book. The practice questions at the end are worthwhile. Most of the chapters that explain tips/strategies are pretty basic. I consider myself someone of above average intelligence, and I found their tips to be obvious. I was hoping it would go through more advanced concepts. Still, it was a good review material.
