Quick review. I've read through 4 chapters only so I can't comment on the entire book. So far I'm glad I purchased the book. Manhattan GMAT books are great. I have all of the strategy guides (paperback) and went ahead and got the Verbal and Math foundations as Kindle Editions. Overall the Verbal foundations does what it says. It goes back to the basics as a previous reviewer wrote. It's a great refresher for me so I don't mind that. Furthermore there are some great tips in the book that I find are very helpful. Now another reviewer said that you need other books as well, and I think it's fair to say but I believe that regardless of what GMAT book you're going to end up purchasing more than 1 book.

Now comes the annoying part of the kindle editions. There are drills throughout the GMAT Verbal foundations book that ask the reader to for example analyze the parts of a sentence that are underlined. In the kindle edition, nothing is underlined!!! I thought well maybe it might be different on a kindle reader versus a kindle app. It's the same thing. If this will annoy you as it does me, spend the extra money and get the paperback.

Before I purchased this book I was regularly scoring in the low 30's on practice tests for the GMAT. I have always been more comfortable with science and math subjects and never cared much for composition type classes. Working through this book is absolutely the reason I was able to score a 40 on the actual test. The book is laid out in a systematic order and has plenty of mini quizzes that help you test what you are learning to make sure you grasp the concepts. It is a big book and very well made. I highly recommend this for your GMAT prep.

I am preparing for the GMAT and I thought it would be a great idea to go back to the basics and this does exactly what it sets out to do. I bought the Kindle edition to read but I would probably recommend buying the paper version. The Kindle version ha some strange alignment issues although it doesn't affect the ultimate material. This is a book I intend to go back to before the actual test and I think it will be a great use of anyone's time to read.
