I studied for about a week before the GRE using this book. It is very well written, very easy to understand,and it has great pointers! The short cuts they show you are absolutely helpful! The list of words most commonly seen on the GRE is dead on, I saw many of them on there. I also see many of them in the scholarly articles I read in class. This was my second time taking the GRE (my first time was two years ago). I was able to raise my score 180 points! This is the only study method I used. Well, that and the prometric testing center sends a CD that has additional review questions...use that as well! It gives you the practice questions in the format used for the electronic test....so you can get aquainted early. Also, the math review on the practice CD was wonderful in addition to the math review in this book! Good luck!

This is a great book that covers all subject areas with both a review of the material tested and the introduction of useful strategies. I use this book when I tutor my GRE students.

I strongly encourage you to purchase this guide if you are studying for the GRE. This book walks you through each type of question and teaches you tghe tricks that the test may throw at you as well as some tricks of your own on how to answer questions with words you don't know or how to make a math problem easy/quick. It takes some time to get through the whole book, but I feel it is worth it! I feel like I know what I will be up against on test day and am prepared to take it.

I used this book to study for about a month before I took the GRE. While the ideas and content of the book were good, I was very, very annoyed by the amount of typos. I could have forgiven this, but many of them where in the math section where the right number or symbol was important to know. Very, very, frustrating. Because I have only used Kaplan study materials, I'm not sure what else is out there, but it might be worth looking into. In general, I can't say I recommend this book.

Ok for learning GRE test taking techniques. I thought Princeton Review had better techniques, but Kaplan had better questions and quizzes were longer and more complete.

It cannot make studying fun, because this is a BORING test for which to study!

I did OK on the quant, but might have done a little better if studying for the test was not so mind-numbing.

I scored 1460/1600 which is good, but I was hoping for a better quantitative score. Results were:
Quant 760/800 = 86th percentile.
Verbal 700/800 = 97th percentile.

Did Kaplan help? Certainly. But I thought that the techniques for some test portions, esp analogies, were better dealt with in Princeton Review.
