Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am not blasting this book - I am giving you a rating based on the expectation that the description of this book sets. It does not live up and you are bound to be disappointed. However, it is actually a valuable book but you need to be aware of what you are buying and probably how to use it best when you buy it:

As a pure guidebook - 1 star
As a question collection - 3.5 stars

What You Will Find Inside:
28 Critical reasoning questions
31 Reading comprehension questions
110 Sentence correction questions
107 Problem solving questions (only 7 of which cover combinations and probability)
37 Data Sufficiency questions

Issues that I had with this book:

* No review of math principles or grammar rules. This book assumes that you have gone through the Kaplan's main GMAT book. If you need help with basics look into getting the Math or Verbal Workbooks before getting this one.

* Illogical structure. Instead of the typical approach of providing a rule and then questions to practice that rule on, this book just lists questions in each of the sections. All of the valuable information and tips are scattered around the explanations section. The book assumes you will read/review explanations for every question. In defense, the main point is often emphasized, so they are not too hard to find.

* Question difficulty. Fewer than 50 people per year score 800 on the GMAT, and most of the lucky guys get past 700. To appeal to a broad audience, Kaplan designed this book at a 650/700-level

* Math section is fairly easy and lacks meaningful practice in advanced subjects such as probability, combinations, or coordinate geometry, statistics.

I bought this book because I figured it would provide extra questions. I already had the 2004 GMAT 800 book.

I was very disappointed to see that every single page is IDENTICAL with the two books.

You would think that Kaplan would be able to come up with new questions in 5 years.

Do yourself a favour - buy a used older edition and save some money!

I agree with one of the reviewers here. This book just serves to outline the dificult questions. This is not a guide or does not explain any strategies.
I would definitely not recommend this to anyone.

Buy with great care - recent Kaplan GMAT prep books have been littered with printing errors. The extent of the mistakes is shameful, and when you raise it with their customer service, they respond with silence.

I wouldn't give these con-artists a penny more of my money and would urge anyone considering buying one of their products to tread with care.
