I've started studying for the GMAT last weekend and wanted one of the first things I did to be Math review. Why? I didn't want to take a full length diagnostic when I knew the results would be skewed by the fact that I hadn't looked at math problems in almost 10 years.

After a quick search, and a little online research I selected the Kaplan GMAT Math Workbook 6th edition, because it had a good mix of what I was looking for:

1. Fairly comprehensive review of the basic math concepts needed for the GMAT
2. Structure of the book allows you to work from start to finish, building on previous skills learned
3. Sections devoted to Word problem and data sufficiency questions
4. Large number of questions to practice on

After barreling through it, in one week, I would give this book a B or B-.

It did what I needed it to do. I was not gravely disappointed and I was not amazed. Some things to note:

* There were some holes in the information covered. Not the end of the world, you can find the information it lacks and you need elsewhere... online, etc.
* The book has answers and explanations for the questions on the section tests but only has answers not explanations for the section exercises which seemed like a silly omission to me for math review workbook.
* The book has a few errors. Without noticing or recognizing these in advance could throw off someone working through the book.

I got 99th percentile on my GMAT 750(49, 42) and i used 3 books: this one, Kaplan's book with CD and Verbal Workbook. I had access to PR book and PP, but I did only tests from those. I found Kaplan's materials of quality and difficulty. Some whine that Kaplan is too hard, but that's good - if you can handle Kaplan, you can handle old good GMAT.

PROS:
- Very short and condensed math reviews - straight to the point
- No smart-aleck advice about some stupid tricks - only math review - exactly what I needed
- Solid problems that illustrate a lot of traps and multiple ways of solving them
- Starts with the basics - arithmetic, integers, primes, etc - the stuff that anybody can uses a review of. A lot of applicants underestimate how much they forgot the basics and skim/skip them. I would not do that, and that book does not either.
- Finally, the number of questions and quizzes in this book is impressive. I am giving a short summary of some of the sections of the book and number of quizzes and test questions. Quiz questions are math only; Test questions are GMAT-type questions.

CONS:
- No probability or combinations review, which would be very helpful. Get something. I bombed my probability question on the GMAT.
- I went through this book at least 3 times (helping others) and I found that solutions don't include some of the most genius ways to handle the problems. I think the authors of the questions went beyond themselves.

I purchased the GMAT 2009 Edition about a month and a half ago and was very displeased at all the errors in both the math and verbal sections. I sent an email expressing my displeasure and I received a quick response from the editor apologizing and sending me PAGES of the correct information. She told me she'd send me the Math Workbook for free. I received the workbook very quickly but THERE'S ERRORS in this book too. What is the point of providing a study guide or incorrect information!?!?!? I am HIGHLY disappointed and HOPE to get a decent grade on my GMATS. I will never purchase another Kaplan product again!

I've used several other GMAT books, including Kaplans own GMAT 800 (which is great). I bought this to get more math questions and explanations, and was horribly disappointed. The layout of this book is TERRIBLE-- the questions are all presented in groups by topic, with the answers scattered at the end of each chapter instead of following a group of questions, which means the answers are usually 10-40 pages behind the questions you are answering. To make matters worse, the answer keys DON'T HAVE LETTERS, so you can't jot down your answers as you go and quickly compare at the end (you have to write down the entire correct answer... doesn't that defeat the point of a *multiple choice* test?

I am colossally disappointed, and will be seeing if Kaplan actually will back up their promise of a refund for dissatisfied customers.

EDIT: Kaplan did indeed honor their guarantee and issued me a check for the purchase price. But, this is impractical, as I had to mail them the book, which cost half the purchase price in postage.
