Format: Paperback
I recommend this book expecially for foreigners or students who have difficulties in the verbal section of the GMAT. However this book helps to get started, to give you a method, but it is not enough if you are aiming at high score in the GMAT (i.e. more than 640). So keep in mind that you'll probably need an additional book

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By GMAT Club (Expert) on May 10, 2011
Format: Paperback
I am a non-native speaker but have used this book to get 96th percentile on Verbal!

~~~~ SUMMARY ~~~~
Though not as detailed as some of the dedicated RC, CR, SC books, it provides great balance of useful strategies/instruction and time required to cover them. Good number of practice questions and also a grammar/style usage guide at the end.

~~~~~ STRENGTHS ~~~~~
- No tricks, just straightforward strategies to every section (3-4 steps). Easy to remember and simple to use
- Was just the right length for me (covered it in 3 weeks)
- Good number of exercise questions; both 220 GMAT-like (220) and exercises in the chapters; the questions are on the harder side
- Style/Usage guide and list of idioms (you must know all of these)
- Sets the right expectations (GMAT-style reading is very different from casual reading). You must forget what you know and re-learn reading to succeed
- The CR approach to answer the question before reading answer choices works like a charm
- The RC section is what really shines in this book

~~~~~ WEAKNESSES ~~~~~
- I felt the SC section was a little weak (5 pages plus a grammar section in the back). If you are a non-native speaker, you should definitely plan on getting a dedicated grammar book. Kaplan's Verbal Foundations is not bad
- One of the question sets/banks overlaps with the online exercises in the Kaplan Premier book
- The CR questions are slightly different from the official "flavor", which is typical for third-party questions. Keep this in mind and make sure you train your ear on the Official Guide or GMAT Prep before the test

~~~~~ BOTTOM LINE: Great book for those who don't have months to prep for the verbal section but there are better dedicated SC and CR resources.

This is a solid GMAT prep book and will help you improve your verbal score. The questions are very representative of real GMAT questions. The sentence correction questions, in particular, are very GMAT-like in tone, structure and content. But if you are mainly looking for "hard" questions -- then the advanced GMAT book might be a better option.

It's a good book. I used the Barron's review book as well as this one and I scored over 85 percent in my GMAT English section.
