It does go into extensive detail about math you use on the exam. The first half covers the kinds of math (arithmetic, algebra, and geometry) and reviews those things we learned in high school, but may have forgotten. The second half covers the question types (comparison, word problems, and data analysis). There is a lot of material, so you have to skim through what you know and focus on your weaknesses.
I got this book after going through a comprehensive GRE test book and taking several practice tests. I was weak on the quantitative section, so I needed extra work, and this helped. My math score did improve dramatically after a week of intensive study with this book.
So, I recommend that you don't get this book when you start studying for the GRE. For people that are already strong in math, a regular GRE book might be enough. But if you practice and see that your math score is weak, use this one and study hard! It will definitely help.
As for results, I had previously taken a sample paper exam for the GRE,to confirm my suspicion that I needed significant study to prep for exam. After being out of university for over ten years (and already weak in mathematics) my scores were sobering. Now, the paper exam is not directly comparable to the Computer Adaptive Testing (CAT) exam that ETS utilizes but I think my improvement was significant enough to mention after using the Princton/Kaplan combo.
My quantitative points improved a solid 100%! That in itself was worth every penny invested in these two prep books. I scored average in the verbal section but I still experienced a 48% increase in points pushing me above the 90th percentile.
If you are looking to actually do well on the GRE quantitative section (scoring in the 90th+ percentile), then this book isn't for you. It just leaves too much stuff out.
I am horrified that they would actually let people buy this book; they really should give everyone a refund. If you buy this book, you will be disappointed that you just wasted your money.
Overall, I'm content with this as a study starting point. I'm glad I used it and all of the practice problems and explanations were very helpful, but I wouldn't go so far as to say it will leave you fully prepared for the quant. test. But I guess that's why they're trying to pit the "Comprehensive" book instead. Ah well, best of luck.

The book is completely filled in. While I realize it was used, I figured that it would have some margin math and a couple dog earred and missing pages, etc. Read morePublished on November 13, 2013 by Derek Gordon
This book is ok. Helped me remember middle and high school things that I hadn't studied in years, but left out a great deal of material. Read morePublished on January 10, 2013 by RatCatGradStudent
Kaplan has a great name in review books, but I gifted to a friend so I'm not sure how they used it, but it was free, so I'm sure it was worth it to them!Published on December 28, 2012 by Darryl Ross
