After reviewing both the newer 2013 summer versions of the Kaplan and Princeton Review GRE prep books online, I purchased the Kaplan version. The Kaplan formatting is simple (yet tedious at times). For the price, I wanted the extra practice tests (6 in the Kaplan verses 4 in the Princeton Review). Kaplan also covered an array of media formats, and I wanted mobile prep access for trips. Overall, I like the resource (hard to love any test prep materials).

I haven't taken the GRE before (or yet), so I can't quantify the book's final score impact.

Free tip: The Kaplan GRE prep website has some free practice questions as well. So, you can check those out regardless of which book you may purchase.

Having gone through this book, I don't feel that it was much help. It gives "tricks" for the math part, but does not include a review of all math topics on the GRE. The ETS free math review for the GRE gives a much better review of all math topics in detail. I'm not generally a fan of using ETS materials for ETS tests, but their free math review is very good.
For verbal, this book just takes you through each section and suggests some strategies, but the strategies are very obvious - I would use these strategies even if I hadn't read them in the book. (or example, try to predict which word would make sense in the blank, and see if one of the answer choices is a synonym of the word you chose.)
I look at this book as a nice introduction, but then you need some more serious practice. If you buy this book, plan to spend a minimal amount of time on it, and devote most of your study time to practice problems - that's what really gets the score up. Manhattan Prep 5Lb. Book of Practice Problems and ETS free practice tests and materials are very helpful.

I am way too old to be taking the GRE, and it's been over 13 years since my last standardized test. I ordered this book two months before the test, sat down and did everything it said, and totally aced the exam. They really know what they are doing at Kaplan. The guidance in this book (how to prepare for and structure the essays, what math equations to memorize, what flashcards to make) was top-notch, and the practice exams, both in the book and online, were great preparation.

Having taken the GRE several times, I think this book is better than the Princeton Review's Cracking the GRE, but not by much and it is in fact weaker in some ways. For example, the PR text seems to be superior in preparing one for vocabulary-building and for some types of math questions (such as PR's instructions on permutations and combinations being more simple and the instructions on probability problems being more useful and clear). Additionally, while the Kaplan text may be superior in offering more practice tests and practice sets, the PR online tests were graded more quickly and without my having to submit essays in emails (NB: I last used the Cracking the GRE 2013, and it seems that PR has increased their resource offerings since then). The Kaplan videos are useful for advice if one has not heard it before, but they could have been a bit more pedagogically helpful as well.

That said, the Kaplan text is--in my estimation--superior, particularly for instruction on the verbal portion of the test and on essay writing. The instructions on solving difficulties in reading comprehension were quite useful, as were those in sentence equivalent problems. What's more was that it was very helpful to see the differences between 4, 5, and 6 essays in the analytical writing section. The strategies the book gives seem to be on target. If your vocabulary is already copious, perhaps you can pass on the PR altogether, but I would recommend the two texts in conjunction if you have the financial resources (and be sure to get them far enough in advance of your tests to explore the breadth of the resources available through each).

This has to be one of the best test prep books I've come across for the GRE. I've taken the GRE before (and did well on it) but my scores just expired and I'm finally applying to grad school. I'm on a tight schedule with only a month before I take the GRE. This book makes it a lot less intimidating to jump back into the material.

Pros:
-The website registration available with this book has been great for assessing my current abilities and allowing me to focus my limited study time on areas that need improvement.

-With 6 full-length practice tests in ADDITION to the full-length assessment, I'm not worried about encountering the same questions over and over when I study.

-The step-by-step guides in each chapter and the videos online are life savers! I didn't realize how much of the GRE material I'd forgotten being out of school for the last few years.

Cons:
-Nothing yet--I'll update if I find anything.

I haven't tried the mobile app yet, but I'm looking forward to anything that makes it easier for me to study on the go. I would highly recommend this book to anyone preparing for the GRE.
