I am returning to grad school next year after a long hiatus from any kind of formal education (I received my undergraduate degree in 1991) so although I generally have been pretty successful with standardized tests, I was a little nervous about the GRE, in particular about the quantitative analysis portion. I haven't had a math class in over 25 years, since I majored in literature and communications as an undergrad, and was in an honors curriculum which allowed me write papers about math instead of taking a "real" math class.

I took the revised GRE a few weeks ago, so I haven't received my official scores yet, but the range estimates I was given after completing the test were numbers I was happy with (750-800 verbal, 710-800 quantitative). I won't have the official scores until November. These numbers were fairly close to the practice score numbers I got taking the official ETS sample test, and a bit higher than the practice scores I got taking the Kaplan practice tests.

EDITED TO ADD that my final scores on the new scale were 168/170 verbal, 157/170 quantitative, and 5.5/6 on the analytical writing. As I said above, I am not, nor have I ever been, very good at math, so although the quantitative score is only what I'd consider on the high end of average (77th percentile), for me, this score was far beyond my original expectations, so the studying I did paid off enormously.

Here is how I studied:
1. I downloaded and took the free ETS test as a baseline. I also downloaded and studied their free math review materials.
2. Based on step one, I reviewed my options here on Amazon for supplemental study materials, and decided I wanted about two months to study.

***Updated: August 6th, 2011***
I am currently using this book so I must warn you that I do not have the complete, thorough review I will surely be giving this.

I bought this book to study for the revised GRE that begins in August 2011. So far I've read almost all of the Verbal and the Quantitative Reasoning sections, done some of the practice sets on the CD-ROM, taken a full-length test online and used other resources available online. When I first got the book, I did the paper-based practice test included in the book, so I was able to identify my strengths (verbal section) and weaknesses (math/quantitative section and analytical section) of the GRE test.

Right now, I'm very satisfied with the purchase. I've found the "Kaplan strategies" helpful and as I complete more practice sets, I get less wrong answers. This book also gives you lots of study tips for before taking the test and advice on actually taking the test.

In addition to the textbook, you get an online registration number which allows you to access 5 additional full-length practice tests (in addition to the full-length paper-based practice test) and the CD-ROM companion. The CD companion has 10 practice sets for each of the quantitative and verbal reasoning sections as well as 5 analytical essay prompts. After you finish a practice set (either on the book or the CD), you get an explanation for all the answers to clarify doubts. The explanations Kaplan gives are detailed, well-written, unlike the ones I've seen in the examples provided in the ETS website which don't always clarify the answers for me.

I got this book on Amazon because it had been cheap, only about 16 bucks. I had a Kaplan book from my roommate from 2010 that seemed good enough but I wanted an updated version that discussed the revised test. I found that the book portion was almost identical to the 2010 version except they added the revised test's new types of questions. I recognized some of the questions as having been repeated from the 2010 book. Also within the book there was not that many practice questions for each session. Once I started taking the practice sections from the CDROM I began getting frustrated, finding mistakes and inconsistencies between the question and Kaplan's detailed solution. For example, one of the quantitative comparison question was column A: y^x column B:y^(x)+1. When it came time to reviewing my solution Kaplan had column B as y^(x+1) which changes which answer is correct. Another question in the verbal section had answer choices A,B,C D,E,F, but when Kaplan wrote the solution they discussed answers A,B,C and E,F,G, they shifted the second blanks choices by and would incorrectly mark the correct answers as wrong because of it. I do not enjoy having to take extra time to double check that their solutions made sense. I do NOT recommend choosing a Kaplan book to study for the GRE. I'd recommend Nova's GRE Prep Course book instead if they are still publishing it. My other roommate had a 2006 version I used to practice for the math section, and I found it had a LOT of practice problems with good solutions.
