I had the revised GRE last week. I guess as most GRE takers, you want to do your best to prepare, and as ETS changed their format, you are left only with the POWERPREPP II. At this point I must say that the POWERPREPP II is an excellent preparation and you should also download all the material from the ETS website and make sure you understand all the concepts as they will be asked on the test!
On the contrary, the Kaplan Math workbook is just not good at that! It will only add to your frustration.
Firstly, it DOES NOT cover all the new additions in the revised GRE, i.e. Statistics. They just changed the name of the title!!
Secondly, it is full of errors. These include questions that suffer from ambiguity, which ETS will never pose, and just plain WRONG answers.
Thirdly, if you choose to work on the CD, you will notice typesetting errors.
Lastly, the questions are either dumb or complicated for the sake of being complicated. It looks that Kaplan did not invest a lot of their time to come up with these questions.
So why two stars and not one star? I guess there was merit in finding mistakes in Kaplan's questions.
To conclude, I would not recommend buying this!
