Customer Reviews

The Princeton Review is making far too much money to let a heinous mistake like this book go to print.
Werebot
The answer doesn't correlate to the correct question (ie the explanation explains a completely different question) 3.
Long Ta
Overall a very disappointing book when compared to the cracking the GRE 2010 book that i bought along with this.

The intentions behind this book are very good. Sections are well laid out, and there are explanations for every answer.

BUT (and that's a big but)

There are ERRORS ABOUND! The math section is especially egregious.
1. The answers are marked with one choice, then in the explanation a completely different choice is stated correct.
2. The answer doesn't correlate to the correct question (ie the explanation explains a completely different question)
3. The answer is completely wrong.
4. The question is lacking a salient piece of information necessary to solve.
5. the typesetting is off and therefore angles are mislabeled.
6. etc and so on.

One would think that the princeton review could afford a better editor. Seriously, I'm only making one pass of this book and I've found better than 50 errors in this book. Math is my specialty, so who knows how many errors there are in the verbal section? If you're not good at math, how will you even know if you've made mistakes or not?

BTW, I did find a correction list for this book at [...] Liked the fact that this book was grouped by subject matter--made it easier to focus on what I needed. Also appreciated the assessment tests at the beginning--pointed out some weak spots I didn't know I had!! The explanations were detailed and fairly easy to follow. Plus found that this book gave me enough practice--I'm a little bit of a freak about being prepared (smile). Overall, with the correction list, thought this was a good resource...

Format: Paperback
This book provides an adequate review of GRE materials. There are more than enough questions to give you practice and it provides questions on every topic ranging from the very easy to the very difficult.

There are two primary drawbacks to using this book. (1) As the other review notes, there are a lot of errors in this book, and Princeton Review doesn't provide corrections (that I know of... I've looked). How many errors are there, you ask? There were a lot in the beginning of the math section, but then they decreased (I think... you never know really), towards the end. There are enough to irritate you.(2) The other problem is that there is only 1 "full-length" (which is not full length) practice test. You would probably want to use this book simultaneously with real GRE practice tests if you can to simulate the real thing.

In sum, this book has been helpful despite the errors, and I don't know of any other book similar to this where there are just LOTS of practice questions.

Yes the reviewers are correct about the egregious plethora of errors. But don't let that disuade you from utilizing this book. The 6 pages of 112 corrections (about a 10% error rate for those who are studying)is available on Princeton Review's web site see: [...]
If amazon removes the hyperlink just do a google search for "princeton review 1014 errata" and it should be one of the first few options.
With these 6 pages of corrections this is still a great source of GRE questions arranged, helpfully, according to subject and question type. If purchased together with their Cracking the GRE you have a great pairing to improve your aggregate GRE score. Hopefully next years edition of this book will have seen greater scrutiny, but since this doesn't help anyone now I only give it 3 stars.

I bought the book despite the review about errors, since someone provided the link to Princeton with the correction sheet. However, when I looked up the errors in the copy I recently received, they had already been corrected. So it appears that the most recent version being sent out is more up to date than previous versions. Good news.

Format: Paperback
Everyone has already shed plenty of light on the fact that this book has tons of errors, and it does.

However, I still think that it is a great resource. I couldn't find any other book that offered so many practice questions. Other books had ~500 questions. If you want to prepare by just drilling practice questions (which is what I wanted), this is the best choice out there.

The book is broken down into sections which was particularly useful in the math section. There are 36 questions just on Circles! That pretty much covers every concept about circles that the GRE will test. Also, this book had some tips and tricks that were not in Princeton Review's Cracking the GRE.

I took a diagnostic test before I studied. I used this book along with Cracking the GRE 2010 and the Kaplan Vocabulary flashcards to study and when I was done, I scored significantly better. I also scored high on the real GRE. In all, this book does have a tons of errors, but I do think that it was a valuable study tool that did help to raise my score.

I am pleased to see that I am not the only person who complains about how riddled this book is with mistakes. DO NOT purchase this book, unless of course, instead of studying for the GRE's you would like to learn how to become an editor.

Here is just one, of many examples, of flagrant mistakes made in the book:

pg. 66

Question 12 of 20

Grief: Keen

a. glee: chortle
b. jejune: blanch
c. elongated: yawn
d. genteel: fumble
e: ingenuous: deceive

listed correct answer: A

explanation on pg. 89

Make a defining sentence: Keen means to express grief [...] The best answer is choice (A) because RECOIL is what someone does in a GHASTLY stiuation

Very frustrating. Not worth valuable study time distinguishing when you are wrong, and when the book is wrong.
