Customer Reviews

I paid less attention to the "verbal" section, but actually do not remember any gaffes there.
Dimitri Shvorob
In short, this book has so many typos and other errors that its value as a question and answer book is greatly diminished.

This book is making me more nervous for the GMAT then anything else because I have little faith in this prep guide.

Format: Paperback
I think will give Princeton Review Kudos for trying and for putting a product out that covers a big gap in materials available today. It will never replace The Official Guide for GMAT Review which contains real GMAT questions, but will provide what OG cannot - targeted practice. Unfortunatey it falls short of the Official Guide due to errors scattered throughout the book.

The book indeed contains 1,012 questions. It starts with a diagnostic test (37q and 41v questions). There are a total of 55 different "drills" targeting various interesting and often neglected areas.
The format for Math is not just standard multiple choice, but actually 50% of the quant questions are Data Sufficiency, so one can practice both questions types - PS and DS.

I wanted to second the previous poster. This book is rife with errors and typos, which is both frustrating and detrimental to one's preparation process. There are so many errors that you can't trust the "correct" answers in the back when you're checking your work - which of course defeats the entire purpose of practice exercises.

In short, use this book only as a LAST resort. The Official Guides, Kaplan, and Barrons are all of a much higher quality than the Princeton Review GMAT book.

Format: Paperback
This book looks like it was not proof read. For example, pages 346 and 347 (coordinate geometry drill) ask the question: "In the figure above..." yet there is no figure above making the questions useless. Page 195 gives the answer to question 5 as "A" but in the explanation, it notes that A is incorrect and should be marked out. These are two of about 25 errors I have found so far - I didn't start keeping track until about half way through the book.

Kaplan books have proven to be much more helpful because they explain answers and the questions better represent what you will see on the real test.

Format: Paperback
Everything's been said, but just to back up the previous reviews, the errors in this book are prevalent enough to make the entire book completely useless. It's a waste of time to burn these answers and methods into your brain when you can only be somewhat certain those answers are even correct. I'm going to try to get my money back for this book although I feel entitled to much more then just a refund, seeing as I've wasted about 3 weeks of my time-sensitive study program on this book.

Just to give a few examples, the most common errors are simple typos, answer explanations referring to the wrong question, and answers corresponding to the wrong letter such as on pg. 113, which says the answer to question #5 is D. 540,000 but in the actual question 540,000 is choice E.

Worse then those are the errors that render the question impossible to answer such as the first data sufficiency statement on question 6 on pg. 90: "Monique caught three times as many fish as Shannon, who caught half as many fish as Shannon".

The most destructive of all, however, are the answers that appear to be correct, thus prompting you to adopt the strategy used, but are actually false. I've caught several of these only after spending extra time going over something that seemed strange, which leads me to believe that there's many others I didn't actually catch that have led me to adopt eroneous strategies. An example is the explanation to question #9 ,erroneously labled as question 8, on pg. 114. I won't write the whole thing, but the answer arrived at is dependent on the statement that "There is no combination of numbers that will fit statement (2) and provide a "yes" answer though, so statement (2) is sufficient. The answer is choice (B)".

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Let it be known that I have purchased hundreds of books off Amazon and this will be my first ever review: good or bad. I'm not going to make it long which would further waste my time with this book; so here goes:

The book has enough errors to make it hard to learn which answer in the answer section corresponds to which question. Some three person questions have only two names so it makes it impossible to answer the questions.

In short, this book has so many typos and other errors that its value as a question and answer book is greatly diminished.

Also, and this was my first mental complaint, the explanations for the problems are much less helpful than other company's books I have read. So, while it shows the correct answer (hopefully) I wasn't taught anything new that might help me to solve a similar problem better or faster.

One mistake and that would be ok; 5 or more in the first 100 pages that lead to me doubting the correctness of answers is grounds for a return.

I hope my review prevents others from buying this book. I bought the book thinking that I will just go through the questions for practice to eventually be able to do very well on the real thing but this is not the answer and there are plenty of other answers (other company's books) out there.
