This review is from: The Official Guide for GMAT Review (Paperback)
I already owned a copy of the 12th Edition Review. I was hoping the 13th Edition comes with new questions but I was very wrong. The questions were mostly identical, I was very disappointed that I basically bought the 12th Edition again with very minimal new materials. The Integrated Reasoning questions are online and you need to register with the code provided with the book.

Although the book contains hundreds of practice questions, I think most are average and lower level. It is very good in that you can practice a lot but it is also good to get other resources for practicing higher level questions.

you can get all the information for free when you register for the GMAT,

This review is from: The Official Guide for GMAT Review (Paperback)
When you register for the GMAT you get a couple practice tests and 90 practice questions with explanations. This book doesn't appear to give any unique information. If 90 problems isn't enough you can get more 400 more for $25. That's the same price as the book and the computerized practice is is a lot easier to use than flipping around in the book.
This book isn't much to help breaking down the way you should attack each type of problem. It's all practice problems and then explains (not in the best detail) why the incorrect answers are wrong. The unofficial books might give you some better information as far as what to look for when solving different problems. (?) I would strongly recommend not spending money on this book because it doesn't contain anything that the GMAT folks won't give you (included with your $250 registration fee) once you sign up to take the test.

Good but not enough. It will give you a general idea. To get a high score 660+ you will certainly need to buy individual books for each area of study. I had a collection of 10 books. Buy them USED on amazon like $8/per book. Previous edition! but worked same way

Unclear Math Explanations at times,
By Rong Yang (Los Angeles, CA USA)  See all my reviews
This review is from: The Official Guide for GMAT Review (Paperback)
I am a math tutor. I wrote a GMAT testpre book on amazon and very familiar with the test. This official guide is a good resource for tutors and testtakers. Some of the math solution explanations are unclear and hard to understand by my students, even myself. The GMAT math covers only the basic math areas with arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and word problems. It is not necessary to emphasize the ranking of difficulty on each math question, just need practice, practice, and practice.

Just took the GMAT today and could not recommend this book more. I used it in conjunction with Manhattan GMAT strategy guides (that I would totally recommend since they give you an order with which to approach these questions). It was very similar to the GMAT content in difficulty and content. On my official GMAT I had questions that were extremely similar to the ones in this book. Use it!

There are no signifficant diferences between this and the 12th edition. You could study from previous editions and complement with another book for the new section. if you don't have a previous edition then it is ok.
