Editorial Reviews

Review

While viewing the data that was presented by your company, I decided to order materials to prepare for the GMAT. I received the study guides of which one was the math refresher workbook. After being out of the college enviornment for over 20 years, I was amazed at how little I had retained. But, I can say without reservation the information in the math refresher workbook was vital in my grasping the materials for the GMAT. The information in the actual GMAT booklet proved invaluable. Thanks for being a provider of information that was crucial to my understanding of the GMAT. -- David F. Wagoner, Sr.

About the Author

The workbook was designed by graduates from University of Texas at Austin.

I'd recommend this book for anyone who needs a good math refresher. This book is in an easy to use format, starting with easy material and progressing to the more difficult from there. Each section contains a brief (but good) explanation followed by a fair number of practice questions. Don't look for any long-winded explanations in this book, it is a refresher, just as they say. Also, it is printed on good stock, so it holds up nicely. I took mine cross country with no problems, unlike the review books printed on newprint which didn't fare as well.
The biggest problem I encountered with this book is that it does not contain any test specific questions such as the GMAT's data sufficiency questions or the quantitative comparisons on the GRE. If you are looking for practice questions, this is not the book for you. If you want a math refresher, this is the book for you. If you are particularly strong in math, you probably won't find this book very helpful, unless you want to do basic math problems, out of test format. I used this book as a math refresher, then went on to one of the other review books for specific question practice. That combination seemed to work for me.

I am horrible at math but needed to brush up for my second shot at the GMAT. This book did an exceptional job of reintroducing math concepts I hadn't seen in years. There were plenty of practice problems with simple and practical explanations.
The first time I took the GMAT, I used Kaplan's math prep book. Although it gave me practice answering GMAT type questions, the reality was I really needed to first was brush up on my math fundamentals.
This book covers arithmatic, algebra, and geometry in 37 lessons. A great buy for anyone taking an ETS test!

I was faced with the frightening prospect of taking GREs again, some thirty years after the first time I took them, since I'm now applying to grad school for a second Master's degree. I expected that I'd have no problems with the written portion of it, but frankly the math portion terrified me.

This book provided succinct and clear explanations of the basic principles I needed to do well on the math section. I am sure I would have scored in the 10th percentile without it; with it, I got a very respectable (for a humanities major) 650.

I have since passed it along to my daughter, who was preparing for her SATs. Her comments mirrored mine. I look forward to seeing how her scores improved over her first administration of the test.

I would recommend it highly.

It has been 20 years since i got my undergrad degree. I needed the GREs to get into grad school and was told I needed a 550 on each portion. I was most worried about the math section so I bought this book. Wow. I forgot how much I had forgotten. After cruising through this book, I destroyed the math section on the GREs! There were some problems that were identical to the ones I had practiced on. My only regret...that I did not buy the similar book on the Comprehensive/English/Reading portion. While I ended up doing ok on that section, the results of this book really made a huge difference on the math portion. A great investment!

I'm a 55-year old female that has been in the banking business for 30 years. I graduated from college with a degree in math and science a long time ago. I have always wanted to get a graduate degree, but have been afraid that I would have forgotten so much. The Ultimate Math Refresher took that fear away as it was a great, fun and easy refresher for me. The language is clear and concise, and the practice sets are well designed to refresh your math skills and concepts. I couldn't have found a better step-by-step method to get up to speed for the GMAT--even though I had a Math Degree and use to teach math many years ago!

This is an excellent math refresher book! I'm a returning student and I wanted a quick and easy way to not only refresh my long-forgotten math skills but to really learn them this time around. The book covers basic arithmetic, algebra and geometry concepts which are presented in a very readable and understandable format. The sample problems and answers were also very easy to follow. I especially liked the one page summaries of the mathematic symbols and rules (I had forgotten many of these - the summary was a great resource).

I have a degree in Applied Math so I know a thing or two about the subject in this book. After flipping throught the pages, I can say that this book is a good refresher for those who took math in high school and at the beginning of their college years and now is trying to take GMAT or GRE. This book will not give you an extensive knowledge of math, but it does keep its focus on relevat topics needed to score high on GRE/GMAT.

I hated the idea of tackling math again until I found this little Math Refresher book. The book gave me the easy-to-understand brush-up that I needed and it didn't hurt a bit! For anyone who hasn't tackled math in awhile and who needs an inexpensive jump-start, this book is a great buy.
