Liked- Started at the very basics and worked your way up.
Disliked- Didn't explain all of the problems. If you got them wrong you had to figure why yourself (typical math book skipping steps) and there were a lot of mistakes in the book
Overall, if you have forgotten everything you learned in 7th and 8th grade math get this guide it will really help you prepare for the GRE's
I was a horrible math student in High School and going to Grad. School more than fifteen years after completing my undergrad education where math was not a huge part of the program (I am a musician) meant that I pretty much had to start over from scratch with math to prepare for the GRE. Now, I will say that this book was good at taking things from the beginning and I did score much better than I would have had I not prepared at all. Basically, I went through this book three times cover to cover to prepare for the Math portion of the test. However I just took the GRE (November 2009) and found that at least a quarter of the questions I was given were of a kind the likes of which I had never seen before. Questions involving stuff not covered at all in this book. I think that this book just didn't get advanced enough to prepare adequately the GRE. I'm happy that thanks to some lucky guesses I was able to score in the 73 percentile on the test (which is what I was hoping for) but if you are looking to score really highly on the Math portion of the GRE than my advice for you is to look elsewhere. One final thing that I'd like to add about this book is that it had a lot of typos. I guess that if you understand the material enough to catch the typos than you're doing well but it's still frustrating and doesn't inspire confidence in the idea that this is a good use of your time studying for such an important test. Best of luck to you all with you GRE exams!
Overall, a great review book. I will keep this book (and not resell it, lol) because I feel, in the future, if I ever need a refresher, this book will be it.
Although this book does not cover other topics (combinations / permutations), it is still a good resource to refresh your memory.
I think that proper exam preparation requires far more than a single resource. This is a good book to give you the fundamentals but you preparation should definitely consist of more than one review guide and certainly a ton of other resources for "reputable" problems - not simple ones, etc.
