Top Customer Reviews
* Probably one of the most thorough GMAT quant books though sometimes a tad over the top
* Has good coverage of exotic question types: probability, statistics, combinations, fuctnions, counting, etc
* Questions arranged in Easy, Medium, Hard sections - you can skip right away to the harder questions or vice versa
* Some strategy elements
* Diagnostic test in the book
* Data sufficiency practice (about 100 questions)
* Tons of practice questions and a fair share of hard ones
* Not a book for beginners and assumes familiarity with basic strategies and format of the test; has a potential to frustrate a person who is just getting into it
* 500+ pages - easy to get bogged down and can take quite a while to cover
* Does not point out which items are critical/most important to remember
* Structured in a slightly unorthodox fashion (pretty much starts with symbol-type questions and then jumps to Geometry)
* Does not help spot some of the easier solutions, but instead does a head-on approach (which is probably more reliable, but takes time)
* Has a few sections that may not be very important for the GMAT such as Graphs and Charts
Overall, good 500+ page math book and if nothing else, is a good collection of questions.

WARNING: the Kindle version contains many errors! The errors are OK and you figure them out after reading the problem explanations, but these errors CAN and WILL get frustrating at times. The number of errors greatly decreases towards the middle of the book. I contacted Amazon support about this issue and the support personnel told me that the errors are a publisher issue and that the issue will be escalated. Haven't really heard anything since.
With the above said, I would still highly recommend the book and even the Kindle version (that's what I used). The Kindle version is an absolute joy to use when studying from iPad.
The book's main shortcoming was the lack of tricks and shortcuts. There simply isn't time to fully solve every problem fully on the GMAT and sometimes I knew of easier methods to find the answer quickly with skills I learned with the Kaplan book.
It is really frustrating when you can't do a problem because it is poorly written. When you look at the solution it is nothing close to what you where doing because the information of the prompt was misleading.
I will keep on working with the book but in the first 2 chapters there have been at least 4 typos that completely change the meaning of a problem. For example
In a problem it says m>50 where it should be m<50 ... this is a completely different problem right there.
