The book itself is fine. The math section is not better or worse that others I guess. Works fine if you are fresh out of high school and just need a refresher or to understand how to use your already acquired math skills to answer the test questions. There are a lot of things that they "suppose you know" and if you don't is very frustrating because you don't understand the problems nor the 'solved' answers provided in the book. Sometimes the way they solve the math problems is very counterintuitive.
The verbal part is very good: that makes the whole thing worth. The methodology is much better than other books and online resources to study the GRE.
If I haven't had the license issue for the online companion, I'd give this book a solid 4 stars rating. I am taking one star for the average math approach and another one for the unexplainable one year limit on the online resources.
On the other hand, I bought both books to prepare for the paper-based test I took last Saturday. I completed both printed tests on the Kaplan book and one on the Princeton to practice the timing and had very successful results. Those tests had 20 questions for each section (30 min for each of the verbal sections and 35 for each of the math sections). However, while doing the first section of the test, I realized it had 25 questions and so did the rest (with 35 min for verbal, 40 min for math). Since I wasn't prepared for those extra questions I ended up guessing, without being able to read any content, about 5-6 questions per section for three of the sections which is TERRIBLE! I only finished one in time. I realized later that it could have been my mistake because I used 2013 books and took the exam in 2012. I have no idea if it changes for next year or something. What I recommend is that if there is anyone thinking of buying or studying with these 2013 books be sure that the exam is going to be the same. The PDF "Practice Book for the Paper-based GRE Revised General Test", which can be downloaded from the ETS webpage, is exactly like the real GRE. Since it was digital, I decided to use only the printed material I had.. very bad choice.
The highest value this book provides are the practice tests which are very similar to the actual GRE test. Not only is the content of the questions the same but even the aesthetic of the computer test are identical so that there are no surprises come test day. i.e. the calculator and the way the test looks look the same so there isn't a gap between the practice tests and the actual GRE.
5 Entire Practice Tests as well as additional questions complete with full easy to understand explanations makes this a fundamental tool of someone wanting to improve their score.
While not perfect I managed to score a 162 Math and 163 Verbal with the following package:
This Kaplan Book
Captest 6 practice exams
500 practice questions from Magoosh.
In this book you will find a majority of the concepts tested on the GRE and if you work it from beginning to end you will be well prepared.
