I bought this book primarily because of the online practice material only to find out that it's quite limited.

It shows 10 practice sets for each quantitative and verbal sections in addition to the 5 practice tests. Unfortunately only 2 of the practice sets in each quantitative and verbal sections are actually available. I'm told that these other sets are "being added and will be available sometime in the future", but I'm still very disappointed.

Overall, the material can probably help increase a GRE score, but I was hoping for more accessible material that what's provided...

The claim of "online access to 900+ questions" is flatly false. Basic Math: 100 questions per practice test X 5 + 20 questions per practice "set" X 4 = 580 available practice questions.

This edition is published on June 5, 2012, and I ordered it on the same day because I attended the Kaplan Free GRE Practice Test that afternoon and the speaker announced this new edition. So I purchased it for $20 with Amazon Prime because I want the access for the MSTs and verbal practice test.

***It arrived today and I figure something relatively interesting.

1. This 2013 Premier has no difference whatsoever comparing to 2011-2012 Premier Edition. The table of contents and pages are exactly the same. For instance, if I flip to P.248 in 2011-2012 Premier, it is chapter 13 talking about the kaplan method for data interpretation; and if I flip to the same page in 2013 Premier, SAME! I tried several pages as well and they are all the same.

2. After flipping to the 1st page from the book cover, I figured out that I dont really need to buy this book because all you need is a online book link, a keyword and a kaplan online account. If you have 2011-2012 Premier, just use the same keyword and you will have free access to all features in the 2013 Premier "AND" GRE Strategies, Practice and Review 2013, including the MST.

3. Good thing it cost $20 to own for a 575 pages book unlike those college student rip off textbooks or course readers that cost over $100 - $200 that you don't even know if you will be flipping them at all. I know I purchased $120 hardcover textbook that the professor does not require us to know anything about it because the exam is directly from the lecture notes and worksheet. The textbook itself is just supplemental for your reference.

4. I dont think it is worth it signing up for those on-site classes for $600 just for GRE, even the just the Verbal (4 classes) by itself will not help too much.

You do NOT get 10 practice sets for each section.
You get 2 that work for each section. The rest have problems loading images, answers, and questions.
I've tried e-mailing Tech Support a couple times (5 days ago, 2 days ago), but have received no replies.

So I got some strategies, 2 practice sets for each section, and a diagnostic test.

The answers are very thorough, but it's not much use when the questions themselves are too easy.
I haven't taken the test yet, but I just bought Barron's math book, and Kaplan's math section looks ridiculous in comparison.

-----

Update: After this review was posted, Kaplan sent me an e-mail informing me that they had reset all my practice tests. They also gave me a question bank of 2500 free questions. The question bank was convenient and let me generate customized tests where I could select the type, difficulty, and number of questions I wanted. I've updated this from a 2 to a 3.

Kaplan is interested in one thing and one thing only, making as much money as possible using as little effort as possible. This book, I kid you not, is identical page by page to the 2011-2012 edition. Do not waste your money. Buy the 2011-12 edition for cheap and forget this 2013 gimmick. It doesn't even offer as much online material as the 2012 edition! The only thing that I could find potentially beneficial about this version is that it claims to grant you "computer adapted tests" (like the ones on the real thing) online....but given its similarity to the 2011-2012 edition thus far I would not be surprised if the online tests are identical too. But, admittedly, I have yet to take them. Overall I have been quite displeased with Kaplan products. This book is a flagrant example of this company milks a product for all its got. Don't be fooled.

I took the GRE a few years ago right before the revision without studying and scored a 1210 (710 math (64 percentile), 500 verbal (57 percentile). I thought I could do better, so when I decided to apply to grad school this upcoming fall I made the effort to study for the GRE. I used this book as well as the online tests included with the book and scored a 163 on the math (87 percentile) and 161 verbal (87 percentile) which is equivalent to a 780 on math and 620 on the verbal for a total score of 1400 on the old scoring scale. For reference, when I took the first GRE, I was 2 years removed from finishing my undergrad in Civil Engineering. When I took it the 2nd time, it had been more than 4 years since I was in college, so I was really rusty both times. The book is really easy to read through, I recommend going through it and reading the sections you really need to focus on. Do the paper practice sessions in the book and follow up with the online tests. I think I completed 3 complete practice tests online before I took the real thing. I studied for about 6 weeks for about 5-6 hours a week. So it wasn't a lot of effort for such a massive improvement. Do yourself a favor and buy the book, study, and do well on the tests.
