After a quick search, and a little online research I selected the Kaplan GMAT Math Workbook 6th edition, because it had a good mix of what I was looking for:
1. Fairly comprehensive review of the basic math concepts needed for the GMAT
2. Structure of the book allows you to work from start to finish, building on previous skills learned
3. Sections devoted to Word problem and data sufficiency questions
4. Large number of questions to practice on
After barreling through it, in one week, I would give this book a B or B-.
It did what I needed it to do. I was not gravely disappointed and I was not amazed. Some things to note:
* There were some holes in the information covered. Not the end of the world, you can find the information it lacks and you need elsewhere... online, etc.
* The book has answers and explanations for the questions on the section tests but only has answers not explanations for the section exercises which seemed like a silly omission to me for math review workbook.
* The book has a few errors. Without noticing or recognizing these in advance could throw off someone working through the book.Read more ›
- Very short and condensed math reviews - straight to the point
- No smart-aleck advice about some stupid tricks - only math review - exactly what I needed
- Solid problems that illustrate a lot of traps and multiple ways of solving them
- Starts with the basics - arithmetic, integers, primes, etc - the stuff that anybody can uses a review of. A lot of applicants underestimate how much they forgot the basics and skim/skip them. I would not do that, and that book does not either.
- Finally, the number of questions and quizzes in this book is impressive. I am giving a short summary of some of the sections of the book and number of quizzes and test questions. Quiz questions are math only; Test questions are GMAT-type questions.
- No probability or combinations review, which would be very helpful. Get something. I bombed my probability question on the GMAT.
- I went through this book at least 3 times (helping others) and I found that solutions don't include some of the most genius ways to handle the problems. I think the authors of the questions went beyond themselves.Read more ›
The gmat is frustrating enough as it is, don't make your studying for it even more so.
I am colossally disappointed, and will be seeing if Kaplan actually will back up their promise of a refund for dissatisfied customers.
EDIT: Kaplan did indeed honor their guarantee and issued me a check for the purchase price. But, this is impractical, as I had to mail them the book, which cost half the purchase price in postage.

One of the math answers was incorrect. That was just in the first 2 chapters. The condition of the book was good for the price.Published on November 9, 2013 by Sparkle
I studied for the GMAT with 6-7 books, and this is the by far the most useless one. I am completely disappointed at it, since it did not benefit me at all. Read morePublished on December 27, 2011 by Greg

I found that the Manhattan books are better for the math part. The Kaplan GMAT Math workbook lacks of complex exercises.Published on March 6, 2011 by juco
The questions on the Kindle version are sometimes on a different page from the answer set. The example problems are also sometimes too small to read.Published on September 2, 2010 by John W. Price
