a. The text completion and sentence equivalence section really helped me improve my scores. The end of the book has Idioms, root lists and 1000 essential & 1000 advanced words list with illustrated usage in sentences in a catchy way like " "Cramming" vocabulary words probably won't be very efective, but studying a little every day will redound to your success", thus making the contextual use of some obscure words easier. the words they claim are the same as their flashcards, but I heard the cards also have related words, which definitely helps to remember certain words. Eg. Disingenuous = insincere, and related words are 'dissembling' and 'prevaricating'.
b.Although reading comprehension section has a lot of tips, they are good only if you can practice a lot. The practice problems on the verbal section are tougher than the ones on GRE. Definitely helpful.
c.For essay & argument writing, the Manhattan GRE gives a good explanation on how to build your arguments. Writing using the issue topic pool on the ETS website or discussing with a friend or someone in your family by picking up certain topics you are not comfortable with definitely helps . There is a compilation of some quotes by great leaders and other prominent people.
For the quantitative section I used the math review that is available for free download on the ETS website, The concepts are very well explained.
The free online practice tests definitely helped me, although I read another reviewer said it didn't; I guess it depends on each person and their individual strengths & weaknesses. I took the GRE yesterday and the online tests were equally tough as the new gre.Read more ›
Also, the vocabulary flash cards ( there are two sets and you have to buy separately) are great too really concise.I'm not a book learner usually, but I don't think I'll be needing a tutor as originally planned because these books are that easy to understand. It's annoying to spend over $100 on prep materials on top of the test, but I've looked at other books and feel that Manhattan are the best.

Great book, much better than the GRE official guide. Questions are ( I would say) 15% harder than most of those which show up on the actual GRE, so very good practice too.Published on August 16, 2013 by Amirali Najafi
I did use this set of books in conjunction with a GRE prep class. Regardless I found the books to be helpful and allowed the student to be self-sufficient and still do a good job.Published on August 13, 2013 by Michelle
You should be getting a good grade for sure. I never had a chance to study any of them :-(. If you mean to read them all, this set should be more than enough.Published on July 1, 2013 by Michelle
