The explanations provided at the end are really good and for any beginner, buying an official guide is better than buying 10 other guides from sources other than GMAC.
The questions in this guide are suitable for all levels, and students can work their way through the levels thus building skills along the way.
Most students( if not all) strive for that elusive 700+ score and it is common knowledge that the gradient varies more for verbal than for quant. You can check out scale conversion matrices to verify the claim.
The greatest strength of this guide is, for reasons stated above, its greatest flaw.
What you get in the form of practice problems are totally different from the monster that you face once you get your performance going during the actual test. A collection of questions of increasing difficulty is different from a barrage of 99%ile questions and that also in an unpredictable order.
There are several ways to counter what I have just stated, and I guess the book serves its purpose, otherwise it must have had a name like 'Toppers guide to Verbal'.
The message is clear. If you are looking for a book to help you brush up your basics, this is the book for you.
If you are already in the region of 40, and looking to increase your score by 5 - 8 points, this book will not help you.
BUY THIS BOOK IF:
1. You are studying using Manhattan GMAT books (there are only a few practice questions in the books and for additional practice,they refer to questions in the OG 12 and this book)
2. You need more practice with average and low difficulty verbal questions
DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK IF:
- You have OG 10 (there is quite a bit of overlap)
- You have used or were planning to use power prep (previous version of the GMAT prep software has quite a bit of overlap too)
- You have purchased paper GMAT tests from GMAC (overlap again)
- You have not gone through OG 12 yet

Non do il massimo perchè a mio avviso possono fare ancora meglio e integrarlo con più practice tests.
