The vocabulary section is excellent. The book divided the words in a pattern you are not feeling tired when learning it, and every list following a New GRE style practices. And I can tell the questions are detailed and well-designed--the correct answer is not just the words you just learned (unlike barron's.)
The writing section is a little simplified from my point of view. But it might work well on exam.
I had admitted, this book has a lot of exercises and hints, so I recommend to everyone. The price is really good for the quality of the book.
I love the list of the vocab words in the back that I can make flash cards out of.
A friend of mine recommended this book (PhD in History) and I'm glad I followed thru with her recommendation. I am planning to re-take my verbal GRE early next year.
But so far, this book is stellar. I'm actually enjoying reading it, because it's written with good humor, is easily comprehensible, and the strategies work.
I just switched to studying with this book because I was studying the Barron's book but the explanation section was seriously lacking (explanations did not go into why other answers that were attractive were wrong, they simply explained what the right words were, for example), and in frustration I tried opening up this book, which I honestly could say was the best idea I've had today.
*Note: I see now that Princeton Review's Verbal book is more focused on strategy and doesn't have nearly as many practice questions as Barron's-- so the two companies are focusing on different things-- they complement each other; just be aware that Barron's explanations can be sub-par.
On the other hand, Barron's New GRE 500 flash cards are spiffy/user-friendly and well-made, with good explanations for the math strategies!
If you're looking to get an edge on verbal in terms of strategy while actually enjoying getting better at it, I'd recommend this book!
Best wishes with studying-
