Overall, this was a helpful tool for practicing for the exam. Unfortunately, the Kindle edition had a number of errors in it, which made this less useful as a tool. For example, one of the practice questions states the following - and I quote -
"When the normally (1) ______ film director was interviewed, it was only the her flow of words. Her (3) on topic of her next movie that (2) _____ that subject suggested it was an unwelcome one." Good luck filling in those blanks.
In another place, where C was clearly the correct answer, the answer key listed the correct answer as 'B,' but in the explanation it stated that 'A, B, D, and E' can be ruled out.
There are two problems with this. First, there really aren't that many questions in this book: every question that is broken takes away from the value of the book. Secondly, if you're trying to practice for the exam, training yourself to second-guess the exam questions ("Is this supposed to say...?") is counter-productive.
I got some use out of this, but just a quick review of the Kindle edition by someone at ETS could have made this more useful.
This math book is invaluable for one major reason: there are 150 real GRE questions inside of it. Real questions! Why am I so worked up about them? Well, ETS has been stingy so far in providing GRE practice material. Now, I and you have more ways to get used to the real test. Careful analysis of and practice with these questions helps, and I'll be using them with all my GRE students. This book also includes strategies that ETS hasn't published before - and it tells you which questions the strategies work on. This is great and unprecedented. For more complete technique, you'll probably want to check out the Manhattan Prep math guides.
Sidebar: hey, Vince - don't other companies publish GRE practice problems? Yes, they do - but they're pretty much worthless compared to the real thing. Even Manhattan Prep (which I like a lot) doesn't really write realistic math questions (and definitely not verbal questions). Don't even get me started on Kaplan...
So, I urge you to practice with and analyze these authentic questions. Carefully reviewing the concepts tested and figuring out what techniques work best will make you much better at quantitative reasoning if you invest the time.
