This is a very helpful barometer of the quality of the course. Better classes are certainly a given, but this book does not have any bells and whistles. It is more of a tunnel view with the inside of a tunnel, i.e., there is no exterior view. I considered this book to be a very much of a reference in form and content. It is quite thorough and I would say it is a must for anyone who wants to do well on the GRE. I only found the vocabulary a bit dry but the content very much so. I loved learning about the exam format in a way that was clear and avoid details that may be irrelevant to the course that I took.
This book is overall not as good as the other books that I favor. This is a supplement course with covers a very limited portion of the topics. The test is very comprehensive. You have a good basic overview of topics, but do not review them until the full length course covers them.
This review is sitting at 72% and rising. If you are fine with that, then you can consider purchasing a copy. It is priced at $64.95 – not the cheapest book but a bit more expensive than what it should be.
This book can be a great companion for a correspondence course. It is thoroughly organized and nicely written. I like the emphasis on the topics, when a topic is not covered, it is encouraged for students to review the full length course.
The bar chart found in the introduction of this book looks like the online course and gives you some exciting updates that you would not get in any other course. These include the updated percentile calculator and a two-hour time indicator. It is a great feature that the course designers have included. 7211a4ac4a
