Cracking the GRE with CD-ROM, 2006 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
The sample tests and questions in this book were nothing at all like the real exam. There were a few things I learned from the book, but overall the actual exam was much more difficult. There were many math concepts on the exam that were not at all covered in the book. As I went through the exercises I also developed a false sense that I was actually ready for the exam. Needless to say, my low score on the exam, due to studying from the wrong test prep book, did not get me into grad school. Don't waste your money buying this book, or time studying from it.
I'd recommend using the Princeton Review guide along with Powerprep (which you get from ETS when you register for the GRE).It's useful, but there were 1 or 2 math concepts not covered. The vocab list is manageable, although some of the words I already knew well. Ultimately, I was pleased with my test score. The guide provides plenty of sample questions, a solid review concepts, and offers some worthwhile test-taking advice. If nothing else, it includes a timeline for studying which kept me on track.
