NOVA's GMAT preparation book is a very useful guide for overall GMAT preparation. It has very good strategies for solving GMAT problems. For Math section, the theory part is very solid with lot of examples and sample problems on each topic. It first teaches the theory, followed some relatively easy questions directly based on the preceding theory notes. It helps to practice those concepts. Then, there will be additional questions to practice the whole topic. For Verbal section, they have very good concepts and strategies on RC, CR & SC. I specially liked their Critical Reasoning part. For every section, they take you through their strategy, solve some examples using it and then make you practice more questions. Analytical Writing section is excellent with a detailed description of each style and how to approach the writing task.

This is an excellent book. I think it will put you over the top in the math section of the GMAT (the only part I studied). Many of the book's questions are brutal and, in fact, the author says that 10% of the book's questions are more difficult than any you will find on the GMAT. This will greatly increase your skills as well as confidence. I would recommend however that you also purchase Kaplan's GRE/GMAT workbook (another excellent book) to supplement Nova's. I would start with Kaplan which seems to assume less math knowledge in the reader and then move on to Nova. Nova has 22 math sections and unlike any other GMAT book that I've seen, it has an entire section on Defined Functions. I think this book will impart confidence in the test taker also. Working these problems will have you telling ETS to 'Bring it on!' This book is well worth the money!

Well, I purchasd this book a 3 weeks ago, and I think the math section is right on. HOwever, the verbal is a little different from what I learned in the ETS 10th edition, so I am not sure to rely on it for that. Other than that, I am trying to find out who else has done well studying for the exam with this book. I am hoping for the 700's.
