This book is horrible. On page 85, it states that a "negative x negative = negative." Yeah, let's work on the basic concepts of math here... 7 pages later, on Page 92, 7 - 2 = 2. Wow! I'm supposed to take the GMAT in 2 days, I just now discovered that I have the worst possible book. This book is AMAZING at building confidence (please pick up on my sarcasm). Another example is that the last practice test I took (yesterday) I got a 34/37 on the quantitative and a 34/41 on the verbal. Today when I took the practice test provided by GMAC I got a 27/37 and a 31/41 on the verbal. Math is by far my strongest subject, and I have continually improved my scores on the practice tests included with this book. But, as soon as I started taking the GMAC practice test I felt like I was in over my head because there was a significant number of questions that weren't even covered in this book (I'm looking at it now). Not to mention the difficulty of the questions was much harder than the ones on the McGraw-Hill practice CD. Depending on how the test goes on Friday I might be writing/calling/harassing McGraw-Hill to refund my money for the book and for the test as it seems to have completely mislead me. PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS BOOK! So, I've now taken the GMAT. I scored 80 points lower on the GMAT than on the practice tests. In my opinion, 40 points is a reasonable margin of error, 80 points is not. Using this book is like using a 9th grade math book to study for a 12th grade math test. I also contacted McGraw Hill and complained. I requested a refund, but they said no as the 30 day limit had passed. All in all, I'm out $30 for the book and $250 for the test. I am also being forced to consider taking the test again which will put me out another $250 and probably another book for another $30. Please, don't waste your money on this book.
