4.0 out of 5 stars Great Basics Review but Could be Better/Improved 13 Sep 2013
By GMAT Club (Expert) - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I got 99th percentile on my GMAT 750(49, 42) and i used 3 books: this one, Kaplan's book with CD and Verbal Workbook. I had access to PR book and GMAT Prep, but I did only tests from those. I found Kaplan's materials of quality and difficulty. Some whine that Kaplan is too hard, but that's good - if you can handle Kaplan, you can handle the GMAT. Please see the section at the very bottom of the review - I have included a list of my favorite problems from this book - those are the most fun!

~~~ PROS: ~~~
- Condensed math concept review - straight to the point
- No smart-aleck advice about some stupid tricks - only math review - exactly what I needed
- Solid problems that illustrate a lot of traps and multiple ways of solving them
- Starts with the basics - arithmetic, integers, primes, etc - the stuff that anybody can uses a review of. A lot of applicants underestimate how much they forgot the basics and skim/skip them. I would not do that, and that book does not either.
- Finally, the number of questions and quizzes in this book is impressive. I am giving a short summary of some of the sections of the book and number of quizzes and test questions. Quiz questions are math only; Test questions are GMAT-type questions.

~~~ CONS: ~~~
- No probability or combinations review, which would be very helpful. Get something. I bombed my probability question on the GMAT.
- I went through this book at least 3 times (helping others) and I found that solutions don't include some of the most genius ways to handle the problems. I think the authors of the questions went beyond themselves.
- Errors (even though this is the 6th edition and it barely changed compared to the 1st and 2nd, there are a few typos and just careless errors - it's a shame)
- Not as thorough as the MGMAT guides (those cover more topics in-depth and perhpas a wider area). Also, if you are rusty with math (really rusty), you may want to get the Kaplan Math Foundations or Foundations of GMAT Math by Manhattan GMAT.

--- PREVIOUS EDITION ---
The changes in this edition are very minor and you can easily purchase the previous edition if the books are cheap enough (often for a fraction of the cost). The books are 99.9% the same with several problematic questions replaced (a few of the advanced questions)

Arithmetic
-Number operations (15 quiz questions and 15 test questions)
-Number properties (15, 19)
-Averages (10, 19)
-Ratios (10, 24)
-Percents (25, 25)
-Powers and Roots (12, 17)

Algebra
-Level One (20, 26)
-Level Two (15, 15)

Word Problems
-Level One (10, 26)
-Level Two (37)
-Test (40)

Geometry
-Lines (6, 14)
-Triangles (16, 21)

-Quadrilaterals (15, 19)
-Circles (19, 13)
-Multiple Figures (4, 15)
-Solids (6, 8)

Data Sufficiency
-Test 1 (25)
-Test 2 (25)

~~~ HARD & INTERESTING QUESTIONS ~~~

Also, here is the list of the Most Interesting GMAT questions from this book (some are hard and others require an unusual approach) - make sure you can answer every one of them and know how to solve them by heart:
Number properties test: 8, 13, 14, 17, 19
Averages test: 4, 6
Ratios: 22
Percents: 4, 7, 8, 22
Powers and Roots: 5, 12
Algebra test 2: 2, 6
Basic Word Problem Exercise (p. 131): 6, 8, 9
Word Problems Test 1: 4, 19, 24
Percents, Ratios, and Rates: 34
General WP Test: 31, 35, 40
Geometry
Triangles Exercise: 7, 11
Triangles Test: 2, 15, 18
Quadraliterals and other polygons: 14, 16, 17
Circles: 2, 5, 10
Multiple Figures: 2, 6, 9, 14
Solids: 5
DS1: 12, 14, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 22, 24
DS2: 3, 7, 9, 10, 15, 21, 23, 24

~~~ WHY ONLY 4 STARS? ~~~
1. No significant updates over the years. This book has remained virtually unchanged since the second edition (for the last 8 years). You are welcome to purchase any of the previous editions to have the same effect.
2. It is a good/great book but there are now other great books out there (MGMAT Guides, Veritas Prep Guides) that give this book a run for its money

Finally, please make sure you have a copy of the Official Guide for the GMAT (OG) - if you have not discovered it, I highly recommend you get yoruself a copy as it is published by GMAC and contains 900 official GMAT Questions.

~~~ ERRORS ~~~
So far, I have not discovered any errors. I am sure some will surface as I have not seen a book yet without any. When I find any, I will list them on this page. A number of the previous edition errors and issues with questions having unclear setup have been resolved.

Let me know if you have any questions - I reply to comments!

Good Luck on the GMAT

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have book! 15 Aug 2013
By Mariam - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I've always appreciated books for self-study. If you are that type, you'll definitely need this book!
To the best of my knowledge, the book includes everything necessary to get ready for GMAT.
The book is a perfect guide, it teaches you different topics from arithmetics, algebra and geometry, but make sure you have other sources too in order to exercise as long as it is not so overloaded with practical exercises.

I will highly recommend Kaplam GMAT Math Workbook (approximately 300 pages!) to self-studyers!

1.0 out of 5 stars Very vague 21 Oct 2013
By Mallory Blakesslee - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I would not recommend this book to anyone who has been out of high school for more than a year. It only gives 2-3 pages of explanation on any one topic and most of the questions in the tests are not covered at all in the material. The tests do have explanations to their answers but the exercises in the book do not. It is not helpful. It is an extremely frustrating book and I'm regretting spending money on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! 30 May 2013
By santiago - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
It explains all the basic rules. It has about 20 practice question per topic (16 to different topics) in the math review section. It also has about a 100 general or "Test" questions between problem solving and data sufficiency.

I found this book really useful!

Manhattan GMAT is way better explaining the Verbal Section
