4.0 étoiles sur 5 Not perfect, but a solid choice 3 juin 2014
Par Vince Kotchian - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I review a lot of GRE books since I'm a GRE tutor and have been for several years. This one is a good choice if you only buy one supplement to ETS's Official Guide to the GRE (which I hope you have). Several instances of bad advice occur, and the practice question/test quality is average, but overall, I like the book.

Good stuff:

- test taking advice and techniques are largely useful. In particular, I like the advice to "walk away" if you're stuck. (I picture a helpful friend trying to help you avoid a fight: "Just walk away, man! It's not worth it!")
- the book covers most of what you'll need for math concepts and all of the verbal concepts
- certain areas, like the coverage of critical reasoning, are better than the competition

Not-so-good stuff:

- like most Princeton Review books, this one implies that the GRE is a silly test and that it's your enemy. But purporting that the GRE "just measures your ability to take the GRE" is pandering. Don't believe it. The test measures a lot of different skills that are worthwhile: vocab, reading comprehension, critical thinking, logic, adaptability, prioritization, etc. But it probably sells more books to paint the test as a bogeyman.
- in that same vein, the book also says the test should be prepared for "for 4-12 weeks". That advice combined with my above complaint might dissuade you from achieving mastery of the concepts. If you want a score that reflects MASTERY as opposed to a decent score, you'll need more time and more than this book (unless you're already really good at this stuff)
- essay advice is on the light and fluffy side
- practice questions and tests are less complex and easier than the real GRE (this is a pervasive problem in the test-prep industry, though)

Remember that knowing a concept vs. mastering a concept are two different things. If you merely know a math concept, for example, you'll get the question that tests it right if you recognize the concept. But the GRE is good at disguising concepts. Overall, this book has a lot going for it, and if you consider the above disadvantages, it's a good buy.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is all you need 24 août 2014

Dont even think about getting anything else, this is the book you need to study for the GRE. Written very honestly and frankly, and even funny at times. (READ CHAPTER ONE--DO NOT JUST SKIP TO THE REVIEW QUESTIONS, IT WAS VERY HELPFUL!!!) The lessons are great, the tips are relevant, and there is plenty of material to prepare you for the exam. Instead of making flashcards, go to quizlet.com and search for online flash cards that have already been made by someone else. Their vocab section is VERY helpful, and the fact that other people have already made the entire list into online flashcards makes it even better. Buy this book!!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Helpful, but some elements of execution were a bit confusing for me 3 septembre 2014
Par Garrett Zecker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This was a helpful and accessible book to help study for the revised GRE general exam.

There are four practice tests within its pages, and plenty of exercises and strategic study and test taking practice and skills that will help with many aspects of the test that are difficult. I found the strategies in the ENGLISH/VERBAL section to be very helpful. I found some of the strategies in the MATH/QUANTITATIVE section to be helpful. The things in the quantitative that I found to be not helpful has to do with the way the skills were being taught. What was most confusing was that I had been taught all of this material in grade school, and found the strategies to actually do the opposite of help me on my test.

I have some data to share about the preliminary scores I got when I took it. First, I will be applying to PhD programs in literature, and this book is only helpful to do well on the test and does not reflect my skills in anything but preparing for the test.

Preliminary results at the exam were
VERB 157/170
QUAN 144/170
WRITING 96th %ile

I thought both scores were better than if I had not done any preparation.

There was another student I spoke with that prepared using MAGOOSH, and he was applying to medical schools. This is what he got:
VERB 152/170
QUAN 157/170

I think depending on your skill level and the time that you put into preparing for the exam really depends on what you get out of it and how you do. It really just measures how you do on the test, and the test has a lot of tricks on it that this book helped to steer me in the right direction for. I am happy that I used it, and I plan on donating it to my public library now that I am done.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Best GRE study Guide. Period. 23 septembre 2014
Par Karl Taht - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
What an amazing prep book! My favorite thing about this book is how fun it is to read. The author writes as if they are sitting there with you, and often pokes fun at the GRE itself. Keeps the mood light and makes it possible to study for hours on end. Excellent practice questions scattered throughout the book as well as great full length exams. I feel like 5 stars isn't enough!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The tricks in this book are highly worth it 2 décembre 2014
Par Bio Student - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I would have given this book 5 stars if it would have explained some of the math problems with a little more detail. I felt that, as someone who is not particularly gifted at math, some of the explanations were a little simplistic and assumed that you know a lot about what they're talking about already. However, in general the book was super well explained, it is full of easy tricks and shortcuts that are extremely useful, and over all I am so glad I used it to study for the GRE. Some of the verbal questions may have had me stumped in the past, thinking that there could be 2-3 possible good answers, but thanks to the tricks in this book I kept them in mind and suddenly those problems were crystal clear.

I just took it this morning and thanks to the concepts in this book I got an average-good score in the quantitative section (which for me is great!), a nearly perfect score on the verbal, and probably an almost perfect score on the essays as well.
