Kaplan's book with CD and Verbal Workbook. I had access to PR book and PP, 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 old good GMAT.

My favorite things about this book:

- Very short and condensed math reviews - straight to the point

- No smart-aleck advice about some stupid tricks - only math review - exactly what I needed

- Fabulous 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.

Arithmetic

-Number operations (15 quiz questoins 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)

CONS:

- 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.

- No probability or combinations review, which would be very helpful. Get something. I bombed my probability question on the GMAT.
