PowerScore GMAT Verbal Bible – New Book by PowerScore
Review of PowerScore GMAT Verbal Bible - 3 Stars out of 5
Powerscore GMAT Verbal Bible (order from Amazon) builds upon success of Powerscore Critical Reasoning Bible and Powerscore Sentence Correction Bible but with those two great books out there, this book does not add up. The only advantage I see is the Reading Comprehension section (new; there are no Powerscore books covering RC) but with only a few passages and questions, it does not justify purchasing the book. Here is a detailed analysis of the book:
Verbal Bible Advantages:
Verbal Bible Disadvantages:
The book does contain about 125 GMAT questions and 85 Mini-drills (these are non-gmat style questions but still very helpful for practicing and nailing down the strategies). Out of the 125 GMAT questions, 50 are in CR section, 8 in RC, and 77 in SC.
Alternatively, look into getting the Kaplan Verbal Workbook. It also has quality material but more practice questions. Just keep in mind that the questions overlap with the Kaplan Premier Program book.
