Second Impression: The contents of the book look more impressive and helpful than they really are. It is deceptively full of "helpful" tips and techniques but most of them are common sense ones such as don't overwork yourself just before the test day or as silly as don't eat greasy food. It is printed on cheap recycled paper - not as bad as the one Princeton uses but nothing compared to the Kaplan's books (thought the 2003 edition of Kaplan's Guide with CD was printed on that crap too - bad choice). I personally hate recycled paper. I really do need the whiteness and cleanliness of the sheet to enjoy the book.

PROS:
1. Full of tips and explanations, often rediculous
2. Has a vocabulary list - will be helpful for international students
3. I can't really think of anthing else....

CONS:
1. Huge - 547 pages (amazon is lying, it is not 520). If you can make through the book, you are my hero - for sure not the overnight prep book.
2. Poorly structured for visual learning. The pages are messy and crammed with material making it harder to use visual memory for learning
3. NO software ??? The title says GMAT CAT blah blah blah, but there is really no CAT. There is a link to the website in the book but after 3 attempts and getting a Server 404 error - page not found, I gave up :-/
3. About 150-200 questions in the whole book and one practice test. It is really not enought for anything serious, esp since the book is so freaking huge.
