Book Overview

The GRE Graduate Record Exam is changing substantially starting in August 2011, and Barron's is now ready with a thoroughly revised test prep manual that reflects the new exam's content. Although the GRE's Analytical Writing section remains essentially unchanged, new question types appear in both the GRE's Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning sections, and the model tests in Barron's brand-new 19th edition reflect these changes: Verbal Reasoning--...

Excellent GRE book for study

I have referred this book as a main GRE book for my December 2009 exam. I found that this is the best book for both Verbal and Quantitative section. Everything explained in this book is in plain english(no gibberish). I attempted for GRE for the second time. Firt time I refered all Kaplan books for GRE exam in May/Jun 2009. This (second time), I had preparation time of 50 days and I refered only this book and found much helpful in understading most of maths problem(explained in detail). Compare to Kaplan's math section, Barrons has simple and straightforward method to solve and complicated math questions. I was very much comfortable reading Barron's book compared to Kaplan. Kaplan has very impressive Flash cards.I had refered Kaplan's Flash cards, ETS GRE General test book(for practice questions) along with above book. I will recommend this book to everyone for good score in GRE. Using this book I scored 220 points more on my second attempt. Pros: 1. Math tactics explained very well...upto the point. 2. Verbal analogies and antonyms SIMILAR to GRE exam Cons: 1. Analytical section not quite explanatory. No sample Essays given 2. No explanation of solutions of the verbal section.They have huge list of vacabulary to refer. Inspite of cons book is very good to improve in verbal and quantitative section.

Baron's GRE

A very good resource for those interested in passing. Highly recommend. I will give it to my grand-daughter after I finish using it.

GRE! Read for Quick Tps on Studying.

I studied for the GREs from October 1st 2007 to November 17th 2007 (the day of my exam). Though some would call me crazy with such a short time studying; I studied nearly everyday, all day long (at least 10 hours a day). This book is perfect and is more or less all you need to study the GREs. The books organization is spot on, and I suggest following it as it is. Like any diet or exercise program, as long as you follow your plan (in this case the book's plan) you will unquestionably see satisfying results in the end. I also suggest to make sure that you take the Diagnostic test at the beginning of the book in order to make sure, in the very beginning of your studies, what is most necessary for you to study and concentrate on. I didn't realize what the diagnostic test was for and did not take it until midway through my studies. A mistake. For the Verbal, I studied (with flash cards and all) the 333 High Frequency Word List. Do the same, a surprising number of these words were indeed on the GRE. I began to go through the 3,500-Word master list, but with time constraints soon realized that this would be ineffective. The math section, in this book, is also organized quite well. Follow it. Like math we learned as secondary school students, it builds and builds to an end which is a complication of every thing previously learned. Lastly, as many out there are concerned mostly with the math I suggest a supplementary book on the math alone. I basically used all of the sample problems in this book and would have easily done more if I had more time. I do wish I took at least another month to study for this exam. While I am fairly happy with my GRE score, with that extra month I would have had that slightly extra edge in my graduate school applications. This book is sure to help. Goodluck.

Perhaps the best book for the GRE!

As a former graduate student and someone who has already taken the GRE before, several times, I went into preparing for the GRE in a way that a former prisoner goes back into prison. Those who have taken the test before will understand what I mean. The GRE forces some people, those who want to do particularly well on the test, to kill their social life and become prisoners in their homes studying for this test every single day! I want to wholeheartedly and without reservations recommend the Barron's GRE book, as it takes the time to cover the subject matter at a degree which surpasses any $1000 Kaplan class you will ever take. It forces you to analyze the questions, analyze your own approach/method, and to truly (I cannot stress this enough) LEARN (not just regurgitate, my friend) the material need for success on the GRE. The GRE is not a test of regurgitation, but a test of your ability to problem solve, and problem solve well. Match this book with the Princeton review 2008 or 2007 book and you will be golden. Nothing else is needed. You will spend roughly $40 and will accomplish much more than others who have chose to take the expensive GRE courses.

Great Help

I found this Barron's book a much better help than any other GRE book I used or looked at (esp the Priceton Review book - very bad). This book has a huge number of example problems and exercises (and practice tests) that are really beneficial. The tips about each section of the test are helpful, informative, and well explained. The vocab section is tremendous - with many many words and quizzes to test yourself. If you are considering a GRE study book, I highly recommend this one as the only one you'd need.
