Series: Barron's Gre Math Workbook. Paperback: 288 pages. Needing more practice in maths, I went with the GRE Math Workbook. It's a great idea for a book, however it is sorely lacking.

Series: Barron's Gre Math Workbook. Many of the example problems are challenging, which is good, however, some of the examples are not problems you would actually face on the GRE and this comes across as confusing.

The style of this book is great for those who enjoy workbooks. The sections are laid out quite nicely, and topics are fully explained in an easy to follow way. I recommend getting this as an extra piece of your GRE prep. The Princeton Review books give the best all around advice and test tips, and Barron's give you more of a workbook feel. Get both to be really prepared and ace the GRE!

When I bought this book I was really excited because Barron's usually has good material. After going through the problems, I realized there were barely challenging compared to Barron's New GRE 19th Edition questions.

The Math Workbook is okay. The teaching style is very much like middle school math. Certain things are not really explained at all, while other things that are absolutely a given are fully described. There are also a bunch of typo's in the book which are a little distracting, but it's obvious that they are typo's and shouldn't teach you incorrectly. I wonder who edits these books. Overall it does the job for the price.

I got it for about 5 dollars (1 dollar+4 dollars shipping)
Supper cheap, but rich in content.
I got 169/170 on my math section because of this book and Kaplan's math book.
Both great buy.

If you are like me then you are not going to purchase just one book to prepare for the GRE, but you are likely going to work through several books from a variety of companies. As I write this, I have already worked through Kaplan's GRE Premier Edition and Princeton Review's How to Crack the GRE for the general idea of the test, and now I am turning my attention to the subject specific GRE books for further refinement. Barron's GRE Math Workbook was first on my list of such books, and I am happy to report that despite a few typos this book is well worth the time and the energy to work through it.

The two general review books I mentioned above from Kaplan and Princeton Review focused mainly on how to identify trick questions or how to implement peculiar strategies, such as dumping the possible answer choices back into the question statement to find the answer, rather than satisfactorily reviewing the math you are supposed to know to solve the problems directly. The great thing about the GRE Math Workbook is that it reviews the math directly while at the same time it introduces you to problem specific tricks that will help you solve problems faster. It does this by first focusing on the straightforward way to solve certain math problems, and then it adds in the tricks once you have already reviewed the basics. At the end of each small section you are given a small quiz of about 8 fairly straightforward problems to solve. These make sure you grasp the basic math concepts. These problems are usually followed by about 10 GRE level problems that use the same math, but are now a bit trickier to solve. I have found the format works well for the most part, with the only criticisms being that some of the more obscure topics (such as permutations and combinations) were left out and that the problems as a whole seemed a bit too easy in most sections (but maybe this just means that I am getting better at solving them?).

A lot of the tricks introduced in this book are very useful. They really helped me solve certain types of problems that I was still having trouble with even after working completely through the other two books. For example, I have never seen any other book mention that you can factor an exponential number such as 10^8 into two terms such as (2x5)^8 which then distributes to (2^8)(5^8). Now that I know that this is an option I use it all the time to cancel quantitative comp questions that deal with large exponents. These problems I was really struggling with before reading this book; I used to have to resort to multiplying things out to get the answer which simply wasted a lot of precious time. Example problems always follow each new idea that is introduced, so you can immediately see how some of these strange new approaches to math can be applied to solve a GRE question.

The only major gripe is that a few typos pop up here and there throughout the book as you work through it. These are usually related to the wrong symbols being placed in between numbers, and they very rarely affect the final answers. For that reason the mistakes are usually very easy to spot, or at least they are if you are indeed merely reviewing a subject that you already have studied which I assume to be the case. They will not really confuse you much if you think about the context clues. For example, on page 24, it tells you that an example of multiplication is 3+4=12 where 3 and 4 are factors and 12 is the product. It is easy to spot that what they meant was for a multiplication sign to be between the 3 and the 4. It certainly appears sloppy whenever you find these typos, and at times it might even cause you to laugh (as was the case on page 64 where the author solved the same problem twice and got two different answers thanks to a typo in his second approach). Thankfully, the answer choices for the problem questions and problem examples appear to have been more carefully proofread. I am currently almost done working through the book (I am on pg. 202 at the moment), and so far I have only found one problem where I wasn't able to choose the right answer out of the available choices due to a typo (pg. 114, #14 should have a 3 next to the root for choice B), and I have yet to find a problem where the letter for the answer in the solutions section was wrong (though the written explanations for the answers have had a few typos here and there along the lines of those described above).

In the end the typos do spoil the fun a bit, but the math in this book is still solid and the techniques involved are useful and different enough to recommend this as a supplement for serious students who plan to work through multiple books when preparing for the GRE. I wish companies would spend more time ironing out these typos before releasing their books, but to be honest, in the time between when I started buying these cheap academic science and math help books in 2002 to the present, I have seen the number of typos in books of this type skyrocket from all the companies involved. For instance, the early Dummies books I have (such as Calculus for Dummies and Chemistry for Dummies) have very few errors in them whereas recent books I have purchased in the Dummies series (Quantum Physics and Biochemistry) are simply loaded with typos to the point where these books are unreadable at times. I don't know if it is a side effect of a situation where so many more companies are now competing with each other in the academic help book market that companies feel that they have to rush things out to get ahead of the other guy or what, but it is a little disappointing to see a great help book become merely a very good one simply because it was rushed out with a bunch of careless typos in it. Such was the case here.

I last took the GRE in college but haven't been working with numbers since then. I needed an overall review. I found the book pretty useful in reviewing the basic concepts, especially the chapter on geometry. But I have to say there are unnecessary errors in the book that can be distracting. The book doesn't cover everything and there probably isn't one GRE book that will do that.

It's pretty hard to prepare for the math section of the GRE. It helps to memorize a few formulas and methods, but the GRE test makers always add a twist to throw you off. If you have a math block to any degree, this book WILL NOT HELP YOU a lot. Try another book. I think the Princeton Review book was better because it generalized problems a little more clearly. This book had no discussion of lines and figuring y-intercept. Sounds easy until the your math block stymies you. Now, unrelated to this book, commenting on the GRE itself, if you'll excuse my diatribe (LOL), the entire GRE is a complete waste of time and a meaningless assessment tool. The reading comprehension and vocabulary expectations are ludicrous. When preparing for the reading section, make sure you memorize a list of at least 300 words from one of the preparation books. This test typifies what is wrong with academia and America -- if you'll pardon my obstreperous execration ... at the risk of being soporific (LOL). Not very dispassionate or taciturn, am I? This rancor may last a few years...just being jocose, and a bit doughty. Note: my comment is on the the pre-8/2011 GRE Barron's Math Workbook.
