Cracking the GMAT with CD-ROM (2003)by Geoff Martz, Adam Robinson
The Princeton Review realizes that acing the GMAT is very different from getting straight As in school. The Princeton Review doesn't try to teach students everything there is to know about math and English—only the techniques they'll need to score higher on the exam. There's a big difference. In Cracking the GMAT, The Princeton Review will teach test takers how to think like the test makers and:
• Eliminate answer choices that look right but are planted to fool you
• Raise your score by practicing with our GMAT Pre-Diagnostic Test, Scoring Guide and Explanations
• Use process of elimination to solve tough data sufficiency problems
• Master even the toughest sections: Reading Comprehension, Sentence Correction, Data Sufficiency, Critical Reasoning, and more
** Study the techniques and strategies in this book, and then perfect skills on more than 155 practice questions inside. The Princeton Review also gives readers 4 full-length simulated GMAT exams on CD-ROM with instant score reporting. Practice test questions are just like the ones test takers will see on the actual GMAT, and The Princeton Review fully explains every solution.

While you have to have some basic knowledge of the material tested by the GMAT, this guide will give you some really good tips for scoring well on the test. After studying the text for about 2 weeks and taking a couple of the practice exams (it gives you 4 full exams on the CD-ROM), I had a general idea of my scoring range. When I took the GMAT, I finished the test over 30 minutes early and scored what I needed to get into grad school. The only thing I found wrong with the current book was some incorrect answers on the sample questions, though none on the tests themselves.
I have no idea how I would have done were it not for this book, but I am certain my score wouldn't have been nearly as high as it was without this book. It teaches you the pitfalls of the GMAT and provides you with several computer based workouts and sample exams with scoring to track your progress. When I took the actual exam nothing was a surprise to me. I highly recc. this book as a GMAT study guide. Forget those silly and over-priced classes!
