    GRE crash course delivers

    GRE crash course delivered as promised. Book was written in a manner that even someone who has been out of school for sometime can use with ease and comfort. Helped me to gain confidence and refreshed skills I have long ago forgotten due to lack of use. Good bargin for the price. Organized in to groupings that help you to transition from category to category. Was not to bulky I was able to bring to work and refer to it on my breaks. Will definately get on for both my niece and nephew who are entering college. Princeton review never fails to deliver, love their programs and presentation styles. Quick delivery from Barnes and Noble.

    Good if you just need a quick run though!

    The authors clearly state that this isn't for it you need a whole comprehensive review, but if you are taking the GRE in a week or so, it does offer some quick strategy tips, and a quick run down of what to expect on the test. It does help, especially in conjunction to more comprehensive reviewing.

    Ace in the hole!

    Everyone knows the GRE is a b.s. test that has nothing to do with your ability to succeed in grad school, but we have to take it anyway. Crash Course is a fast, simple read that cuts right to the chase. If you don't have time to waste re-learning middle school math and cramming pointless vocab into your head, Crash Course will give you all the other strategies you need to get inside the test-makers' heads and outwit them. These tactics for each type of question ensure you'll be able to quickly figure out the right answer, even if you don't know what the question is asking for, or, at the very least, eliminate enough choices to increase your odds at guessing. I bought this book 1 WEEK before my GRE exam and it is the only book I used (I purchased others but hated them), and I scored very high! And believe me it's not because I'm smart - 80% of the quant questions I had were incomprehensible, so I just did what CC recommended and got great results.
