    Don't Just Rely on This

    I JUST took the Psych GRE test yesterday, so believe me when you read this review.

    During my undergrad, I did above average in my psych classes (not the best, but good enough). I took two years off, then decided to take this test. This was the only book available to me at the local Barnes, so I bought it 3 months prior to the test.

    They covered a lot of detail, and provided handy summarized charts in parts of the chapters (such as what specific neurotransmitters are associated with in terms of function and disorders). Those charts helped me solidify the facts while reviewing. I took both practice tests and did a decent job. Kaplan provided detailed answer explanations, allowing you to see what subjects you need to study more.

    I saved the practice test ETS sends you after you register for a test date for last. This test was completely different from the one Kaplan provides. The difficulty of the actual GRE questions was much greater and trickier compared to Kaplan's. There were several topics Kaplan did not go over.

    There aren't many psych GRE books available, so I opted to study the crash Psych 101 books -- Sparknotes Psych 101 helped a lot. I saw a lot of topics that I did not see on the ETS practice test or my Kaplan book on the actual test. I also recommend "50 Psychology Classics: Who We Are, How We Think, What We Do".

    Good ... but unsufficient!

    I think the book is good but the Kaplan people have to revise it and add more material in the areas of social psychology and persoanlity (i.e.: theories of aggression, affection, etc), also add material about stress, and include more on physiological psychology too.
    I planned to take the GRE Psychology and relyed on this book only. I left the ETS practice test for the last day just to see how I would do if it was the real test. I was so surprise that it had many questions of material that was not on this book. The ETS test was much harder than Kaplan's practice tests. I ended up not doing the test the next day and planned to prepare myself really nice for October with other books. I am definitely getting a current undergraduate book on Social Psychology and Personality, and one on Neurophysiology. Will also look for other review book to complete this one.
    Having said that, the material that the book does cover is well explained, with examples, graphs, charts, and helpful mnemonics.
