McGraw-Hill's GMAT with CD-ROM, 2010 Edition 1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
kurt_s More than 1 year ago
TERRIBLE! I tried taking a test on the CD ROM and at least 3 of my answers were erroneously scored by the software as incorrect; however, the verbose descriptions of the how the correct answers were to be derived would identify the answer I chose. I lost all confidence in the book's accuracy and would not spend another second reading anything more from it. The CD ROM is made by some outsourced company. I'd emailed McGraw-Hill about the problem and got some bs boiler plate about a week and a half later. The one good thing: B&N allowed me to return the book for a full refund. I'd told the clerk the problem but he said he couldn't remove the book from the shelves since McGraw-Hill owns the space. McGraw-Hill needs to recall this book but probably won't bother. Then picked up Kaplan's book and I LOVE it!
