In my opinion Princeton drops the ball on Reading Comprehension. They do such a great job of explaining the other verbal sections, but I felt that Kaplan outdid them in this area.

There's nothing necessarily wrong with the Princeton Reading Comp section, it's just that Kaplan does a better job of explaining their strategy and then gives you about a million examples to get it ingrained into you. When is this section going to end?! Princeton has additional practice sets at the back of their book. I don't think these are very good.

They're nice, they're helpful, they're good practice That's great if you want to practice your skills over time, but it's just not an accurate representation of what the test will be like. To be fair, neither is Kaplan, but Kaplan is a bit closer because they just lump everything into one section so you are alternating between difficulties, which is slightly more true to the test, which changes difficulty depending on your performance. Princeton just doesn't cut it with the online practice material.

Besides the fact that it took me like an hour to figure out how to even get to the practice material on their website easy now Kaplan will overload you with practice material, and they really mop the floor with Princeton in that regard.

Princeton may be infinitely better for your essays, but Kaplan will really give you a workout with the amount of practice options they give you. Not a big deal at all, but the Princeton practice tests have a visually glossed up look. Kaplan's tests look exactly like the real test. Princeton's have their own look. Worth pointing out if you're going to practice only by Princeton so it doesn't throw you off.

Same basic concept, just noticeably different look in the real test.

Not the essay grading, which again is great I think Kaplan is a bit better. It's boring and it sucks. They hint at making it fancier, but don't really give you much help to do so.

They also emphasize that you should always oppose the issue presented because if you agree you won't have as interesting of an essay. They say you should make up your mind right away on your exact stance and then begin coming up with examples and narrowing it down to your top three before writing your essay; Kaplan tells you to write examples for both yes and no positions and then to decide based on your examples which is a stronger stance to take.

I prefer the Kaplan method of actually choosing if you agree or not, and it helped big time on my actual GRE issue essay.

Had I gone with Princeton and attempted to disagree I would have had a really awful essay. Overall I hesitate to recommend one book over the other. While I feel that Princeton Review does nearly everything better than Kaplan as far as the book material goes, except for Reading Comprehension, Kaplan blows Princeton out of the water with the availability of online practice material.


Kaplan seriously goes above and beyond with the amount of practice they'll give you on their website, and they ought to be highly commended for that.

Ultimately I think that having both books was really the best course of action, as Princeton will truly help you learn the material and how to do the questions, and Kaplan will help you to practice it. Several of the words did come up on the test, and I think it was very helpful to go through and learn the vocab, even words that didn't come up. Bottom line: If you rely on the Princeton book on its own you'll be in totally fine shape because they teach it so well and do have a lot of practice material I highly recommend the dual combo, and maybe even that vocab box as well.

As I said, with the combination of all three, I did extremely well on the test a few days ago. If you need to choose one, choose this one. Kaplan is mainly useful as more practice; you won't learn the material as well from it.

These books will probably still be somewhat relevant, but certain questions will be exiting and other new ones will be coming in. Thanks for reading! Dont even think about getting anything else, this is the book you need to study for the GRE. Written very honestly and frankly, and even funny at times.

The lessons are great, the tips are relevant, and there is plenty of material to prepare you for the exam. Instead of making flashcards, go to quizlet.

Their vocab section is VERY helpful, and the fact that other people have already made the entire list into online flashcards makes it even better. download this book!! So I just took the GRE this afternoon. I am quite a few years out of school and a parent to two young children so had very limited time to prep: This is the only book I bought after reading reviews of many.

The book is really good for giving you a good overview of what the test is looking for and tips on how to be a better test taker. The tips were actually techniques I had not thought of and were helpful.

The writing and verbal reviews were comprehensive and helpful. I did NOT do the vocab matching practice as it as too tedious. The math section: I don't know but I found the practice problems super frustrating. Other reviewers found mistakes, so I sort of stopped in order to not confuse myself. The math section is very helpful for reviewing the concepts, especially the geometry.

I didn't touch the full length practice tests in this book.

My findings were that the ETS verbal sections in powerprep were extremely similar to the real test. I believe the math review concepts are great but I would do practice questions elsewhere. The overall tips and techniques for approaching the verbal and the writing portions, and the verbal practice questions, as well as the math concept review do make this book worth getting.

This book is decent for the theory on taking the test by including what shortcuts exists and how to whittle down choices.

With its practice questions however the book is disappointing. I have done three sections of math so far and each one has a problem where the question and the answer key list different values. Some are simple enough to work around once you see them explained in the key i.

The book also has numerous spelling typos which while they don't detract from the content, they will make you more hesitant to trust this book as much as you would like.

They just explain how to solve the problem.

Their approach is that they will only explain what comes in the GRE. For me it's better to have a solid theoretical explanation. Overall, very good for GRE. I think it's worth the money, but to have a well-rounded GRE preparation I would suggest flashcards and to review some old algebra and geometry textbooks. I bought the Manhattan Prep flashcards, and take them everywhere I go.

Manhattan also has specialized textbooks for each section, it would be good to do this whole textbook and then strengthen your weak areas with Manhattan's. See all reviews.

As I always say that the new GRE loves to exploit this flawed approach — they know books out there encourage this short cut method and the ETS deliberately puts word in place that would catch you on the hook. I would recommend doing these exercises to kick off your preparation but do not spend more than a couple of days doing them. Plus do not expect to get any text completions and sentence equivalence questions of the difficulty level presented in this book.

Reading Comprehension Again strategies are good but the example passages are too easy. My suggestion is the same — read the strategies, practice and finish off the questions given in this book within a day or so and then move to other sources that offer comprehensions like the one on the actual GRE. Official guide is where you can find genuine passages for practice. A positive side is that one of the strategies for reading comprehensions in this book requires you to justify and eliminate incorrect answer choices.

This is a very helpful strategy when you are unable to locate the correct answer from the given options — in such a situation you can eliminate what you know is not valid to arrive at the correct answer. Quantitative If you are one of those who is very weak in math, then Princeton review is the book to start your preparation. This book does a great job in brushing up the basics although the number of practice exercise are not sufficient to consolidate the basics that you will learn in here.

For those of you out there who are only relying on this book, be wary — for it will give you a false sense of confidence. There are a few errors in this book as well — for example certain answers are marked incorrectly although their explanation are correct.

Another error is in the sentence equivalence section — this book has equivalence questions which are two sentence long whereas on the actual GRE they are only 1 sentence in length.

There are a few typos here and there as well which can frustrate a GRE aspirant. Final word: This book has good strategies for the verbal section but the quality of questions is average. The quant section is really poor and it will mislead you into taking the GRE too lightly.

If you make this book your basis for GRE preparation you may not get more than 65 percentile on the GRE which is a below par score for most of us in Pakistan.Overview Princeton review is well known for its GRE strategies. Views Total views. Total price: If you rely on the Princeton book on its own you'll be in totally fine shape because they teach it so well and do have a lot of practice material Princeton just doesn't cut it with the online practice material.

In my opinion Princeton drops the ball on Reading Comprehension.
