Mit Beispielaufgaben und Erklärungen, Software simuliert Testsituation. An manchen Stellen stehen m.E. zuviel unnötige Informationen, die das Buch so dick machen. Aber sind auch einige gute Tips dabei, wie z.B. dass auf der Website alle (und wirklich alle!!!) Themen und Fragen des Analytical Writing Teils zu finden sind.

Der GRE ist schon schwer genug - da hilft es, eine Art Guide von ETS (den Machern des Tests) in der Tasche zu haben. So kann man sich sicher sein, dass man wirklich nichts Relevantes vergisst und realistische Tests am Computer (sind auf CD) üben. Inhaltlich ist es gut aufgebaut.

Ich würde jedoch noch dringend empfehlen, dass Vorbereitungsbuch von "The Princeton Review - Cracking the GRE" zu kaufen. Dieses geht nochmal etwas tiefer und bietet noch mehr Übungen - und das ist auch das wichtigste beim GRE: üben, üben und üben! Die Grundkenntnisse beherrschen ist schön und gut, aber die Fragen sind derart verzwickt, dass es sich jedes Mal wie ein neues Thema anfühlt. Daher lege ich jedem ans Herz, viele Übungen zu machen und mindestens 3 Monate vorher mit dem Lernen anzufangen. Vor allem das Vokabeln pauken hat es in sich! Viel Spaß bzw. starke Nerven!

Übrigens: es reicht vollkommen, wenn man sich die Bücher gebraucht kauft. Die Trümmer will man nach dem Test eh nie wieder sehen! ;)

HASH(0xa023c51c) von 5 Sternen Important considerations when evaluating the usefulness of this book. 28. Februar 2013
Von LotusGirl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As many other reviewers have noted, this is the only book on the market that is produced by ETS, the company that writes and administers the GRE; however, please know that this does not mean that buying this book is a no-brainer. Far from it. The book may be helpful to you in some respects, but I would never recommend purchasing only it to study for the GRE. I would buy it perhaps as a supplement to a book published by a third-party (like Barron's, the Princeton Review, Kaplan, etc) or not at all. These third party books really are likely to serve you FAR better, as I will try to explain. Here are the things I think you should consider as you decide whether to purchase this book:

1) The majority of the practice questions in this book are available for FREE on the ETS website. Just check out their "Prepare for the GRE" page for pdfs.
2) The POWERPREP II software (including two practice tests) which is contained on the disc accompanying this book is also available for FREE on the ETS website. Just check out their "Prepare for the GRE" page for a download.
3) Whether you go with the book or get it online, the POWERPREP II software is Windows/IE-compatible only. (Ridiculous.)
4) The Math Review section of this book is also available for FREE on the ETS website. Just check out their "Prepare for the GRE" page for a download.
5) Many of the other explanations and general tips contained in the book are also included in the free online materials (I think it's called the Practice Book) on the ETS website.
6) All that said, if you prefer to work on paper rather than on a PDF, and you don't want to print out a giant stack of pages, you may like the idea of having ETS' materials nicely printed and bound as they are in this book.
7) One nice thing about the fact that this book was written by ETS is that you get actual old GRE questions. ETS doesn't license its old questions, so all other books will have questions meant to closely approximate authentic GRE questions, but which never actually appeared on a GRE exam. However, since you can get most of these ETS-authentic practice questions for free, as I've explained, you still may not want to spend on this book. Plus, the questions that third-parties write are, for the most part, similar enough to real GRE questions to still be very good practice.
8) The down side (and I think you should think about this carefully) to this being written by ETS is that it, naturally, sells the "ETS-Kool-Aid" - HARD. What I mean is that other third-parties will shoot you straight because they are not invested in promoting the mystique of this exam. They will tell you, for example, the true fact that the GRE really measures your ability to do well on the GRE, whereas ETS' book will claim, as ETS of course must, that the GRE is predictive of your success in graduate school. In addition, third-party books will level with you about how the GRE is written and how it is graded and will teach you tips, tricks, techniques, and work-arounds for the GRE. ETS has to take itself and its exam very, very seriously, which is likely to just scare you and stress you out. Third-parties will level with you. (See also the next point.)
9) (This is to some degree an extension of the previous point.) The Math Review that the ETS has written (recall it is also available for free online) is very misleading in some ways. Firstly, it can be confusingly-presented for those dusting off old, unused math skills. Third-party prep books will serve you far better in explaining these concepts simply, although if you need help with very basic concepts (like long division), you may want to supplement with something like Princeton Review's Math Smart I (or maybe check out tutorials online if you want to save money). Secondly, there are some math topics covered by ETS in their materials that you are simply very unlikely to see on the actual GRE; seeing them in this book will just make you anxious. You do not need to master all the math ETS gives you in this book in order to get a great score on the math portion of the GRE (after all, you can still score in the 99th percentile of test-takers even if you get a few questions wrong on the test). ETS will make it sound like you must know inside and out all the math they give you in this book, but third-party books will be much more honest with you about which concepts you actually need to master, what short-hand tips and tricks you can use, what things you may just want to memorize outright, and what minimum understandings you can totally get by with on some of the trickier math topics that might come up on the GRE.
10) Only third-party books give you actual lists of vocab words that are the most likely to appear on the GRE. This book does not. These lists are very useful in studying for the GRE.

Some final thoughts. No book will guarantee you an awesome score on an exam. I suspect many poor reviews of various test-prep books on Amazon are likely just sour grapes. The truth, in my opinion, is that major third-party prep books are probably roughly equivalent in getting you familiar with, giving you good tips for, and getting you some practice on GRE questions. You have enough to worry about without stressing over which book to choose! Just pick up one of the major third-party books and let it be your primary study guide. Get this book, if at all, only as a supplement.

HASH(0x9ff7915c) von 5 Sternen Unrealistic expectations from the reader 31. August 2012
Von Calintz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
To make this review short I will just say that if you are an individual such as myself, who has struggled with math since grade school and are now trying to learn enough math to get a humble score on the GRE this is not the book you should be purchasing. This book assumes that you already have a decent understanding of mathematical concepts in Geometry, Algebra, and Statistics. For those of us who are majoring in social sciences or another non math related field this book will feel like it is skimming through weeks worth of math concepts on every single page.

I found it to be utterly impossible to understand many of the ideas presented in the book due to the cluttering of these concepts and marginal explanation of how they work together. I found the Princeton Review book to be much more organized and easy to follow due to my severe math deficiencies. The Princeton review does not attempt to teach you 3 years of math by giving you a extremely condensed and limited version of concepts that you barely understood the first time around. Instead its focus is on helping you simply get through the GRE. This book does not even allow you to look at the answer choices in the practice problems as A,B,C,D,E as you would have them on the GRE so it forces you to do the problems their way without actually providing you with enough explanation to understand those problems in the first place. The Princeton review embraces the idea of turning a hard algebra problem into a simple arithmetic problem by plugging in, this book does not even mention this invaluable strategy! Nor does it let you apply it because as stated previously, it does not provide you with A,B,C,D,E answer choices!

If you are someone who has done well in math in the past and just need a refresher for the GRE I recommend this book for you however, if you are like myself, an individual who has struggled with math since elementary school, avidly avoided math in college, and are now trying to pursue a graduate education in your (non math related) field then I would highly advice you to look into both the Princeton review and the GRE for Dummies 7th Edition books. Although not perfect they are much easier to understand for those of us who are dreadful at math.

HASH(0x9ff7903c) von 5 Sternen The ETS Does It Again! Sort of. Ok not really. 10. April 2013
Von Michal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As you likely know from either the title or familiarity with the ETS, this book is the Official Guide for the GRE General Test (Revised). I teach the GRE full-time and this is one of two books I require my students to purchase for two primary reasons. This is the only book made by the test-makers, so there is an extraordinarily amount of useful information here: the questions are phrased in the way that the real test phrases them, the content is fairly reflective of the real exam, and the book itself now comes with 2 paper-based and 2 computer-based versions of the test. So, in total, there are hundreds of questions to try your hand at. Secondly, each question comes with a very lengthy explanation as to why certain answers are right and often enough, why other answers are wrong.

The ETS is also kind enough to identify which questions are of what difficulty level, so you can even mark your own progress fairly well, too.

The book further comes with examples of responses to the Analytical Writing tasks, so you have a very good sense of what the ETS thinks of as "a good essay" and "a bad essay", as well.

The book is, however, fairly lacking on a number of other counts. It is not particularly useful as a stand-alone text and once you've exhausted the questions in the book, there are no other resources to use outside of it from the ETS. Additionally--and most importantly--the book lacks a functionally useful set of questions to really build on basic mathematics skills and takes for granted that test-takers will be able to perform particular operations.

My biggest gripe about the book is it's Quantitative Review (Pages 207-305), in which there are no explanations for sample problems and often, concepts are covered in ways that are actually almost unusable for the test itself. Bizarrely, in spite of the fact that the test consistently features Special Right Triangles (Pythagorean Triplets) and often requires test-takers to simplify radicals, the book makes no mention of either of these basic math concepts. These are two among many others.

Additionally, the test does not often inform students of the most efficient or effective way of working through a problem. They'll give a very accurate description of how to solve math problems in some cases, but not if it's optimal for ideal test-taking. As a prime example, there are right triangle questions featured on almost every version of the GRE and almost all of the right triangles featured have particular properties to them. But, the GRE Guide makes no mention of these properties and test-takers are left to their own devices to either figure them out or work around them in the most inefficient ways.

The book is a sort of oddity, as such: it purports to be the Official Guide of the test but it also seems purposefully left incomplete, as if the test-makers wanted to provide some help in making the test accessible, but not so much help that anyone could effectively study for it using their own materials. The cynical conclusion one might draw from this is that the ETS is heavily invested in maintaining the secrecy and mysteriousness of the test (and is also invested in test-takers re-testing) but they don't want the test to seem unduly unfair.

To improve this product, they should include more practice sets that are divided up by concept (rather than simply by difficulty) and further, they should revamp the math review, which has not changed since the good ole' days of the original GRE Guide (which was originally published over 20 years ago).

HASH(0x9ff7912c) von 5 Sternen Least terrible prep book out there 30. August 2014
Von Sarah - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
If you're going to prepare for the soul-sucking foray into standardized testing that is the GRE, this book is for you. It comes straight from ETS, the group of bitter trolls who formulate the best ways to make a 4 hour test as painful as possible, so you can count on the information being accurate to the intentionally confusing, skull-numbing material found on the real deal. The book has a sleek and shiny cover perfect for defacing with permanent markers and burns quite nicely if you decide to light it on fire in a moment of weakness. Definitely the least terrible prep book you can buy.

HASH(0x9ff7c054) von 5 Sternen WARNING WARNING BUYER BEWARE!!!! 1. September 2012
Von Mike - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
BUYER BEWARE!!!!! This is nearly the EXACT same book as Edition 1. Reading through it, the questions are ALL the same. The ONLY exception is they include one extra practice test at the end. I strongly advise you to consider another study prep if you're in the market and already have edition 1.
