Study Guide Review
A good comprehensive foundation book, The Princeton Review’s Cracking the GRE 2014 offers a general overview of the test and general lessons on strategy as well as individualized tips and strategies for each section of the test. The book also includes a DVD with tutorials and advice as well as two full length tests with detailed explanations. Moreover, the book provides access to four additional online tests, downloadable study guides, and other resources.
In general, the book’s main strength lies in its explanation of the verbal section of the test. For the math section, its explanations are often too simplistic or insufficient.
Apart from its weakness in the math area, the book is well written, easy to understand and very effective at building confidence in test taking abilities. Also, if you are content with the Princeton Review’s approach, make sure to check out our reviews of the best GRE prep apps and best GRE preparation courses, which both feature offerings by this standardized testing specialist.
