Study Guide Review
Update: There is a newer edition of this book.
A good comprehensive foundation book, Cracking the GRE 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 offers two full length tests with detailed explanations as well as two additional tests accessible online and video tutorials.
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.
