Kaplan’s GRE Math Workbook is one of the most comprehensive study guides out there, and it could be essential for your GRE success.
Yes, everybody says that their book/guide/system is the most complete, but Kaplan’s truly is. With over 525 pages and literally hundreds of GRE-like practice questions, drills and exercises, this book will prepare you for the Math section of your GRE in a way that will satisfy your scoring goals and expectations.
What makes it different?
The latest edition is the 9th in the series, which is itself a testament to the number of people who have demanded this essential guide over the years. This edition of the workbook is the most impressive yet. It offers:
6 full-length Math practice tests
A thorough review of math concepts for all four math sections
A diagnostic tool to help you understand what you could improve on
A set of hand-picked, efficient strategies for addressing all math questions with ease and accuracy
Who’s it for?
Due to the breadth and scope of its coverage of every major math topic, this comprehensive guide is suitable both for students wishing to get that extra boost to their overall GRE score, and those students with substantial gaps in their GRE-level math knowledge who are seeing or practicing many GRE math concepts for the first time in their lives.
Can I use just this book for my GRE prep?
It depends. But do note this. For each topic, you’re presented with several questions to solve so by the time you’re done practicing with the book, you’ll at least have a good idea of what would be expected of you come test day.
Each topic is covered in detail, so even if you have gaps you will be able to keep up with the challenging questions of the GRE.
If you’re already good at the Math section, this book will probably feel too easy and may not be a challenge for you. However, it could also be a good review tool for someone who is coming back to higher education and needs a thorough reminder of what they already know.
That said, if you’re aiming for a really impressive GRE score, it’d be wise to complement your studying with additional full-length practice questions. This is what will ultimately help you truly master the strategies that this book offers.
