Review:

The authors tell you up front: "The GMAT is not easy--nor is this book." While that may seem daunting, the test is challenging for a reason, and if you want to get into the top business schools, you'll need to excel in a very competitive field. If you're willing to work hard, the GMAT Prep Course will show you the ropes and get you to score your best. Its refreshing, no-nonsense style reflects the authors' insistence that it is hard work, not tricks or insider knowledge, that brings success.

An orientation chapter sets the scene and guides you through the basics of what you'll find inside: overviews of each test section (including the essays) with lots of sample questions and in-depth analyses of correct and incorrect answers. No frills here, just lots of practice and some general help with the types of questions you should expect, such as analogies and data sufficiency. While some readers might miss the flashy design or eye-catching logos of the competitors, the authors maintain that attention and diligence are all that's needed to beat the GMAT. If you're up to the challenge, get the GMAT Prep Course and start burning the midnight oil. --Rob Lightner

Review:

This is an excellent book. I think it will put you over the top in the math section of the GMAT (the only part I studied). Many of the book's questions are brutal and, in fact, the author says that 10% of the book's questions are more difficult than any you will find on the GMAT. This will greatly increase your skills as well as confidence. I would recommend however that you also purchase Kaplan's GRE/GMAT workbook (another excellent book) to supplement Nova's. I would start with Kaplan which seems to assume less math knowledge in the reader and then move on to Nova. Nova has 22 math sections and unlike any other GMAT book that I've seen, it has an entire section on Defined Functions. I think this book will impart confidence in the test taker also. Working these problems will have you telling ETS to 'Bring it on!' This book is well worth the money! --A student
