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:

Excellent resource for math foundation If you have been away from academia for awhile, this book is an excellent resource for math review. Nova really breaks it down with excellent explanations, examples, and practice problems. --M. Fredricks

Very useful for tips, tricks and strategies for GMAT. Nova's GMAT preparation book is a very useful guide for overall GMAT preparation. It has very good strategies for solving GMAT problems. For the Math section, the theory part is very solid with lot of examples and sample problems on each topic. It first teaches the theory, followed some relatively easy questions directly based on the preceding theory notes. It helps to practice those concepts. Then, there will be additional questions to practice the whole topic. For the Verbal section, they have very good concepts and strategies on RC, CR & SC. I specially liked their Critical Reasoning part. For every section, they take you through their strategy, solve some examples using it and then make you practice more questions. Analytical Writing section is excellent with a detailed description of each style and how to approach the writing task. --Kanishk Rastogi

The best! Highly Recommended. I have taken the GMAT twice. The first time I used the Barron's book and the Petersons CD and scored a 40% on math, 75% on verbal. This score was unacceptable. Nova was Far and away the best book. After reading reviews on various sites, everyone recommended Kaplan and Princeton Review, but no one mentioned this book. I found it by chance at the local book store. It covered everything on math and had exceptional, comprehensive explanations. Also, the drills after all chapters were very, very, very helpful. After doing all drills in Nova, the commonly considered difficult practice questions in Kaplan were almost a joke. I would recommend to anyone this book. I recently took the test again and got a 96% in verbal, 60% in math. --mak17f
