The Princeton Review realizes that acing the GRE is very different from getting straight As in school. The Princeton Review doesn't try to teach students everything there is to know about mathematics and analytic thinking--only the techniques they'll need to score higher on the exam. "There's a big difference. In Cracking the GRE, The Princeton Review will teach test takers how to think like the test makers and:
- Eliminate answer choices that look right but are planted to fool test takers
- Raise scores by mastering the vocabulary words found most often on the GRE
- Use Process of Elimination, Ballparking, and Aggressive Guessing to ace the exam
- Master even the toughest sections: Analogies, Antonyms, Arguments, Games, and more
** This book gives readers 180 practice test questions covering each section of the exam. Plus, The Princeton Review will show readers how to go online and take 4 full-length simulated GRE exams with instant score analysis. All of The Princeton Review's practice questions are just like the ones test takers will see on the actual GRE, and The Princeton Review fully explains every solution.

Review: Cracking the GRE, 2007 Edition (Graduate School Test Preparation)

User Review  - Leanna Aker - Goodreads

Can't recommend this prep book (current 2012 version) for those looking to take the GRE. This is a no-nonsense, "how do I outwit this test" kind of book. Practice items, explanations, strategies..... good stuff. Read full review
