GMAT scores are an important part of any graduate business-school application, so you need to perform well. Suzee Vlk, long time test-prep specialist and author of several Dummies books, can help. The GMAT for Dummies is packed with useful information and strategies to help you prepare for the test. The book includes advice on how to use the book efficiently (Vlk estimates you'll need 28 hours to work through it), review chapters for all three sections of the exam, and two complete practice exams. Two chapters focusing on the analytical writing assessment portion of the exam will help you write effective essays--and remind you that schools differ regarding the importance of this section. Vlk also offers special advice for "computer illiterates" worried about taking this computer-based exam. In familiar Dummies style, Vlk includes a handy tear-out "Quick Reference Card" with a summary of the most important information and a "Part of Tens" section with "10 Dumb Things You Can Do to Mess Up Your GMAT" and 10 relaxation techniques to use before and during the exam. With its witty writing and helpful icons in the margins pointing out important information, The GMAT for Dummies makes test preparation easy and relatively painless. --C.B. Delaney
Summary: scared of the GMAT? good book to break you in
The GMAT prep books can be overwhelming, especially for those of us who have been out of college more than 5 years! I tried starting w/ the OG and my moral was crushed! This "dummies" book, like all "dummies" books is very straightforward and simply written. Which is a good thing! If you have the luxury of having at least 2 months to study and therefore have the time to work through this book, invest in it! it is a good book to start with to not only explain the test, but to also give you some basic practice questions, some tips on strategy and some decent solution explanations. Good confidence builder prior to moving onto the OG, Kaplan, Barrons, EZ Solutions. From this book(again assuming you have at least 2 months to study) I would move onto Crackin the Gmat, then onto Kaplan and Official Guide(OG), for extra practice throw in Barrons and for subject specific help, look into EZ Solutions and PowerScore...=)
Summary: This new edition is completely different and much bettter!
The previous reviews must be about an earlier edition of this book because I thought it was an excellent study aid for the GMAT. There were no typos that I could see, and the material was right on relevant to the way the questions are presented on the GMAT test.
The book was easy to read and actually (gasp!) made studying for the GMAT enjoyable. The practice test seemed to be at the same level as the actual GMAT, not harder and not easier.
This is a great prep tool. Check out this new edition by new authors. You won't be disappointed!
