It's exactly what it says it is: a book that will outline what's on the GRE and help you prepare for it. More complete than what is on the ETS website, and the 5 practice tests are very useful.

do not completely count on any gre books. they only provide a way to crack exam. The real GRE cracking master learn a ton from reality, like newspaper, journals, etc. However, I do appreciate and recommend the tips inside this book.

Online content is limited June 28 2012
By Luke B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book primarily because of the online practice material only to find out that it's quite limited.

It shows 10 practice sets for each quantitative and verbal sections in addition to the 5 practice tests. Unfortunately only 2 of the practice sets in each quantitative and verbal sections are actually available. I'm told that these other sets are "being added and will be available sometime in the future", but I'm still very disappointed.

Overall, the material can probably help increase a GRE score, but I was hoping for more accessible material that what's provided...

The claim of "online access to 900+ questions" is flatly false. Basic Math: 100 questions per practice test X 5 + 20 questions per practice "set" X 4 = 580 available practice questions.

Pay $20 or get it for FREE? June 7 2012
By Xavier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This edition is published on June 5, 2012, and I ordered it on the same day because I attended the Kaplan Free GRE Practice Test that afternoon and the speaker announced this new edition. So I purchased it for $20 with Amazon Prime because I want the access for the MSTs and verbal practice test.

***It arrived today and I figure something relatively interesting.

1. This 2013 Premier has no difference whatsoever comparing to 2011-2012 Premier Edition. The table of contents and pages are exactly the same. For instance, if I flip to P.248 in 2011-2012 Premier, it is chapter 13 talking about the kaplan method for data interpretation; and if I flip to the same page in 2013 Premier, SAME! I tried several pages as well and they are all the same.

2. After flipping to the 1st page from the book cover, I figured out that I dont really need to buy this book because all you need is a online book link, a keyword and a kaplan online account. If you have 2011-2012 Premier, just use the same keyword and you will have free access to all features in the 2013 Premier "AND" GRE Strategies, Practice and Review 2013, including the MST.

3. Good thing it cost $20 to own for a 575 pages book unlike those college student rip off textbooks or course readers that cost over $100 - $200 that you don't even know if you will be flipping them at all. I know I purchased $120 hardcover textbook that the professor does not require us to know anything about it because the exam is directly from the lecture notes and worksheet. The textbook itself is just supplemental for your reference.

4. I dont think it is worth it signing up for those on-site classes for $600 just for GRE, even the just the Verbal (4 classes) by itself will not help too much. It really depends on the time you spend on memorizing the vocab and analyzing the questions for verbal. Quantitative reasoning just requires careful calculation, interpretation and experience using the "what if" idea on the comparison. For AW, that you need to have your own database or training in order to score high.
I think most grad school will accept the new GRE above 300, but should aim for at least AW 4.5-5.0 , V160, Q160 to be on the safe side.

Online Tests Don't Work - Got 2 functional practice sets out of 10 promised sets July 11 2012
By J. Jun - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
You do NOT get 10 practice sets for each section.
You get 2 that work for each section. The rest have problems loading images, answers, and questions.
I've tried e-mailing Tech Support a couple times (5 days ago, 2 days ago), but have received no replies.

So I got some strategies, 2 practice sets for each section, and a diagnostic test.

The answers are very thorough, but it's not much use when the questions themselves are too easy.
I haven't taken the test yet, but I just bought Barron's math book, and Kaplan's math section looks ridiculous in comparison.

-----

Update: After this review was posted, Kaplan sent me an e-mail informing me that they had reset all my practice tests. They also gave me a question bank of 2500 free questions. The question bank was convenient and let me generate customized tests where I could select the type, difficulty, and number of questions I wanted. I've updated this from a 2 to a 3.

Don't waste your money! 100% identical to cheaper 2011-12 edition! Dec 18 2012
By lzk222 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Kaplan is interested in one thing and one thing only, making as much money as possible using as little effort as possible. This book, I kid you not, is identical page by page to the 2011-2012 edition. Do not waste your money. Buy the 2011-12 edition for cheap and forget this 2013 gimmick. It doesn't even offer as much online material as the 2012 edition! The only thing that I could find potentially beneficial about this version is that it claims to grant you "computer adapted tests" (like the ones on the real thing) online....but given its similarity to the 2011-2012 edition thus far I would not be surprised if the online tests are identical too. But, admittedly, I have yet to take them. Overall I have been quite displeased with Kaplan products. This book is a flagrant example of this company milks a product for all its got. Don't be fooled.

Good for practice question, not good for math explanation. April 28 2013
By asia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you're just looking for some practice sets, this text is great. There is ample opportunity to practice, practice, practice.

If you're looking for a thorough review of algebra, geometry, stats, data interpretation, all those problem-solving foundation skills you learned / never learned in high school, I suggest starting with a text like Manhattan GRE. I'm frustrated with this Kaplan book because it explains how to do each problem differently, rather than providing me the skills to solve an array of questions. There's plenty of opportunity to practice though.
