Product Description


While viewing the data that was presented by your company, I decided to order materials to prepare for the GMAT. I received the study guides of which one was the math refresher workbook. After being out of the college enviornment for over 20 years, I was amazed at how little I had retained. But, I can say without reservation the information in the math refresher workbook was vital in my grasping the materials for the GMAT. The information in the actual GMAT booklet proved invaluable. Thanks for being a provider of information that was crucial to my understanding of the GMAT. -- David F. Wagoner, Sr.

2.0 out of 5 stars Refresh means you already have the knowledge! Feb. 22 2011
By SBuckle
Verified Purchase
This book would have been great should I have had the previous math background, but I didn't. This book quickly touches upon each area with minimal teaching as it assumes you already know all of it. There are very few drill sets to pound it in. If you need to start fresh, I would suggest Manhattan's Foundation of Math rather than this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good refresher, no practice questions May 3 2002
By A Customer
I'd recommend this book for anyone who needs a good math refresher. This book is in an easy to use format, starting with easy material and progressing to the more difficult from there. Each section contains a brief (but good) explanation followed by a fair number of practice questions. Don't look for any long-winded explanations in this book, it is a refresher, just as they say. Also, it is printed on good stock, so it holds up nicely. I took mine cross country with no problems, unlike the review books printed on newprint which didn't fare as well.
The biggest problem I encountered with this book is that it does not contain any test specific questions such as the GMAT's data sufficiency questions or the quantitative comparisons on the GRE. If you are looking for practice questions, this is not the book for you. If you want a math refresher, this is the book for you. If you are particularly strong in math, you probably won't find this book very helpful, unless you want to do basic math problems, out of test format. I used this book as a math refresher, then went on to one of the other review books for specific question practice. That combination seemed to work for me.

2.0 out of 5 stars This book is toooooo basic May 31 2001
By safcom
Don't buy this book - unless you are a complete zero in math. This book reviews stuff that you have in 3rd of 4th grade in school. I sat down and worked through all of the problems in this books, and it took me about 2 hours (with no difficulty). Believe me, this book is for PSAT or SAT rather than for graduate school exams such as GMAT or GRE!

I'm a 55-year old female that has been in the banking business for 30 years. I graduated from college with a degree in math and science a long time ago. I have always wanted to get a graduate degree, but have been afraid that I would have forgotten so much. The Ultimate Math Refresher took that fear away as it was a great, fun and easy refresher for me. The language is clear and concise, and the practice sets are well designed to refresh your math skills and concepts. I couldn't have found a better step-by-step method to get up to speed for the GMAT--even though I had a Math Degree and use to teach math many years ago!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for GMAT Prep! Nov. 5 2003
I am horrible at math but needed to brush up for my second shot at the GMAT. This book did an exceptional job of reintroducing math concepts I hadn't seen in years. There were plenty of practice problems with simple and practical explanations.
The first time I took the GMAT, I used Kaplan's math prep book. Although it gave me practice answering GMAT type questions, the reality was I really needed to first was brush up on my math fundamentals.
This book covers arithmatic, algebra, and geometry in 37 lessons. A great buy for anyone taking an ETS test!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great basic math review July 1 2003
The ETS tests you on math that you haven't had in years. This is a great refresher book. Simple, straightforward excercises to get your brain going on arithmetics again. There are 3 parts to the book, arithmetics, algebra and word problems, and geometry. Having reviews all of these parts, I scored much higher on a subsequent practice test. If you can be fluent and fast in all the concepts presented in the book, you should be able to over 650 easily in the quantitative section (plus you should review the GRE Quantitative format).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent math review book! Sept. 26 2000
This is an excellent math refresher book! I'm a returning student and I wanted a quick and easy way to not only refresh my long-forgotten math skills but to really learn them this time around. The book covers basic arithmetic, algebra and geometry concepts which are presented in a very readable and understandable format. The sample problems and answers were also very easy to follow. I especially liked the one page summaries of the mathematic symbols and rules (I had forgotten many of these - the summary was a great resource).

3.0 out of 5 stars Refresher for those who aren't too rusty
It's been a long time since I have utilized many of my math skills and I had gotten pretty rusty. The instructions were succinct with one or two examples. Read more
