  • The PowerScore GRE Quantitative Reasoning Bible is the definitive study guide for the Quantitative

    Reasoning section of the GRE. From the fundamentals of operations to the complexities of functions

    in the coordinate plane, The GRE Quantitative Reasoning Bible analyzes every question type tested

    and provides the most efficient methods for attacking those questions. The Quantitative Reasoning

    portion of the GRE is unlike other math tests, as it assesses not only your ability to perform

    mathematical operations, but also your aptitude for reasoning and recognizing unconventional

    solution methods. Written by an GRE expert, this 475-page book reveals secrets of the GRE for

    both the mathematically-challenged and the Calculus graduate, making the questions seem less like

    math and more like puzzles. Ideal for both high and low scorers, The GRE Quantitative Reasoning

    Bible provides students with a significant edge that increases their confidence, mathematical

    mastery, and test scores. The book contains all of the following essentials for GRE prep: An

    analytical breakdown of Multiple Choice, Numeric Entry, and Quantitative Comparison questions

    Drills to determine operation mastery Detailed explanations of eight solution strategies for attacking

    GRE Quantitative Reasoning questions Chapters divided by content area (Arithmetic, Algebra,

    Algebra II, Geometry, Coordinate Geometry, and Data Analysis, Statistics, and Probability) A

    comprehensive review of content knowledge and skill sets required for tested concepts (such as

    finding the volume of right circular cylinders) Detailed explanations of how each tested concept is

    applied to GRE reasoning questions (such as finding hidden triangles in right circular cylinders)

    Highlighted Arithmetricks and GRE Traps throughout the book Over 350 example and practice

    questions, all with detailed explanations Advice for thinking positively about the test and the

    Quantitative Reasoning section A glossary of math terms used in the book and required on the GRE

    (such as integer, ratio, and regular polygon) Online supplements, including Quantitative Reasoning

    Flash Cards containing all relevant formulas

    Test Preparation

    Some background: I took the GRE about 8 months ago so I have an idea of the level of difficulty of

    the real test. I just graduated from college in May 2014. The only math classes I had taken in

    college were a calculus and research methods course. I briefly went through the ETS prep book

    before the last test.I scored unsatisfactorily 8 months ago on the quant. reasoning section because I

    didn't review basic concepts that I hadn't studied since high school. I also found the ETS book to be

    overwhelming last time, which is why I bought this book.The positives: This book is great so far. It

    covers basic concepts and shows how they are applied on the GRE. They are turning what was

    originally a confusingly-worded test into one that can easily be broken down by using basic

    concepts. There are many practice problems, which is great. Quite surprisingly, I rather enjoy

    studying for the test now even though I do not particularly care for math.The negatives: There are

    some print errors. Page 44 of Chapter 3 jumbled up some of the answers so I thought I got the

    answers wrong at first. There was another typo somewhere in the book that said 3/4= 0.85 as

    opposed to 0.75, I can't remember which page. Another problem seemed RIDICULOUSLY hard and

    it turned out that only one of the two equations were provided in the question. The second one had

    accidentally been left out and not printed on the page. So there was inadequate information to solve

    the problem. That has made me apprehensive going forward that there will be a mistake that I will

    not catch and that I will learn incorrectly.That being said, this has GREAT tips for test-taking.
