## About the author

In 2000, Teach for America alumnus and Yale graduate Zeke Vanderhoek had a radical idea: students learn better from better teachers. His vision of what test prep could be if taught by great educators led him to assemble a team of highly qualified teachers, recruiting only those with 99th percentile scores and substantial teaching experience. And with them, Manhattan Prep was born.

*4.0 out of 5 stars*A faux pas - A misstep

Manhattan Prep Company is one of the lead companies to prepare the students for the exams such as GMAT - GRE - LSAT and so forth. I call Manhattan one of the five stars because along with Veritas Prep, Kaplan, The Princeton Review, and Magoosh they represent the top class, you do not go wrong with one of them.

However, if I should pick one among, Manhattan Prep is probably my favorite for different reasons:

The strategy they teach is almost score-proof;

Their practice material almost always - if not always - is the one that most closely resembles the original content provided by the author of the official exams, being GMAT GRE or whatever you could imagine;

Their tutors score in the 99% percentile score;

Their offer to the students stretches to the best, in every aspect.

With all this in mind, I have approached the new book, the newborn, the newcomer with such enthusiasm. No really, I am so passionate to exams such as GRE and GMAT that when new material comes out and as it turns out it could give me a new insight, a new hint, a unique perspective to tackle the exam, well, I am so happy. Eventually, I went through the book in one breath. I have to admit it is a kilometric book. I bought in Kindle edition, but I do not want to imagine to bring it with me around: over seven hundred pages - a tome. They have condensed what was divided into several books in the previous version - Manhattan Prep GRE Set of 8 Strategy Guides - in one huge brick.

Before we had the book of algebra, the publication of word problems but now we have all these in one spot called unit. In the same unfolding of the books aforementioned.

According to the same company, this book is "The content in the new Manhattan Prep GRE Math Strategies is an updated version of the math content in the Manhattan Prep GRE Set of 8 Strategy Guides." Unfortunately, this is not correctly true, if not at all. I have scanned the entire book from the cover to the acknowledgments, and the only difference I have spotted is the missing table about what to do and what do not with inequalities (it was so useful as a recap for the student to bear in mind).

For the rest, if you compare every single book of the previous version with this book side by side, not a comma is changed. No a single question or example to teach, to mastery, to consolidate every unique concept exam-related is new. ALL IS THE SAME. This book is exactly the mirror of the previous book sets. On top of that, things get worse when we reach the end of the book: in the earlier version, we had the drill sets to cement every single math concept, strategy, tips taught you along the way. Moreover, we had the practice question sets in which the questions had been divided into easy/medium/hard level of difficulty and the questions itself were amazing. Everything was perfect (or almost).

In this new version, all this have been faded out. Completely. Gone. With much my surprise, I must admit. It is a real step behind, almost a Waterloo for Manhattan Prep, considering when it comes out with a new product the attention to the details, the high stringent standards they use both to craft the theory and the practice to provide the top-notch material overall. Of course, we cannot pretend that from one book to a new release an overhaul comes into play, this is impossible. Unless the exam itself is not changed (the last GRE shift was in 2011) most of the books are good for years to come. However, in this case, the amount of money that the students should spend on this new-old version is not justified.

For those who do not have the previous set of books, I would certainly buy this. Having all that Manhattan offers in one book is convenient and easy to use. However, who has already the previous release, is time to look somewhere else. Here, there is nothing new under the sun.

I give it four stars because the quality of the contents is high, as always, but a copy and paste this turn could be avoided.

Four stars for the quality of contents. Without a shadow of a doubt. However, as per title, it is a misstep

*5.0 out of 5 stars*Great for brushing up

I took the GRE when I was in undergrad (more than 5 years ago) and did really well on both verbal and quant. Unfortunately, those score are no longer available so I needed to retake the test for a new grad school application this year. I took one of the practice tests and my verbal score was about the same as when I took the GRE years ago, but I bombed the math (about 20 points lower than when I took it the first time). That makes sense because I haven't looked at algebra or geometry since high school and couldn't remember even some of the basic principles.

I bought the 5lb book of practice problems from the same company as this book, but my scores on the math section weren't improving. So, I tried this book instead. It was definitely a good decision.

Each chapter focuses on a particular type of math that comes up on the GRE, with detailed "lessons" on how to do it followed by practice problems. I had excellent math teachers in high school, so 100% of the content of the GRE I had at one point been very comfortable with. The explanations were just detailed enough to jog my memory and the practice questions (and explanations) were just complicated enough to stretch those math muscles back into shape. I just took the GRE this morning and my math score turned out to be exactly the same as it was years ago!!! At least 1/4 of the math questions were ones I would have struggled with had I not reviewed with this book, so I definitely would not have done this well without it.

A caveat: the explanations and lessons probably wouldn't have been helpful if I hadn't learned the concepts really well the first time. The explanations helped me remember really good lessons from years ago - they weren't in and of themselves good enough to teach a new concept.

*4.0 out of 5 stars*Buy the Beast, No reason to get this in addition

*5.0 out of 5 stars*Great book for math review

Will write an updated review after I take the exam.
