This book is nothing more than a 10 page study guide with 200 pages of fluff. Here is the book in a nutshell:
1. our time: 10% test review, 50% Practise tests, 40% Reviewing the test you just took. 2. Start with the subjects that you find most difficult and work to the subjects that are the easiest for you.
There. I just saved you $30.
A practical GMAT tutor

Unlike other GMAT books that start off with questions and analysis, the author first presents a detailed 30-day study plan - a plan that helps you gradually improve your GMAT skills while keeping you calm. There is helpful advice throughout the book to remind test-takers of the most important tips while maintaining a sense of urgency to study smart.

Very well written and strategic approach to master GMAT
By GH - November 22, 2011
This book is very well written with a structured and strategic plan for how to master the GMAT. I find it especially helpful when I am stuck at certain question patterns that I always got the answer choice wrong. The author depicts a way to how to recognize the pattern and how to intuitively analyze the question. Absolutely highly recommended!!!~
In addition, besides providing the technical skills and strategies, the author understands that this is also a mental challenge for the test takers. As a result, the author provides some other additional guidance and tips to help candidates. You can really tell that the author puts his heart and soul in it!!!
This is the amazing story of overcoming personal fears and limited resources, using gut instincts, initiative and just plain hard work to create a thriving business, as told by Vivian Tenorio, owner ...
