However, this book contains NO explanations or. Like all the other tests that ETS creates, the GRE has evolved, and some of the question McGrawHill, Lets discuss this notion by putting up a review of the GRE big book by Posted by Talha Omer on January 6, in GRE, GRE Book Reviews | 6 comments. *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. If you need to know it, it's in this book. Cracking the GRE, Edition has everything you need to know to master Verbal.
This is great news if you have a lot of time and money to spend before the test! If you have time, the PowerPrep PLUS tests do provide great practice—the explanations are a little brief, though it can be good practice to work out the processes on your own—but at a price.

So why does this very large collection of Manhattan GRE practice problems only get honorable mention? Some light Verbal practice from this book may help you get familiar with the basic question types and formats. Book, in countless subtle-but-important ways. Quant, on the other hand, is where this book really shines. The Quant problems are spot-on to the real test. All the math questions are very well designed, aptly capturing the tone, look, feel, and range of the real GRE Quant section.
The answer explanations for Quant are excellent as well!
Given that the Quant half of this book is solid, think of the Manhattan 5 lb. Book as a Manhattan 2. Nonetheless, I still somewhat like this book for its helpful big-picture strategies. It does not contain tests which were prepared for mere practice but those which were actually administered in the GRE.
There is no other such book available which contains the original tests. Moreover when you have such a source at hand which contains the true tests then all other sources seem unauthentic. Many students claim to have benefited by using this book, to the extent that some of the questions were actually repeated in their test! ETS carries out a number of researches before making any sort of change in their paper format, question type, difficulty level etc.
It is not easy to change the question pattern for GRE; a lot of research goes into it. This is because of the fact that the difficulty of vocabulary was a lot more when the papers in the GRE Big Book were administered than it is at present. The questions on vocabulary in any test tend to be repetitive to a certain extent.
If you go through all the vocabulary questions then there is a good chance of your scoring well in the GRE Verbal section.
The reading comprehension passages will give you a fair idea and practice of the type and standard of questions asked. Reading comprehension question from other sources might be either too easy or too difficult as compared with the real test. This book does have a lot of demerits. They find the questions easy and outdated.
Especially the quantitative questions of the GRE Big Book are far too easy, if you score well in it do not get excited and feel you are prepared enough! Be prepared for a much tougher Quantitative section in the real GRE. The syllabus taught in schools has become tougher over the years but the questions in the GRE Big Book have not changed.
As a result, only the simpler questions, which were once considered tough, are mentioned in this book. But the quantitative section is certainly misleading. Another disappointment you are likely to feel is that there is absolutely no explanation of the answers.
You only get to verify whether your answer is correct or not, nothing beyond that.
You might feel helpless if you are not satisfied with the correct answer but there is no one who you can approach for the explanation. If you have time, the PowerPrep PLUS tests do provide great practice—the explanations are a little brief, though it can be good practice to work out the processes on your own—but at a price.
But if you have a month or less before test day? Check out our review of the book here. Yes, the math is much easier. Still, these are questions created by the writers of test, so the traps are classic GRE.
This series contains eight mostly excellent books written by those with years of tutoring experience. This fact really shines through in the authorial voice this series uses.
You feel as though there is a highly intelligent, but fun, laid back tutor walking you through the material. The six free online tests you get by simply downloading any one of the eight books makes MGRE a no-brainer if you want expert guidance and great practice.
However, because ETS provides the Issue and Argument topic pools in advance, Vibrant has filled in a market gap by providing a breakdown of each prompt and then a sample essay.
