Book Description

Some clichés may indeed be true. This is the case with HOW TO SURVIVE YOUR FRESHMAN YEAR, a book that proves that "Hundreds of Heads are Better Than One."

The start of a college freshman year can bring on stomachaches, teeth grinding, parental feuds and sweaty palms. But knowing what to expect can relieve the nervousness and anxiety attacks, especially if you are being helped along by hundreds of survivors.

The hundreds of college students interviewed for this book get very down and dirty about the realities of freshman year – the best parts, the worst parts, the unforeseen. The students interviewed are from big schools, small schools, Ivies, and state universities. Greeks, geeks and jocks; men and women. What they told about their college experiences – whether satisfied, relieved or regretful – is remarkably universal.

Hundreds of Heads Books’ HOW TO SURVIVE YOUR FRESHMAN YEAR provides 800 personal stories and advice tidbits from hundreds of college Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors who survived freshman year.It even contains a few tips on things to avoid, from a handful of dropouts who didn't quite make it.

This easy to read (or browse) guide covers a multitude of subjects, from where to live, how to deal with roommates, best study habits, money issues, fashion concerns, hooking up, and studying abroad, to how to spend your free time, – and, yes, the bane of everyone’s existence – laundry.

HOW TO SURVIVE YOUR FRESHMAN YEAR is THE book to buy before making the plunge into your new life or the gift to give to your favorite graduating high school senior before he or she packs off to college.The book is chock full of real-world insights from hundreds of college students who have 'been there, done that' - and lived to share their wisdom. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars How to Survive Your Freshman Year
A strength of this work is that it provides practical strategies on how to make the transition from high school to college
with a minimum of wasted effort and expense.

College requires work regardless of how quickly you can grasp technical or easy to read presentations. There are research papers. Students have more lab work in the technical subject areas. Case studies require a solid commitment of time. Professors have different styles. Some design tests from the homeworks. Others design tests from case studies. Still others design highly competitive exams.
Grading schemes can vary. Some instructors grade by the strict bell curve. Others consider grading secondary. Some schools require strict attendance. Others simply don't care if the students do the work and perform well.

It is important to get good instructors/professors and to utilize them as a resource.
Individual study is important, but group participation can be helpful. It's important to talk to students who've had the same
instructors as you are assigned. Sometimes, it can be helpful to get the notes in advance. Students who aspire to be professional
athletes must manage their time. You can have a lot of fun in college but realize that you are there for an education.
It's important to complete the assigned homeworks and labs yourself because teachers usually formulate exams from this material.

Let's say that you're studying calculus.
The homework assignment involves a partial differentiation
of y x^3 on x. The answer of course is 3 y x^2. On an exam,
the instructor might ask you to do a partial differentiation
of y x^3 on y. The answer would be x^3.

It's important to do the homeworks methodically because similar
problems land on mid-terms and finals. In addition,
your focus on homeworks will save lots of time when it comes to
studying for exams. Homeworks are an important barometer of what
the professor considers important in the course. In addition, class notes can have important supplementary material not contained in the textbooks. Some instructors test the class notes heavily to penalize students who do not attend class
regularly or reward students with good attendance records.


Another dimension of college is paying for it. There are student
loans, full/partial scholarships and federal work study programs.
Some states have specific collegiate funding programs aimed at
college students. State funding can vary from outright grants to
scholarships to student loans. Many corporate entities fund college study as do private organizations and associations.
Some scholarships go begging for lack of applicants. It is important to research and apply for as many college scholarships and financial benefits as time permits. Do not assume that your
grades or SAT scores disqualify you from getting a college
scholarship. Some scholarships are awarded simply on the basis
of providing funding to needy students or students who might have
difficulty in paying for college without the scholarship assistance. In other situations, no-one may have applied and your application may be the only one up for consideration. By simply applying and meeting a minimum threshold-you may get the scholarship award.

College is perhaps your last opportunity to explore areas of
interest prior to entering the world of work. This work
is a solid investment because it teaches how to utilize the
college experience to your maximum career advantage.

5-0 out of 5 stars best cultural introduction
My niece is starting college in the states next fall and was very scared because she could not imagine how college life would be in another country. After she read the book, she feels much more comfortable with her year in America. It gave her a sense of college sub-culture and life in a fun way.

5-0 out of 5 stars awesome book for all incoming freshmen!
This book includes great, honest insight. It's perfect for every incoming freshman who is even the least bit apprehensive to start college. I wish I had read it last year when I was a high school senior... I'd have been a lot more prepared! (Great grad gift idea)!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great gift book
I bought this book for my niece when she visited as part of a pre-freshman trip to her two top colleges. She read it cover to cover, alternately chuckling, sighing, and saying "I can't wait." The book was a huge hit. It's funny, poignant, and dead-on accurate.

5-0 out of 5 stars What to buy for the soon to be highschool grad
This book gets it right. Colege kids talking to others soon to be in their shoes. I didn't agree with all the advice - ok - so my college days were decades ago - but I felt the honesty and helpful spirit of each entry. The format makes sense - the topics are relevant - its a book that will be used before and way after freshman year.
Unless you are the kind that thinks that only parental advice is worthwhile - this is a great senior year - freshman year find. ... Read more

Book Description

This convenient worktext gives students a unique approach to learning, remembering, and reviewing how to use Spanish verbs correctly. The book provides a systematic presentation and review of Spanish verb forms and explains when and why a certain verb tense should be used. Practice Makes Perfect: Spanish Verb Tenses includes an impressive number of exercises and open-ended questions, numerous conjugation charts, a list of verbs and their prepositions, and Spanish-English and English-Spanish vocabulary lists.

5-0 out of 5 stars Conjugate your life away...
I would not have learned what I know about Spanish verbs if I hadn't bought this book. The price is almost embarassingly low, and the amount of information you get for your money is astounding.

This book will help with reading comprehension and writing of Spanish. All of the verb tenses are covered, and accompanied by exercises that solidly reinforce the material. All you need to do is sit down with a pencil or pen, start reading and then start writing. The exercises are designed to reinforce your learning, and you'll be surprised how much you retain from completing them. I am almost completely self-taught (I had some help from some native speakers with conversation), and this book was a part of my language-learning arsenal that helped me more than get by with Spanish in South America and Spain.

LIttle by little the book goes through the various Spanish verb tenses starting with the present (hablo, hablas, etc). Before that the book goes over some basics like pronouns to provide a foundation (yo, te, me, elle, etc.). From there the book goes on to cover every Spanish verb tense I've ever heard of, including an elucidating few chapters on the subjunctive. You can literally start with almost no knowledge of Spanish. The book will not help you with speaking, however, nor will it teach you everything. Believe the words on the cover: this book is about verbs.

Verb conjugation may not be the most exciting thing humans have come up with, but this book almost makes conjugation fun (did I say that? No, not me, must have been someone else).

You certainly can't go wrong for the price.

5-0 out of 5 stars A superior value
I studied Spanish for two years in college, put down my books for four years, then decided to study again on my own. Vocabulary came back to me rather quickly, but verbs have been a challenge (as they were in college as well).

"Practice Makes Perfect: Spanish Verb Tenses" has been an unbelievably helpful resource in learning Spanish verb tenses. This book could almost stand alone as a textbook on Spanish verbs, and the exercises are fabulous.

In spite of the few small mistakes I've noticed in this book, it is an amazing value and I highly recommend it to anyone learning this fascinating language.

5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant
This book is straight-foward and very informative. It's not difficult at all to understand. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn more about the Spanish verb-tenses, some grammar points, and irregular verbs.

4-0 out of 5 stars Critique of Spanish Verb Tenses
Verbs are the heart of any language. If you want to become knowledgable and facil at not only conjugting verbs but understanding the contextual usage and rules governing the uses of the verbs, then this is the book for you. I think that anyone interested in studying Spanish, especially if they want to study it on their own, should have this workbook as part of their repertoire. I have found it invaluable. I recommend it highly. (I have also purchased and studied Richmond's Pronouns and Preposition workbook and the reviews are similar.)

I have given the book a 4 star rating rather than five for the following reasons:

1. Lack of an index: (The same is true of the Pronouns and Preposition workbook.) I find it hard to comprehend how a contemporary academic book can be published without an index. There is a tremendous amount of valuable information contained in this book but being limited to the Table of Contents or to ones memory of where a specific item can be found is debilitating. This is a terrible ommission.

2. After studying the book thoroughly twice, my workbook is riddled with tabs and annotations in search of clarifications. A bit of addtional clarification and some additional examples before the author goes off into the exercises would potentially eliminate a considerable amount of confusion. The sections on Ser and Estar are a good example. It appears that sufficient explanaions are provided in the book (in the section on Ser for exaple) until one delves into further exercises in subsequent chapters of the book. There, knowledge of the full use of "Ser" is assumed, but referencing back to the original chapeter on "Ser" leaves one empty handed (in some but not all cases) as to why "Ser" was used rather than "Estar." This might seem picayune until one looks back on the total number of questions raised throughout the book. It is understandable that the author cannot anticipate all possible questions and points of confusion, but a bit more explanation and the use of additional examples would greatly amplify and clarify the grammatical content.

3. The student would also benefit greatly by having additional exercises in the book that mix and match what is learned in previous chapters (This is done is a few limited cases.) It is all too easy as an exercise to answer questions and translate text that directly follows the material being presented, for it is customed tailored to the points being made in that exercise. Addtional end of chapter exercise combining all that has been learned would be a valued addition. With that said, let me also add that the translation paragraphs at the end of each section (as humorous and as enjoyable as they are to translate) somewhat satisfy this contention, but not fully.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Spanglish Speaker Can Learn From This Book
I've tried for years to grasp Spanish without success. Now I'm taking Beginning Spanish at the local college. The second class I was ready to drop, because it didn't seem like beginner level to me. The instructor convinced me to continue. The textbook is so difficult that I decided to buy some other help. This book saved me from dropping a class that had already cost me nearly $200. This was the best $10 I spent on supplies. If I can learn from this book, ANYONE can learn from it! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Jane Williams has accomplished the impossible!
I posted the following message on Amazon shortly after receiving my job offer. I have reviewed the new 6th Edition of the Insider's Guide... and have found that Jane Williams has accomplished the impossible. She has improved a book that already had fantastic information. The new book contains 150 pharmaceutical sales questions and answers! As a current pharmaceutical sales representative, I feel that this is the absolute best book on the market for anyone wanting to gain a pharmaceutical sales position.

Wow! What a great book! I have landed a fantastic pharmaceutical sales job with one of the top five companies thanks to the Insider's Guide and the coaching I received from Jane and staff at Principle Publications.

I couldn't have made it through the tough interviews without the guide. All of the questions and answers about how to handle the physicians who turn you down during a sales call, to why they should hire you over someone with sales experience, to how to "sell the product", etc. were all covered in detail in the book with examples! This "saved" me during my interviews, especially during the last and most difficult interview. I feel like I was asked most of the 78 questions and answers covered by the book during my five interviews.

Without my career comparison document and sales binder that I prepared by using the Insider's Guide I am certain that I could not have passed the interviews. Jane deserves a medal for this writing this book! I choose this book because it is the #1 selling book in its class on Amazon.com. There's a reason why it's #1...it's the best book on the market!...

5-0 out of 5 stars By far the best book on the market !
Jane, thanks for writing the best book on the market and helping me gain the best-paying position I've ever had! Thanks for teaching me not only what a pharmaceutical sales rep does but for teaching me how to think and respond like a rep! That made the difference for me during my interviews.

I was surprised that the pharmaceutical company who hired me would ask so many questions that relate directly to what a pharmaceutical sales representative does, but they did just that. When I read all the questions and answers in the "Insider's Guide..." I thought that surely no one could be expected to know this much information about the pharmaceutical sales industry, but they do expect you to know the information. Fortunately for me, I was prepared!

The Insider's Guide was by far the most comprehensive guide that I purchased and contained the most relevant information for passing the interviews. To all of the aspiring pharmaceutical sales reps, my advice is to purchase this guide and then follow Jane's instructions to the letter. Even if you have a degree in English like me, you too could beat out the competition and win the pharmaceutical sales position!

5-0 out of 5 stars This book is the bomb!!!
Okay people, I bought the book 3 months ago, and I must say it is the bomb!!! I have no sales experience, but this book guided me step by step. It even gives you various scenarios with various answers. It is outstanding for a newcomer to the industry. Take heed and get the book!! I wanted the newest edition, but it hadn't come out yet and I was desperate to begin my research. I had 2 interviews with the same company--I was referred by my pharmaceutical sales rep friend--and I believe they went well. I am waiting to proceed to the next step, which is with the district manager. Needless to say, I was overly prepared. The binder the book suggests you put together totally "WOWED" the interviewer. 2 words...THE BOMB!

5-0 out of 5 stars New Pharmaceutical Sales Representative!
What a superior career guide! After looking at several books, I found Ms. Williams' Insider's Guide... and used it to prepare for a pharmaceutical sales career. Three weeks after buying the guide, I have a job with Pfizer!! There is no way that I could have prepared for those FIVE interviews without the Insider's Guide... I wasn't surprised by a single interview question. This book is the best investment I've ever made. I can't recommend it enough to anyone who wants a career in pharmaceutical sales.

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely fantastic!
As a professional sales consultant, I am always looking for books that I can utilize as a consultant. The new 7th Edition of the "Insider's Guide..." is absolutely fantastic! This book offers excellent advice on networking, the pharmaceutical industry and the new physician call guidelines for pharmaceutical sales representatives, understanding the interview process, using personality profiling to your advantage, 150 specific detailed pharmaceutical sales interview questions and answers as well as major pharmaceutical company profiles and contract sales organizations contact information.

The book is very well written, professionally edited, and reflects the author's credibility. It is easy to see why this book is being utilized by college and university sales and marketing professors for their sales and marketing courses and special sales classes. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Made a HUGE difference!
I had 9 whole days to study for the NLN test. I had never taken anatomy, physics, microbiology, mechanics, electricity, and Im only half-way through chemistry. I havent had math in 20 years. So I was a bit worried when I got this book and saw how uneducated I was on the science section and how rusty I was on the math. But I read the science section 5 times and took ALL the pactice tests. I also studied every question I got wrong. There really wasn't much I could do to practice for the reading test, but taking the practice tests helped me figure out 'their style' of testing so I was better able to figure the correct answer. The bottom line is, I scored a 151 which is in the 99% - top 1% score in the country - and I couldnt have done it without this book! But just buying it isn't enough - take EVERY test in the book and if you don't know your science, read the science review as many times as you can. When you score your test, go back and find out WHY you got an answer wrong. Tip: dont circle the answers in the book, but write them on a separate piece of paper, so you can go back and take the tests again. The real test was just like the review book. Also, be aware of TIME - I used every minute during the real exam! You need to do each test in the practice book in 45 minutes.

2-0 out of 5 stars not very helpful
I devoured this book from front to back and I only scored 115. Although it gives you some review in each area covered on the exam, none of the vocabulary was what was on the test. Don't count on this as your only source. Check out a couple other review books, and good luck.
Kathy

2-0 out of 5 stars RN2B--hopefully one day
I only rated this book 2 stars because I feel like it wasn't as helpful as I had anticipated. The math portion was good--the practice questions were VERY similar to what was on the test. The verbal part--maybe it's helpful if you're a slow reader and need to just "pracice" reading passages. The vocabulary on the real test didn't even compare to what was in the book. The science helped some to refresh what I had already taken in school. But it didn't cover enough re: electricy and ohms and stuff like that. A lot of questions on my test were about electricity. I felt as if I needed to take a course in that alone to be able to pass the science portion. I took the test a couple of days ago so maybe once I receive my scores I will have a different opinion. Right now, though, I wouldn't recommend anyone buying this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars You don't need any other book to prepare yourself.
This is all you need to prepare for the test. I took it on march and I did great. Of course this will be true if you are not seeing the subjects for the first time. I mean, that as a review book for preparation it is all you'll need for the NLN entrance exam.

1-0 out of 5 stars DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!!!!!!
This book was nothing but a waste of paper and money. I will admit that the science review was somewhat helpful but the math and verbal review were a joke. Both reviews basically tell you everything you DON'T need to know. The first time I took the test I made a 144, I bought this book thinking I could raise my score a little higher and made a 119. I wouldn't recommended this book to anyone. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I Used This Book To Pass The CFP Exam
I found this book to be an accurate and concise review of the 101 topics covered on the CFP cerfifcation exam. This book was written in a great "review notes" format, much like I would take notes on a complex subject. I would highly recommend this book as a great CFP certification exam review. It is filled with only what you need to know- no extraneous commentary.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very useful book
This book is an incredibly detailed outline covering the vast selection of topics included on the CFP exam. Because of the outline format, I wouldn't recommend trying to use this book as a way to learn material for the first time. What it is ideal for is as a reminder of details and distinctions, improving your recall of topics learned in some prior class or self-study, but in much more detail. Because this book is updated each year, it references up-to-date tax dollar amounts you'll need for the exam. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars They make the test...Hence the 5 stars
I used this book along with one other prep manual. This book does not give much practice material. The few questions that are given, are actual old test questions. So you will get a general idea of what a real test will look like. This book contains only one pratice test.

Another perk this book offers is a complete list of essay topics. My actual essay topic was listed in this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Praxis Study Guide
After researching books and reading numerous reviews to determine which book I would buy to be my PRAXIS study guide, I decided on this book. It is written by the same company who writes the PRAXIS exam and I believe they would know better than anyone on what to study. This book has been a great help because I have strengths in Reading and Writing, yet Mathematics is my weakness, yet this book is coaching me through the process. I love the review of what to study and the problems. With the Prayer, this Praxis Study Guide, Math.com and a Math Textbook I have faith that I will pass the math.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is the BEST book for preparing for the Praxis!
I had looked at several Praxis/PPST review books. I ended up getting this one because it is written by ETS, the folks that make the test. I figured they of all people would know what sorts of questions would be on the test and what I should study! The book is clear, informative, and concise. You won't waste your time studying unnecessary information. It also includes a complete practice test and information on taking the test by computer. I took the computerized PPST today and got a GREAT score, way above the passing score required by my state board of education. I highly recommend this book! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Invaluable
Background - I am 13 years out of college. My test taking and math skills were pretty rusty. I want to get into a top 20 MBA program to make it worth the investment. Consequently a great score was very important. I was shooting for 700.

I bought the Princeton book / CD, the Kaplan book / CD, and the Official Guide from ETS. I also downloaded the PowerPrep software from ETS for free. I completely exhausted the Princeton and Kaplan material - test strategies, exercises, practice tests. I did all the practice tests in PowerPrep. Moreover, I did the last third of the questions from the Official Guide (the harder questions are in the back).

I did not take a training class. I took a Kaplan class 14 years ago for the LSAT and was not happy with the investment. Better would be to find a study partner in your area.

My assessment:
1. The Princeton book by far has the better explanations of test taking strategies, as compared to Kaplan.
2. The Princeton questions are much more similar in structure to the real GMAT questions, as compared to Kaplan.
3. The verbal sections of Princeton practice tests are pretty similar in terms of difficulty to the real GMAT verbal section, as compared to Kaplan.
4. The quantitative section of the real GMAT is far more difficult than Princeton practice tests.
5. The Kaplan practice tests are much harder than the real GMAT.
6. The free online tests that come with the Princeton book / CD are a great added bonus.
7. The PowerPrep software is identical in look and feel to the real GMAT, but the quant questions are definitely easier.
8. The Princeton book has the best approach to the writing sections, but do review the Kaplan material as well.

If you want a top score then my advice is to get all three books and download PowerPrep. You also need a lot of time to prepare, particularly if you're working full time or if you've been out of college for a while. I studied and practiced for about 8 weeks. You also need to be comfortable with taking the test on a computer. It is more difficult than on paper - harder to read on the screen, harder to take notes, etc.

First, start with the Princeton book - this will give you a solid foundation. Next, exhaust the PowerPrep software. This will give you a good baseline of where you are and where you need to focus. (I scored 730 and 740 w/ the PowerPrep software.)

Next tackle the Kaplan book, but only focus on sections where you are having trouble. Then exhaust the Princeton Software. (I scored 720 and 730 on the practice tests on Princeton's CD.)

Then do the Kaplan CD practice exercises and practice tests. The tests are very hard, more difficult than the GMAT . . . particularly the verbal. You will score lower on these tests. The practice exercises don't give you enough time to answer all of the questions. Nevertheless, try not to become too frustrated. Keep in mind that you are building stamina and you are improving by seeing new, challenging quant questions. (I scored 640 on the diagnostic, and 680, 580, 650, 600 on the Kaplan CD practice tests, much lower than Princeton and PowerPrep.)

When you're finished w/ the Kaplan CD, start doing the last 1/3 or so of each section in the Official Guide, 20 questions at a time. These are ACTUAL GMAT questions. The explanations are EXCELLENT, far better than either Kaplan or Princeton. Unfortunately some Official Guide questions are repeated from the PowerPrep software.

Meanwhile, mix in online practice tests from Princeton; again you'll have seen some questions before. Don't sweat the recycled material. You won't remember the answers to many of them and you'll have to rework the quant questions anyway. At this point it is more important to understand why you are missing certain types of questions repeatedly and to improve how you attack specific question types. (I scored 750, 710, 690, 730 on the Princeton online practice tests. However, these scores are suspect due to the recycled questions.)

My advice is to take NO tests the day before the GMAT. Clear your head some. Spend time getting comfortable with a template for the writing section. Review specific questions that you've missed in the past - the Official Guide is ideal for this - understanding the correct approach. Relax if you can and get a good night's sleep.

Last piece of advice, bring a snack and use ALL of BOTH breaks. Stand up, stretch, whiz, drink something, eat something. The test is exhausting and you need to use the breaks to clear your head and refocus.

If you do all this you should get a great score. The real GMAT was VERY difficult, even after all of my preparation. I even guessed on a few quant questions that I had no idea how to attack. The whole test went by in a blur. Stamina and timing, however, were not an issue with so much full-length practice.

I ended up with a 760, far better than I targeted and expected, even better than on any practice test I took. This was a pleasant surprise, given how difficult the test was as compared to much of the practice material. However, by using all of the practice material effectively I am now able to look at top 10 programs instead of top 20! Yeah!

5-0 out of 5 stars By far the best instruction on the market
I'm a GMAT tutor with 10+ years of successful students. Here's what I suggest for the GMAT:

1. Use the Kaplan CD (as cheesy as the presentation is, the tests are very good). I've heard complaints that the prep tests from Kaplan are too hard, and I have to disagree with the point being made by these students. The only way, on a computer-adaptive test, to increase your score is to test using HARDER, not easier problems. I may kick ass at medium level questions, but unless I want a medium level score, practicing at a lower level hurts rather than helps.

2. Ignore the Kaplan book. Use The Princeton Review books (either Cracking the GMAT or GMAT Workouts for Math and Verbal) for tricks and psychology. Try the Official Guide for extra problems and basic review issues (but use as much of the Princeton psychology as you can -- the Official Guide encourages you to do the problems straight, and that's a huge waste of time). The Princeton tests are buggy for sure (Hello! Princeton Review! Fix this!) but are still fairly accurate.

3. Take as many practice tests as you can. That means Kaplan, Princeton Review, PowerPrep. Arco, Barrons, Petersons, and Dummies are all awful. Don't bother with their instruction or their tests. On Princeton Review and PowerPrep, knock 30 points off your score, just to be safe.

4. Check out your local library. Many public libraries have crazy collections of old, out of print Official Guides, chock full o paper-and-pencil tests going back a good 20 years. By all means, use these -- they're a goldmine of practice questions.

Good luck!

5-0 out of 5 stars The Princeton Review is Very Accurate
All that you need to be a success on the GMAT is the Princeton Review's book, and the disk that comes with it. However, you must also study the 10th Edition ETS book before utilizing the Princeton Review. This will allow you to get "warmed up" and get the cob webs out of you quantitative ability, and it will also allow you to start getting down a system for attacking GMAT problems. I did every problem in the book at least once. The thing I like about the Princeton Review is that it teaches you how to guess wisely. My score improved by 100 points using the Princeton Review's materials and concepts. This has allowed me to focus on the top ten schools. I will put it to you this way..my neighbor studied using only the Princeton Review, and he attends NYU's Stern School of Business, my good friend used only the Princeton Review and he is starting Stanford this fall! I received the exact same score from the Princeton Review's practice GMATs that I recieved on the actual test. Infact, some of the problems were exactly like the ones I reviewed minutes before I took the actual GMAT! I believe the Princeton Review is a must have if you are serious about doing well on the GMAT!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars A great supplement to the Official GMAT
While I used the Official GMAT as the core of my study efforts, this book is a great supplement, it helps you understand how to think about the questions. I highly recommend using this, I think it helped me with my prep for the GMAT

1-0 out of 5 stars Buy the version WITHOUT the CD.
Contrary to Peterson's "GMAT CAT Success" (which I also reviewed), the strength of this bargain lies in its book and NOT in the tests provided on the CD-ROM and in the Internet site (read on to find out why). There's a solution for this problem - Princeton offers the same book without the CD. That way you'll be able to avoid the extra money that they charge for the lousy CD.

The Book :
-------------
The math sections -

First and foremost, the book will try helping you to create the state of mind needed to succeed in the GMAT. It goes down hard on ETS - your opponents - whenever it can. It makes you realize and accept the fact that their main goal is to make you fail in the test. It's a war of minds - your mind against the test makers' minds.

Second, it introduces a few powerful techniques such as process of elimination, plugging numbers to the cosmic problems and working backwards, that serve as invaluable source for cracking the hard questions and saving precious time. The examples that follow are very good and help to master these techniques.
Third, the theoretical math material given is extensive but not sufficient. You'll still need to check out other sources such as the free software of ETS to get a complete picture.

The verbal section -

The writers have done a good job in categorizing not only the kinds of questions you're going to meet, but also the kinds of mistakes that are common in this section. Nevertheless, the key for cracking this part is to do as many examples as one can - and that's why other sources are required.

The writing assessment section -

There are 26 pages of a comprehensive guide for this section in the test. It seems that the authors have invested a considerable amount of energy in this section that is overlooked in some books, probably because it doesn't't contribute to the general score in the test.

If you want to focus on this area I recommend buying a book that concentrate on the verbal section to get even more material.

The Internet Extra Help :
------------------------------
This option gives you access to 4 online tests and a GMAT discussion board. The tests are relatively easy; they will not represent your performance on test day, nor will they let you access explanations of mistakes you might have. On the other hand, the discussion board might be of genuine help, as people that have taken the test come over there and share their experience and interest free advices.

The CD-ROM :
-------------------
The CD is the weakest link; Once installed, you'll find warm up questions and 4 tests that don't begin to compare to the level of the actual GMAT. It's annoying that not only do they challenge you mostly with easy questions, but also they do not offer any explanations to, at least, the harder questions. I finished some of them feeling they weren't even adaptive!

To improve their merchandise I would urge Princeton's staff to start thinking of thought-provoking questions and start bothering writing answers to them as well. Unless the CD substance changes drastically - this deal is not recommended. ... Read more

1,000 SAT I vocabulary words in a teen-friendly page-turner

Say adios to the mind-numbing word lists found in most SAT prep guides: teens will lose themselves in the fast-paced drama of The Marino Mission and emerge with a superior vocabulary.

5-0 out of 5 stars go for it - the best bet
If your GRE scores are decisive for people in admissions; if you want to get to one of the Ivy League schools and you are really dedicated to that goal, find this book. A quick example:

I took the GRE in 1999, and I got 1100. I retook it in November 2002 and got slightly more than 1000. I used Barrons study guides, went through their practice tests, and my English was much better than 2 years ago... and still I scored even less!

I got angry, and I bought the Big Book and spend about a month solving 10 tests (out of 27 tests offered by this wonderful book). So, on January 2 I got 670 on Math (and actually I am not at all good at math) and 670 on Verbal (and actually I am not a native speaker, you have certainly noticed that:-).

Ok, now - What is the result then? One month of practice with this thing, and you can up your score by 340 points (1340-1000)!

Go ahead, review slightly the GRE test-taking strategies (for the verbal part I would recommend Kaplan Verbal Workbook) and attack the Big Book tests. You might be dissappointed with your first results, but do not give up - you will feel better on the 5th test, and ready to take the real one on about the 10th.:-)

To make myself clear: DO NOT spend too much time on strategies review. Instead, plan your preparation and allow the most of your time to the PRACTICE Tests from the Big Book.

4-0 out of 5 stars This book has 8 real tests
This book is written by ETS which provide the GRE test service. The merit of this book is these: first, this book offers the official guidelines of the test. And that line is informative and helpful to test-takers. For example, you can figure out what scope the math section would deal with. And that this book not only show you the scope of section, but explains how to solve the questions in succinct way. Second, as the title says, this book has 8 real tests ETS made. Though ETS offers PowerPrep software for free to practice and get familiar to the test, current 3.0 version has not much tests. With this book, you could get more material to practice. And better, they explain why the question should have this kind of answers in detail. With that explanation, you could catch the knack how to approach the questions.
But this book has the weaknesses like these: first, those real test this book offers are outdated. They provides tests held in the late 80s and the early 90s. But current CBT test are somewhat different from those tests. Current tests are much easier. Second, there is no guide to what kind of words is tested in the exam at all. Guidelines are no more than official on that matter. And those guidelines could be downloaded from ETS site for free. Then the only point to buy this book is the 8 real tests. It¡¯s up to you whether to buy this book. But in my opinion, if you take the test score seriously, you¡¯d better practice those real tests.

3-0 out of 5 stars Tests Now Available On-line for Free
The GRE folks now provide practice computer GRE tests for free via their website - www.gre. com. As such, don't purchase this book if you only want the computer tests.

1-0 out of 5 stars Stuffed, Monotonous and a Gigantic Retrogressive Experience
In my opinion, the title is a misnomer and the book is a lemon, a disappointment and a surprisingly ugly experience.

At first, I expected good quality from this 10th edition book which is published by ETS, a relatively well known organization for testing services and products. I thought that this book would be genuine and able to provide real help to potential examinee. The tidy covering and the unqualified claim "We prepare the Tests - Let us Help Prepare You!" is straight forward and I ordered the book without much hesitation.

When I got this book and looked into it, it was a surprising and disgruntled drama ready to be unfolded. The practice exams are way back in late 80¡¦s and very early 90¡¦s and it seems like there has been significant changes since the old days. Full explanation is only provided for one out of a total of seven practice tests. The quality of some questions is really below average and numerous answers are questionable. The analytical section only provides brief commentary for the issue and argument essays and the additional material given almost at the end of the book is incomplete. I felt that this book does undermine the impression on the actual test significantly and should be brought back to ETS for an extensive overhaul. It is obvious that the whole book was casually pieced together in a big rush to get a quick reap out of the market. The Powerprep software downloadable from ETS website does a better job to give potential examinee a holistic view of the exam and the practice questions are quite useful.

Overall, looking back and it was one disappointing experience after another. It is definitely not worth the price and there is much better material in the market.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Study Tool
I just took the GRE and did pretty well, considering my vocabulary isn't the best. I wouldnt reccomend this book for its strategies, but because it has 8 old tests so that you can get a feel for how you will do on the test, and be able to determine where to focus your studying on. I found that my actual scores corresponded with the ones that I got after taking these practice tests.

If you want some help with strategy I would suggest something by the Princeston Review, I found them more helpful than Kaplan. Good Luck with your studies. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Depends on what you need
I've read the 2001 edition, not this newest one. But if you need a hard-core history review, this is still probably NOT the book for you. However, if you'd like more information about what test 10081 of the Praxis II series actually covers, then read this book. Technically, you don't really need to buy a copy if you can get a library to do an interlibrary loan for you since all you need to do is flip through the chapters on what the test covers and make some notes on what you need to review. The best part of the book, though, is the sample test. The one in the 2001 edition is 117 questions long (the real test is 130). Otherwise, this book is a big list of what to study, not an actual history textbook.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not much to go on!!
Don't buy this book if you need a histroy review. It only contains an outline and a sample test. The book states that a person taking this section of the Praxis should buy some history text books. I should have done that instead of wasting my money on this worthless book! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Postal exam 473 preparation
I just received this book and the 473 & 473-C Computer-Based Course and have found out that the books are identical except for the CD-Rom. So don't waste your money buying both. The book provides six practice exams for parts A (address checking), part B (forms completion), and part C (coding and memory). It does not give any detailed information regarding Part D (personal characteristics and experience inventory). This seems like a good start for learning how to pass the exam but I don't know for sure. I bought this book to help my son pass the new test since I already work for the Post Office and my old study books for the old 470 exam are no longer any good.

5-0 out of 5 stars Updated to the New December 2004 Test
The Postal Exam 473 (and the same test with a different number 473-C) is the brand new (December 2004) standard test used by the Postal Service to fill all fulltime Processing, Distribution, Delivery, and Retail Postal jobs. While the test is like a lot of other standardized tests, it has been specially written for the Postal Service. It has specialized parts that directly relate to Postal services such as tests that have to do with route sorting mail, memory tests that are based on ZIP Codes and addresses, and filling out forms that are specific to the Postal Service.

This book is produced in three versions to suit your study preferences. These are:

The Original Postal Exam 473 & 473-C Study Guide -- This version is text only. It has reference material and sample exams with many test taking tips.

Complete Postal Exam 473 & 473-C Training Program with 2 Test Prep Audio CD's -- This is the same book, but two audio CD's read it to you while you follow along in the book. Using two senses, eyes and ears increase the retention of information.

New Postal Exam 473 & 473-C Computer-Based Course -- This is again the same book, but there is a CD that contains both test prep classes and realiztic practice exams, you'll need an internet ready PC with Windows to use this version. ... Read more

Book Description

1001 Questions in MCAT Chemistry provides practice questions in all chemistry topics covered by the MCAT. The questions and explanations are designed to teach the student to think intuitively. Like the MCAT, conceptual thinking is encouraged while lengthy calculations are discouraged. Memorization of basic formulas is required, but usually will not, in itself, provide the fastest method to finding an answer. Questions are conveniently arranged by topic. Question difficulty ranges from easy to very difficult. Questions are formatted exactly like the MCAT. Answers and explanations are provided in the back of the book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good but not as good as others are implying
I think this book is great if you are preparing for the DAT. But I don't think this book will give you 30's for the MCAT. Granted, you need to know how to answer these types of problems. But you need to practice real passages. I would strongly encourage you to acquire the Princeton Review Science Workbook. They come with the course but you can usually buy them used off of students who completed the course and the MCAT. Go to a messageboard for MCAT students etc. Aside from the real MCATs that AAMC releases, the Princeton Review book will help you. Ideally, you should use the Examcracker books first to hone your skills of the basic sciences. And then you should use the Princeton Review Science Workbook to apply those skills.But in now way will these books by themselves automatically equip you to handle the MCAT.

3-0 out of 5 stars Fair review for MCAT chemistry.
This book contains many questions in basic chemistry for the MCAT. All relevant topics are covered; however, I feel that this is not the best book for review. The main objection I have is that the question format is NOT what appears on the MCAT. Most MCAT questions are based on a reading passage and very few of the Examcracker's questions are in that form. Those that are based on a passage are very simple when compared to the real MCAT questions. I scored well on the physical sciences section but it was because I worked through real MCAT practice exams. Do not use this book as your sole source for chemistry preparation. I've said this dozens of times to friends, "If you purchase a 'comprehensive' review book make sure you also use old college books, old college notes, and work through old MCAT exams."

4-0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth your time and money.
I believe Examcrackers produces the best MCAT prep materials. I made the mistake of taking another prep company. It took me quite long to realize the other prep company did not prepare me at all. I used this book to help me understand the concepts for the g. chem on the MCAT.

5-0 out of 5 stars Begin to think like the AAMC
I challenge anyone to find a better series of teaching tools than the 1001 series from Examkrackers. I have been collecting all of the available MCAT prep material for the last two years and I am very adamant when I say there is a lot of bad/misguided/bs out there for sale. The authors of the 1001 books have gone to great lengths to make these books excellent learning tools.

The 1001 series are not passages like the real MCAT, they are problems that allow you to hone in on your weaknesses and fix them. The mini-passage format allows the user to get accustom to the MCAT style of questioning. If you are able to understand all 1001 questions in this book, then there is no reason not to score perfect on the MCAT Physical Science section.

The 1001 books are about the concepts and they force the student to think intuitively. This, my friends, is how to succeed on the MCAT.

3-0 out of 5 stars MCAT THINKING
While this book is better than most MCAT guides on the market, it does have some flaws. PRAISE: The questions are excellent! Just like the MCAT! FLAW: Often the questions pertain to information not previously mentioned or reviewed in the previous passage. EXAMPLE: A question from the first section involved answer choices of London forces, hydrogen bonding, and dipole-dipole moments. None of these terms or concepts were discussed previously! SO: Basically you need to have a good foundation before you get this book. Once you do buy the book, IT DOES TEACH YOU HOW TO THINK LIKE THE MCAT!!! Just remember to review the knowledge elsewhere! ... Read more
