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 a GRE expert, this 544-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
First, let me say, I love Powerscore. I used the Powerscore Bibles when I took the LSAT 5 years ago and it really helped so I knew that coming back to Powerscore for the GRE would be a good idea. When I took the first practice test, my Quantitative Score was 134 and my Verbal 157. I had not been in a math class in over 10 years and I knew that would be my biggest hurdle. After doing the 12- week Powerscore study schedule (using the GRE Verbal Reasoning Bible and GRE Quantitative Reasoning Bible) , my actual GRE score was Verbal 161 and Quantitative 151. I am happy my verbal score went up a little, but I was most impressed that Powerscore helped my math score to go up 17 points! 10 out of 10 would recommend any Powerscore material for anyone who needs standardized test prep.
