The Princeton Review doesn't try to teach you everything there is to know about math and English -- only the techniques you'll need to score higher on the GMAT. There's a big difference. In Cracking the GMAT, The Princeton Review will teach you how to think like the test makers.This is accomplished by teaching you how to:Eliminate answer choices that look right but are planted to fool youSolve GMAT sentence correction problems by spotting key errors in questionsAce the writing assessment section by knowing exactly what the graders are looking forUse process of elimination to solve tricky data sufficiency problems*Study the techniques and strategies in this book, and then practice them on the 155 practice questions inside. Also included are 3 full-length simulated GMAT exams on CD-ROM with instant score reporting. The practice test questions are just like the ones you'll see on the actual GMAT, and every solution is fully explained.Contents include:I OrientationHow to think about the GMATCracking the System: Basic PrinciplesCracking the System: Intermediate PrinciplesCracking the System: Advanced PrinciplesTaking the GMATII How to Crack the Math GMATGMAT Math: Basic PrinciplesThe POE and GMAT MathArithmaticAlgebraGeometryData SufficiencyIII How to Crack the Verbal GMATSentence CorrectionReading ComprehensionCritical ReasoningIV How to Crack the Writing AssessmentWriting AssessmentV Answer Key to DrillsVI The Princeton Review GMAT Pre-Diagnostic TestThe GMAT Pre-DiagnosticGMAT Pre-Diagnostic Scoring GuideGMAT Pre-Diagnostic ExplanationsVII The Princeton Review GMAT Diagnostic TestVIII GMAT Diagnostic Test Answers and Explanations
The Princeton Review is the best test prep company when it comes to strategies for beating the test.

I raised my score from 60 points from 650 on my first Powerprep run to 710 on the actual test with only three weeks of prep. Using both Kaplan and Princeton Review books offers the perfect well-rounded preparation. Kaplan has the advantage in sample problems (challenging and, for the most part, well-explained). But Princeton Review offers advice on how to read the questions and eliminate answers.

In my mind, Princeton Review seems to have less respect for the test. They want you to beat it by understanding its design amd seeing through its tricks. Kaplan, on the other hand, wants to help you do well through thorough review of the material. Both are important appraoches, and they complement each other well.
The product is great. The CD ROM is great. Now that I have taken it, it feels like the real test. However, I have two complaints.

One, the CD ROM written portion does not have all of the shortcut keys that the test has. Kaplans version is closer to the original. Maybe my keyboard was messed up, but some of the CTRL+RIGHT ARROW, CTRL+LEFT ARROW, etc. combinations did not work. That actually gives you less time than you think, because you can't control the keyboard as well as the actual test.

My second complaint is a big one. The test results have to be uploaded to the Princeton server website to be scored. That is a problem because after three years, the website is no longer able to calculate scores. They expire. The Kaplan CDs are good only with the CD, but nothing else is required and there is no time limit on scoring. So, any Princeton CD that is older than three years is useless if you want an actual score and not a scaled score.
I bought 5 books for my GMAT preparation and unfortunately saved the Princeton Review for later in my review process. I started with the Kaplan books and although I found them to be a good review of the basics, that's about all I thought they were useful for. Now, the book isn't without errors. The CD that comes with offers practice tests and drills. The Reading Comprehension questions in the verbal portion of the practice tests are a bit messed up. YOu will sometimes get only 1 question per 350 word reading passage, then another passage will appear, followed by only one question- overall, you end up spending an enormous amount of time reading 6 or 7 different passages. The plus side is that once you have read them you are ready for all the other practice tests b/c they apparently use the same 7 or so passages for all the tests. However, with the exception of RC sections, I believe this book to be one of the better ones and the practice questions are similar to those on the real test, which is not the case with Kaplan. IN fact, the day before I took my test I took a Kaplan practice test since I had already completed all the Princeton tests and the Official GMAT Review tests. I scored a 490, which was not only 150 points below my last score, it was the lowest score I had ever gotten. I dismissed the score since I had already come to terms with the fact that Kaplan's questions and style were not a real representation of the GMAT. Anyway, the next day I got a 650 on my test, which I was happy with. I noticed that the majority of the GMAT book reviews are written by those who are trying for a 750 or something close to that, so I just wanted to share my experience, since I bet the majority of people applying to MBA programs are not looking to get a 750. My suggestion is to take as many practice test as you can and get a few different books, but please make the Princeton Review one of them.
Unless you are already on your way to a 700, this book should improve your score. I took the GMAT without reading it (just used the powerprep software. BAD IDEA) and did not do as well as I should have and will need to take it again to get the score I need. My wife bought the book a few months later and used it for her test. She was impressed so I took a look at it. a read a few chapters and picked out several items that would have improved my score. I imagine that once I have time to sit down and study through the entire book, I should be able to get the score I need.
I bought the Princeton Review Cracking the GMAT with CD (2006 Edition) in January, and had been quite pleased with the book for most of the period I have owned it. However, as my review draws to an end (I'll be taking the test next month) I have found at least two errors in the book. As far as I am concerned, an instructional book of this genre should not have errors. I noticed a new psychological effect: taking practice tests, when my answer matches none of the five provided, I am now tempted to believe the question is wrong.

The two errors I found are both in the section named GMAT Practice Test: Answers and Explanations, in Math Bin 4. I did not use the "questions-only" section, preferring to cover up the right side of the page, then check the explanation after having attempted each question. But question 9 (page 473) has an obvious error, as does the answer to question 20 (page 482).

I think the Princeton Review approach is sound, and it is a very readable book. But I am sufficiently disappointed and offended by these errors that I want my money back.
Very helpful with preparation for the GMAT!
Focused study of key information. Princeton Review teaches you the 'need to know' information in a concise manner. Their test taking tips help you narrow the answer choices to a managable level, critical for cracking the difficult questions. This is a great place to start your preparation for the Gmat.
I haven't really had a chance to dig into this book yet, but so far it seems very informative.
