Synopses & Reviews
The Princeton Review realizes that acing the GMAT is very different from getting straight As in school. The Princeton Review doesn't try to teach students everything there is to know about math and English—only the techniques they'll need to score higher on the exam. There's a big difference. In Cracking the GMAT, The Princeton Review will teach test takers how to think like the test makers and:
• Eliminate answer choices that look right but are planted to fool you
• Raise your score by practicing with our GMAT Pre-Diagnostic Test, Scoring Guide and Explanations
• Use process of elimination to solve tough data sufficiency problems
• Master even the toughest sections: Reading Comprehension, Sentence Correction, Data Sufficiency, Critical Reasoning, and more
xx Study the techniques and strategies in this book, and then practice them on more than 155 practice questions inside. The Princeton Review will also show readers how to go online and take 4 full-length simulated GMAT exams with instant score analysis. Practice test questions are just like the ones test takers will see on the actual GMAT, and The Princeton Review fully explains every solution.
