About the Author

In 2000, Teach for America alumnus and Yale graduate Zeke Vanderhoek had a radical idea: students learn better from better teachers. His vision of what test prep could be if written and taught by great educators led him to start Manhattan Prep. Since we began, Manhattan Prep has grown from a boutique tutoring company to one of the world’s leading test prep providers, offering GMAT, GRE, LSAT, ACT, and SAT courses and tutoring worldwide.

We believe test prep should be real education. From our instructors to our materials, we work to teach you the skills you’ll need to succeed on the test, in school, and beyond. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book material but a step down from previous edition !!
By Carcass (GREPrepClub) on October 23, 2018
I am Domenico AKA Carcass, a GRE Expert and run GREPrepClub Forum Community

Manhattan Prep Company is one of the lead companies to prepare the students for the exams such as GMAT - GRE - LSAT and so forth. I call Manhattan one of the five stars because along with Veritas Prep, Kaplan, The Princeton Review, and Magoosh they represent the top class, you do not go wrong with one of them.

However, if I should pick one among, Manhattan Prep is probably my favorite for different reasons:

The strategy they teach is almost score-proof;
Their practice material almost always - if not always - is the one that most closely resembles the original content provided by the author of the official exams, being GMAT GRE or whatever you could imagine;
Their tutors score in the 99% percentile score;
Their offer to the students stretches to the best, in every aspect.

With all this in mind, I have approached the new book, the newborn, the newcomer with such enthusiasm. No really, I am so passionate to exams such as GRE and GMAT that when new material comes out and as it turns out it could give me a new insight, a new hint, a unique perspective to tackle the exam, well, I am so happy. Eventually, I went through the book in one breath. I have to admit it is a kilometric book. I bought in Kindle edition, but I do not want to imagine to bring it with me around: over seven hundred pages - a tome. They have condensed what was divided into several books in the previous version - Manhattan Prep GRE Set of 8 Strategy Guides - in one huge brick.
Before we had the book of algebra, the publication of word problems but now we have all these in one spot called unit. In the same unfolding of the books aforementioned.

According to the same company, this book is "The content in the new Manhattan Prep GRE Math Strategies is an updated version of the math content in the Manhattan Prep GRE Set of 8 Strategy Guides." Unfortunately, this is not correctly true, if not at all. I have scanned the entire book from the cover to the acknowledgments, and the only difference I have spotted is the missing table about what to do and what do not with inequalities (it was so useful as a recap for the student to bear in mind).

For the rest, if you compare every single book of the previous version with this book side by side, not a comma is changed. No a single question or example to teach, to mastery, to consolidate every unique concept exam-related is new. ALL IS THE SAME. This book is exactly the mirror of the previous book sets. On top of that, things get worse when we reach the end of the book: in the earlier version, we had the drill sets to cement every single math concept, strategy, tips taught you along the way. Moreover, we had the practice question sets in which the questions had been divided into easy/medium/hard level of difficulty and the questions itself were amazing. Everything was perfect (or almost).

In this new version, all this have been faded out. Completely. Gone. With much my surprise, I must admit. It is a real step behind, almost a Waterloo for Manhattan Prep, considering when it comes out with a new product the attention to the details, the high stringent standards they use both to craft the theory and the practice to provide the top-notch material overall. Of course, we cannot pretend that from one book to a new release an overhaul comes into play, this is impossible. Unless the exam itself is not changed (the last GRE shift was in 2011) most of the books are good for years to come. However, in this case, the amount of money that the students should spend on this new-old version is not justified.

For those who do not have the previous set of books, I would certainly buy this. Having all that Manhattan offers in one book is convenient and easy to use. However, who has already the previous release, is time to look somewhere else. Here, there is nothing new under the sun.

I would give it five stars because the quality of the contents is high, without a shadow of a doubt, but a copy and paste this turn could be avoided.

Four stars for the quality of contents. Without a shadow of a doubt. However, as per title, it is a misstep
