The guides are short enough to digest each individually in just a few days, and they give you practice questions along the way, including end-of-chapter and end-of-book problem sets, that range from the most basic GRE questions to the most difficult. There are so many questions that I was able to go through each book at least twice while having each question seem fresh to me (try using notebooks instead of writing in the books themselves). I would also recommend going over the Drill Sets of each book every so often to stay sharp on all mathematical and verbal concepts.
These books also come with 1,000 common GRE words (500 basic and 500 advanced), many of which I saw on the test itself. I would recommend setting up some Vocabulary.com or Quizlet flashcard sets, and doing about 20 sets of 50 words. The Manhattan word list, along with Magoosh's free flashcards and mobile vocabulary app, proved invaluable for me on test day.
These books also come with 6 practice GRE tests (through an online account), which I would definitely recommend taking. The interface is very similar to that of the actual test, and so is the difficulty.
Would definitely recommend getting these books and the 5 lb. Book if you're interested in a self-guided prep route.
I have also bought 5 lbs book with practice questions (very helpful to get yourself trained!) and the flash cards, however you may use the flash cards online when you register your books on Manhattan's official website - so there is no need to buy these cards, unless you like taking notes on the back of the cards.
I was very pleased with this product. I studied religiously for three months in preparation, and I obtained a 162 quant, 163 verbal and 5.0 in writing. This series is a great foundation for the GRE. It is not the end all be all but a great tool! I would still recommend youtube videos and other websites but it was my bible.

Very disappointed. Planning on returning this.
The key is to do every day 20 questions for verbal and quantitative to increase your score
