Exam Cram is a reasonable work book for the students, but not beginners,
This review is from: GMAT Exam Cram (Paperback)Exam Cram is a reasonable work book for the students that want to have some extra practice. However, the quality of the material is not the best because the book contains mistakes and reformulations of previous officially released materials. When learning for an exam, your work book has to be perfect, therefore any mistake is way too much. This book contains many mistakes in each of the available sections, quantitative and verbal.
Quantitative section is plagued by many mistakes in all materials, practice or tests. Mistakes range from subtle differences, where there is small numerical difference, to stupid cases where the correct result is not in the five answers, although the explanation contains the correct solution.
I encountered a similar problem in the verbal section, which contains many "templates" from the old GMAT materials, including the ones released before 2000. I was able to recognize similar structural templates where words have been simply changed... Read more
Riddled With Obvious Errors,
This review is from: GMAT Exam Cram (Paperback)The writing for this book would appear to have been done quickly and carelessely by someone half asleep without a single proof-reading by anybody. It is literally riddled with errors. Every page and problem set has mistakes, and about one out of five problems in the book list the wrong choice as the correct answer. The explanations for these incorrect answers are full of such logical gems as "Answer choice C can now be eliminated, because 0.03 is greater than 0.09" (pg. xxxix) or listing "m=3.753" as a correct answer to a problem that starts off "If N and M are positive integers..." (xliii) or providing an incorrect answer in the answer key followed by an explanation including: "all verbs and nouns refer to the plural noun 'men and women'" when the phrase "men and women" doesn't appear anywhere in the question it's referring to (pg 30). These are just three examples, but amazingly, nearly every single page has similar errors. It really strains the bounds of reason that anyone could... Read more
Errors and misinformation,
This review is from: GMAT Exam Cram (Paperback)I picked up this book specifically to brush up on the quantitative section in preparation to take the GMAT. Within the first 30 minutes of studying, I found 3 errors (pages 79-89)... ranging from simple typos to downright misinformation. I won't use this book to study for fear of doing more harm than good. Don't waste your money.
