An orientation chapter sets the scene and guides you through the basics of what you’ll be able to find inside: overviews of each test section (including the essays) with lots of sample questions and in-depth analyses of correct and wrong answers. No frills here, just lots of practice and some general help with the types of questions you should expect, such as analogies and data sufficiency. Even as some readers might miss the flashy design or eye-catching logos of the competitors, the authors maintain that attention and diligence are all that’s needed to beat the GMAT. If you are up to the challenge, get the GMAT Prep Course and start burning the middle of the night oil. –Rob Lightner
