Terrible and not gmat specific

To put gmat in the cover is actually close to fraudulent. These are really basic 'study tips' to someone at high school perhaps. For example it goes on an on about tips on order of questions and to leave time to go back etc, when that is not even an option in the gmat. It is literally a copy&paste job with another cover on top. Really this was a big waste of time and credit.

Of all the hours only a few are useful

This kind of books are written in order to be long, but they actually lack content.
They repeat the index twice every chapter, along with other tricks to make this book longer.
And the worst was that most of the information is not specifically for the Gmat, but for "any kind of exam with that kind of exercises", its like they put together different pre-made chapters of the exercises for every book they make.
I bought it in order to listen to it on my way to work, I ended up very disappointed.

Don't waste your money, don't buy it.

Review not specific to GMAT

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Better tailored to GMAT review.

What could Official Test Prep Content Team have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Better tailored to GMAT review.

Would you be willing to try another one of Danielle Fornes’s performances?

Yes, if it addresses issues raised.

What character would you cut from Official GMAT Prep?


Any additional comments?

I would not recommend this audiobook as a primary GMAT review material. It is fractionally effective relative to other materials available. The strategies are generally not GMAT specific and actually create confusion in certain areas where the strategies conflict with GMAT procedures. If you have a long car ride and would like to have test prep materials to listen to this would be ok, otherwise I would not recommend these materials as being worth using.

This is what I've been waiting for...

Any additional comments?

Being an auditory learner, this is exactly what I've been waiting for before I take my test next month...its up to date, well put together and probably the most comprehensive audio guide you'll find for GMAT!

Content sucks

This book is not tailored to the GMAT, it is covers a range of test taking tips but nothing concrete on analyzing the structure and specific strategies for the GMAT. It's a waste of money and time. Maybe it's useful for the kind of person looking into the GMAT and who wants to think about it and see if maybe they want to do it one day... but definitely not for someone who's determined to score 700+ on the test.

Not GMAT Specific

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book is more about general test taking tips and not specifically related to the GMAT. It's very frustrating because of this. First few chapters reference the GMAT and some parts of the test - then it goes into tests that will never be part of the exam. It's really better a high school how-to guide on test taking, rather than college level.
