Part One: Math

GRE math section includes about 500 pages of GRE Math problems and strategies. Math section is further divided into sections (to name a few)

  • Substitution
  • Defined Functions,
  • Number theory,
  • Hard Quantitative comparisons,
  • Percents
  • Word Problems
  • Probability and Statistics
  • Functions
  • Permutations and Combination

This book has additional section (Permutations and Combination) which is not included in Nova GRE Prep Course with Software, which is about 40 pages of additional problems.

Each section in GRE Math Prep Course is further divided into 4 categories based on problem difficulty

  1. Easy
  2. Medium
  3. Hard
  4. Very Hard

So, if you look under any section, you will see strategies for each layer of difficulty and practice questions with answers (in detail). If you want to improve your score, you should be able to solve all the hard and very hard problems.


I strongly recommend  GRE Math Prep Course (Nova’s GRE Prep Course). But, if you have GRE Nova Math Prep course with software, I don’t think you have to buy this book just for one additional section. If you have other books for GRE Verbal section, general GRE test prep and need to improve your GRE math score, then BUY this book.

  • Buy Rating – 10 out of 10;
  • Impact – High Math score;
  • Strategies Score-  9.5/10;
  • Number of practice questions: 10/10;

For instance, if you are consistently scoring 700 to 750 in GRE quantitative section, then most likely Nova’s GRE Math Prep Course  will boost your scores to above average GRE score with practice and good GRE study plan.
