You can definitely use Old GRE Test prep books for practice test and sample questions.

You would still need to buy few Revised GRE test prep books to learn about new question types and concepts.

Math concepts doesn’t change and so does vocabulary, reading comprehension.

But, types of questions within each sections will be different.

I have reviewed most of GRE books in the above photo at  Reviews of Top Revised GRE books.

I should spent few more hours  get the latest 2012 GRE Test prep editions.
