Thank you very much for your comprehensive reviews of books, I read all of them. however, I’m a little bit confused now and don’t know what the best book is for excelling in Verbal section of GRE, I also need a book with a good ” Text completions/sentence equivalence” section. Or let me put my words in a more clear structures, I would be grateful if you could specify the best book separately for each section of GRE, i.e. Vocabulary, Reading Comprehension, Text Completions/Sentence Equivalence, Writing, Math. Thanks in advance

In a letter to one such displeased author, editor Karl Miller explains, "Once a book goes out for review we feel we should accept what we are presented with except in cases of factual error and of what you call 'viciousness.'" Letters such as this illuminate the magazine's editorial policies and serve as a forceful reminder that a literary career is not for the faint of heart.
