Official GRE Prep Books

Hey everyone,

I’m selling my GRE prep books, which include the Manhattan Prep’s 5 lb. Book of GRE Practice Problems and the Official GRE Super Power Pack, Second Edition. Both have been super helpful for me. The Manhattan Prep book is packed with over 1,800 practice problems that really mimic the actual GRE questions, plus it’s got some great online resources. It helped me a lot with both the math and verbal sections.

The Super Power Pack is straight from the ETS (the folks behind the GRE) and includes three official guides with tons of practice questions and real GRE tests. It’s pretty much everything you need to know about the test, including some strategies and tips.

Both sets of books are like new (I didn’t scribble all over them, promise!). They’re perfect if you’re looking to get a good score without spending a fortune on new books.

Asking for $70 for the whole lot (bought them for around $100).

DM me if you’re interested or have any questions!
