Hi,

I am preparing for the GRE exam. I am looking to improve on my math skills. I have the Barron's GRE workbook which has a math review chapter. But, I need more exposure to some of the math topics in order to be able to practice more problem solving. I am specifically looking to improve my math skills in these areas:

1) Algebra and word problems
2) Probability
3) Percentage and Ratio
4) Area and Volume of solids

I already have the Barron's "Geometry the Easy Way" which is a good book to improve on your geometry skills. I am looking for similar books for the topics that I mentioned above.

I would appreciate it if anybody could provide me with some information regards these books. Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Suba.

Suba,
I think for 1,3 and 4, 'quantitative aptitude' books should help.

for probability try these sites:
