I worked through the chapters earlier this summer, and I've worked through the first of three sample exams. I highly recommend the book as a review for the PGRE as long as you're already familiar with all of the topics. The problems assigned do tend to be more difficult than those provided by ETS however. The last chapter is particularly useful as it focuses on test strategies useful for the test, such as examining limiting cases, orders of magnitude estimations, dimensional analysis, etc.
