GRE Quantitative Reasoning Section

The Quantitative Reasoning section on the GRE comes with mostly straightforward questions – you know the concept; you get the right answer – Just perfect! If your feeling is, my thoughts just fade out when I dive deep into numbers, then GRE is the test to consider. The Multi-Stage nature of the test adapts the test section wise. Your performance in the first section decides the level of difficulty for the second section. Smarter you prove in the first section harder the questions get in the second section in turn the overall performance on the test will be enhanced. The section’s score ranges from 130 to 170 with two quant sections that include 20 questions each with 35 minutes per section.

The quantitative reasoning ability is tested across four types of questions

1) Quantitative Comparison
2) Multiple-choice Questions – Select One Answer Choice
3) Multiple-choice Questions – Select One or More Answer Choices
4) Numeric Entry Questions

The concepts on the GRE are tested from

  1. ArithmeticAlgebra
  2. Geometry
  3. Data Analysis
