Mastering the GRE: Section by Section http://www.scholarships.com/Resources.aspx 1 Quantitative Section: Practice Questions Most students find that improving quantitative section scores is much easier than improving scores in other sections. Even students that bristle at the sight of numbers may find that brushing up on old math skills is less time consuming than quickly absorbing the dictionary (although lists of commonly tested GRE words do help significantly). The quantitative section of the GRE lasts 45 minutes and is composed of 28 questions. Arithmetic, data analysis, quantitative comparison, algebra, geometry, and problem solving skills are tested. Most questions require the selection of a correct answer from a list. Once in a while, a student may encounter a question that asks them to enter their answer in a box. You will not be able to use a calculator to solve these (or any) problems. Score requirements may vary by school and program, but the average quantitative score is 591 out of a possible 800. (This is based on ETS data, and represents results from all examinees tested between July 1, 2002 and June 30, 2005.) Once you complete a few sample tests, you might begin to see a pattern in the problems. Geometry shortcuts and beneficial techniques are likely to make each practice test easier than the one before it. To get you started, we have prepared some practice problems similar to those you will find on the exam. 1. Quantity A Quantity B X Y A. Quantity A is greater. B. Quantity B is greater. C.
