GRE Test Preparation

The GRE is the standard entrance exam to graduate school in the United States, and is accepted by many international universities as well. Slightly more challenging than the SAT or ACT, it is designed to measure analytical writing, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking, and verbal reasoning skills. It assesses the way you think, reason, and solve problems, more than it measures knowledge of any specific subject. When you’re ready to prepare for graduate school, a GRE tutor can help you brush up on old skills and get ready to ace the test.

This test is challenging for most people who haven’t been in school full-time for a while. As a computer adaptive exam, the GRE is taken on computers at testing centers, and the questions presented vary depending on the student’s performance on previous questions. Preparing for the GRE is a major commitment, and a GRE tutor can help you make the most of your studying time.

 

The GRE Has Four Sections:

 

QUANTITATIVE (45 minutes)

  • 28 multiple choice questions quantitative reasoning
  • High-school level math (arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and data analysis)

VERBAL (30 minutes)

  • 30 multiple-choice questions
  • Sentence completion, analogies, antonyms, and reading comprehension questions

ANALYTICAL WRITING (75 minutes)

  • Two essays: “Analysis of an Issue” essay (30 minutes) and “Analysis of an Argument” essay (45 minutes)
  • Tests for concise communication of ideas, evaluation of evidence, logical reasoning, and correct English

EXPERIMENTAL SECTION (varied length)

  • May be verbal, quantitative, or analytical writing;  consists of new questions being tested for future use
  • Score on this section does not count toward overall score, but the section is not identified as experimental
