    Content of GRE:

    The GRE General Test measures your verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing skills — skills that have been developed over a long period of time and are not related to a specific field of study but are important for all. Here's a look at content covered in the three test sections — Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning and Analytical Writing.


    content covered in the three test sections

    The Quantitative Reasoning section measures your ability to:
    1. Understand, interpret and analyze quantitative information.
    2. Solve problems using mathematical models.
    3. Apply basic skills and elementary concepts of arithmetic, algebra, geometry and data     analysis.

    3. Analytical Writing
