GRE Quantitative Section

The Qualitative Reasoning section of the GRE exam has two sections each lasting 35 minute per section and containing 20 multiple choice questions per section. Each question appears either independently as a discrete question or as part of a set of questions called a Data Interpretation set. All of the questions in a Data Interpretation set are based on the same data presented in tables, graphs or other displays of data.

You are allowed to use a basic calculator on the Quantitative Reasoning measure. For the computer-based test, the calculator is provided on-screen. For the paper-based test, a handheld calculator is provided at the test center.

Getting a great score on the Quantitative Reasoning section of the GRE can be tricky for many students particularly if math is not your strong point.
