The first step to achieving a higher GRE quantitative score is to educate yourself about the syllabus. In this article, we will discuss the contents and the format of the GRE Quant section. First things first, you will have 35 minutes to work on the Quantitative Reasoning Section. The entire section consists of quant comparison, problem-solving as well as data interpretation questions. You will have about 1.5 to 2 minutes to solve each question. It is important to understand that question types are not equally distributed. Most likely, you will see the questions in the following order; quantitative comparison questions, problem-solving questions, and data interpretation questions.

QUANTITATIVE COMPARISON QUESTIONS

For the quantitative comparison question, you will be asked to compare two quantities and identify the relationship between the two quantities. You will have a minimum of 7 to 8 quantitative questions.  In order to master the section, you will need to familiarize yourself with shortcut methods that will make the calculation fast and help you complete the section timely.

To master Quantitative Comparison questions, get familiar with shortcut methods that allow you to compare rather than calculate—it tends to be faster.

PROBLEM-SOLVING QUESTIONS

Next comes the problem-solving questions, a standard question that will have 5 choices to choose from. You will be asked to select one or more correct answers. Once you have selected the answers, you will have to enter the answer in the box. Familiarize yourself with the math foundations, and you will be good to go.

Data Interpretation Questions

Be ready to experience a handful of questions with a set of charts/graphs. These will be data interpretation questions. Expect to see at least three questions. Once you find the answer, type the answer as a fraction in the provided boxes.
