Verbal Reasoning (2 Sections) - Approximately 20 questions in each section to be answered in 30 minutes for each section.
Unscored (Experimental) - The number of questions and time Vaires.
Research - The number of questions and time Vaires The Total duration of the entire Test Format is 3 Hours 45 minutes.
The Analytical Writing Assessment section of the test measures your ability to think critically and communicate complex ideas through writing. The Quantitative section of the GRE exam measures your ability to reason mathematically, solve quantitative problems and interpret graphic data.
This section contains the following types of questions:

• Quantitative Comparison
• Numeric Entry
The Verbal Reasoning section of the test measures your ability to understand and evaluate what you read and to recognize basic conventions of standard written English.
The section contains the following types of questions:

1. What Does GRE Stand for? (What Do the Initials GRE Stand for?)
The GRE stands for Graduate Record Examinations. It has two parts: General Test and Subject Test. The General Test consists of analogy, antonym, reading comprehension, sentence completion, problem solving, and quantitative comparison.
2. What is the GRE?
The GRE General Test is an examination designed by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) to measure the verbal, quantitative, and analytical writing skills you have developed in the course of your academic career. High GRE scores strongly correlate with the probability of success in graduate school: the higher you score, the more likely you are to complete your graduate degree. For this reason, many graduate and professional schools — and now business schools — require applicants to take the GRE General Test.
3. Why should I take a GRE® Subject Test?
GRE® Subject Tests measure achievement in specific subjects, and can help you stand out from other applicants by emphasizing your knowledge and skill level in a specific area of study. The Subject Tests offered are: Biology, Chemistry, Literature in English, Mathematics, Physics and Psychology.
4. Is the GRE hard?
Going to war is hard. Losing a loved one is hard. Titanium is hard. The GRE? Let us put it this way: The GRE is a beatable test. All of the verbal and quantitative concepts tested on the GRE can be learned. It’s not an intelligence test, but rather a test of your ability to reason through challenging questions and apply vocabulary analytical writing, and mathematical concepts you’ve already learned at various points in your academic career.
Now, what makes the GRE challenging is that it may have been a long time since you’ve even thought about some of the quantitative topics tested — you know, things like the circumference of a circle or finding the roots of a quadratic equation. But don’t worry, that’s what our comprehensive online GRE prep courses are for — to help you dust off those math and verbal cobwebs and dominate every question type thrown your way.
Oh, and for what it’s worth, most people find the GMAT to be a more quantitatively-rigorous exam than the GRE.
5. What’s the difference between the GRE vs GMAT?
The GRE and GMAT are more alike than they are different. They both test roughly the same mathematical concepts, they both test your ability to comprehend what you read, and they both test your analytical reasoning ability, though in slightly different ways. The difference between the two exams comes in how they test these concepts. On the GMAT you’ll find a unique quantitative question type called Data Sufficiency, for example, while on the GRE you’ll find the infamous Quantitative Comparisons questions. On the GMAT you’ll find an explicit Critical Reasoning section, while the GRE is more vocabulary-intensive with its Sentence Completion questions. And of course the scoring metrics are different as are some of the logistical test-taking options (e.g. you can skip questions and come back to them on the GRE, whereas you can’t on the GMAT).
6. GRE Versus TOEFL?
The TOEFL, which is also provided by ETS, is a test of English as a foreign language designed for international students who want to study in the United States. Students who have obtained a degree in an English speaking country is waved for the test.
7. GRE vs MCAT?
MCAT stands for Medical College Admission Test and is for medical school admission. GRE at no way can substitute for MCAT.
