AREAS OF CONCERN FOR GRE QUANT SECTION:

The GRE Quant Section concentrates primarily on 4 major areas namely

HOW TO SCORE IN ARITHMETIC:

HOW TO SCORE IN ALGEBRA:

HOW TO SCORE IN GEOMETRY:

  • You could begin by mastering primary planar geometry involving lines, angles and basic shapes.
  • Geometric formulas for basic calculations should be memorized.
  • Diagrams must always be constructed for these types of questions. Illustrations are always a shortcut to solving geometry problems efficiently in lesser time than required.

    HOW TO SCORE IN DATA ANALYSIS:

    • Data Analysis includes questions from statistics involving mean, median, mode, frequency distributions, charts, tables and graphs.
    • Tackling these questions begin with scanning through the presented data to get a fundamental idea and focusing only on the conditions required for answering the questions.
    • It is mandatory to keep an eye open to characteristics such as axes of graphs, units of measurements and orders of magnitude to avoid common conversion errors.
    • More the practice, better are the chances of scoring in these questions.

    GENERAL TIPS:

    • Practice, practice and more practice is the only way to achieve perfection.
    • Sample tests must be continuously taken in order to get acquainted with the question types and the time that you could afford to spend over each.
    • Keep tracking your tests for the questions which you get wrong, spend more time practicing those questions.
    • Scratch paper must be used to minimize errors and to avoid confusion.
    • Good sleep is absolutely essential for proper brain functioning and reducing panic attacks.
