**Prepare for the GRE® Test at Pennstate Review**

HOW PENNSTATE REVIEW HELPS YOU TO GET PERFECT GRE SCORE

The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is a standardized test conducted by ETS (Educational Testing Services), a US based organization. ETS GRE scores are accepted for admission to various disciplines at many graduate and business schools across the globe. GRE aims to measure verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, analytical writing, and critical thinking skills that have been acquired over a long period of learning.. This allows a wide range of universities to use it to benchmark applicants from diverse backgrounds applying to a big mix of degrees.

Pennstate Review helps the prospective graduate students who aspire in pursuing a master's, MBA, specialized masters in business or doctoral degree and take the GRE General Test. GRE scores are used by admissions or fellowship panels to supplement the undergraduate records, recommendation letters and other qualifications for graduate-level study. Our main motto is to assist the students who wish to pursue higher or professional education abroad. We are passionate about equipping students with the prerequisite skills to attempt GRE and strongly believe that adding quality to the knowledge exist in the students and enrich the scope of getting perfect score, an investment you make for yourself .

**GRE at a Glance**

The GRE General Test measures the ability of the students in verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing skills.

**GRE in Detail**

**Verbal Reasoning**

**The Verbal Reasoning section measures the ability to:**

**-** analyze and draw conclusions from discourse; reason from incomplete data; identify author's assumptions and/or perspective; understand multiple levels of meaning, such as literal, figurative and author's intent.

**-** select important points; distinguish major from minor or relevant points; summarize text; understand the structure of a text.

**-** understand the meanings of words, sentences and entire texts; understand relationships among words and among concepts.

**The three types of questions in detail:**

**Reading Comprehension Questions**

There are three types of Reading Comprehension questions:

**Multiple-choice Questions — Select One Answer Choice: **These are the traditional multiple-choice questions with five answer choices of which you must select one.

**Multiple-choice Questions — Select One or More Answer Choices: **These provide three answer choices and ask you to select all that are correct; one, two or all three of the answer choices may be correct. To gain credit for these questions, you must select all the correct answers, and only those; there is no credit for partially correct answers.

**Select-in-Passage: **The question asks you to click on the sentence in the passage that meets a certain description. To answer the question, you choose one of the sentences and click on it; clicking anywhere on a sentence will highlight it.

Reading comprehension passages are drawn from the physical sciences, the biological sciences, the social sciences, the arts and humanities, and everyday topics, and are based on material found in books and periodicals, both academic and nonacademic. The passages range in length from one paragraph to four or five paragraphs.

**Quantitative Reasoning section measures your ability to:**

understand, interpret and analyze quantitative information

solve problems using mathematical models

apply basic skills and elementary concepts of arithmetic, algebra, geometry and data analysis

**Types of questions in the Quantitative Reasoning section:**

Quantitative Comparison Questions

Multiple-choice Questions — Select One Answer Choice

Multiple-choice Questions — Select One or More Answer Choices

Numeric Entry Questions

**The assessment in the Quantitative Reasoning:**

basic mathematical skills

understanding of elementary mathematical concepts

ability to reason quantitatively and to model and solve problems with quantitative methods

**The skills, concepts and abilities are assessed in the following **

**Arithmetic**topics include properties and types of integers, such as divisibility, factorization, prime numbers, remainders and odd and even integers; arithmetic operations, exponents and roots; and concepts such as estimation, percent, ratio, rate, absolute value, the number line, decimal representation and sequences of numbers.

**Algebra**topics include operations with exponents; factoring and simplifying algebraic expressions; relations, functions, equations and inequalities; solving linear and quadratic equations and inequalities; solving simultaneous equations and inequalities; setting up equations to solve word problems; and coordinate geometry, including graphs of functions, equations and inequalities, intercepts and slopes of lines.

**Geometry**topics include parallel and perpendicular lines, circles, triangles — including isosceles, equilateral and 30°-60°-90° triangles — quadrilaterals, other polygons, congruent and similar figures, three-dimensional figures, area, perimeter, volume, the Pythagorean theorem and angle measurement in degrees. The ability to construct proofs is not tested.

**Data analysis**topics include basic descriptive statistics, such as mean, median, mode, range, standard deviation, interquartile range, quartiles and percentiles; interpretation of data in tables and graphs, such as line graphs, bar graphs, circle graphs, boxplots, scatter plots and frequency distributions; elementary probability, such as probabilities of compound events and independent events; conditional probability; random variables and probability distributions, including normal distributions; and counting methods, such as combinations, permutations and Venn diagrams. These topics are typically taught in high school algebra courses or introductory statistics courses. Inferential statistics is not tested.

**Analytical Writing**

**The Analytical writing section measures your ability to:**

articulate complex ideas clearly and effectively

support ideas with relevant reasons and examples

examine claims and accompanying evidence

sustain a well-focused, coherent discussion

control the elements of standard written English

The Analytical Writing section requires you to provide **focused responses** based on the tasks presented, so you can accurately demonstrate your skill in directly responding to a task.

**The Analytical Writing Tasks:**

An Analyze an Issue task

An Analyze an Argument task
