What you'll learn on the course
General Test-taking Techniques
You may have heard that you can't study for the GRE. Not true! There are a bunch of things you can do to prepare, and the more time you spend preparing, the better your scores will be. We'll go over the general makeup of the GRE so you'll know exactly what to expect. You'll also learn how to relax when you feel panicky, how to eliminate the wrong answers the tests entice you to choose, how to guess when you're not sure, and how much time to spend on each question.
Overview of GRE Quantitative Questions
You've seen traditional multiple-choice questions before, but have you experienced quantitative comparisons or math questions that can have more than one correct answer? Don't worry; this lesson introduces you to all types of GRE math questions so you'll know exactly what's in store.
Review of Basic Math
You learned arithmetic in grade school, but may have forgotten some of the basics that you'll see in the GRE math sections. We'll review the essentials such as multiplication and division, and clarify concepts that might be a little fuzzy, like exponents and fractions.
Review all the pertinent standard algebra concepts you may not remember from high school, such as variables, factoring, and functions, so that you'll know exactly how to answer algebra-related GRE questions.
Review of Functions and Coordinate Geometry
This lesson continues our math review with a discussion about coordinate geometry. We'll take a look at the basics, such as intercepts and slope; then we'll explore functions and how to graph equations and functions on the coordinate plane.
Review of Plane Geometry
Because geometry is another component of the GRE math questions, we'll review the most tested concepts in today's lesson. Rediscover the properties of angles, triangles, squares, circles, and other shapes so that you can answer questions that ask for those pesky measurements for lines, curves, and angles.
Statistics and Sets Review
You don't have to take a statistics class to master the concepts for the GRE. Most statistics, probability, and other less-familiar math questions are pretty basic. In this lesson, you'll learn how to prepare for them all, including tendency, frequency, and probability.
Answering Quantitative Comparison Questions
Now we'll apply the math concepts we've reviewed to a brand new question type. GRE quantitative comparison questions present two values with three answer options: determine which is greater, equal, or the question doesn't provide enough information to make a determination. Sound confusing? Don't worry—in this lesson we'll review how to deal with this unique question type.
Answering Data Interpretation Questions
The GRE quantitative reasoning sections will likely include a group of data interpretation questions. These questions aren't too difficult if you're prepared for them, and preparing for them is what this lesson is all about! You'll learn how to evaluate charts and graphs, apply your evaluations, and quickly respond to whatever the GRE asks.
Answering Standard Math Questions
The majority of GRE math questions aren't data comparisons or data interpretations. They're the standard math questions you're used to solving: equations, values, and word problems. In today's lesson, you'll practice using the tools you'll need to work through these problems quickly. We'll go over tips to help with multiple-choice questions, choosing correct answers without working out lengthy equations, and strategies for answering number entry questions, too.
Quantitative Reasoning Practice – Part 1
They say that practice makes perfect. With today's lesson, you'll have plenty of opportunity to reach perfection! Through our analysis of a practice quantitative reasoning section, you'll solidify your approach to GRE math questions.
Quantitative Reasoning Practice – Part 2
The final lesson continues our discussion of a sample GRE quantitative reasoning section. We'll focus on how to answer the variety of question formats for standard math questions and practice analyzing data in graphs and charts.
