Description of the Test
The GRE is divided into three scored sections and one or two un-scored sections.
Verbal : 30 questions - (30 minutes)
* Question types include: Analogies, sentence completion, antonyms, and reading comprehension.
* Tests vocabulary, verbal reasoning skills, and the ability to read with understanding and insight.
Quantitative : 28 questions - (45 minutes)
* Question types include: Problem solving, quantitative comparison, and graph problems.
* Tests basic mathematical skills, ability to understand mathematical concepts, and quantitative reasoning skills.
Analytical : 35 questions - (60 minutes)
* Question types include: Logical reasoning and logic games.
* Tests ability to understand and analyze arguments and to understand and draw logical conclusions.
Experimental Section
In addition to the three scored sections, there may be one 'experimental' section that looks like one of the scored sections; but does not count toward your score. ETS uses the experimental section to pre-test the questions that will show up on the scored sections of future GREs. It looks just like one of the scored sections, so you won't be able to identify it.
Research Section
Sometimes there's a fifth section called the 'research section', which is optional. This one too doesn't count toward your score.


Hope that helped you...

Gaurav, how is your Vocab section? I do not know about the exact breakup of the GRE now, but back when I was doing my engineering, the word lists were pretty important. And 3rd sem was just about the time to be preparing your wordlists. If you think you are rock solid on that front, then focus on the other aspects.

Hi Gaurav,

For GRE,prepare from Barrons for both sections.Concentrate more on verbal part as it requires application rather than memory these days.Quant can be easy if you have strong basics.As you have a lot of time,improve your writing skills for scoring high in AWA as well.

You have provided great information about GRE Lord EC.

@ Gauravkelkar and Kirthika : As told by Lord EC, GRE has a section dedicated to English Vocabulary. You may be a genius in English right now. But, if you continue using SMS language as you have done in all your posts, your level will degrade, and I am not joking on this matter. Please compose your words and edit and format the post before posting in any thread. It is a good habit. This SMS language has deteriorated peoples vocabulary so much that in England many teenagers and youngsters don't know the proper spellings and pronunciation of many words.
