What's Up with the GRE?

The GRE is meant to test your overall academic ability. It's tough to find a measure that applies to the broad range of disciplines that graduate students study. The skills tested in the GRE are supposed to represent core abilities: verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, and analytical writing. Just follow the links in the right-hand menu to learn more.

You have to take the GRE on the computer. In general this is a positive development for testing. Computer based tests are more efficient because they adapt to your skill level and give you questions that are appropriately challenging. It is a waste of time for you to answer questions that are too hard for you, or that are overly easy. What do you prove when you get them all right or all wrong? The computer zooms in on the gray zone, where your chances of getting a question right are closer to 50-50.

Given the computer adaptive nature of the GRE, you will profit from our tutorials and adaptive practice sessions, which also track your performance and guide you to questions of just the right difficulty. Do you want to learn more about our GRE companion tutorial?
