Practice Exam #2

The Quantitative Reasoning test is designed to test your ability to read a math problem, understand the task of the problem, reason logically, calculate, and solve the problem.  The GRE contains two Quantitative Reasoning sections, each 35 minutes and 20 questions in length.

There are three main sections to each Quantitative Reasoning test.  Within each section are various types of questions which cover the basics of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and data interpretation.  

A basic four function on-screen calculator will be available for your usage; however, questions are not calculator intensive.  Calculators should be used for a quick check of an answer or an isolated calculation.

Below is a code describing the type of questions you will see on the GRE Quantitative Reasoning section.
