GRE » GRE Syllabus » GRE Quantitative Section
The quantitative section of the GRE General test measures your basic mathematical skills, your understanding of elementary mathematical concepts, and your ability to reason quantitatively and solve quantitative problems. Questions that appear in the GRE Quantitative section test your proficiency in arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and data analysis. The test setters, usually, take care to ensure that what is tested is what most students are expected to learn at their high school level of education.
Here is a list of topics in Math that a candidate should include in his or her syllabus list while preparing for the GRE Quantitative section. The list is only a representative indicator of what is normally expected in GRE and does not necessarily include all areas tested in the GRE Quantitative Section.
