GRE

GRE – Short for Graduate Record Examination, the GRE is a standardized test that one must take to gain acceptance into many graduate programs.  The GRE measures one’s verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, and analytical writing skills.  The GRE is scored much like the SAT, but is out of 1600 points.  The verbal section of the GRE consists of 30 multiple-choice questions that test a person’s vocabulary using analogies, sentence completions, and reading comprehension.  The quantitative section of the GRE consists of 28 multiple-choice questions that test a person’s proficiency in high-school level mathematics. The analytical writing section of the GRE allows one to chose from an “issue task” and “argument task” essay and write a comprehensive piece of their choice.  There is also an experimental section on the GRE that is not graded.
