Master theTM GRE General Test 2018 is your guidebook for navigating the GRE General Test. The GRE General Test is designed to effectively predict test-takers’ overall perfor- mance in graduate school. Its emphasis is on the test-takers’ ability to think. You’ll see that in the design of questions.

You’ll find reading comprehension questions that ask you to critique the validity of an author’s argument or ask you to identify information that supports an author’s argument. Other questions in the Verbal Reasoning section ask you to select the best word choice based on analyzing the context of a sentence or passage. In the Analytical Writing section, you’ll be asked to evaluate someone else’s argument and to develop an argument of your own. To de-emphasize computation and emphasize the thought processes used to arrive at answers in the Quantitative Reasoning section, you will find an on-screen calculator for the computer- based version. If you are taking the paper-based version, you will be given a calculator.
