There are two tasks in this section of the GRE, Analyze an Issue and Analyze an Argument.
You will be given 30 minutes (paper and computer versions) for each part of the Analytical Writing section of the GRE.
Neither the paper nor computer version of the GRE provides access to any sort of spelling or grammar correction program. The computer version does have cut and paste, insert, delete, and undo functions.
This section of the test is graded twice, first by a human evaluator and then by a computer program. If the scores are the same, that score will be recorded. If the scores differ, the writing will be graded by another human. Then, the two human scores will be averaged and that score will be final. Scores for this section range between 0 and 6.
The Quantitative Reasoning sections of the GRE basically deal with your understanding of basic math concepts. You should be able to use reasoning within the mathematical methods used. Topics covered include concepts from Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, and Data Analysis. There are no questions from the areas of Calculus, Trigonometry, or other more advanced math courses.
Each of the two Quantitative Reasoning sections of the GRE is timed for 30 minutes (35 minutes each for the paper version).
This portion of the GRE is divided into two sections of 30 minutes each (35 minutes each for the paper version of the test).
The Verbal Reasoning sections of the GRE not only involve reading comprehension, but also measure how well you can make judgments, based on the material you have read. There are three types of questions in these sections, Reading Comprehension, Text Completion, and Sentence Equivalence.
