## GRE Data Interpretation Practice Questions

Data Interpretation on the GRE Quant On test day, when you sit down to take your GRE, you will have, among other things, two Quant sections. Each Quant section will have a Data Interpretation problem set towards the end of the section. This GRE Data Interpretation set will present data, information, in some graphical form, […]

## Challenging GRE QC Problems on Number Properties

Here are nine GRE Quantitative Comparison questions, ranging in difficulty from moderate to quite hard (arguably as hard as, or perhaps harder than, anything you would see on the GRE Quant section). Solutions will come at the end of the article. Remember: don’t touch a calculator! 1) 2) 3) […]

## GRE Quantitative Comparison Geometry Practice Problems

Here is a batch of 7 practice QC questions. Explanations will come at the end of the article. 1) In the diagram, AC = 6. CE = 12, DF = 4, and AB is parallel to DE. 2) 3) In the diagram, JL = 4 and JK = 6. 4) In […]

## Mean, Median and Mode on the GRE

Over the last six months, I’ve gone through quite a few Revised GRE prep books. One thing I’ve noticed missing is difficult questions relating to mean, median, and mode. Sure, most books describe how to find the average, and what the difference between the mean and the median. Many already know the above, but mean, […]

## GRE Math Challenge – Numeric Entry

Below are some tough word problems that require both close reading and sharp problem solving skills. To make these already difficult questions even more fiendish, I’ve made each a Numeric Entry question (sorry, no cool boxes). In some of the questions below, there are a few possible solution paths, some more elegant than others. If […]

## GRE Math – Exponent Challenge

A relatively common exponent question on the GRE will ask you to figure out the units digit of some number raised to an exponent, which usually results in a number roughly equivalent to the number of grains of sand in the Sahara, and thus out of reach of the GRE calculator. Take a look at […]

## GRE Math: Solving Quantitative Comparisons

First off, here’s a tricky algebraic QC: 1) x > -3 If you find this puzzling, this article discusses an efficient method for handling such problems. Before we talk about that, a quick refresher on a few basic ideas dealing with equations and inequalities. Intro to Arithmetic Suppose you have an equation, P = Q. […]
