GRE Math Practice Test I
"The Warm- up Test"

WTAMU > Virtual Math Lab > GRE Math

Introduction

 This test is what I call a warm-up test.  It is designed to show you what areas of math you are still needing to work on before you take the real GRE. If this is your first visit to our website, please read the disclaimer.

THE REAL GRE TEST THAT YOU WILL BE TAKING ON THE COMPUTER IS AN ADAPTIVE TEST:

 Adaptive means that the level of the questions that you get are dependent on if you answer previous questions correctly or not.  The higher the level of question the higher the overall weight that problem has.  Also note that the design of the test is different from this practice test.  All the problems on this test are on the same page.  On the GRE test you will be taking, one problem at a time will appear on your computer screen.  When a problem appears, you will click on the answer at which point it proceeds to the next problem.

IF THIS PRACTICE TEST IS SET UP DIFFERENTLY THAN THE REAL TEST, HOW WILL THIS HELP ME?????  Good question if I do say so myself.

 You never know the exact questions you are going to get on the test.  However, we do know the concepts over which you will be tested.  I believe that if you have the mathematical concepts down, then you should be able to answer a wide variety of questions that use those concepts.

HOW TO EFFECTIVELY USE THIS WEBPAGE:

 On a piece of paper keep track of your answers to this test.  You have 45 minutes to take the quantitative section of the real test, so to get the most out of this you may want to time yourself at 45 minutes to see how you do against the clock. You DO NOT get formulas on the actual test, so practice it that way. You CANNOT use a calculator on the real test, so practice it that way. You can use scratch paper on the actual test, so by all means practice it that way. Check your answers.  At the end of the test you will see a link to an answer key and an answer key with explanations.  When you get to answer key with explanations page it will have links to the mathematical area(s) that each question comes from in case you need to go back and review.
