GRE ENGLISH – The Verbal Section
As a large proportion of the students who appear for the GRE test in India are from Engineering and Science background, they normally perceive the verbal section of the GRE Test to be tougher than the quantitative section. Our classroom program accommodates this perception and therefore, has more verbal classes to help you crack this section of the GRE test. As part of the GRE coaching preparation course, the verbal section covers introduction to word origin and techniques on improving your word power and effective ways of retaining what you have learnt. Students enrolling to the GRE coaching Preparation courses will have alphabet wise tests administered to help them master their vocabulary. Adequate number of reading comprehension tests will be administered and analysed in the classes. The variety of questions that you will encounter in these comprehension tests will help you crack the reading comprehension questions in the verbal section.
The quantitative part of the GRE coaching consists of two math sections, each with 20 questions. Of the 40 questions, there are
- 15 quantitative comparison questions 7 and 8 per section:
- 19 discrete quantitative questions, consisting of about 11 multiple-choice questions, 4 multiple –answer questions, and 4 numeric entry questions, approximately evenly split between the two sections:
- 6 data interpretation questions-3 per section-all of which are discrete quantitative questions, mostly multiple-choice.
The Verbal Reasoning measure of the GRE® revised General Test assesses your ability to analyze and evaluate written material and synthesize information obtained from it, analyze relationships among component parts of sentences and recognize relationships among words and concepts.
