Instructions for the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning Sections Information for screen reader users:
This document has been created to be accessible to individuals who use screen readers. You may wish to consult the manual or help system for your screen reader to learn how best to take advantage of the features implemented in this document. Please consult the separate document, GRE Screen Reader Instructions.doc, for important details.
This practice test includes content that some users may wish to skip. For example, some questions require you to complete sentences or longer texts from among several choices. For those questions where it might be helpful to hear the available choices in context, text of the choices in context is included. However, some users may wish to skip this material. Similarly, some questions include detailed figure descriptions that some users may wish to skip because they can get the required information from the accompanying tactile or large print figures. In each case, material that may be skipped is delineated by statements like “Begin skippable content” and “End skippable content” each in the Heading 6 style.
As a reminder, standard timing for each section of the test is provided in the table below:
Analytical Writing 1
Analyze an Issue
Analytical Writing 2
Analyze an Argument
The Quantitative sections include figures and their descriptions. In addition, separate figure supplements, in large print (18 points) and raised-line formats, are available. The large print figure supplement may be downloaded from http://www.ets.org/gre/disabilities. To obtain the raised-line figure supplement or if you have difficulty locating the large print figure supplement on the GRE® web site, contact E T S Disability Services Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. New York time, 1-609-771-7780, 1-866-387-8602 (toll free for test takers in the United States, U.S. Territories, and Canada). E-mail: email@example.com.
In the actual test, your scores for the multiple-choice sections will be determined by the number of questions you answer correctly. Nothing is subtracted from a score if you answer a question incorrectly. Therefore, to maximize your scores it is better for you to guess at an answer than not to respond at all. Work as rapidly as you can without losing accuracy. Do not spend too much time on questions that are too difficult for you. Go on to the other questions and come back to the difficult ones later.
