Consisting of three main parts delivered in English and administered in test centers around the world, the GMAT exam measures verbal, mathematical, and analytical and writing skills that you have developed over time. The exam helps graduate programs assess your qualifications for advanced study in business and management. Your scores are good for five years, so you have the ability to start your graduate studies now or down the road.
Analysis of an Argument
The AWA consists of a 30-minute writing task- Analysis of an Argument.
The arguments presented on the test concern topics of general interest related to business or a variety of other subjects. A specific knowledge of the essay topic is not necessary; only your capacity to write analytically is assessed.
For the Analysis of an Argument section, you will need to analyze the reasoning behind a given argument and write a critique of that argument. You are not being asked to present your own views on the subject.
The Integrated Reasoning is a 30 minute section of 12 questions with a separate score.
The Quantitative section of the GMAT measures the ability to reason quantitatively, solve quantitative problems, and interpret graphic data.
Problem-Solving and Data-Sufficiency questions are intermingled throughout the section. Both types of questions require knowledge of:
• Elementary algebra, and
• Commonly known concepts of geometry.
Problem-Solving questions are designed to test:
• Basic mathematical skills,
• Understanding of elementary mathematical concepts, and
• The ability to reason quantitatively and solve quantitative problems.
Data-Sufficiency questions are designed to measure your ability to:
• Analyze a quantitative problem,
• Recognize which information is relevant, and
• Determine at what point there is sufficient information to solve a problem.
The Verbal section of the GMAT exam measures your ability to:
• Read and comprehend written material,
• Reason and evaluate arguments, and
• Correct written material to conform to standard written English.
Reading Comprehension Questions
Reading Comprehension passages are up to 350 words long. Topics contain material from the social sciences, physical or biological sciences, and business-related areas (marketing, economics, human resource management, etc).
Because the Reading Comprehension section of the GMAT exam includes passages from several different content areas, you may be generally familiar with some of the material; however, no specific knowledge of the material is required. All questions are to be answered on the basis of what is stated or implied in the reading material.
Critical Reasoning Questions
Critical Reasoning questions are designed to test the reasoning skills involved in making arguments, evaluating arguments, and formulating or evaluating a plan of action. Questions are based on materials from a variety of sources. No familiarity with the specific subject matter is needed.
Sentence Correction Questions
Sentence Correction questions ask you which of the five choices best expresses an idea or relationship. The questions will require you to be familiar with the stylistic conventions and grammatical rules of standard written English. You must also demonstrate your ability to improve incorrect or ineffective expressions.
