Quantitative Section of the GMAT

The Quantitative section of the GMAT measures the ability to reason quantitatively, solve quantitative problems, and interpret graphic data. Two types of multiple-choice questions are used in the Quantitative section of the GMAT exam-Problem Solving and Data Sufficiency.

Problem-Solving and Data-Sufficiency questions are intermingled throughout the section. Both types of questions require knowledge of:

    – arithmetic
    – elementary algebra, and
    – commonly known concepts of geometry.

Problem-Solving questions are designed to measure your ability to:

    – 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.
