About the Exam
The GRE General exam is intended for candidates looking for admission into business and graduate school. The Analytical Reasoning portion of the exam tests your analytical writing and critical thinking skills, although it does not test your knowledge of specific content. Questions on this part of the exam are broken into two categories: issue analysis and argument analysis. In each section, you'll be required to assess the strengths and weaknesses of an argument or issue and assess claims in order to evaluate the soundness of the argument or form your own opinion about the issue with evidence. You will have 30 minutes to complete each part of the Analytical Reasoning portion of the exam, for a total of one hour.
GRE Analytical Writing Exam Preparation & Registration
To help take the stress out of preparing for the Analytical Writing portion of the GRE exam, we've laid out all the topics you'll need to know in this course. Our easy-to-follow video lessons outline the essay planning process, how to craft your argument and the essay writing process. Here you'll also find an overview of the GRE exam and the Analytical Writing portion specifically.
If you want to take the GRE General Exam, you'll need to set up an account online, pay the required fees and then register for the exam you'd like to take. At this time, you'll be able to select your testing location and time. On test day, candidates are asked to arrive 30 minutes prior to their test time with valid photo identification that matches the name used to set up the test takers' online account. Please note, any personal items brought with you to the exam, such as watches and mobile phones, are not allowed in the testing area.
