About the Exam
The GRE General test is used to determine suitability for admission to graduate and business schools. It's made up of several sections, including Verbal Reasoning. This section of the exam is designed to test your ability to analyze written materials, and it contains three different types of questions: reading comprehension, sentence equivalence and text completion. The reading comprehension section is comprised of approximately 10 passages that you must evaluate for meaning. In the text completion section, you'll be asked to fill in the blanks in presented passages to complete meaningful paragraphs and sentences. The sentence equivalent section requires that you complete sentences and then create additional sentences that communicate the same information.
