                 you'll do in graduate or business school and demonstrates that you are
                 ready for graduate-level work.
            •    Verbal Reasoning — Measures your ability to analyze and evaluate
                 written material and synthesize information obtained from it, analyze
                 relationships among component parts of sentences and recognize
                 relationships among words and concepts.
            •    Quantitative Reasoning — Measures problem-solving ability, focusing
                 on basic concepts of arithmetic, algebra, geometry and data analysis.
            •    Analytical Writing — Measures critical thinking and analytical writing
                 skills, specifically your ability to articulate and support complex ideas

                 concepts of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, probability and statistics

            •    With increased emphasis on data interpretation and real-life
                 scenarios, this section has new types of questions that require you to
                 show your quantitative reasoning ability. To reduce the emphasis on
                 computation, the computer-based test includes an on-screen
                 calculator. And, if you are taking the paper-based test, a calculator
                 will be provided at the test center.

            ANALYTICAL WRITING

            •    The Analytical Writing section measures your ability to:

            •    articulate complex ideas clearly and effectively

            •    support ideas with relevant reasons and examples

            •    examine claims and accompanying evidence

            •    sustain a well-focused, coherent discussion

            •    control the elements of standard written English

            •    The Analytical Writing section requires you to provide focused
                 responses based on the tasks presented, so you can accurately
                 demonstrate your skill in directly responding to a task.
