Chapter 20

Practice Exam 3

You’re doing great — now for another. The idea is that on exam day, there’s nothing you’re not expecting, and that comes from practice. Remember to revisit any rough topics in Chapters 4 thru 13.

Like the others in this book, this exam consists of two 30-minute essays, two 30-minute Verbal Reasoning sections (20 questions each), and two 35-minute Quantitative Reasoning sections (20 questions each).

Remember the rules: Take this practice test under normal exam conditions and approach it as you would the real GRE:

  • Work when you won’t be interrupted.
  • Use scratch paper that’s free of any prepared notes.
  • Answer as many questions as time allows. Guess on the remaining questions.
  • Set a timer for each section.
  • Don’t leave your desk while the clock is running on any section.
  • Take a one-minute break after each section and the optional ten-minute break after the first Verbal section.
  • Type the essays. Use a simple text editor, such as Notepad.

Then go to Chapter 21 to check your answers, and review the explanations for all the questions, not just the ones you miss.
