About the GMAT Quant section:

The GMAT Quantitative section is often feared since it requires knowledge of mathematics and quantitative skills. However, the good news is that the Quant section only requires knowledge of what is generally taught in secondary school algebra and geometry classes.

The Quant Section of the GMAT Exam consists of 37 questions, which should be answered within 75 minutes. It contains two major types of question – problem solving and data sufficiency.

The Quantitative section of the GMAT exam can help the admissions committee determine which students are capable of solving problems using quantitative data and showing good judgement when they have sufficient information to make decisions.
