The GRE (Graduate Record Examination) is an exam of specific and general know-how oriented towards students that desire to be admitted to carry out graduate studies in the United States, as much native as foreigners. It is one of the requirements orderd by the majority of the universities.  Two types of GRE exist, the basic one (GRE General Test) and oriented to students personal matters(GRE Subject Test).

GRE General Test:
It measures the capability of the student in three aspects: English, math and logic. It is not related to matters studied by the student during the career. 
It is quite a basic exam (some questions are of degree level or much more simple), that plays with the lack of time as a main difficulty.  At the same time it has three parts:

  • VERBAL: it measures the know-how of the English language.  One must answer 38 questions in 30 minutes.
  • QUANTITATIVE: measures the students know-how in math.  Consists of 30 questions that one must respond in 30 minutes.
  • ANALYTICAL: measures the logical capability of the student.  There are 25 questions to respond in 30 minutes.

GRE Subject Test:
It can be done in sixteen different areas:  Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics, Revised Education, Engineering, Geology, History, English Literature, Mathematics, Music, Physics, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology.  They try to measure the know-how of the student in their private area.  As it has been indicated previously, the area in which the GRE Subject Test should be carried out can be that in which the career was carried out or in which intends to carry out a doctorate.  This exam is much more complicated  then the General Test, but there are no timed problems.
