The math skills required for quantitative section of the GMAT are of a basic standard that should be within the reach of a first-year high school student. You don't need to learn up lots of new formulae but you will need to sharpen up your thinking skills.

Questions are of two main types:

You may be tested on basic arithmetic, algebra, geometry and a few miscellaneous topics (mainly data interpretation and applied math). To see the required level of difficulty and the type of topics tested we have provided you with mini tests on each of the question types.

You are not allowed to use a calculator. You are allowed to do rough work on the scratch pad provided during the GMAT CAT test, so have some rough sheets available when you start the mini tests. Remember, math skills improve with practice.
