The Graduate Management Admission Test® (GMAT®) is a standardized assessment. Each individual test that is administered contains the same format and areas of content. The test is comprised of three main sections-analytical writing, quantitative reasoning, and verbal reasoning. Each of these areas is measured using different types of questions that have specific instructions for each.

Questions are chosen from a very large pool of test questions categorized by content and difficulty. Only one question at a time is presented to you on the screen. The first question is always of middle difficulty. The selection of each question thereafter is determined by your responses to all previous questions. In other words, the adaptive test adjusts to your ability level-you will get few questions that are too easy or too difficult for you.

You must answer each question and may not return to or change your answer to any previous question. If you answer a question incorrectly by mistake-or correctly by lucky guess-you answer to subsequent questions will lead you back to questions that are at the appropriate level of difficulty for you.

Analytical Writing Assessment
The GMAT with the Analytical Writing Assessment, consists of two essays topics selected by the computer. 30 min are allowed to respond to each topic. One task is to analyse an issue; the other is to analyse an argument.

This section tests elementary mathematical skills. This section contains 37 multiple-choice questions of either two question types, Data Sufficiency or Problem Solving. You are allowed a maximum of 75 minutes to complete the section.

This section contains 41 multiple-choice questions on Reading Comprehension, Critical Reasoning, and Sentence Correction. The duration is 75 min.

Your GMAT score can significantly affect your chances of admission. Without a good score, you have little or no chance of making it to a top school. You need to practice on the computer for the writing section of the GMAT – in which you have to type two essays on the computer in 60 minutes. If you are not used to regularly working on the computer, you might find yourself woefully short of words on the day of the test.

The GMAT requires you to have strong fundamentals in Math (High School) and English grammar.
Note: Probability questions are becoming common on the GMAT. Most test guides are obsolete and do not address these questions.DON'T guess randomly. Always try to eliminate as many answer choices as possible before you confirm your response. For Maths section be Cool with Questions are easy so don't be too quick. You won't get extra score if you finish early!

TIPS on Probability
For Independent Events Probability of A and B P(A and B) = P(A) × P(B).
In other words, the probability of A and B both occurring is the product of the probability of A and the probability of B. Probability of A or B P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B). In other words, the probability of A or B occurring is the sum of the probability of A and the probability of B.

For Dependent Events
If A and B are not independent, then the probability of A and B is
P(A and B) = P(A) × P(B|A) where P(B|A) is the conditional probability of B given A.
# There are m different ways of doing the first part, and there are n different ways of doing the second part. The problem is to find the number of ways of doing the entire job.
answer is:m*n

Be Cool! Its very important for quantitative section. Prepare well on Mode ,Median, Probability, Permutations, Combinations. You may be getting around 4 questions on above topics.

We are listing some TIPS.
0 is not prime number.
1 is not prime number.
2 is prime number.
probability =(Result you are looking)/(Total results).
n!(n factorial)=n*(n-1)*(n-2)*...1
Permutations is arrangement of things in definite order. While in Combination order doesn't matter. Median is the middle value in a set of   numbers above and below it.

Example 1 : Consider G={2,4,7,8,9,12,14}
In this case 8 is median because there lies three other numbers before and after 8.

Example 2 : Consider G={2,4,7,8,9,12}
In this case median will be average of 7 and 8 i.e. 7.5
Mode is the number or range of numbers in a set that occurs the most frequently.
Example Consider G={1,2,4,8,17,2,4,5,6,7,8,2}
In the above set 2 occurs thrice so this is mode.
Range is defined as difference between maximum and minimum numbers in a set.
For above set Range is 17-1 i.e. 16.
Standard Deviation of a set is measure of the set's variation from its mean.
Example Consider two sets G1={3,4,3,4} and G2={10,15,14,16}
Then It can be seen G1 has lower S.D. as compared to G2.
...Practice well!
