The problem solving section is designed to test your problem solving skills, not your ability to perform such problems mathematically. Advanced math topics like trigonometry and calculus are not covered on the Test. So all you have to know to have a high score on this section is basic (high school level) arithmetic, geometry and algebra. A Quantitative refresher is sufficient to have mastery on this section.

Simple Arithmetic, Simple Algebra, Averages, Ratios & Proportions, Percentage, Sets, Work problems, Speed and Motion, Combinations, Probability, and Geometry are basic topics covered on the test. You need not to go in details of mathematics including Calculus, Trigonometry, Binomial theorem, Conics, and so on.

The important item you must practice is simple calculations. If you spend more time on simple calculations during the test then you'll not be able to spend time on the understanding of the questions.

Drawing a picture can sometimes help students visualize the problem more clearly. It can also help students clarify the operations they need to carry out.

About 35% of your total questions on the Math Section will be made up of word problems. Though the actual math topics can vary, it is important to develop a consistent process for answering them.

In real life, math problems don’t usually present themselves as 3 + 5. Instead, things are usually a bit more complex. To show this, sometimes, math curriculum creators use word problems to help students see what happens in the real world.
