# GRE Math Subject Test

Bottom Line: 170 minutes; 66 multiple choice problems;

Scoring: +1 for every correct answer; -1/4 for every incorrect answer (raw score is scaled later)

## Syllabus:

### Calculus – 50%

Material learned in the usual sequence of elementary calculus courses—differential and integral calculus of one and of several variables—includes calculus-based applications and connections with coordinate geometry, trigonometry, differential equations, and other branches of mathematics.

### Algebra – 25%

Elementary algebra: basic algebraic techniques and manipulations acquired in high school and used throughout mathematics. Linear Algebra: matrix algebra, systems of linear equations, vector spaces, linear transformations, characteristic polynomials, and eigenvalues and eigenvectors. Abstract algebra and number theory: elementary group theory, rings and modules, field theory, and elementary number theory.

Introductory real analysis: sequences and series of numbers and functions, continuity, differentiability and integrability, and elementary topology of R and $$R^n$$ .Discretemath: logic, set theory, combinatorics, graph theory, and algorithms. General topology, geometry, complex variables, probability and statistics, and numerical analysis.
