important

the verbal and quantitative sections in the gre general test in this
publication contain questions
written and administered prior to 1995. for this reason, some of the
material covered in the questions
may be dated. for example, a question may refer to a rapidly changing
technology in a way that was
correct in the 1980s and early 1990s, but not now. in addition,
educational testing service\u00ae ets\u00ae has
revised and updated its standards and guidelines for test questions so
some questions may not meet
current standards. questions that do not meet current ets standards,
and would not appear in gre
tests administered today, are marked with an asterisk (see pages 35
and 44).

position in the test after the analytical writing
