Tackling the GRE Mathematics Subject Test (Organized by MSGSO)

  • Time: 3:00 PM – 3:50 PM
  • Day: Friday (10/04/19)
  • Location: Haag Hall 201

Speaker: Bryan Harris

Audience: Anyone thinking about going to grad school in mathematics, and anyone curious to know what the test expects out of its takers. This talk is open to the public.

Abstract: The Mathematics Subject GRE exam, administered by ETS, is a standardized test used by many graduate programs in mathematics to measure the overall mathematical ability and general knowledge of prospective students. In this talk, we will briefly discuss ETS’s website and how to find general information about the exam. We will look at and discuss the released 2001 exam to get a basic idea of what subjects are on the test, what the test makers expect out of those sitting for the exam, and various tips and strategies for achieving one’s best score on the exam. We will then have the audience work on select problems under similar constraints to the actual exam.
