Total testing time is approximately 3 hours and 30 minutes. The directions at the beginning of each section specify the total number of questions in the section and the time allowed for the section. The Analytical Writing tasks are always presented first.

Unlike the previous paper-based GRE General Test and the GRE Subject Tests, which use separate answer sheets, the paper-based GRE revised General Test is self-contained: all responses for the Analytical Writing tasks and the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning sections must be entered in the test book itself.

Dear Sir/Madam, I am plannig to take GRE after some preparation. As I am living in a very poor country, I couldn't afford to buy books that prepare me for the test. I thus have no option rather than using such opportunities to succeed.

Best.
