Hi,

25 question and 40 minutes is the format of paper based GRE test. Historically OGs have catered to paper based tests while Powerprep software is for the computer based test.

Also, in computer based test the Quant section is 35 minutes and Verbal is 30 minutes long.

Regards,

holy crap it's like they aren't forthcoming with this information?

So what would be the advantage of paper based, other than comfort? it's a hell lot longer, is there any variances in mean scoress or difficulty?

As far as I know there is no experimental section on the paper based GRE.

I do not know anybody who has taken a paper based GRE so really cannot comment if paper based format is easier. However as far as score reporting ans speed of results are concerned computer based GRE is significantly faster.

Wow. This is making me think....

Where are the additional questoin sin verbal and quant, disproportionately? more word problem or comparisons for quant? More sentence fillout for verbal?
