Default Re: GRE Chemistry Practice Test

The GRE subject test in chemistry is a standardized test in the United States
created by the Educational Testing Service, and is designed to assess a
candidate's potential for graduate or post-graduate study in the field of chemistry. It contains questions from many fields of chemistry.

The test consists of approximately 130 multiple-choice questions.

A periodic table is printed in the test booklet as well as a table of information
presenting various physical constants and a few conversion factors among SI
units. Whenever necessary, additional values of physical constants are printed with the text of the question.

Test questions are constructed to simplify mathematical manipulations. As a
result, neither calculators nor tables of logarithms are needed. If the solution
to a problem requires the use of logarithms, the necessary values are
included with the question.
