    Jeff Glazer, co-founder of Griffon Preparation Services, explains what level of math is covered on the GMAT.

    Jeff Glazer: My name is Jeff Glazer with Griffon Preparation Services and we are going to discuss the quantitative section of the GMAT test. The math on the GMAT generally speaking should not exceed what most people learn by 10th or 11th grade high school, also the math wont be so complicated to require calculator because you are not allowed a calculator on the test. This means that you will generally be dealing with some basic algorithm including 1 and 2 and maybe even 3 variable equations, some basic statistics and a little bit of permutations combination and probability. But there wont be any advanced trigonometry sin, cosine or tangent and there wont be any calculus, so there wont be any derivatives or integrals.
