    Host: What level of Math is covered on the GMAT?

    Jeff Glazer: The GMAT has two basic types of questions, one is generally speaking referred to as problem solving, this comes with a wide range of math concepts but it is your basic single question with five multiple choice answers. The other part which is unique to the GMAT exam is whats called Data Sufficiency, these are very interesting questions where you are given a question that in and of itself cant be answered followed by two statements and your job is to figure out whether you can solve the original question utilizing one or both of the two given statements or even taking together its still unsolvable.
