Preface

This preparation book with TestWare® on CD-ROM for the GRE Chemistry Subject Test is
designed to provide you with five complete practice tests based on the tests most recently administered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS). Each of our tests matches the official test in format and degree of difficulty. Accompanying each test is a complete answer key as well as detailed
and clear explanations to every question. Students can benefit the most by taking the practice test
under actual test-center conditions. After grading the tests, the explanations will provide a means of
refreshing the student with the material before going on to the next practice test.

About This Test
The GRE Chemistry Test is one tool used by graduate school admissions departments to evaluate
prospective students. The test is used in conjunction with a number of other factors, including
undergraduate record, faculty evaluations, and the GRE General Test. The GRE Chemistry Test is
administered three times a year by ETS under the direction of the Graduate Record Examinations
Board. Be sure to take note of graduate school application deadlines when registering to take the
GREs. When choosing the test date, allow enough time for your scores to be processed and received
by the graduate schools before their application deadline passes.

The GRE Chemistry Test is prepared by a committee of experts recommended by the American
Chemical Society. Committee members are selected from various undergraduate faculties. The test
questions submitted by the committee are organized into a standard format consisting of about 130
multiple-choice questions with emphasis placed on the traditional areas of chemistry. The following
is an approximate breakdown of the test’s areas of concentration:

Organic Chemistry—30%
Physical Chemistry—30%
Inorganic Chemistry—25%
Analytical Chemistry—15%

A number of questions will come in set form, based on an experiment or a descriptive paragraph
provided on the exam. All of the questions in the practice tests are based on material commonly
covered in an undergraduate curriculum; therefore, the material is wide-ranging. A realistic
approach to the exam is to determine your strengths and weaknesses in these practice tests and use
the explanations to hone your skills for the actual exam. A list of topics covered on the test follows
this preface.

Random guessing on the test is not recommended because there is a deduction for wrong
answers. If you are able to eliminate one or more of the answer choices, then an educated guess
probably would be to your advantage. The scoring system is as follows: correct answer—one point;
incorrect answer—one-quarter point deduction; omission—no deduction.

The result of this scoring system will give you a “raw score.” From this “raw score” a scaled
score can be obtained by using the conversion table provided in this book. It is this scaled score that
is used by graduate school admissions officers to compare your performance with those of other
applicants. Be aware, however, that, for statistical and other reasons, your score on the actual test
would be expected to vary from your practice-test score.

About this Book and TestWare®
Do not take all of the practice tests in rapid succession. It is also not a good idea to peek at the
material in tests that you have not attempted yet. Once you have taken the two practice tests on CD-ROM, you should have a good sense of the areas that require the most review. Now use the explanations and materials from your coursework to strengthen your knowledge in these areas as well as to refresh yourself in the areas in which you feel confident. After you feel better prepared, you should attempt another practice test and check your progress. Repeat this process until you have completed all of the practice tests in the book.

Be sure to take these practice tests under conditions identical to those you will face at the test
center on the day of the examination. Remove yourself from all distractions and work in a quiet
place where you will not be interrupted. Remember—no books, calculators, rulers, slide rules, or
study aids of any kind will be allowed in the test center.
