Advantage Testing GRE Q&A

Can you use a calculator on the GRE?

You cannot take a calculator with you to any GRE administration. The GRE computer platform includes a basic four-function calculator for arithmetic calculations on the Quantitative Reasoning sections. If you are in a country that administers paper tests, you will be provided a basic four-function calculator to use on Quantitative Reasoning sections.

The calculator provided for Quantitative Reasoning is designed to help you with arithmetic computation, not problem solving. You can use it to save time when a problem involves longer computations, but you still need to know the mathematical concepts tested on the GRE. We suggest that you complete your practice tests and other study materials while using a calculator like the one provided on the official test to get used to completing questions with the tools available to you.
