Most students figure that, once middle school is over, long division no longer continues to play a significant role in their life. Little do they know!
The standardized tests test a good deal of your mathematical knowledge from middle, high, and even elementary school. Don’t take your knowledge of long division, remainders, or basic arithmetic – it is a vital part of doing well on the math section of the GRE!
If you don’t remember how to perform long division, re-learn it! It is tested enough on the test to justify investing some time… especially if it’s been a while since 8th grade.
