Th hardest problem from GRE- MAT you ever had

Postby kirov » Thu Apr 09, 2015 1:19 pm

As the title says, what is the hardest problem from GRE you had at the exam? Some rare theorem which was needed for it or some clutch moment or sth like that.

We are required to sign that we will not disclose anything from the test. People can't legally answer this question.

It doesnt have to be from the real GRE, it could be from some preparation or courses you guys have taken.
And is someone preparing for gre except the 4-5 example tests.

A lot of times when the integrand is odd and the interval you're integrating on is symmetric about the 0 and you're doing it for like five minutes and don't notice it.

Also there was one mention of Baire category theorem (you needed that Q is not G_delta), which I thought was a little deep (at least for me)
