The types of questions which are "typical" range from test to test. When I took the test, I prepared heavily in calculus and linear algebra, but it seemed like more questions than normal asked about abstract algebra and complex analysis than I was expecting. There were some questions on some very fringe topics in probability and linear algebra, too, which I really did not expect. Also, I focused on probability and statistics when I was an undergraduate, and some of the questions I found on the exam when I took it I realized could only be answered correctly if the test taker had taken some advanced course in probability. So that seemed kind of unfair in my opinion to people who didn't specialize in probability in undergraduate school. That being said, the best way to prepare for the mGRE is to have a solid understanding of and memory of theorems from calculus, analysis, abstract algebra, and linear algebra. studying those areas the most will be your best bet when it comes to doing well on the mGRE. You will undoubtedly run into a weird question about graph theory, or some tricky problem in combinatorics/number theory, but there is no great way to prepare for those in a month or two. Even if you had 6 months to prepare, I would say to devote all that time if you could to analysis, algebra, and calculus. I'm glad I don't have to take that test again! XD
