1. 在新GRE考试中，每个Verbal Section有10道填空题，所以一场考试我们会遇到的填空题目是20个(数学加试)-30个(语文加试)。一般建议每个Section填空部分的做题时间是10min-12min。
2. 在《新GRE官方指南》(OG)中，填空题目分为Text Completion和Sentence Equivalence两大类题型。其中Text Completion包括单空题、双空题、三空题，而Sentence Equivalence也就是我们俗称的“6选2”，但一般我们将这四类题型合并，统称GRE填空。
4. 正常而言，每场考试，所有考生遇到的第一个Verbal Section的题目和分布是一致的，填空题型的分布是2、3、1、4，即2个单空、3个两空、1个三空、4个6选2，不要觉得三空题太少就掉以轻心，这个Section有长阅读。填空题是自适应考试，ETS会根据考生在前一个语文section的综合表现，去安排单空，双空还有三空题目在后续的section中数量。
7. GRE填空方法论：GRE 填空考察的主要是单词和逻辑两方面能力。1.确定与空格相关的逻辑关系 2.确定与空格相关的语义。
8. 填空题目一方面来自ETS自己编写，一方面来自The New York Times，The New Yorker，Science， Nature等外国报纸、杂志、期刊的节选改编，这些题目的来源，我们称之为 “题源”，我们会对题源进行分析。

填空的题目其实就是在完整的信息里面挖出几个空，需要考生根据已知的信息，将空格未知的信息在选项里面挑选出合适的选项进行填空。如果在申请的时候，verbal reasoning部分只需要取得一个155分左右的分数的话，更多的同学应该把精力投入到单词背诵以及读懂句子这样的基本功的训练里面。因为在文字推理部分填空也会占半壁江山。其中有一种题型它的题目数量是一定的，就是sentence equivalence这种6选2的题目，在10个填空的题目里面固定会有4道同义句填空(句子等价题)。ETS会根据考生在前一个语文section的综合表现，去安排单空，双空还有三空题目在后续的section中数量。根据它的出题的一些角度，我们应该如何把这些题目在考场上从容地给它做出来呢?
