Arithmetic, algebra, and word problems. If you have a solid grasp of those, you're in pretty good shape: most GMAT problems will test those (and only those) directly, and the other problems typically test them indirectly (you still need good arithmetic and algebra to do geometry, probability, etc.)

Hi pratj05,

If you are starting out then I would focus on the core topics of Arithmetic, Algebra, and Word Problems and put on emphasis on data sufficiency, because that is unique to GMAT only. Once you have a handle on these, you can branch out to the other topics. Of course a lot will depend on your initial base line and how many of the concepts you are already familiar with.

Cheers,
Dabral
