I was wondering if people knew what shows up in
LABORATORY METHODS: 6% and
SPECIALIZED TOPICS: 9%
from hearsay or experience?

welcome to the forum.

The "specialized topics" and "laboratory methods" components are described in more detail on the ETS website: Right Here

Have you seen this?

Also, if you look at the 4 old practice tests, you'll get an idea of some of the types of problems that fall into these categories. There's always a question on reading logarithmic paper, and there's some about half lives and there's a few circuit analysis questions (which technically, according to ETS, are considered laboratory methods) and some on crystal lattices etc...

Oh sorry i meant recollections of specific instances from past pgres not too specific but
things like the log scale question or what would fit into astronomy/cosmology from the other portion.

we all signed agreements to not discuss the specific content of the tests we took, so you're better off looking at the ets website and the old tests to get an idea of the types of questions.

I didnt want anything so specific it would violate that agreement like (lissajous figure for 3:2 ratio).
I was thinking more along the lines of quizivex quote ie general concepts that fit into other not specific questions that fit into other category..
