    Hi, I know the physics GRE is a multiple choice exam so quick answers are essential. Does anyone know the level of math required to answer the questions? Thanks.

    Arithmetic, high school algebra, and basic calculus (no differential equations).

    This is from about 5 yrs ago, when I took it. It may be a little different now.

    I seem to remember vector calculus being included as well, but I could be misremembering. Gokul's right that you don't necessarily need to solve differential equations, but it would be good to know the origin of the solutions to harmonic oscillator problems, for example.
