Hi Juby,

Basic knowledge of Standard Deviation is something that you will need to know for GRE Quant. The percents that Chris talks about in the video are part of the foundational knowledge that you will need for the test.

To learn more about standard deviation, I recommend reading through these resources. They will explain the concept and talk about where these percents come from.

I hope that this helps!
