Could someone please tell me the difference between "agree on" and "agree about"? I found these words in Cambridge Dictionary, but it never mentioned their difference.

You agree ON an issue/view with someone.

Agree about is incorrect.

Thank you for your explanation, rashminet84. Anyway, what you've mentioned "Agree about is incorrect", do you mean that "agree about" is always grammatically incorrect? Or it's not a GMAT's preference.

This example is from Cambridge Dictionaries Online:

My father and I don't agree about/on very much.
