Different from vs Different than
Different from means not the same.

e.g -- Sara's taste is different from mine.

Different than -- In US English, than is an alternative to from before a clause.

e.g -- Sara's appearance was very different than I'd expected.

NOTE : On GMAT different than is generally always wrong when comparing two nouns. Different than is only correct when a sentence compares a noun and a clause.

Hence if on GMAT sentence correction you come across a question comparing two nouns and choice with the word different then look for a choice without the phrase different than
