Hi,

I'm planning to take the GMAT/GRE, end of October. I'm not particularly comfortable with quant questions, so could someone advise which exam would be ideal?

Thanks!

GRE Quant is definitely easier, plus you have a calculator and can go back to previous questions. For the GMAT, you have to be solid with paper calculations and very good at knowing when to move on from a question. If these things sound difficult to you, the GRE might be better. That being said, I think GMAT students have a slight edge, as the GMAT can only be used for business school and is, for most people, a more challenging test. The best way to tell is to take an official practice test in each. Then you can compare your scores in each and go from there.

Best of luck in your studies!

Definitely some great points already made, but it's important to add that it isn't just the median difficulty of the questions that is important, but a) how you do compared to the average pool of test takers and b) whether the style of question is something that feels comfortable.

The GRE has a (deserved) reputation for feeling “easier” (its questions tend to be more straightforward), but for that reason is a bit less forgiving (if a test is easier for everyone, then every mistake puts you a bit farther behind everyone else). The GMAT, on the other hand, tests reasoning and critical thinking a bit more heavily, and in doing so ensures that almost everyone will make a few mistakes.
