Hi everybody I have only every sat for the GMAT and I am now considering also sitting for the GRE at some point in the next 6 months. I have done some reading and the content of the GMAT and GRE seem relatively different in a variety of ways. I tend to have a lot more trouble in the Quant than the Verbal, I also have good verbal scores without any studying. 95% of my GMAT studying was on quant, I kept getting tricked and stuck on the exam and I lacked strategies. I went ahead and I took a GRE diagnostic exam along with some GRE question packs and I get around 90% of the quant questions correct. I find the GRE quant a lot more straightforward while the GMAT quant constantly troubled. GRE quant also seemingly does not require any strategies that you need to excel at GMAT quant. I would like some advice from somebody who has taken both of these exams on how the quant sections really differ. The verbal sections will not be that big of an issue for me. Another thing I like about the GRE is that the exams are roughly the same length, the sections are shorter and more segmented than the GMAT. Also if anybody could point me towards some good GRE practice exams I would really appreciate it.

Thank you

Go for it mate.
I gave the GRE exam and not the GMAT.
Schools are nowadays accepting GRE in record numbers.

If you want the access to MGRE tests (6 mock tests) write to me and I will provide you the same.
