Has anyone here taken the GRE? I just finished my GMAT and now my girlfriend is considering taking the GRE. I am considering taking the powerprep GRE to get an idea but does anyone here have any insight into how different it is?

Well , powerprep is closest to what you will get to actual test. My scores were usually 1400+ on it and in the actual test i scored more than that!!!

Do kaplan, Arco and Powerprep, they will do the job, i suppose!!

Thanks for the info - how does the test compare content wise to the GMAT and which would you say is more challenging?

I scored a 710 on the GMAT after a lot of hard work - and I am wondering how I can help my girlfriend prepare for the GRE...if the tests are similar maybe my GMAT insight could benefit her...

I think the following is understood:

MCAT > LSAT > GMAT > GRE

Of course they're not equally spaced out. But I did look at the GRE and it looks weird. The content is quite familiar, but the format is strange. I think it takes a bit getting used to like the data sufficiency.

Also, I think they test vocabulary and analogies.
