GRE Tests and Publications


Because the GRE was revised significantly in August 2011, the current list of available tests and questions is limited. At the moment, only the following revised GREs or GRE questions are available:

1. The Official Guide to the GRE revised Test

This is the most recent set of questions from ETS, the makers of the GRE. The book contains hundreds of questions and 1 complete revised GRE. Students in the PowerScore GRE Courses receive this book for free as part of the course. 

2. PowerPrep II Software

The PowerPrep II software contains 1 complete GRE, but more importnatnly it simulates the testing interface for the computer-based tests. For the paper-based version, download the Practice Book for the Paper-based GRE® Revised General Test.

3. ETS’s GRE Website
The official GRE website contains additional sample GRE questions.

The above questions are the only available official revised GRE questions in release.

Occasionally we are asked about the applicability of older GRE exams to the current, revised GRE format. While there have been many changes, and certain question types have been removed, other types of questions are still applicable. The list below identifies all of the previous ETS officially released GRE tests. 

1. GRE: Practicing to Take the General Test (10th Edition)

This was the last recent set of released tests from ETS prior to the revision. The book contains 7 complete GREs, including the following test forms:  

      • GR86-2
      • GR90-16
      • GR91-17
      • GR91-18
      • GR91-19
      • GR92-1
      • GR92-2

As an aside, the 9th Edition of this book (should you run across it) includes exactly the same tests as the 10th edition.

2. GRE: Practicing to Take the General Test: The Big Book

The Big Book contains 27 previously administered GREs from the 80s and early 90s. While tests from that era have the Analytical Ability section, which no longer appears on the GRE, small portions of the tests are still marginally useful because certain Quantitative and Verbal questions are similar (although not identical) to some of today’s questions.
