Practice tests

The GRE is a test of your math and verbal skills, AND it’s a test of your test-taking abilities, which include endurance and time management. So, be sure to take several full-length practice tests as part of your preparation. It's best to achieve your target scores on at least two practice tests before taking an official test. 

Note: If you purchase The Official Guide to the GRE Revised General Test (a must-have resource for all GRE prepsters), you will get two full-length paper tests as well as a CD-ROM containing the official PowerPrep II software, which contains another two practice tests.  

Below are more sources of GRE practice tests.

Official PowerPrep II GRE Practice Tests from ETS (FREE)

If you haven’t purchased The Official Guide to the GRE Revised General Test (which comes with a CD copy of the PowerPrep software), you can still access the official PowerPrep II GRE practice tests. These tests use official GRE questions and the official GRE scoring algorithm. So, they are, by far, the best way to gauge your GRE readiness.
