Question Difficulty

Are the questions in the practice sections harder than the actual GRE or about the same?

Hi @Maisy, thanks for posting!

The GRE is an adaptive difficulty test. Basically, the difficulty of the question pool spans a wide range from easy to hard, and they increase or decrease the difficulty of questions depending on how you do.

Our questions also have a wide range of difficulty, and you’ll find that they are very similar to the actual GRE. We’ve received past GRE exams carefully to ensure that we have good coverage. Some of the questions are nearly identical because there are limited ways to test a concept, whereas others might test the same concept in different ways to ensure that you understand the core of it, and can answer a similar question correctly.
