In terms of how well they correspond with the actual exam.

There are 5 actual old PGRE exams, 86, 92, 96, 01, and the relatively recently released 08. More than enough sample exams, don't waste your time or take the risk on anything else in terms of samples.

I'd respectfully like to disagree - the site the OP refers to is my site, the one I mentioned on this forum back in the summer, and we have gone to great lengths to make our exams as close as possible to the ones which are now being given by ETS. Most people on this forum will agree that the older tests (86, 92, and 96) are far from representative, and we've already had some very positive feedback from people who took the October test, saying that we nailed the distribution of content and managed to get quite close to replicating actual test questions.

Unless you've actually looked at our exams, don't post misleading information. We're not the Purple Book.

The first of the exams was REALLY hard though (and several people agreed with me on that). Would you say that the 2nd and 3rd are more representative?

Also - are you able to post subject reviews for the other two subjects on Friday so that we could review them just before the test? Thanks!

Never even heard of it. Get some SEO. Should be able to outsource it these days very cheaply

You won't do extremely well on the GRE unless you overtrain. I thought these tests were extremely useful, to tell you the truth. My only regret is that I had not used them prior to the October test. What can you do?

Seconded. Don't even outsource it, this is a super non-competitive search field. Google SEO if you're not familiar, then use Google Keywords Tool @ https://adwords.google.com/o/Targeting/ ... earch.none

Most people will find your product through online search, no reason you shouldn't be the top result for pretty much all relevant queries.
