Educational Testing Service
This site is extremely helpful and well worth a visit -- even though you may think of ETS as the enemy (since they are the ones who created this torture, oops, test). Included are practice questions, info about both the old pencil-and-paper test and the new, adaptive, computer-based General Test. If you're thinking about taking the CBT you definitely will want to see how it's different (and perhaps better, or worse, for you). If you're in a hurry, check the GRE at a Glance section or go to the Fast Facts page for quick, current info, including dates, phone numbers, etc. You can download practice materials and other info from the ETS Free Publications section.
