  • Uh...could you define hard? it's like the SAT, only for people with college educations. The main part is general knowledge/skills. Why don't you get a GRE study book to get a better idea.

  • I agree with SWasson. You might also consider taking a GRE prep course. Good luck!

  • It looks like there are sample questions online.  You may be able to find a free sample test, too.

  • i remember taking the biology test during my last year of my undergraduate school. then 4 or 5 years later i took it again, and i got the same score both times, i thought for sure the second one would be worse because i had been out of school for a while!
    Anyhow, they are what they are. I think you can get a study guide if it makes you feel better!
    i think the general one has some basic geometry that threw me for a loop!

  • Take a prep class.

    The GRE is much easier than the LSAT
