Our system generates millions of unique quizzes with randomized text and variables from over 120+ GRE quantitative question templates, ensuring you're learning the core concepts instead of simply recalling answers. After answering a question, you can review a step-by-step walkthrough of the math and logic involved.

Success spotlight
After over a year of trying to complete GRE video-based prep programs and not getting very far, I stumbled across Achievable. The textbook's organization paired with spaced practice questions are both ingenious as well as so intuitive that it is hard to believe that other programs don't organize their material in this way. In addition to the actual test content, the textbook helps train you to have a better mindset so anxiety doesn't get in the way. I've previously struggled with test anxiety and was able to easily overcome it because of the efficiency strategies in the textbook and the mindset conversations covered in the podcast. I think this program is one of a kind and the proof is in my test results. I am super grateful for the Achievable GRE program. Thank you!

GRE or GMAT - Which should I take?

Many think of the GMAT as a business-focused exam and the GRE as more general, but that is actually an outdated notion - all top 25 business schools now accept the GRE. When choosing between the GRE vs. GMAT, you should now consider the other features of the test and testing pool to give yourself the best chance of success. Here are three reasons why the GRE is a better option:

1. The GRE only requires math, not logical reasoning

One of the hardest parts of the GMAT quantitative sections is logical reasoning, in which you have to answer questions that combine logic questions with math. The GRE has no such questions, and this makes the test itself easier and also gives you one less thing to have to study as you prepare for the exam.

2. The GRE can be used for any program

Not sure whether you want to be an MBA or a specialized master's degree in your field of work? With the GRE, you only need to prepare for one exam and your results will be applicable to any program.

3. The GRE has a less punishing adaptive format

Both the GRE and GMAT are "adaptive tests", which means they get more or less difficult depending on how you do on previous questions. The GMAT adapts every question, which means it can ramp up in difficulty very quickly if you get a lot of questions right. The subsequent questions can be very difficult and it takes a lot of time and energy to prepare for them on the chance you get to see them. On the other hand, the GRE only adapts after each section, so the question difficulty varies a lot less. This makes it easier for you to prepare for and you'll more consistently prepare for the questions you'll actually see on the exam.

4. It is easier to get into a top business school with the GRE

Below, we list some of the top business schools in the world and their GMAT and GRE percentile scores. As you can see, most of these programs have a considerable gap in percentiles, meaning that you only need to be in the top 15% of applicant GRE scores to have a median chance of getting into UPenn Wharton, vs. a top 4% score for the GMAT.

How long is the GRE?

The GRE takes about four hours to complete including breaks. There are seven sections: two essays and five quantitative and verbal sections, one of which will be an unscored "research" section. You always take the two essay sections first, then there will either be a verbal or quantitative section third and they alternate between verbal and quantitative after that. This means you'll be taking three of one type (i.e. verbal or quantitative), and two of the other. The unscored research section is always the type you're taking three sections of. There is a 10-minute break following the third section.
