Took it yesterday. Unofficial score: 158 V 166 Q.
The question difficulty was pretty much the same as Powerprep and Official ETS Guides. I'd argue Verbal is slightly more difficult just because most of the material I used to memorize words had included many words that were in the prep material. But for the most part, my grades on the prep were the same as in the actual test (prep I had slightly higher Verbal but slightly lower Quant). Hope that helps.

Hi,
I just took GRE exam a month ago. Before starting my preparation I gave a mock test in which I scored 303. By that time I had one month to prepare for exam. I referred many online resources and wrote GRE Sample test from magoosh and Galvanize Test Prep that actually tells where I am and helped me a lot.

Coming to your next question. As I wrote it only once I have no idea about it. But I have some friends who didn't find a change in toughness level of the exam. Better be prepared for worst and be the best. Good Luck

The first time I got 158V and 159Q. I retook the test after 3-4 weeks though I did not have time to study much and got 154V 159Q.

I think the quantitative section was much much harder than the PowerPrep practice tests of ETS.

This is damn true. Quantitative part was too hard in comparison with previous exams.

Hi ScottTargetTestPrep,

I retook the test after 4 weeks and got 165Q and 153V. I left my full-time job and changed the way I was studying for the exam. First, I did Manhattan's 6 online practice tests twice (Math sections only, since the verbal part is known to be inaccurate). I believe that these practice tests helped me the most for getting 165Q; they are somehow equivalent to the real test in terms of accuracy and time management. Then, I did few Math exercises form Manhattan 5lb Practice Problems, though I wish I had studied more. I believe my verbal score dropped from 158V to 153V because the first time I took the test I memorized around 500 words, but later on I started to forget them (since I barley reviewed them).

Overall, I advise you to practice accurate Math practice tests as much as possible (which you have to pay for).
