it's so ridiculous. LSAC (the makers of the LSAT), by contrast, release 2/3 of EVERY REAL LSAT EVER ADMINISTERED.

get with the program, ETS.

ETS hosts so many tests than LSAT that they have to recycle test questions. Therefore they can't give you old tests for you to practice like LSAT does.

Is LSAT administered only on certain dates? GRE on the other hand can be taken any time any day. That of course is not an excuse for the GRE to not release questions but my understanding is that GRE needs more questions per test since tests have to be different each month and also have to be adaptive, which means it needs multiple sets of the same question types....

Which means that ETS would technically have a wagon-load of questions that they could easily release and share (even GMAT has more with all of the Official Guides, Exam Packs, Question packs, and Paper Tests)

To add a bit more, I don't think GRE is as competitive as LSAT or GMAT, so I feel a lot of the GRE test takers just take the test after some moderate preparation that does not require that much materials and prep (the Test prep market for GRE is also smaller which is odd since GRE is 3x GMAT and 8x LSAT)

so why do we have this discrepancy?? why does the GRE be 3 times and 8 times respectively and the test prep market is smaller than those mentioned ??

It’s tough to say why they do not release more exams. I assume that you know that ETS now has a total of four practice exams? Perhaps they will consider releasing more in the future.
