Are you planning to take the GRE in the near future? If the answer is, ‘yes’, then it is absolutely necessary that you start taking practice exams from today itself. Taking practice exams will not only acquaint you with the test format, but you will also be able to carry out self assessment and get an estimate of how well you are likely to perform in the actual test. Your aim should be to keep taking practice exams at regular intervals throughout the course of your preparation so that you are aware of the progress you are making in preparing for the test. Before you can put this plan into practice, the first step to be taken is to understand the types of questions that will be asked in the test and then look for mock exams that concentrate on those types of questions.
Here is some useful links to practice the exams on a single page. This is a list of links such that clicking on any link will take you to practice tests for a specific type of questions.

This is a variation of the Problem Solving questions wherein the correct answer options could be more than one. The number of correct answers to be chosen may or may not be specified. Solve the practice tests given at the following links to improve your skills in answering this type of questions.
Numeric Entry questions are tough in the sense that you will not be provided with any multiple choices and you have to enter the answer to the question at the space provided for the same. This implies that you will have to rely on your calculations alone to arrive at the correct answer. There will be no suggested answers which will be able to warn you that your answer is incorrect if it is not listed in the answer options. It is evident that you will need the assistance of mock exams to fine-tune the skills that are required to answer such questions correctly. You will find some Numeric Entry questions at the links listed below.
It will be difficult for you to answer the Comparison questions correctly unless you have taken sufficient practice exams based on Comparison questions. These questions are a test of your abilities to compare two given quantities and identify the relation between them. You will be provided with two quantities and your task will be to choose one out of the four given options that states the correct relation between the given quantities. These four options will be the same of all questions of this type.

Reading Comprehension questions are based on a given passage. These questions are of three types and you need to solve several practice exams pertaining to each type of question before you can gain confidence in answering such questions on the day of the actual test. Given below are links to practice tests for those types of Reading Comprehension questions in which each passage is followed by questions with five answer choices and you have to choose one correct answer.
This is another type of Reading Comprehension questions in which you will be provided with three answer choices and one, two or all three of the answer choices can be correct. You need to solve ample number of mock exams before you can understand how to identify all the correct answers and select them accordingly. This is all the more important because you will not earn any scores for partially correct answers. Here are some links with mock exams for this type of questions.
The Select in Passage questions do not have any accompanying multiple answer choices. The questions are such that you need to answer them by selecting a sentence from the given passage. You must solve the exams pertaining to these questions else you will get confused on the test day. Here are links with sample exams for this type of questions.
Text Completion questions are also based on passages, but these passages are short passages and they may even be of one sentence in length. These passages have one to three missing words. Your task is to select appropriate words to fill in the blanks by choosing them from among the provided answer options. You will be given five answer options if there is only a single missing word, else you will have to choose from three answer choices. If you want to solve the exams so as to gain confidence in attempting this type of questions, you can go through the following links.
Despite having a missing word that needs to be filled in, Sentence Equivalence questions are different from the Text Completion questions. There will be only one sentence and one missing word. You will have to choose two correct answers from the six given answer options. The two chosen words should be such that the sentence will mean the same when either of them is used as the missing word.
