Familiarity with Test software

Increasing Speed & Accuracy

Increasing your speed of answering questions without compromising on accuracy by practicing enough mock test for GRE is crucial.
Next most important skill that you need to develop through GRE mock tests is increasing your speed of answering questions without compromising on your accuracy. For this, GRE mock tests that provide data on the average time taken by other students will be useful. Also, the average accuracy achieved by test-takers on that question. This will help you benchmark yourself with respect to speed of answering questions.
It is better to initially practice independently on Verbal and Quant GRE style tests. So first ensure that you complete all the topics in Quant and Verbal. Then start on GRE mock tests that are separate for verbal and quant. It will give you a good idea of the structure of each section, i.e the approximate number of questions that appear on various topics and the type of questions (TC single blank, TC double blank, TC triple blanks, RC with long passages, approximate questions in Arith, Algebra, Geometry, Data Interpretation etc).

Proper Time Management

It is better to initially practice independently on Verbal and Quant GRE style tests. So first ensure that you complete all the topics in Quant and Verbal. Then start on GRE mock tests that are separate for verbal and quant. It will give you a good idea of the structure of each section, i.e the approximate number of questions that appear on various topics and the type of questions (TC single blank, TC double blank, TC triple blanks, RC with long passages, approximate questions in Arith, Algebra, Geometry, Data Interpretation etc).
Further, it will help you develop your own time management strategy for Verbal and Quant. Time Management strategy will include aspects such as: a) Which questions would you give priority tob) Which questions would you answer firstc) How much time would you allot for a particular question type
Gradually you need to develop a sense of 'timing', by that we mean something inside you should prompt you if you get stuck on a question and the time is ticking. (After a point, it is better to make an intelligent guess, mark a choice, mark the question for review, and move to the next question).
When you have practiced a good number of GRE mock tests separately for Verbal and Quant, start on Full-length GRE tests. These are tests that include AWA, Quant and Verbal in a style similar to actual GRE. This will help you build the mental and physical stamina that is needed to be focused throughout the four-hour test that alternates between verbal and quant.
A minimum for 4 such full-length tests is ideal.It is better to complete the GRE syllabus to a good extent before you start taking GRE mock tests. Some are of the opinion that just taking a large number of tests will prepare one adequately for GRE. This is not true.

What type of GRE mock tests to practice?

The test is adaptive, which means that the difficulty level of the second section depends on your performance in the first section. So, if your performance is just satisfactory in the first section, chances are that you will not get to face difficult questions, as also questions from difficult topics.
So it is better to practice on non-adaptive tests first so that you get exposed to question types of various difficulty levels and types, regardless of your performance in the first section. You may then analyse your performance in the tests, determine your weak areas, build on them and only then take further mock GRE style tests.
Hope this article gives you a good exposure to prepare effectively for GRE through various types of mock GRE styles tests.

Conclusion

Take online GRE mock tests for various question types to develop your accuracy and speed.
Take mock tests separate for Verbal and Quant to develop time management strategy for each section particularly.
At the end take full length GRE style tests to develop the mental and physical stamina for the 4 hour GRE.
