Recent PGRE Exams: Practice After 2014

In summary, there are no recent PGRE exams available online for practice after 2014. However, someone who took the exam in 2015 mentioned that the questions were very similar to the more recent available ones. They also suggest using a sample test book for additional practice.

Unfortunately no :( If it helps, I took it in 2015 and the questions were extremely similar to the more recent available ones.

It does help a lot, haha, thank you! In that case, considering how little time I have left (I've only been able to go through the Conquering the Physics GRE's back of the section problems, in addition to reading the chapters, twice), I may only do past years' exams and the sample ones released by ETS before the test. Thanks!

You might want to try that book's sample tests in the back of the book as well. They're a little bit harder than the pGRE but it is still good practice, in my opinion.
