It's good that you wanted to start the preparation for higher studies right when you doing your UG as it's the best time you need to start the preparation as well. Only few colleges expect both GRE and TOEFL scores together and rest need either of the one which depends upon which college you are planning to get through. So, the first thing which you need to do is skim through various colleges and prepare a list of good ones and get to know what are the expectation out of those colleges and then plan for those exams. If you feel that you want to select things in random then giving both the exams comes in handy.

Some of the tips which would help you to get prepared well for GRE and TOEFL exam is as follows,

-> KNOW THE SYLLABUS: This is pretty much important tip for any exams which you wanted to give is to know the syllabus of the exam. Recently GRE syllabus had a change and now it has three sections which as follows,

-> Quantitative section.

-> Verbal section.

-> Analytical writing assessment.

As far TOEFL exam it's always the same containing test for Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing since it's just the Test of English language.

I have attached the detailed syllabus of both the exam in this post for you to get more information on the same.

-> REFER PREVIOUS YEAR PAPERS: It's good and healthy to refer the previous year papers of the exam which will give you more clear view of how the questions are followed based on the syllabus which you will prepare. I have attached some of the previous year papers of both GRE and TOEFL exam in this post for your reference. Just go through them but never try to prepare only for those questions as they won't be repeated for sure.

-> PREPARE A TIME-TABLE: Since you are doing your UG degree now it will be bit tough to concentrate yourselves on GRE and TOEFL preparation but that shouldn't be the case always. So, make sure you prepare a proper time-table for the week which gives ample amount of time for your current UG exams preparation plus for GRE/TOEFL preparation. Find the right time to prepare and also never compromise on time having fun with your friends :)

-> REFER GOOD BOOKS: There are many and many books available in the market which will help you to prepare for the GRE/TOEFL exams. Just buy those which have good feedbacks from others who already bought the book, this you can easily find out from sites like Flipkart which have the users feedback inline when you buy the books. Make sure you refer the books properly every time and prepare well.

I have attached some more files in this post which will help you to prepare for the GRE/TOEFL exam. All the best!
