We recently asked Kevin Rocci, a GMAT Expert from Magoosh, the difference between the GRE and GMAT and also asked him which was easier to take. 
He says that the GRE and the GMAT test two completely different kinds of skills in students. He strongly feels that the easier option would depend on the student’s areas of strength. For a student who may be skilled in vocabulary and not so much in math, GRE would be the easier option.  For those who have solid math skills and are good in grammar, the GMAT would be the better option for a higher score. 
Kevin Rocci states that since these two tests are so different in nature, it is terribly difficult for business schools to compare the two, to see where a student stands in terms of skill sets. Business schools understand and know the GMAT much more than they do the GRE.
