I am preparing for GRE test and I have something to tell you about GRE-issue. Both GRE Issue essay and TOEFL opinion essay are similar in structure. We should wirte 5 paragraphs including introduction, body (3 p), and conclusion. GRE essay, however, is more acedamic than TOEFL one. In TOEFL essay, you only need to write in a good manner (correct grammar, sufficent paragraph, cogent...) and take little care on its content.

i took toefl 5 years ago and now I'm looking at GRE issue. i think it's pretty much same in structure BUT i think GRE requires you to write more in depth and the topics are more complicated - i find myself unable to absolutely agree/disagree with the topics.
