If you are planning to take GRE Exam, then you have to pay the Exam Fees. Its not cheap either, but compared to GMAT, GRE Exam fees are much less.

I pulled this information from Official GRE web page. Following fee structure is valid between JULY 1, 2008, to JUNE 30, 2009 [ Updated GRE Cost - After June 30]

GRE Exam Fees
