Answer
Tousif:

I checked the ETS website and it does not look like they even administer the Geology GRE exam any more.  They are in the process of dropping the Computer Science GRE as well.  Just another example of compromising admissions standards at universities in order to make more money.

Here are some study guides I found in case you are still required to take the exam.

I am not familiar the the acredidation organizations you cite.  Most universities will evaluate the classes or curriculum on a one to one basis to determine if you have the necessary prerequisites to their program.
