What is the GMAT?
The GMAT is a computer assessment of analytical, writing, quantitative, verbal, and reading skills in standard written English in preparation for being admitted into a graduate management program, such as an MBA. The test is called a CAT, or Computer Adaptive Test, both because it is administered on a computer and because the test actually changes based upon how one answers the questions. The GMAT is required by most business schools, though the scores vary in importance at different schools.
In addition to your GMAT score, schools consider the extent and caliber of your work experience (especially for more competitive programs), undergraduate GPA, letters of recommendation, interview and essays.
Where can I find GMAT resources?
We recommend beatthegmat.com and gmatclub.com. Both are communities of fellow test-takers and admission coaches for GMAT and business school application advice.
GMAT practice tests are available at www.mba.com. Do you recommend that I take them?
We recommend that you NOT use anything from www.mba.com until you think you are absolutely ready to take the test. The tests at MBA.com provide a strikingly accurate estimation of what you will actually score on test day BUT they can only be taken twice. On the third attempt, you will start to see questions repeated, rendering the test useless in terms of predicting your score. We recommend that you take the official MBA.com examination one or two sessions before you plan to sit and take the actual GMAT in order to determine if you are really ready to pay $250 and take a day off of work to write this test.
Where can I find information about registration, test centers and dates?
You must register to take the GMAT in advance by phone or email; walk-in GMAT registration at test centers is not accepted.
The GMAT is given around the country and the world at Pearson VUE testing centers. Enter your zip code here to find a test center near your location.
Where do you provide services?
We offer office and university/public library visits in central Metro West and most of the greater Boston area.
