No gum along with eating or drinking I'm afraid.

Well although no gum is allowed according to GMAT policy, if you can discreetly and quietly do it, you will be fine. They will not kick you out of the test for having it, they will only make you spit it out. If you feel that it gives you an advantage, I would consider using it. But make sure to use it during study and practice tests and practice on being completely silent. They don't allow gum b/c they don't want you to bother other test takers, or have anything that could help you cheat along with you. So as long as you are discreet, it shouldn't be a problem. And worst case scenario, they will just make you spit it out.

I would still take the safe approach and not bring it into the testing area.

I agree. there are cameras abound all over the place and I don't want to risk doing ANYTHING to jeopardize my score. But I also concede that someone who is very discrete with chewing gum could get away with it.

Just avoid it altogether . Why do you want to simply take a chance . Even if the proctor doesn't notice anything , the camera is bound to pick it up .
