Hey guys I have to share my disastrous experience,
I prepared with the classical tools: MGMAT + OG + Forums. First Gmatprep 590 2 months ago Last MGMAT 650, Last Kaplan
I took the Gmat last thursday at 5pm in a center near Brisbane, Australia (Reboot Technology). The room was really small (about 10 computers) and located in a huge mall. In addition I was the only one passing the test. (Strange)
Middle of IR I could hear an electric guitar playing in the next room !
Beginning of Quant a whole band began to play !!! I could hear everything, and my table was shaking (really atrocious rock by the way)
Impossible to focus. I was furious. The manager came, apologized, and said he will tell them to stop. The group band stopped but began 5 minutes later ! It was like that all the test: start playing, manager went to tell them to stop, stop playing 2 minutes, restarted
I'm not the kind of person who finds excuse when he fails but these conditions were INSANE. Especially for CR and RC as I'm not a native speaker I need full concentration. I wasn't able to read properly a text.
Final score 590, same as my first GmatPrep.... GREAT
The manager said he wanted to call me in order to reschedule my test but as I gave my foreign number, he couldn't reach me. (I checked and he didn't try to call me + why didn't he send me an email ??)
I'm devastated and I don't know what I should do...
PS: DON'T GO TO REBOOT TECHNOLOGY, BRISBANE
