What font does GMAT, GMATPrep use? I'll like to start using the same for some time :), though i'm not a big fan of that font.

I prefer Arial / Tahoma

I think it's the same as in GMATPrep, though I don't remember what that is.

You're right, nothing to worry about. But, I'm curious to know the font..

Any clues?

dude, just concentrate on studies and not font.

I personally didn't see a need to judge the OP's question. I reckoned they might already be studying twice as hard as I did. Maybe OP is knowledgeable about the difference between how the human eye tracks serif vs. sans-serif fonts while reading, and maybe they're taking their RC skills to a new place that I can't even comprehend. Or maybe they're just curious and if I'm going to both to reply, I obviously don't have much better to do with my time either! :)

Anyway, the font looks closer to an aliased version of Verdana imo; it doesn't look like Arial. Definitely a jaggy, harder-to-read sans.

Like I mentioned, curious. period. There is no harm getting used to things, I find it more comfortable.
