Food During GMAT [#permalink] New post 21 Jul 2003, 21:10
When do we get to have a snack, I remember the SAT and ACT, during break, you can slip out a snack during break. The rules for GMAT seem really strict, no food in computer area. I hope ETS won't videotape me for dehydrating with no drink. :-D

Hungry?? [#permalink] New post 21 Jul 2003, 21:59
You get two 5-minute break after the essays and after math. You can have whatever you want during the break outside the testing area. You get a little locker to store your goods. I didn't feel like eating anything after my math. I felt more like throwing up. 5 minute goes by fast so be careful!!

No food is allowed in the testing room. You can try to hide but that camera is staring at you the whole time!!!

Hey Boarder or anyone else,

Do they tell you when time is up for break or a general idea?

eat good snacks [#permalink] New post 22 Jul 2003, 08:06
yeah, you can have a snack during your break - you just need to go into the hallway. i would suggest an apple or PowerBar - good brain boosters. eat a banana in the morning, but at least an hour before the test because they're nutritionally dense and take a while to digest. that could make you a bit sluggish at first, but about an hour after you eat it, it's great brain food.

definitely drink some water or Gatorade (NOT Red Bull - it will make you jittery as hell) during the breaks, but not too much because you don't want to get distracted by your bladder!!

i don't remember if they call you back from breaks - i kept a real close eye on the clock myself. you literally have just enough time to take a sip of water, go to the bathroom, and inhale a snack.

They don't alert you when the time is up. So you have to be careful. The timer on the computer that keeps the 5-minute break time. It will start the test automatically when time is up. I was down to only 10 seconds during my 2nd break.

Also you have to sign in and out!! So it takes time for that too.

Hope it helps!

If I remember correctly the test does not start automatically after the 5 min break. You would have to press a button to start it and then verify your identity and then the next section would start.

You can bring a big mac with you and put it in the locker; not sure if it will actually fit in there :lol:. Those things were puny at my center. But to tell the truth, why would you want to have McD's during the GMAT? As though there is not enough crap already.


you make me wonder, Curly :roll:
