Just got this info on my appointment acticity...so thats how GMAT gearing up???


Are you testing between 19 Nov and 24 Nov 2010?
During these dates, your test appointment will last approximately 4½ hours. At the end of your standard GMAT exam, you will be asked to answer 12-15 additional questions during a special 30-minute research session. These questions will not count toward your GMAT score and will not be shared with schools. You will receive a US$25 reward if you put forth reasonable effort to answer these questions.

Is this something new?
I was under the impression that GMAT always has some "research" questions.

Sorry if this is a silly question.. I just started with GMAT preparation recently, so I am new to most of these things.

These are not test related questions (the experimental questions), these are for the GMAC's analytical research. From time to time, the GMAC poses questions to test takers to monitor metrics.
