Just found this post - looks like it has gone unanswered. Oops
Here you go:
1 - Is there some limit on the number of notebooks you can use? Or can I use as many as I want?
I believe you only get 1 to start with. You cannot erase your answers and if you run out of space, you will need to raise your hand to get another one, but you can't get 2 to start with.
2 - If it is not limited, do you think that at some point am I going to need to raise my hand to get more? Or the amount of paper is a lot more than most of the people would need to do the test?
That's right - raise your hand. The notebook is usually plenty for most people, but if you are in a habit of taking notes on RC and CR, or drawing grids for your answers, then you may run out. Usually this is not an issue.
3 - Do they give all notebooks to use on the entire test at once in the beginning? Or they give new ones at the start of each section?
I believe it is one per test but I don't remember
4 - Do I need to 'close' the pen every time I am not using it? (otherwise it is going to dry and won't write anymore - I remember something like this when I took the test last year)
"Practice" with the MGMAT Test Simulation Booklet - it has the same brand of the marker
5 - If the pen dries, how many time does it take to be able to use again?
6 - How many pens do they give us?
It may vary - I believe 1 but you should be able to get another one
7 - I bought Manhattan notebook and pen. I want to know from somebody who also has it: to what extent are they equal to the same I am going to see on the real test.
It is very close.
Good Luck. Please report if you have already taken the test!
