For the record : I had no distracting females at my centre ... I wish ! There were only dudes, no scope (or interest) for conversation in the test breaks :d

Center Name: Pearson Professional Centres
City & Country: Toronto, Canada
Parking facility: N/A (used public transit)
Invigilator Reviews: Very personable and responsive
Environment: Uncomfortably warm and stuffy inside the testing room. Earplugs and headphones are provided. The computers are Dell, but there isn't much space between the case and the desk forcing you to move the keyboard around (annoying on AWA, but otherwise no need for KB)
Rating: 2/5
Additional Info: You are provided with 2 pens and 1 booklet. They will not let you have more than one booklet so remember to swap out at each interval.
Debrief Link: Coming soon
Do's & Don't s: None come to mind

Center Name : Pearson Vue, 500, 5th Avenue, NY
City & Country : NY, USA
Parking facility : Used public transport. There's a station right outside the building.
Invigilator Reviews : Overall nice.
Environment : Good
Rating 5/5 :4.5
Additional Info : Earplugs were not provided and neither did I ask. Computer and room was comfortable. 1 booklet and 2 pens given. For the Verbal section, I asked for a second booklet and was given one.The restroom is outside the testing facility but inside the building; a walk down the hall way
Debrief Link : N.A.
Do's & Don't s : I think the Penn plaza center has more choice in test time and date . My center has most tests starting at 8 AM. Pretty crowded and noisy on Sat at the 8 am slot.

Seattle area:

Renton: 4/5

Friendly faculty, great parking, not too hard to find. One time coming back into the test it took them a bit because there were a few of us trying to get in, but I got there before my 8 minutes were up.

Seattle/Northgate: 2/5

This testing center is twice as big as most. They have two big rooms, instead of one like I have seen before. Luckily I was taking a Kaplan practice test, because after one break they took a long time to get me back in, and I was a couple minutes late getting back to the test. When I took the real thing the first time I went here and did not do so well. The snarky guy that handed me my test score said, well you can get into WSU with that score (not a competitive school) and I felt like punching him. Given the size of the testing facility there is a greater possibility that you could have trouble getting back in within the 8 minutes BUT if you come during a time that is not that busy you will be able to get in and out super easy since it is so big.

Hi

Can someone please share the feedback on the Positive Solution Test Centre at Pitampura, Delhi (India) in terms of :

1) Noise disturbance
2) Ease of the staff in dealing with students.
3) Any other factor which could have distracted people and made them loose focus.

The reason I am asking is that in one of the forum, I read about noise due to construction and music nearby. Though the review is atleast a year old i just want to be sure about the centre. I'll appreciate if someone could share the feedback.

Center Name : Pearson Professional Centers - Columbus (South)
City & Country : Gahanna, OH
Parking facility : Ample parking - not an issue.
Invigilator Reviews : Very good. Explained everything clearly, very responsive when I raised my hand.
Environment : Comfortable seats, dividers between computer screens, noise reducing headphones
Rating 5/5 : 5/5 - no complaints at all.
Additional Info : It can be a little confusing to find since there's no sign on the outside of the building indiciating that Pearson is there. I'd recommend driving there before your test day to make sure you know where it is.
Debrief Link :
Do's & Don't s : Just leave your cell phone in the car.

This review and the thread as well is really helpful for all future test takers. I have booked my GMAT exam at Nettur centre, Bangalore on 28th Nov.

My previous appointment at Xenitis Technolab Pvt Ltd,Kolkata was cancelled due to "system escalation" just 12 days before my original appointment. Originally, I was supposed to appear for GMAT on Sept 26th but now I have wait for 2 months.
Rescheduling was done free of cost, of course. So, before rescheduling I decided to check for the reviews regarding the centres.
