Hello!

Anybody for Nettur centre Bangalore?


Nettur Technical Training Foundation (NTTF) GMAT center review ----> added to assist Google search

Center Name : Nettur centre Bangalore
City & Country : Bangalore, India
Parking facility : Yes
Invigilator Reviews : Peaceful people
Environment : Calm (total 4 machines only)
Rating 5/5 : 5
Additional Info : Toilet a minute's walk away, but clean & wasnt crowded
Debrief Link :
Do's & Don't s : keep track of time in breaks (8min only)

they provide drinking water

Some people had told me to avoid this center, but i went as did not want to reschedule. At that time i looked for reviews, but found none. Am happy to be able to reply someone. Trust me, it is a great place. I reached at 8:15 for a 9am appointment, so started my test at 8:30 and chose my seat - avoiding direct A/C cooling and taking a corner seat (no body crossed from behind).

Scored 750
i've written a debrief, but couldn't paste link as i have below 5 posts
you may google with "my gmat experience: 750" (witten on GMAT-Club)

Hope this helps!

Center Name : Singapore Pearson VUE
City & Country : Singapore
Parking facility : Not present. Would be expensive as the location is CBD
Invigilator Reviews : They could be more helpful before the test starts. o waiting area. Had to wait outside center for around 20 minutes with no chairs
Environment : Ok. You can hear keyboard noise of other test takers
Rating 5/5 : 3.5
Additional Info : Toilets are close by, not sure about the smoking area as I do not smoke.
Debrief Link : my-gmat-experience-98021.html
Do's & Don't s : Be on time. Not before not later. Don't bring red bulls, anything to eat, the time for optional breaks would only allow you to go for toilet and may be sip some water. Also note that they DO NOT provide water. You need to take one.

Center Name : Pearson Professional Centers, 100 William St.
City & Country : New York, NY
Parking facility : Private garages nearby, but expensive. Easily accessible by public transportation
Invigilator Reviews : Helpful and professional.
Environment : Relatively quiet.
Rating 5/5 : 5
Additional Info : Make sure to carefully read the ID requirements; while US citizens should only need a driver's license, others may need a passport or more.
Debrief Link : 770-q48-v51-thanks-gmatclub-83370.html
Do's & Don't s : Don't show up "on time". Show up 30 mins early just in case. However, if you're running late - don't panic. They don't start your timer for the test until you actually sit down at the computer.

Center Name : Pearson Professional Centres-London Holborn
City & Country : London UK
Parking facility : None AKA in central London? Bwahahahaha!
Invigilator Reviews : Polite, efficient - did not offer to test pen ;)
Environment : Quiet, desk approx 1.5m square with high dividers. No ear plugs provided but headphones are present (I guess for tests that need them)
Rating 5/5 : 5
Additional Info : Test scratch pad was not like the one shown here. It was in fact laminated white A4 sheets with a heavy black grid sectioned into rectangles about 10mm x 7mm. I forgot to count how many pages were provided but there were at least 10 sides which was more than adequate.

Do's & Don't s : Don't change your routine based on what worked for other people

Hey guys,

I think creating a Google Doc Form would be much easier than filling it out like this. It also automatically creates a spreadsheet with answers that can be viewed by anyone with proper access. I feel that this would be a much more efficient way of doing this. Gurpreet, consider this suggestion. The link is attached below:

Form

The spreadsheet can be found here. Spreadsheet

Maybe you can add a link to the first post. Or something where people can fill this out whenever they write a debrief :)


Great suggestion, but its not good to link externally if we can achieve the purpose here. I have created one table ,and I will update all the reviews in a day or two. I need to format it properly, but this is just an example. For further discussion please PM me, as this thread should not have any discussion.
Hope you understand.

Any reviews from malaysia??

Word Ware Distributors SDN BHD, Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia ???


:-D wow more than 1.5 years later I m posting the review for which I had requested.

Centre Name : Word Ware Distributors SDN BHD
Petaling Jaya, Selangor, MYS
City & Country : Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia. Very near to Kuala Lumpur
Parking facility : I travelled by Cab so I m not sure, but the location is very corporate strategic so should be okie.
Invigilator Reviews : Strict and good. More details below.
Environment : Nice
Rating 5/5 : 5/5
Debrief Link : 670-to-710-a-long-journey-without-destination-still-happy-141642.html
Do's & Don't s : NA

Additional Info : I went to the centre 3 days before during the office time to check how much time does it take. I took only the public transport. But if you check my debrief I was not in healthy condition so I took cab straight from my home. It did cost me much but I had no choice. I did notice the traffic condition during my test visit so I knew the traffic won;t be much higher. My test was at 9 but I reached there around 7:30.

I did confirm what things I need to bring before my real test, even though I knew that for international test takers I need to bring my passport and Gmat confirmation. :) I paid 250 USD so I have the right to ask.

The test centre is bit hard to find as people over there confuse you where to do. So visit the centre before hand. The test centre is at third Floor in Block F. The company name is bit different. I think may be because of subsidiary names on the boards. I m sry I do not remember much details of it.

The rooms are quite and lockers & washroom are very near. Good thing is very few test takers actually take during the working days. There are around 4-5 pc and only two of us were giving the test. I was sick and I requested him to allow me to have some strepcils as an emergency aid. He denied. I said I will put in before I go inside? He said U can not put anything inside the mouth too.
I took God's name and went for the battle. My battle details you can view in my debrief.
