Scratch pad??? [#permalink] New post 14 Dec 2012, 09:43
How to simulate the test scratch pad at home during practice ?? I thought of using projector's transparent sheets , or graph paper but since I have never seen the factual test scratch pad since this is my first time to take the gmat and it would take me much time to await a bought one from the internet to be shipped , so I need your valued advice about the best home - made scratch pad ???

2.What are your tips for the best use of the pad during the test ?? dividing it into quadrants , writing the numbers of all questions on it , .....etc .I need your valued experience as previous test takers

Thank you all in advance.

Expert's post
If you don't mind spending some money, then Manhattan's test booklet is a worthwhile purchase. In my view, it is exactly the same as the actual test booklet used during the GMAT. Veritas Prep also has a noteboard, but I am not familiar with this particular product. I could be wrong, but it seems that the Veritas logo is on each page. If so, then that could be a distraction.

You mentioned some options (laminated paper is another one), but the use of test-like notepads can be safely limited to practice test sessions. For question practice (from the OG or Jeff Sackmann, for example), regular loose leaf or notebook paper would suffice. In fact, that might be better. With regular paper, you can review any mistakes. With an erasable booklet, however, there is the chance that you would run out of space and erase some of your work. I must emphasize, though, that this comparison only applies to question practice. For CATs, a test booklet is superior.

Also, here are some related links:

Hope this helps!

I was given a 6 page booklet of scratch papers and the invigilator came on his own to deliver another similar booklet after 1 hr.
And you wont need more than 1 booklet.
