Sneak peak into the the next generation GMAT questions [#permalink] New post 10 Nov 2010, 02:56
Hi Guys,

Came across this article on business week and thought i would share...

Anybody who will be taking the GMAT in the near future might want to sit up and pay attention to this. As many of you already know, the Graduate Management Admission Council has announced plans to overhaul the GMAT, adding a new “integrated reasoning” section to the business school admissions test in 2012.

Test-takers who will be taking the GMAT from Nov. 19 to 24 will get a sneak peak at some of the new question formats that future generations of b-school wannabes will have to contend with. The new section, which will come at the end of the test, will not count toward your final score. It’s for research purposes only. GMAC will be using the results of this trial run to develop actual questions for the new test.

You don’t have to take the test to get an early look at the new question types. GMAT has posted ten sample questions online.

I have never taken the GMAT, so I’m in no position to say how the new question types compare with those already on the test, but let’s just say they’re no walk in the park. One question lays out an issue (the danger of driving while talking on a cell phone), proposes two solutions, and asks test takers to evaluate a series of statements to determine if they support the likely success of either solution. And that was the easy one. Others involve regression equations, scatter plots, pie charts, even a series of emails. All of them require the test taker to combine different types of data (hence the “integrated” in integrated reasoning).

If you’re in no mood for a test, you can always watch the video, which walks you through the new question formats in a less headache-inducing way.

GMAC wants feedback on the new question formats. So go, take the new questions for a test drive, then let us know what you think.

We had our instructors take a look through the problems and write up what they thought about them.

Check out what they had to say here: http://www.manhattangmat.com/blog/index ... -analysis/

They talk about the integration of math and verbal on the new section and how the new section takes advantage of the computer format to formulate the prompts, including the allowed use of a calculator!

What are your thoughts on the new section?
