Text Size on Actual GMAT [#permalink] New post 01 Aug 2010, 17:53
I wanted to know if it is possible to change the size of the standard text on the actual GMAT. I find that when I read off a computer screen I have some difficulty when the font is standard size. To fix this, I change the size of the font on my computer. Is this possible on the actual test?

Sorry if this was the wrong place to post this question, but I was not sure which forum would be best.

Unless you apply for a handicap, you can not change anything on the test. The real thing is pretty much identical to GMATPrep.

Please consult mba.com or contact the GMAC for the details.
