Urgent: GMAT Mock Tests screen resolution? [#permalink] New post 11 Jun 2011, 17:05
I have 24" and 17" monitors attached to my PC. When I gave my mock GMAT CAT test from MGMAT and Princeton Review, I used my 24" monitor and did not change my screen resolution, which is 1920x1080. I am sure this is NOT what I will get on the test day. I want to simulate the test day experience tomorrow morning to give my next MGMAT CAT test.

Could anybody please tell me what kind of setup would I get on the test day? What size monitor, and what resolution? Maybe it doesn't matter to most, but it does matter to me as I am used to 24" monitor at home and 2x27" monitors at work, and if they give me a dinky little monitor on the test day it might affect my performance drastically.

How are others simulating the test setup? Given my 24" and 17" monitors at home, what should I use to train my mind? Please help!

Thanks.

I googled a lot. I found different suggestions for screen sizes and resolutions that one should practice with. I will call my test center and ask tomorrow for real, but today I will use my dinky 17" monitor with a native resolution of 1024x768. This is damn big font size for me, but guess what I think I will get this on the test day as well, so I gotta get used to this shitty font. I am basing my judgement on the recommendations from http://www.urch.com/forums/just-finishe ... ughts.html

Hope this helps somebody else looking for similar information. I will update once I talk to my test center. Thanks guys, and good luck everybody.

Thanks for the query as well as the answer! It will really help me simulate myself with the SCREEN on actual test-day.
