Urgent: GMAT Mock Tests screen resolution? [#permalink]

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.
