I3igDmsu, thanks for sharing the link. I was wondering how 'thin tip' the pens actually were. I was picturing thicker, so this is a relief.

Can I ask for two booklets and two markers at the beginning? That way, I don't have to keep losing my focus every time I run out of space... I realized while practicing on the Manhattan GMAT booklet that I write fairly largely (that was one unexpected discovery / benefit of using the MGMAT booklet). I'm trying to write smaller, but I also write all over the place so it makes more sense to go to the next page to write instead of trying to squeeze in some more writing and get lost in all the markings. If I can get a second booklet right off the bat without having to ask for a new one, that'll solve that.

Hi iPen,

Unfortunately, each Test Taker is allowed just one pad and one pen at a time. You can 'trade in' your pad for a fresh one at any point during the exam. However, if you decide to do so in the middle of a section, then you'll have to wait for a Center Moderator to get to you (as your clock is running), which could cost you some time. As such, you should plan to trade in your pad during each of the two breaks (when you won't need an immediate response from the Moderator).

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

I think that's at the discretion of the test centre. Because I was given two pads and two markers "just in case." I ended up using them all.

Hi Fielding,

You experienced something that was/is NOT the norm - so you 'lucked' into a small potential advantage when you took the GMAT. To that end though, how did you score?
