The test center is located walking distance from grand central subway terminals. Hence, convenient to commute there. It is just next to Brynt park. So you can relax and study there before going to the exam center. There are many food joints and cafes just next to the test center building such as chipotle, pret a menger , subway, starbucks . So you dont have to think about food or caffeine if you need before the test. Also after the test if you want you can walk to to time square and party if you would like to celebrate.

The rooms are neat & clean. The staff is friendly. Computer works fine. They provide ear plugs for avoiding any kind of noise distraction. They also have lockers, refreshments & everything you would need for the exam.

Small, Quiet, and well-run test center

For test center at 500 Fifth Avenue. Just 1 block from the 7 train stop at Bryant Park. I arrived early for my 8AM test (at 7:15am), and was initially turned away from the building because "Pearson isn't open yet." Returned at 7:30, was testing by 7:50am with about 12 other people (not all GMAT testers).

The woman directing/overseeing the test room was a little sassy, but otherwise everyone was very nice. Automatic refill of test taking yellow pad when I changed from Quant to Verbal section. Noise-blocking headphones at desk. Quiet, calm space with natural light. Very accessible. Polite staff and convenient bathroom location. Would retake the test here.
