Location: Mumbai, India

As others have mentioned, parking is a big problem in this area. You would be better of taking a cab/rickshaw or having someone else drive you to the center.

Invigilator: They were friendly and polite. Absolutely no problems here.

Test Area: is quiet but I felt that the AC was a little too cold for me. Usually I have the AC dialed in at 23F at home The test center was more like 18F. So make sure you come dressed in layers.

Test Equipment: The computers are all Dell and relatively new/in good shape. The test pads are however, not like the Manhattan Test Pads. They are a little smaller, white in color and a little worn out. Also make sure that you check your pens before entering the test area. You will also be given pink foam ear plugs and tissue paper if you choose to accept these items.

Excellent place, near by metro station is green park.There were a lot of landmarks given so it was easy to locate.

If you are driving then finding parking space can be a daunting task so t better to take metro or auto.

Staff was very professional, made everything clear to me, they also gave me 2 markers and ear plugs without even asking.During the breaks they were quick and they valued my time.

Lockers were large enough and restroom(small) was clean.

Noise level was zero,still i got ear plugs, proper light and AC temperature was comfortable.

The computer was large it was easy to focus, mouse and keyboard were also good.

The center was not in the best condition. When I got to the center on a Monday for the GMAT Exam, I found out that they had been painting the whole weekend. Most computers were not ready, and were still covered with a plastic. The smell of fresh paint was so fresh that after the exam I had a very bad headache. The people, however, was very friendly through the whole exam. Headphones were adequate and prevented most outside noises be heard. The location of the test center is very convenient and central, with many buses and trains dropping you off at a very short walking distance.

The test center was to my surprise, very clean and professional. I say that it was to my surprise because I've heard some horror stories from my friends about his or her experiences with taking GMAT in Manhattan. However, i arrived promptly 15 minutes before my exam, and the front desk was helpful. I think the front desk has been coached or has some sense of awareness that they were very polite and courteous to not only myself, but to other test takers who arrived at the same time. The test center itself was calm, peaceful and easy to navigate. I would recommend this place to anyone commuting or living in the city to take the test.

Location: Toronto, Canada

The center itself is very professional, front desk was very nice and it does have lockers for you to store your belongings. It's also very easy to access as it's right beside the subway.

My biggest issue with this test center was that the earmuffs they provide are very rigid and are extremely uncomfortable. On top of that, the keyboards they use are very old and they are mechanical - so your neighbours will create a lot of additional noise. My keyboard was also not the greatest and kept dropping characters, which really impacted my writing speed for the essay.

Allahabad Test Centre

Location: Allahabad, India

The Allahabad Test Centre was in the heart of the city in Civil Lines though it is now closed.I gave the GMAT there years back but the atmosphere was quite good.The staff was excellent and very helpful.Though my exam started late due to festival season the staff fully helped me.
This centre should start once again for the sole use of the students in UP.The other centre is in Lucknow which is quite far for the students based in East UP.
Therefor,for the sake of giving an opportunuty to these students the Allahabad centre should be started once again.

Location: Beirut, Lebanon

I have done two gmat exams, one in the Hamra Test Center and another in the New Horizon Test Center in downtown Beirut Lebanon. In comparison, I would definitely recommend the New Horizon Test Center given how:
1) Conveniently located it is: right in the middle of Down Town, in the Puma building
2) Despite being a bit 'hidden in the building' they were able to guide me very quickly to the location
3) The employees at the center are super helpful and efficient! They were flexible, proactively catering to my requests and even started my exam a bit earlier than my schedule as the seat was available
4) Center is quiet and calm, very good for you to concentrate
5) Center is fully equipped with latest technology, coffee and water
I would definitely recommend this center for anyone looking to take their GMAT exam in Lebanon. It helps with the its overall positive ambiance and efficient processes.

Location: Chennai, India

Hii All,
Finally took the test.Didnt fare that well,but would still like to share the whole experience and the do's and dont's that i feel should have been followed by me.
The test center of chennai was far from where i live and it took me more than 2 hours to reach.My test was scheduled at 1 but i reached by 12 and got to start my test by 12:30 PM.
The whole process of verification of identity and biometrics was smooth and the test center was good if not great.
Since my timing was clashing with my lunch timing ,I had to carried a bottle of hydrating drinks and some chocolate bars for the breaks.
The AWA and IR went well and then i moved to the quants section after a short break.The section started well and the initial questions were pretty straignt forward.The section went well with some tricky questions appearing around Q10.Since i hadnt taken too many mock due to my extensive travelling job,I was rushing throug the section in the first half hour.This allowed me to relax a bit in the middle section but this is where i think i screwed up.I overestimated my capabilities and was in a fix towards the end of the section.I had to rush through last 4 -5 questions which i feel i got wrong and resulted in a below par score of Q45.

My take aways :How much well prepared you are or good at any topic ,taking timed test is the key for the exam day.Appearing mocks is the most important thing.Little upset but i think i can manage this animal next time.Tightening my belt and getting ready for one more shot in a short while.only worry is i am little late for 2017 cycle.

All the best to everyone else planning to write GMAT in near future.Please take aa many times test as possible.

thanks

Good experience at test center

I had a good experience at Rio de Janeiro test center. It is located downtown, what makes it very easy to access. My appointment was on a Saturday, so I woke up early, took the subway, and got there walking just a few minutes.
After I arrived there, I met the receptionist (who was very kind with me), left my backpack in the locker, and got my seat at the exam room. The exam room itself was the only thing that was not excellent. They have many computers for different certification exams, so people get in and out of the room all the time (however, people tried not to make noise). It didn't disturb me, but if you need absolute silence during the exam, it can be an issue. The toilets were good and I recommend people that live in Rio to take the exam there.

Location: Sao Paulo, Brazil

I feel like Pearson has a standard type of facilities. They are located in a good neighborhood in Sao Paulo and you can use the parking lot in the same building, which makes things easier. They have a small toilet (very clean) and lockers to put your stuff. They provided me ear plugs and all the material that I needed to do the test. I felt very confortable on the chair and when using the keyboard. Overall, it was a very good experience. I went there earlier and they asked me if I would like to start or wait until my scheduled time, I preferred to start.
