The test center as written in all the reviews above is very conveniently located. But I drove down there on my test day and parking was a big issue in the morning. Apparently all the spots in the area are taken up by taxis in the morning until about 9:30 a.m. There's the metro parking just beside the center, but make sure to inform the fellow there that you'll be leaving at 1 p.m. (in case the test is in the morning of course). Otherwise it's impossible to get your car out before 6 in the evening as the parking area gets solidly packed. It is best to use the metro.

The test center staff was very professional and took me through the paces just as the GMAC shows on its videos. The seating is extremely comfortable and the test room was well insulated. Overall a very delightful test experience.

Thanks to the guys there, whose names I couldnt find out - maybe it was my sheer nervousness :P

Top class facilities July 09 | 2013 1 out of 1 people found the following review helpful

The test center is in Capital Knowledge located at the Bahrain Financial Harbour, one of the landmarks in the heart of the Kingdom. Capital knowledge is an institute which offers various others courses, so the facilities are top class. The center is easy to locate and the premises have its own building facilities.

The instructions on the exam sheet provides very clear directions and it is very rare if someone fails to spot one of the tallest building in Bahrain.

The staff is very friendly and ensures you are well taken care of. They are well versed with the procedures and assist you in any way possible.

Being a top institute in Bahrain, the test center has good facilities. The institute provides both cold and warm water, fruits, snacks and hot drinks such as tea or coffee. Their chairs are really comfortable and the room is well lit.

The facilities are very quiet although they still provide ear plugs. However their keyboards do make noise, so if you have someone writing their essays, it can get noisy.

Very unprofessional.

Many IT professionals, didn't share positive feeback about it.
NIIT is the ideal centre for all examinations.

They have improved! April 29 | 2013

This review is for: * Pearson VUE GMAT Test Center | Location: London, United Kingdom

So just to say that the London testing centre is finally worth the ridiculously high price tag we pay for the GMAT. They finally give you proper large notebooks with 10 pages as opposed to 5 pages they would give out before. The staff seemed a lot more professional and they actually seemes to understand the stress test takes are going through and try to make your life easy.

My first testing experience was in early 2012 was not very good. The proctor was a disaster, following the rules to the letter and just doing everything possible to make the testing experience miserable. She would even walk as slowly as possible with a new pad instead of running to get it to you. The finale was having the aircon blowing over my head, ended up taking the rest of the day sick as I was unable to move my neck

When I retook my exam in March 2013 it was really good. Staff seemed a lot more reasonable and cooler, would rush to you with a clean booklet as opposed to walk as slowly as possible, etc. The 10 pager booklet made a huge difference as I have large handwriting!

GMAT Center Review March 20 | 2013

This review is for: * Pearson VUE GMAT Test Center | Location: Manama, Bahrain

This is the only center available in the country. It is easy to locate as it is located in the main commercial district of the Island. The staff were quite polite and helpful. The rest rooms and other facilities were great. I was the only one present when I took the exam so it was really quiet. There is ample of parking space available since it is the main commercial buildings of the kingdom.

The exam center is located In the 25th floor of the tower. I arrived at the center an hour earlier so I could finish all the paper works. I would highly recommend this test center if someone wants a relaxed atmosphere when they take their test.

Highly recommend this test center December 30 | 2012 1 out of 1 people found the following review helpful

This review is for: * Pearson VUE GMAT Test Center | Location: Singapore, Singapore

The test center is right in the heart of financial district. Well connected by public transport. In fact, Tanjong Pagar MRT station exit C is right next to the test center. The test center is located at the 30th Floor. I do not know about parking space availability. The only flip side is there is not many food stalls if you want to have your BF or lunch there. There is a Han's Cafe and 24 Hrs McDonalds across the road, however.

The test center staffs were very cooperative, and attentive. They attended me with in 10 seconds of raising my hands. I never faced any problem in check -out and check-in during breaks. The rest rooms are just outside the office and very accessible.

Test Centers Review

Read my comments as an extension to what other reviewers have already written as I totally agree with them. Guys were friendly and helped me calm down initially. Washroom for men was a bit far so had to walk fast. They replaced the laminated sheets without asking in each break, I really appreciate that. But I will mention one guy sitting at the reception in particular for being a bit over-friendly. He is indeed a sweet person but when I came back after my last break and was waiting to go in he made me wait for around a minute while he carried on his mostly useless (but funny) chat with another lady.. When I got in I was 15 seconds late and had this warning on the screen. Don't know how much difference this made to my final score.

I would like to caution all Gmatclub members to be sure that they are carrying the right ID card with them. I saw one guy in the morning who was not allowed to sit for the test as he was not carrying his passport. He was not an American citizen. In general if you are testing in any country other than the country of your citizenship then you must carry your Passport.

Thats all for now. Over-all it was a nice experience and I will recommend this center to future test takers.

This review is for: * Pearson VUE GMAT Test Center | Location: Philadelphia, PA USA

My appointment was in the morning at 9:45. I arrived at 8.30am. The check-in process was smooth and only took few minutes. Even though I was very early, they let me start immediately. The receptionist and proctor were all friendly and know everything about the test. They gave a run through of all procedures. Water cooler and restrooms are close. They have large lockers so that you can stow away backpacks or personal belongings.

The test experience was smooth. The environment was noise free. They provide you with both ear plugs and headphones. The proctor gave me additional pens even without me asking for them.

The only con I would say is when the proctor is taking other candidates, you will have to wait for a min or two, before he comes to you. You need plan accordingly. I raised my hand even before I submitted the last question of a section.

Overall, my experience with the center has been great and highly recommend it.

I would prefer to drive 100 miles than to give my test at this center November 11 | 2012

This review is for: * Pearson VUE GMAT Test Center | Location: Jacksonville, FL USA

I had my exam couple of days ago. I am residing in the US but belongs to India. As per the rules of GMAT,you have to have your passport book. Unfortunately, my passport book was with IRS for tax purpose, but I was having a stanped letter from the IRS stating that my passport is with them. Also I had couple of government issued ID proofs. The receptionist at the center told me that I cannot give the exam, and I asked her if she can check with somebody on the same. She called somebody and just told her that she has some letter stating her passport is not with her. I requested her to check with that person once again since she did not mentioned that it is with IRS(govn. office), she responded back to me saying "Don't you understand English?"

I was not allowed to give the exam, even if she had allowed me, I would not have performed well because lady just spoiled my mood. I scheduled my exam again after a week, but this time not at Jacksonville center, but at Gainesville center(100 miles from my home :) ). I loved the center, everyone at the center was warm welcoming, and that really matters on the exam date. I got score above my expectations.
