Date of your test:  31 Dec 2010   Appointment time:  morning
The reviewer would recommend this test center to others: Highly Recommend   Location:   Newark, DE USA
Parking facility : available
Invigilator Reviews : Polite, ok efficient
Environment : I found it very good. Not much noise.
Additional Info : toilet is about a minute away so look at it before the exam. I asked for the additional notebook and lady was very slow. I have to attempt 4-6 math questions with virtually no space left to write on. They do not have good time keeping mechanism for breaks. (I am not sure how it happens in another centers)
Do's & Don't s : Look at the center a week before. It is little hidden inside the big building.

Date of your test:  31 Dec 2010   Appointment time:  morning
The reviewer would recommend this test center to others: Highly Recommend   Location:   Paris, France
Parking facility : Absent, but actually not needed - take a Vlib! ;)

Invigilator Reviews : Correct, nothing to mention

Environment : Some noise coming from the street, but earplugs (which are provided) do what is necessary

Additional Info : No earphones, so get ready to use earplugs (or how do you call it..), Small room containing 7-8 workstations, The workstations are Dell, but the screen is placed too high, that was a problem for me.

Debrief Link : 740-q48-v44-not-bad-for-a-human-100954.html

Do's & Don't s : Only one restroom, so the first thing you should do when you go for a break is to go to the toilet if it is empty.

Date of your test:  31 Dec 2010   Appointment time:  morning
The reviewer would recommend this test center to others: Highly Recommend   Location:   Chicago-Wacker, IL USA
Parking facility : N/A (walked)

Invigilator Reviews : Very nice and accommodating. Helpful. Quick.

Environment : Testing center itself was not bad, fairly quiet, no real complaints. A bunch of construction on the lobby level of the building made it a pain to get into the building, but ended up not being a real problem.

Additional Info : Construction on lobby level. Have to walk around to the south entrance and buzz in (at least I did -- it was a Saturday).

Do's & Don't s : Do: kill the exam. Don't: freak out, it's just a test.

       By SeniorFlunky joined: June 16, 2010 | 43 | 89 |
Date of your test:  31 Dec 2010   Appointment time:  morning
The reviewer would recommend this test center to others: Highly Recommend   Location:   London, United Kingdom
Parking facility : None AKA in central London? Bwahahahaha!
Invigilator Reviews : Polite, efficient - did not offer to test pen ;)
Environment : Quiet, desk approx 1.5m square with high dividers. No ear plugs provided but headphones are present (I guess for tests that need them)
Additional Info : Test scratch pad was not like the one shown here. It was in fact laminated white A4 sheets with a heavy black grid sectioned into rectangles about 10mm x 7mm. I forgot to count how many pages were provided but there were at least 10 sides which was more than adequate.

Debrief Link : http://gmatclub.com/forum/740-q49-v42-awa-98204.html

Do's & Don't s : Don't change your routine based on what worked for other people.
