Any time for getting to know the exam? [#permalink]

Hi guys,

I've been off these boards for... almost a year, but it's good to be back. I've been following some of the discussions, though. Quick question... are test-takers allowed time before the GMAT exam to get familiar with the test system? You know, to know how to use the mouse, get used to the icons, that sort of thing?

Thanks!

Had question about the RC passages: How do the RC passages (both the content and the questions) in the actual test compare with what is in the official guide?

They are very comparable indeed. IMO, they are as easy/difficult in the GMAT as in the OG.

But you don't want to focus ONLY on the RC passages from the official guide. What RC tests in the GMAT is your ability of sustained concentration and focus inspite it being a boring and dreary passage.

Learn the techniques of RC and also read a lot ... there are some very helpful links on this forum.

Welcome back HesInMe.

Test takers are allowed to do whatever you have mentioned above.

But, IMO, it is a very bad idea to leave these things for the test date. There are many books and software that can help you gain expertise in these things before the exam and I suggest you take a look at them and not leave this for the D-day.

Take a look at the OG and PowerPrep software. They will teach you all the necessary skills and be sure to practise too.
