Hi, has anyone sat for the Executive Assessment?
Topics tested are the same as the regular GMAT? Or there's a reduced topics list?
On top of the downloadable sample questions published in Gmac's EA website, are out there any sample exams/questions? (in the case these are shorter/easier than Gmat's regular ones...)
Any other piece of advice for EA?

Thanks for opening this thread. Hope other applicants will join the discussion soon.

Just added application deadlines in first post. I request you all to add Columbia EMBA program on your MBA Timeline so that the stats displayed on first post will reflect true picture of application pool.

Anyone else applying for EMBA-Saturday for the 2/22 deadline?

Bull78 - congrats on getting in! May I ask how you scored on your gmat? I took it yesterday and ended up with a 660, which is a little lower than what I had expected based on practice tests (I lost 3 minutes at beginning of Quant due to palm-scanner issues).

Congrats for your 660 Stephen. I know how hard is to cope with everyday life along with trying to beat the GMAT. What I can tell you is that for EMBA the focus is not on the score, I think yours its Ok as far as your profile and work experience compensates it. In my case I have over 12 years of experience and a financial industry background looking forward to change roles or to start my own company. You can PM me and I can help you with some tips on the application.

Regards

I took the executive assessment. It's very similar to the practice test on the GMAC website. I never took the GMAT, so I can't compare.

Hi all. Just took the Executive Assessment, but having trouble interpreting my score. Does anyone know what a "good score" is -- or at least one that's "good enough" for admission? Any way to translate this thing into a regular GMAT score?

Email GMAC directly. Not enough info is published yet. The test is quite new.
