Hi all,

While reading GMAT bulletin, I have found that calculator is not permitted to bring into the GMAT test center. I don't know how one can do the Math section without calculator.

Anyone has experience?

Thank a lot,

Hello wunderbar

Yes, you can do the math section without the calculator. I have taken it and didnt miss my calc. at all. Best way is to try practising without using a calculator.

During my very first attempt 2 years ago, I also thought calculator was allowed until 1 day prior to the test... I was really underprepared given that I did my practice with a calculator. The thing is even with a calculator, you will not be able to calculate questions like what is the units digit of 53^691? I would suggest you to buy a copy of the Official Guide for the GMAT, Princeton Review CAT and Kaplan800. Take the test seriously and practice problems from this forum, it will help you with the basics

guys like paul and preat know their stuff , if i were you i would follow their advice. definitelly practice without using calc. dont even bring one to the test center, you'll be risking being asked to leave and forfeit the test. i had a friend who got caught with a calc and some cheat sheets [what a dumb@ss ;]]] and the questor politely asked him to leave. he forfeited his test and the fee and was basically screwed. he ended up retaking the test and scoring 700+ without a calc. hope that helps. good luck and merry xmas.
