Hi All,
I am particularly asking this to moderators and test takers in India, can we get the GMAT-style test booklet and marker which GMATNinja mentions in this post locally here (at a cheaper cost); to buy this set at 17 USD (1,200 INR) doesn't look worth

The reason I want to buy this is I have seen many test-takers (also me) suffer while using this on the test day (MAYBE we are not habituated to use these weird markers and super big booklets)
You can make one on your own (the noteboard, not the marker ). But what problems did you face on test day? Did your markers run dry?

Oh yess, they dried up just after a few mintues when the lid was opened. A similar problem was faced by gmatace2018 and he did complain (at the centre officials and also emailed GMAC). I am ensure what steps are being taken?!

Yea the markers were quite bad.. It was as if we were expected to not keep the lid open for longer.. however, the markers used to stop working even after the lid was kept open for a minute or two.. and they were those thick markers.. using which the notes were also illegible.. even after requesting additional mrkers, the situation was the same.. Im surprised at the kind of stationary being provided after pying \$250..

I should have done this a long time ago, but we’ve finally fully updated this to reflect the formatting in the online mba.com software, as well as the shorter GMAT exam. Enjoy!

Thanks for the protips GMATNinja, I had actually doing this already by browsing the OG directory and opening dozens of tabs... btw, you can use http://www.timer-tab.com/ to keep track of time if you don't have a 2nd screen. I prefer this over looking at my phone.
