What font does GMAT, GMATPrep use? I'll like to start using the same for some time :), though i'm not a big fan of that font.

I prefer Arial / Tahoma

dude, just concentrate on studies and not font.

I personally didn't see a need to judge the OP's question. I reckoned they might already be studying twice as hard as I did. Maybe OP is knowledgeable about the difference between how the human eye tracks serif vs. sans-serif fonts while reading, and maybe they're taking their RC skills to a new place that I can't even comprehend. Or maybe they're just curious and if I'm going to both to reply, I obviously don't have much better to do with my time either! :)

Anyway, the font looks closer to an aliased version of Verdana imo; it doesn't look like Arial. Definitely a jaggy, harder-to-read sans.

Thanks timetrader! +1


Can anyone tell me what is the font used in text in GMATClub forums. Seems like it is different while typing the text than when text is posted.

I like that font. :)

Thanks. This is a good help.

When I first sit for the GMAT, I felt the font is very big to me...Perhaps the screen is too close to me and the position cannot be easily adjusted. During the daily practice, besides the GMAT Prep, I have switched to the font required to get myself accustomed to it.

Sometimes all details matter.
