Typically, scores tend to dip a little after a test format change. Since scores are valid for 5 years, I would recommend preparing for and taking the test prior to the change. Here's a good article about the GMAT format change: http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2010 ... est-change

Also, check out the Veritas blog for our take on the change: http://blog.veritasprep.com/2010/06/new ... -take.html

Hi Team GMAC,

I need help regarding few questions I have on the new GMAT format based scoring.

My situation is that I don't think I would be able to appear for gmat before the format changes.

Why & How does the score (200-800) dip after the new format change??

1. How would the scores for verbal & quant (200-800) be affected by this change of new format?
2. How much does the independent score of new Integrated Reasoning matters in the over GMAT score?
3. When can we expect to get online books/materials/coaching available for preparation for the new IR section in the market?

Thanks so much,
Arin
