Wow, that's a poorly written article in the Headlines India (a better one in Times of India, but neither make it clear) - those articles do refer to OG 12 only and not a new test format.

There are changes to the GMAT coming but not until 2013

times of india is worthless. Sorry to be harsh but this paper just lifts off what the western papers report on news originating from the west, spices it up and sensationalizes it.

those of us from India know that TOI is actually an advertising supplemented with the occasional news piece :-D

Although - the fact that you can get a newspaper (however poorly written and edited) for 2 american cents does say smthg about why the newspaper business is a thriving one in India.

Guys,
Do you know whether GMAT Prep bank is being updated?
If so, how often? I took the test like 8 times already. In Quant I have not seen so many new questions, but in Verbal I still encounter new RC passages and SC questions! Just wondering how many new questions being added/replaced each month?

Why bump a GMAT thread about GMATPrep? A two year old thread at that?

Locked.
