I just logged in & checked, the online seems to be working ok, not sure about its performance during a test.


Is the older desktop application an offline software?


Thanks,
GyM

A weird thing happened on my GMAT Prep 1 test today.

At question #20 on quant, the software popped up an error (before i could attempt the question) saying
"system error", not sure what it exactly said, since i had a reflex action & closed it immediately. However the system logged me out.
When i logged back in, it said " resume test" or something like that in the box for GMAT prep 1.

I clicked on it & the system took me straight to question #20, however it was a different question than the original question it showed before the error. The timer started exactly from the point of error.

The test resumed fine from this point on, however after Question # 30, it ended. When i review the test, it shows 31 questions in the performance summary, however when i review individual questions it has only 30 questions.

The system doesn't have any trace of the original Q#20.

I think the system goofed up at Q#20 & when it resumed it lost its sequence, the question it threw at me was actually Q#21, however the sequence number it showed was 20 & then the test ended at 30, because it was actually Q#31.

I hope it makes sense.

Has this happened with anyone else? Is there a possibility that something like this can happen on the real test?


Thanks,
GyM

No the programme is still not working for me



I called GMAC today. They said that GMAC is not giving support to the GMATPrep Software anymore, so the problem is not going to be fixed. The only platform available is the online one.

I also asked about connection problems during online test and they told me that unfortunatelly the software does not have any feature to avoid losing your progress, if your connection drops. It may be a feature in the future, but for now we need a reliable connection to do the tests.

Not good news for those with connection problems.

Hope it helps!

I wonder whether they've taken the servers down (for good). Although I haven't been trying regularly, every time I have tried logging in from the software, it asks me to check my connection.

FYI - there is a way around it using a 2012 version of the software that does not require activation but it seems that when GMAC took down their servers, they have also removed ability to activate EP's and QP's

Hello all, l’m having trouble logging onto the GMATPrep software . The error box that appears upon the login attempt says: "We’re having problems connecting to the GMAC servers to process your registration. Please check your internet connection and try again"

Any help is much appreciated.



I just answered the entire 3 hour exam, everything from verbal to AWA and IR and at the end the server got stuck! I didn't even get to see how I performed on Q/V. So frustrating.
