I’m writing this because not much seems to written yet about the EA. I took the test today and want to share thoughts while they’re fresh and before the wine kicks in. In bullet form because I’m lazy:

- I’m 48 years old and haven’t dealt with the material on the test in nearly 30 years
- I scheduled myself for the GMAT, bought a GMAT study book, studied for a while, then concluded that if the GMAT is what’s needed to “go to the next level,” then my current level will have to be good enough.
- I later learned about the EA and scheduled it. I only used the official online GMAC tools, nothing else.
- I didn’t finish the study materials (I’m also doing a calculus course online to fix an old crummy grade).
- I didn’t take any timed practice tests. I wish I had.
- The test was hard. Time management was my biggest weakness. If I was doing it again (and I may), I would quickly complete questions I know I can answer, then go back. I wasted too much time trying to solve hard questions.
- Time management was not an issue on the verbal section, which turned out to be my highest-scoring section. I finished that one early and didn’t spend much time reviewing.
- In general I thought the GMAC study questions were harder than those found on the test. That’s a good thing.
- Final score: IR 11 / Verbal 18 / Quant 11 / overall 160
- Unclear what those scores mean
- Happy to answer questions

Time management was my biggest challenge too. I got a 150. Not sure what it means either.

A new data point: a representative from one of the EMBA programs that accepts the EA said that scores tend to cluster around the high 140s to low 150s, and they see individual section scores in the high single to low double digits. FWIW.
