"Two years from now, the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), the primary gatekeeper to business school for generations of MBA students, will get its biggest makeover in more than a decade, with the addition of a new section designed to test advanced reasoning skills, the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) announced on June 24 at its annual industry conference in San Diego."

Read the article from BW for full details.

I think this new change is appropriate for what the GMAT tries to accomplish (the assessment of analytical thinking). Most schools don't put much emphasis into writing scores anyway so this seems like a good idea.

The article says the change will take place in two years so there still is a lot of time to take the current GMAT. I think I actually prefer this new section (mostly deals with interpreting data) over writing since I hate writing.
