Notebook and pen used on the test [#permalink]

1 - Is there some limit on the number of notebooks you can use? Or can I use as many as I want?
2 - If it is not limited, do you think that at some point am I going to need to raise my hand to get more? Or the amount of paper is a lot more than most of the people would need to do the test?
3 - Do they give all notebooks to use on the entire test at once in the beginning? Or they give new ones at the start of each section?
4 - Do I need to 'close' the pen every time I am not using it? (otherwise it is going to dry and won't write anymore - I remember something like this when I took the test last year)
5 - If the pen dries, how many time does it take to be able to use again?
6 - How many pens do they give us?
7 - I bought Manhattan notebook and pen. I want to know from somebody who also has it: to what extent are they equal to the same I am going to see on the real test.

Sorry for some many questions. I am trying to get as comfortable as possible and avoid surprises on test day.
Thanks a lot.

Just found this post - looks like it has gone unanswered. Oops Here you go:

I believe you only get 1 to start with. You cannot erase your answers and if you run out of space, you will need to raise your hand to get another one, but you can't get 2 to start with.

That's right - raise your hand. The notebook is usually plenty for most people, but if you are in a habit of taking notes on RC and CR, or drawing grids for your answers, then you may run out. Usually this is not an issue.

I believe it is one per test but I don't remember

"Practice" with the MGMAT Test Simulation Booklet - it has the same brand of the marker

Don't know

It may vary - I believe 1 but you should be able to get another one

It is very close.

They give you a booklet at the very beginning. If it becomes full or you need a new pen, raise your hand and the center administrator will provide you with a replacement.

Quote:
Noteboards

The administrator will provide you with a booklet of five (5) noteboards at the start of your test. If you fill these noteboards during your test, you may request replacements by raising your hand. You may not remove these noteboards from the testing room at any time. Every noteboard must be returned at the end of the test session. You may not take your own noteboard into the testing room.
