Can you still take paperbased?

I have read a few things about the old test, when it was all paperbased... anyway, let me know.

Yes, I didn;t know until few days ago.
Test location is Yugoslavia-on official gmac site there is information that in 2% of test centers-paper based is still in use.
So, can you tell me something more about it? :shock:

That's some picture :)

Here is actually what I have just learnt from John:

Quote:
Where I live, only the paper version of the test is administered and it is only offered once a year, which will be this Saturday, Feb 1st. I have decided against taking it specifically because the paper version has 56 verbal and 52 math questions which must be answered in the same 75 minutes each. ETS justifies this because questions may be skipped and returned to on the paper version. If I took this paper test, my timing would need to be as follows:

Problem Solving 1 - 16 problems in 25 minutes.
Prob. Solve 2 - 16 questions in 25 minutes
Data Sufficiency - 20 questions in 25 minutes.
Sentence Correction - 22 questions in 25 min.
Critical Reasoning - 16 questions in 25 minutes.
Reading Comprehension - 18 questions in 25 minutes.


In addition to that, you will have a few obvious advnatages:
-you can mark paper but can't mark screen
-you can skip questions and jump around
-your eyes are not as stressed

In turn for those benefits, you get more questions.

Probably the best strategy for this case will be to buy an old Kaplan Book or Official guide, before 97, cuase that's when they introduced the computer test, and use strategies from the book. Your whole strategy is going to be different.

Also, the test dates are limited to several times a year... which may suck.
