Hello everyone,

I am new at the GMAT club. And first, I would like to mention that it is pleasure to read postings of so many bright and determined people. Thanks!

I am planning to take GMAT at the end of 2005 or at the beginning of 2006. So, I was wondering if anyone knows if the new contract with Pearson VUE and ACT will affect the test format. Is it useful for me to study for GMAT using currently available materials and strategies?

Thanks, Nadia
:)

Probably not.

However, i have good news for you - if this is the main issue preoccupying your mind, you are doing very well on the gmat. :wink:

Thank you so much for your replies!!!!! :)

As Praetorian recommended I had e-mailed GMAC, and here is what they wrote…


Your very interesting questions - ones we considered very carefully

Thanks for posting the email for us. I am sure they will be many more members who would need this.
