Center Name : Pearson Vue
City & Country : Hong Kong, China.
Parking facility : No, this is HK, forget about car. MTR "Sheung Wang" station is 5 minutes walking. Or take a cab.
Invigilator Reviews : Professional.
Environment : Quiet. They provided earplugs. Computers OK, room OK. I'm a guy that gets distracted with any noise, but the environment was excellent. Clean toilet and drinking water provided. Lock box provided.
Rating 5/5 : 5/5

Center Name : Exxcom Education
City & Country : Brisbane, Australia
Parking facility : Nope, its in the middle of CBD. Take a train. The station is just a 5 min walk.
Invigilator Reviews : Mixed. There were two ladies there. The first one was a little mean. And she gave me one of those sheets to work on and one non working pen. So while I was writing my AWA I had to go out to get another one (my time was still running). And once my quant started I couldn't be bothered going out and looking for her so I just kept erasing on my own. then while I was 3/4ths into the quant section another guy came in to write the test and the really nice lady came in. She gave me like 7 sheets. Which were enough.
Environment : Alright. The keyboards are VERY noisy. And there are people writing all sorts of tests there. So people come and go. But it wasn't too noisy.
Rating: 2.5/5

Having said this, I don't think I was heavily disadvantaged. I got a 730 (Q49, V41). I might've done slightly better on the quant had I not spent so much time erasing. But I think its a decent reflection of my abilities so I don't have much to complain about.

For anyone who takes a test there. My friend took the GMAT 7 days before me and was given extra sheets by the nice invigilator. I suggest you ask for extra sheets early on.

Cheers!

You didn't by any chance erase with the small orange stuff like I did because they turned out to be earplugs ! I suffered the same lack of sheets issue the first time I tried it and the pen was dry so i erased with the earplugs (didn't know they were such back then!) Next time I GMATed I brought my own pen and rubber(then one for white board) but the lady there told me that I wasn't supposed to erase the sheets to start with, they never provide erasers and If i needed more space all i had to do was ask .. and thats when i figured out that I erased with earplugs thank god she didn't remember me

Center Name : New Horizons Computer Learning Center
City & Country : Sharq, Kuwait
Parking facility : Plenty. Cheap basement parking and free open parking if you can tolerate th 50 degrees heat
Invigilator Reviews : Polite and friendly but a bit noisy.
Environment : Aside from the noise from the staff chatting outside it was quiet. The test centre fits 8 people but there were 4 people there on average (Working day) and they provided earplugs but I didn't need to use them.
Rating 5/5 : 4

haha no I didn't use the earplugs (I wasn't given any to begin with). I just used my fingers and the sleeves of my shirt.

Center Name : Pearson VUE Wacker Drive (??)
City & Country : Chicago, IL, USA (Wacker Dr. location)
Parking facility : N/A (walked)
Invigilator Reviews : Very nice and accommodating. Helpful. Quick.
Environment : Testing center itself was not bad, fairly quiet, no real complaints. A bunch of construction on the lobby level of the building made it a pain to get into the building, but ended up not being a real problem.
Rating 5/5 : 4/5
Additional Info : Construction on lobby level. Have to walk around to the south entrance and buzz in (at least I did -- it was a Saturday).
Do's & Don't s : Do: kill the exam. Don't: freak out, it's just a test.

Center Name : Pearson Vue , Newark
City & Country : Newark, Delaware, USA
Parking facility : available
Invigilator Reviews : Polite, ok efficient
Environment : I found it very good. Not much noise.
Rating 5/5 : 4.5
Additional Info : toilet is about a minute away so look at it before the exam. I asked for the additional notebook and lady was very slow. I have to attempt 4-6 math questions with virtually no space left to write on. They do not have good time keeping mechanism for breaks. (I am not sure how it happens in another centers)
Do's & Don't s : Look at the center a week before. It is little hidden inside the big building.

Center Name : Pearson Vue
City & Country : Mumbai, India
Parking facility : Big problem No parking facility on site. I had to park my car in a nearby hotel
Environment : Quiet.
Rating 5/5 : 4/5 (cut one mark for parking problems)
