What is the best day of the week to take the test when you have a full time job (e.g. Monday vs. Saturday/Sunday)? Obviously I would have to take a day off that day, unless it's on a weekend. Any suggestions from those who already took the test? Thanks!

I would go for Monday since I can rest on Sat/Sun but I know I will also be stressing out so much suggestion is usually to take the Sun easy and just go out in the afternoon and do something you have not done before (enjoy life a bit). then have an early evening. Eat early and go to bed at a reasonable time (not super early).

One idea is to take the GMAT 24 hrs before the test and go to bed the night before the same time you would the day before the test. I did that to "simulate" my test day with the GMAT Prep. Then took off for a few hrs with a friend of mine to hang out in the city....

There really are no good or bad days of the week. If I were to schedule my GMAT exam, it would be on Wednesday as from life experience, this is the day when my energy and focus peak. However, listen to your own body and rhythm and it will tell you which day is best. Lastly, remember that no matter what day you take the test, there is no replacement for being well prepared and dedicating the time, energy and effort that this test deserves.

I am actually trying to schedule now - I can see through April the latest, there are almost no appointments other than @ 8 am. That is the problem for me because I am not a morning person. 7 months in advance - and almost all good spots are taken!!! My husband took GMAT 2 years ago (in October) and he said he had no problem finding a good spot much less than 7 months in advance. Does this mean that more and more people are thinking about MBA, or there is some kind of seasonality in taking GMAT?

So I found one good spot at 11 am, which is a perfect time for my brain to wake up and it's Wednesday, and it kind of makes sense for me that by the middle of the week a body (my body) sort of functions better, so maybe I am going to take it. I also thought before that Monday was the best day, but only because I don't have to take days off work.

Anyway, thank you for the tips!
