BOOKMARKED
GMAC Posted a video on You Tube providing a Tour of the testing center.
If you have not taken your GMAT yet, this is highly recommended:


Also, see this post covering other elements:

gmat-testing-center-physical-environment-80167.html#p602307
8-things-not-to-do-at-the-test-center-120625.html



Information covered:
  • Registration
  • ID's
  • Photo taking (did you know that your photo will be accessible to schools?) :shock:
  • Selecting schools before the test
  • Canceling scores
  • Unofficial score reports
  • List of prohibited items
  • In the beginning the video shows paper and pencil used for scratch paper - that's wrong. It later shows the correct item - you must use a noteboard w/ Marker

The Test Center was very intimidating, but now that I am aware of it next time it won't be an issue.
