Yes, I am a bit of a complainer but I firgure this is the area to let it all out.

First of all, the GMAT is hard! When are we ever going to use this garbage again? I've talked to a number of MBA grads and they all say the same thing: "you'll never use any of it again". I must admit that I heard the same thing when I left high school. :x

Whats with Power Prep? What a joke. I think they make it easy so they can make you believe that you are smart going into the test. Not so. What's interesting is that the questions are even set up so you will feel as if you are getting them right and then BAM (cue Emeril), they hit you with a crappy score.

This brings up my final point and undoubtedly what I hate most about the GMAT. What's with all the junk in between the time you finish the test and recieve your final score? That stupid question that asks "Are you sure you want to send your mark directly to the B-school of your choice?" (or something to that effect). Here's my advice. The answer to this question is "no". Believe me.

Ahhh. Feel better already. Feel free to contribute. :-D
