Wiley Platform - Quan. Questions missing symbols  [#permalink]

Hi everyone,

I have been using the Wiley Platform for my practices, and I noticed from time to time, the questions have missing symbols! I have found missing fractions, square roots, or even semi-colons (to separate 2 distinct conditions).

This frustrates me to no end since I do all my sets timed, and I end up wasting time try to solve something that didn't make sense - not to mention interfering with how I interpret/analyze the results. From the set I did just now, I missed 5/7 questions for this stupid reason! Not surprisingly, my verbal set's performance also suffered from all that emotion.

Has anyone experienced this before and know how to fix this? I don't know if it's relevant, but I am currently using Chrome.

Not sure what happened - I was able to submit a complaint so I re-login to the platform to take some snapshots, but then all the symbols are back!! What a day.

*Update* Nevermind, they vanished again.

Hi Akela,

Please see below some examples. I noticed when the symbols work properly, their font is darker and larger than the rest. Thanks for looking into this!

Hi kuja,

That's weird because it works fine on my computer. Is your Chrome browser up-to-date? If a current version of Chrome doesn't work, try to use Firefox or Explorer.

Here are the the technical requirements for the online GMAT® Official Prep platform

OS: Browser Compatibility
• Mac OSX 10.7+: the latest version of Safari, Firefox, Chrome, or Internet Explorer
• Windows 8+: the latest version of Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer
• iPhone, iPad 2, iPad 3/Air, or iPad Mini with IOS 9+: the latest version of Safari
• Android tablet or phone with OS 4.3+: the latest version of Chrome
• Windows 8 tablet: the latest version of IE

Ideal Screen Resolution: 1600x900 (browser window can be zoomed in and out for preferred view)

System Requirements
• 2.33GHz or faster x86-compatible processor or Intel® Atom™ 1.6GHz or faster processor for netbooks
• 512MB of RAM (1GB or higher recommended)

Note: the GMAT® Official Practice Questions and Practice Exams available on the platform may not function as intended if you are not using any of the browsers listed above and/or if your system does not meet the requirements listed above.

Hope this will resolve your problem. If not, I guess the best thing is to contact support:

For assistance with GMAT® Official Prep (GMAT® Official Starter Kit + Practice Exams 1 & 2, GMAT® Official Practice Questions, or GMAT® Official Practice Exams):

Email: gmatprep@mba.com
Phone (available 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. U.S. Eastern time)
+1 (703) 668-9602


Hope this helps!

Hi Akela,

Thanks for looking into this.

Just to clarify, this issue is from the Wiley Efficient Learning Platform (https://www.efficientlearning.com/login/) where the online versions of the OG, QR and VR questions are hosted, and not the GMAT® Official Prep (https://gmatofficialprep.mba.com/SarasExamPrep#/login). I haven't explore that just yet and definitely hope it doesn't have the same issue.

I do have the latest version of Chrome, and I just used Microsoft Edge to check - still missing symbols!

Hey guys,

I'm experiencing the same issue as well! Does anyone know if there was any resolution from Wiley? I am using the latest version of chrome - not sure if there is any compatibility issue.

Odd. Can you post some examples of what things your system is missing? A screenshot or two perhaps with a short description?

So as soon as I finished a quiz, I could see the symbols again in the review section and what not. I'll get a screenshot if this happens again.

What I noticed was the missing "/" signs or the sqrt signs, for example, a 2/5 would appear as a 25

Just happened to me on. Made me feel really bad cause it was just addition and subtraction (I thought) and I got it wrong. Turns out there was multiplication and division in there too...

Hi everyone,

Wiley never quite got back to me on this issue, but I found that having very stable internet seems to make this less likely to happen - try using landline instead of WiFi and see if it helps.
