Decent location with little drawback

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by gmat club tests [?]

This is a decent location for GMAT testing in Chicago. It's easily accessed via CTA, but there are pricey parking lots nearby, so I wouldn't suggest driving downtown unless you have parking arrangements already.

Staff were very nice and the testing areas, although stoic, were well-lit and quiet.

The building has a nice outdoor area around the building perfect for collecting your thoughts prior to testing.

Consider the Wacker location for testing if you'd rather avoid the traffic congested area around the other downtown Pearson testing facility near upper Wacker Drive by the Lyric Opera, which I can only imagine is more expensive to park near.

New Horizons Lima


This place is very quiet and it is good to take a gmat exam. if you arrive early, the employees of this place suggest you buy a bottle of water and chocolates to eat during exam breaks. These advices are great, because you need extra energy after 1 hour of exam. In the test center, they provide you headphones so that you can take a quiet exam without external noise and they provide you a lot of plastic papers that are great to solve problems of the quantitive part. The only thing to improve would be that these headphones do not squeeze so much, since after a while the ears hurt a bit. But in general, all very well with this test center.

Reliable Test Center


I have taken GMAT twice at this center located in Solitaire Corporate Park, Chakala, Andheri East, Mumbai. Test taking experience was good both the times, though scores were less than expected. Staff is polite and well trained. We can raise hands for any query during the test and the staff actively comes at our desk in no time. We get noise cancellation headphones and earplugs. We also get locker key to keep our valuables/ water bottle etc. We get two marker pens along with one 10 page laminated booklet. The marker pens were not functioning well and I had to repeatedly raise my hands to replace one after the other, overall wasting a minute during Quants section. AC temperature is comfortable. There are around 10 workstations demarcated by wall-like furniture. Overall it was a good experience except market pens issue.

Probably the best center you can get!


I recently gave my GMAT Exam (Nov 7, 2022) at Pearson Gurgaon.

The Center is located in an IT Park near MG Road Metro Station. at a walking distance, less than a kilometer. I had the 10 AM Slot. I reached half an hour before. Stayed at a hotel nearby in the same locality since I do not live in Delhi-NCR.

I already knew that the center would be decent given that Pearson manages it, but I was thoroughly impressed. The test center staff was very professional throughout my test. Lockers are available to you to keep a bag. Do wear a mask, they're pretty strict about that.

The workstations were nicely maintained, and the monitor was quite huge, maybe 27 inches or more, in size. I was also given noise-cancellation headphones. It did help during the Verbal Reasoning Section and AWA.

Overall I was quite happy with my test-taking experience at this center. If you're planning to go here and have any doubts, don't think anymore and just finalize it.

P.S. You can also take a break, in accordance with GMAT Exam Rules, but you cannot go outside the center itself. I would advise everyone to keep a water bottle, even though water dispensers are available. Same for snacks.

GATS Pune GMAT test center Review


GATS Pune GMAT test center Review
Positives about test center are
- test center was conveniently located. and two wheeler parking is available, four wheeler parking is not available, though i am not 100% of this,
- Location was easy to find and not too far from prime locations in pune city.
- staff was polite
- the noise level from external sources was none

and Negatives are restrooms are little dirty and its small test center.

There are many slots available from 9:15 AM in morning. I selected this center for two reasons, one because of its location and other because of morning slot was available at this center only.

Professionally managed, neatly upkept, conducive for a high score


After I had a terrible experience at one of the non-Pearson centers a couple of years ago, I vowed to never trust these again and go only for the Pearson VUE official centers. And writing this review after my GMAT, I couldn't be prouder of my decision. I would highly recommend this center to all test-takers in Delhi-NCR.

The Pearson Professional Center at Gurugram is conveniently located inside Times Tower, which is situated on the main MG road at a 500m walking distance from MG Road Metro Station, providing great connectivity for Yellow line suburbs. Times Tower has a professional office space environment and is leased by leading corporates, hence you will find great amenities inside the building, including a full-blown cafeteria that you can visit pre/post-exam.

The Pearson center is located on the 2nd floor. The staff inside is super polite and respectful, and infuses a cheerful atmosphere that completely eases your exam nerves. The center is huge from within, is kept very clean, has ambient lightings, and 100% sound proofing from outside. It has a has a large waiting area, spacious lockers, super clean restrooms, and 2 exam rooms which can host about 10 students each. I had an afternoon slot on a working day so I didn't find a lot of test-takers, I guess there were only about 3-4 of them.

After a quick passport scan, photograph, and palm scan, I was allotted a locker and was led to the instruction zone where one of the staff members explained me various details and another led me inside to the testing room where I was provided a large fully sanitized workstation, scratch pads, and a fresh set of markers. After that it was business as usual until I left, nothing noteworthy.

Good luck to everyone.

PS: One thing to note is that although there are digital wall clocks in the center they are easy to miss from your field of sight. Take great care to stick to the time-breaks, it is easy to overshoot them by a minute or so, like it happened once with me, and panic might set in easily if the next section is your nemesis.

Kolkata Test center


The test center located in Ganguly street could be conveniently located. I booked a morning slot. The staff was very polite and helpful. It was very hygienic and clean. All the things like sheets, pens etc were kept ready beforehand. Earplugs were provided for noise cancellation. It was already quiet though. The palm scanning process in between breaks was also smooth. The washrooms were also very clean. Separate clean lockers were provided to keep our stuff. I would definitely recommend you to take the GMAT in this particular center if you stay in Kolkata or any nearby city. Good luck with the exam.

Comfortable Test Center


I went to take my test at Barakhamba road pearson VUE .
The test center was conveniently located. Google maps showed the accurate destination and I had no problem reaching there. It's on 3rd floor.
The staff was very polite and made sure I understood everything. The restrooms were neat and clean, and there was a locker facility where you can keep your phone, water bottle, coffee etc whatever you like to much between breaks.
The staff helped me to select schools as well to whom I wanted to send my score.
The centre was quiet and peaceful. There were many people that day, the centre was almost fully booked. There was ample lighting and air conditioning. I even started feeling cold after some time. If I take test centre exam again, I will definitely visit here only again and I recommend if you live in Delhi NCR, you should opt for this test center , it is located at the heart of delhi so you can easily reach here. Parking facility id also there but not especially reserved for person vue visitors so you might not find a spot. You can park in CP as well.

Maharashtra College - New GMAT test centre in Mumbai


I took my GMAT in the new test centre that opened at Maharashtra College in Mumbai. The centre opened in June 2022. I initially had some aprehensions about this centre because it is inside a college that is very crowded. But the rooms alloted for the test centre are tucked in a corner with no disturbance at all. Since it is a new centre, there aren't many test takers there yet and it's very easy to get test slots. I booked my test for a Sunday just 1 day in advance.

The centre is easily accessible by road and other public transport as well. Overall, there were absolutely no issues with my test experience. Would highly recommend.

Did they provide noise cancelling headphones or something similar?

August 20, 2022

Yes. They provide good quality noise cancelling earbuds made by 3M.

August 29, 2022

Hi Aditya, two questions:
1. Is the centre air-conditioned?
2. Do they have individual cubicles with partitions?
Thanks in advance!

Pearson Professional Center New Delhi


Gave my first GMAT attempt at Pearson Professional Center, Ashoka Estate, New Delhi.
It was one of the best computer based testing solutions I have ever seen. I have given professional computer based exams like CFA, FRM and CAIA, so I have decent experience with pearson professional centers in different cities.
The center had a restroom and water cooler located conveniently near the testing site to minimize time wastage. They provided extra markers as well as noise cancelling headphones and ear plugs. The staff was extremely courteous and supportive.
If a need arises in future, I'd definitely give another GMAT attempt there, without having to worry about exam jitters.
