Excellent place, near by metro station is green park.There were a lot of landmarks given so it was easy to locate.

If you are driving then finding parking space can be a daunting task so t better to take metro or auto.

Staff was very professional, made everything clear to me, they also gave me 2 markers and ear plugs without even asking.During the breaks they were quick and they valued my time.

Lockers were large enough and restroom(small) was clean.

Noise level was zero,still i got ear plugs, proper light and AC temperature was comfortable.

The computer was large it was easy to focus, mouse and keyboard were also good.

As others have mentioned, parking is a big problem in this area. You would be better of taking a cab/rickshaw or having someone else drive you to the center.

Invigilator: They were friendly and polite. Absolutely no problems here.

Test Area: is quiet but I felt that the AC was a little too cold for me. Usually I have the AC dialed in at 23F at home The test center was more like 18F. So make sure you come dressed in layers.

Test Equipment: The computers are all Dell and relatively new/in good shape. The test pads are however, not like the Manhattan Test Pads. They are a little smaller, white in color and a little worn out. Also make sure that you check your pens before entering the test area. You will also be given pink foam ear plugs and tissue paper if you choose to accept these items.

Location: Hyderabad, India

I appeared for the GMAT exam in the Pearson VUE test center in Begumpet area, Hyderabad. I was worried before entering the test center that some or other unforeseen incident might ruin my 3 months preparation and interrupt the exam, and this fear had arisen because of the several reviews that I had read regarding the problems people face in test centers. But to my luck, this center was very very professional, organized and clean. Even when I asked for 2 extra pen to carry inside the exam room , which was obliged by the test center. During the break the instructor clearly told me your break has started at this time and you need to come back by this time showing at the big clock in the center. There was a lock facility. the instructors were good listeners.
Just one small drawback of this center is its just beside the main road. The honking sound of vehicles can some time enter through the glass window but the ceter provides noise cancellation head phones. So not to worry.

Overall my experience was good. The Test center proved to be as expected from a GMAT test taker.

Location: Kolkata, India

The Kolkata Test centre is located near Kali Ghat temple. Locating the test centre took me some time. It is recommended to scout the exact location on a previous day as the center is a bit isolated and on the fourth floor of a building, whose entrance is towards the side. The building is located towards the northern-most metro exit of the Kalighat Metro station on the side of the temple itself.

On any average day, the center is free from any noise or disturbances. However, the lady in charge informed that they had re-scheduled a test day on a previous occasion due to loud speakers by a local club on probably "Rabindra Jayanti".
The lady in-charge and the test centre staff are very helpful and supportive. The centre provided me with a pair of industrial ear plugs.

The centre is a little small with 6 computers in apparently the only room,which I was seated in. There are two toilets. Arrive 30-45 mins in advance to avoid waiting for verification formalities, if the centre is full.

I've passed several exams in this test center, including 2 GMAT tests.
Overall, the test center is fine: conditions are norm, staff is friendly. I would provide several recommendations for those who are going to sit exams in the center:
1) Ensure you have appropriate clothes. There is air conditioner and heater, but if you ensure that you have a piece of clothes which you can put on or off, it can make you feel more comfortable during the exam.
2) Use the earplugs. It can happen sometimes that you hear some noise, as the test center is located within a company’s office. In addition, there will be people sitting very close to you – you will hear how nervous they are and how they type. Earplugs will help you concentrate.
3) If you wish to be the first person in line (there most probably be other people passing exam together with you – overall there are 4 places available), come earlier.
4) Also ensure you have all the information looked up before the exam – the universities you want to send the report, etc. Also be sure to have read the instructions on official website (official application with 2 GMAT exams). Then you will spend less time and be able to use it for your purposes.

This is good test center. The rest rooms are near by and the Test Center staff were really helpful. They provide you all the information and are really prompt to provide you support. The test center is easy to access and is really clean and has a good parking space. I have given the test her 2 times and I had not had any trouble in the Test center. The noise level was negligible but the room temperature was a bit cold for my liking, specially when you are not allowed to wear sweaters or jackets for the test. I would definitely recommend this test center.

Location: Columbus, OH USA

The building is easy to find itself since it has a huge Pearson sign on top of it. But once you are in the building, it is hard to navigate and figure out the actual test center. I was lucky enough that I took the exam on weekend and there were no other places open in the building but I imagine someone taking the exam on a week day would have some problems.

On the positive side of things, the staff is really professional and polite. They were kind enough not to even glance at my score paper once the exam was over. The person just saw my anxiety before and joy after and wished me the best before and after the exam, which helped me calm a little.

Overall, I would recommend this place for taking the exam on a weekend.

The scratch pads are a bit worn out but the staff makes up for it by not expecting you to erase anything.They simply provide you a new one each time you finish one. I would definitely recommend this testing centre .
Notes
They have a water cooler so you might not want to carry a bottle.
You can carry a pull over inside the testing area.
Around 13 people can give the exam simultaneously

The mumbai test centre is easy to find and close to the churchgate station. The staff is polite and that is always a good thing. The internal temperature was neither too cold nor too hot (for a change !) . The only thing you need to take care of is to double check the pens since a few of them are dried up and can stop abruptly midway through the test.
. The staff is courteous, and the place is not very difficult to find. The exam center is very quiet. During the exam, I experienced no issues and everything went flawlessly. No outside noise, very peaceful place, nice restroom facilities to freshen up. Good locker facilities

The test center is located at a distance of approximately 200 meters from the Green park Metro station. It was difficult to locate first, but after going around for 15 minutes, I was able to see the small white board with Pearson VUE written over it. It is on the fourth floor of a building near HDFC bank. My appointment was scheduled at 1300 hrs and I reached there at 1220. I was given the entry to the test center at 1235. The staff is polite and helpful. There is only one restroom and a lot of people were taking exams-not only GMAT, but i think Pearson makes the schedules keeping these things in mind. They provided me with noise cancelling headphones-something like the ones used on choppers. Noise can be heard if headphones are not used. The lighting, AC and locker were appropriate. We are supposed to track our break timing ourselves and they didn't allow me to take the break while sitting at the computer.

It was a good experience overall.
