This review is for: * Pearson VUE GMAT Test Center
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 center 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

I took GMAT at this location. Had a very bad experience with the seating location. First and foremost, that's a outsourced operations center. And people were working in that location. The place where I was sitting and giving the exam, was too distracting, the office printers were in the room, and some of the people were just banging the door open and coming and taking print outs. Proctors were helpless. Secondly, the drinking water was too too bad. Absolutely unhygienic. Advise all you guys to avoid this location, because its on the busiest marketplace of the city and the metro and traffic horns will distract you a lot.

Well.!!!!!!!!!!! One of the trickiest piece in the puzzle. Getting the score was not only challenging but mentally draining. Verbal RC was a pain. Woke up one morning. Decided, enough of studying, just want to go ahead and finish this last block. So just booked a random center and a random date in two days and went ahead. Okay, with the location. everything went so smoothly. Proctors were really very helpful. Did the bio-metrics and palm vein scanning and got seated. Got the AWA and IR done. Breeze past the 37 questions of Quant in 42 minutes. Took a power nap of 30 minutes. took the break and just started the Verbal. Few questions popped up in SC. and then started getting some fire bolts of CR. and with 5 minutes remaining I saw 4 questions remaining. All of them SC and just submitted. got the score.

This review is for: * Pearson VUE GMAT Test Center
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.

Location: Kiev, Ukraine

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.

Location: New Delhi, India

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

Location: Mumbai, India

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
