Location: Mumbai, India

The Think Education Advisory Services LLP test center is conveniently located at a 5 minute walking distance from Churchgate railway station. The test center is on the 2nd floor. The center was very clean and tidy. The center supervisor was friendly and strictly adhered to all the test rules. The center is equipped with washrooms as well. Before the test, as per guidelines, we were provided with locker cabinets to store our belongings. The cabinet was big enough. Inside the test rooms, the AC temperature was maintained well. The room were clean. The Supervisor checked the software settings once before he let me begin with the test. After the exam they were quick in handing out the score report.
Initially there seemed some error while scanning my fingers for bio-metric but on the second try it came out well. The test supervisor was calm through out.

Gmatclub has been helping me preparing for GMAT for the last several weeks. However, recently, i have discovered that it offers pracice tests for quantitative and verbal parts of th GMAT test. Gmatclub tests are very realistic and truly reflect what you. An expect on the test day. The variety of questions is impressive, however, it would be great to see more detailed explanations for questions. Also, it would be great to have some combined gmat tests that include both quantitative and verbal parts. The number of tests is also great, its significantly more than any other test center offers. This applies to both quantitative and verbal sections of the gmatclub tests. After trying different practice test providers, including Kaplan, Veritas and Manhattan prep, it seems that gmatclub has the most realistic and varied test questions.

This center is as good as it gets for testing. The equipment is modern, clean, and functional. It could be a little hard to find the center - especially if you drive to the test center but I called them and they gave me clear instructions. I'd recommend visiting the center a day before your test.

The staff is really pleasant. I took an extra break in the middle of a session and the lady at the desk signed me out and back in quickly knowing how valuable every minute was. I would have almost run out of time in the Quant section (I'd like to think she saved me 30 odd secs). In summary, I strongly recommend this test center to GMATers in the New England area away from big cities.

Buenos Aires GMAT Test Center

The center was not in the best condition. When I got to the center on a Monday for the GMAT Exam, I found out that they had been painting the whole weekend. Most computers were not ready, and were still covered with a plastic. The smell of fresh paint was so fresh that after the exam I had a very bad headache. The people, however, was very friendly through the whole exam. Headphones were adequate and prevented most outside noises be heard. The location of the test center is very convenient and central, with many buses and trains dropping you off at a very short walking distance.

Relaxed environment

The test center in midtown is very conveniently located to major subway lines and train stations. It is a quick walk from Penn Station if you're traveling into New York City to take the GMAT.

Definitely arrive early for your test. If testing in the morning, almost all test takers arrived before the testing center was open. Once they arrived, we all filed in, took numbers, and started the initial processing. Everyone was very friendly while passing out instructions, checking IDs and getting palm scans, and providing lockers for our belongings.

They provided us with a small set of earplugs and noise reduction/cancellation headphones for use during the test. I was the first one to enter the actual testing room, and I definitely needed the headphones because the door was quite loud opening and closing with each new person entering the room.

The bathroom is a long walk down the hallway, so exercise extreme caution if using a break to go to the restroom. Assuming nobody else is taking a break at the same time, you should be fine even with the long walk there and back.

The test center was to my surprise, very clean and professional. I say that it was to my surprise because I've heard some horror stories from my friends about his or her experiences with taking GMAT in Manhattan. However, i arrived promptly 15 minutes before my exam, and the front desk was helpful. I think the front desk has been coached or has some sense of awareness that they were very polite and courteous to not only myself, but to other test takers who arrived at the same time. The test center itself was calm, peaceful and easy to navigate. I would recommend this place to anyone commuting or living in the city to take the test.

Bring your own earplugs

The center itself is very professional, front desk was very nice and it does have lockers for you to store your belongings. It's also very easy to access as it's right beside the subway.

My biggest issue with this test center was that the earmuffs they provide are very rigid and are extremely uncomfortable. On top of that, the keyboards they use are very old and they are mechanical - so your neighbours will create a lot of additional noise. My keyboard was also not the greatest and kept dropping characters, which really impacted my writing speed for the essay.

Allahabad Test Centre

Location: Online

The Allahabad Test Centre was in the heart of the city in Civil Lines though it is now closed.I gave the GMAT there years back but the atmosphere was quite good.The staff was excellent and very helpful.Though my exam started late due to festival season the staff fully helped me.
This centre should start once again for the sole use of the students in UP.The other centre is in Lucknow which is quite far for the students based in East UP.
Therefor,for the sake of giving an opportunuty to these students the Allahabad centre should be started once again.

Location: Beirut, Lebanon

I have done two gmat exams, one in the Hamra Test Center and another in the New Horizon Test Center in downtown Beirut Lebanon. In comparison, I would definitely recommend the New Horizon Test Center given how:
1) Conveniently located it is: right in the middle of Down Town, in the Puma building
2) Despite being a bit 'hidden in the building' they were able to guide me very quickly to the location
3) The employees at the center are super helpful and efficient! They were flexible, proactively catering to my requests and even started my exam a bit earlier than my schedule as the seat was available
4) Center is quiet and calm, very good for you to concentrate
5) Center is fully equipped with latest technology, coffee and water
I would definitely recommend this center for anyone looking to take their GMAT exam in Lebanon. It helps with the its overall positive ambiance and efficient processes.

test day experience

Location: Chennai, India

Hii All,
Finally took the test.Didnt fare that well,but would still like to share the whole experience and the do's and dont's that i feel should have been followed by me.
The test center of chennai was far from where i live and it took me more than 2 hours to reach.My test was scheduled at 1 but i reached by 12 and got to start my test by 12:30 PM.
The whole process of verification of identity and biometrics was smooth and the test center was good if not great.
Since my timing was clashing with my lunch timing ,I had to carried a bottle of hydrating drinks and some chocolate bars for the breaks.
The AWA and IR went well and then i moved to the quants section after a short break.The section started well and the initial questions were pretty straignt forward.The section went well with some tricky questions appearing around Q10.Since i hadnt taken too many mock due to my extensive travelling job,I was rushing throug the section in the first half hour.This allowed me to relax a bit in the middle section but this is where i think i screwed up.I overestimated my capabilities and was in a fix towards the end of the section.I had to rush through last 4 -5 questions which i feel i got wrong and resulted in a below par score of Q45.

My take aways :How much well prepared you are or good at any topic ,taking timed test is the key for the exam day.Appearing mocks is the most important thing.Little upset but i think i can manage this animal next time.Tightening my belt and getting ready for one more shot in a short while.only worry is i am little late for 2017 cycle.

All the best to everyone else planning to write GMAT in near future.Please take aa many times test as possible.

thanks
