NCBMS Islamabad

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by post count [?]

My experience is detailed at the thread linked at the end fo this review. Here are the few issues I faced.

1- The first address that shows up on Google maps when you search NCBMS, ICT is their old campus.

2- The test center is a low ceiling claustrophobic rented space not suited for an engaging test like GMAT.

3- Where they sit you to verify your palm prints, there were overheated lead acid UPS batteries and their acid fumes gave me a nasty headache.

4- The mouse pad skin was flaking off. Even the replacement was not up to the mark. Do not choose this center if you have any other option.

5- The Pens did not work initially. Replacements worked for a bit and then stopped working. I found out I had to keep them running constantly or they would dry up even after a few seconds of lying idle.

6- Official Graph Paper was scratched and dust laden which made it hazy and difficult to read.

7- Toilets were outside the premises of the test center outside the locked door. There was no toilet paper and the state of the toilet was appalling. It was in no way fit for human use.

That's absolutely horrific. I am glad I booked my test with USEFP in Islamabad instead of these guys.

Review from someone in the mid of his prep

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by post count [?]

I had been relying on GMATclub workbook and other mock tests available in dumps but using GMAT club gave me a new perspective. It is extremely thorough and as close to possible to the real tests. You get a thorough explanation of every question and the best part is, the interface gives you everything you need to analyze your score and improve on the weak areas. You can sort by correct or incorrect and follow up in the review discussion on the forum. The only downside is limited subscription which I hope to extend soon.
For anyone relying on more expensive tests, give it a shot here and you will surely find the tests worth the $$$ and/or effort.
